This is a fairly easy project. I has already bought a few extra t-shirts at the thrift store to make more leggings for Miss Maddie but decided to make a night shirt instead.

I put her Minnie Mouse night shirt on her for the first time last night and thought she would ba...

I always used to wonder how mom knew, just from looking at me, that I was tired, sick or that something was wrong. In looking at my daughter now, I know.


Oh the things I have learned from being a parent for only 2 short years so far. The things I wish I could tell my m...

I came across this awesome little bag on Pinterest (where else do I actually search and browse these days).  After a bit of searching, I finally found the pattern. It is fairly easy and has good instructions.

I came across this simple idea on Pinterest (of course). How easy are these little tea bags. What a great idea, not to mention cute.

Easter Bunny Happenings...

Last Easter I started making some of these cute stuffed eggs and birds. They turned out quite nice so I made some extras for my nieces and nephews as well. It is definitely a good way to use up some scraps. Cheap, easy and good for baby and to...

These are relatively easy. Especially if you follow the directions and look at the pictures, insert "wink". It is nicely illustrated here

I say this because: 1) I have made 2 of these before and 2) because in making them again, I am making lots of mistakes!!

WOW! There is a lot of work that goes into getting read to potty train! It seems like I have been working on this for months. Probably because I have. 

1. I have been working away at training pants for months now.
