Doodle Dolls Paper Dolls

If you have a 3 or 4 year old daughter (especially one who loves dolls or clothing, or in my case, both), or are going to a birthday party for a girl of that age, I highly recommend this Doodle Dolls paper doll book. It comes with two punch out dolls and a TON of […]

Rainbow Rice

I wrote earlier about our ventures into sensory play.  We did get the 5 lb bag of dry pinto beans, and colored some rainbow rice — and both have provided lots of feel-good playtime.

Yubo Lunchboxes

I’m always on the lookout for new and improved kids’ food and drink containers — which of course includes lunchboxes. I love the concept of these new Yubo Lunchboxes. They’re BPA-free, and they come apart into pieces that you can pop into the dishwasher. You can customize them by picking your faceplates, which is good […]

Easy Watermelon Sorbet

My friend Sara is compared to Martha on a regular basis — the cooking, the sewing, the decorating… you name it.  She can either do it, or she’ll figure out how to do it.

Resa Design

Don’t you love getting a hot tip? I do. And I have one to share! I was chatting with a friend at a birthday party this weekend and someone asked if she made the t-shirt her little guy was wearing — a black tee with a fabric initial on it. She was VERY excited to […]
