Hi I'm Skyler, and I'm into crafts, sewing, baking, and other domestic intrigue!

A Whole New World

A Whole New World

You may think it’s a little over dramatic to claim Seattle is “a whole new world,” but it’s pretty crazy different from South Bend, Indiana. I’m also listening to the Aladdin soundtrack, so that may have something to do with it. Who can say… In any case, we are officially Seattlites (our whatever you call people who live in Seattle). We sold essentially all our belongings and headed west. Here are my esstute...

So I’ve been MIA for a while now. Things are happening. Some good, some less good, but I thought I’d finally share one of my projects I “finished” a while ago and let you know I’m still alive and everything! My mom is great. She does it all. If blogging was a thing when she was raising us, she could’ve been one of those famous mommy bloggers. Anyway, one of the things she was so sweet to do was to make photo...

Five Fact Friday

1. Snow. I will not miss the midwest winters. Or much else about the midwest, but especially not the winters. Brian and I spent 3 hours between us shoveling one morning this week and then this happened. The plow came through and splashed horrid heavy snow everywhere. So that’s what I did during nap time. Each shovel full weighed like 50lbs. 2. On the bright side, we had a couple days that were like 45 degrees! So Ada and I made a...

Five Fact Friday

1. On Sunday we went to Brian’s Great Grandmother’s 95th birthday party in Detroit. It was a 5 hour drive and we went there and back on the same day. It was a really long LONG time to be in the car, but Ada did great and it was fun meeting that side of Brian’s family (most of whom he’d never met either). Also, Ada got to meet her Great Great Grandmother and they got a 5 generation photo which is pretty amazing. I hope...

Five Fact Friday

1. So last week we went with some friends to see a play-thing called The Intergalactic Nemesis: Book 2 (yeah, we say part 1 too). It’s not really a play, but a “Live Action Graphic-Novel.” It’s like a comic book, an old-timey radio show, a piano and a box of weird crap had a baby. They have comic scenes projected on a screen, three actors, acting out all the parts, a foley artist who makes all the sound effects, and a...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Seriously. I have eaten too many of these cookies. I’ve made two batches in the last 48 hours and only 5 cookies remain. Granted, we did have some friends over last night, but it’s safe to say I ate WAY too many. They’re just so good you want to keep eating them long after your stomach is achingly full. They’re like a hybrid of the classic peanut butter blossoms my aunt makes and my mom’s chocolate chip recipe....
