My new favorite book!

A couple of weeks ago I found a book on that I have been wanting for a long time. It is called "The Creative Family" by Amanda Blake Soule. She is the great mama mind behind another of my favorite blogs Check it out, you won't be sorry!

This book is full of so many great ideas to nuture and expand the imaginations of your family. Mr. Miller and I have loved some of the ideas that she shares. One of which was a simple pattern for a child's pair of pants. I used the idea to help with making my wool soakers. I made these cute woolies. Way too easy! Unfortunatley these are to small for Junior Mint so I will be putting them in the pile for my Hyenacart to be up and running soon!

In the time that I have been blessed to be at home since my unfortunate unemployment I have discovered so many things about me. I have also rediscovered some hidden talents and passions that we all seem to put aside for one reason or another in our lives. I am truly grateful for this time that I am getting in my life right now!


  1. Hi Maeghan! I was really inspired by the article in the paper and your blog...I moved here a little over a year ago for my past position as an Event Manager in the Hotel Industry and was laid off. I am a single mom and it has afforded me with time to spend with my 2 year old Skye. Unplanned of course. But, I found a really good school that I love and just alot of back to the basics type of life changes..I am going to try some of your recipies. Love the summer pie...

  2. Thanks Ivy! I am really honored to have touched your life in such a way. Isn't funny how when one door closes another opens. I am planning to be posting recipes on a weekly basis on Wednesdays. Take care and good luck, thanks for the support. Remember to cherish every moment with Skye!
