Giraffes of a different kind...

One of my presents this holiday season was a MUJI cardboard giraffe kit. Made up of little parts, you match the numbers together and eventually you come up with a beautifully cardboard sculpted giraffe...actually two. It's fantastic! Not only was it fun to put together, it's wonderful to look at. It's perfect for the nursery. These animals could be left alone when put together, or you can paint them anyway you want. Whoever designed these little creatures is simply...genius!

Happy Holidays...

With the holidays right around the corner, and a baby coming in a few months, it's been difficult for me to get a blog post in. Yet, I managed to send out my holiday cards this year, even though I was trying to convince myself that I had no time, but they are sealed, stamped and delivered!

I'd like to just take the time to wish you all a very happy holiday! Here's to a healthy and amazing 2011!

Holiday cookies...

Every year, my mom, my sisters and I, reserve a day to bake holiday cookies! It's the perfect present to give to neighbors, family and friends. It literally takes all day, but we leave with yummy boxes of goodness to distribute to whomever we wish. Personally, fresh baked goods are the best way to say Happy Holidays. Yes, it was definitely a tiring day..not sure how bakers do it, but it was well worth it...especially since we had tons left over to bring home for ourselves! =)

1. the supplies
2. rolling out thumb cookies

Ingenuity at it's BEST!

After reading about this amazing clock on one of my fav blogs (, I had to share. The artist, Siren Elise Wilhelmson, developed "the 365 knitting measure and register time in a three dimensional form to visualise the otherwise invisible time factor that connects us all" Instead of using numbers, the clock knits the hours and days. How do you tell time? I don't think this clock is meant to be so literal. It's creates one stitch each half hour and a full circle is knitted by the end of the day. Once the year is over, the 365 Knitting Clock completes a scarf, measuring a little over 6 and a half feet long and a new ball of yarn takes over for the new year. Unfortunately, the clock isn't for sale, not that I would be able to afford it, I'm sure. It's simply ingenious!
