So Much To Say

I have so much to say that I will try to my best to keep it short, and I will continue it tomorrow. My father-in-law is home and healing. He will be back to his old self within a week. Thanks to everyone for the sweet emails and calls!

I was contacted recently to offer a giveaway for a blog--it is an awesome blog. Click on the purple link to visit JDanielsMom. She is a super-mom and posts the most wonderful ideas. Welcome to all my new followers and visitors from her blog.

My real life friends know that I am not a big character person. My girls don't really wear screen print character stuff, except pajamas. I don't know why--it is just one of those things. However, having a second child changed me. Molly LOVES Dora, obsessed is more like it. I painted each of the girls an art box to take on our Dallas trip. I filled them with car friendly art stuff, like stickers, color wonder markers, ...

Since I was showing the girls art boxes, I thought I would share these too. A mom on etsy wanted them for her daughter's party favors. She ordered art cases for each child, then gave me a budget to spend on fillers. I filled with watercolors, staplers, stickers, notebooks, pencils...... all the stuff that MC loves to play school and office with, then wrapped with cellophane and topped with a bow.


  1. I am glad to hear your father-in-law is healing well.

    We made up something similar (without the painting) for our cross country road trip last summer. They are great for keeping kids entertained.
