huzzah!

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness… I had a great time at this year’s Michaels Makers Summit. There’s so much to share from it, so stay tuned for a post coming soon. Pinned this cute outfit, but especially love the unique basket bag. If you’re wear an 8 in shoes, please get these vintage wooden heels. I ordered Maryanne Moodie’s book, On the Loom: A Modern Weaver’s Guide, and can’t wait for it to come in. Ben and I have ...

huzzah!

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness… We are getting back into the swing of extra-curricular activities. The girls love piano and swim, and they want to take jui jitsu. Brave also wants to take some theatre classes. I think this hanging basket would be cute above Soul’s bed.

our golden hour garden party

True and Brave are going to Texas for the summer, so we wanted to do Father’s Day early since they won’t be here. Ben’s request is a tree and a gardening day, so we spent Saturday gardening with him outside (and I told him we can pick up another tree on actual Father’s Day), and then we surprised him with a garden party at golden hour later that evening. I made herb shrimp capellini with spicy bread crumbs and oatmeal ...

flower crown kit

For this month’s Michaels Makers Challenge, the girls picked up one of their craft kits for kids and made flower crowns together. The kit made 4 crowns, so it was perfect for my girls. Initially, there was a bit of fighting over who got what color wire (there are tiny colored beads on it), but thankfully, that didn’t last long when the one who was fighting saw how much fun the other sisters were having. True, Brave, and Soul each ...
