Little Strides

The first snow of the season started early this morning. It wasn't sticking nor really accumulating- but it was just enough to occupy the kitties at the window.

As you can see the shop will be updated all day today with new new new stuff! Men's recycled & vintage ties,new girl ornaments,new Happy Home ornaments and new sets of note cards!

Today our blog reaches 300 posts!! Happy Happy Joy Joy! Thank you to everyone who visits, reads, comments and makes my days brighter!

Little strides- I finished my great nephew's story time tote. Made from a super soft flannel with pirates. I've been collecting favorite books- new & used to fill it with. Then we'll give his papa a copy of They Might Be Giant's kids album. Hope they like it.

We are really trying to make most of our holiday items. We did last year too. But it is quite the challenge being creative to think of gifts for 20+ people.
How about you- what are you making for others?

I've made 3 birds so far- for the bird mobile (which sounds hilarious). Zach also mentioned switching the embroidery hoops on the wall near the crib to black & white fabrics- so today I'll dig out my suitcase of black & white fabrics- mix it with red and see what we have.

Well back to the crafty grind,maybe it's time for some a hot shower and a hot cocoa.
Here is my SPT picture- I'm wearing the I LOVE SNOW hat I got at Old Navy one year for Zach- but he says I look cuter in it- I won't complain.
