Happy Tuesday Friends!

Well, I feel like we have a lot of catching up to do!  What started as the flu and then turned into antibiotic nastiness had me down and out and I feel like I missed St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of Spring, Easter, April Fools Day and a lot of Happy Fridays in between!  And you, I have missed you!

Hello Friends!

I have come out of hiding! 

Thank you so much for all of your encouraging comments on my Off The Grid post…it was comforting to know that I am not alone with this blogging/life balance struggle.  I think that finding the balance for me is the key to posting on this little old blog.

Simple & Pretty Shim Heart

Hello Sweets!

I thought that Sweets was a fitting word…seeing how Valentines Day is right around the corner!  Who doesn’t like a holiday that centers around Chocolate? 

Before Christmas I did a post on how I made some stars out of wooden shims here.  As I was making the stars I wondered if it would be possible to use the shims to make hearts?

Do Something Creative…

…Every Day!

I am not one to make New Year’s Resolutions…but this year I told myself that I would be more creative…I would try to do something creative every day!

So far I am making that happen.

Happy Thursday Friends!

I hope that your week is going well so far!

It has been so cold here that I am starting to feel like I have ‘cabin fever’…no long walks outside with the Side Kick!

Valentines Decorating…

…For Almost Nothing!

Ok…so I will admit it…I still have my big white Christmas tree up…I know, I said I was taking it down last weekend…I wasn’t ready!

Since almost everything else Christmas related has been piled on the basement floor put away…I decided to do a bit of Valentines Day decorating…
