If your family is at all familiar with the series Avatar–the Last Airbender then you will, no doubt, recognize this little fellow.

If not, I’ll help you out just a teensy bit.

His name is Sokka and he’s from the Water Tribe.

I think it would be fair to say that our family loves this show beyond belief.


We love Aang, Katara, Toph, Zuko, Sokka–and all the rest. So much so–that my son–back when he was the “Bald Kid”–

even dressed up at the grown up Aang…

and won 1st Place at the Ebay Costume Contest…remember?  

At some point, I’ll likely make all these cuties from the pattern I found at Crafty Tibbles on Etsy.

But when I offered to make any of the characters for Miss Chomp for her birthday, without hesitation she said, “Sokka, please.”

Done, my dear. Happy Birthday.

Next I’ll probably make my personal favorite– Uncle Iroh!!

Eeeeek I’m sooo excited!

I’ll keep you posted.



Personal Turkey Placecards

Introducing our new Personal Turkey Place Cards!! Just the thing for your Thanksgiving seating arrangements. You can let the kids help you cut these out for the big day OR you can make them up as a big surprise to your family and friends! You’ll have grownups and kids alike scrambling around to find their very own turkey face on the table. 

Oh, it’s been WAY too long since we made any of our sweet Thanksgiving Place cards. If you’ve been around here for awhile, you may remember our other place cards. We’ve had Pilgrims and Native Americans over the years that you could color yourself–we’ll update that soon, fear not. 

So, what else could we do this year but turn all our little turkeys into actual–sort of– TURKEYS!! Aren’t they simply adorable? 

The extra good news is that these sweet turkeys are already full color and ready to be cut out. Just add your family pictures and you’ll be home free!!

Miss Chomp’s Cookies

Been quite a while since this sweet little face has shown up here–right? Well, Miss Chomp and her cute friend Piper got the baking bug one day….and decided that a boat-load of Oatmeal Farm Cookies were in order.

Which, in my humble opinion–is ALWAYS a good idea!

And then they got real creative and added chocolate chips to the tops. Such a brilliant generation to compliment perfection. Heh, heh.

Pretty sure I’d buy anything these little cuties were selling–wouldn’t you?

Solid win.

I love you Miss Chompy!


My Boy’s Bucket List

When my Daney-boy told me that he was taking is sweet little family to Boston–AND to his first actual Patriot’s game–well, I knew something special was in order. I grabbed the appropriate colors of my favorite Caron yarn and got to work. With three different patterns and some embroidered patches from Ebay, Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear had some awesome new hats for the special day.

As you can see–they were a hit!!

Of course the Patriot’s did their part too and put on an unforgettable show right where my boy could see it, up close. Good job, Tom Brady!

doTERRA Convention Coming Up!!

Because the doTERRA Dream Convention is coming up THIS WEEK, it got me thinking back to the doTERRA Alive Convention that we attended a few years back.

It was wonderful to meet up with our sweet friends…

and sit for together for THREE whole days…

just soaking up all the incredible new oil information

and the science behind it all.

We filled whole tablets taking notes, without missing a beat. WAAAAY too much info to just trust that we wouldn’t forget.

But this, this was easy to remember…

and all this happiness, it was easy too.
