Potion Vases

A few weeks ago, Flynn picked a bunch of dandelions for his teachers. When we got to class, one of his teachers said something about wishing she had a little vase to put them in. So we made them some little vases! The second Flynn saw these potion shaped bottles at the store, it was…

The Cat!

When Juniper was a year old, we went to CT for Christmas and to visit my newborn niece Piper. My sister gave Juniper this stuffed cat for Christmas and Juniper spent years carrying that thing around. It was pretty adorable. (I’ll admit though, I thought everything about this kid was pretty adorable.) One day, a…

Small Things Illustration – Doll Contest

Alyssa from Small Things Illustration is hosting THE CUTEST CONTEST EVER right now. Basically, you create a doll based on her designs and the winner will get their artwork turned into a custom doll. I absolutely adore Alyssa’s dolls (and everything else she does!) so we definitely had to enter. Plus, I knew the kids…

The Comedians

I started writing this post MONTHS ago. Hence the warm weather pictures… (I adore these photographs, by the way!) I need to start being more consistent with writing down the funny things these kids say. Because they crack me up on a daily basis and I want to remember as many tiny details as I…

A Skeleton Dress

Last weekend I finally got up the courage to open my craft room door and start cleaning up the disaster waiting for me. It’s been bad before, but it was BAD. I don’t think a single thing in there was where it was supposed to be. Anyway, I suckered Shaun into helping me straighten up…

A Fail to Remember

A couple of weeks ago Juniper was flipping through a kid’s craft book and wanted to try the ‘bubble painting’ project. We gave it a go, and as you can see, it didn’t exactly turn out. In fact, the only reason I’m sharing these photos is because Flynn’s unimpressed face is killing me. And I…

The Comedians

First of all… I love these two!!!! Goodness they’re cute. It’s been MONTHS since I’ve done a Comedians post. It’s long overdue. I think it’s funny that this time around Flynn has more quotes than Juniper. I think I just remember more of his quotes because it didn’t talk at all for SO LONG that it…

“Link and Zelda and Tardis Party”

I figured since I’m all blogging again and whatnot, I should probably share some pictures from Flynn’s birthday party! Because it was awesome. Just like last year’s party, only with Dr. Who! Shaun and I had a lot of fun planning this party. I mean, a “Link and Zelda and Tardis” party? How could we…

Morning Cake

Me this morning: “Oh look, I’m totally going to be on time for work! It’s time for me to leave now. I think I’ll decorate a cake with Juniper.” Yup. I was late for work because I decided to decorate a cake. (Totally worth it.) Oma’s birthday was yesterday, and we are going to visit…

Painting Hearts

Juniper has a very detail oriented personality. Everything has to go EXACTLY how she pictures it in her head. If we are doing a project from a book, it needs to look just like the photo. You have to answer her questions exactly how she thinks you should. (That one is tricky. I’m not a…
