Every year I spend lots of time planning what to get my husband for Valentine’s Day. Something techie, something for daily use, something wearable. The possibilities are endless.
This year I wanted to make something different to give Mr. L. He used to have a designated place to keep his ring and watch. It’s been a while since he doesn’t have one. Here’s a jewelry dish easy enough to make and stunning enough to give to a special someone. (more…)
Valentine’s Day is everyday in my book. I love my girls and my husband, my family and friends. Spending time with them is one of my biggest joys.

A couple of years ago I started choosing a word for the year. I would normally create a board with the word I have chosen and images that inspires that particular word. In my kitchen I have a chalkboard for quick notes and I write my word in there too so I can see it constantly. The goal, for me, is to have accessible sight to the word I have chosen and things that reminds me “why” I chose that word.

I have been creating handbags for years and the learning process is just starting. Working with fabrics from my local craft store has been fun, but honestly I want something different.

November is here and Holiday parties are already starting to fill up our calendars. Make sure you never show up this season empty handed. Here are some ideas… get one of these adorable gifts and surprise your lovely hostess!
I have purchased The Purpose Driven Life’s book a while ago and when my friend’s birthday came by I gave it to her. At the moment it seemed like a great idea and I am sure it was the best gift for her, but I had realized I had not read the book myself. It makes me happy to hear her voice saying how much the book has blessed her life. I am positive it was the best decision ever and maybe that is why I had it saved for that long, it was just for her. Now it was time I got a copy for myself.
The Purpose-Driven Life takes the groundbreaking message of the award-winning Purpose-Driven Church and goes deeper, applying it to the lifestyle of individual Christians. This book helps readers understand God’s incredible plan for their lives. Warren enables them to see the big picture of what life is all about and begin to live the life God created them to live.
