House Drawings

I am working on a couple of drawings right now. I showed a peak of the first one in this post, and the other one is a 5×7 house sketch. I’ve drawn quite a few houses at this point, which is kind of funny to me because it’s not something I ever thought I would…

April Wrap Up

April was a month of taking a step back and refocusing. We’ve started clearing out a lot of the clutter in our home, renewed our motivation, relaxed some and learned to take things one day at a time. I’d say it was a pretty good month. I haven’t had much luck with my cameras though. First my big…

Bucket Hats Tutorial

Well here it is! I finally put together a tutorial for the bucket hats I have been working on for Laura. These reversible hats are given to cancer patients, and they area really easy to sew up. Once you’ve made one you might as well make a dozen. If you want to make some and…

Bucket Hats

I’ve been working on more bucket hats for Laura. She gave me enough fabric to make 20 hats, and I might make a few more with more boy-ish prints. So far I’ve got twelve of them ALMOST done, and I’d like to finish them up and give them to Laura this Sunday. Lindsay came over…

365 Days Outside

365 Days Outside > 96-100

Day 96 We didn’t get out much today. I still had a pretty bad headache from smacking my head on the cabinet door the night before. But I think it’s cute when Juniper sneaks out onto the deck and sits quietly by herself on the swing. She likes to practice her writing out there in…

Drawings

Great post title, right? It’s late. I’m tired. So I don’t think tonight could have gone much better. The house is clean(ish), I’ve got my lunch made for tomorrow, the kids went to bed 30 minutes early and I’m curled up in bed with a pencil and some paper working on a new drawing. This…

Meal Planning!

I took a little crafty break last night and started decorating my refrigerator! I’ve shared pics of my magnetic scrapbook before. I’m looking forward to adding to it as we live life. I know I have a lot more cute magnets around here somewhere, I just have to dig them up. ANYWAY. A couple of…

Happy Earth Day

We had some fun plans for Earth Day, but the weather wasn’t so great and I still had a pretty bad headache from hitting my head so hard on Friday night. So we just stayed home and enjoyed a long family nap time. The nap was nice, but I hate the feeling of sitting around…

Lessons Learned From Green Paint

This is how my weekend began… Do you know how hard it is to clean an entire gallon of green paint off a kitchen floor while there are two kids freaking out in the next room? Hopefully you don’t. And if you do, I can truly say I’m sorry. It’s no fun. Now, add on…

365 Days Outside

365 Days Outside > 90-94

Day 90 We had quite a rainy morning today. It rained so much that our little river came back, and stronger than ever! Juniper and I had so much fun sending the boats downstream over and over. There was quite a fast current, so she had to run to keep up. At the other end…
