Our pattern goes like this. I make something. Josephine says "oooh is that for me?" I go "sure." If you'd like a turban ear warmer for yourself or your kiddos, check out my Etsy shop and I'll make it while she's in school πŸ˜‰

The age old struggle of wanting to read and knit at the same time. Has anyone figured this out? (I know there are audio books but I kinda love reading books) πŸ“š πŸ–€

A cowl to match the gorgeous sky today. Grateful for this weather because I needed something happy to focus on. Who else was up all night refreshing twitter? #canweimpeachnow? I'm also happy because the amazing @gantrygram gave me a beautiful shout out on her page πŸ’•

I made this Bernie cozy during the primaries but it's still relevant because I'm endlessly inspired by the fact that this man, despite losing, is still fighting for us. @berniesanders #berniesanders #feelthebern

My cards this year: Awesome @widycat_art card from my husband, super religious card from my mom, flowerpot card from Josephine and the following "mother" vertical poem from Henry:
"Miraculously sweet
Outstandingly kind
There for me
Hilarious
Educated
Raising us" 😒

Do yourself a a favor and go see Raisin (tix at @apacgram) and then get some drinks with friends no matter how badly you want to go to home and sleep. The show was so great, thank you @apacgram! πŸš•πŸΉπŸ“·: @singlegirlcookies

Just finished this set of mustard bow tie and hairclip for a set of boy and girl twin babies!! πŸ’›πŸ’› I love custom orders but more than anything I love babies. I mean who doesn't? I may or may not have just sobbed through Joseline's birth story on #lhhatl while making these. She slayed that natural birth πŸ™†
