Friday Favorites–Happy Campers

Happy 4th of July (almost)!  With the holiday falling on a weekend, I would imagine that even more than the usual number of people will be filling campgrounds across the nation.  Unfortunately, I will not be among them.  But since I have to stay home, I thought I’d spend some time admiring some beautiful camp…

Friday Favorites–DIY 4th of July

As July 4th approaches, you’ll find fireworks stands on every corner, shopping carts full of hamburgers and hot dogs and the a sea of red, white and blue in the crafty corner of the internet.  This Independence Day holds special significance for me because as you’re reading this, my son is signing his enlistment papers…

Friday Favorites–Get Outside!

I love this time of year in my part of Oregon.  While we are usually still getting a little rain, when it’s nice, it’s VERY nice.  Not too hot, not too cold, and often there’s just a little bit of a breeze.  I love to sit outside on our deck, listen to the river go…

Friday Favorites–Father’s Day

It’s funny, when you think about making stuff for guys, it seems really difficult.  Things like flowers and much of the jewelry are generally out.  Good luck getting them to be happy about anything that could be described as pretty.  But every time I sit down to write about Father’s Day or gift ideas for…

Friday Favorites–Viva Las Vegas

I’m going on a sort-of vacation next week.  My husband has a conference to attend in Las Vegas, so I’ll be tagging along.  It’s been pretty stressful around here, mostly for good reasons, but exhausting all the same.  I was really excited to get away from everything for a few days, until I saw this:…

Friday Favorites–Creative Cash for Grads

One of the most popular editions of Friday Favorites I’ve done to date was this time last year when I focused on creative ways to give graduates the gift of a fatter wallet.  It seems like other people agree with my “cash is king” philosophy when it comes to giving to grads.  Fortunately I didn’t…

Friday Favorites–What’s Bugging You?

Living out in the country most of my life, I don’t have a big issue with bugs.  We aren’t buddies or anything, but we have an understanding – they stay out of my house and I let them live.  That goes for everyone except for the wasps.  I would probably burn my house down to…
