  • “Heartbeat Brooklyn”: 11 Years Old!

    Happy 2015! This year marks 11 years since my two murals went up on 12th Street and 2nd Avenue in Brooklyn. Up until now, I hadn’t taken my kids to go see them because it wouldn’t really have meant all that much to them, but now that they’re nearly 4 and 6.5 years old, I […]

  • 2014 Halloween Review

    Halloween is over and thanks to things like elections, aggressive holiday merchandising and why-the-hell-is-it-so-cold-already weather, this post seems impossibly passé. But because every now and then I love being exuberantly belligerent, I shall charge on, write and post this bad boy because, it was ONLY ONE FLAMING WEEK AGO. So, for those of you remotely […]

  • Nancy Zieman Blog Tour Giveaway Winners!!

    Ladies and gentlemen, I’m thrilled to share with you our high-security winner selection process that took place just moments ago… *insert dramatic drum roll for added adrenaline rush* The Bub and Mister Baby Pants carved out precious time in their action-packed lives to gather in secret by our backyard fence to pick winners of my […]

  • Happy Valentine’s Day!

    What did I do this morning, after waking up to my wonderful husband’s sweet gifts for the children and me?  Well, after drinking my morning coffee, I realized that I needed to get on with some sort of gifts for everyone because I completely waited until the last minute. Let me say that I really […]

  • The Giving Season

    With a lot going on at the moment, it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that a full workload doesn’t quite stop me from taking on MORE stuff to do. I’m crazy like that. So when I went into The Bub’s school the other morning, just minding my own business admiring […]

  • Remaking a Hat

    Yeah, so my morning began with being abruptly woken up by the shrill screams of betrayal and discontent. My blurry dry eyeballs adjusted to the trauma of sleep interruption and I walked like a zombie in an old-lady cardigan downstairs to find out what crime had been committed. Welcome to my morning. I arrived on […]

  • Jean Knee Power ACTIVATE!

    I think clothing manufacturers giddily laugh their greedy little heads off knowing that a pair of hole-y knees in otherwise perfectly good pants will surely yield more pant sales. Well, that’s just rude. Kids are going to wear and tear up their clothing anyway, we know. Got it. Understood. But we also know that inevitably […]

  • First Day of School: WOOT!

    Well, today was the first day back to school here and for our household anyway, it was a total success! No tears, no grumbling, no sour anything of any kind! Only joy and eagerness to see friends and get straight into that wonderful classroom. So much so, in fact, that I only managed to get […]

  • DIY Subway Wall Art

    A year or so ago, after Spoonflower unveiled a custom decal printing option, I made up an entire alphabet based on the same look the NYC MTA subway system has. Why? Uh, hello, because my children love trains and love the subway, of course. Knowing we would eventually move, I stuck them up temporarily in […]
