Colorful Cookies

I’ve been a little preoccupied lately putting together a little birthday celebration for my Juniper. (I still can’t believe she is going to be 3 tomorrow, and I’m sure I will express similar feelings every year until I die.) Today we baked some super colorful cookies. (I got the idea from this post on Tablespoon.)…

Princess Crown

We stumbled across this cute dress up crown tutorial tonight, and Juniper just had to have one. She even helped me pick out the fabric and sat on my lap while I sewed it together. Needless to say, she is sleeping with her new crown on, and I don’t think she’ll take it off any…

Snow and Clamshells

We woke up to a pretty surprise today, our first snow! So fun! And yes, those are socks… I don’t own any gloves yet ha! We celebrated our first snow day by building our very first fire in our fireplace. Perfect for warming up after the inevitable snow ball fight. After lunch, I got some…

DIY Candy Cane Garland

When I saw this Candy Cane Bunting tutorial on Smashed Peas and Carrots, I was inspired to put together my own version with real candy canes. I just love how putting two candy canes together makes a heart. (Back to my heart-shaped obsession.) So here’s what you’ll need: candy canes, cotton thread, decorative ribbon or…

I Dress Myself.

Juniper is forever coming out of her room with some of the best outfits picked out. She makes me laugh with her silly clothes. But sometimes I need to stop, look down, and remember where she gets her fashion sense.

Mini Cake Challenge – November

I’ve been wanting to try this technique forever. I’m glad I finally decided to go for it, because it sure makes for a super cute little cake! Now, usually I am a strong believer that every single thing on a cake should be edible, but I just couldn’t resist adding a little cake bunting. (Darn…

Birthday List Revisited (Again!)

I thought I’d take a look back at my “26 before 27″ list from my birthday last January. I can’t believe I’ll be having another birthday so soon! I’ve done quite a few things on the list, not all, but a nice chunk. There are still a few things I definitely want to try and…

{CraftHope} Sock Monkeys

My craft room has been slowly taken over by a band of poetry reading, bank robbing, ballerina sock monkeys. They have finally been boxed up and shipped to Texas where they will be finding new homes with little kids who were affected by the wild fires. I am thoroughly in love with CraftHope. I love…

Christmas Tree

I am super excited about this Christmas season. Our first Christmas in our new house! Time to start some fun family traditions. I really like the Christmas Book Advent Dana posted on her blog MADE. Maybe by next Christmas I can find enough books at the thrift store to do that with our kids. I…

Eight Months

Eight months just seems like such a long time, except for when I think about how old this little man is. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long at all. When I look at him I can’t help but think, who is this enormous baby baby crawling around my house?! (He’s wearing a size…
