Love this shirt! So cute and great tutorial- you could use this ruffle for the front of a little shift dress as well.

How about instead of Resolutions on this last day of 2012 we do a

Renegade Ruffle Refashion.

But first, I’d like to wish Jan a Happy Birthday!!! I’m so lucky to have such a loving, kind, and caring sister who, even though we live thousands of miles apart, is always there for me. She lifts me up when I’m down and encourages me every day.

Happy Birthday Jan! I love you!


I think the shirt says it all. She’s such a good friend to me now.

Here we are wearing, what we called, our matching ketchup and mustard dresses that mom  made for us. Jan’s dress was red, mine was yellow.

Ok, now, doesn’t everyone have a bathtub picture like this?

I just wish we lived closer to each other so I could throw on this newly…

Beautiful winter and nature photography. Thanks for sharing #Sethsnap


Come take a drive with me and I’ll show you my world.  We’ll see farms, trees and lots of land.  The birds will sing as the deer hurry past.  The windows will fog from all the talk while we round the bends and take the curves.  The snow will beckon and we will go.  We’ll make a snowmen, draw snow angels, eat snow-cream and even have a snowball fight.  When we are nearly frozen to death, we’ll head for the country cafe and warm ourselves with hot chocolate. We’ll order buckeyes and eat them until we are sky high and ready to explode from all the sugar.  Yes, please, come take a drive with me to 2013.  Happy New Year! May your 2013 be filled with new adventures and lots of love.

Priceless Handmade Holiday Decorations

14 Dec

Love these ideas!

ALEX Toys Official Blog

One of our family’s favorites Christmas activities is decorating our home. From the lights on the outside of the house, to the Christmas tree, to the stockings on the mantle, wherever you look you’ll see a piece of Christmas.

Each decoration holds a special part of our family’s Christmas spirit, and every year, we create at least one handmade decoration to add to our collection. Sometimes our handmade décor lasts only one year, while others become valued pieces that last from year to year, priceless pieces of our family history.

Kids love creating Christmas decorations, and there are so many quick and easy holiday décor projects that you can create with your children. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your own handmade holiday collection!

Project Pinterest: Christmas Card Photo Ideas

14 Dec

The Amateur Librarian

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  My clothesline photo gallery is filling up with holiday cards from friends and family!



Last year, I was totally on the ball when it came to Christmas cards.  Sam and I spent an afternoon at Crissy Field before Thanksgiving, and got (at least one) good picture of us in front of the Golden Gate Bridge for our card (and a whole bunch of bloopers).  By December 1st, the photo cards were ordered and the envelopes were addressed and ready to send.

This year, not so much.

We’re halfway through December and the cards have yet to be mailed.  We did get some good pictures during our trip to the Redwoods with my family over Thanksgiving, and one of them ended up in this year’s Christmas card… I am in the process of addressing them all now… more information on that…
