How to Make a Living as a Crafter

I have made a living as a crafter for close to 15 years. It has not always been easy. There were times I was poor, and there were times I felt rich. There were times without health insurance, and times when I was staying in hotels in Beverly Hills. The craft industry waxes and wanes like anything else. This, my friends, is why I always live by the motto that you need to have several financial irons in the fire at once. ...more

Winter wonders

It’s been a winter to remember, that’s for sure. As a transplant to Indiana from Colorado, having snowy winters is not new to me. However, this has been by far the snowiest winter we’ve had in our nine years in the Midwest. Here's a recap of our winter thus far at the Weidenbenner home:...more

Monday Memories

What a crazy week with snow, ice and even an earthquake! I'm happy that the temperatures will be in the 70s this week! Praise The Lord! Can't handle the cold much longer! Needless to say, we didn't do much this week other than play in the snow. I didn't go to work at all this week and let's just say, I am way behind on blogging! Thursday was the hubs birthday but I didn't get to the store for his steak...which was ok because we ended up going to a going away party anyway (I was so grateful to get out of the house, I didn't care where I was going)! ...more

6 Instagrammers You'll Love to Like

Of all my social media accounts, Instagram quickly climbed to the top of my favorites list -- and happily remains at the to of the heap. I love the pretty, the ordinary, the funny, the ugly, the real of what is shared every day by people. It's like a glimpse into their lives that we don't get via words on Twitter or Facebook. We've rounded up a handful of great accounts who are all using Instagram in their own, unique ways. There's something for everyone on this list!...more

mY CaMEra… ((wait for it))…..IT’S HERE!!!!!!

Bought myself a camera after looking online and learning about what was out there for like 2 months! I felt so guilty for spending the money. I always do. Why do we women do this to ourselves? We work hard and it's okay to spend a little money on ourself every now and then. So my new camera arrived Monday and I am so beyond excited! Like, I just can’t stand it! Been playing with it since I got home from work. Like a kid at Christmas I tell you!  I'm putting all guilty feelings for the purchase aside....more

Once again I am really enjoying the creative spark I get from participating in the Photo A Day Challenge... but you know what? I am dying to start taking some outdoor photos already! I had a couple in mind for the February 12 prompt ("Out + About"), but it was just too darn cold to spend any sort of time outside fussing around with photos. ...more
