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 WayRead more
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

I would gravitate toward something modern in a neutral color. Ben would choose one more basic or rustic in an earthy
All Heads On DeckRead more
As our children enter their middle-grade to teen years, our schedules grow fuller with practices, games, and lessons.

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!Read more
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
If It’s Broke…Read more
Early adopters, modern pioneers, on the cutting edge…nope, nope, and nope. None of the above apply to us. Where’s the box for “occasionally, reluctantly updating”? We tend to make do. In fact, in our world that old adage – you know, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it” – sometimes becomes “even if it is broke, don’t fix it.” We
