foto friday 5 {curacao memories}

Happy Friday!

I’ve shared with you the adventures that have been my first week back from vacation here and here.  So to say I haven’t really been out and about taking pictures of my daily activity is a bit of a no brainer.

But I thought it would be fun and a welcome reason to not get back to my filing to go through the pictures from my first month or so in Curacao and show you the sites as my husband showed them to me.  We had a lot of fun just meandering all around, checking out back roads and finding hidden gems.  I hope you enjoy!




The next three pictures are in and around the quarantine house and fort that we can see from our roof.

And this shot is from a hike up Mt. Cristoffel.  We have so many little bays filled with beautiful turquoise water, they never cease to amaze me.

Now, back to filing … well, I actually think I’m going to check out more of the project inspiration linked up here first, what’s a little more procrastination, right?!?  😉

I posted on facebook that I’ve actually started a little file cabinet upgrade, of the actual cabinet itself … I’d love your guesses on what I’m doing.  Hmmmmm, what in the world could it be?!?! 🙂

Enjoy your weekend!

Holy moly!  How fun was the It’s a Cinch party?  If you haven’t linked up yet, we’re looking for your easy peasy, super simple tips and projects here.  The party is open until midnight Friday…there are some seriously ingenious ideas that you should definitely check out.  You’ll also be seeing many of them on Facebook and Pinterest, and I’ll be doing a whole feature post next Tuesday.  🙂

I tell you, all of the cool stuff you guys do makes me wonder what I’m doing blogging about a hair brush.  :/

And, thank you, thank you for the wonderful response to the Pass It On project.  It has been truly incredible.

If you’d like to create your own Pass It On project please just email me for the button code and with any other questions you might have.  At the suggestion of one smart friend of mine, I have also created a Pass It On project Pinterest board and am pinning everyone’s projects I know about…so please, please, please let me know if you decide to Pass It On.

Ok…now remember how the tax peeps have been crimping my style for the past week? Well, I also have this baby to blame. (more…)

It’s {not always} a Cinch: a link party

Hey y’all!!

I’m back!  Vacation was fantastic!  Loved it so much!

Fun times with a great family, adorable nephew, funny brother, sister-in-law who thought the strike through was showing my blog mistakes.  (Sure do love you Bonnie!!)

And too many “just blog about it” jokes to go around.  My sweet, sweet mother didn’t even come to my defense…apparently I have a bit of a blog audition going on here, too.

Sure do love you family.  🙂

And … after vacation … it’s always fun to be at the gate in the airport going to Curacao  … when I’m heading home.  Smile.

So, there’s really no complaining here.

But have you ever had those days when you thought you would be getting all crafty. (more…)

my voice

Are you watching the show The Voice?

I am in love with it.

I love the concept.

I love the coaching.

I love Blake Shelton.

And I have a new found love for Adam Levine.

I mean, a man covered in tattoos, wearing a chunky cardigan … something about that combo I. am. loving.

I do have a thing for juxtaposition.

But what I really love…

…is watching people follow their dreams.

Giving it their all.

Putting themselves totally out there with nothing but themselves, and their talent.

It gives me goosebumps…it brings tears to my eyes.

Standing in a fighting ring, belting it out against someone else with the same dream.

It makes me wonder…what is my wildest dream?

And, if I had the opportunity to pursue it, in a ring … competing with someone else with the exact same dream … and only one of us could succeed in that moment … would I hit the high note?

And you?  Do you ever wonder that?  Or wonder about something else entirely?

And … in contemplating my wildest dream, our little breadbox covered in random tile doesn’t seem so significant.  But we already knew that, didn’t we … or we wouldn’t be living here.  🙂

And, please be sure to read the word “awesome” sarcastically wherever you see it in this post.

(These pictures were all taken before move in day in December 2009 … we were granted early access to do some painting and cleaning.)

And have you done any super simple projects lately?  Hopefully I’ll see you at the It’s a Cinch link party on Tuesday.

The Pass It On Project

Wow!  I have been waiting for this day for. like. ever!

Remember when the idea of 12 Days of Kindness literally woke me up one night?

Well, I’ve been tossing around ideas for carrying on the kindness since then.  And I came up with something I am in love with!

Update:  As everyone is posting about their projects I am adding links at the end of this post so you can all follow the journey.

dog lovers unite

Happy Monday y’all!

I am still on my little Florida vacation but I just wanted to introduce you to a fun blog I know.
Gotta love a gal who has the cutest dogs …

… and is super crafty.

TGIF!

Well, for you anyway.  I’m on vacation so the specific day of the week is really irrelevant to me.

Ironic that the week I’m on vacation I actually get the order of the days of the week straight for the first time in 3 weeks.  Exhibit A and Exhibit B that I am not always playing with a full deck.  :/

Aaaanyway…since I am still on vacation I thought a few fun vacation pictures would be in order.  But I’m going to go back in time a bit and take you to Argentina … October 2010. (more…)
