i-Top Tool Review

i-Top Tool Review

A few months ago, I was flipping through a jewelrymaking magazine and came across a bracelet made with lollipop wrappers.  The wrappers had been turned into buttons with something known as the i-Top Tool.  I had to have one, of course.  I waited and waited for them to go on sale, but they never did.  […]

My Thoughts on Breastfeeding

My Thoughts on Breastfeeding

This blog post has nothing to do with crafting. At all. It’s not a Minutesaver Monday (well, I suppose it can be). I plan to get back to those after my show in March. This post is about breasts. I eagerly anticipated breastfeeding my first son, almost eleven years ago. He took to it right […]

How to Frame a Canvas

How to Frame a Canvas

Do you know how expensive it is to get canvases professionally framed? Trust me, it’s expensive. Even with coupons and deals.

Here’s the materials […]

RSV is an evil stinky thing.

Sorry I have been so MIA lately!  It is certainly not intentional. I’m a pretty busy lady in general, but having a little one sick with RSV throws a big wrench into my crazy life. I had heard about RSV and known other kids who have had it in the past, but I guess I […]

Easy Valentine (or everyday) idea for kiddos (or anyone)!

I love <and cherish> the $1 section at Target.  Today I happened into Target and took a quick tour through the $1 section and found these little mailboxes!  So cute!  I brought a couple home and vinyl’d one up for my son.  On the front is his name.  I hot glued the mailbox to a […]

Canton “First Monday” Flea Market FUN!

Canton “First Monday” Flea Market FUN!

So, this past weekend, my husband treated me to an afternoon of fun in Canton, Texas! Canton is home to what is proclaimed to be the largest flea market in the United States. You certainly would be hard-pressed to see it all in one day, and I did not see anything remotely close to all […]

It’s my birthday!

I will be taking a couple of days off from blogging to celebrate my birthday and work on some ideas that are rattling around in my head. Later this week, look for a blog about my weekend visit to Canton, a delicious slow cooker chicken recipe, and a last-minute Valentine favor idea! Until then, keep […]
