I tried the 100 Day Project last year and got a couple dozen days altogether (and made a layout about it). This year I got a little 4x4 book to fill with whatever few minutes of craftiness I come up... Continue reading

It's been a busy few months with barely a crafty bit of anything to share...but at least tomorrow has some mini colored pencils wrapped up for my nephew and nieces. Happy Easter! Continue reading

I have done a bit of scrapbooking over the last several months (I started back on National Scrapbooking Day) and finally scanned the pages. It seems finding a cute 8.5x11 inch album is pretty much impossible now, so I am... Continue reading

This room is almost the exact same as when I last rearranged it three and a half years ago, which is a world record of consistency around here. But there was a small yellow table under the window that was... Continue reading

I only shared one batch of 2017 pages last year, so I am finally sharing the rest now. I love using the app as much as ever and continue to be really grateful that it's this easy to save memories... Continue reading

I decided to make a pretty big change in planner-ing (because that's a word, right?) for 2018. I have used an A4 binder for years, but I would rarely take it out of the house since it was so big.... Continue reading

I finished this book up a few days after Christmas and it's packed with seventy-two little pages. A few pages were shared already and here's a bunch more... Continue reading

When I was planning this little redecoration this past summer, I asked Sean if he would have ever changed this room from when I first decorated it a couple years after we moved in. I wasn't surprised to hear that... Continue reading

Happy New Year right on time six days into the year...but that's not too bad, right? This year I really, really, really want to figure out a way to get back to actually making stuff. I want to go back... Continue reading

This year has been fairly sparse as far as blogging, but there were still some favorites. Over the years, I have loved putting together these end of the year posts. Favorite Gift...colorful gummy bear snacks with a teeny tiny scoop.... Continue reading

I started this year's little 4x4 book right before Christmas and still need to finish it up. I was a little snarky on a couple of pages, but happy as can be to be crafting and can't wait to complete... Continue reading

We decided to make a big entree salad when we hosted Christmas dinner this year, but it occurred to me at the last minute kids were probably not going to be too excited about that. I needed something kid-friendly that... Continue reading

I came up with the "merry making" idea instead of twelve days of Christmas activities, since realistically we would struggle to keep it up for a dozen days. This way we can do any number, which I am really taking... Continue reading

For a few years now (2014/2015/2016) I have made super simple gifts with alphabet stamps. It's a way to have them still be homemade, but homemade pretty quickly. The alphabet stamps I picked were pretty big and weren't going to... Continue reading

This year's cards were deceivingly complicated. It seemed simple enough...a 5x7 photo (snapped in our backyard when my father-in-law was here visiting over Thanksgiving) backed with navy cardstock. There is a simple strip of photos with a sentiment adhered to... Continue reading

I have been super-duper slacking as a blogger this year...granted I never have really been an actual "blogger" as much as I have just been a sharer of occasional crafts and other random bits of life. Either way, I have... Continue reading

This year, for two of the three schools I work at, I made some orange peppermint bath salts for the administrative assistants. I have loved using salts & essential oils as a foot soak for the last couple of years... Continue reading

This year's dining room decorations are all shades of my favorite color...and maybe I went a little overboard for one meal, but I just love this holiday too much. There's a wonky flannel table runner with leftover fabric ties for... Continue reading

There's the dresser in the entryway, the new little shelf on a dark teal blue wall in the family room, and even the shelf in the kitchen that have been covered in Thanksgiving-ness. It's pretty clear all around the house... Continue reading

I made a pot of chili, have the apple cider and mulling spices ready to simmer, and have a ton of Milky Ways, Twix, and Snickers to try not to eat. Hope your Halloween is full of treats. Speaking of... Continue reading

Every year...every single year it will technically be fall, but it will still be ridiculously hot here. The last week and a half have actually been delightful, but the ninety plus degree weather is back tomorrow. So I will just... Continue reading

I have seven years of cards shared here, but haven't shared one in a while. These were actually thank you notes for the birthday gifts I was lucky enough to receive back in May. Now that it's almost "fall" (it's... Continue reading
