Wood Ornaments

Hello, lovelies! Tis the season! I never considered myself one of those crazy Christmas people that counts the amount of Friday’s left until Christmas. When October rolled around this year, though, I was ready to put up my tree. Maybe because here in Kentucky it has been a little cooler than usual this fall, butRead more

My Evening with Dracula

Hello, lovelies! Don’t you just love this time of year? The weather is cool (yay sweaters and boots!), the leaves are changing, and anything can be pumpkin. One thing that I love about this season is the traditions that I have developed for the season. Family traditions are extremely important, so important that as aRead more

What I Wish I Knew Before Getting a Doodle

Hello, lovelies! Take is Brady’s “gotcha” anniversary! A year ago today, my friend, Rachel, and I drove 10 hours round way to pick our little bundle of fur and attitude.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: Book Review from a Messy Person

Hello, lovelies! Long time no write. September and October seems to be an extremely busy time in the life of teachers, so I’ve not had a lot of time (and energy) to make AND write about it. Since last writing, I have been in a wedding, gone on a weekend retreat, and have gone toRead more

Labor Day Crochet

Good morning, lovelies! Hurricane Harvey has found Kentucky just in time for Labor Day weekend. I woke Saturday morning and felt fall at my doorstep. That’s not all I felt, though.

Hello, lovelies! I’m sharing a project that has been done for quite some time, but I haven’t gotten to share since school has started. Anyone that knows me, knows that since Cody got me a Silhouette Cameo last year, that I have been obsessed. In fact, in my 5 DIYs in August post, all ofRead more

My Five DIYs for August

Hello, lovelies! July was divine. Partially because I pursued a lot of my hobbies more. Although teachers don’t truly have summers off, I definitely took some “me” time in July. Though I didn’t even complete all of my goals for July, I thought I would sit down and share in inspirations for August. This month,Read more

Happy Birthday Harry Potter

Hello, lovelies! I just wanted to swing by and wish Harry Potter Happy Birthday! Today I celebrated by baking a cake (from a box), and wearing one of my favorite shirts as I ran errands. School is coming, and as summer winds down, so will my time to be able to make and create myRead more

New Job!

Hello, lovelies! Last summer there was a lot of big life changes that occurred in my life. I got engaged, I got a new job, and I moved. Fast forward to this summer. I guess it’s time for another slew of announcements. This time there are no engagements, and (thank goodness) no more moving. JustRead more
