NaNoWriMo 2016 Has Been Conquered!
Why do we participate in NaNo?  For me, it's the challenge.  I know I can do it.  I know I can write 50,000 words in a month.  If I didn't have to work 40 hours a week I could probably double or even triple that, but this is real life and not going to work ...

In Which, by some miracle, I've made it to Challenge #3
I won't say that I was waiting for the results of Challenge #2 with baited breath because honestly, I'd forgotten about it. When I got the email last week that the results for Challenge #2 were in I hit the link with dread, afraid of what I would see.  My p...

Castle Diaper Cake
Diaper cakes are a dime a dozen on Pinterest, so for my niece's baby shower, I decided to try my hand at it.  How hard could it be?  Well, plan to set aside at least two hours if it's your first time.  I'm sure the pros can knock one out in under an hour, b...

Colored Easter Deviled Eggs
Well, this is another idea I saw on Pinterest, and let's face it, Easter projects on Pinterest range from super elaborate to gluing some Peeps to cardboard.  But this is one project I saw, and well, it seemed like everyone was posting different pics of it, ...
