This week’s project was building a gingerbread house. My kids were very excited to get started on this one. We braved the bitter cold and went out to buy a gingerbread form kit (ie the cookie cutters shaped to make perfect sides), but inadvertently I ended up with a pre-bakedRead More →

Every family has their favorite traditional foods they make for Christmas. In Michelle’s house, Christmas breakfast always includes a birthday cake for Baby Jesus.

I was hoping to get a pattern up before the holidays for the sweet pea sleepers I made for the girl’s dolls. Unfortunately, it seems that all 12″ knit dolls are not the same. Every time I make a sleeper, I have to make them different because the sizes and shapes ofRead More →
