When my baby boy came into this world, we took some time to get to know him before confirming that the name we were thinking would be his was perfectly fitting. Indeed it was.
With that, it was time to get creative. Using 23 1/2″ paper mache letters, I wrapped each one in yarn – creating a pattern with oat, mint, and orange colors. It was the perfect craft during those fleeting naps of his in the early days of Milo’s existence.
Hello, party people! We’ve been getting so many requests from you wanting to know when the shop will be reopening. While I’ve not yet determined an official return date (my little bundle still has my full attention. so in love!), I’m excited to share that we are opening the shop March 11, 12, and 13 to create as many orders as we can accept in order to honor your early spring party and wedding visions, which include our goods (we are truly flattered!).
Visit the shop here.
Chubby cheeks and thighs.
Sleeping in our arms.
First trips to the grocery store, candy shop, bakery, and coffee shop.
Loves walks and long car rides. Excellent at loudly communicating his needs (wink, wink).
We love this Milo Andrew.
Thank you to all of you for your well wishes and for your patience while I take this time to focus on my baby boy.
As always, I am sending you all love and good cheer!
My son has arrived! I’m thrilled to introduce you all to Milo Andrew. With a zest for life so strong that he decided to get a five week jumpstart, we are all doing well. He is amazing. Life is amazing.
Potter+Butler has momentarily turned out the lights in our creative shop while I give my full attention and creative energy to my little boy. The lights will be flipped back on and the creative merriment will resume in early spring (or when it feels right, whichever comes first).
Until then, may you be surrounded by joys that are too deep to put into words. Cheers, all!

We selected our tree for this holiday season! Obviously, we had to choose the one waaaay in the back of the farm so that Adam could have the joy of carrying it waaaaay to the car. Heading out into the Oregon countryside and selecting first a tree farm and then a Christmas tree has become one of my favorite traditions since moving to this lush state, which is abundant with perfect evergreens this time of year, three years ago.
With a baby on board and due in January, each tradition we have is taking on a new feeling this year – with a big ol’ nod of gratitude to Christmas traditions as we’ve known them for 32 years mixed with much anticipation for the refreshed sense of merriment each Christmas will take on as a parent from here on out.
As they say, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
May the joy of your traditions be felt more deeply than ever before, friends. We are grateful for you!
