Well, hello there! Pardon me, I'm extra giddy seeing that it's Friday and all and the weather 'round these parts is PEEERRRfect!

I've been featured on Better After. You've got to go check out all of the crazy before's and after's that Lindsey has featured. I don't know about you, but there's nothing like a great before and after photo to really make me day. . . I'm not kidding. Makeovers make me smile.

Attention all Kindergarten Teachers

OH my goodness. My 5-year-old came off of the bus toting this cute little nest the other day. Attention all Kindergarten teachers: you need to make these in your classroom. They learned about recycling and then headed to the playground to find "lining" for their little bird nest. The nest is made of an old brown bag all wadded up. The little bird is made of a cottonball. Probaby the only thing in the nest that isn't recycled. She played with it all afternoon. I played with it a little too. Hey, sometimes you need a new photo model. . . one that doesn't talk back to you.


I know. . .I've been gone for so long. It's the busy time of year for this photographer taking family photos. We've also had a few vistors the last couple of weeks.

I picked up a couple of really large pillows at Savers a few months back. I'm not gonna lie, they were ugly . . really ugly. Check out the dangling bead tassles. I found all but one in my baby's mouth. I finally wised up and pulled the last one off. The golfer uses them when he sits on the floor to watch golf or football. He even said to me, "when are you going to do something about these ugly cushions." Okay okay I'll make them pretty. Twist my arm why don't ya. Enter: lovely houndstooth fabric. I made them removeable. Now I don't have to hide them in the closet when someone stops by.
