We’re gearing up for Ellie’s second birthday around here. I’ve been trying to finish up on some special decorations.
I bought these little wooden horses in hopes of making a carousel centerpiece. I’m not sure how it will all come out or even if it will at all, but I’ve been busy sanding, and sketching designs. I also started using my wood burner I got for my birthday. It’s going to take lots of practice to get good, but it’s been fun, wood-burning the designs into these horses.
Next up is painting them and then figuring out how to make a carousel stand.
In other news, I’ve been rearranging areas…
Adding some sheep skin rugs to Ellie’s play areas to encourage play.
Getting my swap goodies all set to send out.
Reading about the beach and then visiting the beach.
Trying to get into the kitchen to cook some more (although, as you can see, a clingy toddler who just wants to dance, makes that difficult sometimes).
And someone had her very first licks of a lollipop (Daddy thankfully finished it).
But not before Mike the Peg Doll gets a lick.
I leave you with one of my favorite daily views….
Hope you are having a nice start to your week.
