Clothespins

I have a new love of clothespins. I bought a package last month with big plans to make an advent calendar of clothespins and envelopes holding 25 little treats. Yeah, that never happened. I ended up putting all the clothespins in a little container on the kitchen counter, and then realized they make great chip […]

Last week my mom sent me an email from our cousin Janice with info about her friend Martha’s new venture, maki inc. The tagline for the company says it best: “Helping impoverished women in Peru by providing a source of revenue for their beautiful handmade products.” In the spring of 2008, Martha spent a month […]

Divided Ceramic Plates for Kids

My kids are still huge fans of the muffin tin lunch. But sometimes I’m not inspired to fill the cups with 12 different kinds of food, and cleaning out the pan can be a pain. So I’ve been on the lookout for ceramic divided plates with little compartments to hold a small portion of lots […]

Super cute headbands

Suddenly I am very into headbands. It started with this one, and then my mom gave one to my daughter that is perfect for keeping her hair out of her face. And surprisingly enough, she will actually wear it for a long time. I spotted these handmade headbands on Etsy, and I kind of want […]

ToweLocs Giveaway

When I got an email from Cindy Sawyer, creator of ToweLocs, I was happy to hear that I wasn’t the only mom with kids who have a problem with throwing towels on the floor after they use them.  Instead of being continually frustrated, or accepting the fate of bending over to pick up towels off […]

Best Bibs Ever

I’m so excited. I finally found the bibs online that my kids have been using for almost 6 years. My mother-in-law bought these for us at Walmart, but I never knew the brand and I gave up searching for them online long ago. I thought they had been discontinued until tonight, when I stumbled across […]

Top 5 Kids' Real Tool Sets

***UPDATE: Some of these kits have been discontinued. Here’s a link to my updated 2014 Top 5 Kids Real Tool Sets.

Hello again.

I’ve been away for too long my friends. Plenty of posts planned for next week, including a few fun giveaways. In the meantime, I bought these boots today (half price at Last Chance) with some birthday money . As my dad would say, I’m now “37 friggin years old”. He says this on every birthday […]

Make your own pumpkin puree

If you find yourself taking care of sick kids, and have an extra “pie pumpkin” (also called sugar pumpkin) on hand, then maybe you’d like to make a little homemade pumpkin puree while the kids are vegging out on the couch and watching Baby Einstein videos. Yes, I piled up the Baby Einsteins on the […]
