It never fails. Even if it's still 90 degrees outside, as soon as school starts and September rolls around  I get the urge to cruise the yarn aisles at the craft store, pin new crochet patterns, and dive into a cozy project. With my friend Heather's baby shower just a few days away I decided to give my new GIANT crochet hook a try. Thanks to a huge hook, super bulky yarn, and a simple single crochet pattern, I satisfyingly whipped up a soft and sweet baby blanket using a free thirty minutes here and there throughout the week. The baby's gender is still a surprise and the Bethunes are a hip, modern couple so I wanted something different then your average pink or blue baby blanket.

Hudson surprised me with a Aero Press this week! He didn't know I'd been wanting one for awhile now. He just knew I liked coffee and thought I'd like it. He set it all up and made the first (and second, and third, and....) cup for me. So sweet!

Perfect timing because Daniel and I have been working nights to put together a pitch for our next music video project. I rearranged our bedroom into a bedroom/studio and as soon as the boys go to bed at night, you can find us working right here past midnight.

Here's a sneak peek at what we're working on! This was truly a collaborative piece. I drew the house, Daniel drew the characters, and then we passed it back and forth to color. Hopefully we'll get the green light on the project and will be able to tell you more about it soon!

Happy September!
