    Secret of the Wings Birthday Party

    Our baby turned 6 this year, 6!!Its all going by so fast!! Being the creative type yes, the Birthday Girl is the princess who designs her own dresses. ūüėČ She didn’t want just any run of the mill party!! Let me just preface this with saying, we don’t do great, big birthday parties in our family. Don’t get me wrong, we make a big, huge deal about birthdays, but we don’t do ginourmus, invite-everyone-you’ve-ever-met-destination birthday parties. I’m not putting that down, I’m just saying its not us. ūüôā We keep our parties smaller, 6-8 kids, only the close friends she actually plays with. That can be hard, don’t get me…

    The Puffle Skirt!

    I’ve been playing around with the idea of kind of a bustle skirt for my daughter for a while now.

She drew a lily and then a¬†gorgeous, intricate design on a shirt, with the¬†bleach pen. I loved this idea and was instantly¬†inspired¬†by it. I wanted to make my daughter a little summer, day dress and I wanted “wishing flowers” on it. I pictured soft,¬†lightweight¬†knit fabric, a circle, braided neckline and an A-line dress with sweet, little wishing flowers blowing in the breeze. Wishing flowers are my daughter’s name for a dandelion when its in the white, puffy stage. Because, of course you’re supposed…

    A Fairy Village

    I did kind of a silly thing. It was one of those things that seemed harmless, at first. I introduced my daughter to Pinterest. Yes. My daughter, the one with big ideas already. To Pinterest. No obviously, I didn’t (and don’t) just let her loose. But one night while we were watching tv, I hopped on to Pinterest and she asked what I was doing. She snuggled up and we looked together. She was hooked. She’s often asking if we can look at projects on Pinterest. I have, more than once, found her playing in her kitchen in the playroom, working on a recipe she “found on Pinterest.” Yeah, its…
