This Week

School vacations are perfectly timed. Just as the daily process starts to get weary, a chance to change up the routine saves the day. And, though we did we did not escape to the mountains, or go anywhere for longer than a day, we took the opportunity to flip the days on end. There were a couple of days the girls never got out of their pjs, there was a trip to the Museum of Science, and a ride to Cape Cod. We had junk food for breakfast one morning, and a breakfast with the works the next. The girls have been staying up late, watching the Olympics with us, and cheering on team USA (we are serious Olympics geeks).

The calendar for this week was blank—not a single note or appointment scribbled down. It's only natural that a week like this would spawn a few creative undertakings. Take a peek into our house this week:

A set of custom pins, nearing completion (more on this soon)

Thumb print art, with Ed Emberley's Great Thumbprint Drawing Book.

A stash-busting work in progress

And a bedroom makeover, apparently

But we're not done yet. We will be squeezing as much as we can into the final few days before we return to the grind. What have you been up to?


  1. Those custom pins look so cute! And the thumbprint book sounds great. I have never heard of it.

  2. Sound like a wonderful time spent with your girls on their time off. Got your valentine yesterday. Do you make your own handcut stamps? I love them, especially that chicken up there.


  3. Looks like a fantastic way to enjoy the holidays - we were much the same until this weekend when we drove for hours in the snow to sight see and Party in London. A really lovely time but exhausting - we could do with another holiday now :)

  4. Love this entry about your week! The pins are gorgeous!
