Jackson is going to be Nacho Libre for Halloween this year and since he’s folically challenged, I was in need of a baby wig. From the beginning, I was pretty sure that a beanie would work as a skull cap but I had no idea what to use for hair. At one point, while at [...]
It’s ridiculously hot over here. The kind of hot that you wake up in the morning with big plans and can’t accomplish anything that might take you away from your refrigerated air. I love how mild El Paso’s weather is most of the year but the Summer months are torture. Seriously, who can function in [...]

I’m not an expert in any one particular field but I picked up most of the techniques with very little assistance or instruction and without inflicting too much bodily harm (except for that one [...]
A while back, when I first found out I was pregnant, I bought 36 Gerber cloth diapers from an online friend that was going out of business. I had heard that while these are crappy for diapering purposes, they work wonderfully as burp cloths and when she offered me some for a great deal, I [...]
Going to be staying with some friends from high school in Philadelphia and thought I would take their little girls some handmade gifts. Of course, being the super organized person that I am, I was still wrapping them up the day before we left! Isn’t Molly the cutest?!@#$% Thank you so much to mmmcrafts for [...]
We’re finally in full on Halloween mode over here. About time, huh? I’ll probably be posting nonstop decorations and zombies for the next week.
