Getting Ready to say Bye Bye

We leave for India in a week. I will probably be slow in posting. Today I'm showing a little bit the end-of-the-year gift for my son's First Grade teacher that I am assembling, the idea shared Lynne and Melissa in this amazing post. When it comes to children's art you can never go wrong...

Savoury Semolina Cake

Description by Anjum Anand:
This savoury cake is spongy, crispy on the edges and replete with the textures of the vegetables. It is light and satisfying, easy to make and takes care of itself in the oven.

Recipe Here.


We received a wonderful package with a lovely handmade shirt in the mail yesterday. My daughter absolutely LOVES the pockets! Made by the talented wendybirdie on etsy.

Perfect Day

You know how some days go like clockwork? Well, yesterday we went kayaking in the morning, had a picnic lunch in the mangroves, came back exhausted, and while the kids played quietly downstairs I opened my factory and churned out 6 boo boo packs! I usually get bored making the same thing over and over again but somehow this was very satisfying. I think it's because I managed to finish what I started, and that's rare with 2 kiddies on the weekend.

Lemonade on the Steps... always more fun with a friend.

Wednesday, May 13, 2009


Often people write us to ask for custom images for their magazine or blog. This time we had to choose two of our favorite greeting cards to shoot. I really enjoy doing this because it reconnects me with the things I have made, and I look at them lovingly and proudly again.

Last night as I was cuddling with my daughter at bedtime, this was the conversation:

Anya: Why are you smelling me, Mama?
Me: Because you smell so yummy and delicious, I just want to eat you up.
Anya: Sniff sniff sniff (smelling my cheek)...
Me: What do I smell like?
Anya: (pause) Dirt. And sand, and fish and sugar.

Happy Mother's Day!

Garden Soft Book

Hooray! A new soft book is ready. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out, especially because of the amazing vintage silk fabric that I found, which is perfect for the garden collection. I am thinking of offering two versions on etsy, one made, and one as a kit to make your own. I had mentioned this before, and got a pretty good response, so if you would like to make your own soft book using a kit I prepared, leave a comment, and I will ask my little one to pick 3 names out. Have a great week!
