Floral and Gingham Easter

Over the year’s we have had some fun themes for our Easter celebration. It makes me happy to try and coordinate outfits and table-setting around a theme. Last year, we had fun combining two hot trends: floral and gingham. The gingham tablecloth from my daughter’s 14th camp/dance birthday party worked perfectly as a backdrop for […]

The Gift of Giving Life – A Mother’s Day Gift

This book review is a stop on the Virtual Book Tour for The Gift of Giving Life. I was provided a copy of the book for my review. All opinions are my own. Never have I felt more like a mother than I did on Mother’s Day three years ago, having just welcomed my fourth child […]

A Mother’s Day Poem

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I wasn’t expecting much of a Mother’s Day for me this year since our focus has been on the surprise party we threw for my Mother-in-law’s 60th b-day yesterday. (Don’t worry, it’s in the blogging queue now-and the last of several parties in a row, so hopefully I can get them […]

Mothers Day Bouquet, Tablescape, and Mantle

I think the saying should be “May Madness” not March Madness. I have a dozen or so posts waiting for me to have time to give them the attention they deserve, but I’m bumping this one up the queue since Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY, and I thought you might be looking for a little […]

Keeping Track with Clipix

I have just learned about a new way to keep track of your ideas online. I’m all about finding ways to organize the creative insanity! I’ve created a couple of boards on clipix to try it out. It’s quite fun to use! The thing I really like about clipix is that you can determine the privacy level (and change […]

Spa Day Birthday Party — Nail Polish Invitations

It’s about time I share the pictures from my daughter’s Perfect 10 Day Spa Birthday party, a couple of weeks ago. I’m going to have to break it down into small parts (since there were so many details) if I am going to get through it, though! We’ll start with the invitations today! If you […]

Happy Mothers’ Day! {2011}

My Mother’s Day Bouquet of wildflowers picked for me by my children and displayed in vintage bud vase. I want to wish all women a spectacular Mother’s Day today! I hope someone is pampering you and helping you to feel loved after all the service you give in mothering those you love. I really like […]

Mothers Day 2010

My mother and I, just a short time after baby Alec was born last Sat. She took such good care of my family this week! It was hard to let her go home. Thanks, Mom! I can’t think of another Mother’s Day where I have felt more like a mother, than I do today. The […]

Happy Magnificent Motherhood Day

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!  I hope you’ve all had a fantastic day and got to feel as loved as I did as my son sang “Mother, I Love You” (with the other children at church), at the top of his lungs.  (No microphone needed…that kid is ready for Broadway!) We have just a few Magnificent […]
