Lake Champlain

Our favorite "rest" stop, Lake Champlain.  Kids and dog get their energy out. We picnic. We introduced the spot to my dad for the first time. I'm thinking he'll be back! 

Ferry there and back...

Well, it's been exactly three weeks from taking the ferry to and from. I took the month of August off of work and spent it thus far on the St. Lawrence River with family, most just the kids and me, sans husband.  We are now back, all together.  We have sleeping children, an exhausted dog, happy (and talkative) husband, purring cats, EGGS, a VERY overgrown garden and a farmhouse that clearly cannot talk, but I'm pretty sure it's saying "I'm glad you are all back in Maine, this house and property are much happier filled with children."  This month has given me a full camera card and a full heart. Thanks to my husband for working hard so we could vacation, for my dad for bringing us back and all my family who made the between days wonderful. We love Northern NY, but are happy to be back in Maine. Fair warning...days ahead I have pictures to come!

Mama made: Birthday dress round up

I made four dresses for Audra for her birthday this year, here are all of them in one post.

Eco Friendly Wipes

It's been 8 1/2 years since I've regularly bought paper towels, napkins, baby wipes or tissues. I just wash them on hot with the diapers and they come clean. We use these flannel squares all the time. So many have worn out, my two big kids thought we should make more. They helped make these. Love a project they can do!

Horse camp

This one had a blast at horse camp, but only let me take this photo. She loves her animals!

Mama made: Car Bags

Adjustable bags for the cars, to go over the seats, one for each kid.  Filling with things they can do in the car.


This little one (in her mama made dress) thinks I got a lot of necklaces for her.  Hoops. Colombia Raincoat. Wool socks and monster socks, LL Bean Kleen Kanteen, doesn't even look like it's been used. $5.

Mama Made: Birthday Dress #4

 Birthday dress #4, and I must say I love this one. It brings out her baby blue eyes. She loves it too.


Audra and I felted homemade soap.  Easy and fun project for a 6 year old.


 Brand new casserole dish with carrier, vintage paper dolls, some sort of connecting game, stackable cups and a book. $10.00

Below: Books. Vintage transferware, bag that is supposed to fit some sort of electronics, but holds a book perfectly. $6.00

Appliqued Shirts

I've made coordinating dresses for my girls, but haven't yet made anything coordinating for boys.  I made these fish shirts for Adrian and my nephew.  I can't wait for them to be twinsies!
