Happy Easter

From our house to yours, we hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Kate took some wonderful pictures of my girls in their Easter outfits. I’ve got a tutorial planned this week to share how to make the cute gathered skirts.

Birthday Bug

My little Kelsey Bug is turning one next week. I just can’t believe it! She is so much fun to be around… she giggles like crazy, plays peek-a-boo and claps her hands at everything.

Naturally, I’m in the middle of planning her party. I have big plans for it – cookies in the shape of little birds to match her quilt, decorations of little tree branches with cute stuffed birds the other kids can take home with them, lots of yummy food, and of course a cute little dress for the Bug. Well guess what. None of that’s going to happen!

Car Seat Tent – Tutorial

If there’s anything a good crafty blog has, it’s some tutorials. This is new to me. I’m not new to blogging – I’ve been keeping my family blog for quite a while now. But crafty blogs are new to me. I discovered them just last October (I know… I must have been living in a cave before then). See, I had my second daughter in September. And the day before I had her, my husband gave me an iPhone. Hours a day cuddling and nursing a newborn + an extra hand with an iPhone in it = bloggy goodness.

Valentine’s Skirt

Penny and I are in a fight. Remember that from when you were kids? How you and your best friend would be “in a fight” so you’d go find a new “best friend” until you suddenly were bff’s with your old best friend again? Well, that’s what it’s like for Penny and me right now. We’re in a fight – but don’t worry, I have a feeling that we’ll make up pretty soon. (And by that, I mean I figured out how to fix her so she’s exactly what I want her to be – which is what being a bff is all about when you’re 5. So, obviously I’m a five-year-old this week.)
