Ukrainian painter Sasha Putrya was painting non-stop all her life, as if she knew it will be cut short.
She lived for 11 years, 6 of which she battled leukemia, leaving to the world over 2,300 of her unique pen drawings and watercolor paintings .

Sasha didn't study painting and, due to illness, couldn't even go to high school after attending classes for 1 year, yet somehow she managed to learn so many... Read more
Its not even a winter yet, but you can already spot babies and little kids in poofy jackets, knitted scarves and cute hats. It seems like parents can't wait to bundle up their bundle of joy.

The Easter basket would be brimming full of delectable chocolates and candies and our family would get together in celebration.

Now that I have my own two... Read more
I have been struggling with what to buy my two boys this year. The reality is that I don't want to clutter my house up with "things" just because it is Christmas. I want them to understand the true meaning as well as give them gifts that are meaningful and quality. Handmade gift ideas are perfect for kids and generally end up being some of our kids favorite things!

Here is a round-up of my... Read more
We are in the Thanksgiving mood around this house! Not only have we busted out the Christmas music, but we are head over heels into nature walks. The weather is constantly changing in North Carolina, but lately it has been mild enough to take walks with a light jacket. My two year old loves to pick up things along the way which sparked this simple but fun craft idea today.

We have several pine trees as well... Read more
There are a few things that I will never forget about my own childhood. One of those things was creating and being crafty with my mother. She always had a room full of fun things that I could use (old buttons, colorful paper, yarn, glue, etc).
