Healing Newton

17 Dec

My heart was so heavy upon hearing the news of Sandy Hook.  All day I got a knot in my throat thinking about my daughter and how someone put in so much work and love and sleepless nights, and now they no longer have that sweet little thing to read stories to or kiss goodnight.  Then I saw the photos of these beautiful children and I can’t begin to process anything other than holding my baby as tears roll down my face.

Because of this tragedy we have decided to donate 10% of our sales to heal Newton, Ct and 10% of our sales to mental health in an effort to prevent this from ever occurring again.  We will also be sending out small green memorial pins to everyone who donates $5 through our Etsy shop.

Thankful Thursday

25 Oct

My favorite day of the week!  It’s Thankful Thursday with Mustache Mama.

My list of things I’m thankful for is overflowing.  I’m thankful that Texas is finally getting a cold front so the family can start wearing some of our knits.  It’s much more fun to wear our creations than to just look at them.  I’m thinking tonight I will be wearing the “Forever” Infinity Scarf, I adore it’s chunky texture.I’m SO very thankful that our adventure with gas drops worked and Baby T is both comfortable and sleeping right now.  That makes for one happy mama.  She went from a max sleeping time of 3 hours (but an average of 1 hour) to 6 whole hours last night!  My brain is actually able to process ideas, it’s pretty amazing if you ask me.  (note that my islander baby got tan skin, red hair, and blue eyes.  I’m thinking a future modeling career is in the works)

I’m thankful for such a creative partner.  I love to watch B create and love that we feed on each others creative energy.  I’m  currently knitting some really cute hats from some ideas he had.  I can’t wait to finish them so I can show them off.  B’s dad will be visiting us in just a few hours.  I’m not sure if he is more excited to show off the baby or our compost pile.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and has a huge list of thankfuls!
