With only about two weeks to go until Christmas 2013, we’re going to take some time to enjoy our friends and family. Dean is still working everyday, but the kids and I are going to bake, craft, play and laugh together. I’ve got them preparing a list – one movie and one board/card game to […]

By this post title you may think I’m confused. Or scatter-brained. Or completely lacking in marbles. But I promise Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, a door-turned-table, the Fall Homeshow and an Upcycle Challenge all relate to each other! _____ Last month we received an email asking us to participate in The Fall Home Show’s Ultimate […]
