I love the bookstore. My husband starts rolling his eyes every time I start huffing the book bindings, which I do, liberally. They smell so damn good. And now, I can finally see Birdie loving bookstores too – for more than the chance to beg for a new toy or another coloring book. Today, my friends, […]
Another week has past. I don’t feel like i have much to show for it – and I think that’s just the beginning of how Fall and Winter always feel for me. Between the added school and extra-curriculars schedule, and the weather, things fly by without my knowledge. Somehow in the summer I don’t stress […]
It’s that time again – time for the Cricut Design Space™ Star Competition! My team is creating projects for a Roaring 20’s birthday party. And for this project, even if you don’t own a Cricut, you can download and print out your very own crown too. I want to make all of my readers happy! I became so […]
In my dream home with the endless budget, there is an old-fashioned attic painted entirely in white with fancy dormers, lots of play space, and a couple of these leather swings by Fritz Hansen & Louis Vuitton.
Burp clothes in white? Eh, so boring. I just saw these gorgeous rainbow muslins and had to share – I love seeing lots of color in a baby’s world, and these burp clothes from Faye & Lou are the perfect answer to a case of the blahs. I also love the British way of saying […]
National Geagraphic Kids and Small for Big are starting a great new partnership! I’ll be creating printable animal toys for you to download, print, and assemble your own animals and environments: with a different land and its animals featured each month. Today is the second land in our series. Created in partnership with National Geographic, Animal Jam is […]
I’m currently sitting in the middle of Northern Wisconsin getting cozy with Fall, the forest, a big bike race called the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, and vegging out with my little family. It’s our annual Fall “vacation”, and we have all these silly little routines that I love to death. From where we eat, to […]
I really want to meet this man, his 3D printer, and his 3D printed castle. What do you think it would cost to “print” one of these in our backyard? Read more about it in my local paper, the Star Tribune, or the more detailed 3Ders.
It’s taking all my willpower to not run over to Birdie’s school and bring her home to make one of these right this second. LIke. Right. Now. Leave it to Bar to come up with the perfect way to take the quickly rising weaving trend, make it approachable for kids, and beautiful too. You’ll have […]
I’m excited about today’s feature, because I think it’s a sign of things to come. As bloggers we’re always looking for the next wave, and when it comes to shopping through blogs, I think I may have found it. Today I want to introduce you to Bringhub, and a couple of perfect fashion picks from […]
Coffee tables can be anything from boring, too big, too small, painful corners, great storage, running all the way to unusual. But for families, coffee tables become even more: game time, train table, Lego central, movie night meals, etc. etc. But I’d never considered using one as a dollhouse before. Designed by Ulyanov Architects, this beauty of […]
Well, folks, Birdie made it through the first week of school. In one piece, without any major tantrums, or forgotten lunches. And it sounds like she only ran around trying to kiss the boys twice. I guess that’s an acceptable amount in her eyes, but I’m not sure the boys would agree. I feel like I […]
So your sofa is covered in striped, patterned, nubby, or velvet throw pillows. They’re pretty, semi-functional, and totally expected. I dare you to replace them with one of these characters. Though, if I tried to tell Birdie that the stuffed toy from Poosac sitting on the sofa wasn’t hers, but instead belonged to the sofa, […]
It happened. Fall has arrived. School is starting, And I swear, no joke, there are some trees in my area that are already turning colors (it makes me hurt, I can’t take it!). You know what comes along with fall and all the other back to school madness? The holidays. They’re around the corner. I […]
