NaBloPoMo Fail

When I first found out about National Blog Posting Month, I was like oh, yeah, I can do this…I have a lot to say. I was so wrong. Somewhere along the way, I ran out of things to write about. I cannot believe I just said that. But it’s true. […]

And a Dress Becomes Wall Art

I guess it’s obvious by now that I love to decorate. For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on the entry way (I’ve been told that it is actually a “mud room“) from the garage into my house ~ the room is basically a pass through that no one […]

Creative Self Discovery

Growing up, I was an artsy kid. My dad was a talented artist and I like to think that I inherited my creativity from him. I used to decorate envelopes with elaborate drawings ~ some were abstract, a few were of every day scenes. My mother loved receiving letters from […]

Small Things are Really Big Things

I have failed at writing a gratitude post every day. I didn’t write anything yesterday because I didn’t have anything “big” to write about – there were no fabulous sales, no successful culinary experiments, no children making me laugh…. The only thing that happened is that I woke up and […]
