My morning, in macro. Trimming Flying geese, chain piecing, green smoothie, soaking beans, and the back door wide open to feel the fall air and the wind in the trees. Also, planning a fun giveaway when I hit 17k 😬 How’s your morning been, lovelies? #showmethemoda #mamascottagefabric #whatsfordinner
The colors on my cutting mat are making me happy today. ❤️💛💚💙 Mama loves her color--for years and years she had an every-two-week appointment to "get my nails done." She would come home every time with the exact same shade of sparkley pinky-red on those nails--and every time she'd swear she chose a different color, just to mix things up a bit. 😂 it became a bit of a running joke. When she got a new car, (and another after that, two decades later!) she would always say she bought her car to match her nails. 🙂💅🏼 If it's pink, or her close cousin, purple, Mama loves it. Happy Tuesday friends. Make it full of happy color!

Sitting here in the quiet after Hazel is in bed and the rest of the family is off at soccer--and I'm just feeling so darn lucky that I get to make pretty things--and help other people make pretty things--for my JOB. I mean, it doesn't get better than that. Being a creative is rough sometimes, and owning a small business can be super tough too--but then I think about beauty. And how the things that are worth it usually don't come easy. I'm so grateful for you--your support of my fabric and patterns and just for loving me. Thank you sweet friends. Thank you for making beautiful things with me. ❤️ #sothankful

Mama's Cottage ❤️💛💚💙 When Mama moved in to her cottage, she lined the walls with bookshelves, and got to work baking. She was excited to decorate for each holiday with treasures that had been in storage for far too long. She delights in having the grand babies over to play with the chickens and the rope swing in her giant walnut tree. Mama's Cottage = home. ❤️ #mamascottagefabric Is available for preorder from your @modafabrics sales rep now, ships in January. I can't wait for this one friends, it's gonna be amazing. #aprilrosenthaldesigns #showmethemoda
Do you have a morning routine? Talk to me about it! I always feel like my morning needs a little something more, and at the beginning of the fall I've always got this self-improvement/cleansing vibe. So currently, my morning looks like this: up about 30 minutes before kids/Jacob, some movement, essential oils, and real food. Then getting the kids ready for school. While J drops them off at school I get about 20 Minutes of quiet for some scripture/meditation/daily planning. The planning time helps me set priorities for the day (today? Getting the last new pattern off to the printer 😬, figuring out why my pup is struggling with breathing, and some post-weekend cleanup 🙄) and is critical for avoiding time wasting and distractions. Then Hazel gets back with Jacob and well, let's just say my planning feels like a waste of energy. 😫😂So. What's your morning routine? What am I missing? xoxo Happy Monday Lovies, let's make it a good one!
It's National Sew a Jelly Roll Day! Will you get some sewing time today? I sure hope I do!

Christmas in September? 😍 One of my favorite things about Mama's Cottage is how versatile the color palette is. It plays so nicely with past collections, and also has a spectrum to work with. I'm having so much fun over here dreaming up new projects! ❤️💚❤️💚❤️💚❤️💚❤️

Sometimes {almost never} I blog ❤️ Tutorial up today. Link in profile. #mamascottagefabric #tutorial #showmethemoda #paperpiecing #fpp
When we were fixing up my Mama's Cottage, there was one whole room wallpapered with this gold and black textured paper. We were dreading the removal of that paper! I took pictures of the pattern on the paper because, hey, fabric designer ☺️ but boy did we stall that job! When the time finally came, we thanked the heavens--the paper literally came off in full sheets! They just don't make things the way they used to!! 😂 That paper was literally entirely intact, and could for sure be reused. It was amazing! This print, called Wallpaper, of course, is one of my favorites from this collection--the pictures don't do it justice! (Also, why is red so hard to photograph??) Happy Tuesday lovies, may your chores today be as easy as removing that wallpaper ❤️❤️ xoxo

Had a fun experience today I thought I'd share. ❤️ I've been attending the @doterra Global Convention at the @saltpalacecc this week--dōTERRA partners with @daysforgirls and so there was a large display at the convention center of dozens of their hygiene kits made for distribution. As I was looking through the display, what should I see but a hygiene kit bag made from my #bestdayeverfabric 😍😄 It was such an amazing feeling to see my fabric in the wild, off to do amazing things for someone awesome on the other side of the world. Then I saw another! I had to get a picture. It was one of the highlights of my week. Thank you, sweet friends, for using and loving my fabric. It is truly my dream. Sweet weekend, lovies. ❤️ #prairiegrasspatterns #aprilrosenthaldesigns

Here's the thing about going to Mama's house. When you walk through those doors, you're family. You're loved like a sister, hugged like a best friend. If you ever have something to cry about (heaven forbid!) you have a whole tribe of people who've got your back. So by blood or by love, you're a part of Mama's family. ❤️ This print is called So Loved, for obvious reasons. ❤️ #mamascottagefabric is available for preorder from your @modafabrics rep right now, and will ship January 2018. Don't miss your chance to order today! #showmethemoda #aprilrosenthaldesigns
When my mom moved in to her little cottage, we spent a bunch of time fixing things up. Painting, replacing electrical, tearing up old carpet. In one of the walls we found newspaper clippings from the 1940s, one of which had advertisements for curtains from a local department store. My Mom was so in love with those clippings! She wanted to travel back in time and see that department store and all the things on the shelves. 😍 This print, named Curtain, is my take on the pretty little panels I imagine adorned the windows of Mamas Cottage when it was a little younger. ❤️ Mama's Cottage fabrics are available for preorder now via your @modafabrics rep, and will ship January 2018.

Good morning lovelies! What was on your Mama's Table? On the table in my Mama's Cottage was a light yellow tablecloth with delicate florals on a trellis. It was timeworn in places, a little faded--but it was cheerful and lovely and brought a sense of home to my first table when I married and moved away. It was a tragic day when that cloth finally had to be retired. This print from my #mamascottagefabric is quite similar to my memory of that cloth, it makes me happy every time I look at it. 💛 #showmethemoda #prairiegrasspatterns #aprilrosenthaldesigns
