Day to day

“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.” ~ Paulo Coehlo
All is calm and well around here lately. The kids being sick has meant more crafting and more baking. Keeping my son out of the kitchen was nearly impossible as long as I was in it. He is such a love, wanting to participate in every step...Or, he could have just been bored out of his mind from being stuck at home with me for 5 days, he he... Crushing peppermint and melting chocolate fixed that :). We also managed to make cards, decorate paper, and play with brand new stamps that I am head over heels with. They are made by Yellow Owl Workshop, and you have to take a look!!

Okay, short but sweet, I'm off for more merry making...
much love to you friends
be happy



  1. love peppermint bark! and the stamps look amazing - off to check out yellow owl workshop :)

  2. oh, your days sound incredibly similar to ours...right up to the peppermint bark.
    hope your kiddos are on the mend.

  3. Enjoy all the making and baking - one of the best things about this time of the year. I hope your kids will be all happy and healthy again soon. xo

  4. sounds like a good cure to me - anything sweet in the kitchen made together is sure to bring good things! i love your packaging, the fabric you chose and your little handmade cards. the white chocolate chunks look so yummy! nice to see your boy - looking so much like his dad here!

  5. Your days look very much like mine this week, minus the poor sick baby, and I am enjoying each and every moment of it.
    Merry Christmas MJ!
