I Can Be Denied Nothing!!!!!

  Today is my 35th birthday, which is pretty exciting 🙂 I like getting older, I sort of feel like I’ve earned it and am becoming more of a real grownup. Since it’s my 35th, I decided that I would make a list of 35 facts about myself, that maybe everyone doesn’t know, so if…

Mother’s Day Zippered Pouches

  Hello! I’ve been back in Korea for a few weeks now, but have felt completely wiped out with jet lag, and spring allergies, and the kids have started baseball season, so that has dominated a lot of our time. I’ve been working on several different projects (a maxi skirt, a purse, some beading, etc.)…

My Kids Are So Cool {plus a lot of other random stuff}

Emmie decided to draw one of our leather recliners today, and Isaac helped manipulate it in photoshop to turn it into pop-art, and they did an amazing job! (She’s only 11, I am totally in love with how she made it a little stylized, but didn’t lose the essence or perspective of the chair.)  Do…

Roman Mosaic Placemat

We are currently attempting to survive the last few days of school, and Emmie has the last of her social studies projects coming up on Rome. 50% of her grade is taking treats to, and participating in the end of year party (Caesar Salad and Olives) 35% is her toga for that party, and 15%…

Guest Posting Today!

Emmie’s Quilt

Remember when Emmie got a sewing machine for Christmas? She finally finished the quilt she was working on!!!  She cut out all the pieces by herself (using my go baby cutter) and then she sewed the whole top by herself, and did about 50% of the quilting herself! (she was really nervous about ruining all…

Emmie’s Phases of the Moon Project

Emmie came home today saying she needed to make a model of the phases of the moon; we came up with a paper mâché box, with a styrofoam ball spinning on a wood peg axis. There is a little knob on top that you spin to rotate the moon through its phases. And a hole…

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

I love birthdays, (Not like my sister Sarah LOVES birthdays, she loves giving, getting, everything associated with birthdays, and she can be denied nothing during her birthday week!) But today happened to be my birthday! I turned 32 this year, with out too much fan fare as far as the age is concerned since I’ve…
