It was time. It was time to get on my big girl pants and cross some things off the to do list which I had been avoiding ostrich style. First I got up and went for a run. For the first time in a long time. It was fine. I maybe even enjoyed it a […]
A lot and a whole lot of nothing. That’s what’s been going on around here. The place is littered with half-finished craft projects. It seems that I can never actually manage to gather all the materials needed to complete something in one go. There are some wedding projects in the mix too which explains why […]

I have some carrots, not as many as […]
So these have been floating about on Pinterest forever and I thought they would be perfect in Grier’s room. Brodie has a sling bookshelf in his room which is great because he can see at a glance the book he wants from the front cover and he can put books away himself easily which is […]
