Other Cool Stuff

I‘ve never featured grown-up clothing here. But this was just too fun not to post. For about a year now, I’ve been coveting these knee high boots by Stuart Weitzman: Stuart Weitzman – 50/50 (Black Nappa) – Footwear They are GORGEOUS – AND, AND, AND! They are leather up the front and stretchy down the […]

I was a book nerd as a kid. Voracious reader. Some of my very best memories of childhood are afternoons and evenings spent combing the shelves of the public library. I can still close my eyes and see my first library card and the manila sleeve it fit into for safekeeping. And I LOVED finding […]

So, I was poking around on Etsy earlier. As usual. And I decided to go through my “Favorites” folder and clean it up a little. And I came across John W. Golden’s Etsy shop. I had bookmarked it ages ago when I started thinking about what to do for my 2 1/2 year old twin […]

Confession: I didn’t wear any of my babies. With the first two, slings weren’t yet on the mom-to-be radar in my little corner of the Midwest. And the second two were twins – so I was a bit overwhelmed with life and couldn’t imagine even trying to wear either of them. But I can completely […]

Mom Calling Cards on Etsy

After I quit my full-time lawyering job several years ago (after kids one and two but before kids three and four), I often found myself at a loss when meeting someone new. It always seemed like the appropriate time to exchange business cards with contact information. But I didn’t have a business. And the only […]

I‘ve been remiss. I’ve been swamped with other work and kids and life and stuff. I have had a little time for networking 140 characters at a time over on Twitter. Check us out at The coolest thing about Twitter is discovering tens, dozens, twenties, hundreds of new, cool products and businesses.  And I […]

Sassy Books: Flotsam by David Wiesner

in Other Cool Stuff,Uncategorized

Now, I know this book isn’t brand new. It was published in 2006 and won a Caldecott Medal in 2007. But my first-grader and kindergartner just discovered it in the library. My daughter checked it out last week, returned it on Tuesday. It came home in my first-grader’s backpack on Thursday. Both voracious new readers, […]
