Warm Up with Mighty Leaf Teas {Giveaway}
Across much of the country, Mother Nature has given us a bitter taste of winter.  Here in Pennsylvania, it has been painfully cold, and living in an old house makes the change in weather more acutely felt. It seems like all day, every day over the past week...

A few weeks back, the boys and I met some friends at Adventure Aquarium, where they've just reopened the Hippo Haven exhibition. We've been to Adventure Aquarium a few other times, and have always been impressed with the hands-on, family-friendly exhibits, ...

On Mother's Day
I learned this weekend that the key to having a nice Mother's Day is dropping any expectations.  Isn't that the key to peaceful parenting in general?  It seems like any time I have an expectation (the kids will just nap in the car, one diaper is enough for ...

A Kids' Tinkering Kit
For Soren's birthday (over a month ago--this post is long overdue), I thought that turning six was a perfect time to give him his own tinkering kit, with "real" tools. It would be a box of items that he will hopefully use for tinkering and building, especia...

Rabbits and Shoulders
Have you ever had to function without an arm? Or a leg? Or a hand? Or an eye?  Parenting takes everything you can give physically, but this week I'm muddling through with one arm.  Stupid me popped my shoulder out of place on Sunday, while painting the upst...

Make a Personalized Trick or Treat Bucket
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Halloween.  I love to cover my house in pumpkins, skulls and all other things spooky.  The fall tends to reignite my desire to craft, so naturally I make a few new things for Halloween each year. This weekend I decorated...

Begin Again
It's been a quiet summer--at least here on my blog.  I'm sure many of you can relate, trying to keep that marathon of long summer days under control, not burning out too quickly.  School has begun again for my first grader (what??? I know, I can't believe I...

Easter Goodies from Stubby Pencil Studio {Giveaway}
I'm sure if you're a regular reader here, you'll know that I used to be an art teacher, and therefore have a fondness for art supplies, both kid and adult oriented ones.  I also like to think of myself as ecologically-minded, so when there's a craft or art ...
