To say that I'm 'not an animal person' is an understatement. I like WATCHING animals, but I don't ever want to touch or smell them*. I definitely don't want them in my house. So you'll never believe what's in my... Continue reading

Low key as far as open ended, but not exactly low key when you consider there were 13 boys running around! đŸ˜„ There is a reason we turned on the lego movie for the second half of the party! kirsten

Monkey is all about being unique. He has never wanted to copy anyone else's (including his brother's) party ideas. However, my party planning mojo was lacking this year, and he wanted too many guests to really pull off the mad... Continue reading

This was the first year we managed to get snow tires on both vehicles. And there were about 2 times when I needed them. All winter! We finally managed to get them switched out last weekend. The past few days... Continue reading

My new notebooks came, and while I think I have just enough room in my last one for this weekend, I couldn't resist decorating the front of my next one: Metallic marker + magnetic poetry stamps. My mom recently found... Continue reading

I have another messy doodly commonplace book, but I kinda like having a church-centric one. Dont forget to keep some Washi tape on hand, too! kirsten

So I recently got re-interested in 'sketchnoting'. And I'm loving it! I started trying to do this with my primary lessons a few years ago. Sketchnotes just means highlighting the main ideas of a talk/speech/presentation in a graphic (and pleasing)... Continue reading

In the morning: This baby peach tree has the most awesome hot pink blossoms. The mature peach tree behind it is the typical soft pink. Afternoon: We are very grateful for these blossoms (especially since we lost mature fruit trees... Continue reading

I sent Monkey out back to see if he could find a four-leaf clover - five-minutes later he came back successful! We've found them in our yard before, but ON St. Patrick's Day? That's gotta be extra lucky, right? And... Continue reading

A year older this week (note the period instead of an exclamation mark. Partly because I woke up with a BAD BACK on my birthday. Determined to feel older I guess. Here's a random post of some goodies from my... Continue reading

My second quilt finish of the year! This would have been done weeks ago, had I not run out of quilting thread and had terrible luck finding an exact match! Anyway, it's my 'mermaid quilt'! This fabric is probably my... Continue reading

Last weekend I was invited to an 'Hours of the day' themed bridal shower. My gift was supposed to somehow tie-in the time of 2:00 pm. Man, that is a BORING time of day. As I apologized in my card:... Continue reading

Jennifer posted some of her menus recently. I think it's fun to look through someone else's menu plans. Menu making is the hardest part, isn't it? But if I don't make a menu, dinner falls into the 'scrounge' category too... Continue reading

Last week we tried a cool printmaking method. Inspired by Alisa Burke's project, we made plastic bag prints. To make it easier with two boys printing, I had three bags for each color. I would roll more paint on one... Continue reading

Oh, Julie. Just when you think you're worrying about everything you possibly can... who would have thought of that?! Hope Toby is doing well, and hugs to you - wish I could actually give you one!
