Refashionista

Yesterday my sweet oldest boy cut my sewing machine cords AGAIN (he has a love affair with strings and “creates” them out of everything). I wish I could write here that I was understanding and patient. Unfortunately I cannot. I lost it. All I could think about was the projects I couldn’t do and how expensive the replacements are. Shame on me. I ran out to get more cords and [Read More...]

Good intentions

I had every intention to post a full week of Mother’s Day ideas. But it just didn’t happen. By now, it’s kinda too little too late. I still have 1000+ posts in my reader and I might just have to hit “mark as unread.” And I would hate that. I like to be in the know. I always hated going to bed because I thought I would miss out on [Read More...]

In addition to raising funds, our favorite SoCal photographers- Blue Lily- were beyond generous in giving away a mini photography session [Read More...]
