Pinterest Pin It Do It – August Progress

Pinterest Pin It Do It – August Progress

Part of me wants a few more days in August because this month went so dang quickly, but the bigger part of me is glad that tomorrow is September and my calendar is a little less full. I honestly am not sure what happened to the month! But here we are on the 31st and I’m sad to admit that my own challenge was a bit of a bust for me. I did six pins–which […]

Pin It and Do It – My Progress Report

Pin It and Do It – My Progress Report

Did I mention that May and June are my absolute busiest months at work? And that I’ve known this for the past five years? Ya–I’m beginning to think I really am insane for these challenges I’m whipping it up. Lisa did remind me yesterday that “Insanity” is in my blog title. I’ve always wondered why I included that… So even though I feel that I’ve only barely chipped the mountain that is my Pinterest collection, […]

Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge

Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge

You’ve probably heard me talk about my love for Pinterest. No? Well, I love it. As many of you have also discovered, Pinterest is a virtual pinboard where you can “pin” posts/sites you’d like to visit again, share the ideas with others, and repin what your friends have pinned. Scratching your head? For example, if I see a recipe on a blog that I really want to try I used to either star the post […]

Sunday Salon 61: Double Stacked Shelves

Sunday Salon 61: Double Stacked Shelves

Good morning lovely people!!  Remember how I told you a few days ago (or months)  that I was working on redoing my bookshelves? Well, I’m pretty close to being done but my “read” shelf was really starting to stress me out. I had to remove a stack of books before shooting the below picture just so you could see the chaotic mess. (don’t mind the blurry shots…).  I already filled one bin of books and […]

Virtual Quilting Bee – A Year of Completed Blocks

Virtual Quilting Bee – A Year of Completed Blocks

Last April my cousin Elise asked me if I’d like to join a Virtual Quilting Bee with her. I somehow forgot that I was 38 weeks pregnant and told her YES!! I was especially excited because my sister decided to participate as well. What is a Virtual Quilting Bee?  I think that they probably all run a little differently, but for our group, the NewBees (because we were all new to bees…ha!), each person was […]

Homemade Quilted Christmas Stockings

Homemade Quilted Christmas Stockings

Scott and I were Christmas shopping a few weeks ago when he casually asked me, “Are you going to make Christmas stockings this year?” My response: “Eventually I want to make quilted stockings, but not this year. Too stressy.”  Be assured that stressy is a word and it is a very real emotion. On the way home Scott asked, “Can we go to Hobby Lobby?” Me: “Sure, what for?” Scott: “To get stuff so I can […]

Recipe Scrapbook!!

Recipe Scrapbook!!

Pin It Remember last January when I announced my new Recipe Scrapbook project? Well, I’M FINISHED!!! Except for those recipes that I recently tore out of my Real Simple magazines–but as I explained to Scott, this will be an ongoing endeavor and I’m considering Phase I to be complete. Wahoo!! To provide you with a little background in case you’re a new reader, the recipe scrapbook project began when I finally couldn’t handle the ridiculousness […]
