Teacher Appreciation (Free Printable)

By |May 2nd, 2012|

It’s “Teacher Appreciation Week” at Maddy’s school.  And to celebrate, I have a free printable for you!!

This is my first time creating a frame-able free printable, so I hope I did alright.  I created this picture with a pretty high resolution, so you can print it out in just about any size and it will still be crisp.  Simply click on the on the picture to enlarge it, save the bigger file, and print it any size you need it.  Thank you to The Graphics Fairy for the beautiful vintage hydrangea picture!!  I could spend all day browsing all the goodies she has.

Daddy’s Homemade Earth Day Hummingbird Nectar

By |April 18th, 2012|

My pops is a total green-thumb, and anything garden related is instinctual for him.  I guess that trait skips a generation though, because I have a habit of loving my plants to death.  I either drown them by overwatering, or fry them in what I consider a nice sunny spot, or strangle them in a small pot, or, or, or… My dad keeps trying teach me though, bless him.

Anyway, as well as being a gardening genius, daddy has a natural affinity for animals that frequent his green oasis.  This includes hummingbirds, as we have sat back and counted as many as 15 hummingbirds feeding at his many feeders at one time.  Yes, I know they are territorial – it’s actually kind of funny to watch them chase each other around.

As I’ve perused the blogosphere over the past few months, I’ve been seriously inspired by all the imaginative, creative people that turn the old into something new and beautiful.  (Seriously, just visit my “Reinvented & Repurposed” Pinterest board  if you want an afternoon full of creative motivation.)

With Earth Day just around the corner, I thought I’d dig into my recycling bin and pull out something beautiful.  And maybe I can help save the planet in some small way, too.  =]

The letter of the day on Sesame Street this morning was “M”.  Needless to say, Maddy had fun announcing words that start with that letter on the way to preschool.

“Monkey!  Magic!  Monster!”

“Maddy’s mommy is a matching maniac!”  Ok, I admit: […]

Los Rios Street, San Juan Capistrano

By |February 16th, 2012|

On the rare occasions that the hubs and I get a day to ourselves, I’m extremely happy to spend it playing tourist in our own towns.  Just give me some sunshine, a camera, and the company of the man I love and I’m a happy girl.  To me there is nothing more romantic than slowly carousing the streets and shops under his arm, giggling at his jokes and stopping every now and then to snap a picture or admire a cute boutique.  I don’t even insist on buying anything (although I can’t guarantee that I won’t want to create a knockoff version of what I see).
