Memorial Day is Extra Special This Year

Memorial Day is a special day each year because we get to honor those who have fought to keep our country free. It's a time to reflect upon our citizenship, and to appreciate this wonderful country that we live in.

This year, it has another special meaning to my family. Today is also my grandmother's 92nd birthday! I am her first grandchild, and gave her the first great-grandchildren. My grandma and I have birthdays that are only 5 days apart, so in my family we have always had joint birthday celebrations. But, since she turned 90, we have made it a point to celebrate her birthday all by itself every year. My birthday gets overlooked most of the time, but I have lots more birthdays to celebrate so I won't complain.

Here in sunny Southern California the sun is out, the weather is getting warmer, and school is almost out! That can only mean one thing: Summer is almost here!!! 

What better way to ring in the new season than with a big party!? 

No Bake Sunbutter Cookie Bar Recipe

For those of you who are new here, welcome! I share a lot of food recipes here on my blog in the hopes that it will help others out there like us. My oldest son is allergic to dairy, eggs, and peanuts. It's been an adventure for sure figuring out how to keep him safe, and we are constantly experimenting with new recipes to try and find good ones that work for him!

This recipe is an adaptation from a delicious recipe I got from a friend when my husband and I were newlyweds. I had never heard of no bake cookies until then... I must have been living under a rock or something.... but one try and I was hooked! So, I took that recipe and have adapted it so that it's safe for my little guy (and my family) to eat.


To all the women out there ...

... you are all a mom in one way or another. Today is a day for you to celebrate the great person you are.
Mom's (and mother figures) make the world go 'round. You wipe our tears and kiss our boo-boos. You are the first to offer to help (even when we think we don't need it). You comfort us when we get scare, nervous, or anxious. You are our biggest supporter.

You make the best food and give the best hugs! You love us the most, and we love you right back! Happy Mother's Day!

From our family to yours!

How Do We Make Our T-Shirts? Screen Printing vs. DTG

If you're on our mailing list, or if you've visited our blog lately, you've seen our new line of t-shirts. We are so excited about these! Most of us are crafters, love to DIY, or have kids/grandkids. We know that all of those things require comfy, functional, easy to care for clothing. There is nothing worse than trying to chase kiddos around while making sure your top isn't too low in the front, or that it isn't riding up on the sides while baby wearing. Been there, done that!

When we decided to create our small clothing line, we kept all those things in mind. As a mom and a crafter myself, I wanted to make sure that our shirts were soft and comfortable to wear, would stand the test of time, and would be easy to wash.

Guess what!?! I found the perfect process to make the perfect tees! DTG (direct to garment printing). Wait.. you haven't heard of it? Okay, let me explain.

New Graphic Tees - Just in Time for Mother's Day!

Introducing our new line of t-shirts! Yep... we have created one of a kind tees just for you! What makes our tees better than the million other tees out there? Well, I'm glad you asked...

Our graphic tees were handpicked for a few reasons:

  • we love the soft, comfy fabric. We hunted for the perfect fabric make-up and finally found it! 
  • we love the fit. Our tees are a unisex cut which means they are loose fitting and perfect for chasing toddlers around or sitting in endless carpool lines for after school pick up. 
  • we love our process. Each tee is custom made for YOU. You get the design and the color you want, not just whatever is available. 
  • we love our printer. We work with a printer that digitally prints our designs into the fabric fibers of our tees. This means the design is perfect every time. It won't crack or fade. 
  • we love that it's easy. Our printing process means that you don't have to take any special care in washing your tees. They are washing machine and dryer friendly. It doesn't get any easier than that! 

Here's a peek at a few of our favorites from the collection ...

Tell me I'm not the only one that creates those awkward moments in conversation... no? Just me... o-kay then ...
