When I was at the sewing workshop at Whipstitch the other week, I met a wonderful gal named Tiffany.
She and I hit it off instantly and had a great time visiting throughout the day. Tiffany has been blogging for a year now… her blog anniversary is this week, in fact! Simply Modern Mom is a great resource for today’s mom. She does a great job describing what it’s all about, so I’ll let her do that in her intro! Tiffany has been gracious enough to visit the Southern Institute today and is bringing a great project with her! I’ll let her have the floor…
I’m Tiffany from Simply Modern Mom and I am so glad to be on SIDAC today. Jenny and I met three weeks ago at the Whipstitch gathering with Dana from Made. We had so much fun together that we vowed to keep in touch. Isn’t she wonderful? Anyway, my site, Simply Modern Mom is dedicated to simplifying the lives of modern moms all the while sharing with you tutorials and crafts I have made. I do a little bit of everything – share photo tutorials, make lists about anything and everything, give tips for parenting and the home and share fun products and websites that I know you will love. I hope you hop on over and visit me a bit at Simply Modern Mom!
We recently received some packages in the mail and had boxes around the house. Just as I was about to toss them, my girls decided to build forts out of them. Then Elle, my youngest, sat herself in the little box. I couldn’t believe she fit so perfectly in the box. I pushed her around in it and she yelled, “Vroom!” We got a little more creative and made box cars out of them.
If you are looking for boxes, hang out at Wal-Mart or other grocery stores late at night when they are stocking the shelves. Then ask for the empty boxes. Moving boxes will work too.
