A Temporary Downsize (also entitled, I Haven't Lived in an Apartment Since the Reagon Era...help!)

2011-08-16T18:11:12.589-07:00

We accidentally sold our house really fast (who knew?) forcing us to move 4 cars, two college students, one teenager, and a dog, from three thousand square feet into a 1500 sq ft apartment for 4 months. But strangely enough, it's been a fun summer! Being a compulsive organizer with an online business, the real challenge was finding space for my vintage STUFF, while keeping our smaller living space uncluttered. So, my work just became the decor, featured here. [...]

The birds have returned to our trees this week, so here's an "ode" to one of the great bird men: John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an American artist, well known for his beautiful drawings and paintings of birds, mammals, plants, and other subjects from nature. Shown here are some of his original works from a 1937 book, and cards crafted from those pages which were damaged, perfect for birthdays, Mother's and Father's Day. Celebrate the coming of Spring!

In a fight with God

2010-10-20T12:30:26.441-07:00

(image)
I was in a fight with God for a while; not because of circumstances (he has always been very nice to me) or facts (very long and cool quote coming on that) but over the basic unanswerables that we come up against in life. And when that happens, it takes time (minutes to years) to hash it all out, and then choose to believe, or not, that God is still who he says he is, and is still good. And that, I suppose, is what faith is- faith is sometimes BECAUSE of, but often faith is usually IN SPITE of.

"My most recent faith struggle is not one of intellect. I don't really do that anymore. Sooner or later you just figure out there are some guys who don't believe in God, and they can prove he doesn't exist, and some other guys who do believe in God and they can prove he does exist, and the argument stopped being about God a long time ago and now it's about who is smarter, and honestly I don't care. I don't believe people ever walk away from God for intellectual reasons. People walk away for social reasons, identity reasons, deep emotional reasons, the same reasons any of us do anything."
-Don Miller, Blue Like Jazz

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this :)

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Part One

2010-08-22T17:22:42.178-07:00

My husband has always been a genius at vacation planning, and this summer's trip was no exception. With a lot of planning, and a little wizarding luck, we not only vacationed at Universal Studios during the week before the official, not jammed with a million people, opening of the Wiarding World of Harry Potter, we also stayed on the same hotel floor as most of the cast!! Enjoy the pics of Harry's world and Hogwarts friends, plus my new line of Owl Post Notes journals, inspired by Hedwig, of course.More Photos later![...]
