Eight Productivity Tips for Bloggers

Eight Productivity Tips for Bloggers

For this week's List it Tuesday post, I decided to talk about something that has really been on my mind lately while I toil away at trying to get my new website ready.  That new site is my attempt at greater productivity (and more sanity), as it will be merging all of my sites into one. I decided to not only tackle the topic of productivity for bloggers, but I decided to only write as much as I … [Read more...]

List it Tuesday: April 15th

I've had such a busy day and have been working until nearly exhausted (seriously - I almost fell asleep last night with the computer in my lap) on the new site, that I just pretty much forgot about List it Tuesday.  I'm so glad to have Kris doing the link up now with me too. But, in case you were waiting for it here, here's the link up for today: An InLinkz Link-up … [Read more...]

Convincing Siri to Play Let it Go for Me in Six Steps

Asking Siri to Play Let it Go

While I was cruising down the road, I thought, "Hey - I want to belt out 'Let it Go'" while I'm driving."  You know, because that's kind of how I roll when I drive.  I like to sing. Because I'm responsible while I'm driving, I didn't try to find the song myself, I decided to rely on Siri to find the song for me.  While I generally find Siri helpful, this was not one of those … [Read more...]

10 Signs that You are (or were) Serious about Scrapbooking

You Know You're a Scrapbooker When...

I don't really scrapbook anymore, although I did just pick up a bunch of Project Life stuff to try to use them with all of our Disney World pictures.  (Thanks to seeing my friend Kim put together a fabulous album rather quickly with one of the kits.)  But, back in the day (before blogging), scrapbooking was my thing. If you are currently a scrapbooker, or were into it in the past, you might … [Read more...]

How to Build a Teepee-Style Fairy House

How to Build a Teepee-Style Fairy House

Last fall, Molly became determined to build a fairy house. She watched videos about fairy houses, and schemed for how to make one in our yard. When it seemed that nobody would offer to help her, she used a small tree stump in our yard and decorated it with things like twigs, leaves, and acorn tops. She called it her “fairy habitat.” One day when she was gone, I even sprinkled glitter all over it, … [Read more...]

First Communion Cupcake Toppers Printable

First Communion Cupcake Toppers Printable

First Communion time is one of my favorite times of year.  I love watching the kids at our parish as they excitedly await receiving their first Holy Eucharist.  So, I thought it would be fun to make some free printable First Communion cupcake toppers. Of course, you could also use these cupcake toppers as First Communion stickers as well, if you just print them onto an adhesive/sticker paper.  … [Read more...]

10 Things I Just Don’t Do

10 Things I Just Don't Do

I wish that I was one of those Moms that wore pearls while she created elaborate meals in her pristine house.  She's the kind of Mom that lovingly shakes her head and sighs when her children misbehave.  She's the kind of Mom that has her act together.  I'm not that kind of Mom. Eric told me one night during our last Disney trip, "You're the best Mom." I said, "No, I'm not the best.  … [Read more...]
