Meet Squirrel. He is my daughter's favorite toy!! Yesterday we went out running errands and after a large snow storm we had recently, it went from Spring back to Winter. Well, Squirrel always comes with on outings and she thought that he would be too cold because of the snow so she wrapped him up in two of her gloves, one on the top of him and the other on the bottom. While we were out she asked me if I would make Squirrel some clothes so he would stay warm. Well, last night, this is what we came up with!
I made him two hooded sweatshirts and a nice cozy sleeping bag for him to sleep in at night. He slept in it all night and slept well. She really wanted me to make him slippers so his feet would stay warm but I was afraid my 8 month old son may get one and choke so I suggested pants. After two failed attempts, Squirrel has to settle for sweatshirts only. The tail was too hard to go around :)
I love how excited children get about the simplest things. When I was finished making them for her she said, "Thank you so much mommy! I love them!!" That is the best thing in the world to make your child so happy. I believe that Squirrel will be a part of this family for a long time.

After a few months of working on it and making changes here and there.....my website is finally up and running!!!!! Come check it out!
I bought my own domain name last night and uploaded everything this morning! Way easier than I thought it would be. This is a goal I have been working towards for a long time and now my dream has finally come true!! All purchases will still route through Etsy but maybe in the future I will add a cart on here and make it a stand alone site!!
I would love some feedback on it. Go take a look if you have a moment :)
P.S. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a coupon code for 10% off everything in my shop to celebrate SPRING!!!!!

This past week I have been doing a lot of new things with my daughter. One of them was teaching her how to play Candy Land. Out of about 10 games, I think I won maybe 2 of them. She loves being able to find the color and count the spaces on her own. She will be 4 years old in two months and I can't believe how smart she is and how quickly she is picking up on things. We are learning the alphabet with recognizing the letters and are trying to learn to write a few.
Today we did Taebo & Pilates together while little brother was taking his nap. I cannot wait until the weather gets warmer outside and we can start going on walks through the neighborhood again. We try to go on 2-3 a week and play out on the new swingset on others.
The weather is supposed to get into the upper 40's and soon it will be in the 50's!!! Can't wait for that! I went to wheel the garbage out this morning without my coat and didn't even shiver!! Definitely a good sign.

So I learned today that if you are a crafter.....you should always have a first aid kit handy! Me, the multi-tasker that I am, was trying to do too many things at once and not paying attention, decided to cut some new fabric I bought for an order I got and cut right into the end of my finger with the rotary cutter. Something I have never done before and hope to NEVER do again!!!
On a brighter note, the fabric was unharmed! I unfortunetly cut myself on my first piece so I never got to sew. The verdict is still out on whether or not I will need stitches but for now, I just have it bandaged up. My new plan is to now bring the fabric to my mom's house tonight and she is going to cut it all out and I will just stick with the sewing part.
