A Cohesive Design

A Cohesive Design

     If you have the goal to simplify your household and to do some major decluttering, you also can conquer a streamlining of your home’s interior design. Recently, I was forced to do this. In fact, I did it two times! We moved twice in a six-month time frame. You would think that one […]

Living Simply: Intro

Living Simply: Intro

When I was a child, I received the greatest of all furniture pieces for my bedroom: my very own desk. I was thrilled to organize my school and office supplies in the built-in drawer and cubbies. I stashed pens and markers where they belonged and I stacked looseleaf paper in a bin. A new level […]

What to See in Scotland

What to See in Scotland

Scotland offers the sights, the history, and the landscape, but my number one reason for making the trip abroad was to see my daughter! Jon and I landed at Glasgow Airport, had our first cup of coffee for the day, and enjoyed a warm greeting from Jordan after months of being apart. Never mind that […]

The Thrill of Work

The Thrill of Work

Maybe I’m drinking entirely way too much coffee, but so much has happened in the past two weeks! I’ve researched the Christmas shows that I want to apply for and read up on preparing for a craft show. I immediately started shopping the awesome after-Christmas sales for crafting supplies and created my expense sheet which […]
