FBF // Work it, Wendy!


It’s not everyday that we source a shoot location that comes equipped with the perfect puppy-model. And believe me when I say that when we do, we get a model release form signed and we put that puppy in a book!


Wendy was the sweetest and added the perfect touch of hominess to Alyce Blyth’s beginner sampler book, Mini Masterpieces, for Lucky Spool.


LOOKING BACK // Pretty Scissors

Sometimes when I’m stuck I find myself scrolling through work that we’ve done in the past. Maybe it’s a way to remind myself of where we’ve been, that work comes and goes and to let myself be okay with taking time to reflect and just enjoy what’s right in front of me.

A few years ago now, I bought this pair of scissors at QuiltCon, they stopped me in my tracks and I had to have them. Confession: I have never actually used them, I just love the way they look.


Never one to say ‘no’ to a fun photo opp, Nissa let me stage a shot of the shiny sheers atop a piece of beautiful found wood beneath the most perfect window light. I could look at this image all day…the smooth metal juxtaposed with the rich, textured wood is, to me, perfection.


I encourage you to take a minute to notice and get lost in the beauty of something around you. It might even be something you made. We can get so caught up on creating the next best thing, it’s okay to take a minute to love something you’ve already done.
