Catching Up… Again
So far, my desk apron has done the trick! Â Ryder has grown bored of trying to get under my desk, but has found many otherÂ mischievous fun things to do.Â Â Unfortunately, he still climbs under the other part of my desk (under my feet) and pulls on all the cords, etc. Â I could probably easily remedy this […]
I quickly became tired of chasing Ryder away from all the junk useful and well-organized items under my desk.Â So I decided to try to create a way to keep him out… I figured the ol’ “KEEP OUT” sign just wasn’t gonna cut it 🙂 So I found a inexpensive piece of fabric that sorta […]
Lamb’s Wool and Easter Bunnies
At 18 months old, I’m fully aware that my son doesn’t yet grasp the “reason for the Easter season.” Â But I figured that he’s old enough to have a great time picking up plastic eggs and jamming them into a basket or bag of some sort. Â I’m trying hard to reduce the amount of clutter […]
Super-Easy Table Runner… My First Tutorial!
I enjoy changing up a few decorations here and there according to the seasons and holidays, but I’m not the type to go all-out.Â And I DEFINITELY don’t like the jinky-junk decorations that just clutter up the countertops and become bait for my curious 17-month old.Â Well, my mom came to visit this week and […]
I LOVE Ryder’s crib bedding.Â Ryan picked it out before we knew if we were having a boy or girl, so it’s gender neutral, and even educational.Â :)Â You know how it goes… once you pick out the bedding, you can’t live without the multitude of accessories that accompany it: the lamp, the valance, the […]
Holy Hooded Towels, Batman!
Up until about a month ago, Ryder only got two baths a week. He was born in the fall, so he was never sweaty, and since we have really hard water, I didn’t want to dry his skin out more than it already might in a harsh winter. Since he wasn’t being bathed often, we […]
No, not me. My sewing machine. GRRR!!! I’m right in the middle of finishing one Christmas gift project, and preparing to start another one, and I did something silly and broke it. Guess I should use my machine-less time to tackle other projects like laundry and dishes. 😀
First Post… And I’m Already Complaining!
I never intended to start off my blog… a document of my journey to the “new me”… with a gripe, but I just can’t help myself.Â I’m becoming increasingly irritated with the selection of fabric and ribbon choices at my local JoAnn’ s and Hobby Lobby.Â And I could live with small selections if it […]
