We will remember Christmas 2010 as the year Grandma came to visit, Princess beautifully read aloud the Christmas Story from the Bible, and Pumpkin got a Nintendo DSi (even when she told Santa all she wanted was a Nintendo DS). It was also the year I sent one of Brother’s Stomp Rockets up into the […]
With the recent addition to the family, we decided not to make our traditional holiday trip to visit family in Utah. Instead, Todd’s mom came down to visit us. So we went ice skating. Princess was cautious barely falling once while Pumpkin skated with tenacity even while landing on her behind every few minutes. Brother […]
Following my obvious affinity for crochet projects this holiday season, I made a few sets of crocheted earrings for my girlfriends. Pattern from Crochet Adorned (a crochet book totally worth investing in). Findings from Le Cotillon.
May your holiday be full of less bad singing and more big smiles!

Once again, my local Savers thrift store did not let me down, supplying me with the perfect doily for less than $2. Now I just […]
Ever since I discovered Savers awesome DIY tutorials back in October (the Barbie Zombie Garden was such a cool idea), I couldn’t wait to see what they’d come up with for the Holidays. I immediately fell in love with their upcycled snowflake ornament idea and headed to my local Savers to find the needed supplies. […]
While Grandma was in town a few weeks ago, we experimented with a few fabric flower tutorials we found online. Grandma was thinking about gifts for the granddaughters and I was thinking about gifts for the little girls in the neighborhood. With a bag full of scrap fabric and a box full of beads gifted […]
This past month I crocheted and felted four bucket hats and not one of them turned out to be the right size for the little girl I was hoping to gift it to. On the bright side, I feel like a crocheted bucket hat & felting pro (except for the whole sizing aspect obviously). At […]
My favorite part of the neighborhood Christmas party is seeing the Marines come to pick up the pile of collected toys at the end of the night. Find your local Toys for Tots drop-off here.
