For my first five years of elementary school, I went to school about two miles from my grandparent’s home at the same school where my mother also taught. Often in the afternoon on the way home from school, we would stop by their home to chat, visit, pick something up, or drop something off. The first names that I used […]
Although it has been some time since I’ve posted, I’d thought I’d feature a project that I really enjoy knitting for friends–bracelets! I recently made this bracelet for an amazing lady’s birthday present. Before sealing it up in the gift box, I took a few pictures for julepstyle.

It’s been entirely too long since I’ve posted something I made. It’s mainly b/c I keep forgetting to take pictures of things before I give them away. Anyway, I embroidered these onesies for my cousin’s baby-coming-in-September using some of Jenny Hart’s patterns. I can’t believe my cousin’s going to be a mom, but I know she will be an awesome, […]
