Dyeing for Easter

DyedEasterEggsKoolAidPSK

Get it? "Dyeing" This is totally a post about dyeing Easter eggs. And having to look up the spelling for "dyeing" because it's weird. Last year, the boys and I made an Easter Egg Tree, but I haven't had a chance to get crafty this year (and I don't anticipate it happening any time soon). But! I saw this fun tutorial for dyeing eggs with Kool-Aid and we decided to try it. The author does a great … [Read more...]

Scrapping the Sad Stuff

I didn't think about the sad stuff when I started Project Life.

Jan2013FitnessPSK

I'm back! In the whole healthy-eating, getting fit thing, I mean. Like so many other times, I stopped for a bit, and now I'm picking it back up. I'm okay with that.

I've also gained back about five inches … [Read more...]
