We still have a few weeks left in our Summer here, which means my blog is experiencing its “Down Season.” Not many projects going on over here, with the kiddies home and our days spent at the pool. Fall will be here soon enough though, and it’s always bittersweet. I always crave Summer’s relaxing, easy […]

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 […]

As you probably know by now, I’ve been refreshing my kids’ rooms lately.

Long time no blog! I’ve missed you so:) Those of you who follow my Facebook page know the scoop, but for those who don’t, I had surgery last week to remove that lump. Apparently even though my biopsy was all clear, my immunologist wanted to get it out and check out the tissue to be […]

DIY Ribbon Garland

This is one of the easiest but sweetest (and thriftiest!) little projects – seriously, anyone can do this one, and it’ll only set you back about ten bucks! If you can tie a piece of ribbon in a knot, you got this. My ten year old (with the help of her 9 year old sister) […]
