So it finally happened. After two perfect children who never climbed out of their crib once until they moved into a big-kid bed at age 2.5, I now have a child who fears nothing. Easter weekend, Charlie decided he wanted to out-do the Easter Bunny this year and show his siblings how much of a dare-devil he could be. Ten months, a child that puts EVERYTHING in his mouth, likes to roll/climb/crawl everywhere – and now he dives out of his crib. Hippity hoppity hippity hoppity look at Charlie go! His mattress is now lower then the lowest setting. Here’s to hoping he stays put for at least a few more months before the next acrobatic trick. PS – like that sweet potato smudge between the eyes? We’ve got a picture of each of the kids with that look. Man, they love …

I know sometimes I do! These are part of the Animalia collection and I have to say, I was reluctant to get them on press b/c I just wasn’t sure if the design was finished yet. After months of hemming and hawing a large wholesale order of these finally got me on the ball. And now I’m smitten with the little lambs. Printed 1 color and paired with blossom envelopes. 4Bar set of 6, or you can get them as a combo set with the rest of the clan (I’ll be showcasing them throughout the week).

In continuation with A = Art Deco Here’s a cheap DIY project that would be great for any Art Deco event. How about replacing your maids bouquets with these, or doing them as a party favor for a little girl’s birthday party! They could even hang from the back of your dinner chairs at this price! Feathers + Chinese folding fans = easy! Tools needed*: glue gun | glue sticks | scissors Materials needed: peacock feathers | felt (not too much is needed) | wooden folding fans (or another fan of your choice). Step 1: Trim 6 peacock feathers with good sharp scissors around the eye. I think the “Peacock Feathers – Eyed Sticks – Miniature” would be perfect for this project which can be found at the link above. Step 2: Cut a small patch of felt about 2-3″ round/oval. Arrange …

Sometimes I go about the day without paying much attention to my surroundings. These were discovered after I got the kids in bed last night and finally had a look around at the disaster zone within my home. I thought it was so beautiful how each dinosaur/creature was aligned and balanced on our 8′ railing, observing the usual chaos that encompasses our daily lives. Still and silent predators, they were awaiting my attention. Oh how I love the spontaneous aesthetics of a 4 year old!

Ever wonder what one does when a babysitter is scarce and printing needs to be done? Enter playdough. I’m not a big mess encourager (except for paint) and now I can’t believe I haven’t made playdough before! It is a mindless, hour over hour kid entertainer. No fights ensued today! Lots of printing got done. Totally worth the cleanup involved afterwards. Photos from the press tomorrow and over the next week!  Recipe: 2C. Water, 2C. salt, 1c. Flour. Add all ingredients into pot on cooktop and stir constantly on low heat until it balls up. Prepare for dead-arm. Keep stirring until its on the drier side. Remove from pot and let cool for a minute of two, add food coloring and knead in. If its still a little sticky, let sit out for about an hour (the kids won’t be happy about this). Keeps …
