This past weekend my boyfriend, sister and I went on our annual Christmas tree hunt. We drove through the lightly sprinkling snow to a sweet little tree farm in the country in search of the perfectly imperfect Christmas tree. Upon arrival, I knew I had my work cut out for me; the trees were all meticulously trimmed and far too perfect. After a bit of searching I spotted the tree at the far corner of the farm! Here is a photo summary of our exciting (and snowy!) day.
Below is a little sampling of some of my projects and ideas lately,
A completed order of gold fisherman’s knot bracelets for a lovely bride-to-be.
I have been heading up to Sugarloaf most weekends lately to take in the last bit of gorgeous winter scenery. I love spring skiing with the warm weather, sunglasses and light layers, oh and of course the mashed potato conditions! I will be making my final trip up this weekend for my last big hurrah. It is time I make the transition into spring and start thinking gardens and long bike rides!
Using recycled denim and a fun summer plaid shirt I made this apron for a friend.
I want to go on a road trip this summer and while I was in the check out line at the grocery store I spotted this month’s issue of Down East magazine. The feature story has provided great inspiration for this summer’s adventure! Let the planning begin!!

Here is the custom wedding invitation package I designed for my dear friends Dave & Tricia. (I also created their Save-the-Dates.) The newlyweds spend much of their time outside by the ocean and in the mountains exploring, this became the foundation for our inspiration. Together the bride and I developed the palette and graphic approach. Since it was a winter wedding I designed the invitations with snowflakes and on the day of the wedding a blanket of snow covered the city! It was so picturesque. Cheers to the happy new couple!

Saturday I accompanied my boyfriend to The Balsams Resort in New Hampshire for a telemark festival. The car ride through the mountains was picturesque as we drove through a flurry of flakes to our destination. The Resorts architecture paired with the landscape made me feel like I was in the Swiss Alps. Upon arrival we checked out our demo gear and hit the slopes. After years of alpine skiing under my belt it was very humbling to strap on the tele skis and make my first run down the slope. I took a lesson in the morning broke for a gourmet Norwegian buffet and headed back out into the little snow storm for an afternoon lesson. After reflecting on yesterday’s adventure I can say I am hooked.
