Pinterest Weekend Wrap-Up

featured

During the school year, I have my kids primarily at my house during the weekends. It’s a bit of an unconventional set up, my ex and I share 50/50 custody, rather than the traditional; all week at moms, weekends with dad. I end up at dad’s house once or twice during the work-week as well…

What’s Cookin?

I have not faded away, I am still here, remember me? Oh my gosh you guys. It’s been a strange couple of months. Strange, wonderful, and eye opening. Turns out, starting a new business, when you’re already working full time, takes up a lot of your energy. Who knew? It’s been really wonderful though, and…

Thursday Randoms

Success is more than what we've been taught.

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.  I’ve been working on my Etsy store for 2 and a half weeks, and yesterday I finished, and launched it!  I felt so amazing after I launched it, and then it got better, I made 11 sales. I’m telling you, the feeling that comes over you…

LTB – Never Stop Trying

Clearly, I understand the importance of shoulder pads in business at a young age.

For today’s episode of Let’s Talk Business, I’d like to tell you a story about epic fails! When I was five, I was gifted with a beautiful, plastic self-inking stamp.  The image was a strawberry with a happy face, and the ink was strawberry scented.  I was pleased.  I realized that I really enjoyed the…

Eggy Goodness

Brooke quietly sang "You Should Be Nice To Poor People" as she painted.

My kids are currently interested in Easter.  It makes sense, they hear about it at daycare, they know we’re having dinner at our neighbor’s house.  I reminded them the Easter bunny’s coming. A couple years ago, I battled with whether or not to do the whole Santa/Easter Bunny/Tooth Fairy thing. I thought of myself as…

Birthday Love

I’ve been so behind on my blog-postin’, but it’s been a great few days filled with lots of birthday loveliness.  My kids, Brooke especially, get so excited when it’s someone’s birthday.  They bring so much energy to the day, and I love it.  Jared let me sleep as late as I wanted on Sunday.  It…

Some Random This and That.

Pretty, pretty.

– I made Miriam’s gluten free pancakes (with chicken sausage) for dinner last night.  They’re awesome!  They’re a little different than traditional pancakes, a little thinner, with a really nice nuttiness.  I would definitely make them again, thank you Miriam!  You can click here, and look under Comments for her recipe. Do you know, I…

Weekend’s Over

I take pictures of yarn.  I am a yarn nerd.

And I’m actually a bit relieved.  I’m sick like that.  I like Monday’s, what? The truth is, I enjoy a challenge, and waking up in a good mood (with an angry two year old), is a challenge.  So I try to wake up and totally kill it by feeling excited.  My days don’t always live…

Confession – I am addicted to activities.

I don’t know if it’s exactly a problem, but maybe I’m in denial.  I am obsessed with doing things.  Especially things that are not related to bookkeeping and vehicle maintenance.  Over the last 5 years my hobbies have included: sewing, drawing, dying textiles, crochet, knitting, photography, writing, relearning the violin, and reading.  I’ve also been…
