You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Collage Art on Canvas

Our internet was on the fritz – again – the past few days.  I have no idea what happens to it, but the wireless network just stops working.  And then my poor Husband has to listen to me whine about it until he reinstalls everything.  (Reinstalls?  Is that the correct term?  I don’t have a lot of interest in technology.

The “Art” of Toddler Gift Giving. . .You CANNOT Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes

My Mother-In-Law celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago. When Mac was born and I decided in true control freak fashion that I was going to take primary responsibility for psychologically damaging him and ruining his childhood, we knew we needed to reevaluate our budget. And along with that came a big shift in my own thinking about how we

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: “Postcard” Wall Art

As you are aware, I’m engaging in some serious front-line trench warfare with our house. It’s not the house’s fault.  A series of events including an unwanted guest (basement mold) a few years ago, and the addition of one toddler plus another on the way has made our previous living arrangements less than ideal these days.

My Mother-In-Law celebrated her birthday with us last evening.  We took Mac and our nephew to the pool and then we had dinner and cake.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Board Book Memory Album

I have a paper problem.  I hoard reams of it.  Magazine clippings, little admissions tickets, maps, brochures, quotes I’ve scribbled on the backs of envelopes. . .I like to keep all this junk because I am always intending to include it in our photo albums, memory books, boxes, journals, etc. I like me some memories. . .

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Kid’s Step-Stool Upgrade

Over the weekend, one of my friends stopped by with some toys for Mac.  Her son is 4 and had a few items that he was no longer using and she was generous enough to offer them to Mac. One of the items was a little green plastic step-stool. Later that evening, I looked at the stool with some disdain.

You Can Accomplish This Before Your Effing Head Explodes: Good Words Wall Art

I have a problem with walls.  I don’t like them bare.  My Husband claims we are just a few wall hangings away from this place becoming a damned TGI Fridays. Whatever. I like what I like.
