one down one to go

God willing and the creek don't rise, I should have two napping crazies shortly. And then I should be able to get the Christmas crafting started.

On that note, I found the coolest site via SouleMama that I thought some of y'all might be interested in: Casey's Wood Products

They have natural wood blocks, balls, bowling pins, craft supplies, miniatures, and all kinds of stuff.

Warning: tons of links ahead. I don't want to post pics because I figure I only have maybe 2 more years before Jackson figures out the whole Santa gig. If he sees the pics here, believe me, he'll connect the dots on Christmas morning.

So, maybe 10 of these and a couple of these for a bowling set. I'm also thinking I'll sew up a checkerboard, tic tac toe board, and some other as yet unthought of board, plus a drawstring bag and some of these and these (depending on what I choose for game #3 - ideas?) for a portable board game set.

Check out these gorgeous beads - I think I'll get a bunch of them for a lacing bead set for K - such a lovely way to work in some fine motor practice. And they have all of these for creating little people.

I found this pattern for a drawstring play mat/storage bag thingie. I think it will go nicely with Legos or Kinex or something along those lines for one of J's presents.

Oh, I'm excited! Now, please send nap vibes toward Texas, won't you?


  1. that site is awesome! Such cool stuff. I love the tiny bees and beehive. And the fruits. And the stars. Oh, and the little chalkboards.

  2. also the wood rings. I wonder if there's some way you could make a ring toss game?

  3. Those wooden bowling pins are so cute! I bet Ruby could throw them really far.
