Too cold to play, the minutes crept like hours yesterday. Perfect time to bedazzle a tee with a toddler! Cut triangles out of a new sponge, paint sponge side with fabric paint (I used Pebeo Setacolor Opaque Fabric Paint) and stamp away. Pretty simple and fun for little ones too!

Oh, how life has changed. It’s 9AM and I’m rocking my son to sleep for his first nap, after all, when you wake up at 5:45AM, 9AM feels like afternoon. Good time to check in on Coachella. Loving the crowns!

My mother-in-law, Dianne, is an excellent knitter. She’s responsible for starting my knitting obsession over six years ago and she continues to inspire me with her creativity. Last night, she gave me a little tip, which I’d like to share with you . . .
Try knitting scarfs up a size in knitting needles in order to achieve a better drape. For example, if a yarn suggests using US size 8 needles, try using size US 9 instead.
