Christmas Stockings

Christmas Stockings

Corban got a scooter decal this year to represent his athleticism (and blatant love for scooters). It also reminds of many scooterings to our park, falling down, learning new things, beating fear, meeting lovely neighbors, and breathing fresh air. I’m sure the scooter will be a big part of next year as well, but it […]

Dining Room Reveal

Dining Room Reveal

Missionary friend Ben Miller built and stained our beautiful farmhouse table and buffet shelf for us. (Plans found at www.ana-white.com.) We love it so so so so much! Whoa. Two kids live here. We finally found some baskets to fit our shelf at Hobby Lobby. Who knew finding more than one of the same basket would be so hard??? […]

Kid crafts that don’t work.

Kid crafts that don’t work.

If you’ve kept in touch with us much through this blog, you well know that I love doing crafts with kids. As in, it’s thrilling for me to help little ones experience the joys of glue and paint and stickiness and pom poms and scents and mess and paper towels. But for every great project […]

Finishing Touches

Finishing Touches

There was this blank space above Jaeda’s crib that I just wasn’t sure what to do with. But inspiration struck from my beloved Pinterest… I used the same fabrics from the hoop mural to make mine. P.S. Notice the brown minky changing pad cover? A friend read that ours didn’t match…and had ones that did […]

What I did with my Christmas money

What I did with my Christmas money

Welcome to Jaeda’s room! Just to remind us where we came from: (Btw, this was before we bought the house.) I think they call this Apartment Beige. I should know because we put in 6 years of apartment living! Now on to Jaeda’s room. First are a couple overview pics; then I’ll get into what […]

A hat, a cutie, and a brother

A hat, a cutie, and a brother

I sewed a hat for Jaeda, since she’s outgrown all her newborn hats. The yellow strip is from a dress I long loved. This might be my favorite picture. Ever. My little beauty. She’s taken quite a liking to that thumb. Just chewing, no sucking (thankfully). So coy. “That ear looks so tasty.” Best friends. […]

O {Felt} Christmas Tree

O {Felt} Christmas Tree

Felt Christmas tree: This is totally a Pinterest idea (as are the stockings from the last post), but I tell you I’m committed to actually doing what I pin! I bought a yard of green felt to make the tree; it was actually more than I needed. $3.97 + $1.44 for Command sticky strips Then I cut up more […]

A Cardboard Flop

A Cardboard Flop

Moving comes with a lot of boxes. Let me clarify that. A LOT of boxes. So I decided to get crafty and make something. Like this bed. James did help a little when the cutting got tough. That was some meeeean cardboard. I presented Corban with his new bed, perfect for Puppy to sleep during […]
