Traditions.  I love them.  Even more so when you can take a time old tradition and interject something personal making it your own. Have you ever caught a wedding garter?  Have you ever worn one?  The garter is something that most brides opt to have.  Even when my brides don’t want to have the ‘garter […]

Every year the same holiday comes around in May and every year I wonder what to buy!  Should I DIY something thoughtful that has meaning behind it?  Should I go expensive and something I know she will love and totally deserves?  Something she needs or simply wants?? Then I remember that since I always leave […]

Have you ever noticed that March is the only month whose name is also a command?  March forward.  When I heard that the other day it really started to make me think.  Our New Year’s resolutions have drifted from the forefront of our mind and the start of Spring with it’s new growth gives us another feeling […]

Easter is one of those holidays that has become something fun for children.  Egg hunts, pictures with the Easter bunny, chocolate eggs, Easter baskets.  I’m not against any of those things, I love them all.  Except for when they prevail.  Tomorrow is Easter, a day spent celebrating the rising of Christ.  The main thing in Christianity.

For years, I wouldn’t touch a cookie if it wasn’t chocolate chip. I’m not as cookie-ist […]

As I’m getting ready for IF:Bowling Green, there are many cool projects that I’m trying to fit in.  This weekend I made table runners, just simple roles of kraft and white paper, markers and lyrics.  It was such a neat experience writing on 13 feet of paper the lyrics to songs that Darla and her […]

On days that you see me with any other hair style than a top knot/bun on my head are, well few to none. Point is that I rarely take time to style my hair.  Don’t get me wrong though, I can pin hairstyles with the best of them.  Seriously ‘easy’ and ‘simple’ hairstyles.  The thing […]
