I have to admit, I like decorating for holidays but sometimes the holiday sneaks up on me and I don't have the things I need to make a cute presentation. That's when making my own placemat and cupcake toppers is... Continue reading

I've always loved summer time as a kid. The anticipation leading up to it was always such a great feeling. I feel the same way about summer now though too because it means my niece comes out to stay!... Continue reading

I love books! Fact, fiction, crafts...they're all good! Today I'm going to share with you some great new books that I was sent to review. Rest your mind at ease, when I get review books I read them and if I don't like them I don't review them...so these ones passed! :) I'm so glad they did too because the publishers were nice enough to allow me to give a copy away to my readers! ...
