Jacinda and Jaime are Coming to Seattle’s Land of Nod!

Land of Nod Pretty Prudent Home

We are thrilled to announce that next week we are coming to see y’all in sunny Seattle for the first stop on our Pretty Prudent Home book tour! On Thursday, May 14th we will be signing books and teaching a lil’ gold leaf workshop at Land of Nod’s University Village location in Seattle from 7-9pm. We are excited to see you, see each other, and drool over all the Land of Nod goodness for Spring. At Pretty Prudent we have always loved working with our friends at Land of Nod so when we were writing Pretty Prudent Home, we begged Land of Nod Creative Director, Danielle Kurtz, to contribute a brilliant tip list about Organizing Kid’s Toys. It’s seriously awesome. Speaking of which, I better go back for a refresher course, but first crafting. Let’s meet up in Seattle for some fun! RSVP HERE to reserve your spot for the workshop.

DIY Flower Napkin Rings

DIY-Flower-Napkin-Rings

Put flowers on the table all year round with these reusable DIY Flower Napkin Rings.  I’ve made napkin rings before with real flowers, and while they are gorgeous, their beauty is fleeting, which is why I decided to use fake flowers this time. They take about five whole minutes to make and turn out so pretty for spring.

Little Forager Skirt Tutorial

Little

I have been babysitting quite the little forager lately. She loves to spend the afternoons out in the garden collecting flowers, sticks, and pretty much anything else she can find (yesterday I found a half eaten carrot and pebbles she snuck into my back pocket). I was inspired by her to make this sweet Little Forager Skirt. It does not require a pattern, and has a flat front with elastic back, so it’s easy to get on and off your little one.

Check out the complete tutorial for the Little Forager Skirt after the jump…
