I’m taking stock of the yarn and yarn adjacent companies who are standing against systematic racism and white supremacy. I will be posting links to the statements these companies have made. If you find any that I’ve missed, please reply with those links.

PLEASE – Contact your favorite companies who are NOT saying anything and tell them to add their voices. Then give some love to the companies who are!

Stand with small!! We may be smack in the thick of social distancing, but we are all joining together in so many digital ways. Now more than ever people are supporting small businesses with online options. Etsy provides a way for artists to sell their creations without any physical interaction. I’ve picked out some Etsy products that I think you will love. So take a look and support the little guy!

Astronomy Fluxx – so much outer space family fun & even some education!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Astronomy Fluxx is quickly becoming a favorite here At Home. Our budding astronaut, Vada, wants to play it all the time and it’s so fun that I almost always say yes. We’ve been having a blast playing, and we have all learned some interesting facts and dates from this game. Considering we are a family of outer space nerds, that’s saying a lot!

Middle School beginnings and more to come – Selfie Sunday

Middle school beginnings can be so rough, but I am super happy to say the twins are handling it like champs! They have great friends and great attitudes. We’ve had some bumps that are typical at their age, but we are working through them. Every night ends with “I love you”, and every morning starts with “good morning.” So I call that a win.

Family Bonds are amazing. Nearly two years ago some dear friends of mine grew their family by bringing an amazing baby girl home from the hospital and becoming her foster parents. A couple week ago they were finally able to adopt her. Facebook immediately blew up with pictures and stories of their loving family. So today I thought I would celebrate a bit more by sharing some free crochet patterns that show off family bonds.
