I saw my friend Nikki today and, as usual, I left wondering, how the heck does she work full time, raise 2 of the cutest kids, and make a quilt and tile a back splash in her spare time. Oh, and she’s also a great cook.
She has a great blog idea (here is where I would link to her cool site if it existed!) but I’ll just say that it inspired me to be more adventurous and just DO MORE. Because that’s the intent behind this blog – to force me out of my shell. To learn new things. To connect with people outside of the 4 walls of this house. Because sometimes they feel like they are closing in on me….
With that said, I’ve decided to tackle a few DIY projects here. Can I learn to reupholster a chair? How about a homemade memory game for Caroline? I’m obsessed with felted bowls – could I make one?
First up: a homemade birthday cake for Henry’s birthday party this weekend. Here’s what I’ve narrowed it down to:
