"Hello. My Name is Elayne and I'm an Addict"

"Hi. My name is Elayne and I'm an addict"... Isn't that what people say at 12 step meetings?  Well, I think  I need to find one as I have discovered the wonderful, time-eating, totally addictive world of Pinterest.No longer do I have time to scrap or stamp or create or cook or eat or watch TV or clean or do laundry or even worry about what my 3 kids (all grown) might be up too.  No time to suffer through empty nest syndrome (daughter just moved out)and certainly no time to go to the gym.Nope, I…See More

"Wow, Elayne!  Congratulations on your exciting new journey!  My oldest is a freshman in high school and my youngest is only 6 months old, so I've got a ways to go for the empty nest thing, but it's certainly on my mind already!…"

Creating a Sympathy Card and Saying Good-Bye

If you're anything like me, making sympathy cards is not at the top of your list of favorite things to do.When someone loses a loved one or a pet, one of the ways we let them know that we’re thinking about them is by sending them a  sympathy card.I have a little ritual I began when I started hand-making my own sympathy cards. I turn on some music that reminds me of  the person who has passed  away, light a candle and then use the time I'm creating  to say good-bye.I try to think about all of…See More

I Broke A Promise To My Daughter's Birth Mother

This past Sunday I told my oldest child that I was thinking about going to church.  I don’t go often. She asked me in a very serious voice to be sure to pray for her sister.  I was surprised by this and jokingly asked her if she wanted me to pray for her sisters soul.  She said “Yeah mommy”.  I asked her why and she told me that when the girls attended a memorial service for a…See More

stirring up old memories during a country drive

Last week I met my sister in Illinois to visit our Aunt and Uncle. While we were growing up, they lived way out in the country, in the middle of acres and acres of corn fields, in a beautiful white farm house. One of my favorite places was the old barn.  Even though it was scary at night, I still remember the smell of the hay, gasoline and fresh soil.The ride out to the house was just beautiful.  Not a cloud in the sky, crisp fall air and long, winding, quiet roads.When we got to the house, we…See More

are you ready to talk about it? i am. i was bullied.

Last found hanging in his backyard by his sister.  He was only 14 years old and had just started high school.  He left behind a family, friends and people that cared. He also left behind a bunch of kids that spent a great deal of time doing everything they could to make him miserable. They bullied him, taunted him, brought him to tears and eventually, drove him to take his own…See More

I paid extra for shipping to make sure it got…See More

My Life Long Love of Dollhouse Miniatures

Posted on April 4, 2012 at 9:04pm 0 Comments

My love affair with all things miniature began when I was 10 and spent the summer with my Aunt and Uncle.

The little girl across the street had the most amazing miniature dollhouse. I had never seen unlike it before, and haven't seen anything like it since. Crafted by her grandfather and completely lit and furnished, we played with it for hours on end.

I've always dreamed of having my own miniature dollhouse and a few years ago my husband surprised me with a beautiful Cape-Cod…
