I have always loved the layered jars of cookies or brownies. So when we needed Valentine’s gifts for 4 awesome preschool teachers, we decided to give it a try. To add some San Francisco flair, we made Ghirardelli brownies in a jar. (Disclaimer: Those beautiful layered jars that you see on Pinterest were most definitely […]

  • Ida - beautiful! could you please let me know the name of teh font you used for “brownies”, it is gorgeous!ReplyCancel

    • kaleyann - Thanks Ida!

      The font I used for brownies is called Bombshell Pro.ReplyCancel

  • Tristina - Such a darling idea, but just a warning that the ingredients DO NOT fit in a standard, 16 oz mason jar. I made these for Valentine teacher gifts and ended up having the chocolate chips in a separate attached bag. Not nearly as cute.ReplyCancel

Wow, nothing like waiting until the last minute, as usual. :) We had quite a crafty afternoon today, between making valentines and teacher gifts, but it was so worth it because I love these little Valentines. After last year’s Dora Valentines, I really wanted to make something myself this year. But, of course, I was […]

Forget flowers and chocolates, give me some pink biscuits with fresh juice and berries and I am happy! A few weeks ago I started trying to make pink biscuits. The first few batches were complete failures. They still tasted good, but were far from the rosy pink biscuits that I was imagining. Strawberries didn’t have […]

I love looking at the awesome collections of photos that some photographers are able to capture of their children, like this or this.  It always inspires me to want to start something like that myself. But then I remember that my daughter hates having her picture taken. The camera comes out and she instantly covers […]

  • Staphanie - I bribe. With money!! :)ReplyCancel

  • courtney - I don’t take half the pictures you take but I have tried silly poses, and giving her different ways to stand or pose. Hands up, on the hips, or sticking out her bum is her all-time favorite. Abbi has a friend who LOVES to pose for the camera, so I remind her of her friend and say to pose like her. Or maybe try saying it is a picture to send to Daddy! You may have to set up deals with her, put away the camera for a week then be able to use it for a week…?? Kids are too darn smart! Good luck!ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie - Hmm. I try to take a pretty laid-back approach. The instant I try to force the perfect picture, my kids won’t cooperate. As much as I’d love to have magazine-worthy images, it’s just not realistic if I want to capture everyday moments. I hardly ever expect my kids to look at the camera; I just try to capture them doing their thing. I hope she becomes more willing. ;)ReplyCancel

  • Shayla - Such a cute shirt!! I need that!ReplyCancel

What a fun surprise to come home yesterday afternoon to a Goody Foods snack box on my front porch!  A few of you may know that I don’t eat snacks.  I eat 3 (rather large) meals a day, and between those meals, I just don’t eat.  So it is a little hard for me now with […]
