Happy Birthday Baby!

A Day at the Park

It was kinda chilly but I decided to take the kiddies out to the park anyway. My

sister came along.. you know that's trouble! She said she's always wanted to

jump off a swing, so she tried it. I didn't see her jump since I had my back

turned, but I did hear a loud indescribable body hitting the floor noise. Like a

mix between a SMACK and a BANG. When I turned around, this is what I



Last night when the kids went to sleep I started crocheting these strawberries.

I posted them on my Etsy shop today.

Years ago, my parents would buy a little lamb cake from this bakery every

Easter. It went out of business so, I found this lamb cake mold and

I gave it to my sister so she can start the tradition again. She spent hours

making this cake so Easter could be extra special. Too bad its head rolled off!


I wanted to say thank you to the 'Easter Bunny', aka my sister, by putting Moon

Sand in my daughter's basket. I have purple sand all over my floor, furniture

and stuck to the bottom of my socks. I think the Moon Sand will somehow find

its way to her house this week.

Oh well, Easter is over. Good bye to painted eggs, Easter Bunnies, yummy

candy and over eating.

Can't Wait til Summer

I can't wait for the summer and the trips to the beach. I couldn't stop thinking about it all morning so I put it on paper.

It's the newest addition to my shop.

I see seagulls in my future..

My First Blog

First I would like to tell you a little bit about myself..

I'm from Hudson County, New Jersey.. right across the river from Manhattan.

I have 2 beautiful daughters who inspire me everyday.

I see beauty in the simple things like...

The sun coming in a dusty room.

The way the leaves crunch underfoot in the fall.

Fireflies in the summer.

Sand in my toes.

Ahhh.. the wonder!

This is Me...

I just started this Moustache Collection. I should be putting some more up in the next couple of days.

I also started making felt dolls.. they are so funny looking. I think that's whats so cute about them.

I also draw stick figures.
