Pinterest and One More Good Thing

I know, it's been OVER a year since I've posted to my blog. No excuses, life just moves fast these days and as Ferris said, if you don't slow down and enjoy it, you might miss something. Well, I'm not missing much but I'm not slowing down to write about it.

Over the past year, like many others, I've become completely addicted to a little website called Pinterest. I don't know which I enjoy more, the recipes or the DIY stuff. I've made my own laundry soap, cooked all kinds of new foods, C.A.S.E.d any number of craft projects and worked on organizing my home via someone else's plans. Time and time again, I find myself drawn to one blog that I never tire of.

If you haven't yet checked out One Good Thing By Jillie, I highly recommend you stop whatever you are doing and go there now. I promise you will not regret it. Thanks to Jillie, I've made my own laundry soap. I haven't used fabric softener in over a year, and I have my homemade cooking spray in the kitchen. This doesn't even begin to touch the tip of the iceberg of information you'll find with Jillie. So don't walk, RUN to her blog and see what you find that will simplify your life!  Oh, and you are welcome!  (Because I know you'll thank me later. ;o))

My apologies

After a lot of careful thought and consideration, I have removed my links and affiliation with Your Handwriting, Your Font. While I still believe that Dana is one of the very best people to create your personalized font, she has become overwhelmed with requests and some personal issues and is way behind on delivery. I feel certain that with sufficient time to recover and catch up on past orders, she will be back in business. Until that time, I don't feel comfortable recommending her service to my followers.

If you have ordered and not received your fonts, please contact Dana via email and request an update. Unfortunately, I don't have a phone number for her, only an email address.

Estrogen Therapy . . . . . Ahhhhhhhhh

Most of the time we are Wives, Moms, Daughters, Sisters, Aunts, Taxi Drivers, part-time teachers, cooks, laundry ladies, yard maintenance experts, shopping professionals and every once in a while, just women. But a couple of times a year we get together and turn into giggling girls. We ditch the makeup, wear our fun PJs and we tell stories, eat too much dinner and still find room for cookies, sip a glass of wine and play with paper, ink, glue, stickers and most important of all, our cherished photos. I know I've mentioned it before but dang I love scrapbooking retreats! Remember how it feels to laugh so hard that no noise is coming out of your mouth? Laughing so hard that you're really truly afraid you might wet your pants? Smiling so much your face hurts? Giggling late into the night. Getting so tickled that you look at your friends and just one word sets you all off again. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love these girls.

And here we are:
