I couldn't have been the only one desperately sewing into the evening on Sunday night to finish up her advent calendar! I ended up only finishing the first half of the calendar, and will finish the rest this week. After all, Victoria couldn't care less as long as those little... Continue reading

This year I promised myself that I would make gifts for Victoria's Christmas, or purchase them from other crafters on Etsy or at craft sales. I know that as a homeschooling mom, any sales from my Etsy site make us so happy... so I thought that not only did I... Continue reading

Love it Jamie, how awesome for future baby to be able to read about all of those changes! I agree so much about it. I have a few letters that my mom wrote but I always hunger for more :)
