I feel icky. What started out as a scratchy throat last night has turned into a full blown cold. I’m curled up on the sofa with the computer while the Sparkletots are running amok from room to room making as big of a mess that they possibly can. And I’m too miserable to care. All I want is soup.

I got a bunch of foam leaf sticker for the Sparkletots, and found that they would be perfect for this project. Continue reading →
These cherry wood veneer leaf cutouts from Paper Source are so stinking cute! I can think of a million uses for them. They would be good on walls, on tables as scatter, you could use them to make some fall themed coasters. *love* Continue reading →
