They say that "necessity is the mother of invention." Now that our kids outnumber my husband and me, one of the necessities in my life is some semblance of order. I can deal with toys and spills and what have you, but dirty socks in random places make me just a little bit bonkers. Especially since they end up hidden in bizarre locations and miss the laundry hamper entirely, leading to the boys never having any matching socks no matter how many times we do laundry (please tell me I'm not the only one this happens to). Since I find that my kids respond well to making cleanup fun, I took some inspiration from my Monster Toy Bag and created this cute and hungry hanging basket that we've dubbed "The Sock Monster."
I don't think that I'll ever stop being excited about getting something in the mail. Even when you know exactly what's inside of it, there's just something about the anticipation of waiting for a package to arrive that makes it feel like an unexpected gift. (A box, for me? You shouldn't have.) And of all the things you can order, I think the best kind of delivery has to be yarn mail. So when the kit for this gorgeous clutch from We Are Knitters showed up on my porch, I couldn't wait to get started on it. A very merry unbirthday to me!
