Monday Moments

I recently read that to get yourself into the blogging habit you should have "theme" days. A post that you don't have to think about (or in my case, craft your butt off for) once a week. I figured, what better day than Monday, the start of the average person's work week, to remind myself that I need to blog...and that in order to blog, I need to accomplish something to blog about.

I started this blog by request of a few friends who loved the things that I made and wanted to be able to see them all in one place. However, more people than my friends are reading this now, and I thought I'd use this one day a week to give those folks a small window into who I am.

So, I give you the first ever "Monday Moment" a photo from the week past and a little peek into the moments that happen when I'm not creating.

This is my son, Gabe. I love this picture. I love how every time I look at it I am reminded of the way he just can't get the hang of a spoon. The way he treats his little shovel like a giant fork and stabs the sand, concentrating with all his might on getting just a few grains into the bucket.

I love how I know looking at it that next year I'll be wondering when, exactly he figured out how to use a spoon, when he got to be such a big boy. I know this, because the big boy in last year's photos, crawling through the waves on a very similar Lake Michigan beach, seems impossibly tiny now.


  1. Awww...

    My mailbox overflows every day with pamphlets and advertising for every college I've ever heard of, and then some...every time I take them out of the box my heart breaks a little...all I can see is this little giggling toddler, sitting on my foot with her arms wrapped around my calf, smiling up at me, begging for a ride.

  2. he just keeps getting more gorgeous! and what's up with him being such a big boy now? wasn't he just born like...yesterday???
