nataliemalan Been Prepping all day (week) for a big Mother's Day give away collaboration on my work IG account next week. I moved all my art related stuff there and made this account private just to post family pics. @nataliemalanstudio = day job @nataliemalan = 24/7 job and if you're interested in a custom drawing like the caricature one I did of penny (and never posted here) be sure to watch. 4w
  •   asiawhitty wow, you are really good at art. cool! 4w

nataliemalan Two weeks ago I packed up 5 huge 65(?)qt storage bins of toys and put them in the crawl space. It's been so fun to see how imaginative the kids play without them. #lessmessmorefun The boys played the kissing mommy game today, then played puppies and blocks with some muffin boxes (we still have plenty of toys and blocks; the muffin boxes were just out) and some random game involving marching, singing, and Calvin waving a plum at Emmett and them both laughing hysterically. Over and over. For three hours. Tonight it was music and clapping and running in circles while David played Legos. #becomingminimalist #longwaytogo #probablyjustaphase #butstilllovingit 3mon
  •   sharpetersen We rotate our toys and I love it. Makes it seem like Christmas every few months on the big switch day, and we don't have as big of messes to clean up. 3mon
  •   nataliemalan @sharpetersen it makes so much sense! My mom did that with our toys as kids and I'm glad I finally did it too! I've definitely been picking up toys less and playing with the kids more. 3mon
  •   aliashton Best idea! 3mon
  •   mwkirkland Great idea! I should adopt it. 3mon
