Crafty Idea #4 - Mod Podge Pockets

We've always had a bit of an issue with papers and receipts piling up because there just isn't a good place to store them. Our table and counter space was slowly being taken over by random bits of mail and other paperwork so I came up with a solution. And a fun, crafty one at that! I created some wall-hanging 'pockets' by gluing and taping various pieces of cardboard together.  I covered them in some beautiful card-stock and slathered on some Mod Podge to make them functional and attractive. The end result was just awesome, and I had a blast making them of course.





Here is Luke's Pocket already getting some use

My Summer Wardrobe Staple - The Skirt

One of the things I look forward to most during warm weather is being able to wear my skirts again.  I love wearing skirts because they are a fun, feminine, and non-restrictive way to keep cool during the summer months.   I have to admit that I don't look good in, or like to wear shorts.  I am quite obsessed with my growing collection of skirts however, and have just added another sweet find to my wardrobe.

My Two Guys Melting My Heart

Aren't they sweet?!!? 

The World is Blooming Around Me

All of the flowers and wild-flowers you see below are scattered throughout our new rental property.   It seems I am greeted by a new blooming flower every morning, and what a delightful start to the day.  I can't help but pick a small, fresh bouquet every couple of days to bring the beautiful colours indoors.










Fresh Green Bentos


I'm getting hungry just looking at these!

Circus - What a cute and curious Cat

Even though I don't post very many pictures of my cat, I do  take pictures of him every single day.  I have quite the collection going so I am going to put a few in this post. He is the sweetest, most adorable little guy but I have quite a hard time capturing his cuteness on camera. For every decent picture I happen to snap, there are 10 times as many 'bad' pictures that just don't seem to do him justice.I am going to start filiming videos of his antics in an attempt to accurately represent how awesome he really is. So stay tuned for some kitty videos, until then, here are some pictures:
