As you can see from my prior blog postings, I love to organization. But I have child who does not. I recently told him that the sight of his room, literally, puts me into a panic attack. His response, “Mama, I think you are being a little dramatic and you’re still alive.” I think heContinue reading “When your child wants to save everything…”

Purposely Purging: Clothes
As I have mentioned in a prior posting, I love to organize everything. I feel so much better when everything has a place and there is a system or reason for placement/organizing. One of the first organizational projects I tackled was my closet. I personally thought that clothing would be the easiest for me evenContinue reading “Purposely Purging: Clothes”
I Stepped on the Scales Today…
Today, at the local wellness center, I decided to step on the scales. Like what you use at the doctor’s office. I normally would take off every piece of clothing possible and shoes, hoping to lessen the load. I know this has little impact but makes me feel better. Those types of scales hide nothing. Continue reading “I Stepped on the Scales Today…”
Vacationing with Kids is not a Vacation
I love making memories with my kids. I enjoy taking them places and sharing new experiences with them. I hope these experiences have an impact on them as they continue to grow and learn about history, science, government, sports, civic service, etc. However, that goes without saying that taking kids on trips is hard work!!

Addicted to Organizing
It’s true, I have a couple of addictions. Step 1 is to confront the addiction which means to admit that I have one (or a couple). So, my addictions include: Starbucks coffee, Jcrew clothing, and organizing (everything). There, I admit it. This blog post will focus on how I organize my home and life.

Taking a chance on a cabinet
I really like re-doing furniture. I can visualize what pieces of furniture can look like with some TLC, basic cleaning and conditioning, and a fresh coat of paint or stain. I love seeing the possibilities! This all started with 4-H when I was involved in the Home Environment project. We would purchase old furniture andContinue reading “Taking a chance on a cabinet”
Traveling Alone Isn’t For Sissies
IRELAND 2016 This quote is from Hope Floats (the movie) but instead, in the movie, the line is “Dinning alone isn’t for sissies.” Agree, doing anything alone, for some people, can be hard. But I crave time alone, I need it to recharge, to think, to clear my head. I took a trip to IrelandContinue reading “Traveling Alone Isn’t For Sissies”
Do I need a side hustle?
With the New Years’ and buyer’s remorse as credit card bills roll in from December purchases, the need to look for more money making opportunities is at the top of the list for many. Pinterest has a million and one posting about side jobs for anyone looking for part-time work or for stay-at-homeContinue reading “Do I need a side hustle?”
Hello! We are always working on something new. Below is a look at some of recent projects. I spend way too much time on Pinterest finding new furniture building projects. But we save money, we make pieces that are what we want and fit our style, and we enjoy working together.
Are We Over Medicating Our Kids?
As I was helping check kids in for a summer camp, I noticed the line for the nurse continued to grow longer and longer. Even after we were done checking in around 250 kids (ages 9-12) the nurses line was still 30 people deep. Each one had a zip lock bag with not one, butContinue reading “Are We Over Medicating Our Kids?”
