Amaia goes to the farm!


We recently had a rare Friday afternoon off with absolutely nothing to do (laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc. don't count here) so we packed up and headed over to our town's community farm to make lots of new animal friends!



Here are three quick reasons why we love this place: 1) it's free 2) it's all organic and 3) it is super toddler/kid friendly. They even have a toddler garden where everything is at Amaia's level and perfect for exploring. She was in heaven! This is Amaia's first time ever seeing chickens, cows, pigs, and goats, so it was truly an honor to witness her discovering such a new world for the first time. There was a lot of hooting and hollering coming from her direction. This is something I never thought about before being a mom, so I truly treasure moments like this.




I can remember coming here as child myself to learn about making maple syrup and how to plant seeds, so I'm super excited to bring Amaia here. They offer tons of educational programs for kids & adults, so it's a great family place. They also sell organic produce harvested onsite, seedlings, eggs, maple syrup, meats, wool, and livestock.






Have a local community farm in your area? Be sure to check them out! It's basically my life dream to be a farmer, so it's fun to pretend for the day, right? Not to mention, supporting local farms is super important!

Until next time!

Bamboo Cutlery Sets

Friends! It's been a while since I last posted on here, but I am listing some awesome new bamboo cutlery sets tomorrow so I wanted to pop back on and give you a quick sneak peek! This is a product I've been dreaming up for quite some time. When I started my shop a few years back, my goal was to make products that help people move towards a "zero waste" lifestyle. Combing that goal with my love of creating and sewing, I started a small Etsy shop and decided to blog along the way. Admittedly I got a little distracted over the years (pretty fabrics and zipper pouches, what can I say!), so I'm eager to get back on track and bring you more eco-friendly handmade goods. But have no fear, my zipper pouches are not disappearing! I'm certainly not a sustainability expert, but my background is in biology and public health and I love brining that knowledge out here. I'm hoping to share more on what I am doing in my own home to make small, eco-friendly chang

October 2018 Favorites

October is easily one of my favorite months of the year. So I'm very excited to share my favorite items from this past month. Here we go! 1. Little Women - Rifle Paper Co. edition : We took a trip to Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA this month to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary (we got married at Fruitlands!). I always make a point to pick up a little keepsake when we make the trip out there. The week we visited was the same week that Emma Watson was in town filming Little Women (eek!) so of course this made the perfect souvenir! And on top of all that, the cover is designed by Rifle Paper! 2. Halloween sewing: After about 8 different costume ideas, Amaia finally decided on being Dani Dennison from Hocus Pocus. I sewed together a skirt, shirt, and hat along with a crocheted scarf. All in all it took about one weekend to make, but it was SO fun to put together. 3. Fall zippers & fabric: I've shared these prints on Instagram quite a bit, but I absolutely lov

Around here!

Oh hey there! I have not forgotten about you little blog. Life has just gotten a bit crazy these days. With work, the shop, our little Amaia, friends, family, sewing, etc. etc. etc., writing has been put on the back burner. But, that doesn't mean that the shop hasn't been making tons of progress during that time. Since we last talked, we've done five farmers markets (more on that later!), gone through our first holiday season, added a new machine to our shop, continued to sell on Etsy , and gained lots of new followers over on our Instagram page. My original goal with this blog was to share my journey of starting a handmade business. And that's just what I plan to do. So here's what you can expect from here in the near future: sewing tips, info on vending at farmers markets, background on why eco-friendly products are so important to me, and a glimpse into our little shop. Right now we are gearing up for our next farmers market. Which means every table surfac
