artifact uprising (+ a giveaway!) (1)

happy monday, folks! it’s no secret that i love artifact uprising. after discovering them a few years ago, i began making photo books each year for our family and the little library of our lives is always so much fun to flip through!

inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible
, their mission is to breathe creativity, passion and community back into our stories. their products are as beautiful as their mission. their photo books, postcards, prints and calendars are printed on 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper and their wooden products are made from fallen waste wood.

sweet as honey pillow cases (6)

hey everyone! i’m so excited that TODAY is my turn to contribute to the sweet as honey blog tour! (yes, i put myself on the schedule. i couldn’t resist joining in on the fun! #dork.) i’ve been determined to spruce up our guest room for a while now and decided that the all white bed needed some colorful pillow cases and lots of pillows. i mean, can you ever have too many pillows? i actually made 8 pillow cases, but that many pillows on the bed just looked ridiculous. so six it is.

sweet as honey pillow cases (2)

for this project, i used missouri star quilting co’s super easy video tutorial on how to make a tube pillow case. i also (of course) used my latest fabric line sweet as honey and even threw in a little of my first line, reminisce. see it? since the video does such a great job showing step by step instructions, i decided not to include a tutorial here but instead direct you to their video. you can watch it here.

to prep for this project though, all you need is:

- 3/4 yard for the case
– 9″ coordinating strip for the cuff
– 2″ coordinating strip for the trim

there’s a really fun trick to this project that i can’t quite wrap my brain around. basically, you roll everything up into a tube, sew a little and out comes a pillow case. (haha!) the video tutorial does a nice job at explaining the entire process though and it’s very easy to follow.

sidenote: you could also easily use this technique to make pretty hemmed curtains, table runners, skirts and more!

i think it has added just the right punch of color to this room (though i should probably go a head and apologize to all of david’s cycling buddies that will be staying here, surrounded by flowers. sorry guys!).

if you haven’t already, be sure to hop on the sweet as honey blog tour! we’re about half way through and it’s been so much fun to see what everyone is making! be sure to check out nancy’s beautiful pillow on owen’s olivia from yesterday and follow the tour on monday with cindy’s project over on schoolhouse patterns. you can also catch up and see the full schedule here.

plant based dinner ideas

this week’s meals have been both delicious and superbly nourishing. cold weather hit again, so i immediately jumped back in to making soups and using hearty grains like farro and millet. isn’t it funny how our food and cravings change with the weather? it’s tough to say, but our favorites would probably have to be the miso tahini soup and baked farro with butternut squash. yum yum!

monday: creamy broccoli white bean soup
tuesday: green powerhouse pesto plate
wednesday: 9 vegetable hot & sour soup
thursday: baked farro with butternut squash
friday: miso tahini soup

what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?

we follow a whole foods, plant based diet. the dinner ideas posts are a way for me to log our dinners, how we make eating this way easy, and hopefully inspire you to try some new things as well. they are always meat free, dairy free and often gluten free. you can follow the posts here, and i encourage you to share your favorite recipes with us as well!

no such thing as a green thumb

well, isn’t that the truth? this sentiment, beautifully illustrated by justina blakeney, really hit home with me. i like to say i have a ‘murky green thumb‘, but in reality i just don’t do my homework. i’m determined to change that! justina encourages us to bring home a new plant and then do our homework. google it. learn what kind of light it likes and how much water it needs. if it looks sad, move it into another window. love your plants. what do you think.. yes?

look at those legs!

images clockwise: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

my latest home interior obsession? legs. though i’m a lover of all kinds of unusual legs, i’ve been especially inspired by the hairpin variety lately. don’t they give a beautifully unique and modern feel to the furniture they hold? between some old barnwood i have and maybe a tree slice, i’m planning to make a few simple side tables soon and will be using hairpin legs (available here) to support them. i’ll be sure to share them with you when i’m done!

pick'd market

just a quick announcement that march’s pick’d market is now open! i was honored to collaborate with kim davis from oh sweet joy to curate this month’s theme. i’m also thrilled to debut 3 new 8×10 prints, exclusively available in the pick’d market (see top row above).

what is pick’d? joining the pick’d club gives you exclusive discount codes to use both at the pick’d market and at the vendor’s personal shops. two ‘member-only’ newsletters go out each month. the first includes a set of mood board inspired print-ables which include notecards, prints, smartphone and desktop wallpapers. the second newsletter announces the market and includes discount codes for you use while you shop. however, you don’t have to join to shop the market.

march’s market includes all new items from: oh sweet joy, going home to roost (that’s me!), amy cornwell, fabric and handle, sweet auburn studio, moriah sunde, and the felt flower shop. all featuring brand new items with florals, stripes or leather, of course!

 the market is only open for one week and only has a limited number of items available, making their debut this week. a portion of march’s sales will also go to the acts 29 church planting network.
