As promised, I'm trying to carve out a little time to write each day. I thought that it was a luxury that I should save until after my "real work" was done, like eating dessert after finishing all of your veggies. Instead, I'm finding that taking a few minutes in the morning, before the weight … Continue reading Goodbye Ugly! | DIY Cabinet Makeover
I have to wear an ID badge at work. I must have it on at all times while I'm in the building or at a school function. It allows me to be identified as a "staff" member (sort of...I don't get paid to be there) instead of a threat to National Security. In a constant effort … Continue reading Wildly Identifiable | Easy ID Lanyard DIY
I'm not having an actual birthday party this year, aside from a tiny family get together this afternoon (the get together is tiny, my family is normal-sized, just to be clear), so I decided to throw myself a little virtual party. All the glamour, none of the clean up, and I don't have to wear pants. … Continue reading day 23 | Virtual Party Planning
I get deeply invested in (read: obsessed with) Vacation Bible School. 2015 marks my 5th consecutive year as the Pre-Primary Director (3-5 year olds). During my tenure, I've learned more than a few things about coordinating a week's worth of lessons, crafts, and activities. To get through the week without pulling my hair out, organization is the key. … Continue reading day 14 | Climbing Kilimanjaro
I've been home for 3 days in a row because of the ridiculous weather we've had. We're two weeks away from the official start of spring and there is 5" of snow on the ground. Ugh. I'm also holding down the fort for a week while my mom is visiting David & Maggie on the West … Continue reading Have hot glue, will travel.
Tell me what is better than finding something for a dollar. I know, I know, finding it for free would be better, but give me a break, okay? Inspired by my new re-dedication to my blog and my need to come up with new, amazing projects and things, I spent some time with Emily this weekend. She … Continue reading Chevrons are like stripes — with attitude!
Pop Quiz! Can you name the film from which comes the line that makes up today's title? Don't look at me, I'm not telling! I'm taking a break today from regaling you with my dinner victories to talk about a little craft project. This project stemmed from an abundance of thin cardboard I happened to have on … Continue reading Better a silly girl with a flower than a silly boy with a horse and a stick…
GOOD MORNING!!!!!!!!!! Too early for that? Sorry. Let me try again *good morning* Better? Good. I hope you had a lovely weekend. As you may have read on Friday, Emily and I were supposed to have a crafting weekend but since she bailed on me couldn't make it, I crafted alone. I finished two projects … Continue reading Pssht…I could do that….
I told you this would be long.... If you haven't read Part 1 of this post, click here. So now that you have all the pieces cut out, it's time to start assembly. Start with the "bottom" row. Lay two blocks right sides together and pin and sew up the shared edge. Continue for the other … Continue reading BAM! Quilt! Part 2
You may (or may not) know this about me: I graduated from Auburn University in 2009. Another random fact? I am a member of Omega Phi Alpha, National Service Sorority. One more for good measure? Sororities give out a lot of tee shirts. Like, a lot. Now, I don't really wear tee shirts but I … Continue reading BAM! Quilt! Part 1
