Let Your Heart be Light {on finding ways to banish stress & anxiety from the most wonderful time of the year} {9}

When I was little, when we all were little, the very idea that Christmas was a whole year away gave me a little pain in my heart.  For truly, I thought, I could not bear to wait that long.  The time from one Christmas until the next Christmas was at least 3 years.  Or so.  Right?(…)

Spooky, Spooky!! {kids halloween crafts} {4}

I’m sort of cheating on you.  No, really.  I’m blogging somewhere else.  Don’t worry, I still love you. If you’ve come over here to breida with a b. from Extras For Me, then you already know about this little situation, but I thought I would let my usual readers know as well.  You can find(…)

So the Fall decorating continues. As I travel through my first year as a blogger, I am a little amazed at all of the creativity that I see.  I find it fascinating that we are all doing a similar thing (decorating for a season or a Holiday), but each of us is doing something just(…)

Where Does the Time Go? {on blogging for half a year} {19}

So, not only did the first week of September see the unofficial end of summer, Mr. Social Media’s birthday, the first day of school, the continuation of on-going bathroom(s) renovation(s) , and a trip to the emergency room, it also marked my sixth month as a blogging machine.  For six months now I’ve been banging(…)

Are We There Yet? {and other things your kids say in the car} roadside rescue makeover {32}

Last week my son was in a day camp and my daughter was home with me.  We got to hang out and spend some time together.  We didn’t really do anything crazy. . .  but it’s not just the two of us that often – so it was nice.  It just so happens that there(…)

It has been a very long week since I last posted here on the blog.  In all honesty, I’ve missed you.  I’m not trying to be cute.  I’m not sure I’ve gone a whole week without posting since I started the blog. . .  and I’m surprised at how not writing has made me feel.(…)

I’m Feeling Good From My Head -Tomatoes! {DIY tomato cages} {9}

What?  You don’t like puns?  I happen to think they are hysterical.  I expect that puts me in some kind of low humor category.  Ask me if I care.   I saw that somewhere on Facebook yesterday and it made me laugh.  And, as promised, today’s post will be about the tomato cages I built am(…)

Summer vacation. I love having my kids home with me all summer.  I am well aware of the fact that they are not going to want to hang out with me forever, but at 10 and 7, I am still their favorite person – and I am deeply grateful for that fact.  However, hanging out(…)

Pinspired and Produced #11 {19}

See?  Last week when I did the Pinspired and Produced feature and said it was #9, none of you noticed that it was really supposed to be #10.  And honestly?  One of us should really be paying attention.  Maybe you did notice and you were too polite to say anything.  I’ll try to keep track(…)

Mother’s Day Craft Tutorial {0}

I realize that most of my audience here are the moms them selves.  Do the moms really need a simple craft idea for Mother’s Day?  Well, moms have moms, too.  And I have found that sometimes, only sometimes, the dads and the kids?  They could use some. . . guidance.  This simple idea is also very versatile.(…)
