It feels like I only just blogged about Nine. Or Eight for that matter. And yet, here it is, already Ten. Time flies. Happy Birthday to my big kid!Read More: Ten? Really?
Over the course of this past autumn, I swore off shampoo, deodorant, and moisturizer. I know. Either you’ve done this before yourself and are thinking “good for you” or you’ve never done it and are thinking I’m crazy (not to mention stinky). Well, maybe I am a little bit crazy, but I smell just […]Read More: Body Powder Gift Set
Aidan’s having a Raving Rabbids birthday party next weekend, and I wanted something special to wear. Hey, if the guys are getting t-shirts, it’s only fair that I get a new party skirt 😀 I had found the Rabbids images online, mirrored them, and printed them onto t-shirt transfer paper. I made the skirt itself […]Read More: Bwwwaaahhh!
My poor husband claims I don’t pay enough attention to him. Usually when he says that, I just laugh and shoo him away so I can get back to what I was doing. (hee hee) But yesterday, after my podcast post, I started to think maybe he’s right. You see, he saw my list of […]Read More: Poor neglected husband
Every now and then I post about the various tools I like to use to get organized. Then a few weeks go by, and I am usually posting about what a mess my house is. The truth is, the best organizational tools in the world won’t help you unless you use them. Sticking with the […]Read More: Better living through podcast listening
If you know me at all, you know that in the last few years I have become a skirt fiend (weather permitting), but what you may not know is that in all of my skirtmaking, I have successfully avoided having to do such things as make darts and sew zippers. All of those pesky little […]Read More: Built by Wendy Dresses
So yesterday I got caught up in the snowiness of it all, bundled myself up, and went outside to run down the hill and feel the falling snow bounce off of my face as I flew by. Four times. I made a snow angel, and had a snowball fight, too. Before all that, though, I […]Read More: Wintery things
What does your husband do the night before a snow storm? I’ll show you what mine does: Yeah. It’s a Dalek. And just because it wasn’t nerdy enough the way it was… He added lights. Tomorrow it will probably be covered in a foot of new snow. I just hope we don’t need our plunger […]Read More: Preparing for the coming Snowmaggedon
Often when I crave a craft book, it is the cover that sucks me in, especially when ordering online. I’m a pushover for lush photography and the promise of enticing projects within. Usually, it’s a tendency that serves me well, but in the case of Mason-Dixon Knitting, which lacks a cover photograph at all, it […]Read More: Mason Dixon Knitting
I have not been managing my time well recently. For a while I had an excuse, but that’s all over now. For the past week, I’ve gotten to the end of the day wondering what, exactly, I have accomplished. I see many areas in the house that need my attention. For one thing, new arrivals […]Read More: My own personal vortex of time
