About Me

My photo

I am a work from home, home schooling Mom who loves her Kids...yep, I think my kids are great. You will find me: Knitting, cross stitch, embroidery and working with felt are things I enjoy for fun. I also love to decorate and find deep satisfaction in decorating my home with great finds and my handmade items.  Gardening is one of my great loves, it like decorating outside!

Trinitys Ballerina Recital

My little ballerina had her first recital. And she was just so lovely I had to share it with everyone.

Santas Helpers


I tell my children that Santa has some extra special elves that do not live at the north pole. Some of them make gifts, some wrap gifts, some who are very special get to dress as Father Christmas and listen to children. We have a very special one that we visit every year, being an elf myself I recognize him as one of the top elves. I am a gift maker/wrapper elf. This elf really decks the halls, invites you to wonder around looking at the lights, take pictures, sit in his sleigh and even has a snow machine. You can see his home a mile or more down the road. He passes out candy canes to the children and hands an extra one to Mom for a child that's too shy to come and sit in his sleigh. He never asks for donations for the astronomical power bill I'm sure he has. But we joyously give this special top notch elf an envelope with something to help with the Georgia power envelope. And we think its well worth it. If you live in the Atlanta area and want to visit him he is on Brookwood Dr SW, Austell. Take the East West Connector head South on Brookwood Dr SW (Near Hobby Lobby) Cross over Anderson Mill Rd and he will be on your left. He also has parking set up.

The Happiest Holloween

I think we had way too much fun...but the star of the show was Alex and his Robot Costume. He had it complete with flashing lights, head lights and tail lights. People stopped him to take his picture...he was very proud. But not as proud as his sister was...she usually gets all the attention, but not Halloween night. She kept on whispering to me " I'm so happy for Alex, everyone thinks his costume is the best." Me in my wicked witchiness was please with the spell I cast over my family to have the Wickedest of Wicked nights. Because it was sooooo WICKED.

Labor day Celebration

Being a Home schooling Mom I had to turn Labor day into an opportunity. ..well of course.
And I learned a few things myself.
I learned the change in the horrible work conditions was brought on by one person Peter McGuire. And that the first Union organized was National Union of Carpenters, in Chicago.
Last but not least is a traditional picnic meal for Labor day...Oh you know I was all over that.
OK I said food, I know your expecting some scrumptious vittles. And I do mean scrumptious.
Daddy on his Third Bowl

Irish Stew, homemade bread and apple pie is the traditional Labor day picnic.  Workers and celebrants enjoyed the first labor day on September 5, 1882. 
The feast
And I LABORED in the kitchen all morning...with some little helpers. A blanket was laid, dishes brought out and the workers and celebrators feasted.
Workers at rest
Then I LABORED after wards cleaning everything up. But fun was had by all...me and my little family.

Sweetwater - Hiking

We are fortunate enough to live five minutes from Sweetwater State Park it is full of hiking trails, history and nature. It is one of the best places to home school...Nature is the best class room.
The kids and I headed out Monday with a full back pack, cameras and armed with curiosity.
I could chatter on about the beauty, the earthy smell and the joy of spending such a day with my children but a picture says a thousand words...and Alex and I have quite a few photo's to share.
The rest of the photo's are through the eye's of Alex my Artist...he really sees the beauty of nature.
