The reason for this Travel Information Printable is that while you are reading this, I am making my way (slowly) from Jamaica and home to my Squish. Hubby and I have spent the last 5 days at a resort here, but now its time to come back to reality (you can check out some of our adventures on my Insta
Have you ever heard of a Staycation? It is basically a vacation that you plan in your own town. It saves a lot of money and avoids the hassle of having to pack and travel long distance. These types of vacations are coming very popular for a few reasons. I like them because it means less time off w
This baked pear recipe get’s me thinking. I don’t know exactly why – but we never really had pears when I was growing up. I used to have fun carving apple jack-o-lanterns, writing messages on banana skins, and trying to catch grapes in my mouth, but I can’t remember ever having a pear until I was in
Having a craft blog, and working for an international crafting company – I often have the opportunity to talk to other people about crafting. Everything from sewing to card making, poly clay to jewelry, home decor DIY and home made beauty products. The crafting hobby has had a huge upsurge in t
There have been hundreds of tutorials written about the Sharpie Mug method, some using plain Sharpies, others using the oil-based kind. Essentially, you write on a mug in Sharpie and then you bake it until the drawing becomes semi permanent. Sounds amazing huh!? Always excited for new ways of decor
This past weekend, my little Squish turned 1 year old. I don’t have the time to get into how complicated my feelings are about it. What I CAN talk about, is his adorable Monster themed first birthday party.
Parties are sometimes stressful events. They tend to come around during the most poignant
I know it doesn’t look like much. I considered not even sharing this Coffee Scrub because it looks, well, like dirt. But let me tell you – you can’t judge this scrub by its color. I’ve been looking for a while for a good facial scrub to use periodically with my DIY Face moisturizer and DIY Thyme Ton
Graduating college was definitely one of my proudest moments. I remember how at one point, I wasn’t even considering attending because I had my mind set on a career in music – pop music, at that (as a recording artist). My parents urged me to apply to a local school as a back-up plan, and it was on
I’m a big fan of paper and stationary. I mean, I designed my own planner for crying out loud. So, while it is true this project could be a gift… I’ll skip the formalities and admit I made the DIY Marbled Paper Stationary for myself. I’m not even ashamed. I can’t wait to use it!

“Mommy Guilt”. The fact is, all mothers feel it. Maybe not all of the time, maybe not over the same things. (I actually think some of the comments that spurred me to write about Why I’m One of “Those” Moms were born out of Mommy Guilt.) There is something about the immense task of raising anothe
I think we’ve all had situations where our ability to form words just isn’t enough to express our feelings. This Mother’s day printable came from mine. Each year around Mother’s Day, I feel just that way. My feelings toward the women who have shaped me, and now toward motherhood itself, are complica
Living 2+ hours away from my mother makes being present in each other’s day to day lives a little tricky. We call, of course, and chat on Facebook. I send her pictures of The Squish a few times a week as well. I wish, though, that I could be more near on the crummy days, or even just the mundane one
