Small Failures, But a Big Success {and Happy News!}

I usually post yummy recipes and pretty projects. I don’t often speak about what’s going on in my life. But today I thought I’d share a few ups and downs that I’ve been going through. Life is full of surprises. Full of failures. Full of successes. I’ve learned that if I keep going, even if […]

Five Lessons I Learned At BYB 2015

Lessons learned at BYB 2015

Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a blog conference. I’m kind of a scaredy cat when it comes to traveling, but when conferences are in Salt Lake, I try to take advantage of them.

2015 Word of the Year- Renew

2015 Word of the Year: Renew

Getting a little more personal today. I don’t do that very often on this website. Probably not often enough. Here goes. I have always enjoyed seeing all the other bloggers write about a word for the year that they are going to focus on. But I have never done one of my own. This year […]

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the linky party is not live again this week. Arrrg. I have had major issues with my linky party provider!

I’m Late to the Instagram Party, But Come Join Me!


How many of you are using Instagram? When I attended the SNAP! conference last year, the cute Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. helped me install Instagram on my iphone. But after I got home, I kinda forgot about it, and I didn’t really use it for the rest of the year. Then I started using it again […]

Merry Christmas!


I am taking a blogging break this week to spend time with my crazy family. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with all of your loved ones! I’ll be back next week. I think. Unless I’m having too much fun. You know, cleaning up after Christmas and stuff like that.  😉 Here’s some […]
