Today all I wanted to do was play with my new nail gun I got for Mother’s Day, but alas, I had errands to run and a house to clean. But we are close to having life back on our normal schedule and the house is resembling something people could actually live in. So before this last weekend becomes a… View Post
Last week my son turned 6! I know I am getting older, but I still feel like I’m barely 20-something and I am too young to have kids turning 6. But alas, time keeps moving and they keep getting bigger, which means I keep getting older! At least I still feel 22 on most days 🙂 So for his 6th birthday,… View Post

I actually started blogging about all my projects so that I would have to finish them. Before I started documenting things here, my pattern… View Post
It’s been another crazy week. I have been running around and that usually means less cooking. I really need to be better at crock pot meals so that I can get dinner going in the morning, then run around all day, and come home to dinner ready (or mostly ready) to go.
I have been having a blast using my Spring Blooms digital papers to decorate with. The colors are perfect for everything bright and spring time! So I started by printing out a selection of the digital papers on my new photo printer and got to work making a bunch of paper rosettes.
