Got bunnies?

Are these not just the cutest bunnies? What a creative way to recycle a sweater.

How fun would it be to tuck these little guys into an Easter basket?

You can find them on Etsy, by Sweet Tweets. I just love the name of her store!

Dedication

At our church this morning, we had Sam dedicated to the Lord. Our goal is to raise our children up in a strong, secure Christian home where they have every opportunity to truly know Jesus as their personal savior. It was a BIG BIG day (to quote Dave's Uncle Wes). We went to lunch at Buca to celebrate and then back to our house for cake. The man of the hour was not available for photos as he was quite exhausted from a full week-end. We were lucky to get this family photo to mark the occasion.

Later, we all took naps on the couch while watching Madagascar 2, and agreed not to leave our cozy nest for the rest of the day, which will be filled with games of hide and seek and finishing the movie Fireproof. I say finishing because I slept through half of it last night, which by the way has no bearing on the movie itself, Dave says it's excellent.

Then my friend Erin did some tweeking, and now I really love it.

Domestic Bliss

What could be more sweet than dancing with my baby in the bathroom to my blog music, seeing his sweet smiles in the mirror, drool on my shoulder,  and watching the girls take a bath with Cinderella, Ariel and bubbles...no fighting, whining or begging to be heard.  In the distance is the dishwasher humming and I know the laundry is being expertly twisted and tangled by a machine, all while I enjoy the simple pleasures of the day.  Life is good...

In case you ever wonder...



...green sugar sprinkles do NOT come out of carpet. Especially after a certain 3 year old has tried to lick them up after dumping the whole container out.


they get wet...

then they dissolve...

then they stay there FOREVER!


Yep, my little tornado has struck again.
I'm thinking the cut-out sugar cookies we made yesterday wasn't the best idea I've ever had.

I need another cookie...

Oh happy day...

Photobucket

I am so excited to be a new member of the fabulous design group, IvyLane. This has been a dream of mine for a long time.

Unfortunately our house has been hit hard with the flu so it will be yet another week before I am listing again. Right now I'm just tending to my kids, working on some orders and then finishing up some samples. Stay tuned...

Murals-By-Kim

One of my closests friends, Mrs. Kim (as my girls affectionately call her), has delved into the world of children's mural painting. She has just completed her son's room and has set-up her own web-site. I can't wait to see more from my very talented friend. If you are in the Minneapolis, MN area and are looking for something one of a kind for your peanuts room, then please contact Kim.

A "let's celebrate" sale!

With a stay issued for the CPSIA, I'm feeling quite celebratory. Not to mention the fact that I have been dealing wtih two little girls that have been throwing up all over my house for days and have no time to make changes. So, I have decided to keep the sale going in my Etsy shop with lowered prices and an additional 10% off your order of 3 or more pieces. Check it out, because this sale ends at midnight, February 9th.

Be on the look-out for some new fun designs this spring as I am starting a new design group, on eBay, with some great girlfriends. More details to come.
