Relaunch, Rebirth, and Actual Birth

It’s been awhile, huh? Bringing new life into the world really takes a toll on, well… life. I’m happy to report that baby Nova is doing so well, she’s such a little butterball! I’m thankful for all the words of encouragement and am excited about this next journey. With new birth, I thought it would be appropriate to relaunch the blog.  Among the design, I’ve added some new categories to the blog in hope of inspiring you and creating a better experience navigating through it all. Lots of stuff has happened around here so without much adieu, lemme break it down:


I’ve always been fascinated with how other people create, work, or otherwise be a badass. Everyone has a unique outlook on life and those experiences are worth sharing. I’ve done a few interviews in the past, and look forward to interviewing people from all walks of life.

Pattern Reviews

Sketchbook Jacket Pattern

My first love will always be sewing, whether that’s quilting, apparel, or bag making. I’m inspired by it all.

Highfive in the Sunset

There are SO MANY amazing and incredible people out there doing their thing and sometimes it just needs to be noted. These aren’t interviews, just acknowledgments like, “Hey, I see you over there, doing that thing you do. Keep doing it!” And then we slow-motion jump high five in the sunset or something like that. Maybe a wink and double pointed thumbs up? Anyway…



Who doesn’t love free shit, amirite?  As a token of my gratitude and because I love YOU, my dear reader, I’m continually creating freebies like printables, phone wallpapers, art prints, who knows! You can always stay up to date with my offerings by signing up for the IHPH newsletter. Dooo eeet…


Now that I’ve got some energy back from not being pregnant, I can focus on tutorials and sew-alongs. I’ve already expressed a possibility for the Sketchbook Jacket sew along and my Cash Stash Key Fob tutorial is still a big hit, so definitely get stoked for new how-to’s and what-not’s.

Small Business Advice

I’ve run two successful businesses, Handmade Rebellion and Spry Sprout. I have tried numerous platforms, taken so many classes, figured out what works best, and want to encourage YOU to follow your passion to creative freedom. It is hard work, but what isn’t? Don’t miss out!

That’s It!

NOT! By no means is this a definitive list of only what’s going to pop up from time to time. I hope you enjoy the relaunch and will stick around for more exciting things happening on the blog!
