I think Organizing has reached an all new high this year, what with us spending so much time at home.  I mean, after securing a stash of toilet paper and getting the sourdough bread starter going, what else to do during this Covid season except work from home and organize your closets?  

Except for me.  My friend, Michelle, got me organizing my drawers and closets as a New Year's resolution (one drawer a w...

My friend, Jenni, used to say that whatever you do on New Year's Day sets the tone for your whole year.  One New Year's Day, she binge watched 24, and we wondered what this meant for her new year; perhaps she would pack a lot of action into every hour, watch someone named Kim make a lot of questionable choices, and her heart would race the entire time.

But her saying always made me thoughtful about ho...

Not everything in life is hard right now.  A lot of things are, but this cake isn’t one of them.  

So … this is a post about my Easy Italian Cream Cake.  And I feel a little weird posting it right now. The recent hubbub over Tina Fey’s sheet-cake sketch in the wake of Charlottesville has my social media feeds full of folks smarting at the suggestion that we should just ignore these racists and neo-nazis and, we...

Ahh, Summer.  The Carols say that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but teachers know better.  It's summer. With Christmas vacation a close second.  That last month of school is always a little bit killer.  I mean, it's one thing to remind a kid to put his snack in his cubby in October, but when it's May and the kid is still wandering 'round the classroom with a Ziplog bag of Goldfish in his mouth l...

Well, it's been an impressive gap of time since my last post.  I wonder what I've been doing for the past month.  Running secret missions to exotic parts of the world?  Looking ravishing in a collection of gorgeous scarves while conducting secret tete a tetes with Very Important People?  Cooking up a storm of casseroles and crock pot meals and filling  my freezer in case of apocalypse? 

Um,...

Ooh, I love room renovating - moving furniture, picking out paint, visiting a fabric store till you're on a first name basis with the good folks who work there.  And no one does it better than DIY Maven, Guest Blogger, and dear friend, Ann.

A couple of months ago, Ann mentioned that she was redoing her bedroom.  This was on top of completely changing the colors of her house.  Ann has always had this modern, dramatic...

Pay no mind to the bowl of mac & cheese; this is not the recipe you are not looking for.

My kiddos are totally thrilled that I'm on a quest for the perfect saucy mac & cheese.  This recipe was fine, but I'm still tinkering.  It's missing depth.  Or something.

Anyway... check out the uber cute framed pics.  I moved into our new house 2 years ago, and I  must confess that I went a little cra-cra on Etsy....

Meet my friend, Ann, DIY Maven Extraordinaire!  Whenever Ann sees cool decor or art in a magazine, she thinks, "I can do that."  As opposed to me.  I think, "I wonder where I can buy that."...
