As Big as the Moon

Crafting has always been second nature to me. I can make something out of nothing. I love to create things and go through the process and then sit back and look at the end results and say…Wow! I made that. I find the most joy over making things that cost me little or nothing to make or create. Not because I am a cheap person but, to just show myself how creative and inventive I can be. When I was a little girl, I had a best friend that lived across the street from us. Her Mother sewed and she would make clothes for all of them to wear to Church. I remember going over on Saturday’s and Aunt...

The Unseen Airborne Attack of Summer

   So, it’s that time of year when the weather is beginning to warm up and most people are turning their air conditioners on full blast.

There’s No Way…

  Ever have a day when something happens and you just say… “There’s No Way” It was a beautiful summer day and the birds were singing and the sky was blue like the ocean. It would have been a wonderful day to go to the beach and rest and relax and sip on a few diet cokes (insert wink).  Instead I went to work, because every day has the potential to be an exciting day at my job. I work with some awesome people and many of them have become good friends of mine. This story is about a coworker/friend of mine that I named “Sprinkles”....
