I'm saving a new mom-story for tomorrow, because today I want to dedicate this day to an incredible strong Mom ...at least once a week I make a stop on the internet to visit the astounding story and life of Nie ... Stephanie Aurora Clark Nielson, who a little over one year ago returned from an almost fatal plane crash ...
Stephanie, a mom of four and wife to Mr. Nielson writes her journal with so much love and is a great example for me ... her life brings it all in perspective for me, Thank You Stephanie and here's to another year of great recovery for you! ..irene..

Via Notes, Fawn&Forest's blog I discovered the amazing 'baby's first words letterpressed cards' by Alyson Beaton design ... the card help you to record your child's first words in a very unique way ... once recorded you can either store them in the beautiful box that comes with it or use the cards as wall-decoration!
When I searched the internet a bit more for Alyson Beaton, I ran into her website and a new project she recently started with KJ Bradley :: Grow-Book ... fantastic initiative about saving the environment and teaching your children with the help of this book ...

scrolling to one of new favorite blogs this morning, sweet sweet life from Amy and there I saw this great dollhouse Amy made with her kids using these instructions from Cookie Magazine. Amy couldn't have found better dolls for the house ... Charlie and Lola always make me laugh ... it's going to be a busy weekend for us, making handcarved stamps, making dollhouses :) nahhh won't be able to make it all, but I love showing these carft ideas with you! Thanks Amy.

An ABC of Birds and sooooo beautiful, I love to see how Yvonne framed it, but more important to finally discover the fantastic work and art blog from the fabulous artist Geninne (where have I been???) Via the Style-files I found Geninne's hand-carved-stamp-tutorial which I think you dear readers might like to see too right here ... it looks so easy, the way she explains it and what the result looks like, I definitely have to give it a try too.
