Doll House from Ikea Expedit

Doll House from Ikea Expedit, Suzy Homeschooler (1)
This is one of those projects where the end result looks *nothing* like what I had originally set out to create.  Though I suppose if I want something to look a certain way, I should probably stop asking for LittleMan’s help making it because we will rarely agree. (more…)

Back To School Gifts: Lap Desks

A dear friend of mine is pregnant with her third child, and I couldn’t be happier for her. That said, I remember how difficult it was to entertain LittleMan quietly when SunnyGirl was still a newborn. So, in lieu of being geographically close enough to take the kids off her hands a few hours here and there, I’ve made these lap desks for her children.  I believe similar lap desks would also make a good gift to give a child going on a summer road trip or even just a nice back to school present.

When giving gifts to a family with siblings, I like to be as “even stevens” as possible, however with her daughter in early elementary school and her son a preschooler, there were some slight differences between the lap desks.
