10 Steps to Decorating Your Home on a Tight Budget

I’ve given a lot of thought to my DIY projects. I search the Internet for ideas. The thing I enjoy the most is looking at other blogs that focus on home decor. But they can be my worst enemy at times too. Why? Because I don’t always feel I can measure up. The problem with looking at what other people do is I tend to compare myself with them – oh boy, that can be a big mistake if I’m not careful I can become discouraged.

Fall Splendor – Canvasing the Neighborhood

There are times when you find the unexpected all around you and are forced to pause for a moment and take it all in. I know I drove my husband crazy today, but I just couldn’t help it. He’s the quiet unassuming humble, let’s think about it a while and don’t be too hasty kinda guy. We’re a good fit, but I didn’t always see it that way. Funny how life can change your perspective. Anyway, back to my driving him crazy today. We went out canvasing today for our church, Northside Baptist of Wausau. I was uber tired, having been up half the night working on printing a trifold for today’s event. Long story, but basically, our printer guy failed to deliver our flyers on time so I was spending oodles of time printing them on an office inkjet so we’d have them in time for this morning’s event. … Read more
