ruffling

work1


architectural engineering (in primary colors, of course)

work2


appointments with photoshop and etsy and flickr and webmail (but apparently not with dusting my keyboard...yikes)

work3


the making of happy, zany things

in stitches.


and enjoying this rowdy crew (which is hands down the best line item of my job description).

work4

work5

work6

work7

i hope to take a very late retirement.

Am I right in guessing that the adorable guy on the right side of photos is the rule-abider of the bunch??

Your photos and your words are so inspiring! I'm thinking I need to plan a trip where you teach me to sew. Sound good? Good.

Cute kids and cute heart card!

I was back at the ol' BC stomping grounds this morning, swept up in a bit of nostalgia (especially with the ethanol-scented air)...it was fun, but I couldn't help thinking, "I had no idea back then how fantastic my life would become..." Ya know?

Jen Shults said...

Your babies are beautiful Nic! Yup, it's unanimous all righty, that is hands down THE best job in the world!

I froze in my chair upon seeing your sewing machine. My mom had the same one and that is the one I grew up learning to sew on. She later passed it down to me and it is to this day still my favorite machine to use. Real workhorse.
God bless,
Susan

Your pictures are beautiful--and so are your dc! My hubby gave me that same sewing machine for a birthday gift in Nov.! Now to learn how to use it . . .It was so exciting to see you use one. Thank you for encouraging this fellow-homeshooling mama :-)

Jen said...

Looks like you love your work!

Mary Rogers said...

do you have the world's most beautifully adorable sewing machine ? I submit that you, indeed, do.
Also, those little people and their smiles are pretty amazing too.

Susie said...

awesome! seeing your sewing machine brings back such great memories of my grandma--she had the same one and created many wonderful quilts and kiddie outfits with it :)
