We had a fun (and dry!) Halloween this year. And aparently everyone else in the town came out to enjoy the beautiflul weather as well - WOW! The folks downtown are very gratious (and brave) to come out and share treats with SO many costumed kiddos. I think the sheer... Continue reading

Great idea! I think you could probably adapt these for just about any occasion.

Thanks for saying Hi, I truly appreciate your comments. I just checked out your applesauce jack-o-lanterns and flashlight mummies - SO darling! I am totally going to use them (I hope you don't mind). And I also love the witches broom treat bags - great idea!

Today I am sharing a fun, easy, inexpensive, AND sugar-free party favor that the kiddos can help make. I know I have gone on, and on before about how grateful I am that my son's preschool encourages parents to hand out sugar free items as party favors, but really, I... Continue reading

It is funny how life works sometimes. Just when you think your world is spinning out of control, something reels you back in - reminding you how important the little things are.

Every Halloween my son's preschool does "trunk-or-treat," where the kids go around to the parents' cars and get their goodies. The teachers ask that we give out non-candy items (which I think is great). So this year I decided to have a little fun with it and make my own.... Continue reading

"Any day spent sewing, is a good day." Between building with blocks, riding bikes, and a visit to the library, I managed to find a few spare moments to sew patches. The rhythm of the needle in my hand provided calm (and sanity) I desperately needed. I am amazed at... Continue reading
