1. Abby Glassenberg’s adorable mice softies make me smile! She posted this sweet design on her blog few years ago where she offers a free pattern for all to enjoy. Awesome, right?
2. Shirley Link is a new girl detective series that my daughter is crazy about. This is an amazing series, my friends! Your kids will be hooked and you’ll feel realllllly good about it. Visit author Ben Zackheim’s blog for more details and information.
3. Oooooh! A Book Page Star Garland! I have a thing for crafts made from dilapidated books.
4. This lovely wreath ornament uses left-over bits of yarn and fiber. Easy and beautiful! via craftycrow
5. LOVE these prints. (love, love, love)

1. Lovely Jessica at Zakka Life posted this incredibly cute Packing Peanut Igloo craft last week, and I was instantly wild about it. The peanuts are fabulously re-purposed into an igloo that that lends itself to storytelling and play. We played with Insta-Snow at my daughter’s fifth birthday, and this adorable project would have fit in perfectly.
2. Homemade gift idea: herbal infused honey! Kristin of Banyan Moon Botanicals is a dear friend of mine and I trust all of her delicious and good-for-you creations.
3. Easy, Tiny Envelopes. LOVE!
4. Um, these homemade nesting dolls couldn’t be any cuter. And, they look so fun, satisfying, and simple to make.
5. These scenic stamp sets from Yellow Owl Workshop make so happy. Don’t you think these would make wonderful holiday gifts for kids who love to write letters? Add some blank cards and a nice pen and it would make a beautiful set!
What has made you smile this week?
