Having said that, I DO want to share some Little Happies with you:
My friend, Kirsten, is a seamstress - she's talented enough to make me want to give up my hopes of learning to sew, and just pay her to whip up cute things for me. I figure if I watch her three kiddos, she can focus on sewing - is that a fair trade off?
Anyway, she's been plotting to fix up her playroom, and found a tutorial on JC Handmade for these precious and handy wall tote bags.
Kirsten is going with a navy and orange color scheme - here's her wall totes
I loved hers so much, I sent out some not-too-subtle hints about making one for Avery, and whadd'ya know? A few days later I was presented with our own little kidlet tote! Isn't the liner fabric adorable? And the rick-rack - so sweet!
On another Happy note, I'm so excited to announce that MLHP is undergoing a facelift as we speak! You all know I've been hemming and hawing about redesigning this blog. I seriously considered taking on the task myself, but quickly realized this would be My Little OLD Place before I mastered the kind of graphic design skills I would need to make my blog dreams come true. So, I turned the task over to a lovely woman and graphic designer named Carrie. She's working through the color schemes, fonts, buttons and widget-installs for me - and that's a VERY good thing! I'll keep ya posted so you'll know when to expect things to look a bit more Happy 'round here!
