Well, I don’t know about you, but turns out the end of summer and the start of the school year is actually a really busy time of year.  Who knew?!  (Probably about a billion parents out there, but this one was obliviously unaware how as your kids grow out of toddlerhood, things get crazier, and not calmer).  Well, now that we are finally settling back in our routines, I figured it was time to dust off the ol’ blog because boy oh boy, I’ve been creating some fun projects that I can’t wait to share with you.  We are crafters, … Read More

We all have one… that secret indulgence item that you see, and love… but aren’t quite sure how much you’ll use it.  So most of the time you talk yourself out of it, opting to save for something you are sure you will use for.  And that is totally the grown up and mature thing to do.    But every now and then, we need to splurge on ourselves.  Give ourselves a treat!  I know I often think about doing something special for my kiddos – whether it is a surprise family movie night, going out for ice cream, or … Read More
