Words in the form of a Letter

September 9, 2013 I’ve struggled to find the words I needed for today. I went from maybe posting about a pillow I painted to a dresser I painted to a chalkboard I made (super easy, no work required projects) but I just wasn’t in the DIY “mood.” I longed for some profound words and found […]

Lessons Learned

July 22, 2013 Did anyone ever tell you, “You learn something new every day!”? I still say this to my children at school and I make the comment to myself often! There are lessons all around us. Especially if we surround ourselves with people to learn from. How I enjoy spending time with those older […]
