Out of Town

It's nice to be spontaneous sometimes! Forget the laundry and cleaning and go out of town!

To admire natural beauty,

(while I admire that great curl!)

Visit some cows,

Take a hike,

Do some fishing,

Enjoy bugs, strawberries, and bare feet,

Two thumbs up for a weekend getaway!

Green Tip: Week 1

This is the first in a weekly green tip post! Gotta stay true to my name!

#1 - Keep wrapping and bags from gifts to use again and again!

Such an easy earth and money saving idea!

(I contemplated including a photo of my stash....but I didn't want to scare you all away!)

DIY Pregnant Belly Chime

To the newest member of the Mothers Day tribe.......

A simple charm to soothe the baby inside

I originally wanted to buy this charm from Nova Natural Toys, but alas, I forgot :)

So I decided to be creative and visit my local bead store, Mama's Minerals, and create my own!

Super simple process, and beautiful results!!

Take four chimes and two small rings (the key chain type)

Connect the rings to the top of a pendant

Add the Hook and Eye on the back and voila! a beautiful gift for a mother to be!!

Enjoy beautiful Mama!
