what a mess

the dogs were playing rough this morning and poor pee wee ended up with a little cut on her ear- she kept shaking her head and opening it up again (blood spraying everywhere) so we had to bandage it down onto her head. merry christmas...

best buds

the light is really nice this morning and these guys were feeling very photogenic.

new ring

we decided to get a new couch for christmas this year and not get any gifts for each other- but matt gave me this yesterday. i am not a big jewelry person (especially rings), but i love it so.

hot toddy

we made my favorite holiday drink made with whiskey, lemon, honey, and cloves- perfect for warming up on a chilly day...


i just finished up these felt stump ornaments for the fair next weekend- i will also add a few to the shop this morning! they are hand-silkscreened onto tan and cream wool felt, and then sewn together with a dark brown back and little loop for hanging. the cream "top" is a separate piece that i cut out and sewed onto the tan.

stump totes

the totes i had printed arrived yesterday! i think they turned out really well. i'll put both in the shop tomorrow- perfect for gifting...

oh joy!

the lovely joy (from one of my favorite blogs, oh joy!) was kind enough to ask me to participate in her "currently loving..." series. the series has different artists and designers capture a moment of their style and what they are loving right now. check out the full post here!
