Well, it’s happened. Nesting has begun. I went from having to-do lists in the back of my mind to having them on paper (in multiple places around the house, ha!) and filling the Amazon cart repeatedly. Here’s some of the things I’ve been up to. It reads kind of like a to-do list, and for… Continue reading Nesting gone crazy!
Do you remember the Cookie Monster hat I made for Noah’s Halloween costume? It is the first hat that he has ever worn voluntarily and for more than 2 minutes at a time.

I’m part of a book club that is reading Sally Clarkson’s The Lifegiving Home. One of her ideas… Continue reading DIY kids’ tepee
