Cupcakes

Every time I make cupcakes, my brother’s girlfriend tells me she wants one. The only thing is, she lives 1000 miles away! So I decided to make a special batch just for her and I include them in the Christmas package I sent home. (Last week… yes I am a huge slacker! At least it’s…

Ten Months

The difference between nine months and ten months is pretty incredible. This little mister has FOUR teeth now, can stand up on his own and loves chasing his sister around the house with his walker toy. It’s been a busy month! My favorite thing right now is how excited he is to see me when…

{Drawings} Sosa

When I do drawing commissions, my favorite parts to work on are the eyes and the hair. And dogs are fun to draw because they are mostly hair! This 5×7 drawing will be heading to Washington DC. I decided recently that I need to draw more often. So I bought myself a nice big sketch…

365 Days Outside > 14-19

Day 14 Today we made a surprise for Daddy in our back yard. When he looks outside in the morning he will know how much we love him. Day 15 Our snowman is officially the only snow left in our yard. Well, accept the tiny spots of snow here and there that Juniper insisted we…

Doll Heads

I met an elderly woman at church recently named Laura. She is AMAZING. She is the regional coordinator for the church’s humanitarian efforts, and her house is FULL of crafts. Last week I helped her sew some bucket hats for cancer patients, and this week she asked me to help out with these little “burrito…

{DIY} Bird Feeder

We made this super cute bird feeder last night. I thought I’d share it as a mini-DIY. Like there aren’t enough bird feeder tutorials out there! Oh well, I think its cute. I was sick last week, and so I’ve spend the past 2 days cleaning my house back up. Fun, I know. Tonight I…

{Recipe} Corn and Potato Chowder

“Mmmm! Mom, this is good soup!” “It’s not soup, it’s chowder.” “Eww, I hate chowder…” Hahaha! Sorry, I can’t think of chowder without laughing at my silly brother. And yes, I know he has LOTS of ammo on me when it comes to “stupid things we’ve said” battles. (I hold my ground, that car did…

365 Days Outside > 7-13

Day 7 Walks are a big hit around here. Juniper loves to push Flynn in the stroller, and he loves driving around! We went all around today and collected lots of sticks and rocks to paint. Day 8 We were visiting Oma so we took Trevor for a walk after lunch. Juniper even got some…

{DIY} Twiggy Heart Part 1

I’ve got a little crafty DIY for you today! I love crafting with things found in nature, because going outside and collecting it is half the fun! (AND it’s free, so that’s a bonus too.) So get out there, collect some sticks, and let’s get started. 1. You will need: A large piece of paper,…

Some Projects and a Sneak Peak

Once again I find myself well into the new year with a small pile of Christmas gifts that still need to be mailed. (At least it isn’t June yet!) That apron took me SO long! If I ever make another apron, it will definitely be a simpler pattern. I’m hoping to finally have everything wrapped…
