every year I set the birthday table with candles, funny wind-up toys,
Twizzlers, Cheez Doodles, and many photographs of the guest of honor.
Today is ELI's 19th (holy moley) Birthday.
Just now, I grabbed this collage off my bedroom wall..
contact sheets of Eli (almost three) posing.. or not.. for a portrait for Spark.
He brought his tambourine and honey stirrer.
David Caras took these photographs that I will forever cherish.
I remember that day like it was yesterday.
Happy 19th Year E!
This is easily one of my favorite gifts that I am giving this year.
I cannot take credit for this sweet idea, I found it onpinterestand ran with it.
I come from a long line of ice cream fans and it seemed perfectly perfecto for me.
I whipped up a strong batch of chocolate sauce and found
jars not TOO big ( butBIGenough) to fill.
Added assorted mini candies, gummies and chocolates, waffle bowls and cones.
Packed in a sturdy box and VOILA!
Sundae Box.. JUST ADD ICE CREAM ..YUM!

The Sewing Workshop last week required
lots of colorfully threaded sharp needles,
pattern for felt bird,
6 felt bird shapes X 14 sewers,
and a big box of band-aids (just in case). I was given two hand sewn felt birds last Christmas from my sweet friends Eli and Zoe. Their very clever mom Michelle set them up to stitch these beautiful ornaments... I have admired them ever since. 14 felt birds flew out of the studio with great big smiles on their beaks!
This felt bird pattern can be found at Purl Soho. Thanks E and Z. xo
Last week was a good time to get busy stacking, sorting, snipping and sifting for beehive ART boxes. Sam created a colorful assembly line that I couldn't resist sharing...the colors, textures, shapes and a whole lot of creative energy! What's inside the ART box is chock full of colored papers and tissues, note cards and matte board, sequins, yarn, ribbons, watercolor paints and glue, felt, pompoms and beads.
No two boxes are exactly alike! Available at the studio $20.00 Ready to ship $27.00
Just taking this bkfst tray up to my late sleeper, Georgia P.

and steaming cocoa with the favorite Jet- Puffed Marshmallows (her request).
Life is SWEET!
