Summer Lemon Wood Craft

When I create something, I like to think outside the box or in this case, outside the fruit. Does a lemon have to be all yellow?

I decided that a lemon doesn’t have to be all yellow. I can make it what I want and to match my yellow and pink porch decor.

I found everything I […]

Shark Kids Craft

In case you didn’t know. It is Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

I feel like this has become a holiday for America. Well, might as well get in on it because as my mom would say, If everyone’s parents allowed them to jump off a bridge, would I?

Be YOU tiful Summer Sign

This time of year you attend graduations, proms and the end of school. This time of year reminds me of the last few days of school when you are scrambling to get your yearbook signed. This makes me laugh because when I look back on my high school yearbook,  I love the ones that say, […]

She would read to us and it was my favorite thing. She […]
