deliacreates Today marks twelve years of marriage to this handsome guy! I couldn't have asked for a better dad for my kids or for a better best friend. He loves me when I shine, he loves me when I ugly cry, but most of all he just plain loves me...always...even when I don't deserve it. Thank you for all your love J. Thank you for being the jam to my bread. You make my life sweeter. 1d

deliacreates I love living in evergreen tree country. We miscalculated when we cut down our tree so I ended up with a ton of extra evergreen boughs to make wreaths with. I have enough to make at least two more! Basic evergreen wreath tutorial on the blog + more about the little LED wire lights. #MarthalightsupAmerica @marthastewart @homedepot #pnw 🌲🌲🌲 4d

deliacreates We just got this guy last night! We are still stumped on a name. Any ideas? (P.S. More about this clock + a giveaway to Zazzle is up on the blog.) 1w
  •   cathgrace Beta fish like to rest when they sleep, so they need something that is not the tank bottom to rest on, so they don't get fin rot! (just as an FYI, we recently went through learning all about them for my daughter!) 1w
  •   deliacreates @cathgrace oh whoa. Really? Should we put a little rock/coral thing in there then? 1w
  •   deliacreates @lexiehogge ah!!!! Good one! 1w
  •   deliacreates @paintedpisces I like that one ! @sparklee.sarah my husband really thinks yours is clever! 1w
  •   deliacreates @maliablossom oh my cuteness! What a fun story. 1w
  •   deliacreates @jessabtamed Bwahaha. That's cute. 1w
  •   cathgrace We put a plastic lid from a bottle of something, so we weren't overly high tech, my daughter just wanted ANYTHING to stop her fish from rotting :) she calls it his bed, and he really does sit on it. 1w
  •   deliacreates @cathgrace oh cool. I think we have a polished rock that might work. Thanks! 1w

deliacreates This kid's got pluck....and that's all they let the fourth graders do at this point. There's an orchestra concert tonight, so I'm both curious and excited to hear all the plucking come together . #cello 1w
  •   sewmuchado Aw I love this! I played the cello growing up and am requiring at least one of my kids to play it too ;). 1w
  •   bagsyblueco Love!! I played the violin for 9 years and it was such a good experience. But I'm kinda wishing I picked the cello now. #lesssqueaking ha! 1w
  •   sewastraightline I was first cello in my elementary orchestra #slimpickings 1w
  •   zakalia Cello is the best! I love watching kids make music :) 1w

deliacreates #widn is setting the advent box under the tree and waiting for the kids to finish up their baths. Tonight's task is eating Oreos and writing letters to Santa. Tagged by @mellysews ...tagging anyone else doing advent stuff tonight! 2w
  •   allaboutami Great connecting with you on Instagram, Delia! I've admired your work for a long time through Craftgawker 2w
  •   deliacreates You as well Stefanie @allaboutami ! I found you on craft gawker too! So great to 'meet' you! 2w
  •   bacidare Wow... ;-) What a nice birthday gift you prepared for me!! ;-) ....but I'm an ocean apart so your advent calender is safe ;-) 2w
  •   mellysews Why didn't I think of wrapping one each night? We do Christmas story books and every year I get stressed about wrapping them all at once. Need a better system. 2w
  •   deliacreates @mellysews I get stressed too! Still trying to think of s better solution. We do the books as well. This box is a reusable advent box with a chalkboard count down tag. I tailor it to what's going on in our family in real time. Those pre planned advents always stressed me out because sometimes what we planned wouldn't work out when the time came or someone would get sick. And the boxes were too small to fit some of the treats I wanted to use. So... This box fixes all that. I fill it before they get home from school each day. 2w
  •   deliacreates Or after dinner on the weekends. 2w
  •   deliacreates @bacidare happy birthday! 2w
  •   mellysews One re usable box?! Even more genius! 2w

deliacreates Christmas tree "shopping" today! 🌲🌲 2w
  •   boyohboyohboycrafts Haha, that's quiet a ceiling you must have! 2w
  •   bacidare @boyohboyohboycrafts ;-) oh yes! But think all the possibilities she would have by sitting a real redwood sequoia Christmas tree in the dining room... ;-) tons of decorations plus a climbing site for Natalie ;-) 2w
  •   deliacreates @bacidare @boyohboyohboycrafts . Haha. We ended getting a nine foot young fir tree (that we had to cut down to 7' when we got home!) It's cute but not as dense as we were hoping. We're still on the hunt for the prime spot of the forest to chop. 2w

deliacreates We burned the kale (it isn't thanksgiving if something doesn't burn ) and I forgot to start the rolls on time, but we ended up with five yummy vegetable side dishes, the turkey turned out , and we made some great memories with our little family. Now we're settling in for some apple tart and a Christmas movie. Moments like this remind me that life is so so good. I hope you're enjoying your own slice of the good life wherever you are. Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving! 3w

deliacreates Crouching Tiger Hidden Natalie. This how I was able to keep her from running around the gym and up to the podium while her brother got an award....again. The walk of shame to retrieve my child was...😬😬 don't be deceived. Those little legs are fast!! also, she dressed herself and I'm just glad she didn't wear her faux 'coon skin hat again. This girl is equal parts incredibly fun and driving me crazy. 4w
  •   sewastraightline Yes! Just yes to all of this 4w
  •   pharmgal22 Oh yeah! I have one of those too! Challenges me on an hourly basis😬 she's 3.5 and it has gotten better from when she was younger. Hang in there! 4w
  •   makeitandloveit She may be driving you crazy.....but she's fun to watch as an outsider! 4w
  •   lexandlivfootwear Hi Delia, sent you a DM 4w
  •   bacidare She is number3. I have the same, reversed version (2older girls, boy number3).... He is now perfecting the throwing technique...!! Better run away from the landing strip!!! 4w
  •   ciaraelliott 4w
  •   sordidsox Hey, my daughter (newly 3) is made of those same parts. :) some days are so hard. Good thing they're so cute. 4w
