Paper packages tied up with string and FREE PRINTABLES

 Gotta LOVE FREE wrapping for Christmas!
 My husband works for a commercial printer and brings home huge sheets of white paper.
I decided to save some Christmas green by going...white.

Take It In

I smelled it.

Did you smell it?
As we stepped outside for the bus stop this morning.

Railroad Avenue

Remember that day last summer, when you decided to drive down a dark alley with no lights, on a hot night and dig through a pile of wood left from an old fence?
Your sister's in-laws decided to tear down a fence and she told you anyone was welcome to the wood but as you dug in the dark you were a little nervous about the dog barking ferociously in the next yard over and wondered how many spiders where in the pile that you couldn't see because it was so dark? And you really, really hoped that this was indeed her in-laws back alley?

Red, White, Blue and Gray?

 You know I must be happy with a room...
 when I don't touch it for days, weeks, even months.
 That, or life just got really, really busy.

He Is Risen

 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side,
clothed in a long white garment, and they were affrighted.

Speaking of work spaces, I just found out about a great company that specializes in unique work spaces called .WeWork If you are looking for a unique, one of a kind, creative environment for your people, team, friends and even family to gather in to get the creative juices flowing, check their locations out:

 For months, nay, years...I have marked this page in the Pottery Barn Catalog.
I dreamed of having an office like this one day...
 They have moved it around, given in different configurations and parred it with different accents.
They even offer it in a different color, but I love the white (but you knew that).
I've saved up to buy it, twice, said I was just going to do it...
Couldn't bring myself to spend the money...not when I knew I could do it myself.
I present to you, my version of the Pottery Barn Bedford Corner Desk.

Love Week

It is Valentine's Day this week...
 I'm sorry, can someone please explain what happened to January?
You know that month that comes in the aftermath of Christmas
but before you get use to writing the new year on your checks there are hearts everywhere
and you are arguing with your children over what kind of Valentine's they are giving their classmates.
