There’s a new Design Star challenge in town, and I intend to … well, to be a part of it! I’m not sure I’ll win, but I’m having a blast playing around as part of the Cricut Design Space™ Star Competition. Contestants have been grouped into teams, and we design new concepts every month to […]

I have a serous case of baby fever right now. No, I am not pregnant, but having a 5 year old makes you realize how far we are from baby-dom.  I do want to share with you a beautiful line of hand-knit lovelies that are perfect for your own babies. Lille Lova Knits has a name […]

which animal are you?

Thumbnail image for which animal are you?

Pretend play makes me so very happy. Well, I’m happier when I’m watching it happen – it’s kind of hard to really get into pretend play as an adult. Sad but true, right? Maybe we just haven’t found the right accessory. These printed canvas masks from the Lucky Fish Shop look like just the thing […]

april showers bring may umbrellas

Thumbnail image for april showers bring may umbrellas

Birdie’s favorite umbrella is broken. Not just a little bit broken, but a whole heckuvalot broken. Of course, she still demands to use it. Even though she’s walking around with a half-cocked umbrella, the other half smushed flat against her head. She’s a determined little girl. But it makes me sad to see her trying […]

the littles for your little’s hair

Thumbnail image for the littles for your little’s hair

We’re always on the hunt for hair barrettes that stay put, but don’t look like cruddy crud crud (as Birdie would say). With her long hair and her kindergarten hours it needs to stay put until I pick her up from school, which is a tall order. It’d be nice if it could look fabulous […]

baby shoes so good you’ll want a baby

Thumbnail image for baby shoes so good you’ll want a baby

Dear me, it’s happening again. I’ve found something so sweet and perfect that I need to find a baby to give it to. Even if that involved stopping a random new mom in the grocery store and shoving the shoes on her little baby’s feet! Ok, I think instead of scaring a perfectly harmless stranger, […]

Are you in the throes of Spring cleaning? Perhaps you’ve just realized, as we have, that the kids have absolutely nothing to wear in this warmer Spring weather, and way too many winter clothes left. I think I’ve found the perfect app to get us through the shift in seasons (and every other week thereafter): […]

Temp tats. Oh yeah, I’m into them. Hardcore. I like my ink impermanent, to match my whims and the random nature of my 5 year old. I collect them like candy. Our favorites have always been Tattly – they last longer than the Hello Kitty crud from the dollar aisle, and the designs are just […]

h&m does halloween

I really should have been reading those weekly emails from H&M. I just fall so behind that I start deleting every email I can in an effort to catch up. But then I nearly miss beautiful things like H&M’s All For Children 2013 Collection. The costumes feel both timeless yet very 18th century: like a […]

Thumbnail image for finally: buy h&m kids clothes online!

My iPhone loves to switch my typed “hmm’s” to “H&M”. I don’t know why. I do know it makes me want to go shopping more often than I should! Especially now that H&M finally offers online shopping in the US! Rejoice! I happen to live in a city with brick and mortar H&M stores, but […]

Yeah yeah yeah, the first day of school is all about shiny new backpacks and crisp new clothes. I get that. But why not add a little something extra special? Something you can almost guarantee no one else will have? Enter these truly unique Schoolyard Badge Necklaces available at Romp. I can’t get over the […]

go go go to ko ko ko!

Thumbnail image for go go go to ko ko ko!

Sometimes Etsy shops feel like a carefully curated boutique full of several different makers, and that’s my favorite kind of shop. Ko Ko Ko Shop includes sweet wildlife watercolors, funky kids clothing and accessories, and dishes and mugs too. It’s an entire smorgasbord of amazingness.   I’m drooling for the neckerchief, the pocket bunnies, knee […]

DIY: flower crown

Thumbnail image for DIY: flower crown

Have you noticed flower accesories are taking over Pinterest and Etsy lately? Big, luscious, over-the-top cornucopias of florals. My favorite finds are the gorgeous headpieces. Every time I see one, I want one. But clearly in my day-to-day life it’s a rather useless accessory. I wonder what the moms at preschool pickup would say if […]

Can I please spend the entire day as happy and fashionable as the little girl in this photo? Holy Hannah she’s just too much! Apparently it’s all because of Zuzii’s adorable sandals. Which, ok, I can believe it. Zuzii started out making jersey knit sandals and booties, and has graduated to these beautiful leather creations. […]
