Creative Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Moms today are hipper, more active, and younger at heart than our moms were at “that age”. So why give them the same old Mother’s Day gift? This year Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 14. Put some thought into it now, and you just may be able to surprise your mom with the perfect gift. Instead of falling back on the standard Mother’s Day present of flowers, give her something as unique and special as she is. After all, she’s your mom. She’s always been there for you regardless of what she had going on in her own life, and she’s always put your needs before hers. Give her something worthy of … [Read more...]

Stock Up & Save for the Holidays with OREO Walmart Coupons Deal

Can you believe Christmas is only 6 weeks away?

OREO is part of our Christmas Eve tradition, and it's actually a tradition carried over from my own childhood. We bake … [Read more...]

Holiday Gift Guides, Threenager Mayhem, and the Frazzled Mama

I do believe my Keurig hates me right now. I have slept much too little this week, drank way too much coffee, and my accomplishments are waning.

How I Staged an Autumn Theme with Oriental Trading

I love exploring yard sales, but we don't see very many near my house in such a rural area, at least not community type yard sales. I jumped at the chance to participate in a community yard sale with some of my family this weekend. I find they are great ways to get some of the clutter out of my house while also doing a little networking for our vinyl designs and woodworking business. This particular community sale is setup more like a craft fair. There is a theme, and everyone decorates their yard. This year's theme was super easy, Autumn. I want to show you how I incorporated my handmade … [Read more...]
