woodland pie party (with a fabulous pie bar!)

What better way to ring in fall than with a pie party (complete with a pie-tasting buffet of course).

Pair the Pie Monster with the fact that there is this magical-woodland park here in Saipan and, really, it was only a matter [...]

It’s funny the power that the seasonal rhythms hold over my creative mind- I am living in the land of endless summer (well, currently the land of crazy rain and typhoon warnings, but you get my drift).

Piper Jane wanted a sparkle party this year for her fourth birthday (well, actually, she wanted another sprinkle party… and then decided that a sparkle-party-with-lots-sprinkles would work instead). It’s such a fitting theme- that girl just exudes sparkles. So while I edit five hundred pictures, I thought I’d share the leather star garland how to. [...]

I absolutely love throwing smaller parties- I don’t do it very often (haha), but I love it! The two best parts of a more intimate gathering?

As we got ready to sell our house and leave Denver, we played a game with all of our furniture called “Sell or Store.” Almost everything went into the “Sell” category (our house buyers were the primary recipients of our Sell furniture), but there were some pieces of furniture that were either sentimental (everything from [...]
