I feel most alive when I am doing something creative: sewing, scrapbooking, decorating, singing, crafting, painting, playing music, (and recently) making bread- I love it all! I was recently inspired by Jodi's blog to 'treasure hunt' at thrift stores for items to be remade. It is a perfect outlet for my need for creativity and my need for shopping, which doesn't go away even when I am super busy.

I found this owl for $2. It was an oak color. Hope it looks cute in Madelynn's bedroom!

Also inspired by Jodi (thanks for all the great ideas Jodi~ I love reading your blog~!), snack bags. One for Daddy Man, Muffin, and Cousin Noak.

And from Muffin's "acativity" time we have a pom-pom giraffe, bear, bunny and my sorry attempt at a monkey. I think I have just as much fun as Muffin during "acativity" time.


  1. Those are so sweet. I really love them. It is refreshing to see thrift store items being "repurposed" so cute!

    Have fun today! Love the pictures.

  2. Thrift stores rock! Your owl and sandwich bags are so the little animals too.

  3. Hi! I love your 'owl' find and what you did with it! Super cute! Your snack bags are so cute and what a fun little pom pom project! You are such a good mommy!

  4. ohhh,, I am lovin the green owl! the dick and jane bags are great, i just love that fabric!

  5. Beth- I checked out your etsy shop and everything is soo cute! Would you mind if I posted a link?
