Because, Babies

January 22, 2016

 

I stumbled upon some footage I had recorded last year during a blanket photo shoot, and it was so darling! This week I tried my hand at some light video editing and had so much fun in the process. That is, with the exception of trying to upload it to facebook and the sound quality being deteriorated; very frustrating.

So, here is my little helper and some sweet blankets and a temporary satiation of my incessant need to create!

Promises, Lies, & Fear of Trust in Bangladesh

March 15, 2019


Our production partner, Basha, began in one little office in Dhaka, Bangladesh — the most densely populated city in the world. Over the many years they have been in business, creating kantha textiles & jewelry, they have expanded: both in number of staff, and also locations.

It was helpful for some women to leave the norm of their old life environment, to get away, to start fresh in a new city. So, Basha created different offices in varied locations. They established a girls' home to safely house daughters & other vulnerable young women as they come of age.

Can I Bring A Blanket Onto a Plane?

March 01, 2019

As I was packing for our first family international flight (to London UK), I wanted to make sure that we had everything we needed to make our overnight journey the most comfortable.

Can I bring a blanket onto a plane?

In short: YES! According to the TSA you are allowed to both check a blanket in your luggage and to bring a blanket on a plane within a carry-on (and this also includes electric blankets). You can even bring your own blanket in your arms as you would a jacket or hat, without it counting towards your carry-on or personal item limits or paying any extra fees.

Do I Need A Budget? YNAB Review From A Reluctant Budgeter

February 23, 2019


When I got married as a baby (4 days over 21), I was still a student. Then, we both worked for a bit, then we had babies, and then my husband was a student. For almost all of those years, our "budget" was: try to not spend money.

This head-in-the-sand tactic has served us... ok... BUT, now that I'm pretending to be a real grownup (at age 35 — youngest children tend to be late to the responsibility party), I'm taking a new approach!

After Christmas, I started using You Need a Budget (YNAB) to track every expense & plan for future spending. Two months in, here’s what I think.
