My brothers had left the room to play Nintendo and I knew I had a good window to speak with her … Continue Reading..

Gray comfy pants, I’m going to miss you. I remember the day I bought you 10 years ago. You were 2 for $30 at Express. I bought a black pair too, but they didn’t fit like you.

I LOVE garage sales, thrift stores, estate sales Mom 2 Mom sales - anywhere I can find a deal. I might be an old lady trapped in a 27-year-old body, but I can't help myself...I'd much prefer repurpose something than buy it new. Plus, old stuff - especially when it comes to home decor - has SO much … Continue Reading..
I have loved making collages since I was a tween. Always a colorful child, I still can picture the one I scotch taped on my closet doors when I was 14…full of things like random ads, poems and words I would cut out of teen magazines. Now that I’m a mom, my collages have a more techy … Continue Reading..
