We interrupt Way Back When-sday to bring you this special message...

Hi friends,

I am loving creating the Way Back When-sday features (it has been so great to read your fun comments as we reminisce together!) - but they take a fair amount of time to do right (time is not a commodity I have in buckets) - so I am going to do them twice a month rather than weekly. That …

Junkin' Like a Drunken Sailor (Oh the Guilt!!)

Why guilt you might ask...? Because I cannot seem to quit buying this stuff!! It's not that I spend very much money - quite the contrary (this stuff is dirt cheap)....it's that I DON"T HAVE ANY MORE ROOM!!

Way Back When-sday: One Week Break

Just a quick note to say that I will return to Way Back When-sday next week (we'll jump back to 1997 !!) - with all the trauma of hubby's injury and lots going on on top of that, we just need a little break to rejuvenate for a day or two. Thanks much - I'll see you all soon!!

Easter 2008

With everything going on of late, I am just now getting around to posting photos from the Schultea Family Picnic on Easter. My sweet hubby comes from a BIG extended family - wow - I just love it! This was the first time I was around all of them in one place, and it was wonderful (except f…

Illustration Friday: Homage & Way Back When-sday: 1977

Homage to Holly Hobbie

Hi friends - This will be a multi-purpose post today. This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Homage", so, I recycled an illustration I did for IF in 2006 for the topic "Simple". I did the illustration as an homage to the Holly Hobbie style of illustration, and used a quote f…

Happy April Fool's Day!

May you be blessed with laughter today...and everyday!

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." (Proverbs 31:25)

BTW, if you'd like to order a set of cute notecards with the "Laugh" design (or other designs from my 2008 Cale…
