You guys must have at least one little girl in your life that wears (or will wear) a size 4T-5T!
So as many of you know, I used to run a small handmade dress shop on Etsy (under GrowingUpwCharissa and minimooh). Charissa has long outgrown her love of wearing dresses, and I am finally ready to part with the remaining "originals". Instead of allowing them to occupy precious closet space in hopes that Charissa will relinquish her obsession with Hello Kitty shirts that are always 2 sizes too small, I'm going to give them away. To enter, you (or your minions) must submit a piece of 6x6 artwork to Rochester Contemporary Art Center (visit http://www.roco6x6.org/ for submission guidelines and form.) It is a unique (and free! minus shipping costs) opportunity to create something and have it displayed and up-for-sale at a real art gallery! So to enter:
1. Create a piece of 6x6 art.
2. Pack it up for shipping and then take a picture of the package.
3. Post your picture on my timeline, private message me the picture, or email me the picture.
4. Gain additional entries/chances by sharing this giveaway on FB and leave a comment here or on my FB page (http://www.facebook.com/mhjenniferho)letting me know that you did so.
Deadline is April 20th. The dresses pictured in the photo are the ones you will receive if you should win.
I will order all the entries via time stamp and use a random number generator to select.
Okay. That's it. :)
After much deliberation, the kids decided to be ninjas for Halloween. 'Tis a busy mother's dream come true with only belts and sword-sticks to make and easily re-wearable-store-bought hoodies, pants, and ski mask.
A menacing lot with a one-eyed bandit...
...an undercover model...
...and a mischievous charmer...
Fighting. It's a dangerous thing.
Especially when words are in play. So I made some guidelines for all to follow:
Good reminder. Even for the adults :) If only relationships were always this pleasant...
And if you're keen on making the felt flower wreath, here is a quick visual tutorial... just in time for my irregular "Try it Tuesdays" post:
There are quite a few, but the only blog-worthy one is our sectional!
Here, a year-long, slow and tedious transformation:
After having been abused with permanent marker and various kid-related accidents, the light-colored-hello-you-can-read-our-life-story-via-the-stains-micro-fiber cover had to go. And since the shape of the sectional was perfect for the space, I decided to recover it. DIY style.
After skinning it and removing the cushions... And taking a 10-minute moment of horrified silence "OMG, what have I just got myself into":
I've recovered our sectional 1.5 times. The first time, only half of it. And then I got tired and decided that a two-tone sectional was somewhat bearable.
Until it wasn't, and then I re-stripped the whole thing and did it all at once. Again. But this time also converting it into a tight-back sectional (versus loose cushions that doubled as rocks for fort building):
Cross-off under my "things to do before I die" list :p
Zoloft Cost, Aside from the sun-kissed tans acquired from walking along the beaches in style...
...feasting on corn dogs and cotton candy, going to Legoland and Disney Land, online buying Zoloft hcl, and everything else people do while on vacation in southern California... Effects of Zoloft,
...we procured a fourth child over the summer:
For those who do not know, this is my youngest sister, born my freshman year in college, online buy Zoloft without a prescription. We are 19 years apart. Doses Zoloft work,

Seriously, do all 12-year-olds have this much stuff?. And oh yeah, generic Zoloft, they are not particularly tidy.

And double as a family guest room.
With the existing furnishings in mind (a kelly green dresser and a sticker wallZoloft Cost, ), we decided to go with bold colors, starting with a faux, red headboard:
Here, a green dresser, a bulletin board, and what I like to call, a "wear again basket" - something I came up with when I was at my wit's end dealing with Charissa's constant change of outfits piling up in her closet floor. Basically, Zoloft pharmacy, a basket to throw articles of clothing that are barely worn, Zoloft brand name, or not "dirty enough" to warrant a washing. All my kids have one in their rooms. (I toss everything in the basket into the wash once a week, is Zoloft safe. Sure beats sniffing underwear and socks to determine what's clean and what's not!)
A desk with a red frame on the wall to define the space for her hanging collection of beaded figurines and objects:
And of course, About Zoloft, boxes to contain the clutter and chaos:
And mason jars for useful collectables:
To make use of the glass coffee table, I grabbed a whole bunch of $1 chunky bracelets from Michael's and glue-dotted them into formation as a way to contain and display her rock and fossil collections:
We also painted one wall a purplish blue and completed it all with a rolling library cart and wall hooks for hoodies and bags:
With a family of six to feed and clothe and four children's worth of stuff in school papers, music lessons, cheap Zoloft no rx, tennis lessons, swim lessons, ski lessons... my ability to multi-task, plan, and organize my time is definitely being put to the test. For sure, I do much better with juggling loads of activities than with performing basic functions on 2-hour sleep increments. So no complaints here :) Although now I feel like I have to go make new friends/connections... you know, with people experienced in raising tweens and teens.
