    I have a family member who used paint samples in a baby gift for us. She bought three different outfits and coordinated the samples to match the outfits, then made them into little cards marked with things like “Day at Home” or “At the Park.” Cool idea.

    You continue to blow me away with how you find all of these wonderful resources. It’s so much work…so I hope you feel how appreciative we all are. I’m still checking in each day, even if you only here me speak up once in a while. I think I’m overwhelmed with how much goodness there is out there, that I’m often left speechless.
    You’re so generous with all you share :)
