Just quickly adding this free use graphic I doodled while trying to process everything going on in the world lately. Much love.
I’ve been intending for a while now to release some free prints for personal use, and it finally occurred to me that this site would be the best way to do so. In desktop view you should be able to find the link to the Free Printables main page and subpages on the top of… Continue reading Prints page open
I’ve been putting some thought into the why’s and how’s of my creative endeavours lately. In the past year, outside of some home renovations, I did not really make time for any creativity whatsoever for a large part of the year. I was busy, stressed, and tired and could not find it in me to… Continue reading Chasing Creativity
There’s no right or wrong way to do a bun, but I get asked about mine from time to time, so I thought I would put together a quick video on how I do it. You want to start with messy hair – the messier the better, and at minimum you want second day hair.… Continue reading Quick Bun Updo – ponytail elastic only!
My girls were fighting from the start this Sunday morning. Somewhat like the disciples at Passover, they fought over their position at the table, but clearly and unfortunately nobody was trying to be nearer to Jesus. They fought over wording, they fought over seating, they fought over who got the mirror in the bathroom, they fought over which direction they were facing in their seats as the three of us got in the vehicle and headed off to church and which way whose arms were bent. I’d been banging my head against a wall with them all morning. I had scolded, I had reminded, I had yelled from across the house, I had come back and scolded again.
The definition of insanity, I’m told, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Watch for new content starting in the next few weeks!
Oh man, I blinked and two months passed! Or maybe I fell asleep. Probably I was wading through life with 5 kids and homework and bedtimes and naps and chores and fighting and feeding and loving. Fall is a busy season at work and at school, so why not add a baby in the mix,… Continue reading Impressed to be Dressed
On October 4, I turned 30. On October 5, I was called in to be induced. On October 6 at 5:30 am, Hunter James Versteeg was born.
I’m a pretty big fan of raglans. They’re a quick and easy sew, with no sleeves to set in, and colour blocking is built right in. They are a fantastic way to showcase a favourite knit fabric, and as a super bonus, they are very comfortable as the shoulder cut allows for a wide unrestricted… Continue reading Rag-tag boys
I’ve got a long torso for my height to begin with, so much to my irritation even maternity tops start to get a bit short on me by the third trimester. This round, I’ve been making the Patterns for Pirates Free Spirit Tank. As a note, this is not a maternity pattern. I’ve made three… Continue reading DIY Maternity – Free Spirit Tank
