Ahoy Facebook Pirates

I checked my facebook this afternoon and noticed a friends message saying that there is now an English Pirate language for your facebook page. Sure enough you can scroll right down to the bottom and click on whichever language you have yours on and change it to English (Pirate) beta! How cool is that? SO cool if you ask me me hearties! It says all sorts of ridiculous things like.....

If you have a facebook page and have a few minutes just give it a try and see how happy something this stupid and silly can make you feel. It really made my day for no good reason at all other than I like talking like a pirate.



Speaking of pirates, my son Braden got these adorable pirate washcloths from Wry Baby for the tub from his Grandma Kuhr. It will match perfectly his Backyardagans Pirate Ship for a bath time of arggghhhh's from me little's ones booties ;)~

The Sun is Shinning

I woke up today with blue skies and warmth. It is a wonderful change of pace since this April has been quit dreary here in Ohio. My Weeping Cherry tree is in full bloom and looks gorgeous against the blue sky.


We had a birthday party for my son. Braden turned 6 this weekend. I made a super simple chocolate devil's cake and let him make the icing color with food coloring. I think he did a great job, don't you?


The week before we had our fun Easter celebration and I never got a chance to share our Easter eggs with everyone. My 10yr old Halie's set is the more vibrant ones because she has more patience and can keep her eggs in the dye longer. ;)~


With 3 days in a row of sunny skies and 85 degree weather I am excited for some outside time with the family. Plus a Saturday night with friends for my birthday!

Earth Day Etsy Style

In honor of Mother Nature and her special day I have chosen some fabulous Etsy Products for you to enjoy! Be sure to stop on over and heart or buy one of these special Earth Products!

I agree that Mother nature deserves our love and attention to detail on a daily basis, so that is why I have picked this reusable sandwich baggy. Any way we can reduce the amount of plastic bags in landfills helps Mother Nature and in turn helps our future. Plus it is supper cute and bright! You can buy one for yourself at

This next beauty features Mother Natures gorgeous Pacific East Coast. I would wear this as an everyday piece of jewelry for it's simple yet elegant design. You can buy Atlantic Blue at

I know that some people have a hard time loving the giant wind turbines being added on the landscape of earth, but they can be very beautiful. Knowing they are saving our planet from burning coal and gasoline is enough for me to love them, but they also have a simple beauty that JMJSTUDIO has captured here. JMJSTUDIO has made this renewable resource a work of art for you to display in your home. You can purchase this gorgeous One of a kind work of art at



One of Mother Earth's renewable resources that needs some more exposure is Hemp. Hemp can be used for lots of wonderful things including, but not limited to, paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, construction, health food, and fuel. It doesn't need carcinogenic materials to process it into a usable product unlike other materials. You can even use it in your everyday life and still be fashionable! This hemp zipper pouch is fun and functional. Atelierdesoyun has many versions and colors for you to choose from at

Thanks for taking a minute to look at some of what Mother Nature has to offer and remember to recycle,reuse, and reduce as best you can.

Same Sweater

I made two pillows from the same sweater. Both I adore for their nature themes! I would love to keep them both, but then My husband would put his feet on them and they are too cute for me to let him do that ;) teehee I used the same cream colored thrift store sweater and I would love to know what you think of my newest creations....

The first pillow is an adorable 12" Mr. Squirrel. He can be found in my Cherry Lane Jane Etsy Shop.


The second pillow is yet another fun nature inspired Mr. Fox!

I came home a red head.


I also came home relaxed and rejuvenated and ready to get back into real life. When I came home my Weeping Cherry was in bloom and I am glad I didn't miss it! Today I made a recycled sweater elephant bib and used the tree as a prop. I just listed it in my etsy shop.

I would say that this spring break has been a success!
