2020 Instagram Challenge

A friend and I decided over pajamas, wine and appetizers to do a Christmas Instagram Challenge.  In December we posted a Christmas picture for 24 days.  My sister and a friend joined in.  It was great seeing pictures and such a diversity of them. So over the holidays we decided to do it again but … Continue reading 2020 Instagram Challenge

A word for 2020 and getting there

THE WORD....... A few years ago I had the word "courage" for my word of the year.  It felt right and throughout the year when I was starting a project the word would pop into my head, giving me that extra push to just do it.  Courage to finish. Courage to try. The word didn't … Continue reading A word for 2020 and getting there

A different type of holiday gift

I'm behind the eight ball this year with the holidays.   By this time I usually have figured out an easy craft I can semi-mass produce for friends.  Something to show I'm thinking of them.  This year nothing.  Seriously, I checked Pinterest and tons of great ideas, just nothing that I was running out to purchase … Continue reading A different type of holiday gift

Simple things – picture holder

This just seems too simple, but I wanted to catch you before the end of the year and you tossed out your daily calendars.  These calendars with the lip for the 365 pages make ideal picture holders.  It doesn't matter that they are plastic as usually your picture will cover the whole stand. I had … Continue reading Simple things – picture holder

What caught my eye in the past month

Well in the last month it was the holidays that caught my eye.  I love holiday decor. The greenery, ornaments, DIY and more. Hope it isn't over the top for you.  Enjoy. A Beautiful Mess  has a house tour that I found bright with pops of colour.  Actually I thought it looked like a happy … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

It has been ages since I participated in stream of consciousness Saturday.  Where we are giving a prompt and just write.  For all the details head over to Linda G Hill.  This week's prompt is the word "shade." My first thought when I saw the word shade was something a co-worker and I just experienced.  You know … Continue reading Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

Just what I needed to hear

I'm sure we have all been there.  Ruminating over things not under our control.  Giving away our power and our time to someone, something, whatever, that doesn't care or we can't change no matter what is said or actions we do. I've had a few of situations come up this week. Wham right on top … Continue reading Just what I needed to hear

I’m having a staycation! What to do? Lots!

I enjoy travel. Seeing new places, having new experiences. There is a whole world out there for me to explore.  The question is where to start. My travel experiences usually start with a discussion of where we want to go.  Any similar bucket list places.  So far there always is. After that it is planning.  … Continue reading I’m having a staycation! What to do? Lots!

What caught my eye in the past month

I can't believe I'm posting what caught my eye and it is November.  I imagine this month and next holiday posts will be catching my eye and hopefully giving me ideas.  November for me is National Novel Writing Month.  It gives me focus and I feel a part of a writing community. It helps we have … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

This is not a craft blog – just saying

Again this is NOT a craft blog.  That said I do enjoy doing things with my hands.  From painting, knitting to using a glue gun on pretty well anything.  For me it is often when I am in the moment more than at any other time.  It helps that I enjoy the journey of creating … Continue reading This is not a craft blog – just saying
