A Few Beautiful Blogs


I wanted to share a few blogs on my blog roll this week.  With rainy days all week, these are a few of the places I am visiting when baby is napping.  All are beautiful in their own way.  Relax and enjoy!

Attic 24 – Oh the color!  The yarn!  The patterns!  The crochet!  I absolutely adore this one so very much!  Lucy is most inspiring!

Sew Liberated – After a hiatus, Meg McElwee is back with a revamped blog that I adore!! I have both her sewing books, Sew Liberated and Growing Up Sew Liberated, and love every pattern.  Definitely one of my favorites!

A Beautiful Mess – Talk about inspiring, Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman have created a gorgeous lifestyle blog that is beyond beautiful!  I want every photo to be my life!

Design Mom – Another lifestyle blog that I could stare at for hours.  Gabrielle Blair created a gorgeous blog full of gorgeous things.

Magic Onions – This is a sweet Waldorf Blog I have been perusing for years.  I love all the crafts and ideas!  Many of these have been created in our home when the girls were young.  I love all things Waldorf.

So there you have it….a few blogs I am reading this week!  Grab a cup of coffee and a snack, you may be here awhile!

Review: Creative Kids Photo Guide Craft Books



Just received a set of books that are perfect for summer!  Creative Kids Complete Photo Guide Craft books!  Along with a couple extra bonus books.

The Creative Kids Complete Photo Guide series leads the way with step-by step instructions.  Sewing, crochet, knitting and bead crafts!  Super easy instructions with clear photos of every step.  Tons of great projects that will keep the kids entertained through the summer!


For a little more variety, dip into the sparkly side of life with Charm Love Friendship Bracelets and Rubber Band Glam. They are both sure to be a hit with kids from about first grade through middle school.  Easy enough for my 7 year old grandson, and holds the attention of my 13 year old daughter!

My kids are already diving in and excited about all the projects layed out.  I am excited to share them with you!

I Won Something!

I never win things so this is such a treat! Tansy, over at Dancing in a Field of Tansy, had a give-away for a copy of the Essential Herbal magazine she is published in, and I won!

Thank you so much Tansy. You all need to go check out her blog while you have time. She is the herbal go to gal in my opinion! She also publishes a web magazine, Herbal Roots. Check it out!



I have to let you all know about a great children’s book that was sent to the girls over the holidays. It is called, “Spring A B C’S” by Dodie Sparks. It is a wonderful little book! A sweet poem on each page for each letter of the alphabet and the illustrations are gorgeous! The girls love it so much that it is usually in the stack of books they bring me to read at bedtime..:) Dodie is Jonathon’s grandmother and has always been very close to me. She has been wanting to write a children’s book for as long as I’ve known her, 24 years now! Please, do yourself a favor and check out this book for your kids or as a gift! It is worth it, believe me. Also, check out Dodie’s Website for more information! You can also find this delightful book at Amazon.
