the catch up game & don’t worry about a thing.

…every little thing is gonna be alright. (Bob Marley, anyone?) Since I went on a mini vacation this week, I have a lot to catch up on for the #31DBBB challenge. However, before I move on to the next steps in that challenge, I think I may need to soften any concerns that might haveContinue Reading

my mini vacation.

I just returned home from a mini vacation with the hubbs (sans kids). My mother-in-law & mom took turns staying with the kiddos, while I went with my husband (and his boss) on a 3-day business trip to St. Louis. And when I say vacation, I mean true vacation, in the sense that I didContinue Reading

I made the mistake of going to Michael’s last night. I needed lollipop sticks to make Cake Pops for Lil’ Man’s birthday party this weekend. I knew I shouldn’t have gone in, but I just needed one thing. Do you know there is a Cricut Cake? I knew about the Cricut for scrapbooking that cutsContinue Reading

writer’s block & a little bit of old school.

Writer’s Block. Every time a good blog post pops into my head, a computer is not accessible. I’ve had several pop into my head over the past few weeks, but every time the laptop was being used by the girls or the Internet was down. Or, I wasn’t able to go downstairs to work onContinue Reading

I have wanted to design photo cards for a while & even planned on starting it as a business a couple years ago, but didn’t have the time to focusContinue Reading
