Nature Nature Walk Walk Walk

We have been taking many nature walks this Autumn. Some are with the whole family, some are with me and the boys, and some special ones for just George and me while Arthur’s curiosity and wonder is being fueled by school. Continue reading

Apple-Print Thank You Cards

My goodness, this last month (two months really) has been extremely busy. We have had birthday parties, hosted Arthur’s birthday, baby showers, bachelorette parties, and hosted my sister’s bridal shower. Those were just some of the events occupying our weekends. Continue reading

Beach Discovery and Sorting

Today was one of those days that I dream about: beautiful crisp autumn air, crystal blue skies with sporadic puffy white clouds that look like they were painted by an old Dutch master, and the slight breeze that hints the smells of Fall. So, even though both Scott and I had mountains of work to do Continue reading

Sorting Shells

With the weather turning warmer, we have been venturing to one of our favorite destinations for play and exploration: the beach. Over the past couple trips we have collected some shells, rocks, seaweed, rock snails, and crabs. We got to build sand castles and we, and I really mean Arthur here, got to release some energy and romp around  in the waves during high tide… Continue reading

Bird Seed Ornaments

You can tell this is a rhino right?

So, for a while now I have been wanting to make bird seed ornaments with the boys. I had seen a few ‘recipes’ on how to do so- many very different from each other. Some had flour, some didn’t. Some required baking, some didn’t. So, I thought I would try to morph a few of the technique. Continue reading
