a busy week


it’s been a very busy week.

the weather warmed up so we’ve spent a lot of time out and about.


it’s been lovely. just lovely.


we went to the library.

(the best part of the trip… the windows)


for the first time in weeks we had soccer practice.


and a week would not be complete without a trip to target. (and a trip to the snack bar)


i’ve also been hard at work trying to get my shop filled back up. yay!


i’ve been crafting. up to my elbows in fabric scraps. mmm… fabric scraps.


i decided our house needed some spring inside, too. so, i got to work making fabric garland.



they’re so pretty that i had to make a few and put them up all over the house.

simple and so sweet.


IMG_1026it was a stay inside kind of day.  (again.)

IMG_2250it was a build a fort kind of day.


it was an add new pins to my shop kind of day.


it was a 2:00 cup of coffee kind of day.


it was a snuggle dexter on the couch kind of day.


it was a watch your girl scoot around on the hardwood floors kind of day.


it was a make yummy rolls kind of day.

so, off i went.

i’ve been dying to try paula deen’s quick cloverleaf rolls and, like so many of her recipes,
they were fantastic.

oh, paula.

the best part is you make them with plain old refrigerated biscuits.


they took about 5 minutes to put together and they were kid approved!

i’ll be making these again and again.


spring snow & scrabble tile magnets

Snowy Jonahwell, it’s spring time in colorado and that usually means snow.

Snow Yard

Snow Storm in April of 2013

lots and lots of snow.

Snow Irislots of soggy coats, hats and mittens.Sleepy Iris and, plenty of steamy baths and hot meals to warm up my babes. Scrabble Tile Magnetsall that snow and sitting around the house was the perfect excuse to finally figure out what to do with my thrift store scabble tile. so, i went to work. IMG_2258i had a roll of magnets and i simply snipped and placed them on the back of each tile. easy peasy. IMG_2261 they don’t really hold anything up on the fridge, but my  4 year old son thinks they’re great. he’s been spelling small words for days now. see, he can hardly keep his hands (and dirty fingernails) off them for a picture.
