we’re about to tackle the whole shoelace tying thing, here! my son is in his first year of school and i feel like his fine motor skills are up to the task. but can i actually remember to spend a few minutes a day practicing with him? no. so i’ve made an achievement chart to make sure we BOTH put some work into learning to tie laces. each day they practice you could stamp, or add a sticker and hopefully by the end of the cart they’re a lace tying fiend and can be rewarded with a snazzy new pair of laces or in our case a non-velcro pair of shoes for school!
are your small people ready to start tying knots and making bunny ears? grab the printable chart at the link below
for $2.00 AUD
please note: i do not offer tech support, or customization on printables.
i hope this helps your peeps feets! let me know of any great tips for beginner lace tying in the comments below, maybe we can work through this together.
did you miss something swank in sept? here is my creme de la creme:
take a tour of my living and dining room
check out the rad color pop diary i got
look back on a week in my life
we never did solve the mystery of the beautiful stranger
and saving cake til last: how we threw a willy wonka party and how you can too!
i’ve been digging on the mainstream hippy vibe of japanese chalkware lately. is chalkware baked? i don’t know, but these guys are – 6 of them can’t even keep their eyes open!
hold the raindrops on roses, strike the whiskers on kittens: THESE are a few of my favorite things… on etsy, currently.

its been ages since i did a vintage book post, so let’s get back to it with a vengeance! BAM! take a look at this psychedelic beauty gifted to me by the generous and glamorous deb
little puff is lonely, so it jumps the tracks in search of someone who will hang out with it. the farm animals are not impressed.
little puff causes traffic chaos in the town, and gets ticketed by the policeman.
so little puff heads off into the zoo…
the children call for little puff to take them for rides, and at last little puff has found a place to belong.
i think it goes without saying, that this is the best train that has ever existed! thanks deb, and thank you sid jordan for these fabulous illustrations.
