Year of Yes

It’s easy to take books in the primary language you speak for granted when you live in a place where you can shop easily. While we lived in France, it was easy to order online and anticipate getting the mail. We only picked up our mail every six weeks to two months so patience was […]

Amalfi Coast and Sorrento USO Tour

In December we went on our first USO tour, to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The drive – stunning, mildly scary, and super windy. Not wind like air blowing, but wind like wind a toy. Once we got across from Mt. Vesuvius the bus stopped so everyone could see the view. Our first stop was […]

Creative Live Surface Pattern Class

Creative Live’s Surface Pattern Class

Creative Live is running several of their most popular classes for free right now so I took the chance to check out Bonnie Christine’s Surface Pattern class. Our internet connection at the hotel is so bad! The class kept pausing to reload, or it would just shut down all together. I watched just enough to […]

Weekend Adventures

We’ve been trying to get out and do something every day, it’s really no fun living in a hotel. This time we went to a mall that is near the base and then to IKEA. The whole point of going to the mall was to get a cell phone. There are services on base, but […]

CraftSanity Magazine Sale

You don’t want to miss this – Jennifer over at Craft Sanity is having a sale on the print and PDF versions of the CraftSanity Magazine. I love this, I didn’t realize that I needed a couple of the editions so I bought them. Jennifer’s magazine is beautiful, full of really great stories and interviews, […]


Leather Card Holder Tutorials

I really love the phone cases that we have found here* because they have a small slim wallet area to hold a few things. Not a lot fits in the space, but for my kids it’s enough for their bus and lunch cards. That is great for me because despite knowing where their phones are […]


Scrappy Flying Geese

Ohhh this is such a good idea! I love being able to use up scraps (I started over with my scraps after I gave away an entire luggage full of scraps to the parent group at school) and flying geese are so fun to work with. Look at this tutorial that Heather over at House […]
