Friday Finds- featuring NestaHome, and a GIVEAWAY!

Okay, awhile ago I shared with you guys my new found addiction to ETSY.  Everyday I am so incredibly tempted to buy something.  You know what keeps me in check? My husband.  He rules with an iron clad fist. 
Okay, that's a lie, but I know he would be really unhappy if I went into debt because I couldn't stop buying handmade goodies.
I found another lovely Etsy shop last month and knew I had to share them with you.  …

Impulse Buys

So again I went a couple of days without blogging, but this time I had a better reason than I was just busy with other stuff. 



I accidentally knocked my husband's laptop off the couch and broke the screen. UGH, I felt terrible. Luckily for me, or us, it was still under warranty.  So he wasn't too mad at me. Actually he wasn't mad at all. I have a great husband everyone. The best.



He took it to Best Buy today and was told it would take probably 2-3 weeks till we got it…

A little MacGuyver inspired photo shoot

Feels like I haven't I haven't posted all weekend.  Oh wait, I haven't. Sorry wonderful people who read my blog.  I've been working on a little side project that took up most of my free time this weekend. 



But today I thought I'd give you a tutorial on how to take some "product shots."  You know, pictures of things like jewelry or food or anything that you want to take  a photo of but you want it to have a white background and to be sitting on a white surface. Does this make sense?…

WANTED: RECIPES, YOU RECIPES

I recently started Stumbling. It's a fun and seriously addicting way to discover new sites, ones you would love or find interesting.  For some darn reason Stumble Upon has decided to torture me with amazing recipes. Desserts, pastas, steaks...



So I got an idea that would allow me to give in to temptation and blog about some awesome…

Got my craft on today! My nes crocheted headband

First off I would like to say that this wonderful project was not my own creation. Nope.  I went Stumbling around a few nights ago and found a great tutorial on how to make a crocheted headband. 



I am not a great crocheter (is that a word?). I learned how to crochet in High School from a friend.  She was able to teach me even though I am left handed. And she taught me how to crochet like a righty.  Yay for being… Continue

Blogging Goals and How can I create a better blog?

So do you guys have any blogging goals? I mean do you set goals for yourself as a blogger and then try to reach them?  Do you just blog for fun, or to relieve stress? Do you blog for work, are you a career blogger? Is that the real term?



I was just talking with my husband last night about how much this blog means to me and goals that I want to achieve.  F.Y.I. I have a lot of them.  I'll share a few of the "blog" ones with you.…

Do you ever have Mom failure moments?

You know, the times where you feel like you messed up, or forgot something really important about your child or their schedule? 



I just got a call from the Children's Hospital reminding me and giving me instructions for Levi's MRI appointment on Monday. Come again?  MRI? Monday?  Uh, okay...if you say so...wait, why wasn't I notified of this earlier?



Apparently I was notified, back in January. Just a few days after his two week post-op appointment.  At least that's what…

Egg Yolk Facial Anyone?

Okay so let me start off with this warning: This facial is a little messy, and my egg yolk covered face is more than a little comical.  Enjoy looking at my enlarged pores, and blemish filled face, knowing full well that your skin is probably way better than mine.



PRE FACIAL FACE:…

My Stella and Dot knock-off bracelet, with a tutorial

I haven't done a crafty project in a while, and I thought, "It's about time you did one, people are getting bored over here."



So here goes... my first attempt to make my own jewelry. (Other than that one time I thought I was cool in 8th grade and made myself a button bracelet. Haha. I was lame.)



I have been lusting over this bracelet from…

NEW and IMPROVED Blog Button

Okay, so you know how I posted a button, and linked back to the tutorial where I got it?  Yeah, turns out that my button didn't actually work. It probably was something I did wrong, not the tutorial. 



Well this morning a lovely lady, Kristy, from The Bonjour Family, gave me a link to her tutorial on how to make a button with a grab code.  I followed her simple…

Screw html code!! And everything that goes with it!!

Ugh, my brain is fried!  For the past 2 days I have been dabbling in learning how to make buttons, social media icons, and banners. As you can see I only succeeded in finishing one of those things...the banner. 



I thought I had made my own button with it's own grab code, but nope. Turns out the "tag" is broken. Which is lame computer language for you failed dumbie, try again. 



Right now my brain can't take anymore, so I most definitely will not be trying to make a button…

People of Our Park-Exhibit 1

ughgmmgmdmdofuh....



That's what I feel like doing as I think about how my day went.  It was never ending, or so it seemed. 



The littles were in full on crazy mode, Rian was not wanting to nap or be put down, and Levi was having a hard time with me paying so much attention to her.  I wasn't even able to follow through with my plan to hand make Justin's Valentine's Day card. 



I wanted so badly to go to the store and pick up something special for my man, but…
