How to Make a Simple Sock Puppet

The weather’s heating up here in Southern California. We’re fortunate to live just a mere 20-minute drive above the valley below because temperatures easily pass 100 degrees daily in the summer. As you climb the mountain, you literally watch the temperature gauge in the car drop degree by degree, till you arrive at home. A decent 15-20 degrees cooler simply because we’re at 5,000 feet.



But it still gets hot up here in the mountains.



And the hot weather…

The Patience of a Quilt

I’ve made a few quilts now, and each one’s always a long endeavor. Much longer than I originally plan. I’m kind of a get-working-get-it-done mind, so quilts are a true test of my patience. You just can’t rush a quilt. And, to make a good one, you can’t just take a few pieces of material. It has to be made of many pieces, lots of stitches, and lots of love.



So, when the house was quiet this weekend, I laid out my Suriname quilt…a work in progress for this past year or so.…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

Simple Project to Make with Kids - DIY Feltboard!

This craft is so simple that even someone with no crafting skills [like me] can do it! It’s also perfect for little ones who can wield scissors. As you can tell from the photo, my scissor skills aren’t the greatest, [I can't cut a straight line to save my life] but Ava doesn’t care. She loves taking the pieces off and rearranging them. I also use it to tell her stories. Originally, I glued the widows and door onto the house, but she just pulled them off [she's 14 months] so I… Continue

At Home With The Kids Ideas

This Winter season has been unusually cold and has caused many at home or snow days with the children. When you are parents of multiples, it can seem like a very long day that never ends--basically GroundHog Day on repeat. The first day seems wonderful--snuggling underneath the blankets and watching a favorite family movie. By the third day, you are totally sick of the hearing the Elmo's World theme song and you really don't care if the kids have drawn on all the walls in the house with… Continue

Kate is out of town. I'm not and it's snowing. I might hate her.

Kate has some great tidbits for travelling with kids (hers are ages 1, 4, and 10) and I mope a lot. You won't want to miss it. Other than that you will find recipes (good food, bad pictures), fun youtube clips (that are family friendly), design ideas, parenting tips (and/or a homage to our dogs), and craft ideas for you or your kids. We are easily amused.

Tips on Being Frugal and Green!

I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.



1. Save cardboard, address stickers, and toilet rolls for art and craft projects

Growing up in Germany, I remember that my mother always collected little boxes and toilet rolls and would drop them off at our kindergarten when she had saved up a whole bag. We would use those materials for art and craft projects. Do people do that here as well?… Continue
