So it is day 1 of my very first craft show and my booth is all set up....only 15 minutes past start time. A few people start walking by and looking at my items. It takes awhile before my mom and I realize these are all fellow vendors. Hmmm....will people who came here to MAKE money SPEND money too? Well, if they're anything like us, it's a definite YES. My mom is already scoping it out, Continue…Continue

As a former television news producer, this clip of Kermit the Frog, reporter, never fails to crack me up. In it, he is at the scene of breaking news - an ongoing, live accident scene. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall.
The kids love it because it's a nursery rhyme they know mixed in with with intense imagery, so that they are both familar with…

Before I go any further I need to admit something - I used to make fun of people who blog. I apologize if this explanation offends any of my fellow bloggers ;).
I just didn't get the point of blogging. My thought was, why do people think anyone cares about what they have to say? Talk about being full of it! I mean, it's one thing if you're sharing new data, known facts, you know, useful information.....it's another if you're just spouting out randomness.
I was really…

I had a bright idea one day.....since I have a few things to sew anyway AND there is a craft show coming up.....why not sew a few more and try to start a business? 4 months and hours upon hours of work later I'm realizing a little bit of talent and creativity does not a booming business make.
I managed to secure a booth last minute at my very first craft show the week of Thanksgiving. The 2-day show was scheduled for the second week of December. Even though I knew I had a lot of work to…
My son of fifteen behaved like a teen and disobeyed one of the house rules this past weekend. He's come to the stage were he will still do whatever he wants and calls me un-sympathetic towards him. I'ts crazy how they have done something wrong, yet they get you to feel unhappy, stressed, crazy and guilty. I'm working on that.
So,I've grounded him for two weeks , no friends, no games, NO COMPUTER.
But he thought he could outwit me by using the WI-FI on his phone. So we changed…Continue

Playing on Facebook can get you a job - I'm not talking about Farmville, though I'm sure there must be something for which those skills can be used. While Facebook is thought of by many as a way to pass the time, the social network has broad business applications if you use it right. And it's only one of many networking, aggregating, blogging and mini-blogging sites out there, all of which can be used to pad your resume.…

Social media has revolutionized what it means to be a mother. Sure, the basics of mothering remain the same throughout the ages, but with all the information of the internet at our fingertips, new theories catch steam quickly, unsafe practices are brought to light in front of large audiences, and people can pick and choose which parenting methods work best for them in real time, as these methods are being used and tested by others.
One of the largest drawbacks to staying at home…

Ways to Trick your Baby:
Problem: Congratulations! Your child is pooping in the potty! What could possibly be the problem there? Well, I don't know about you, but after years of wiping the stuff, cleaning the stuff, and otherwise handling it, I find nothing more gross than carrying it from the chamber pot to the actual toilet to flush. And, sometimes, it sticks. It sticks. It's something that just turns my stomach, and I don't know why, but I hate it.
