Liebster Award!

Liebster Award!

My quaint and cozy blog has been nominated for a Liebster Award!  Actually it was a while ago.   I was so excited about it even though I’ve been such a busy body that it has taken me well over a month (let’s just go ahead and say two months) to post about it and nominate … Continue reading

Crafting is the Best Medicine

Crafting is the Best Medicine

I’ve learned so many crafts over the years.  The majority of them I’ve taught myself and others I’ve learned from other craft blogs, YouTube, and other crafty corners.  I’m in my zone when I’m crafting and it’s so relaxing especially after a hard day. The last few weeks have been beyond stressful. I think mental … Continue reading

National Telecommunications Week

National Telecommunications Week

I’m so excited about this week.  I’ve been a Police/911/Fire dispatcher for 5 years.   During National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, we dispatchers get all kind of goodies from just about everyone to show their appreciation for the job that we do.  I was 28 years old when I began and have been in love … Continue reading

Keep A Little To Yourself

Keep A Little To Yourself

Along with the ability to share your life with classmates, family,  and friends, came the annoying over sharing of food you are about to eat, drinks you are sipping on, and a load of TMI statuses!  It is beyond  annoying when someone just spills every little tad bit from each day of their life, like … Continue reading

Just Enjoy Life … Your Way

Just Enjoy Life … Your Way

I hate when people tell me and my husband, we never get out, or we never want to do anything.  I absolutely love our boring, to some, lifestyle and so does he.  I work so much, on top of my business, and it’s so relaxing to go grab some take-out and come home to a … Continue reading

The Greatest Relationship

The Greatest Relationship

The greatest relationship is when you can enjoy the similarities you share and respect your differences.  No matter how much you have in common with someone, the fact remains that no two people think the same way. I’ve learned so many different things because of mine and my husband’s differences. The differences you share are … Continue reading

Frankly, My Dear, I Don’t Give A Damn

Frankly, My Dear, I Don’t Give A Damn

We all have that one friend who is so focused on themselves, that they fail time and time again to be there for anyone else.  The friend that talks over you, makes your issue seem small so you can get back to their problems.  The friend that never lets you have a proud moment without finding … Continue reading

Advice Comes a Dime a Dozen

Advice Comes a Dime a Dozen

It’s amusing to me when some of my friends offer the, “Girl, I wouldn’t take that!”, advice to another friend having relationship problems when their track record for relationships is nowhere near that of a person who would be able to offer up some helpful advice on how to handle a situation. Continue reading

Free Pattern: Moogly’s Crochet Hanging Basket

Free Pattern: Moogly’s Crochet Hanging Basket

I’m terrible at organizing my things. Well let me rephrase that… I’m great at organizing.  It’s staying organized that’s the problem. I’ll have everything neatly in place and before the week is out my craft area and desk looks like a tornado hit it.  Now that I have my stash up, on yarns, I found … Continue reading

Southeast Texas Snow Day … Say What??

Southeast Texas Snow Day … Say What??

Two amazing things happened today… It snowed and I drove for the first time in the snow! I was absolutely scared and excited at the same time.  I can’t even remember the last time it snowed in Southeast Texas.  I watched it all take place from my 16-screen camera footage, all warm and toasty in … Continue reading

When It’s Cold Outside…

When It’s Cold Outside…

Put on a beanie and don’t forget your scarf! My goodness this Southeast Texas winter has chilled me to the bone.  We Texans can’t deal with this type of weather.  We are used to a mix of weather throughout the week, sometimes the day … none of this constant cold nonsense.   Here, something like … Continue reading
