The weather.

I love winter! It's my favorite time of the year. Seeing the evening sky get a slight purple hue and the magical snow fall slowly to cover the earth with a soft blanket changes everything in my world. There is a quiet yet exciting element that comes with the change of snow. Here it is almost May and we had snow fall around my home. It didn't stay, but it was beautiful.

You never know what the weather is going to be here. It's like life. You can plan every day for something that's coming, but life will change right in front of your eyes. So you change the way you view things, change the way you react. Plan no matter what and always know that it's going to change.

Life, like the weather changes on its own. It adds variety and excitement. So enjoy it a little more.


Did you know that walking around barefoot can still make your carpet dirty? The oils from your skin attract dirt and then it rubs off into the carpet. By wearing socks or slippers it helps to keep your floors cleaner. So if you have a "no shoes allowed" rule, provide socks or slippers for your guests that are barefoot. Cozy socks in a basket by the door can make it more inviting.

Here is a picture of children's slippers that I am going to be selling.

Whether your green or not...

Did you know that used dryer sheets make great dusting rags? (the static properties help the dust cling to the dryer sheet). Just another great way to recycle!

Recycling and conserving energy can be easy and cost effective. It's not about making a big "scene" when doing your part, it's more about making a difference. Small things such as using reusable shopping bags and carpooling can be simple, even if carpooling is done just one day out of the week.

Another great way to recycle is to use old jars and containers to make musical instruments for the children in your life. Simply adding beads or beans and some glue can make an afternoon of fun and excitement.

The Quilt -A Legacy of Memories

Here is the Quilt that I made for a couple who have been married for 40 years. I loved doing it. Full of memories and love! Each block has a story! They told me each block is like living the stories and memories each time. This is such a great way to share your memories with your family and friends!

Here are some of the things that I do.


I have finished the a fore mentioned quilt and pictures will be following shortly. This past week has been filled with adventures with family. Always remember to take time out for family. The time spent with family adds so much to the projects that you create around you.

Today I give you one tip. Did you know that spraying wrinkled fabrics with water can help to remove wrinkles? Now if this fabric has been rolled up in a ball for a may want to break down and pull out the iron, but if you're in a bind try a spray bottle.
