Baby Scrapbook

Back in spring, I found out that my best friend of 21 years is pregnant. After the shock wore off, I realized I had to do something huge for her. Wellโ€ฆ not huge; meaningful. I thought about making a baby blanket like I have for a lot of my friendsโ€™ kids. But knowing her family,Continue reading “Baby Scrapbook”

Annual Holiday Posters

This week, Jarod and I have spent a lot of time in the car working with a client over an hour away. We were chatting about what to do one night when we got home and I gave a few options: 1) hop in the craft room and create something, 2) game night, 3) anContinue reading “Annual Holiday Posters”

Homemade Syrup

If you follow my blog, youโ€™ll see that I took a little break. Work got really busy (thank goodness) and I kept forgetting to take time and craftโ€ฆ or take pictures and write about it. Luckily, I decided months ago that I was going to take my whole birthday weekend off since it aligns withContinue reading “Homemade Syrup”

Hanging Crystals

If you read my last post, youโ€™ll know Iโ€™m focusing a lot more on being intentional in my actions. And if you havenโ€™t, you should go check that out. Anywho, while Iโ€™m on this journey Iโ€™m trying anything I can to focus my energy where I want it to go. The other night, I wasContinue reading “Hanging Crystals”

Feng Shui Me

Lately Iโ€™ve been doing everything I can to change the energy around me. Iโ€™ve been purposeful about who I talk to and when, making sure I take breaks from work and clients, and overall just trying to be more intentional about my actions. The last couple of weeks, Iโ€™ve hit a rut. My energy isContinue reading “Feng Shui Me”

Monday Motivational Meeting

When I was in college, I was lucky to meet a lot of wonderful people. I didnโ€™t meet anyone I truly connected with until the last couple of years when we were delving more into the details of engineering and spending a lot of time in the labs. As we realized our โ€œfunโ€ time wasContinue reading “Monday Motivational Meeting”

Birthday Celebrations!

When my boyfriend and I first started talking, he told me he has never had anyone make a big deal about his birthday. He is used to planning everything himself and hasnโ€™t ever been pamperedโ€ฆ so my goal this year is to change that. I picked 7 gifts that I knew he would like (5Continue reading “Birthday Celebrations!”

Non-billable Hours

I was thinking long and hard about what I would post this week. I knew it would be really full with clients. On a normal week, I try to see clients 3-4 days out of the week. It doesnโ€™t seem like a lot, especially based off of a normal work day โ€“ but it is.Continue reading “Non-billable Hours”

Tub Tray

If you read Tuesdayโ€™s post, youโ€™ll know that most of my past two weekends were taken up with tearing apart and putting down a new deck. I was expecting to take a break from crafting and catch up on sleep and reading around work this weekโ€ฆ but Jarod had different ideas. On Monday, we bothContinue reading “Tub Tray”

Bad Day Remedies

Wednesday was a bad day. One of those days where I had to force myself to see the good things because there were so many little things going wrong. I could have easily dealt with one or two of these things happening, but itโ€™s like I didnโ€™t have time to recover. They werenโ€™t even thatContinue reading “Bad Day Remedies”
