mer_mag I've got a Thanksgiving DIY craft round up on the blog today. Great ideas to keep those little hands busy while the real turkey is cooking. This paper puppet turkey, on the other hand, was inspired by my paper puppets in my book Playful. Gobble gobble. And if you're local tune into @studio5ksl right now to see me share a few of these projects and Thanksgiving craft table tips. (It will also be on their website tomorrow). #mermag #playfultoysandcrafts #thanksgiving 2d

mer_mag "Plum and Piper were particularly pleasant friends who always picked one another first for parcheesi, pancake breakfasts, paragliding and pillow fights. Plum perhaps enjoyed pots of potatoes a touch less than Piper but their mutual affection for pumpkin pie was not to be questioned." #littlebitsbymer Help me decide what Plum and Piper do NOT like? Tag a friend to play along!! #tellthetalewithmer 2d

mer_mag These little trapeze dolls are just waiting to find a home with some of you @bijoumarket holiday shoppers tomorrow and Saturday. I'm also selling my book Playful and will be signing from 11-1 pm tomorrow if you want a personalized copy. How cute would one of these big top ladies be with a signed copy of #playfultoysandcrafts under the tree on Christmas morning? Or maybe swinging from the tree #mermag 7d

mer_mag Why is it impossible to freeze time and keep my littles little? This one turned 6 last month and is already mr. independent. His cuddles are shorter and goodbyes swift. But he did blow me a kiss on his way to a playdate and he still loves to wear overalls (thank you mario) so I'm taking every second of little I can get - and then proudly, if reluctantly, ushering in his next chapter of aptitude and growth. Thanks @jessedraper for helping me freeze time in a way with this beautiful photograph. More beautiful shots to come from a collab with @loveolivejuice and @pinholepress that will also help you freeze time too. #mermag 2w

mer_mag Santa's workshop is starting to take shape around here. Are you making anything this year? If so what? I'd love to hear! I think hand made toys and gifts are the best. Tons of ideas in my book Playful btw (hey the book itself is a great gift!). Image from #playfultoysandcrafts by @nicolegerulat #mermag 3w

mer_mag The final Rocket Racoon. We went for a more grey and black face paint to match the fur and he was thrilled to spray his hair a diff. color. He loved it. His friends did too. Was a good night. And now I'm off to sleep...kids making themselves breakfast tomorrow . 😴😴 #rocketracoon 4w
