more peeks and changing clothes

{more random peeks into The Things We Do}

Hi and THANK YOU everyone for the wonderful feedback on my little indie parenting book! My kids keep feeding volumes of new material my way that I'll have to hand write in my own copy. Six year old asked yesterday in all seriousness if she could have a vending machine in her bedroom ;)

Be not alarmed if you see a flurry of activity going on with my header and sidebar --  my blog hadn't changed clothes for almost two years and it was starting to stink, digitally speaking. I'll be updating my favorite art/craft blog links over the next few weeks, so if you'd like me to include yours, just let me know!

You are a whizzkid with words, could read them forever- so happy I am getting my own copy. Yay!

What a fantastic idea!! Your special 'word designs' are so great, cool, spot on!! You should do really well with this little book :)

Sarah said...

This is really good Aimee! I particularly like the one about you not flinching at the words 'some assembly required'!

As a mother of older kids - I read what you write and look back with a certain sense of uncertain nostalgia. So wonderful and creative!

Love the simplicity of your new blog 'look'!

JodyC said...

Oh Aimee. As always, your written thoughts make me smile. My oldest is 18 now, I wish I had had your book when all 4 were toddlers. I would have felt normal. :)

Daisy Yellow said...

I love when the glimpses of your indie parenting tome remind me of something that I'd forgotten about parenting. Today, I remembered without fondness the year I over-volunteered at school. Excited to see you re-decorating your bloggie world. Fun to shake things up.
