Kid Sized Chores

So I have a little one who is 2.5 years old and I figured it was time to get him introduced to chores; that IS why I had him.  I wanted to make him a kid friendly chore chart to make his daily chores more fun.  I originally thought I’d start from scratch, since I am a graphic designer and all, but decided why waste the time when certainly [...]

Happy Holidays!

Tis the season to be jolly!!  Christmas is almost here and this is definitely the most prepared I have been for the holidays in years.  It feels good to have extra time to enjoy shopping and decorating and baking.  I have only 2 weeks left as a professional web designer before I start my new, full time stay at home mom gig!  For the last 2.5 [...]

Hello Indianapolis!! I’m So Glad to Be Here Tonight!!

It’s holiday season once again and time to put up the decorations.  This year I wanted to come up with a new way to easily display the cards we receive.  This crafty idea takes about 2 minutes to create and about 2 seconds hang each card. Buy some fun holiday ribbon and some mini clothespins; I picked the Grinch of course! J  Tape (or 3m [...]

Let them eat CAKE!

So I love to do all sorts of crafts, but my main craft is cake decorating.  I have a website with my cakes posted which can be found at  I’ve been a hobbyist cake decorator since I was a teenager, but I’ve really gotten into it over the last 6 years.  On average I make 1 cake a month for customers (usually [...]

Hi! A little about me.

Hello Everyone! This is my first stab at a blog.  I figure why not have a place to share any fun crafts I create with the world.  I’m sure I’ll also post a few things about my family here too.  Please check back often to see the latest thing I’ve created.  We’ve been working on redecorating our house, so I have plenty [...]
