I wonder if my laughter was slightly too hysterical when I saw this cartoon. But it hits a little close to home, doesn’t it?
We had such a nice weekend and enjoyed minimal driving. How about you? Did you do anything special for Memorial Day? I sometimes miss life in the city, but small towns sure [...]
Here’s another teacher gift idea for you. I first saw these customized hand-soap bottles on Design Mom (go figure!) last year and liked how they turned out so much, we’re doing them again this year. I like how they have that “how did you do that?” feel to them.
I’m giving you links to two different [...]
That title’s a bit of a mouthful, isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but when I’ve been going nonstop for days and days and then finally get a day where I don’t have to be anywhere it can be really hard to motivate myself to get moving. Would the world end if I surfed [...]

Teachers are constantly washing their hands at school, so I hope they’ll find the lotion useful. You can find the directions [...]
Don’t you love this colorful balloon banner? Design Mom made one for her daughter’s first birthday and shares the how-to for making one yourself here. There are so many ways you could use this. Birthday parties, of course, but other events like bridal and baby showers, weddings, school carnivals, and high school graduations would be [...]
Hello, warm weather! Around here, hot days = popsicles. A box of store-bought fudgsicles are great, but if you want something special check out these chocolate cream pie pops. These are pudding pops and then some, with chunks of graham cracker crust and a creamy whipped topping/cream cheese layer. As you can see, ours aren’t [...]
