Shorter Days.


It was dark by 8:45 tonight. I thought I was ready to see Fall, but I find myself surprisingly saddened to see Summer slipping away. Not yet, not just yet.

Lovely LIttle Handmade Give Away.


There is an amazing giveaway going on over at Lovely Little Handmades. As always I am torn putting it on my blog. Yes it means another chance for me to win. But it means more people entering. Oh well, I"ll take the extra chance. :)

It's the first time I have been there in the summer time since I was 21. 
It wasn't the trip I had anticipated but it was beautiful. 
It was a reminder that we are all in this together.

Two New dolls I've been working on. I am in love with them both. So hard to put them in the shop. Not crazy about how the top one is photographing. She is absolutely adorable in person. Maybe she needs a different dress. What do you think? Feedback is much appreciated.

Keeping Busy While Keeping Still

It's been hot here. So hot in fact that Hubby and I have started sleeping in the basement. Which means we pretty much live down here now. I go upstairs to change diapers, fix super easy dinners, and put the girls down for naps/bed. I've pretty much abandoned house work at the moment. I try to stay on top of the dishes but other than that, not much cleaning is happening. The heat is supposed to break on Saturday so I figure I will give the place a good scrub down then. That doesn't, however, mean I am not staying busy. I find the best way to stay cool is to keep my body still and my mind occupied. Since watching countless hours of cartoons doesn't distract me the way it does the girls, I have been keeping my mind busy by making Yo-Yo hair bands.

I know I am about a year and a half late on the yo-yo band wagon, but my mother-in-law just got my a yo-yo maker for my birthday. (I am lazy what can I say). I made Maddie Goose a bunch of embellished rubber bands for her first birthday. They turned out so well I decided to make some for the etsy shop. Off to break up a fight between my hot cranky little ones. Hope you all are staying cool!

I'm Back

I thought I needed time away. Time to figure out our schedule. Time to slow down and enjoy the moment. What I remembered is that this place is vital in reminding me of the simple things that make up my days and make them what they are.
