My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

You guys, I am totally having an Anna (from Frozen) moment lately. "The sky's awake, so I'm awake so we have to get up!" I totally feel your pain, Anna. While the curtains in my bedroom are dark and don't let much sunlight in, our pesky garage door is totally messing with me this summer. The sun comes up EARLY in the summertime and with the way...

I've had a bit of a love affair with leather lately. The wonderful thing about it is, there are so many different textures, thicknesses, and colors, and the applications are endless. Lucky for me, my dad is a hunter, going to South Africa every year and also hunting buffalo, deer, and elk closer to home. He gave me a few tanned hides, and I got...

Ok, guys! I need to tell a little back story so you can see where the idea of the tooth fairy pillow came from. My little girl is 5 and she's full blast 24/7. She's loud, stomps around the house, can't play hide and seek because she's too loud - get the picture? She is a LOUD child....until bedtime. Then she turns into a silent ninja. She can...

In my never-ending quest to slowly, but surely, convert our family to non-processed organic foods, I quickly realized a problem. And it's a big one since I have small children. I never thought about this until I started packing our own healthy snacks to take with us to play dates, preschool, and sporting events, but it's a big deal (at least in...
