I have a story that I am unsure if I have ever shared with you. I don’t think I have, and it’s one that has been on my heart a lot lately. It’s a time in my life not too different than the season I find myself in right now, full of change, uncertainty and …

It’s raining in the Northwest (shocking I know) so I cleaned up my studio area (which is half playroom/Lego Mecca and half my space) and I am going to try and create my little heart out this weekend. Since I have been blogging I have written I think one …

It’s the middle of February and many of us are ready for some sun and a break from bitter cold temperatures.  Y’all back East are covered in many feet of snow, and we have had enough rain for a century in the Pacific Northwest. One thing for sure is, our hands and feet get especially …

Feeling Kilim-icious on the blog today, are you obsessed with these too? #kilim #twelveOeightblog #DIY #homedecor  
source  I find myself fairly obsessed with Kilim rugs right now. Ok, you got me, it’s been a while now.  If you follow me on Pinterest you know already. They are beautiful, and their lightweight blanket-like nature makes them so perfect for layering on top of another material like a sisal rug. source Or on …

While January and a New Year holds so much hope and promise, sometimes we are just not feeling it. Or see it, no matter how hard we look. Maybe we are exhausted from battle, and an ongoing challenge rolled right into the New Year with no regard to our wishes for it to be over. …
