With my children’s outgrown clothes, I divide them into four piles: save for future, give to friends, donate to charity, and not-sure.

We are gearing up for another party at our house. (Yes, it is quite overwhelming to have Paul’s, then mine, then Christmas, then Clara’s, but then we’re done for awhile.) Clara wanted to have a “snowflake party.” After asking her about six times over the course of a few days, she [...]
Cleaning out her attic the other day, my mother-in-law found some “vintage” fabric at her house and suggested I make PJs with it. I thought, sure… wouldn’t hurt to give the pattern that I was planning to use for Christmas PJs a test run! While I don’t love everything about how these PJs turned out, [...]
Stylish newborn photographs are becoming “the norm” over “a splurge.” It seems (maybe because of pinterest?) that everyone’s trying to find a great new prop or pose to use for their little one. Here’s one idea that is darling and a DIY…

Every once in a while, your little boy needs to be “dressed” up, right? I usually try to dress my little guy nice for church on Sunday, but there are many occasions where something a little bit dressy is needed. The problem is, you still want your little man comfortable. Enter the onesie-embellished tux, tie, [...]
As you may have seen in a previous post, at the end of last month, I hosted “An Indoor Picnic in the Hundred Acre Wood” for my daughter’s second birthday. It all started when I saw the physical likeness between my daughter and Christopher [...]
