I swear, watching birds fledge their young helps seal the universal understanding of parents. Today, I had the fun of watching the 5 little chickadees leave the nest. It was a most exhausting chore for the parents. They had to coax, feed, and keep abreast of the safety of their nest.

As a parent, can you relate?

I just loved watching. I kept thinking they were saying, "Okay, you're next. Have fun. Life's an adventure. Love you...visit often!"

And that was one little guy that was highly anxious to leave, but annoyed at my Oliver, who was yet again, his vocal, energetic self.

what a great way to enter the big wide world...with parental encouragement, understanding, and belief that one can encounter the world, have a good time and suceed! If only all of us would follow the example of those relentless and caring birds!

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

Precious Boy

A quiet, misty morning walk in late March 2012. This little precious boy puts a smile on my face every time I look at him. I mean, really, who wouldn't smile like there's no tomorrow at this little guy?  I love him.  Every. Little. Thing. He almost (ALMOST) competes with my husband. My sweet husband with a similar expression.  What do YOU think?
