keeping warm with twiggy and opal baby quilts

Thumbnail image for keeping warm with twiggy and opal baby quilts

The cold weather shows no sign of letting up. It’s the end of February, and yet the forecast still shows below average cold weather into the first week of March. I’m really sick of being cold. Keeping warm is essential, isn’t it? When Birdie was small, I swear I had blankets of every size and […]

toys made of unicorns & mountaintops

It’s always extra special to find an individual maker who is able to turn anything they make – across a variety of categories – into something original and unique to them. It’s hard to stay true to your own vision, but I think Lord and Little does it so well. That rustic, so-cal vibe isn’t new […]

Yep, I’m still dealing with the Oscars buzz. I don’t know why I love it so much, because every year I end up feeling a little disappointed by the end of it all (where are the innovative, new, exciting dresses? Is it just me or does it all start to look the same?), but there’s […]

It was the week that was. Not much happened really. The frigid temperatures remained below freezing 24/7. In fact, they remained almost entirely in the single digits. The same dang project I was hoping to finish on Monday is still unfinished as of this post. Several emails still await my reply. I’m really not sure […]

First of all, you have to watch this video for your daily dose of laughter-inducing cute animals. I want to reach out and hug each and every one of them. Did you see the baby rhino and baby elephants? I think I swooned. Since we can’t own our own baby rhinos, or most of those […]

springtime for toys

Spring will get here eventually right? It has to be on it’s way, at some point. Even though so much of the country is blanketed in snow and cold and windy gray days right now, when I see sweet things like these toys from Willowynn, I have a little hope! Willowynn’s toys are handmade using […]

There are toy companies, and then are there are Toy Companies. Kid O is in the latter category – full of whimsy, modern details, and the all important play value for each and every toy.

It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I’m really looking forward to having the holiday on a Saturday this year, so we can fully enjoy a family day together. Life is moving too fast lately – even on the weekends – so taking some time to hang out as a fam is exactly what we need! I’m thinking […]

Birdie spent yesterday sick with a stomach bug. By early afternoon, she was also sick of the sofa, the side chair, all of her pillows and the floor. She just couldn’t get comfortable. I couldn’t help but wish we had a beanbag to comfort and mold around her little body! Especially if it was one […]

I’m cutting myself some slack today. Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for the best design blog conference ever, Alt Summit. Lots of friends, sponsors, information, inspiration, and I’ll be speaking about one of my favorite things: Pinterest. Maybe I’ll see you there! And when I return, we’ll be in the middle of Valentine’s preparations. At least, […]

tees, sox, & being an imperfect toy

Thumbnail image for tees, sox, & being an imperfect toy

I am trying more and more to find ways to be just a little rough around the edges in the work that I do. Not in that “I don’t care” kind of way, but more in a life is messy, things are imperfect, and imperfections are beautiful kind of way. It feels more real, less […]

I’m so brain dead right now that this is going to be one of those posts where what I type here may not be all that interesting. Yesterday was one of those days, and today will be mostly about recovery, and what’s the word … oh yes, “self-care”. I’m going to be all about that […]
