A Colorful Thanksgiving

I just bought myself a new box of crayons yesterday. I could not resist opening the box in the store to take my first big sniff. I can't wait to use them...the box I got has both a silver and a gold crayon! I found these cute Thanksgiving coloring pages that you can print from your computer. Yeah! Inner-child, here I come!

Unbreakable Christmas

I found these on Etsy today. They are very cute, and perfect for the charlie brown tree I'm planning on decorating this year. These, along with some paper snowflakes, will ensure a beautiful and unbreakable holiday for Cutie Pie. What an inspiration.

Inspired by Walrus Studio, I wanted to post a few animal inspired designs for children. Elephants are my favorite animal to display in the home. They represent strength, solitude and bring good fortune.

So Super Sweet

A couple of years ago, I fell in love with these hats. I desperately wanted to get one for my hubby, but never did. I can't make one, due to my total lack of knitting/crocheting talent. But, if anyone out there has mad skills, let this be of inspiration. Here is a tutorial I found.

Color Me Shocked!

Markers and furniture never looked so good together! At first, my instincts were to wince in pain for this beautiful sofa by Pamela Bell, filled with childish colorful markings. But, as I looked more, still in a bit of shock, it started to grow on me. How daring! How darling! Way to go, you creative Momma. Very inspiring, don't you think? It reminds me that there are no limits in decorating. Surround yourself with the things you love!

a puzzle and a maze.

photo via
Puzzles have always been so much fun for me. There is nothing like sitting down to put together a big puzzle on a rainy day, with a blanket and a cup of tea. I know, it sounds a bit "granny" style, but it really is the best. I am totally inspired to try my hand at making my very own. Here is how. It is tough, and requires tools, but it's a challenge I might accept.
I also have a special link, where you can generate your own maze. Sitting quietly with a maze in front of you is so very zen. Peace out my friends.

Free Monday!

Blah. Sounds like you've got a case of the Mondays. Do you like the movie Office Space? It is one of my favorites. Here are some fun quotes from the movie to read today.

This too will rid your case of the Mondays...It's a free printable calendar! Yeah. It is super cute and quirky, and perfect for hanging in your boring old cubicle. You can find it here. Have a great Monday!
