Introducing the first official Misfit Dolls!

(well, sort of, the very first Misfit went to my niece, naturally)

These two, however, just moved into the ETSY shop and can’t wait to be adopted.

Stay tuned, soon more stuffed pals will be  joining the Misfit crew.

these quick shots are sort of a side photo project as I make, make, & make some more.

when I am in my  workshop sometimes I can’t help but pause and snap a few.

the light, the colors, the textures, the progress.

apple picking

one of the perks of country living. apples right from the tree and pumpkins fresh from the vine.

As I build my website for crafternoons with friends, I am discovering many new ways of playing with words, which I love. I made a word cloud for crafternoons which is shaped liked a tree and really adorable, you’ll get to see that one soon. I had so much fun putting it together I decided to make one for this blog as well. Also, I feel I should also mention that I have made one for all of my favorite blogs (because I’m a nerd like that).

It has been quite some time since my last post. First, summer camp consumed me, it was fantastic! and made for the longest summer season ever. Camp has been over now for a little over a month and I am filling the newly extra hours with big ideas and dreams. The plan is to get back into the blog with focus on these big ideas.  The Misfit Collection is coming together and I am so excited about it’s re- launch this winter with the introduction of The Misfits! So, stay tuned for that (broken sewing machines have put this project on hold too many times). Also, I am making great strides in an endeavor that will give me the chance to teach art to youngsters, one of my favorite things. Crafternoons with Friends will make its official appearance in a few weeks. The website is being designed now, and I also plan on giving crafternoons a blog of its very own.

The colors that surround us as fall takes over have been so inspiring. We have almost completed our first full year here in Massachusetts and we are so happy with the move. There is so much to be grateful for, so many blessings, and so far to go. The journey is the greatest part and I am loving this ride.

Moments

She was holding my hand so tightly.

It reminded me that life is all about baby steps and having a hand to hold along the way.

w e e k e n d – into the woods

a few days amongst the trees, the birds, the ripples in the pond.

foraging for wood – building fires. counting shooting stars.

rays of sun & drops of rain.

big love.
