I have a small kit I bought at a museum to do with The Little Bug, but I love the link for buying fabric. That looks like a lot of fun to play with!

Really, none. When I put on a size A the cups just cave in a bit on there own. Yes, it is embarrassing a little but it is what it is. Half the time I go without a bra at all but that can lead to some awkward moments. Anyway, any suggestions for a bra that will give a little something without looking fake (or concave)?

I used to work at a preschool and I can just imagine how excited our preschools would have been to play in somelike like that. We just used regular sprinklers for them to run through… now I realize we were very outdated! lol.

(reality with little children is a bit different, but dreaming about it is almost as good…)

We have a new baby in the house and getting dinner on the table at a reasonable hour is a challenge. When there was just one kid, husband and I could have dinner late, but that won’t work now that we have a 4-year old. And, I don’t know what I will do when I go back to work (arriving home at 6 PM) and husband works evenings! Thanks for any advice!

Seeing as I only knew how to do the cyanotype part and not the sewing part, it never happened. Also, making the fabric was a bit difficult… there were lots of inconsistencies. I just might buy some fabric from Blue Sunprint. So cool.

This certainly does mean aquamarine seas and pooka shells, but we’ve also come very close to be gored by a bull with (apparently) testes the size of my head and the odd raging wild boar. Apparently this is what happens when you go native.

I probably turn it on three times a week!

We should build one of those to cool off our kiddos!

Or are you purely practical and just have your husband pick up what’s needed or grab the first thing you see? Sometimes design sense is so much a part of one that it becomes part of one’s choices that others don’t even think about.
Thanks!

What age do you feel it is appropriate to start reading Harry Potter to kids?

Thanks!

What is a day like in your house — how do you handle the chores, homework, …the choas that errupts once the kids are home from school until bedtime? And also the clothes storage one is a great question. I too have bins and bins of clothes (and bought two more bins today, infact).

Thank you!
