Wednesday I arrive at the state college campus around 7:45am and I do not get home from the community college until 9:45pm. I teach four classes...two of which are over three hours long. On Thursday morning, I am tired. I... Continue reading

This planner project at the beginning of the year included patterned paper scraps that I didn't want to toss...so they quickly got stuck to a card. Continue reading

I have collected too many fonts for too long, so I thought I'd start to share some of my favorites every once in awhile. These are all recent finds... 1/2/3/4/5 Continue reading

It has been about six months since our kitchen project. I gambled big on the organizational front by insisting we get rid of half of cabinet storage in exchange for a more open feeling. And, after spending yet another weekend... Continue reading

On February 19, 2005 I started a blog... I was twenty-eight years old. A part-time high school instructional aide, who was taking one class at a time at the local community college. I had an eight-year old. I had been... Continue reading

I spent the day organizing school and life back together after the last week. This project was actually completed a couple weeks ago, but I hadn't shared. After years of being stuffed together as a jumbled pile, my stamp pads... Continue reading

I fell off of it a little. I caught a cold last week (like I have for the past two years this exact same week on the calendar) I started teaching two more classes. I went camping...and I lived to... Continue reading

In February 2013 I shared the before photo of our laundry room...and I never shared the after. When we first purchased the new washer and dryer we planned to leave them side by side. A week later we went back... Continue reading

A couple of years ago, I barely went on a hike and shared my unreasonable fear of nature. This upcoming weekend I am heading out into the great outdoors to camp or something. It's actually a group of friends and... Continue reading

Last Thursday I took one hour before picking up Mac from school to stop grading, listen to a podcast and craft. Man, was that a good idea. With Valentine's Day this week I couldn't resist all the pink and lovey-dovey-ness. Continue reading

Photoshop Elements 7. I just looked and they seem to be on the 13th version now...I should probably update it at some point considering how often I use it.

I am not quite sure what made me think to start using the Project Life app for documenting 2015, but six weeks into the year I am really happy I did. I have it on my phone and iPad and... Continue reading

I sent my eight-year old niece and my nine-year-old sister little kits this week to craft up some valentines. I saw this super cute jar of conversation heart stamps at Michael's and grabbed a few other supplies to go with... Continue reading

Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only two holidays that I am guaranteed to decorate for way in advance. Every other holiday decoration throughout the year is at great risk for not being up until the night before or something. This... Continue reading

I had this weird idea for a bean-dippish-taco-meat-cheesy-onion-dip-type-combination-concoction-thing for a few months, but finally got around to seeing if my idea worked a couple weeks ago. It worked. Enough so that Sean has asked for this to eat while we... Continue reading

No, but I saw you mention it somewhere in the last few weeks and had put it on the never-ending list of what I want to read. :) Oh and "warm and fuzzy" is the perfect description!

I did this at the beginning of the semester and it is awesome. It's amazing that such a simple change could make me feel like I have control of all the emails from students, as opposed to being at the mercy of the a notification popping up. And has anyone mentioned how cute all your apps look in rainbow order? Love it!

Shared these ideas about learning with my students as the semester started. Oh my goodness are these images a powerful example of how we are living our lives. Such an empathetic explanation of a concept that can be tough to... Continue reading

This was a way overdue project that finally got tackled over the weekend. The cabinet under my bathroom sink had become a disaster, but nothing that a trashbag and a trip to Target couldn't fix... I used the label maker... Continue reading
