Welcome!Made in Brooklyn is my place to document my creative journey, from bread to babies, cards to cakes. You are welcome to come and join me for a while.

We did it! After re-working our getaway several times last week (Dave’s work kept getting in the way. sigh.), we finally got to Washington on Thursday afternoon. We spent a lot of time walking around the mall and looking at … Continue reading
Most of this weekend I worked on editing photos for a project I’m working on for Autism Awareness Month. I want to figure out a way to share the project with you without actually sharing photos of kids I’m not … Continue reading
This weekend we went to Central Park. And explored the Central Park Zoo. The boys and Dave have never been, but back in the day, I took my Kindergarten class here. It’s a small zoo…which is still a tick in … Continue reading
Looking through these photos for today’s post, I had several thoughts. First, I didn’t think this hike was that great. We drove out to Pennsylvania with a destination in mind that we discovered was closed. So, we found another trail … Continue reading
This weekend Dave’s mom was visiting. We took her to the Unisphere in Queens and the Hall of Science… …where Isaac had a series of meltdowns… all in protest to the pesky idea of “sharing”. We’d be playing in an … Continue reading
