We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

DIY Chalkboard Buffet Labels

Liz Stanley at Say Yes to Hoboken has posted a great DIY chalkboard buffet labels project. We had a Fall Soup Party years ago and I’m thinking of hosting another one just so I can use these labels. What I like most about Liz’s clever and creative projects is they’re simple enough that I can actually do them. You can find directions¬†here.

Here are some links for the weekend. Have a great one and I hope to see you back on Monday!
