Forest ABC’s Free Printable


We start preschool today, and I am so. ready. I love my little zoom Bug, but we’re both happier when she has a little play time with other kids! We’ve been really focusing on learning the alphabet lately, but she is just too darn creative. It has been both a blessing and a curse. In terms of learning The ABC’s, it most certainly has been the latter. Her alphabet goes something along the lines of “A, B, C, D, E, X, Y, ZEEEEEE! B! Ellemeno PEEEEEE!” Whenever I try to tell her that she has to sing them in a certain order, I get met with a lot of opposition...

Your soul.

Soul Happy Printable by Spotted Pepper Designs

So many days I get to the end and feel so exhausted. Wasn’t it Bilbo Baggins that said something about not enough butter and too much bread? I feel like the butter.

It’s held up to some strong endurance sports. It’s carried all my babies. It’s fed those babies. It’s felt love and happiness. It eats tacos. I really like tacos.  It’s also done some really bad things. It fell off a wall once. Like 7 years ago. And I still walk with a limp. It has bailed out on supporting a few pregnancies. Apparently, my blood likes to form clots, so I can’t sit for longer than 2-4...

Woodland Animal Nursery Prints


There is nothing more lovely to  me than a moss covered stump, a snowy forest, or sunshine glittering through Fir trees. It’s a place where I think magic still exists in this busy world.  It’s a place where fairies exist and trolls roam wild. I love the forest because it reminds me to never grow up, to always let my imagination run free. I still want to grow up and be a princess. Not the live in a castle Sleeping Beauty princess. The live in the forest dancing with animals Briar Rose princess. Last Valentines Day, I designed some cute little cards that I absolutely ADORE and my two year old...
