The Moon

"She was devoted to the moon In it's darkness she found comfort In its light she found hope" -her thoughts 36 No matter what the season or how hot or cold it is there is nothing better than laying on a blanket watching the moon. "Instead of being someones sun, be their moon and light up their most dark of times." "No matter where we are in the world we are all looking at the same moon" Even in the most dark of times there will always be moonlight to guide our way home. Never give up! Never give in! There is always a moon there to guide you. --you are never alone 1-800-273-8255 or text 741741--

WHATS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?

I was actually watching a youtube video based on an old-school scary movie and realized that my kids are now old enough to watch the scary movies that I grew up on! Beware there will be affiliate links so you can see which movies or their book I am talking about! I was so happy because it takes a lot to scare my kids but also it is a coming of age thing for them as well!  So whats your favorite scary movie? Do you have that one movie you have to wrap yourself in a blanket to watch? My favorite scary movie by far has been and always will be THE SHINING ! Seriously Jack Nicholson coming through the door with the ax saying "Heres Johnny", Is my favorite horror scene of all time. My first horror book was The Shining and I later picked up the sequel to it Dr. Sleep ! (BTW if you have a teen or preteen who likes to read Dr. Sleep is on my no read list as it's not for the preteen crowd.)  Movies based on Steven King's books basically head up my list of scary mo

CRAFTERS BEWARE

As Of This Post, There Are 230 DAYS Until Christmas Now I can hear you "WHY ANGIE WHY!" Well, I am pointing it out because now because now is the time to get some shopping done on the cheap and you won't have to worry about the crunch later on. For those who know me already know that I am a Christmas fanatic!  From baking cookies to giving gifts. I do have one advantage though I am a professional crafter so making the people I love and care for gifts is not a bad thing for me. I have been known to dig into my own crafting store for the last minute gift for a child's friend or an unexpected event like a baby shower or wedding shower! However if your crafty put your uses to work for you and make yourself some gifts or do what I do now and look for the cheaper deals. That way come Black Friday you can sip your coffee and laugh at the people who are rushing to find the deals you already got months before. So here are some great ways to save money for the ho

THE UTTER NEED TO DO SOMETHING

Have you ever woken up with the feel and drive to do something that you have not done happily in a while? This morning for the first time in over a year I woke up with the feeling of want and need to bake. Not because I had to because I could get snacks at the store down the road but because I had the feeling to create and bake. This to me is a huge step in the right direction for me and I am so happy that I woke up feeling this way. Because I feel happy and less anxious than I have been. However, it scares me a bit as well because I do not want to lose this amazing feeling today. My sister-in-law Pam used to joke with me that I should open a food truck and serve nothing but cookies and coffee... To be honest I often contemplated if I could do it. Could I make a passion of mine into a viable business? But for now, I will just be the crazy cookie lady at home! *note because I am always asked* the top of the cookies are not made with a special tool or anything I use a mini ice cream s

THE CHALLENGES OF BEING A WORK FROM HOME MOM

All Mom's Deserve A Chance To Bloom Well as most know I lost my brick and mortar job this past January. I have been trying to get my home business and freelancing going but it has had a slight issue. My soon to be ex and my children all believe that since I am at home I have nothing but free time on my hands. This is hardly the case! This morning I already was working online freelancing, then after that was on my porch posting stock to my resell store. This is not including the fact that I have 10 incomplete crafting projects sitting on my desk in my office area that could very easily take 2 hours and they would be done and ready for the online gift shop. What have I done so far today? Laundry, dishes, and cleaning!  I will admit I am happy about the fact that I got the 60 items posted for my store but where does the line between working from home and always home to being a maid form a wall? The thing is I am not the only mom who has this issue. There are plenty of moms w
