Why I Never Fold Laundry

I have talked about this in another post YEARS ago, and several of my friends have told me that this little tip kinda changed their life. So when a tip does something like THAT, I think it warrants its own post, am I right? Plus, it was a post from 2012 (say what?!) so a […]

June 2017 Roundup!

Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

A Decluttering Update and What Has Helped Me on Quest!

decluttering

I wrote a post about Spring Cleaning about a month ago and it seemed to resonate with a lot of you. I think most of us want to simplify life these days and clear out the clutter in our homes – I know for me, I’m a much better version of myself when things are in […]

That Summer We Let Go…

Long time, no blog, huh? This is typically my ‘off-season,’ since the kids are off school, but this year it seems to be even more so. I mean, there a MILLION and one projects waiting here for me – our family room is a hot mess, what with the wall coming down in early June […]

Life sure is funny, isn’t it? Here I was, a stay-at-home-mom having fun blogging about decorating my house during my kids’ naptime. And now I’m sitting here at my desk, looking at a stack of business cards and scheduling in clients for consultations and Craft Nights. BUSINESS CARDS. CLIENTS. CALENDARS. WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?!!! Yes, […]

We Need To Talk…

Real life

So I ran into a friend last week. We were catching up, and she says, “Saw on Facebook that you posted a blog yesterday – but to be honest, I haven’t read it yet. I’m not ready to see another perfectly gorgeous project and feel terrible about my house!” She was laughing, but it got me […]

There is No Place Like Home

There is no place like home

Helllloooooo! I missed you! I missed blogging! I missed decorating! Sorry, a *little* excited….;) We had such a great summer, and I’m glad I took the break. Really glad. It was good for my kids, and good for me, too. Made me realize just how much I love all this crafty-decorating-blogging-biz and it’s rejuvenated me to […]

Summertime Meal Planning

I got a text from one of my friends the other day – she asked me how I stay motivated to cook healthy meals for my family in the lazy Summer months. Then I got chatting with a friend at the pool yesterday about this very thing. Figured, maybe it’d be a good post?! I […]

Wow, sitting here at the laptop writing my first blog post in what feels like an eternity! Sorry for the silence on my end, but it’s been quite a summer. I can’t even believe the sweet messages I’ve gotten from some of you – thank you for missing me! I thought maybe I’d share what’s […]
