Sunday Morning (PJ) Pants

Chase seems to grow taller by the day… not by the week or month.  All of a sudden she’s outgrown all her pj’s all over again.  So I got this idea to make her some out of these giant stripey knit shirts that I found at the thrift store.  The pants are made from the sleeves!

Sewing With Kids :: The Candy Bolster

Inspired by a birthday gift me and Chase have been really exploring sewing.  This is an easy project that we took from an idea in Chase’s head, to a sketch, to a finished product in a single nap time.  It’s supposed to look like a hard candy.  The kind wrapped in cellophane with the twisted and fluted edges.  It’s a nice simple first project.  A good place to start.

Martha

Ok, so I promised I’d follow up.  The only two things on my wantee list where a video monitor and a new stroller and I’m pleased to report that I’ve got both bases covered!  Those were definitely the highlights though I’m glad to have a nice new Boppy.  Our old one had seen it’s share of babies already.   Read the rest of this entry »

Pretty Things

I spent most of the weekend totally wiped out by a terrible virus but felt so much better today that I treated myself to a short outing.  I found a couple of sweet and tiny things that followed me home.   Read the rest of this entry »

Adventure!

Several weeks ago, I submitted an application for tickets to a taping of the Martha Stewart Show… and I got one!  And not just any show, mind you, the baby shower show.  So I hopped a train to NYC on Tuesday.  The only sad part was that I only got one ticket and not the two I requested.  Me and Shannon were supposed to go together.  It was going to be awesome but it wasn’t meant to be.  It’s ok though.  Even though I could have talked for the entirety of the 2.5 hour train ride it was nice to have some solitude too.  The train is so, so nice.

Phoning It In

Lately I’m too lazy to take any real pictures.  It’s so much easier to use my phone when the picture it takes are half decent.  I just have to decide on my favorite filter now and stick with it.

We had a good weekend.  I cleaned like a crazy person yesterday before having people over.  I Read the rest of this entry »

Lots-a-Links

Well, we made it through Monday.  Nothing particularly noteworthy was accomplished but we all ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and I still have plans to get some laundry done tonight so I’m claiming success.   Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Friday

We’re lucky to live in a neighborhood with lots of good food options but every now and then, particularly now at 23 weeks, I get Ben to drive me around looking for something a little different.  Most of the time we end up in Fells or Harbor East.  I like hanging out by the water.  And I like Pitango Gelato.  I freaking love it.   Read the rest of this entry »

Thomas Rides Again

Thanks for sending me all of your good information and advice on binding books.  I ended up using this tutorial and found it easy and straightforward.  I started with the fabric wings step and moved through to the end papers over the course of two days.  I used white glue and so far so good.  The cover seems to be holding up.  It can be done!  Sorry for the lousy pictures.
