For the third straight year, jonahsebauction.blogspot.com will be celebrating Jonah's birthday by holding an auction to raise funds for DebRA, an organization that supports EB patients and families AND provides research funds in search of a cure for EB.
Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare genetic disorder that is painful and can lead to disability, disfigurement & early death. There is no cure or treatment today. EB makes the skin so fragile that the slightest friction causes blisters and skin tears. The eyes, mouth, throat and other internal organs are also affected.
The 2012 auction begins Friday (2/24) at 8pm EST and runs through Monday (2/27) at 9pm EST. There are tons of items up for auction including handmade goods, jewelry, gift cards, and more! Support this great cause and bid on something this weekend at http://jonahsebauction.blogspot.com.
Be sure to make a bid on my scarf and headband set from my Etsy shop Two Little Sea Stars!

I saw this one on Pinterest and was eager to try it because my son is not quite ready for finger painting in general and could use a few more learning activities geared towards his age range. I was actually quite disappointed to say that it didn't work very well. I may need more watered down paint or a different surface that won't be destroyed by paint. I put saran wrap over paper with paint on it and didn't really move around. It just squished a little. My son lost interest after about 30 seconds. Oh well, Pinterest Fail. If you have tried this and tips to share, please comment and let me know!

|Currently for sale one-of-a-kind at Two Little Sea Stars|
|This is my friend Morgan's daughter, who is about to turn 2 and about to be a big sister. I loved trying out this flower block pattern for her baby blanket I sent her. Happy 2nd birthday Hollyn!|
|This set I exchanged with another vendor at a craft fair this past Christmas for a set of pink skull earrings to wear to Logan's "Lil' Rebel" themed first birthday. She was really excited about giving them to a friend.|
|This blanket I made for my friend Sara's daughter Grace. Sara lives in Chicago and I miss her so much!|
|This I made for Brittney, my business partner at Two Little Sea Stars. She did a beach themed nursery for her daughter, Ava Grace, and this is one of the items that inspired us to start our business.|
|While I was pregnant with my son I made him several items. This hat and the two sweaters below.|
|My husband loved the hooded jacket I made my son so much, he asked me to make him one too. After 13 months, I finally finished it, don't my boys just look so cool?!|

I'm starting a new catagory! I want to be able to share some things on pinterest as well as post some inspired projects that I found on pinterest!! Here are some crafty things I'd like to share and then keep scrolling to see my first Pinterest project! Be sure to follow my boards too!
This week I'm sharing some hand-made cards I've done! One of my favorite home-made gifts is to take blank cards and add nature photos I've taken with some colored cardstock backgrounds and then give them to a loved one so they have a stock pile of card for any occasion!
Here's my first Pinterest project:
My Completed Project:
I did my box double sided, with my own take: "30 Blows!" on the other side! I used granola bar boxes, wrapping paper, tissue paper, grosgrain and sheer ribbon, a hot pink pencil hot glued to the card and box, and then stuffed the bottom of the boxes with tissue to give the suckers something to stand on. My girlfriend loved it! Happy 30th Sarah!
