Back to Optimism

My life is perfect again. Back to business, constant motion, cries, songs, and naps. Emphasis on the naps. Yes, my non-sleepers have decided life is better with a bit of shut-eye. And so, Mommy is in seventh heaven to have some consistency back.

(Which means Caroline and I can sneak downstairs during others' naps to create again!)

This weekend we enjoyed a friend's birthday party hosted by the talented Elizabeth, gorgeous cake, picturesque games, and all...

which meant making a gift I've had on my mind for a while...

A carry-all art kit. Something you could slide a standard sketch pad in along with your favorite tools: colored pencils, paint brushes, and so forth. There's that rugged wool felt again with a little boyish flair of camouflage.

Like other things I've mentioned, this "how-to" is coming soon, with the new version of this blog. The new website is coming as soon as I can convince Bobby (my web designer) that it is more important to finish the new site over his getting sleep. Wish me luck.

Nicole, it's been a long time so I hope you remember me! Your blog has become an absolute favorite of mine - it's always inspirational. And I can't wait for the changes you're going to be making! I have a little blog of my own that I recently started and was wondering if you wouldn't mind if I featured some of your fantastic ideas on it once you're up and running. It's http://lilyjanestationery.typepad.com if you'd like to take a look. Will you let me know? You can email me at lilyjanestationery@gmail.com. Thanks!

I can't wait to see the how-to's on these things!! I just started up a website too (www.broomfieldparents.org). It's so fun! I hope yours is up and running soon. I LOVE the bake-off idea. We'll be doing that sometime soon!

P.S. I'm so glad naps are back! We've been having the same struggle in our neck of the woods...
