Orange Dreamsicle

We are big fans of orange creamsicles in my house, so I thought it would be fun to make our own as a push pop!  These tangy, creamy treats are easy to make and perfect for those hot summer days!

In Memory of Jessica Ghawi

I did not know Jessica Ghawi personally, but having read her family's stories about her, I know I would have liked her. Her memorial service is Saturday, at a church not far from my home. I can't take her family's hurt away. I can't undo what's been done. But I can honor one of their requests: to share her story and shine a light on the way she lived, not how she died.

Ric Rac, Mod Podge, give your flops a new look!


These shoes started out as plain ol' $1 flip flops from Walmart.  With a little magic (ok, maybe just some craft supplies and a touch of ingenuity) I turned them into my new favorite footwear.

Getting to Know Me?



Don't laugh, but this post is going to be hard for me.
I don't really like talking about myself, and I tend to stick to just tutorials on my blog.
But two lovely fellow bloggers have nominated me for two awards,
so I'm going to play along.
I'll try not to bore you.
And, because I'm a teacher, there will be a quiz at the end of the post.
So take notes.
