Before about 9pm at night, I'm acceptably together with my look. I shower every morning, put on trace amounts of make up, organize my hair (notice I didn't say style), and put on a casual but not frumpy outfit and earrings. Can you really ask much more from a mom of 2 small kids? I don't think so. Like midnight for Cinderella, around 9-10pm it all goes downhill… Continue

Music has been a part of us since the beginning of time and it has fascinated scientists for many centuries. It is all around us and affects our lives in innumerable ways, but do we know exactly how music has such a great power over us?
When you listen to music, your brain releases a chemical known as… Continue

La Lingua Della Cucina
The passion that Italians bring to the kitchen is reflected in the language that they use to describe techniques and individual ingredients or recipes. Since Americans first started cooking spaghetti and tomato sauce in their homes in the early part of the twentieth century, they have expanded their preparation… Continue

Our spiritual life is often see as a taboo subject in “polite company”, but why? Because we have differing opinions? Because it’s a topic people feel strongly about? Sure. But I take a different approach. I think it’s something that needs to be discussed more. It’s only in sharing this intimate part of our lives that we can grow and learn more. We are spiritual beings living in a physical body. Our self care routines must include taking care of that spiritual essence just as much as… Continue

A while ago, Wendy Williams was doing the Hot Topics segment on her show when she broke down in tears. What happened? She felt that her 13 yr. old son no longer liked her because he was spending a lot of time with his father and always "gets an attitude with… Continue

I love my baby boy Theo!! And when I found out I was having a boy I could not have been happier. He is the 7th Grandson for my father and from the minute I laid eyes on him I knew he was all me...(Sorry Peter) but that little angel looked just like his momma and still does. We were curious to find out the second time around as well. I know there are many people out there that think it is such a special surprise to wait but me and Peter like the fast track route. I rarely get a birthday gift,… Continue

Easy DIY Boot Cuffs
A FiberArtsy Tutorial
Well, since it’s too cold for me to work in my felting studio, I decided to play around with upcycling old sweaters.
I made christmas stockings for my family but since christmas is now behind us, I’ll leave that one for another day.
The first project in this series is Boot… Continue

I know I've eluded once or twice to the fact that my children aren't huge fans of sleep. At least during the baby stage anyway. So while I tend to err on the side of "attachment parenting" practices, I'll admit I've entertained the idea of allowing my child to cry it out one or two times (or 70ish, whatever), Continue
If I were to put aside my own reservations regarding that practice (which isn't that difficult once you've gone several days with intervals of sleep…

I remember the feeling like it was yesterday, but it was nearly 5 years ago. It was a stinging combination of physical pain, emotional pain and failure all wrapped up in one horrible package. It woke me from my sleep and brought me to tears at 3:30 in the morning. I woke CJ up, and told him I thought I was having a miscarriage.
CJ told me it was fine, and sat with me for a while while I called the doctor's office. They told me to go back to sleep and see them in the morning. Needless… Continue

Stop what you're doing and listen. What do you hear?
I hear the loud humming of snow blowers, scratching sounds of shovels, and my son coughing. If you watched yesterday's weather report, you'll guess I live on the east coast.
By showing you with one of the 5 senses instead of writing, I live in New England, you were able to figure it out. As writers, we can rely on our readers having a lifetime of stored information. As writers, we need to tap into that information to help the… Continue

Getting started is one of the toughest parts of getting organized. I want to give you a few tips and techniques that will help you with this process. I suggest that you ruminate over this part of the process for a little while before you start ripping open the closet doors and tossing things onto the bed.
Stop and think about WHY you want to get organized. The answer isn’t that you want a clean closet or a great looking entry way. The answer lies a bit deeper. Do you want to get… Continue

Phew, I think I went a little overboard this Valentine’s Day….what do you think? This is my last Valentine project and my last post of the day, I promise. :)
I have had an empty (and new) paint can in my “stash” for some time now. I picked it up at our local hardware store for a few…

Silhouette Cameo…Oh how I love thee….let me count the ways. I’m literally just heading out to my son’s class for his Valentine’s Day party, so this will be short and sweet!

(I just found out about this awesome post-promotion op here on Bloggy Moms. I know it's late in the day to promote my V-day post, but maybe some of you are in another time zone.
