I have been Uber inspired with Pinterest of late!!! Re-invigorated for the the craft-a-holic in my blood.

That being said, I have a few projects I would like to share.  

Number One: 

An ADORABLE Owl Rattle for my almost 1 year old boy Hayden, who celebrates our BIRTH day on July 5th. Since he is a baby, we are not going over board with gifts, so I decided to make him a little present with my own hands.  Handmade is better in my opinion (although, believe me, I usually buy gifts).

Here is my Owl, made using this pattern from Lovely Little Life (HERE)

I usually find other peoples patterns hard to read, but this one was very straight forward, well written, and I had ZERO issues! 

I also whipped up some wall hangings inspired by my twinnie, to hang in my crafting room!

Then I decided to clean my kitchen, that entailed pulling my refrigerator out to get the art projects that had fallen behind, and beside it. I was HORRIFIED by what I found. 


Dust, and bunnies, and magnets, and old cat toys, and bottle caps, etc.

So, I decided to take out my vacuum, grab that who's-e-what's-it attachment
(shown here)

And vacuumed the whole backside. See, so much better!
I believe I actually heard the fridge thank me ;)

Boston May 2012

We went to Boston for the first time ever at the end of May! We had a few things to check off of our bucket list. 1. Have Sam see the ocean 2. See some Whales and go on a whale watch 3. Go to an aquarium 4. Go to a planetarium 

We checked all of those things off, had a blast, and the boys did too!
