My first blog, my first post...I am so nervous! It's like your first day of high school! Will people like my blog? Will I like other people's? Oh dear!

Let's start by saying I am a stay at home mama. It wasn't always this way. My work closed almost a year ago and now I stay home with my 2 sons, Collin who will be 5 next month and Giovanni who's 2 1/2.
I'm looking for new crafts and game to play with them. I want to know what all of you do for fun with your little ones? Cheap, fun ideas that work in the winter!

I'm in the middle of wedding planning, we're getting married this July! So I am sure some posts will include the stress and anxiety that comes with that.

There will probably be some of my photography and some humorous links but..

mostly, I want a place to share my love, frustration, questions, hopes, and dreams about my little guys. A place for positive feedback!
<3 I look forward to getting to know you and you me!


  1. hey lady! we love puzzles around here. so we do some dollar store ones that aren't too hard, and we make our own with pictures of ourselves or drawings the kids make. and we make our own books and put in our own stories. we use sculpting clay to make stuff. my 4 year old has been making me clay jewelry all morning and putting it on me. *sweet!* i also make sewing cards out of cardstock and use those big plastic kid needles and let the kids sew around them. since my kids are 7, 4 (nearly 5) and 16 months, i let my older two use an embroidery needle and make garlands out of those little felt pompoms or popcorn or frozen berries or marshmallows or whatever. i look forward to seeing what you come up with. nice 'meeting' you! cheers!

  2. Oh a book! What a great idea. I made Collin a book of animals when he was smaller and he LOVED it. I'm sure they'd enjoy making their own now. What a lovely idea thanks!
