the other evening my little man came running into my office, and he said-momma! hurry, come and
look! its beautiful, the sun is everywhere!I ran after him and he was right. the sun was setting and it was everywhere.
he told me it even reached the roof tops.
he says the most profound things.
more exciting than the time I graduated college.
or rode in a hot air balloon.
or went to the mumford and sons concert in my hometown.
or the time I rode every roller coaster at six flags and blacked out on the last one.
or when I visited the Goonies house.
or when I saw a baby black bear climbing our fence in Alaska, soon followed by the momma.
more exciting than the time-
well, you get the picture.
so, this morning I woke up to this! I am honored to be included and chosen!
follow my instagram-search ozetta.
& of course follow Minnetonka, because well, they are cool!;)

also, I feel preeeettttyyyyyy silly.
I took my camera in, prepared to buy a whole new one. I took the lens cap off and showed the lady at the camera shop the shattered lens. Well, it turns out (I completely forgot that I had bought a filter for the lens)...and only the filter lens was broken. The camera/lens was completely fine!
I still would like to have a new camera in the future, but this one still works perfectly. And the photo above shows just how well it still works :)
its almost the weekend! and Sunday is my 28th birthday....what???!!!
(no edit on the photo above).
remember last year when my camera lens was dropped, and the bulb broke inside?
A couple of days after we got back from our vacation to Colorado, and over 1500 pictures later...I opened up my camera bag and found that my lens had shattered.
in the bag. with the lens cap on.
so much bad luck with my camera the past year.
I have had trouble with it, and there is dust showing up on all of my images that have to be edited out. so maybe its just time to get a whole new camera. I have had the same camera for 5....6 years? never had any problems and then the past year my lens has broken twice.
so, now I am trying to decide what to do. get a whole new camera or new lens and have the camera cleaned....
will let you know what I decide :)
we were driving along 'the million dollar highway' when we spotted an area full of aspens that had changed. it was literally a slice of heaven, so gorgeous and when the wind blew-the yellow leaves went with it. it felt like another world.
God truly makes beautiful things, and I am so thankful to have seen something so extraordinary.
I photographed some new photos of the Chinook cowl in oatmeal, a new piece from the cozy season collection. I practically lived in the cowl above, since I made it for myself. and will probably be seen in it most of the time this fall/winter.
*fun fact, I named the Chinook cowl after the 'Chinook winds' in Alaska. and a strong Chinook can make snow one foot deep almost vanish in one day.
find the grey marble one here.
and the new oatmeal one here.
the Oregon warmer shown in pumpkin, is new in the shop. find it here.
if you follow me on instagram, you will have noticed my long break from blogging was due to a vacation to Colorado. We had such a wonderful time. It felt nice to knit in the mountains. A dream come true really.
And then it snowed like this. I whipped up the Oregon in pumpkin and we drove then hiked to this spot. It was breathtaking.
Some days it felt like fall, others it felt like winter. I miss it so much.
at least I have fall to enjoy now.
my favorite season of all.
fall is right around the corner, and just in time for the cozy season collection.all handmade knits will be available today, Monday September 16.
visit my lookbook for the full collection sneak peek.
and my ozetta shop, ozetta.etsy.com, where you will find all of the listings added throughout the morning.
please be aware of limited edition pieces where there are small quantities of each.
make a cup of coffee and stay awhile.
