  • My Dog Lost Her Mojo Tonight
    on Feb 27, 2013 in Uncategorized
    For the sake of my husband’s sanity and my own as well, we decided to buy a tie-out for our two year old dog.  She looks like a dog, smells like a dog, but behaves like a dainty toddler.  She is Gemma.  Gemma is an 80 pound chow/lab mix that...
  • Five Minute Friday- What Mama Did
    on Feb 24, 2013 in Inspiration Five Minute Friday
    This post is especially hard for me to write.  Not because I didn’t share any great and special moments with my mama as a child, but because I have no memories of my childhood at all.  There are very few pieces of my days as a child that pop...

  • Maps as Wallpaper- Wallpapering with Maps
    on Feb 9, 2013 in design maps as wallpaper
    A hot new trend in home décor is to apply maps as wallpaper.  The process is the same as applying wallpaper and you may use the same tools as well.  The only difference is the maps are much more delicate and can tear easily.  So great caution mus...

    Closet Organization When you think of the messiest area in your house, what comes to mind?  Is it your bathroom, kid’s room, or your bedroom?  For me, it was my closet.  It’s hidden away so no one can see it so that gave me permission to ignor...

  • Little Giver
    on Jan 22, 2013 in Children giving
    Like any other work day, it started out 15 minutes behind schedule. This no doubt leaves me little more than 45 minutes to get myself and my second grader ready for the day. Let alone the dreaded task of feeding and walking my nincompoop of a canine.
