Baby Ornament Photo Shoot

I’m walking through Jo Ann’s with my dad one day when we had this brilliant idea for Z-man’s Christmas photo shoot. Rather than stuffing a baby in a stocking or wrapping like a present, we wanted to make him an ornament! We quickly text my cousin Mallory over at Griffin Handspun to see if she […]

Straw For The Manager- a Christmas tradition with story and activity

How To Swaddle A Baby

When I had my first child, I swear that kid kept kicking out of her blanket. I’d re-wrap and re-wrap all day long. I even purchased the Velcro swaddles and she’d kick so hard it would undo the Velcro. At about 3 months, I finally gave up and she learned to be soothed without it. […]

Maternity Photo Shoot

You know how they say with your first child you do everything, with your second you do less, and with your third + you do nothing? Man, is that true! I have scrapbooks upon scrapbooks of pregnancy and first 2 years of my oldest’s life. I have half a scrapbook of my 2nd. And so far nothing […]

Subway Art: Love Like Crazy Lyrics

Have you seen the art of “Subway”? It is actually very fun (and easy!) to make. Whip up your creative side because this form of home decor is all about how you think it should be squeezed together. This was a wedding gift for my little sister. She fell in love with the song “Love Like […]
