First the small one and now the big one. I have been home with both of them almost everyday. It has been mostly okay I think?? Can’t really remember because it is such a blur. Pat is finished French classes this week, really looking forward to having him home in the evenings…

Photos include some pinch pot sketches (they ended up looking nothing like those of course), our plant seeds that are growing (a miracle because I am constantly forgetting to water them), a cute girl baby named Ruby, socks I finally finished for Louis on his birthday – the first pair I have ever knitted – completely inspired by these, bright red/orange tights from G the superbud and Louis munching on lunch.

Louis says: “I checked on the calculator and it is too cold to go to school today” 😉

Bought some self-hardening clay. Excited to try it out. Also ordered some fabric – we will see how that looks when it arrives. Need to get some alginate for casting. Tried fixing that plate with some blue acrylic paint and epoxy but it totally did not work…maybe I could use the clay?? Deep thoughts on Action & Production over here…

Louis requested this song this morning. He really likes the mummies and the robots.

Our theme for Louis’s 3rd birthday party was “Birthday Party”. 1 part Dollar Store, 1 part Pearl River, and 1 part Batman/Cars. He was really into it which was so fun…

…the baby is three – tomorrow! We love him so much. ❤ ❤ ❤

The (Odd) Shop

Friday, February 8th, 2013


Did you know I have this shop? Weird right? I don’t get it either. But I do sell something about once a year and that is heartwarming. So I am putting up for a sale a few sheets of the beautiful handmade, homemade paper Louis and I made together a few weeks back. Check it out here.

Just hanging out with my tiniest one. Need to get on the Making Stuff train soon though before it is too late and I forget what I wanted…

This Day Happened (A Week Ago Today)

Pat made a beef and lamb stew and I sat on the couch and read magazines. Everyone napped mid-afternoon and then Uncle Stacy and Lady Carolyn came over for supper. We even got a load of laundry in there somewhere. A great day.
