What, you may ask, is a Tutu Hairtie?  Well, it is very simple and very easy to make.  In today's video, Sophie shows you how to add fleece or ribbon to a common elastic hair tie.  The result is a fabulous handmade "scrunchie", or a bracelet, or even a "tutu" for your doll.

The other day while walking through this cute little neighborhood in San Francisco I spied this adorable corner store that had been turned into an art studio for kids.  In the window I saw the coolest project!  They had taken old CD cases and turned them into miniature bean gardens.  It was crazy, here were these beanstalks, 2 feet tall, growing out of the top of the cd case.

A lot of people think of Easter and Christmas as holidays for children. But, that doesn’t mean we adults can’t have fun too!  

Scott and I have a dear friend who hosts a very grown up Easter brunch every year. She sets a beautiful table, cooks an amazing meal, and lets me provide the entertainment.
