Easy Valentine Ceramic Ring Bowl Craft

*As an Oriental Trading ambassador I am provided with promotional products to facilitate my posts. I do not receive financial compensation.* Valentine's Day is officially 1 week away today. I let the kids decorate our "school room" a few weeks ago, and today we started Valentine-themed crafts. I had plans to have the girls make Valentine gift baskets for their aunts and grandmas, but sickness has put us behind on that. None of us have felt very well the last few weeks. Luckily, we have managed to stay away from the dreaded flu germs, but stomach bugs have kept us down. So, instead of baskets, … [Read more...]

How To Buy A Used Car That’s Right For Your Lifestyle

Sponsored Post. I am not a fan of big purchases, but sometimes it is inevitable. One such purchase we just cannot avoid is a reliable new car. In our case, it will be a new to us used car, but it is still a big purchase I can't take lightly. We don't buy a new car every couple of years. We don't upgrade just because we want to. We buy a new car because we have to. My car is sitting in the driveway with it's third blown transmission, and enough is enough! I'm thankful for a mechanically minded husband who can repair our vehicles, but I'm so tired of seeing this happening too many times a … [Read more...]

The #Etsy Seller’s #PSA : Why Processing Times Are Important

Okay, guys, it's time for me, an Etsy seller, to get real with customers. 99% of Etsy customers are great, and although I really hate putting out anything negative about that other 1%, sometimes something needs to be said.    Over the last few days I have dealt with multiple...too many to count on my fingers and toes...messages saying "oh, and I know your processing time is 5-10 days, but I need that shipped across the country in 2 days or I'll leave a bad review!" If the buyer had contacted me before purchase, I would kindly let that person know if it is possible or not to get an … [Read more...]

DIY Valentine’s Day Lei Wreath #orientaltrading #kidfriendly #kidcrafts

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador, I am provided with products to facilitate some of my crafting posts. I do not earn affiliate commissions through any of the links in this post. A quick snowstorm dropped about an inch of snow on us last night, and I spent the evening hours rearranging our lesson plans for today to accommodate the snow. I couldn't expect the girls to sit down calmly at their desks working on worksheets all morning with the elusive white stuff outside calling their names! After all, snow is usually a once or twice a year treat around here. So, we spent the morning enjoying … [Read more...]

I’ve Got a Bone to Pick With Mother Nature

One of my 2018 goals is to get back on track with blogging. So far, my year hasn't gotten off to a great start. Last week I sat down with my handy dandy notebook because I'm old school like that and have to write everything on paper first, and I planned out a month's worth of content I want to share. You know, doing things right and all that. Y'all, there's always something getting in the way of my plans. Yes, I did just pull out my Southern roots, but I'm ready to get real with Mother Nature. And when I get real, the twang is strong. This flip-flopping weather, arctic to fall-like temps … [Read more...]
