"Hi there Stephanie here one of your friendly blog stalkers. WhenI first decided to start blogging I started following a blog called U Create. I found this blog to cover so much in the DIY world and better yet just about everything that comes out of this blog is bright, colorful, and inspiring!!!! Head on over and check out U Create for yourself!!!!!  http://www.u-createcrafts.com/

I love crochet, that's no secret! But crochet in my life is limited! What do I mean?? Well, I have a few hats, a few tops, and a few items that are not yet complete that are just for me but that's it! No crochet blanket, no slippers, no hot pads or scrubbies... so when I found this article from Moogly, I had to share it with you all! The post is about 10 FREE crochet curtain patterns. Love, love, LOVE #3 on her list... and #10!!! Hilarious!!!! One day, I will have crocheted curtains! What kind of crochet do you make for yourself?http://www.mooglyblog.com/10-free-crochet-curtain-patterns/

This months Blog find was one of desperation. Having 2 boys who both spend way to much time on electronics, I needed a solution. I wanted to incorporate a chore chart but not pay them for doing things like brushing teeth or making bed. Homework is a must but I would give time on tablets for doing it without whining (oh anything to stop the whining). I found lots of blog posts but the one I liked the most was yourownhomestore.com. I am still finding my way around the system we are putting into place but I am so excited for trying it out. So far my 7 yr old has chipped in more around the house and even has more completed that his 10 yr old brother. If you are finding yourself at a loss for finding a happy median between the tv, tablets, game systems, and just plain old legos, check out this blog post: http://www.yourownhomestore.com/family-store-and-chore-system/
Thank you for following us and looking forward to next months finds....
Until next month,
Stephanie, Lisa, & Crystal

Meet My Twin!!!




HAPPY MARCH!!!!! 

I don't know about you but I for one am so happy that winter is starting to wind down and Spring is almost here. 



So over the past couple years I have started networking and growing my relationships with other businesses. I have met so many amazing people through doing this and have become close friends with a handful of them. I didn't have a sister growing up so it is a lot of fun to be able to talk to someone with such similar interests.

About a year ago while having a conversation in one of my network groups I found out I had a twin. No...not the biological kind but the Birthday kind!!!!!!!! That is right one of my crafting "sisters" shares the same birthday with me. How awesome is that.

There is something to be said about finding someone that not only understands what it is like to juggle our families and our crafts but that can share in a celebration of life with you. I am over joyed to introduce you to my Birthday Twin!!!

Meredith from 8 Little Monkeys is honestly such an amazing person to me. Between everything she does for her family and her business I am not sure where she find the time. On a personal level I look up to her as a mother because she is so strong and selfless. I can only pray that I am that strong. I could not be more honored to share my Birthday with anyone else.

Meredith and I will be celebrating the whole month so stay tuned for more details on giveaways, sales, and whatever else we conjure up this month!!!!!!!!!!! We are looking forward to sharing our day with you!
