How I Rejuvenate with a Little “Me Time”

Recently, I returned from a huge social media conference in San Diego that I attended for work. It was my first trip to America's Finest City and it's gorgeous! I took walks at the end of the day to unwind and process everything I learned that day. Social media is always changing and it's sometimes a lot to keep up with, but it's a big part of my job and I need to stay on top of it. When I got back home I was feeling a little overwhelmed … [Read more...]

How to Paint a Pillow and a Giveaway!

And then when I do finally decide on a color, I can't find a pattern that I like in that color. Sigh. So when I found out … [Read more...]

(Polder's Old World Market provided the handcrafted utensils, but the opinions … [Read more...]

Hugs and Hearts $550 Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

What are some of your favorite Valentine's Day memories? I have to be honest and say that I most enjoyed the parties we had at grade school.

Image courtesy of Karen Horton on Flickr It was so much fun opening each Valentine while eating cupcakes that some of … [Read more...]
