Dry Nails in Water? {Pin Tested Tuesdays}

I love Pinterest. I am obsessed with Pinterest. There are so many great and inspiring ideas on there, and some of the things I have never heard of or even considered. I also like seeing “nailed it” series of people who post pictures of them trying out something they saw on Pinterest. Here is a good example from Redomestication Magazine. I thought I would post my successes and fails that I’ve had trying out things...

FREE Macro Images to Print

We started having issues with our computer in June, and in July we learned that the computer most likely melted our harddrive because the fan wasn’t working well. However, instead of just replacing the harddrive (which is under warranty), they would do little tweaks to see if that changed things. I got back from vacation on Monday and went to start using my computer that was finally “fixed”, only to find that it is spazzing...

Improving Me Challenge

Recently I confessed that I am not the best homemaker in the world. I have always struggled with being organized and clean, but I have always wanted to be both. When I talked to my husband Jim about wanting to change he was very positive and supportive. Originally I was just planning on coming up with some family rules and a cleaning schedule to keep our home cleaner. However, that isn’t where our discussion ended....

I have been struggling with being a good homemaker since the day I left my home and went to college. I don’t enjoy cooking. I don’t enjoy cleaning. And I am not a tidy person.  All deadly sins when...

Father’s Day Decoration Crafts {DIY Craft Ideas}

Cortney, at Better Mom Blog, celebrated Father’s Day in style by making some cute and easy Father’s Day decorations.

The tie toppers were made by cutting out a tie design out of paper and then glueing a ring of elastic...
