Halloween Costumes

Is anyone surprised at the kids Halloween costumes this year?? Obviously, Flynn needs to be Link. He still wears his costume ALL the time, and runs around the house singing the Zelda theme song while whacking stuff with his sword. Juniper often grabs random dress up clothes and says she’s ‘practice Princess Zelda’ so she…

365 Days Outside > 338-343

Day 338 Today I taught the kids a new game, acorn racing! It all seemed like a great idea, but when we pulled the stick, only ONE acorn took off rolling! The kids just pushed the rest and all was well. Juniper found a tiny friend on one of the acorns. Meet “Cutie” the Inchworm.…

First of all, WOW! I am so excited about all of the positive feedback and support I’ve gotten for my little big project! I have gotten so many emails and messages from people willing to help and I am just giddy about it. AND we’ve started getting a bunch of travel brochures in the mail!…

365 Days Outside > 333-337

Day 333 I am always super grateful when my husband takes photos during the day for me. I love seeing their daytime lives, which I miss while I’m at work. Today they played outside in the neighbor’s dirt pile (which is in our yard, haha) and checked the mail. Day 334 The days are getting…

Zelda Character Zipper Pouches

I’ve been meaning to share these for a few weeks now. This was one of those last-minute projects that I was SUPER excited about, rushed to get done, and then didn’t end up being so happy with. I messed up the sizing on a couple of my pattern pieces, so they didn’t come together quite…

I’ve been wearing headbands a lot lately, and I just love this print. I’m a sucker for terrariums and this crystal shaped glass box is killing me. Cutest Jayne Cobb ever! I love everything about…

Project Juniper USA

One of the many, many, MANY things I love about Juniper is her love of learning. Or I should say, obsession with learning. It’s her favorite thing. After dinner, sometimes we’ll sit in the living room and ask her what she wants to learn about. She’ll think real hard for a minute and then say…

September via Instagram

Seriously, I feel like I say this every single month, but September was CRAZY busy! Between work, work, kids, dentist trips, and more work… things were just nuts. I’m really hoping for a more relaxing October. Never in my life have I been one to enjoy Autumn (just because it meant Winter was coming. Bleh.)…

365 Days Outside > 327-332

Day 327 After dinner we sat on the deck swing for a while and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We talked a lot about how it will be autumn soon. Juniper is REALLY excited about jumping in leaf piles, she talks about it every day! Also, Halloween is an exciting topic. Day 328 I came home…

A Painting for Tee

I am terrible. I’ve had this painting done for WEEKS and I haven’t mailed it off yet because I keep thinking I want to make some more little handmade goodies to go with it! (Tee won my giveaway a million years ago.) Next week I’m going to get into Crafty Bootcamp mode because there are…
