May’s Highlights & Happenings

Wow, May really flew by… I guess that’s what happens when you have too many things going on in a single month, plus all those DIY projects I’ve been dreaming up.

Mothers Day Reflections

Happy Mothers Day!A flower for the mothers out there! I’ve been a mom for 10 years now. Wow… I can hardly believe it!

All my paint froze, and by […] Read more…


January Highlights & Happenings

This has been by far the craziest strangest month! The frigid cold we have been experiencing around the Great Lakes has put a bit of a hamper on my projects. Without the ability to work in the outdoors (or at least allow for some ventilation), not a whole lot is getting done around here. Anything that […] Read more…
