Ladybugs Softball Banner

My little miss is playing her second season of softball. There are distinct differences between softball and baseball and mainly the cuteness factor is amped way up.

DIY Giant Scrabble Tiles

Our play room needs a little decor and not to mention some serious organization. Lets start though with decor. I want to have a big gallery wall with a little more than just pictures in frames. I liked the idea of really labeling the room with a sign that said “Play.” In our house we […]

It was the little detail embroidered detail on Anna’s dress. Each bow as a hand painted floral design reminiscent of that detail.   Click […]

Cross stitch family portrait
