Valentine's Day

Here’s a recap of our traditional family Valentine’s Day Party. It’s been fun creating Valentine’s Day crafts and decorating the home in preparation for a celebration of LOVE.

We set the table with our heart plates and pink glasses and turned down the lights for a roomantic {as Nicholas calls it} mood. Our dinner menu included BBQ beef sandwiches, corn and spinach salad.

The kids enjoyed the funny mustache straws I picked up at […]

I love weekends, especially when I get to sit down and work on perfecting my jewelry making skills. Since I’m still a beginner, I do a lot of experimenting. The glass tile pendants I use for making Glass Pendant Necklaces were giving me fits, but I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Yay! Hopefully, I can share some of those with you later on this week.

In the meantime, here are some of […]

Valentine's Day Mantle

Confession… I totally got sidetracked with my mantle wall makeover. {By the way, the comments you left for me are super helpful and I promise I’ve already started working on some of the suggestions. Please feel free to chime in if you have more ideas for me!}

Goals for 2013


Here’s an update on how I’m doing with my goals for 2013. Some are going super and I’m totally failing with others. Overall, I’m very happy with the forward momentum. I am convinced that I wouldn’t have made as much progress, had I not sat down, thought through and written down some goals.

Personal Goals

Complete a Bible Reading Plan. I’ve been doing very good with this so far. I missed a couple […]
