How to Stay Inspired to Blog
If you are a blogger you have most likely had that moment when you opened up a blank  post and that little cursor stairs at you.  The little blinking line taunts you, “write something…anything!” 

Owl Smash Cake (Updated) from Frugal Mom Eh!

Owl Smash Cake

I decided to redo my Owl Smash Cake tutorial with better pictures and fix the mistakes I made the first time.  This Owl Smash Cake really is so easy to make that I just made it again to redo the pictures

Turkey and Brie Grilled Cheese

from Dizzy Busy and Hungry

Turkey and Brie Grilled Cheese | DizzyBusyandHungry.com #grilledcheese #turkey #brie
Grilled cheese is definitely a favorite in my house.  How can you not like toasty, crunchy, cheesy hand-held sammies? I love finding new and delicious ways to make grilled cheese, from varying the type of cheese, to incorporating meats or vegetables, and even adding spreads or other condiments.


quick berry crisp
I make a lot of recipes that call for different pie fillings! Depending on the season they can be hard to find and some are more expensive then others. With berry picking season in full bloom, I thought I would try making my own! I was surprised at how simple it is to make and after adding a little bit of this and that I created this thick, warm, sweet, bursting with fresh blueberries pie filling! With only 6 ingredients this blueberry pie filling was less expensive and made more than store bought. Ready your mason jars and get ready to can some amazing pie filling!

How To Freeze Fresh Farm Eggs

This time of year is just crazy in my neck of the woods. Between everything in the garden ripening at the same time, the chickens laying eggs like it’s going out of style and it being our favorite time to go camping I am BUSY! It is a given that household chores have been pushed to the waist side. I am trying to be ok with that. But canning and preserving foods in a messy house drives me nuts! Ok let’s be honest here, being in a messy house no matter what I am doing drives me nuts!

If you're like me, I hate to look for stuff in my pantry. Not sure if I have it there or not, missing it and purchasing more only to find it again and notice it is out of date. aughhh!!!

My old Dodge pickup is rusting. Trying to restore the rusting parts piece by piece, hoping to keep it in good condition, my handy husband went to his favorite salvage yard in search of a fender. He called me when he found one and said, "I've got a fender and there is an old kitchen step stool seat thing here that is getting thrown out. It's really rough. Is it something you are interested in trying to fix up?"  I said "YES! Please and thank you!"

Look What's New


A couple of weeks ago I was browsing on ebay and I found this cute
gingham pitcher by Crown Burslem.  It is still wearing it's little
 Union Jack sticker which I plan to peel off but thought it would be
 fun in the pic.  I love gingham and can never pass it up.  It was
a bargain too which always seals a deal.


Oreo Cookies Torte.JPG
In Greece, we buy our desserts mainly from pastry shops that carry a variety of sweets mainly influenced by the French and the Italian ones. Of course they sell traditional Greek ones, but the majority of people prefer to buy the ones that are made according to French or Italian standards.

Today I am delighted to present my 1st refashion a real adventure! 
I love jeans and have long wanted to make a very practical bag. Some time ago, a friend gave me a pair of jeans speckled with small beads. So, from a pair of pants were born a bag with wicker handles, a purse and still have leftovers fabric. Frogged, I did some tests, I lined with polka dot fabric, made a sprig of flowers and loved the result! 
And what do you think? 

I hope you have been encouraged to slow down a bit and consider the blessings of life all around you. It's a constant struggle for me to slow down, and I have to remind myself often to refocus my mind.

I hope you have been encouraged to slow down a bit and consider the blessings of life all around you. It's a constant struggle for me to slow down, and I have to remind myself often to refocus my mind. I'm grateful for the opportunity to do that here, and to share it with you. 


We are really blessed in our house to have the space for a playroom. It’s a first floor master bedroom with a bathroom and small walk-in closet. Since we wanted to be on the same floor as Carl, we opted to stay upstairs. The only problem with our playroom is it is completely bare (except for the billions tons of toys). 

Laptop and iPad Messenger Bag by Gina's Craft Corner (pattern by Sew Sweetness)

Yes, it is another Kennedy Bag!  I just love this pattern by Sarah Lawson from Sew Sweetness.  It is actually a free pattern she offers, so check it out!  I always feel so satisfied when I am finished with one of these bags.  The buckles still frustrate me a bit, but it is all worth it! 




Photo Chore Chart
I am a firm believer in teaching kids responsibility and that can be done from a very young age. My little guy is three and we have just started introducing jobs to him. He has been expected to do them for awhile now, but I really wanted to create a visual reminder for him. He can’t read yet, so a typical chart was out of the question. I started with clip-art but it just didn’t seam specific enough for me!

  16. I guess I was too tired & fell asleep before leaving my comment last night! I have ALWAYS kept a lookout for one of those stair stepper stools! My parents best friends had one when I was a child & I've always wanted one!

    I too am interested in where the Giveaway Pinterest group board is, since I have a giveaway this time!

    And last but not least, thank you for the link party!
