My 15 month old is very enthusiastic (not surprisingly) about opening doors and has gotten very good at it :). There are some danger zones like the bathrooms/pantry, I would like to keep him away from. I looked at a few safety locks available online. Price apart, they weren't very easy to install without drilling … Continue reading DIY door safety lock for homes with multiple kids
Yaay! Its the end of October and halloween is around the corner. I love this festival when I get to dress up the kids in fun costumes and click loads of pictures. This is V's third halloween.

I've always wanted a little girl, someone I could play with, pamper, make pretty things for and share secrets with :-). There came a time when I was all about … Continue reading Fitted crib sheets
I just saw a post from a co-blogger Threads & Bobbins about her experiment with a handmade cloth book for a little one. This inspired me to write about mine too.
