🎶What Are You Doing New Years Eve?🎶

Twenty-seven years ago Chris and I had our first real date on New Years Eve. Somebody we knew had a party at the old Hotel Bentley in downtown Alexandria. Quite a few glasses of  champagne and a New Years Eve kiss and the rest is history! It’s been a long time since we celebrated New… Continue reading 🎶What Are You Doing New Years Eve?🎶

I Shook My Family Tree and a Bunch of Nuts Fell Out! 

I had a great “crafternoon”on Friday with these crazies! We made Christmas slime… Shrinky dink ornaments… (Even Steph got in on the action!) And snowmen tealight ornaments and Christmas tags! Whew! Ellie, Millie and Haylan  made a tutorial for the snowmen tealights! One take, these girls are pros! They even did a little facepainting… Of… Continue reading I Shook My Family Tree and a Bunch of Nuts Fell Out!

What’s Up My Witches?!

We don’t usually get many trick or treaters on Halloween, but I decorated anyway. I like to see it when I come home! I really need to paint my front door, but it goes with the spooky decor. I even let it overflow to the dining room… Then I went to visit the Chapman Blondies… Continue reading What’s Up My Witches?!

I always decorated when my boys were little, but when my youngest started high school and then football started…well, decorating for holidays took a back seat! I was inspired to decorate this year after I received my Just For Fun Rubber Stamps (JFFRS) in the mail. These two are… Continue reading Les Chats Noirs!

Meditating with my Gnomie!

I have a weird sense of humor. I laugh out loud at commercials. My mom said when I was little I would run from the next room, just to watch my favorites, and then go back to play. My youngest son will watch me, not the TV, waiting for me to start howling laughing on… Continue reading Meditating with my Gnomie!

In Case of Zom-bees!

I have always been a little afraid of the dark. My grandparent’s house had a long hallway that stretched the length of the house and the light switches were at either end. At night, that hallway was pitch black. My grandfather would wait at the end of the hall until you were halfway, switch the… Continue reading In Case of Zom-bees!
