Hello Again!

Well, it’s been THREE years since I have posted anything on this site. I swear, it is not for lack of me working on projects.

As I look through my old posts, I realize that I did not post photos on some of our finished projects. I will start there. I hope that you don’t mind me bombarding you with a bunch of photos in the coming days. I’m actually on a tight deadline to get this blog updated!

After years of LittlePinkToolbox discussions at work, one of my favorite projects is going to be published in Hartford Magazine this month. Our magazine editor, Nancy Schoeffler, included my blog’s website in the article. Since the magazine is scheduled to be shipped to our office tomorrow, I guess I have less than 24 hours to get moving…

 

 

Patchy Backpacks

I know, I’m probably the worst blogger on earth. And I know, this is the worst post ever to come back with after 4 months off! (BTW, it’s not that I haven’t been doing anything. The camper is done, and the house in NH is almost done…so stayed tuned for some fun pics and projects coming up!).

So I’ve never done patches before. But this year the boys started to give me their opinions on their backpacks, yikes! I shouldn’t have asked them WHICH Pottery Barn Kids one that they wanted, because they didn’t want any of them! What? Who doesn’t want a perfectly monogrammed Pottery Barn Kids backpack? Not even the Star Wars ones, with all the matching containers??? OMG! NOOOOOOO!&%$%&$@!# Eli wanted Deadpool. Nolan wanted Pokémon. Sigh. So a quick trip to ebay for a $5 patch allowed us both (probably more me) to get what we wanted. And they loved them! So, iron-on patches are totally my new favorite thing.

Jameson’s GO Desk

2

Well, it’s been two months since I’ve posted anything. But that’s NOT because I/we haven’t been doing anything. I’m just too tired at night to write a blog. We’ve been in NH almost every weekend, working and enjoying. It’s a slow process since we can only go on weekends, and mainly only work with the kids are sleeping. But it’s looking great, and I’ll post some pictures soon.

Jameson had been asking for months for a desk for his GO office. Once he took measurements, I whipped it out pretty fast. As you can tell from the photos, it didn’t really look all that great until Jameson put the finishing touches on it! It turned out to be so big that we had to rent a UHaul to get it to his space, thanks to Cheshire for helping J unload it.
