Musings From My Week

Like I said yesterday, this week has been a whirlwind of fun.  Here's a glimpse of some of the things that have kept me busy:

Birthday parties!

Awesome mail.  :)

Almost breaking my leg while standing on a piano bench to reach the tiniest nesting doll off the top shelf... you know, to make this: 
Totally worth it.  ;)

More birthday fun... (Erin's photo)

Buttons!!!  (Will's photo)

Friend time at a soda fountain.

Customizing tough Blythes and hanging out.  :)

Playing Blythes with the best pal ever... (Erin or Will... I don't even know...)

Absolutely great days. (Will's photo)

All in all, I'd say I liked this week.  If you haven't gotten your swap partner, don't be sad.  I promise it is coming.  I finally got through all of my Wednesday emails around 2 am and had to get some sleep.  If you have gotten your partner, please get in contact with them, and feel free to chit chat.  This is gonna be a lot of fun!!!  Happy Saturday!  xoxo Katie


  1. I love your blog! It's so pretty. I love your outfit posts. I missed the deadline for the craft swap but if you need an extra person, I'm available. If not, I'll catch it the next time around!


  2. Go ahead and email your request! I think one more couldn't hurt. ;))

  3. That little russian doll necklace is SUCH a good idea! Where did you get the little dome from?

  4. aww what a great week! I haven't had a blythe day is sooo long! That Russian Nesting doll in the necklace is adorable!!

  5. Oh my god the buttons! I can totally relate to that. But I've moved since my last buttons in giant buckets excursion, I must find a new source!

  6. I emailed you about the craft swap on Monday...did I get lost in all the email mayhem?

  7. your daughter is so adorable... her face in the photo looking at buttons kills me!

    p.s. i like the new photo of you up top and on the right too! pretty! <3

  8. Alix don't worry, I think I sent her an email the same day, the first day she posted the email, and I haven't heard back yet either.

    We just have to be patient :). I know it's hard, haha. She's just not done yet.

    I'm excited about the swap though, can't wait to get my partner!

  9. Yes! And, I just cleaned out my spam folder which held lots and lots of missing swap entries, so I will definitely be sending out lots more soon. <3

  10. Your stuff is soooo cute and your family looks SOOO cute and fun. :)

  11. You're a trooper! If i could I'd totally make you a cup of tea and yell out encouraging things at you as you go through your inbox ;)

  12. your nesting doll necklace is SO cool! what genius idea.

  13. I LOVE buttons. I have no idea what I need so many for... But I still keep collecting. My kids like to play with them - I'll make that the excuse!

    Your blog is pretty. Such great photos. Only just found it in the last couple of weeks.

    I've never been in a swap before... what happens? I am too late to be involved - plus I am in Australia...
