Warm hearts and hands

Despite high afternoon temperatures, the mornings are a bit chilly here now. Over the weekend, I made the girls each a set of handwarmers—little, heart-shaped packages filled with jasmine rice.  After just a minute in the microwave, these sweet little things snuggle into jacket pockets to keep my sweet little girls warm. Ava reports they’re still a bit toasty come recess . . . too bad it’s 60 degrees outside by then!

    Is this from Pinterest? The Quilted Moose will soon have a new web site – and they are hooked up on Pinterest. They will also have a blog – you will have to check it out.

    I repinned a link that directed to an Etsy shop. I nearly purchased them, but they were white, and I don’t think that’s a particularly great choice for kids. Fortunately, making them myself allowed me to size them appropriately. Plus it was fun!

  5. You are awesome. Also, my kids will be so happy to have warm hands on the walk to school in the morning. Perhaps I could also make Colin a scarf version… “Mom, my nose is cold. We should have taken the car.” “Child, we are NOT driving two blocks to school! Your father’s childhood driveway is longer than your morning walk, stop complaining!”
