  • Turning 2 at the Dairy Farm!

    I don’t typically post about my family and kids on my blog but this is a special occasion, my youngest is turning 2! I took him to the dairy farm for his photoshoot and although he was a little serious the photos turned out adorable and I have to share them. If I ever become…

  • Niagara Falls Getaway

    These weeks keep ticking by, I can hardly believe I only have 7 weeks left before baby #3 arrives (or darn near 7 weeks). Somehow I always end up putting off the most important things for last. Hoping to register with the hospital in the next week or two and need to pick out a…

  • Memorial Day Weekend

    What a beautiful weekend we had here in Northeast Ohio, the weather was perfect and we managed to get a lot of our house chores completed or pretty close to completed. Our garden is pretty darn close to finished, we just need a gate door to keep our deer out but my husband should have…

  • Quick and Easy Key Lime Pie Recipe

    By Sunday night I found myself sitting on the couch realizing that it wasn’t Saturday anymore! Where did the weekend go? It was another busy weekend of preparing the garden for our little sprouts, so many little seedlings and plants are lining our deck right now. All at different stages, we just planted more seeds…

  • Mother's Day Weekend

    It’s hard to believe that it’s May already and Mother’s Day is upon us once more. Everywhere I turn there are reminders for all of the dad’s and children so they don’t forget mom this year. Mom’s not only carry you for 9 months and wipe every runny nose but they’re always there for you,…

  • Spring Is In the Air!

    Spring is in the air and the flowers are in bloom. It’s been hard not to enjoy the warmth of the sun lately and getting out into the fresh air. Opening up all of our windows and airing out the house and feeling the breeze brush through the curtains.

    We had to make sure we enjoyed…

Thank you to everyone who has purchased from my shop over the past month, whether you were aware of it or not I was sending 20% of my sales to support Suicide Prevention and…

  • Earth Day Goodness

    Today marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day! I try to incorporate as many eco-friendly and natural products as possible into my shop and have actually just placed another order for recycled card stock for my greeting card shop to celebrate.

    It’s great seeing so many people coming together to help celebrate and take care of…

  • No Child Left Behind or Not?

    I know this isn’t really related to arts or crafts but it’s been top of mind lately so I feel the need to share or vent my thoughts on this. I was never one that got overly involved in my son’s school events, even with his curriculum; he always got good grades so I never…

  • Half-Baked

    Happy Spring!! I’m hoping mother nature realizes it’s spring and starts warming things up around here, I am ready!

    Its official according to my midwife yesterday the baby is now ‘half-baked’! I couldn’t help but laugh when she told me that at my appointment. I’m sure she meant baked like a turkey but of course my…
