Birthday shirt




My daughter turned seven in February and I made her this shirt using this tutorial. I have been wanting to make one for a few years now and I finally made it happen this year. I tried to be on top of the ball for the soon to be four year old but I rushed it and the 4 turned out backwards. Then I ran out of craft time. :sob: Hopefully I can get another done before she turns 7.

Happy Happy Birthday to my sweet SEVEN year old Lovebug!

Chanukah elf


The Chanukah elf is here. He came all the way from Mother Menorah. Its like the North Pole but much brighter because of the 8 lights.
Ok ok I kid. I probably would've done that if I thought about it earlier though.
Gingy our redheaded Elf. The kids named him after a cookie. Oh the irony.
 
We are doing a somewhat traditional elf sitter. He has a letter from Santa and will be his spy. The kids don't believe in Santa, and they have known the truth since the beginning. But this year we will pretend. The same way we pretend that we are having tea with the Queen.

Even though we are atheists, we still enjoy the Winter Holidays and decorate for Chanukah and Christmas. We love the rainbow lights, blow-up whack-a-penguin, and the festive music.
We emphasize gratitude and generosity. We give what we can to others and are thankful for everything we have. We are atheists with morals and values and we do our best to do good.

 Planking Elf

Our Elf flew in from Christmas in Prescott.

I found this blog post sitting in my drafts folder. Obviously it should have been posted 3 months ago. Better late then never.

Be Kind



I recently saw this quote and loved it so much I made into a chalkboard.


 Maybe I'm not the only one that needs this reminder.

Featured Friday: AnyList App

I recently stumbled across a new app. Thinking it was too good to be true, I decided to use it several times before featuring it. It really does what it should and it has an easy and simple learning curve.

Do you struggle to keep up with your grocery lists? Do you forget items? Your partner is stopping at the store and gives you 3 minutes to come up with a list?

I answered yes to all 3. I needed an app to help declutter my brain.

Ocean Breeze blue, I love you

Oh what a beautiful color she is.
We went from this ol thing...




To badabing!!










I used 1 can of Krylon primer and 2 cans of Krylon Ocean Breeze. I sanded it with fine sand paper to give it the shabby chic look and now its perfect. The First finished photo shows the most accurate color. This is the perfect chair for toddlers and preschoolers to sit at the table with the family.
