Quick Update Time: I made a couple other comp notebook covers for Christmas gifts, so I updated the original post with a few more pics. (See post here!) But don’t worry, I won’t make you click that link if you don’t want to. Here are a couple more pics: This is such a quick… Continue reading Update! DIY Journal Cover
Let’s check in on some works in progress! I usually have some kind of crafty project going on (sometimes a few) but I usually wait until it’s finished to share on the blog… but this seems like a fun idea, so I’m jumping on board Freshly Pieced’s linky party.

The big blank wall has been begging for art ever since we moved in. In all its glory: After quite a few deliberations, I finally settled on an arrangement. It was… Continue reading Collections and Collages
Last year I put together my top 10 favorite books, with the qualification that I had to have actually read them recently, not just childhood favorites that I vaguely remember as being awesome (because re-reading old favorites can sometimes be a rude awakening, am I right?). It’s probably a good time to revisit the list every… Continue reading Top Ten Favorite Books… Updated!
Happy MLK Day! I do not have the day off… but hubby does… so I’m trying not to feel too jealous. But the most exciting news comes from the cat world: we have a new water bowl. A fancy fountain of a water bowl! The old bowl wasn’t up to snuff – it got pretty… Continue reading Meow Monday: Water Feature
