Well, the last night of summer is fast approaching, and I’m feeling sentimental about the end of another summer with my kids. While I was thinking about all this last week, I got an idea that I am happy to share with all of you. This little idea is not based on a family tradition, but is a new idea that I will be trying in my home on the last night of summer. I thought you might like it too!
So, when my three children crawl into bed on that last exciting night before starting a new…
The beach. The boardwalk. The ghosts… All Sara wants is to be “normal,” but her paranormal abilities make that difficult. And, now that she’s moving across the country to an old New Jersey shore town filled with ghosts, things are getting worse. Because this time, she doesn’t just see the ghosts, she can hear them, too.

So, my almost two-year-old has shown a lot of interest in video games recently. Probably because they are on more than TV shows in our house. Yes, we are the dreaded gamer parents. I mean, it kind of had to happen, and there are more and more all the time as all of us 90's kids start having kids.
And I have to admit, I haven't really got to any of the hard stuff yet, like really explicit or violent games that she plays or wants to play but she's… Continue

As I approach a higher number of followers, I've actually been getting some advertising requests from some work-at-home-moms. I am flattered and excited moms would chose my humble little blog for some ad space AND be willing to pay for it. I will have ad space available when I reach some more followers. And I want to make it clear that I will never charge for ad space. See the thing is, I already have my own business, and I feel very strongly that I want to keep my blog as just my… Continue

I always feel like I jumped into this being an entrepreneur thing backwards. Because I started it up, then let it run, now I'm going to school to better my business. I guess it's kind of how I've done most things in my life, leap before I look! Although, that's not always a bad thing, I learn quickly and there's no better training than hands-on,… Continue

One of the first inclinations I had that made me feel like a writer was when I found inspiration hitting me at the most inconvenient times. Like 2 o'clock in the morning for example. And you just can't shake the feeling that you have to get this out or it will be lost forever in the abyss of your mind.
So I get up out of bed and drag myself to my computer and log in to Blogger (okay...and Facebook) and then I stare at a blank screen for 15 minutes.…
Have you ever done a room makeover or decorated your home or office and then found yourself stuck when deciding on artwork for your walls? Have you ever taken a really great photo and wished you could have it blown up and printed so you could…
It's time to get some more action happening with my Creative Memories business. My time is ticking for me to qualify properly, and i'm *slightly* starting to worry. So far i've been doing as much as I can without having to spend a fortune (that isn't there yet... YET!) but it doesn't seem like its enough.
I've done a letterbox drop, done one lot of markets - just waiting on the next lot of cheaper stalls to come up on the calendar and I started up a Facebook group (if your on… Continue
