First of all, I have to show the handmade favors that I worked so hard on. Well, they weren’t difficult, just time consuming.
Bubbles, banana shaped sugar cookie, bean bag
Ok, so I didn’t make the bubble solution, but it is made in the USA – not China. The sugar cookie [...]
So after Sprout’s birthday, there were a couple of days that were overcast. He wasn’t able to realize what a magical gift he had received in his little crystal. Finally, on the 20th, we woke up to a bright sun peeking through the windows. Sprout’s room faces the east, so I couldn’t wait to go [...]

This is the scene in my home lately. Ollie loves to be worn and I love to craft. Here we are in harmony while he sleeps.
I feel like I have so much to do and so little time to do it. Sprout’s birthday is next Tuesday and we’re hosting playgroup to celebrate. [...]
