Happy Birthday Madison!

April 9th, 2018|Uncategorised|

Twelve years ago today, well yesterday actually, I was admitted to the hospital to be induced because the little lump in my tummy refused to move out.  She was stubborn even before she came into the world.  Somewhere around 16 hours, a fainting Hubby and a c-section later, Miss Madison blessed our lives.

Today I/we want to wish her the very best 12th birthday any little girl young lady could ever have:

To my beautiful baby girl that I accidentally dropped on […]

Tips for Bloggers: How to streamline your social media

January 15th, 2018|For me, Uncategorised|

*This is a sponsored post in that I received a discount on my Cinchshare membership and am part of their ambassador program.  I will tell you that I approached Cinchshare after having tried their service for a couple of months and being thrilled with the amount of time and work it has saved me.

I know a lot of you come visit me to laugh at my antics, check out a DIY project or perhaps even learn a new craft – […]

100 Random Acts of Kindness

December 21st, 2017|Uncategorised|

A dear friend reminded me that I haven’t posted my 100 Random Acts of Kindness list this year!

I’m so sorry that it slipped my mind!

Not to worry – there is still time to do a few pre-Holiday good deeds, and RAK’s really don’t have to end on Christmas day….

why not make it a challenge to do 100 Random Acts of Kindness in 2018?!

 

Here is my list, please print one for yourself and share on Facebook and Pinterest so that others […]

(Faux) Metal sign

September 17th, 2017|CRAFTS, DECOR, DIY, Uncategorised|

Are you a Joanna Gaines fan?

I’m not really country or farmhouse chic – but there’s something about her style that appeals even to me.  Maybe it’s the warm and welcoming feel.  Maybe it’s the metal sign she hangs in every house.

Smooth lead-in right?  (not entirely cohesive, but I got the “metal sign” in there lol.)

Houseful of Handmade made a gorgeous hammered metal sign that looked so much like the real thing I had to give it a try myself…. […]

Grace & Frankie – Jane Fonda’s Wardrobe

March 31st, 2017|For me, Uncategorised|

Have you seen the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” with Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin?

Grace and Frankie

It is SO good!

This ‘older woman odd couple’ has Jane Fonda (Grace) as the uptight preppy and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) as the weed-smoking hippie.  The two are thrown together when their respective husbands come to terms with the fact that they are gay and in love with each other.

It’s about friendship and family and acceptance and denial – all in […]

Where did I go?

March 27th, 2017|For me, Uncategorised|

I’m sorry I was AWOL last week – I promise I wasn’t abandoning you for binge-watching Grace & Frankie (although I did do that) – last week was a bit crazy with “stuff to do”.

We went to Florida for March Break, so last week was all about ‘catch-up’ – the worst part of coming from vacation.

Yes, given that this was my vacay-view, I certainly won’t complain […]

Free Fall Screensavers / Fall Wallpapers

September 25th, 2016|DECOR, Uncategorised|

The blog post I did over the summer – the one where I gave links to a few sites that were giving away desktop wallpapers / screensaver – well, it is still getting traffic?!

Now that Fall has “officially” arrived, I thought maybe I’d try to create a few of my own for you to use.

For my  desktop wallpapers, I like a lot of white space to house my files.  I don’t want to cover over my daughter’s eyeball with blog images, or […]

Plants and Pets

September 22nd, 2016|100 LISTS, Uncategorised|

I’ve seen this listing of plants that are “Pet-friendly plants” and “Toxic plants for pets” at my Veterinarian’s office the past few times I’ve been.  Each time I’ve thought “this would make a GREAT blog post!”  I’ve taken photos with my iPad and made a mental note to post something…

Then I build something and forget (again, and again).

This time, my Vet gave me a tear-away page to bring home with me.

I’ve searched online and I cannot find the original version […]
