Mine are a mess, too. And I always embraced that until I had to cull through years of photos for specific ones that my girls needed for school projects. That was daunting! Now I keep a file for each of them with a snapshot or two from milestone events, birthdays, etc. Now when they need one for school or whatever, I can find it. The rest are still a mess.

Yes! It is such a good reminder that the best course of action sometimes is to walk away. I need to remember that!

When it comes to naming quilts, I'm often stumped. This one, though, was easy. All that orange and white? Creamsicle! Never mind that I had to explain what a creamsicle is to my children. Don't worry - a trip to... Continue reading
