Look.  I know it’s August.  But to crafters, we like to start early as Christmas is the biggest holiday for us.  We make cards.  We make wreaths, We make a dozen other crafty things, then we bake.  If we don’t start in August (July for some!), we’d never get done. With that said, I make […]

It’s August.  Can you believe that?!  I can’t! This summer has been brutal for most parts.  High heats, fires, flooding… but I’m so not ready for winter.  Not one bit. I’m afraid that time is going to whiz by from here til Christmas.  We have a baby shower in a couple weeks.  Then the baby […]


Smile!  It’s the best way to start your day. It’s been a very busy last few days.  I’ve been in creative mode and loving it.  We’re going to be babysitting our granddaughter next weekend, so I had to get ahead of some things and just play around with other things… to be shared soon! Speaking […]

I’m late this week and I appreciate the extra time given.  It’s been crazy around these parts and going to be getting crazier.  My youngest son and his wife are finally getting a mini honeymoon, so Grandpa and I are going to be babysitting our 6 month old granddaughter for a few days.  Not going […]

Greetings! I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it harder and harder to create lately.  My studio is in the front of the apartment and by 10am, it’s sweltering hot in their, in spite of having A/C.  And now the forecast is for mid 90s the rest of this week. I have been striving […]

Oh, the heat!!  We’ve been in the mid to upper 90s for days and the forecast calls for at least another week of sweltering heat.  We’re even experiencing higher humidity that the norm. So, we went for a family picnic/bbq this weekend… in the heat.  It just saps the energy out of me and it […]


Well, I’ve started to think of Christmas.  I know, I know… it’s too early.  But, we’ll have four grandchildren by then and it will be my first Christmas as “grandma”.  I think that requires me to spoil them.  The oldest is a 12 year old boy, so that is going to be tricky.  I remember […]

It’s been an exciting weekend here.  Wild weather and shopping the closeout sale at Babies R Us.  With a 5 month old granddaughter and another granddaughter due in late September, I have been keeping an eye on the savings at both Toys R Us and Babies R Us.  We’ve shopped a couple times and got […]

So, yesterday was Father’s Day.  The sons (except #3 who lives in Maryland), took hubby out for a day of good old fashion man fun.  They drove out to the countryside and shot their rifles and hand guns.  Then they bowled a couple games.  My hubby could not be happier.  My part was to make […]

For years, I’ve told my hubby that I won’t buy him a Father’s Day gift/card as he’s not MY father.  I’ve encouraged the boy to celebrate with him, though! My youngest did commission a card, though.  My hubby is a Navy Veteran and is very proud of the time he served.  So I chose the […]
