Sometimes you find the perfect pair of shoes.

I'll be taking a little blog break for a week or two. Life is a little hectic right now, and the boy often hijacks my laptop for homework:)  See you soon!

Happy Birthday, Matt!

Daddy got a little help with that cake.

Happy birthday to a great father and the perfect man for me. We love you!

Halloween on the Brain

A walked dog, a clean car inside and out, one skirt and two pairs of shorts (it should be around 100 degrees Monday!) - I'm feeling very productive today. But, I still have a shirt to finish and bread to bake, so I'll leave you with thoughts of Halloween. Now I just need to figure out what I'm going as this year! Suggestions?

I'm Batman

Max is not much of a "dress-up" kid, so I had to capture this rare moment in his future Halloween  costume (the shot looks better when you click on it).  That's the Bat Cave he's constructing there - can you tell we're in Batman mode these days?

Simple Kids Showcase

Just wanted to mention that the fabric tag chart was selected for the Simple Kids Showcase.  Megan also has a list of links to some fabulous blogs. Check it out!

A Message

A message from the cosmos fell onto my shirt the other night.

Moss Beach Album

I've had these painted map pages laying around for quite awhile, possibly for a future class, but since MDW has closed, I thought I'd use them. The cover is a combination of tissue and map pages, the insides are gessoed map pages with machine stitching. Simple, but perfect for a mini album. I was inspired by a post on the Scrap For A Cure forum, where they asked you to list the five things you couldn't scrap without. I had cardstock, patterned paper, paint, ink, and sewing. Okay, I cheated here a little with the sticker on the inside page, but just a little:)

(well, I guess the scheduling didn't work on this one. I'm too lazy to re-do it, so we'll just leave it here until the next post...)
