Yippee Skippee! Tegu has expanded their selection of magnetic blocks! Now they have added smaller sets of blocks in a natural finish, with some awesome futuristic graphics in blue. Each set includes just enough pieces for an open ended session of  “What can I make next?”. I like to think of them like a Tangram […]

Last week I shared a new app called Dripthat with you –  I love to use it for creating a drip that really describes the mood over several images, and I can share it privately with family, or publicly with everyone. But this time, I wanted to show you how easy it is to turn this […]

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 know, we have too many social media tools already. At least, if one tries to do them all. I’m a big believer in picking the social media channels that fit you best – especially as a blogger where social media can make or break you. My favorites are the most visual ones: Pinterest and […]

One of a kind kids pillows have become The Thing lately, have you noticed? There are lots of options out there, but I’m loving these sweethearts from Ava & Yves.

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 […]

Thumbnail image for the cutest bowls you didn’t know you needed

I’m fighting the urge to place an order for a complete set of these bowls. I want my every cereal, fruit snack, and lunchtime soup to be greeted with these sweet faces. These bowls from Marinski are not only sweet, but handmade to order. That means that the bowl you receive is unique to you and […]

Ah, little French dolls. With cozy hats, hand-knit sweaters, pouty little lips, and strappy ballerina shoes. That’s what you get with a Mademoiselle Dimanche Doll Kit. (and yes, Dimanche means Sunday, hence my post title!). If you want a new craft project to start out with this summer, I highly suggest one of these. Each doll kit […]

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 […]
