round about: little baby nests & rubber ferris wheels

Thumbnail image for round about: little baby nests & rubber ferris wheels

I think the problem with being a grown up in the summer is that you really just want to be a kid again. No responsibilities, no schedule, no clocks. Nothing to stop you until twilight. That’s got to be the reason why, every summer, I find myself wishing I could just stop working until September. […]

Due to some unfortunate problems with some links I once posted in this weekly round about, I’m changing things up a bit.  Things are going to shift – at least for now. Let’s try a round about of crafty DIYs that tickled my fancy throughout the week. I’m always finding new things I want to try, […]

Maybe this summer I can convince Birdie that painting all the sticks is a worthwhile project. I really really hope so. Or I may have to do them all myself. Image thanks to Molly Goldberg.

Well, it’s been a week. I’ll give you that much. I’m still rather stunned that it’s summer. I know I shouldn’t be, the calendar doesn’t lie. Maybe I’ve just been too busy to keep up with it? I think that might be it. Whatever the reason, I”m going to keep this short so I can […]

I swear I only realized yesterday evening that June is merely 3 days away. And even then, I was surpirsed it was a “week” away, then looked at the calendar and realized that wasn’t even true! I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here, May seems to be the month where […]

It’s been an amazing week at Small for Big “headquarters”. We have a new fur baby, and getting to know her is taking all kinds of interesting turns. Meanwhile, Birdie has become so obsessed with earthworms that when I picked her up from school yesterday she was keeping two of them in her sweatshirt pocket as […]

It’s almost Mother’s Day and I’m not ready! I wanted the house cleaned up, my workload cleared out of the way, and some suggestions all lined up for my little family on how we might spend the day. Typical mom approach right? Take everything over and control it as best I can? So, since none […]

If I weren’t so busy with such great things, I would take a week off. It can be a bit of a blessing and a curse when the work you love takes over your schedule. It will even out in another week or two, but for the moment, my head/computer/hands/schedule/life are overflowing! I guess it’s just […]

The only thing I have to say about this week is that last night it snowed. Yep. Our warmer weather went out the window and I spent the evening under a heated blanket, I was so chilled! Fingers crossed the forecasted warmer weather arrivees asap so I can just ignore what may or may not […]
