OMGosh. I can’t believe they just commented that…..

Ok, I know you’ve seen them.  The comments on Facebook that are just so….. rude.  Mean spirited.  Downright nasty.  I’ve almost come to expect it on news pages with hot topics like politics or blogs like the famous Matt Walch’s. But more and more I am seeing hateful comments on decorating and painting sites.  “Creative” pages if […]

And then there was the time a girl pushed my son right off the playground equipment….

  So I can’t get this story out of my mind. And usually that means until I blog about it, it’s going to sit there….. bugging me like a strand of gray hair or a picture on my wall that I noticed is hung too high.  You understand. And so I write. And I hope […]

You still have time to make a Teacher Pail (a.k.a. “Brown Nosing Bucket”)

We have “Back to School Night” tonight!  So in typical “Jennifer style”….. I was making “teacher pails” or “teacher bucket gifts” for my kids’ new teachers….LAST NIGHT.  With just hours to spare.  Screeching in on 2 wheels.  I know some of you creatives can relate!  We work best last minute and under pressure.  EMBRACE IT if that’s […]

I know you see me sitting by the neighborhood pool in the summertime in the middle of the day.  And I know what you may be thinking…..”it sure must be nice to be self-employed”.  Or maybe “it must be nice to have other people out working for you while you relax”. LOL.  Grace, grace, grace […]

My baby goes to kindergarden. Another season of life.

My youngest child is starting kindergarten tomorrow. I thought I was fine with it. I have been telling friends that I have even felt guilty about how much I have been looking forward to it. for the last several months. I’ve said my girl is ready.  I’ve said I am ready.  I’ve been a part time working […]

For the Mommas who are trying to run a business….I know you.

First and foremost, this is a blog post to encourage mothers……all mothers.  Working mothers. Stay at home mothers. Part time working mothers.  Let’s build each other up ladies.  There is just no time for judgement and criticism from other moms whose journeys are different than ours.  Aren’t we all trying to do the very best […]

The struggles I am experiencing

You know how sometimes in life you go through a season of joy and laughter and everything seems to be going along so great? And then at other times you think, what the heck is happening here? Yeah, that’s the season I am in. And God never prepares you for it. Rather He refines you […]
