    Just discovered your blog via Pinterest. Sooo lovely! Always good to find a Martha Stewart wannabe like myself in blogville. I don’t have my own blog anymore but am toying with a new idea. For now I’ll be following your adventures and just wanted to say Hello and good job!

    Hi Fellow Lady:) Need some help. How in the world did you create your sidebars? Just purchased Elemin theme, and I cannot figure it out. I like how your sidebar categories link to posts you’ve written in the past. Help? Your site is the coolest, and I have seen quite a bit!!

      Hello… apologies for the late response; I am a little behind! The answer is quite a bit of trial and error and some help from the WP tech gurus via the Elemin Theme user forum (I think each WP premium theme has a dedicated site forum. Essentially you drag across an image widget for each category, and then link to the category – it will then select all posts you’ve tagged for that category heading when visitors click on it. The WP It team can help with a more detailed answer; my knowledge of it is very sketchy. Hope that helps a little if you haven’t solved the problem yet!

    Found your blog when I was researching how to add images to my widgets. I see that you have done that. I have tried everything on my blog and can’t get it to work. Do I need a premium theme? I was able to get an icon by using the image widget for one of my headings but can’t use it again. If anyone out there can help, I would be so grateful. I’m getting “mind freeze”.

      Hi Rebecca; I did this by dragging across an image widget for each category and then customising with specific images; I’m not sure if this functionality is only available with a premium theme (I use Elemin). It’s worth going to the WordPress user forum for the theme you’ve chosen and asking the specific question there, and also adding a link to my other other sites that have the look you want to achieve; the gurus can then give you very specific guidance on how to get the look that you want. Good luck!

    Hi Kate,

    Thought I would take the time to post my comment to say thank you for an awesome idea. I used the link for the superhero cuffs and was amazed at how great they turned out. Instead of using buttons I used foam stickers in the shape of stars. My son had a blast helping me with it (it was his 6th birthday and we invited 13 kids). So of course I had to ask friends to help me get some toilet paper rolls :) . The party was a lot of fun to plan and this idea was pretty much last minute but so easy. It’s a craft we could do at any time and have a good time. Fantastic !

    Thanks Kate,
    Charmain

    Hi Kate, I just foun

    I found you quite by accident. Isn’t that how some of life’s most delightful moments happen, though?

    You are at the beginning of your mom-life and I’m in the empty nest stage but finding it really important to share my thoughts and ideas with my grown kids and anybody else who’ll listen. :) I will enjoy wandering through your beautiful and eclectic blog for ideas and inspiration and encouragement! Thanks so much…

    Hi Kate, thank you for your blog, it’s so much fun to read what’s doing in your household and what amazing creations you’ve devised for young Harry. Your Fathers Day blog brought back happy memories of my own dad with his clunker of a typewriter, being ever so proud of it and how he would have embraced this new technology we have today. Time flies by and our lives are filled with magic moments. Thank you for letting me share some of yours and for reminding me of my own special dad. Love from down under ….. Trish x

    Hi Kate – If you make it to Connecticut on your trip to New England in October, Harry would love Mystic Seaport. You would be able to board the Charles W. Morgan, an 1842 whaling ship that is a National Historic landmark and America’s oldest commercial vessel, which was launched again in July after a five-year renovation. (As Harry is fond of pirates, what could be better than exploring a ship that could have encountered them on the high seas?) There is also a re-created 19th-century village with role playing characters (and a special Sights and Frights event planned for October in honor of Halloween). Mystic Aquarium features beluga whales, penguins and more and is just down the street. On October 18, there is a family overnight where children (accompanied by an adult, of course) will be able to pick a place to sleep alongside the tanks housing their favorite sea animals. Discount coupons and information about both venues are available on line. Have a wonderful trip!!!

    Kat

    PS – I love your blog!
