Can you tell I’m all about cute nails this summer? First there were my rainbow fingers and now my strawberry toes.

February 10-11, 2012? Where will you be? I will be here:

Why? Because I’m crafty. Because I love spending time with friends. And meeting new people, especially creative ones. Because I am excited to learn new skills and stay up late and eat bad food. Because I could always use a girl’s weekend. Because it is my friend Crystal‘s brainchild, and if Crystal is involved, it’s going to be good. Also, because Wendy will be there. And lots of others. I can’t wait.

None of my other parts are ready for Summer, but at least my hair is.

Spring KCWC – Day 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — littleredwren @ 2:51 pm

This is my first time participating in a Spring Kids’ Clothes Week Challenge. I had grand ambitions of doing it a week early so it would be easy to photograph and blog with time to spare, but I got nothing done. I still am hoping to post every day, be very impressed if that comes to pass, will you? Today I present to you the summer staple, a nice high waisted skirt in Very Berry by Alexander Henry.

The pocket was the biggest selling feature. The boy child was completely jealous and found the rest of the leftover fabric and was asking me to whip him one up, too. I was quick on my feet and switched his tee for one with a pocket. But I feel a little bit of mommy guilt so I have a boy project on deck tonight.

Romance is when your thoughtful husband slyly asks your color preference for a cute little item online. For some reason, it didn’t raise my suspicions/ hopes. And a few days later when he handed me a package, I was clueless about what would be inside.

I freaking love this little owl. Even better that it was such a sweet out-of-the-blue gesture. Life is good. Being married to your soul mate makes it better.

Help David Cox Family

Filed under: Uncategorized — littleredwren @ 2:22 pm

My good friend, Tami has an amazing sister-in-law. She is a mother of six, and wife to Tami’s brother and she passed away on Tuesday. Could you help honor her memory by taking a look at this website? It is a fundraising effort to support this family in this very difficult time. Seeing that number move on the sidebar makes me grateful for good people. You can help by donating or just passing the word along!

Are you kidding me.

I hesitate to post this only because I might be completely overcome with jealousy if I hear of someone else getting their hands on one of these luscious rings before I do. But I cannot withhold this beautiful eye (hand) candy.

(Just so you know, the animal carousel on the bottom right SPINS. Are we all swooning together now?)

Rotating Exhibit

Filed under: Uncategorized — littleredwren @ 3:05 pm

We originally put these hangers up to hang some pretty Christmas vinyl in December. We decided we would just keep them up and rotate them out with random albums we pick up at garage sales.

Little Hoot Ami

Filed under: Uncategorized — littleredwren @ 3:19 pm

After I made Little Pea, I had to make a Little Hoot version of the owl from Amigurumi World. The owl pattern is my favorite because it is easy peasy.

The last book in our trio is Little Oink. There isn’t a pig pattern in the book, so I’m going to have to get creative.

Buntings for Everyone

Filed under: Uncategorized — littleredwren @ 1:58 pm

The other Sunday afternoon I was checking my reader and came across this beautiful post on Lifeflix. I was especially drawn to the mini buntings on the shelf and decided I needed to bookmark the idea in my head for another day. The boys (the husband and baby) were napping and Wren was having “quiet” time in her room. I quickly changed my mind about waiting on this project and brought my scrap bag into her room. I told her we were going to make something special for her brother’s room and asked her to pick out orange and blue fabrics from the bag. She found a lot that worked and I cut them into triangles by hand and then quickly sewed them together while she supervised. It was the perfect project to work on together on a quiet Sunday afternoon. The only hitch was I couldn’t measure the shelf so it ended up being too long. No problem, I cut off the extra bits and used them on some of his nursery art.

Sometimes I am over buntings, but not today.
