These Clips Make Me Giddy

Tee shirts squared

Tee shirts squared

New moms of twins need everything. EVERYTHING. Times two. But that doesn’t mean you want to be the practical friend who shows up at the shower with two packs of diapers, two boxes of wipes, and two snot-sucking nasal thingies. At least not without throwing in...

Washi and Wear

Washi and Wear

While I’m a huge fan of origami art, I never know exactly what to do with them. I’m thinking a row ofswans on my mantle may not be the greatest design decision I ever made. But, now I can actually wear my washi (the beautiful paper used to create origami)...

Get Your Own Derby

I’ve Taken Back My Coffee Table

I finally put my foot down, and cleared all the puzzles, Play-doh, and crayons off my coffee table. Call me crazy – I like to be able to put my feet up at the end of a long day and not get glitter and glue all over them. Thanks to our cute, hand painted table...

Misogynists, Read No Further

Misogynists, Read No Further

When my daughter was born, I made a vow: no clothing with sayings like future hottie or future runway model. I mean come on, she’s a baby. Not a bulimic-in-training. Apparently I’m not alone in my convictions. TIred of all the negative, sexual, and...
