My 4th of July Patriotic Makeup Fun

I had SO much fun doing this look- and quickly for the first time ever!

I had a choice.  I could either go to the fireworks for the 4th of July and be a wet blanket because I have managed to stay away from the crowds and boring fireworks year after year, or I could honor our son’s canceling his important day so we could all be together as a …

Want A Decadent Pie?

Capris Fudgey Gotta Have Pie

Well, today as the Homeschool Expo nears the end of a fourth and exciting day, I am once again thankful for all of the fun and exciting people I have met who understand what it is like to have the pressure of being at home and multi-tasking more than those who send their children out …

The Blogging Baby Is Born

Miss Grumpy Gills

You know, this blog has been a long time coming.   For some reason I have a mental block when it comes to blogging. I can build computers and have for years.  I can build basic web sites.  I can design some of the most intricate and complicated designs in clothing, jewelry and art, but when …
