2018 Goals

Life in our quiet neck of the suburbs seems to always be busy and my garden goals for 2018 are no different.

The first thing I did this year (like every year for the past three) is to pick up some new chicks for our flock. Unfortunately, last year, our girls didn't survive through the summer as we earned a new neighborhood chicken hawk AND an owl. With the combination of those two and the fact that our birds are stubborn about going into their coop at night, we ended up with 2 survivors out of 6. So this year, I decided we were going big or going home. We got 6 new chicks and, until recently, all have survived in our backyard.

Quiet Book Finger Puppets

Since giving birth to my son, I've turned a lot of my crafting attention to creating quiet books and other items that he would enjoy. I made a lot of the items in his nursery when I was pregnant and wanted to continue to expand into things that he could actually play with. I stumbled upon Quiet Books and became hooked!

Painting a New Pantry

I did this project many months ago and am excited to be sharing it today. My mother-in-law moved last summer and was getting rid of some furniture. Unfortunately my husband and I drove our small car the 6 hours to her town so we were only able to take a few things back home. Luckily, I was able to snag two of these utility pantry's, disassemble them, and bring them home in the trunk.

Hiatus Over

Wow, the last year and a half have had so many changes (both joyous and heartbreaking) for our family. I left the blog rather rapidly after getting married when life caught up to us in our house and am just now returning to it --deeming the hiatus over!
