Valentines Warm and Cozies

                  





I am so in love with these leggings! and hope to make a pair for myself. I'm a cold-y and live in my parka throughout the winter, even though our West Coast weather is supposed to mild. There are people wearing shorts! Shorts people! It's insanity! Anyways, if I have enough fleece left over, I am making a pair of these warm and cozies for myself.

In the meantime, if you would like a pair for your little, just head over to my shop and pick up a pair. There are only a few, because I am using the little bit of fleece I have had for the past few years, but couldn't figure out what to do with it.

I am sending lots of warm thoughts to you all:)

A Little Catch Up

Well hello! It has been a long time since I have checked in. I kind of forgot how to use my blog and this post is taking way longer then I had anticipated! And so far all I have done is load the pictures and write these sentences:) 

I thought I would do a Wordless Wednesday for my first post, with a mish mash of photos from the last couple of months, but then I felt like some of the photos needed a bit of explaining, so I've scraped that idea. Most of the photos are random selections I made while scrolling through our photos, so there really is no rhyme or reason, but it will give you a tiny idea of what we have been up to.


I just like this picture, and it was taken after my last post so I thought I would throw it in, and it's kind of a nice beginning to this post.

Lots of teeth have been lost. I think the one lost in this picture, was actually lost. Like swallowed lost!

Two teeth in one day. One of them was ripped out of his mouth while visiting the dentist. She noticed how loose it was and decided to pull it out without warning!

My camera decided to stop working properly and so a lot of pictures are blurry! The auto focus works occasionally, and now the light meter has stopped working. Lame! But cute little photo, if it wasn't blurry. This is Furno. Jude's costume for Halloween. Furno is a Bionicle, for those are not familiar with Bionicles.

And the another Halloween shot, must have been taken by Rob, because he uses the flash, and I refuse to use the flash.

 Me and my last minute costume. I was dressed as Janelle from the Chipettes. I just used Jai's Simon costume from last year. 

It's winter now, so a lot of time is spent indoors building set ups.

Lots of booties



I finally tried on some dresses. These are by Discarded Courture. It was a last minute crap-I-really-wanted-to-get-some-nice-photos-of-me-in-these-dresses-and-she-needs-them-back-tomorrow moment, so they are taken after we put the kids to bed, as we were getting ready for bed ourselves. Not a great time to take photos.



I entered an Upcycleing contest through Brushfire Records and my piece was accepted and entered into an auction fundraiser. They sent me all this as a "Thank you". I'm pretty stoked!

On the ferry.

It is impossible to get a decent photo of us all. At least one person was blurry in every single one of the 50 photos we took. Well that's not true, there was one photo where we were all in focus, and I thought this was the one, but clearly it's not, but I'm too lazy to find the focused one, so.... 

I felt super guilty for not sewing my kids some cloths for Christmas, so I made them some "warm, cozy" pants as Jasper calls them. I have a bunch of fleece that I was given a couple of years ago, that has been sitting in my closet and I couldn't decide what to do with it all. It's cold. And the boys like to play outside, so this was a good solution.
 Jude on his Furno bike wearing his red warm and cozy pants. Furno is red so Jude likes wearing red.

 Jasper's super cute legs in his new warm, cozy fleece leggings.




And that's all I've got for today. There is a lot more that went on, but too much for one post. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you the best in this coming year. I have a feeling 2013 is going to be the best year yet!
