This week we are dealing with a death in the family, and through the heartache the most interesting part is listening to and answering Birdie’s questions. Kids […]

storing keepsakes just got beautiful

Thumbnail image for storing keepsakes just got beautiful

Get rid of those plastic tubs, and the fraying fabric bins from the big box stores. I have your new storage system. Baby mementos are some of the most precious things – to parents as we keep them, and to kids when they grow up. They give us history, placement, memory, permanence. Don’t put them […]

On the plus side this week, my yoga class was amazing. So good, I walked out of there wanting to be a yoga teacher! Ha! The other plus, Birdie and I didn’t fight while practicing the piano, which feels like a major win. But beyond that this week was rather slow and frivolous. Nothing exciting […]

There is a high likelihood that the latest flu bug is about to descend upon my household. The husband came home with the cough, the throat, the chills. If the big strong guy catches it, then we’re probably all goin’ down. So, I’m going to keep this short and sweet, and go get some extra […]

I’m staring at a blank page and realizing I don’t have much to say this week. The week was a white wash of snow and more snow – much like this formerly blank page as a matter of fact. There was some design work here and there, some book reading, some napping, and of course […]

strangely adorable creatures

Thumbnail image for strangely adorable creatures

These silly creatures shouldn’t be so cute, and yet I can’t stop loving them. Lullaby for Fox creates these fantastical animals using polymer clays and soft furs, they’re definitely not to be played with. But their sweet expressions and crazy details make them worthy of any child’s biggest imagination. Maybe adding one of these to your […]
