    How We Spent Our Summer Vacation

    Your Gatski correspondent has been summering with the children. While we did our fair share of cleaning cupboards, closets, and under beds (though you wouldn’t know it the way by looks now!), we also fully embraced baking projects, library visits, pool time, craft workshops, sports pursuits…and, notably, several adventures with Grandma and Nana. The kids are lucky to have two

    Q&A Between Us In tribute to the lighter days of the season, I thought it might be fun to do a little Q&A – to show you how differences can live happily between Ben and I! What would surprise people about you? Ben: I can butcher pigs, and make scrapple (a Pennsylvania Dutch staple). Kate: Give me a fast car

    Our Own Way

    While Bob Ross has us believing in “happy little clouds” and “happy little trees,” an artistic pursuit is not always so, well…“happy.” I often feel like, dare I say it, there is tension in it. We find ourselves stretching to create something unexpected while also trying to build upon well-established designs. This can feel like more like tug-of-war, and less

    Not Alone

    The truth is, we have a hearty dose of “I’ll just do it myself” around here (also known as stubbornness). It can get the job done, but it doesn’t always make for the best results. It’s taken us a bit longer to learn that, well…we can’t do it alone. We just shot a new video with Tyler (watch it here).

    Defining a Gatski

    “Um, that one!” I exclaim. Ben points in the other direction and says, “How about that one?” If we were to imagine that Ben and I were picking out a sofa, it’s likely we would each choose something different. I would gravitate toward something modern in a neutral color. Ben would choose one more basic or rustic in an earthy

    All Heads On Deck

    As our children enter their middle-grade to teen years, our schedules grow fuller with practices, games, and lessons. This likely comes as no surprise to many of you, but it is something we’re having to grow accustomed to. What was once “all hands on deck” is now “all heads on deck.” It’s more of a brain game – whether it’s

    Spring Fever!

    We created just a couple new pieces in January! We must have had some serious spring fever! We always say that we “create what we can see or imagine before us.” Seeing that first Robin in spring is always an exciting moment! We definitely enjoy sharing our hilltop with the Robins. And, we’ve certainly been sharing the garden with many
