5 Things

1. Happy Teacher Appreciation Day! I love being married to a math teacher. Somehow that makes me feel smarter. So I made him this lovely surprise today, to thank him for my false sense of intelligence ? 2. A sneak peak at a project I’m working on. Yes, this is a terrible picture. But it’s…

DIY – Framed Shirt Artwork

I was doing some thrift shopping the other day and I found this adorable shirt in the children’s section. It fit me, but really isn’t my style. I just had to buy it though, because it’s so true: I DO love skinny boys with glasses! (Well, one skinny man in particular ?) I decided I…

Etsy Love

I’ve mentioned recently that someday I’d like to have a collection of family portraits done by various artists, of all sorts of mediums and styles. (I’ll definitely be hitting up some of my siblings for artwork!) I’ve found a lot of fantastic artists on Etsy, and someday when I have a little more money saved…

One Month Old

Our little Flynn turned one month old on Easter Sunday. Already! He’s a fantastic little guy. I love the tiny baby stage, so I’ve been soaking up as much sweet cuddles as I can before he’s a crazy toddler. I could just sit and stare at him all day! I love him so much ?…

Easter Outifits

I started sewing this dress for Juniper the week before Flynn was born. All I had to do was hem it, but it sat unfinished in my closet for a month. When we were invited to a friend’s house this Sunday for an Easter egg hunt, I decided to finally finish it. It’s made from…

Central Florida Earth Day

Central Florida Earth Day at Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando is kind of a family tradition. It’s one of those things I look forward to doing each year. I guess I’m just a hippie like that. The first year we went was sort of a mistake, we had gone to see the Jim Henson…

A Drawing to Keep

I’ve decided that when we have a house, instead of hanging photographs in our living room, I’m going to start a collection of family portraits done by various artists. How much fun will that be? It will be our own little art gallery ? It is so hard to photograph pencil… I’m not 100% satisfied…

Baby Shower Fun

Our good friends Iris and Steve are expecting a little baby girl, pretty much any day now. (We were preggo-buddies!) Her sister Veronica threw her an awesome baby shower last weekend, and I got to have fun helping her pull it all together. We made a spiffy diaper cake and diaper bassinet, cute little wash…

Crib Recovery

It seemed simple enough. Just adding a little bit of fabric, right? Well, as my husband will agree, this project nearly destroyed me. Almost every night I would throw this little crib up against a wall and declare that I was giving up. And every day when Shaun came home from work, there was I…
