"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."


When I hear this I think of little children. How do you teach children? By involving them, doing hands on activities, reminding them many times.


"A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed up by action makes your dreams come true."


I don't know about you but I want all my dreams to come true.  I've started writing down goals and making a plan and I can tell a huge difference on what I accomplish throughout the day.

You Are Destined For Greatness


You are beautiful, smart, talented and deserve everything the world has to offer.  YOU are destined for greatness.

"Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly, on a broomstick, we are flexible like that"



Women learn to be flexible between kids, spouses and life in general.  I guess we learned flexibility to the next level (;

DIY Framed Spooning Decor




For the last several weeks I’ve seen many different versions of this project on Pinterest. I of course, wanted to make one to.  I think it is hilarious and adorable!  I think it is perfect for any gift (birthday, anniversary, wedding etc.) and would be a great addition for your own home.  I made this one as a gift but plan to make another one for my kitchen since it is so easy, cheap and cute! 

I could never find a very good tutorial of how to create this on Pinterest, so (like most of my projects), I created my own method.  This is how I made it:

Step 1:  Gather Supplies
  • Frame
  • 2 Spoons
  • Background Paper (optional)
  • Printed Saying
  • Hot Glue or other strong glue
  • Tape or Glue (if you don't want to use hot glue on papers)
  • Scissors
 
Step 2: Cut Out Both the Background Paper and Printed Saying

I found it easiest to plan where I wanted to place the saying before cutting them out.  That way I could make sure to do it the right size.  I also printed out several different sizes of my saying because I wasn't sure how big I wanted them to be.  I decided to use crafting scissors to create a fun border but you can do whichever way you would like.

Step 3:  Tape or Glue Papers to the Background of the Frame

I decided to use tape so that I could move them around if I needed to.



Step 4:  Hot Glue Spoons to Back of Frame

Hot glue both the bottom handle of the spoon and the rounded part (where you eat from) using a generous amount of glue.  Press and hold for a few seconds to make sure it will hold. 

The End Result

 I think this turned out great and I can't wait to give it as a gift!

"Reach as high as you can, and then reach a little higher. There you will find magic and possiblity. And maybe even cookies."


Dreams only happen as work towards them, stretch yourself and reach high.  It is just an extra bonus for some delicious cookies!

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as you'll die today"


I love this quote! Anytime I hear it the Nickelback song "If today was your last day" plays in my head. Every day is worth living.  So what will you do today too make it worth it?
