My husband thinks I've gone over the edge when it comes to selling things. I sold this rug to a friend and she's picking it up today, and no I don't have a new rug picked out yet. And yes I'm selling things to earn a new one! You guys I'm having too much fun with this. I actually did have one picked out but I've changed my mind because I'm looking for a wool rug to continue to pursue creating a healthier home. I've never really thought about that with rugs and all the off gasing from furniture until my husband has shown to be super sensitive to that stuff! If anyone has suggestions for a beautiful 9 x 12' affordable wool/cotton rug, please share!
Also, one thing that has helped my sanity when it comes to toys lingering in the living room is gathering them in a basket (I keep ours under the coffee table) and then a couple times a week I have the kids put them back where they belong in the playroom. Makes each day a little simpler because I'm not constantly picking up toys!
Happy Friday, hope y'all get a great 3 day weekend!❤️ .

You know that scene in The Christmas Story where Ralphie gets his tongue stuck to the pole? Maren did that in real life tonight. She was looking out the window of our storm door at Reed and somehow got it stuck and pulled it off before we knew. It was traumatic for everyone, but she'll be ok.
We went to Barnes and Noble to read fun books and cuddle with her, to try and help her feel better. Then we did what any true Minnesotans would do in a -21°wind chill — we got ice cream at Culver's, sat next to the fireplace, and facetimed grandma and grandpa. It didn't completely heal her mouth, but she sure seemed to feel better.
If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day,It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed!!

Reposts from my new illustration/art IG account @paulinestanley.design. These are 2 new art prints based off of some of the elements I designed for our jewelry pieces. .
My illustration work has a slightly different focus from what we do here, including design services and licensing, so I was feeling like it was time to separate the two. Feel free to follow my illustration work there if you’d like! @paulinestanley.design
My plan right now is to have some prints, such as these, available on the Rare Bird website as well as my design website, so you can find them on the there, link in bio!
Two new prints available to purchase via my new website, link in bio! The shapes are based off of some of the elements I designed for our jewelry pieces from my jewelry & home goods business - @rarebirddesigns. I love them paired together as a set. 🖤

I’ve been enjoying a very full calendar of design consultations the last few weeks. It’s my favorite hat to wear of all my (work) hats. 🤗 I will be taking some time off consultations in mid-late February for some family time bc even though I had this baby girl like two minutes ago she will be turning ONE. 😩 Oh and I will be dedicating time toward an entire house design for a client that I’m super stoked about, too. Anyway, a few slots are left between now and mid Feb before I take a hiatus for several weeks. Info, testimonials and contact form are on my website. Also since I like to reward only the most dedicated with snippets of info at the bottom of a long post...that thing I alluded to in yesterday’s post that may happen has something to do with the #bigbrickbungalow . 😱
