Secret Places of Peace…or Not

This blog has a lot of pictures…mostly of my daughter.  I made photo albums for all three of my kids this past Christmas, and of course, gave them the best ones…kinda like Mom always eating the burnt piece of toast!

Framed Memories

How many times in life do we wish we could have a ‘do-over’?   Ohhh, if life was like the games we played as children, it would be so – much – easier.

Mudding and Taping -How Hard Can It Be?

I have a new appreciation for the entire industry of Drywall Professionals.  It's a skill; and it's a definite skill that I do not have. I thought perhaps our ensuite shower was a 'water saver' version.  Upon entering said shower, you had about 30 seconds to shower before the water turned from nice and toasty… Continue reading Mudding and Taping -How Hard Can It Be?
