SO beautiful!! Even w my few mistakes that I decided not to bother w fixing! But, alas, I’m going to wipe it all off. That is, after all, the fun of these chalkboards. I don’t want to buy an awesome sauce, top of the line board just to have it sit w my Holiday decor for most of the year! So I get to change it out as often as I want, and I can always reuse the exact same transfer the next time if I want it to look just like this again!
I've told some of ya'll about this book before, but it is one of my favorites and one that goes along with my purpose of being online in the first place, so well. I think that reading is so important for all of us to grow in all areas of life. If you are in business at all you should read business books, If you work a trade, read (especially new information) about your trade. Etc. As moms it's so hard to find time for yourself, but improving yourself is better for your who...le family. I am a firm believer that finding the right books benefits us in an enormous way. And this book is first on the list because it will help you to get to a place where you can find more time to read! It's called Say Goodbye to Survival Mode (By Crystal Paine) and I highly recommend it! (Bonus it's 54% off of retail at just over $10 right now!)
As is the case with a lot of what I post, this book is especially good for moms, but I believe is a beneficial read for women that aren't moms as well. Really it's great for anyone in the rut of "survival mode"!

#goodtoknow So don’t eat cake mix, or anything similar after its date! I had some bisquick that was past it’s date, that I figd was fine at one point. Glad I threw it out anyway!
Cake Mix Warning (not a joke)
Warning re: cake mixes - who knew?
I always thought that "old" mixes that were past their expiration date would just not rise/ba...ke correctly. This is scary!
Somebody wrote: 'Before my surgery I bought quite a few Duncan Hines cakes mixes that were on sale. A couple of months ago I decided to use one, I checked the e expiration date and found it past, all the boxes were past the expiration date.
I phoned Duncan Hinds to ask if the one that was only two months passed if it was OK. She told me in no uncertain words to throw them all out, she even said to open the boxes and throw the mix in the garbage, just in case someone picked it up and used it.
Cake Mixes & Toxins- **PLEASE READ** Pass this on to ALL in your address book. You never know whose life you may save by doing so. For those of you at work, PLEASE remember to check your cupboards when you get home tonight!!!
A student at HBHS (high school) had pancakes this week and it almost became fatal. His Mom (registered nurse) made him pancakes, dropped him off at school and headed to play tennis. She never takes her cell phone on the court but did this time ; and her son called to say he was having trouble breathing. She told him to go to the nurse immediately and proceeded to call school and alert the nurse.
The nurse called the paramedics and they were there in 3 minutes and worked on the boy all the way to the hospital. He came so close to dying. Evidently this is more common then I ever knew. Check the expiration dates on packages like pancakes and cake mixes that have yeast which over time develop spores.
Apparently, the mold that forms in old mixes can be toxic! Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix, brownie mixes, Bisquick, cake & cookie mixes, etc., you have in your home.
P.S. Tell this to your children, grandchildren, nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps these types of mixes in the cupboard.
This warning especially applies to those with mold allergies!

Good morning!! Just wanted to pop in and say have a great day! I think starting off with some laughter to brighten our day would be great! Comment with a GIF about what you have to do today! I found two that look a lot like what I do all day! They’re in the comments! 🙂
This is hilarious! Of course I was cringing like “No, don’t put that on your face! Your poor skin!...” But still. So funny!!
So we talked about Make and takes. And gettin together to make something crafty is so much fun, and very therapeutic. But... for those of you that don’t live close to me, or just can’t squeeze out the time to plan a get together... let’s talk FaceBook party!! 🎉
So here’s how it works; you invite some friends (we do it tactfully, not spammy.😉) and we set up an event or a private group. It will start at a set time and last about an hour and a half. I post a few projects, how t...o’s, etc to explain how the products work. To wrap it up I go live at the end and demo another quick project and/or answer questions, and chat! It’s a lot of fun, you get some free goodies from me for hosting, AND you don’t have to get out of your pjs!
There’s an additional prize that your friends will get to enter to win by commenting, ordering, etc! I’ll go live again in the group to randomly select that winner after we close the party.
I’m currently available for FB party’s in January on the 10th-11th, 17th-19th, and 24th-26th. But let me know asap!
Good morning friends!!! Has your new year got off to the start you had hoped for? I’m still in the process of planning my year and getting everything together, although I had hoped to be all set by the first. But that’s ok, I’m gettin it done! The worst part for me has been gettin up early on school mornings again after break! 😳For real, it’s killin me!! 😫 But I’ll manage. Anyway, it’s another fresh Monday of another new week! Think of the end of the week, and what you would like to have accomplished by then. The days will go by regardless, so let’s be intentional this week and rock it!! 👊🏻We got this!
I just may as well hit share every time I see one of her videos, even before I watch it! Bc I always love um!!
So dude, I still have a few of my tiaras from my younger days... I think I need to get um out. I didn’t realize just how much I’ve earned to wear one! I mean like, day after day people!! And bonus for me, I get the fun of cleaning little people poop at the SAME TIME as the fun of a teenager temporarily hating me! Oh yeah... I may as well get all the tiaras out I can find and just stack um on my head!! 😳👊🏻
