Surprise #3 – Rice Warmer

The third mini giveaway surprise was the hardest to decide on, since I don’t actually know Desiree! From our email exchange she seemed a lot like me, so I decided to make something I knew I would like (seems logical to me), and that I’ve been wanting to make for a while now. Alida posted…

Surprise #2 – Bookworm

Way back in January I bought the book “Wee Wonderfuls” by Hillary Lang, along with some other craft books, and my very first project was Evelyn Inchworm. Seriously, like five minutes after finishing her I thought “How cute would it be to make a Lia bookworm!” So when Lia’s name came up in the giveaway…

Grandma’s Couch – Dress Restyle

(Like my poses? Juniper was my coach, haha!) A couple of weeks ago I went to Goodwill looking for something I need for a super secret project. That never works by the way, going to Goodwill with something specific in mind. Never ever works. But what I DID find was this fantastic dress! I fell…

Belated Fathers Day

I just want to take a quick minute and mention how much I LOVE that my children have such an awesome Daddy. One who loves them, and will play with them, and take care of them. I didn’t have that growing up. In fact, my father-in-law is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a…

Three Minis

Ok, I know, there are only two paintings in this picture. But there are three! After I mailed off the first one, the same girl purchased two more. Fun! I really love these mini paintings. They’re small and quick to paint. And they’re dang cute too, I think so anyway.   This was the first…

Not a Baby Anymore

So I realize it’s been a WHILE since this handsome little guy has been a baby. I mean, he’s two years old plus a few months. He’s obviously not a baby. He’s passed all the “not a baby anymore” milestones – walking, eating regular food, big boy haircut, being weaned from the good stuff etc.…
