Pinterest Project: Map of Our Life

As you can see I’m posting a lot because Litte Man is asleep, and I’m not utterly exhausted tonight.  Earlier in the Fall, I saw a pin that I really liked and after spending more money than I would have liked to on the frame (probably $20-$30) I made sure to make the rest of…

Pinterest Project: Child’s Birth Time Clock

I’m sure most people have seen the wall of clocks stopped at times that hold importance in your life. I have had this pin seared into my mind.  I knew that I would want to do this for the time that Litte Man was born.  I don’t really need a reminder of the time because…
