My husband and I are book hoarders - there, I said it. On the scale of things-to-hoard, though, I feel like books is at the top of the "socially acceptable" section. Needless to say, Hazel has a lot of books. I'm not even ashamed! But, her bookcase drives me nuts because the books are always sliding around since I don't want to put heavy, not-baby-friendly bookends in her room! I did a quick search on pinterest for some baby-safe book end ideas and there were surprisingly few options - and none that fit the cuteness bill for me!

No sharp edges, and it is only a teeny bit heavy, so even falling on a little one won't cause any major strife.
Here's my tutorial for the unicorn version - Just change up the ears and the face to make a multitude of different animals! I've included pictures of the cat and bunny versions I made at the end as well.

All you really need is a shirt and a sewing machine!
Another bit in the pseudo-segment “things in my life that happened before the blog but are worth noting” would be my maternity pictures! I had an image in my mind of a floaty dress and a meadow (pregnancy brain, maybe? Who knows), and somehow it totally came together! My friend Kelsey Atherton Photography made me feel like less of a bloated whale and even found a
Since I didn’t start this blog journey until my little was 7 months old, there are quite a few things that I have to share with you all from months past. This includes the sweetest newborn pictures you’ll ever see! (I might be slightly biased;)) My friend Kelsey Atherton Photography took these pictures for me when Hazel was one week old. I wanted a soft, natural look – and could not resist
I’ve decided to share things with you that I have and love, in the hopes you’ll find some new favorite things too! First up is my fawn design bag…I should say bags, because I have two colors!! I use my pink one (Fawn Design Blush) currently, but I originally bought the brown one (Fawn Design Brown) and love it JUST as much. I put it away safely to use for future kids (like maybe a
Hey there! My name is Kirstie. I'm here to jot down what it's like for us to make our way in the world - having fun on a budget, refashioning and DIY-ing our hearts out, pursuing business ventures, and raising a sweet babe in this crazy world. Join me for a slightly haphazard journaling of my little family and our pursuits and adventures!
