Mymsie, Well, thank you. There is definitely a sacrifice to working on projects during nap time instead of cleaning my house but it's been important to me to work regardless. The messes are getting cuter, though!

They may snag if you don't cut the sharp ends down far enough. Maybe something else would work better for knits.
I just flattened it out carefully as I went and then laid something heavy on the opposite side on the one that didn't want to lay flat. Good question!

We've had a few days of snow with freezing temps that have kept it around. It's beautiful on a sunny afternoon but today has been grey and frigid with more of the same in the forecast. While it's no Boston snowpack and we're not technically snowed in, it's made me... Continue reading

Find the Artist: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight I recently spent some time browsing through Minted's art selection and was so impressed with the artists and prints they offer.

I've been missing my sweetheart this week as he's been out of town again for a business conference but absence has made this heart grow fonder and fonder. I had the clay out for the kids to make Valentine's for their classmates when I realized we had a lot left... Continue reading

Susan, My grandmother bought that for Sebastian years ago but it's probably easy to find them on Amazon. I'm not exactly sure where she got it.

Thanks! The basket is from Target about two years ago.

It's about a fresh perspective and a new intention. My goals this year aren't as specific as lose twenty... Continue reading
