Firefly Baby Romper

8:00:00 PM

I made a little romper for newborn baby Ruby, but somehow failed to take a picture of her in it. I don't remember and didn't love the pattern I used for this, but with some improvisation, it worked!

Don't you just love this Wee Wander Collection?

Wee Wander Firefly Dress

10:56:00 PM

I'm sure many of you have seen the charming fabric line by Sarah Jane- Wee Wander. Her firefly border prints are so, so adorable!

I had to make a dress from the pink color scheme as it reminded me of the beautiful sunsets where we used to live, right along the Mississippi. Warm sunsets and charming fireflies make the night so magical!

Two-year-old Eve was the lucky recipient of this fun pocketed dress, and she called it her "Quincy" dress all last summer. So fun to have a reminder of our beloved Quincy while we were frantically trying to get settled up in Minneapolis.

*I used a simplified and shortened version of my Cinderella Gown Pattern to make this dress. It's such a versatile pattern!

*I started a firefly series last year, and because of all the craziness of moving and having a baby, I put it aside. I still want to share some of the fun firefly things, so here goes!

Free Printable Creature Power Discs

8:00:00 AM


We have some Wild Kratts obsessed kids at our house and I don't blame them! I love that show. So informational and fun. I watched the Kratt Brothers when I was little, and I'm so glad my kids can enjoy their shows too.

So Abe turned 5 this year, and he really wanted a Chris Kratt creature power suit with some creature power discs.

He helped me choose the animals he wanted to imitate and we made these printable discs. We came up with 48 different creatures! I just printed them on bright colored paper, cut them, put two together so they were double sided and laminated them.

Keep on creature adventuring!


Free Printable Weather Chart

7:00:00 AM

preschool free education

I'm doing at-home preschool with my preschool age children this year, so I decided to make a weather chart. They love checking and changing the weather.

For the last couple months, our chart has pretty much looked like this except for the back and forth between cold and freezing. In Minnesota, the temperature is relative. Cold means it's 0-20 degrees. Brrrrr! :)

Anyway, if you're looking for a weather chart, you're in luck! Print it off in black and white or color.

Christmas is coming soon! We are so excited. One thing that our family loves to do is talk about the first Christmas--when Jesus was born. We have nativities of many forms. I made this one so my kids could color them and turn them into puppets. So fun! Hope you enjoy.
