Baby Quilt | By Sasha Elliott
October 11, 2017

Baby quilts are one of my favorite things to make. They’re quick & (usually) easy and always a hit at baby showers. I recently made one for my brother-in-law’s sister, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I scoured her Pinterest boards for ideas. She had a lot of buffalo check & […]

Chicago Reading List | By Sasha Elliott
October 10, 2017

When we were about a month out from our trip to Chicago, I started looking for some non-fiction books about the city. I’ve read a few already (I’ve always been fascinated by Chicago), so I’m going to include those, too. Here’s what I came up with! Sin in the Second City: Set in the late […]

Sister’s Weekend in Chicago | By Sasha Elliott
September 26, 2017

Two weekends ago my sister, Kara, and I took our first ever trip solo. Just the two of us — no Mom, no husbands, no babies. Chicago was an obvious choice because it’s a short, cheap flight (and my brother-in-law so generously bought our plane tickets), plus hello, it’s Chi-town. We decided ahead of time […]

Book Club + Book Review | By Sasha Elliott
August 23, 2017

I did a thing. I started a book club! I’ve honestly have wanted to start one for a few years now, but always found a reason not to. It wasn’t until I mentioned hosting one to one of my friends that it actually happened. She kept asking when I was going to make the Facebook […]

When I first started working at The Jadeite Shutter and Katie told me she wanted me to contribute to the blog, I immediately knew I wanted to come up with a cocktail recipe to feature. It was Katie’s idea to shoot at The Howe, so we also chose to feature a signature cocktail from the menu! […]

A Chance Encounter | By Sasha Elliott
July 29, 2017

I thought today I would talk a little bit about how Katie and I met. As some of you may have seen, she not only photographed Ezra’s 1 year milestone session, she also did a newborn shoot and our wedding as well! It sounds cheesy, but I truly think she and I were meant to […]

End-of-Summer Reading List | By Sasha Elliott
July 19, 2017

Earlier this year, I signed up for Book of the Month (which I love!!) I read the first book I received in just a couple of days, but since then they’ve been piling up. So, I thought, why not make an end-of-summer reading list? I’m hoping to have these read by September, so that I […]

Photo Organization + DIY Baby Book | By Sasha Elliott
July 13, 2017

This past Saturday, I was fortunate enough to sit in on Katie’s most recent workshop: photo organization. This is something I struggle with immensely. Especially living in the digital age, where we constantly have a camera, we can constantly be capturing images. It really got me thinking about something I’ve been working on a long […]

Where You’ll Find Me | By Sasha Elliott
June 28, 2017

When I’m not being a mama or working at The Howe, you’ll find me out in our shop. Katie came to take a tour of sorts the other weekend while Ezra was at Grandma’s and get a look at our current projects – there are a lot of them! We didn’t always have such a […]
