Spring is coming to life

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Mother Nature has decided to go ahead and just lay spring on us with all her glory. Even the not so glorious stuff….mosquitos, wasps, pollen, oh the pollen!!  As much as I get frustrated with the usual nuisances I still have far more that I do love and enjoy about spring!!  my vegetable garden with my girls, sitting outside on the patio grillin’ it up with the hubs (with a tasty adult beverage of course) and just watching nature wake up from this supposed winter slumber (if you even want to call it that).

Necessity is the mother (father this time) of invention: MEN’S EDITION

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Like I said, necessity is the mother of invention, well at least in this case it is the father of invention.  This time Jeff was on a mission!!! As some of ya might already know, Jeff is a law enforcement officer…ya know the five-0, the po-po, the fuzz (he is gonna kill me for this haha), so he does not have the luxury of having an office (at least inside a structure).  Jeff’s office is mobile, yep, his patrol car.  Having to operate out of his trunk and passenger seat.

DIY Bottle Cap and Wine Cork Holder

Written by: Renee Reiter

Hey y’all! Did ya miss me?? Feels like it has been forever since I posted! I have been working hard on some 2017 goals that I had set for my vinyl business this year. But Jessica has been busy posting some amazing things; if you haven’t had a chance to check them out yet, be sure you do!

Okay, need to take you back to 2016 for a minute for this one. Yes, I know I have really been slack on posting my projects! Last year the hubby and I were overjoyed to hear that his brother’s girlfriend said “Yes” to the big question and that wedding plans were under way. I was honored when Brittany (his wife) asked me to make a few things in vinyl for the big day! One of the items I was lucky enough to help with were some boxes to hold the wine corks and bottle caps from the wedding reception.  Continue reading DIY Bottle Cap and Wine Cork Holder

A little lift is not a bad idea

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Like I say…a little lift never hurt anyone.  If anything it can make ya feel better, relieve any stress you may have had prior to the lift.  Lifts are a good idea…even in the bathroom.  Especially a girls bathroom….that is super small!! Did I mention this is a girls bathroom?  Geez girls can be sooo messy!! Continue reading A little lift is not a bad idea

One kid’s trash is a mom’s treasure….

Written by Jessica Chaffins

Since the south here has forgotten what winter is supposed to feel like, my girls have actally been outside a good bit lately….thank ya lowd!! With that comes the endless amounts of junk all over the yard….especially if it has busted.  It immediately finds a spot on the ground…to die. Then it becomes trash for mom or dad (hell even the dog) to do away with.  But not this time…. Continue reading One kid’s trash is a mom’s treasure….

READER BE WARNED….You are about to enter into the hidden caverns of our dinky little kitchen.  MY CABINETS ARE AWFUL LOOKING and very crowded.  So as I have mentioned before, I have to make the most of all the space I can.   And I am here to show you, again (I know….I’m a mom, I am entitled to nag a bit),  good posture matters.  Hopefully between my rig up here and my utensil canister from my previous post, Better Posture, this could help y’all out too.
