a little cozy goes a long way (and a hand warmer DIY)

i’m not a super mom.  in fact, i’m pretty sure it’s an oxymoron or the opposite of a double negative, or something that cancels itself out.  most days i’m just doing what has to be done, making sure my babes have what they need and praying that everything else falls into place. but there is […]

fall felt & banner

Fall is in the air…..  actually, not really.  It’s been in the 80’s around Seattle (80’s!).  While I appreciate the extra sun before the rain, I can hardly wait for the seasons to change.  Cozy sweaters, pumpkin patches, comfort food, apple orchards, hot cocoa, and the list goes on. Even thought it may be a […]
