What I’m Lovin’ in March

Same old story…I’m late again! But this list was worth sharing 😉

I’m working on changing the format of these monthly posts (again) – I’ve tried to limit text and pictures in an effort to share more content. Let me know what you think!

Now on to what I’ve been lovin’ this month…

1. The summer Suki Kimono sewn by I Sew, Therefore I am featuring a fun Novelty Fabric

Beck also shared about insects getting into the wool fabric in her stash – there are some great tips shared by her readers in the comments to help prevent this.

 2. Dax Shepard’s interview with John Gottman on his podcast, Armchair Expert

Ironically (because his research focus is marital success), my husband sent me this podcast episode. I’m also enjoying following The Gottman Institute on Instagram.

 3. Reflecting on this article from Vox about how the knitting community is reckoning with race

A very important discussion around diversity in the world of makers has been stirring lately. I always appreciate when people share so openly about their experiences.

 4. Sarah Kirsten‘s newly released Raspberry Rucksack pattern

Sienna of Not A Primary Color shared all about her version sewn during testing – what a timeless design!

Check out some of the others on Instagram – I’m swooning over this one!

 5. Viewing things I’ve sewn as Craftefacts

Felicia’s post on The Craft Sessions blog about how the artefacts we create allow us to connect to a larger purpose, act as a reminder of what we are capable of, and carry our history forward spoke straight to my heart.

 6. How relatable this article about the modern trap of turning hobbies into hustles was

Creating is about so much more than money (because if you’ve ever made anything yourself, you know turning a profit is only possible if your time is of no value).

 7. Amy Schumer is pregnant! (and she let the New York Times post a picture of her running naked in a field)

I love Amy Schumer.

 8. These Do’s and Don’t’s for sharing your children’s photos online

A bit fear-inducing, but important to be aware of as we parent this generation. If you’re interested, you can read more about ‘sharenting’ here.

 9. This list of children’s books with strong female characters

Andy has several of these books that are some of her favorites – I’ll be adding several others to her wish list! We’re gifting one of the books to a friend who is turning one this month.

 10. Knowing the key to raising a successful kid without over-parenting

What a great TED Talk!

International Women’s Day was earlier this month (3/8) and I shared the photo below on Instagram. Raising a daughter feels like the heaviest task that’s ever been placed on my heart, the wildest adventure I could’ve ever imagined, and more fun than my dreams captured.

I took the photo one afternoon while we were playing on the lawn. Andy has just learned to stand on her own without holding on to anything. What a deep lesson her new skill is teaching me 😉

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
