Hallmark Christmas Movie Addict

It finally dawned on me that I am addicted to Hallmark movies. I guess I have known it all along, but now I'm owning it.

Butterfly Mobile

I saw this post a few days ago from my friend over at and I just couldn’t stop thinking about how cute this project was, so I decided to share it. This can be made up in any colors of your choice to match your decor, and the butterflies switched out for little animals or birds. The perfect craft to do together with a child.

The Best Fruit Fly Trap EVER!

Fruit flies aren't like regular flies, where you can grab a fly swatter or rolled newspaper, swat the fly and the fly-be-gone. Nah, fruit flies are tiny little things that are too small and too quick to kill that way. And too irritating to ignore. I have battled fruit flies off and on for years, and have… Continue reading The Best Fruit Fly Trap EVER!
