The Post Where I Admit I’m Better at Public Speaking than Cleaning Toilets

I’m beyond excited to announce something big in my life: I feel very privileged to have been asked to be a panel speaker at Altitude Design Summit this January in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Holland at Large: Other Places to You’ll Find Me this Month

It’s no secret that around here, I’m just blogging for the fun of it.  But I do venture out of Holland on business on a regular basis, contributing research and writing to bloggers that have pretty amazing sites.  I’d be delighted if you’d stop by and check out the neat-o ideas I’ve discovered and shared […]

Catching Up with Holland

Hello, Friends!  It’s been so long since we’ve chatted.  While moving across the country really was a good excuse for temporarily neglecting my blog house, now that we’re getting more settled that excuse is starting to wear thin.  In the last couple of weeks, I did get to travel back to lovely Cache Valley for […]

At Home with Erin from Sunnyside Up

I’m so excited to welcome Erin from Sunnyside Up to Holland, today!

At Home with Lyndsey of The Stationery Place

Lyndsey is another friend that I met at Alt Design Summit this winter.  (This seems to be a recurring theme…want to make some friends?  Go to Alt Summit.)  I’m not sure if I remember the particular class where we met, because Lyndsey was someone that I just kept running into.  I enjoyed every minute that […]
