Woo-hoo! We made it – another Friday! Pat yourselves on the back, life’s tough out there! Guess what? I made a thing! And I wanna show it off! Some major time has passed since I’ve crafted and I’ve been itching to get creative on the quick. Naturally, I stopped at the craft store yesterday on the way home from work […]

You guys-you’ve almost made it to Friday! You deserve a pat on the back, and something to kill the time until the weekend kicks in, am I right? We are gearing up for a trip for my birthday weekend, so I’m totally feeling antsy about getting there already. But, first. I wanna know – do you Etsy? […]

Oh, ha-ey! How’d your week end up? We’re finally getting winter ’round here, in all it’s Phoenix glory.  The days are cool, the nights are chilly, and it’s nothing short of fantastic! Before I throw my last vacation photo dump at you, I thought I’d share some of the souvenirs I made for the people […]

Happy Monday! Is there such a thing? Bleck.  Freaking hate Mondays.  But you know that by now, right? So do you remember how crazy busy our May was? I had two housewarming parties, a niece’s birth, birthday parties, chaos and disarray.  And a hellofalota fun.  To add to the madness, I decided the best thing […]

TGIF!!!! All caps, all enthusiasm – trust me on this.  It’s been crazy trying to get everything put back together after the pumpkin party, and then my sister’s graduation + party, and then you know, working 40 hours a week + everyday life.  As an added bonus, Joe got rear-ended on his way home from work […]

This one’s for my co-worker Jenn, who requested some ideas for pumpkins that don’t require carving.  Since she hasn’t committed to Pinterest yet.  Sheesh.  Oh, but wait, how are you? How was your week? Can you believe it’s already October?!? I feel like we are on the fast track to crazy town over here with […]

Hey buddy! How the heck are ya? I’m just freaking fantastic! No, really! It’s been a little busy, but in a totally good way.  I’m making progress on some goals, been spending time with the family, and I’m doing my best to enjoy this sweltering summer.  My sister, her Mr. and their five kids left for […]

Mondays stink.  I hope yours is going good so far, though! Mine is to be determined.  I had a super-productive Sunday, so if nothing else, I can go home and lay on my couch and do absolutely nothing tonight if the work-day gets too hairy. Cereal for dinner, anyone? I made some valentines over the […]

My brother-in-law and a dear friend got married in October and I’ve been meaning to share some of the photos with you guys.  Trish and I have been friends for about 10 years now, and four years ago I introduced her to Joe’s brother, Mike.  I remember the first time they met, Mike walked me […]

So, I admit it.  I have a slight tendency to collect decorations.  Birthday party, Pumpkin party, Christmas, you name it.  I store them nice though, OK? Unfortunately, because I hang on to things so long, they start to deteriorate after a while.  So then I try to breathe new life into stuff that falls apart, […]
