I feel like time is FLYING by, these days!  The end of the school year is so hectic…and I only kids in pre-school.  So, I thought I would write one post and catch  up on all that’s been going on. 1.  Rain and Storms:  I could do without having to use these so often! I […]

Patch Work

IMAG0035

It’s a little running joke with my neighbors that I am the neighborhood “fix-it woman.” (Dont’ be jealous! or laugh) I enjoy a challenge and as long as they are willing to let me make a mistake. After all I have no training, just a few years of DIY experience. I have found that a […]

How GREAT

I know I have been posting a lot more personal things lately, but I feel like I can finally start sharing myself with you.  Yesterday my husband showed me this video and I found it so moving that my first thought was “I have to blog about this.” Growing up, Sundays were a day of […]

Beware, this post is about a partially failed sewing project. ********** A friend gave me a HUGE box of packing peanuts last year and they have been sitting in my shed ever since.  The plan was to use them when I shipped things from my Etsy shop, but that has not exactly happened. So, what to do […]

My Baby is THREE!

Claire, my youngest, is three today.  Where does the time go?  It is truly amazing how fast they grow up.  Honestly, she has felt three for a while now. She seems so much older than she is because she is big for her age and talks like her sister.  She is such a sweetie and cuddlier.  […]

It's OPEN

Well after almost a year of procrastination, I finally have my Etsy shop up and running.  I think the idea of just getting started is what has stopped me from moving forward.  I spent the majority of the day working on the technical aspects of Etsy and taking pictures.  (I was even able to add […]

Potting Bench Makeover

I am SO sick of rain!!!  (It’s raining right now.)  I know I shouldn’t complain, when some of you are doing rain dances, but the gloom of rainy days is taking a toll on me.  We have gone straight from winter into weeks and weeks of rain…arrrgh! So this weekend we had a few hours […]
