The Mistreatment of Windows:: A Tutorial

The statistics are staggering.  You and your family may be completely unaware of what is going on right under your own roof.  In fact, the numbers reveal that 1 in 4 windows are poorly treated, and that is in this country alone (studies are as yet inconclusive in the developing world)!  Don’t make the mistake […]

DIY Baby Wipes

Anybody have a baby with a tender tushie?  I certainly do!  After 2 horrible yeast infections in about 2 months time I decided that I needed to change something.  I was thinking about going all the way to cloth diapering (yes, I use disposables and contribute to the world’s landfill problem) but why not start […]

What I’ve been up to… Like making heart shaped pizzas and goldfish goodies

Between work, two kids, trying to be an attentive wife and wanna-be Suzie Homemaker, I find myself taking pictures to keep my life in focus. Luckily for you, I’m the sharing type.

Quick & Easy Canvas Art

My favorite Christmas carol is Oh Holy Night. Every time I hear it, I get chills! The line I love the most is “The weary world rejoices…” I love how the Christmas season brings a sense of hope and joy in our hearts. We can grow so weary of our everyday lives. A little bit […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  I love Christmas, I mean I LOVE Christmas.  It’s always been my most favorite holiday and favorite season.  Maybe it’s because I grew up here in Vermont and had the whole white Christmas experience, maybe it’s because I think a Christmas tree possesses a smidgen of magic, […]

Citrasolv Transfer Tutorial

Oh my goodness.  I mean it, oh my goodness.  You all need to stop what you are doing right now and run over to City Market (or another natural food store) and buy yourselves some Citrasolv.  It’s a natural household cleaner that has found new friends as an image transfer solution!  Since I am making […]

Creation of a Costume – Final in Series

Two days and counting!  Halloween is almost here and when last I wrote I was in a painting dilemma for Aden’s Bumblebee costume. Crisis averted!  Like a bolt of lightning from the sky came the idea that would save my son’s Halloween.  You could see the proverbial “light bulb” go on over my head.  And […]

Creation of a Costume: Part 2

The countdown is on, only 8 more days until Halloween!  Where did this month go? Well I have been diligently working on Aden’s Bumblebee costume and to be honest it hasn’t been as bad or as difficult as I thought it was going to be.  That’s not to say there haven’t been any snafus along […]

Creation of a Costume: part 1

This year my 4 year old, Aden, finally gets it. Gets what’s supposed to happen at Halloween that is. And the thing that is exciting him the most is not the gobs of candy (that will haunt Mommy until Christmas treats start rolling in) but the act of dressing up. The quintessential ritual of the […]
