Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow {4}

Let me start off by saying that I am overwhelmed at the response to yesterday’s post.  It’s left me wondering just what it was about that post that seems to have struck a chord with so many readers.  Don’t get too excited (I know you’re not that excited – but I am) – in the grand(…)

Pinspired and Produced #6

Pinspired and Produced #6 {7}

A few weeks ago, in my second weekly Pinspired and Produced feature, I mentioned that I was working on another, similar project.  Not very long before I started this blog, I bought four quarts of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and one can of each of the two different kinds of Annie Sloan wax.  So far,(…)

She Thought She Could

She Thought She Could {9}

You’ve maybe seen this quote around?  You’ve heard it and felt it’s positive message?  The other day I made a sign with this quote on it and put it up in my kitchen.  Today I realized that it is much more descriptive of my 7 year old daughter than of myself. My son asks a(…)

A Good Visit

A Good Visit {5}

Several of my recent posts have been about my trip to visit my Aunt Kathie last week.  I’ve talked a lot about what we did while we were there: making deviled Easter chicks with the kids, sewing projects, and taking llamas for a walk.  I haven’t really said anything about Aunt Kathie herself and I doubt(…)

Llama Love. . . {7}

Last week, while staying with my Aunt Kathie, I had the chance to visit Wunsapana Farm in Altamont, New York.  Please click the link and read about the farm in detail.  You won’t regret it.  I’m so happy to be able to share a little bit of our experience with you here.  Frankly, Mr. Social(…)

Tomb Cake Anyone?

Tomb Cake Anyone? {8}

Really – when I went looking for Easter crafts – I found a lot of ideas for making a tomb cake.  Tomb cake?  I just feel like those two words don’t really go together.  I do understand the religious significance of this day – though I am not at all religious.  And if I had(…)

Pinspired and Produced #4 {12}

This “pinspired” project is only indirectly inspired from Pinterest.  The actual object that I wanted to make is not one I found on the boards but rather it was one that I’ve owned for a long time.  I feel like I can still credit Pinterest though, as there are so many sewing projects there that(…)

These Chicks Have Been Around . . .

These Chicks Have Been Around . . . {7}

You know you’ve seen them.  They’re everywhere. If you spend any amount of time on crafty-mommy-fun-with-food-and-or-kids blogs you know you’ve seen these little chickadees.  Easter is just days away and those bloggers that are really prepared had their Easter themed pictures up on the Boards (the Pinterest Boards) weeks ago. I live in the moment.  It’s.(…)

Pinspired and Produced #3

Pinspired and Produced #3 {20}

A few weeks ago I saw a pin over at Pinterest that really caught my eye.  The knitted garment in the picture looked fairly simple and so instead of trying to buy it. . . I decided to try and reproduce it.  Besides, the price was almost 300 Euros – that’s a lot of dollars.(…)

Do You See What I See?

Do You See What I See? {7}

On Sunday, I got this present from my dog.  He delivered it directly to my lap (top).  If you look very carefully you can see that it was exactly noon.  I think he was trying to tell me to get off the computer, get out of the chair, and get out into the yard.  I(…)

Pinspired and Produced {10}

I’m wondering if it makes me sound like an old person when I say, “Every year the time seems to go by more quickly.”  It sounds, even to me, like something and old(er) person would say.   That doesn’t change the fact that it’s true.  My theory is that as we live through more and(…)

One Patina, Two Patina. . . {6}

The other day SOMEone made a comment about my  old lady hands.  It’s not generally true.  I don’t have old lady hands.  Having said that, recent over zealous application of hand sanitizer had indeed rendered les mains less than their usual youthful selves.  I’m mostly a soap-and-water girl but there are situations that call for(…)

No Idle Hands Over Here. . .

No Idle Hands Over Here. . . {6}

I picked up a knitting project this week.  I knew I would have some free time on Friday while the rest of my family was hitting the slopes at Catamount.  I do not ski.  I spend the day in the lodge.  When I say “spend the day in the lodge” do you get a mental(…)
