I Don’t Like Running

by This is Carrie on January 31, 2011

Run Like a Mother

Even though I’ve been running for over 2 years, I still have to convince myself that I LIKE to run every time I lace up my shoes because I actually don’t LIKE to run until I’m finished.  But, there are a few things that help get me motivated (even excited!) to pound the pavement. Dailymile: […]

Making Good Progress

by This is Carrie on January 30, 2011

Todd has a dream that Big Brother will be riding a real bike (without training wheels) before he turns three.  Thanks to the Strider balance bike, I actually think it’s possible.  He’s got two more months left to practice. Learning on the Strider Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

by This is Carrie on January 30, 2011

A projectile-vomiting and lethargic baby has this non-worrisome mom worried enough to be sitting in the ER on a Sunday night. # ER’s are lonely. Luckily I have twitter to keep me company. # Meningitis is ruled out. Phewsh. He’s alert now, smiling at dr (making me look bad). Still want to watch him for […]

Refashion Reading for Kids: Socks for Supper

by This is Carrie on January 27, 2011

Over the years, I’ve come across a small handful of children’s books with refashioning themes. This week I was introduced to a new one. Socks for Supper is a sweet story about creating, refashioning, and giving.  I am so thankful a dear friend thought to gift the wonderful, yet out-of-print book to our family Our […]

Making Stuff: The Cutest Crocheted Baby Cap

by This is Carrie on January 26, 2011

Even with the warmer than average winter weather we’ve been having, The Baby has gotten a lot of wear out of the first crochet hat I made him, so I decided to make him another cute little hat.  Like most of my crochet projects lately, it took a few tries to get it just right. […]

Adventures in Mountain Biking

by This is Carrie on January 25, 2011

They let me pick the trail so I guess I’m to blame for the adventure we had.  It started off with me forgetting my helmet (that’s when you know it’s been too long since your last ride). Then, unbeknownst to me, the recent bad weather had all but washed away the trail.  If I wasn’t […]

My Creative Space

by This is Carrie on January 24, 2011

This is my creative space. It’s neither big nor beautiful, but I’ve produced many things in this humble corner of our family room/living room/dining room (when your house is 1500sq ft all the rooms must become multifunctional). I’ve owned my “sewing cabinet” (from Ikea) for about 6 years.  It’s made it though a cross country […]

Making Stuff: Buffalo Check Baby Blanket

by This is Carrie on January 21, 2011

My favorite thing about Kathi D is that she knew full well I’d love the piece of fabric she wrapped The Baby’s gift in just as much as the gift itself (maybe even more).  The large piece of organic cotton buffalo check fabric was so lovely and soft, I immediately knew it must be made […]
