Collecting data in style

Articulation-(1)

I’m always looking for extra paper and never keep my data in one spot. I’ve always been too lazy (not lazy, just busy) to make my own collection sheets. But I got tired of searching for the data I collected. Recently I’ve started designing my own data collection sheets to fit my specific kids’ needs.… read more »

Here is my advertisement for this free DIY project. Are you tired of being around folks who use big words that leave you puzzled and confused (and quite frankly make you think they used it in the wrong context?).

This little hobby of mine started in 2005. It came and went. I got more and more into it and spent all of my loan money from college on it trying to get a business started selling my jewelry. I put stuff up on Etsy, sold a few things. Then, I signed up for a… read more »

Birds Hanging on Twine

This might be the simplest decoration ever constructed! First, choose your paper. I made this decoration for a baby shower and copied the bedding. You can either use a cricut (like I did) or find a stencil or find a template of what you want to cut out online, print it, cut it out and… read more »

Meet Porter, Bandit, and Rigby!   Porter, the Yorkinese (have you figured out the parents yet?) started out as this gal’s mom’s pup. Yorkies have always been a popular pooch in our family.… read more »

State your nature

home sweet home

This little ol’ hobby started with a camera and some wilderness. My man and I started taking pictures of things out and about that looked somewhat like letters. Some letters are way difficult to find, a.k.a the letter Q. We got really into it, and focused much of our time prettying up the letters and… read more »
