    Haha! This is still me at my house, except on every table instead of the stairs. I love how the dog and cat are in there too.

    That is so very, very true. Along with exploding out of clothing in the middle of the floor.

    This was something that happened often in my childhood home! I think your felt art and stories are wonderful and thank you for posting them for others to see!

    Remind me of my chilhood! My mother used to say: “no free trip!” :D

    Ha! My mother always did this when we were growing up. And now that she’s 91, she’s taken the opposite approach too – she throws things down the stairs instead of carrying them down.

    I like the naked Barbie! And is that a Glo Glow Worm? That one definitely makes the list for creepy 80s toys!

      I thought they were creepy too! All my friends thought I was crazy and those worms were super cute!

    Hilarious (and true) as always! I love the attention to detail in all of your work – this time I particularly like that barbie and the glowworm! :) Also love how the dog follows your mom around…

    Don’t go up the stairs empty handed. It is a simple premise but one children and men never seem to grasp. Excellent presentation of it. I love that the dog follows your Mom around.

    I just adore Chrissy shimmying up the banister. Even better than usual, Nicole. Thanks!

    So true. This is our house now. I can’t stand it! The kids walk by their stuff 20 times and it kills me. Are those Pound Puppies? I don’t know how you can make everything so detailed.

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      I wish I had more time to make even more detail! It’s so relaxing and fun to me. Those are Pound Puppies! Mine and Ashley’s.
      Kids have a special chore blindness, I think…
