Got Broken Crayons? Make New Ones!

Got Broken Crayons? I sure do! Kids + Crayons = Broken Crayons. I am not a math genius, but that is one equation I know very, very well! One of my kids even decided that he was going to break every single crayon he owned just so he could fit them in a particular holder. …

Links for Food Bloggers

Some time last spring, RecipeGirl did a post of 150+ links for food bloggers. She said it contained “everything you needed to know”.  She’s right! I am not strictly a food blogger, but I do like to share some recipes and food reviews. So, I started scrolling through her list. RecipeGirl’s list is for beginners …

Over the past two summers, I’ve been getting to know my sewing machine. Mind you, I’ve had it for about 9 years. I can’t do anything fancy like sew myself a wardrobe or anything, but I can thread the bobbin and sew a straight line, sorta. I started with a pillow case for my son’s …
