our christmas card

hope you all had a christmas filled with joy and love. and hope you felt the magic in the air. 

this was the christmas card we sent out this year. josh took the picture changed it into a black and white and then worked his magic on photoshop with the writing. we ordered copies and then taped them on white card stock i bought at michaels. easy, peasy.

peace to you!

great gift idea for kiddos

we bought these twig blocks from fat brain toys for karoline + rory for their third birthday this fall and they love them. they come in a set of 72 and are perfect for creative open-ended play. carved from natural wood, i think they make a great gift for the 3+ child. get it here for $31.99.

feeling colorful today...

sorry for the silence lately. i have no real valid excuse, except that our lives have been filled with christmas prep, nativity puppet shows, family christmas movies, christmas concert rehearsals, letting the girls trim the tree and then having to retrim the tree because all the ornaments were in the bottom lower half area, eating lots of gingerbread cookies, shopping for christmas presents and listening to christmas carols. anyway, hope you are enjoying this time of year. i have found that i have to take a step back when the girls are in school and head for a walk on the cliff walk or do yoga so i can start living in the moment and appreciating this time of year instead of getting caught up in the craziness.

feeling colorful today as you can see. hope you enjoy today's eye candy.

i am enamored with this house i spotted on the website OWI (office for word and image). the beautiful hard wood floors, scandinavian furniture, delicate lighting, artwork, fireplaces, and great lighting make me giddy. you can see more of this awesome house right here. all photos by muller fien.
