My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's house and got a tour of her lovely backyard. Nestled in the gorgeous flowerbed was a tiny house with a stone path and a small arbor, a few little toadstools and a teeny tiny bouquet of flowers. I asked my friend and she told me it was her granddaughter's fairy garden, a fun little something they do together. I...

As more and more birthdays pass, life seems to get more and more predictable.  Where's the excitement?  Where's the spontaneity?  When I turned 30, I realized that I was eating at the same restaurants, driving the same routes, and doing the same routine everyday.  I needed to spice things up!  There were SO MANY things I wanted/needed to...

Finding inexpensive indoor family activities can sometimes be difficult, and often leads to the same old "movie and popcorn night". While we enjoy a movie and popcorn as much as the next family, I am always looking for something else. When I saw this brilliant idea from my sister, I knew I had to try it out. She bought a large piece of...

Spring is in the air, so what do my kids want to do?? Fly A Kite! It is definitely kite season.  Just yesterday at Costco they were selling the cutest kites.  My girls wanted to buy one so bad, but they didn't have enough money. So we did the next best thing--I told them we could make our own for cheaper and take them to the park and get some...

Climbing tress, riding bikes, hop scotch, and monkey bars were all things that I loved to do on a daily basis as a child. I am afraid many of these things are being replaced with electronic devices and our children are not moving enough! According to research, the amount of physical activity since the turn of the century has declined 75%!...

 Gold is making a huge comeback in fashion, beauty and the interior design world. If you ask my kids, they will tell you that gold is my favorite color.  Gold can pretty much go with anything.  I remember when we bought our first home in 2003 every door knob, faucet and kitchen item had to be stainless steel.  Even my jewelry had to be...

  It is true. I am a dreamer.  Ever since I can remember I would dream about what I wanted my life LOOK like...where I wanted TO BE... and what I wanted my life would FEEL like.  No wonder New Year's eve is my favorite holiday.
