Hello! My name is Shannon Taylor. I'm a long-time writer and editor from Minnesota surprised to find myself on an island in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, three younger children (the oldest is attending college in Chicago), and two dogs.

So what if instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

St. Patrick’s Pot O’ Gold Treasure Hunt / Weekend Links

{ image and design by Sara Schmutz }

One Charming Party is sharing a great idea by Sara Schmutz of Confetti Sunshine for St. Patrick’s Day. All you need to create a Pot O’ Gold treasure hunt are some chocolate gold coins, ice cream cups, and these free Pot O’ Gold printables. You can decorate the cups with the Pot O’ Gold labels and write clues to find the treasure on the four-leaf clover print-outs. What a fun idea.

Here are some more ideas to inspire you and (I hope) make you smile:

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Our spring break officially starts this afternoon. We’re not traveling anywhere, but instead will be tackling our first real decorating project since building the house eight years ago. We pretty much threw all our energy and resources into just getting the house built and haven’t done anything since then. But now we’re going to completely re-do the girls’ room. I’ll be gathering supplies this weekend (a friend told me I have to get Frog Tape for painting. Have you heard of it?) and then we’ll plunge into the project next week. I’m not a decorator (or a painter), so I’m a little nervous. But excited, too.

I hope you have a great weekend. Please come back next week where I’m sure I’ll have lots of ideas on what not to do when you’re decorating a room! Just kidding. (Or not.)
