I love journals and making journals and decorating them.

I have a collection of beautiful papers, to decorate my journals with.

I enjoy going through Thriftyfun and sharing on social media.

I met a dear friend from this site. We found we lived, very close, within a block from one another.

I spend my days taking care of my older daughter, taking walks in the park,with my chihuahuas, and doing my college studies.

I am working towards my Masters in Psychology, through Ashford University.

I extend my best wishes to everyone, and wish you all the best that life has to offer.

Blueberries in Container

Bring Fruit to Potlucks or Church DinnersWe recently attending a cookout at church People often pick up cookies or cokes or something processed to bring. I think blueberries are a great food to bring because they have so many vitamins and antioxidants in them. So I will be bringing blueberries, strawberries, and other wonderful real food to all the meals I attend.


A piece of embroidery thread being inserted into a knot.

Using Thread to Untie KnotsI will often have knots brought to me to untie that are practically impossible to undo. I thread a needle with embroidery floss and get the string of embroidery floss between the knotted yarns. I will keep reinserting the needle and yarn wherever the knot is the most stuck. After a bit of pulling, everything is able to be untied.

Make Your Own Unstuffed Dog ToysMy dogs like to play with toys, and yet they like to pull out the stuffing even more. As a result I have started to make their own unstuffed dog toys. I took an old fleece pajama pant and cut a good size off of the leg part.
