under construction

hey all! as you may have noticed, my blog has been under a bit of construction. i am in the process of combining my 2 blogs, business and personal, so i’m slowly taking the archives from the pleated poppy blog and putting them on here. and hello and welcome to my friends from the pleated poppy!

many changes are to come. i will be letting you all know about the latest with the pleated poppy, fun bits of inspiration, and sales (!), but even better… my blog is getting a make over! i keep playing with it myself, but soon i will have a real fancy blog. so please hang in there with me as we go through this transition – i can’t wait!



my husband has been gone for a few days and i usually get so much done while he’s gone. i don’t know why. maybe its because i can’t seem to go to bed at a reasonable hour when he’s not here. like if i stay up really late he might actually come home days early? no sense in that. but getting lots done while he’s gone is fun to surprise him with.

like this: i cleaned up our closet/laundry room. a few days ago you couldn’t see the top of the washer and dryer. the stack of sheets needs to be refolded, i see now.

and when my husband left, i seriously don’t know how he packed. the carpet was buried under a couple feet of laundry – it was all clean, but still ridiculous. you’d think it would be so easy to put away laundry when your laundry room is in your closet. but its actually easier to just throw your clean clothes on the floor behind you.

i actually cleaned my closet. like cleared out the old, wiped down the shelves, ironed and ironed and ironed, and did loads of laundry. it’ll be a mess by tomorrow, guaranteed. but for now, its my favorite room of the house.

and my late nights were spent mostly on these little piles. what you see are the beginnings of crayon rolls, zippered pouches, notebook covers, tea towels and reversible headbands. so many hours to produce such tiny things. so many hours left to finish them.

only 1 hour ’til the hubs is home. yay!
