Bullet Journals for Teens

Afton invited me to be a 'guest crafter' for her NCL meeting. National Charity League (or NCL) is a mother-daughter service organization for girls in grades 7-12. It focuses on building mother-daughter relationships through community service. The girls meet as a group once a month. Their meetings are centered around a guest speaker or a community activity.  For this meeting, the girls wanted to work a craft. I was so honored that Afton suggested I help with the meeting. (Anyone with a teenage daughter knows this is a big compliment- ha!)  So I worked with another mom to come up with a craft that would be meaningful and fun for 8th-grade girls. After talking about all issues and pressure young women face in middle school, we decided that bullet journals would be perfect.

TX Pinner's 2019

Pinner's Texas 2019 did not disappoint! You might remember that I presented and taught several classes a few years ago at Pinner's. You can read all about it here. This year, Afton and I went as VIP guests. It was so fun!

Texas Beach Vacation: Where to Stay, Eat & Play

It had been a few years since we took a trip down to the Texas Coast.  Jeff and I started our tradition of visiting Texas beaches years ago when we were in high school. We were part of that Spring Break crew who lived it up on South Padre Island. As the years passed, we moved up to Port Aransas. And now that we have kids, that's the beach that calls us back. Some people question Texas beaches. After all, Texas is not the first place you think of when it comes to 'beach life'. But those who have been know.... Port A is once of the best kept secrets among Southerners. Want to know what makes Port Aransas so special? Keep reading!

McCall Idaho, Summer Vacation

It's time for another travel post! For most of us, the weather is cold and dreary. So let's travel back in time to summer. Let's travel back to our August trip to McCall, Idaho. Come with me and see the sunshine and mountains.

       
This post is written like a travel diary, a day-to-day account of what we did during a full week in Idaho. There are lots of photos and details about trails, food, and more!

Long Weekend in Scottsdale, AZ

Besides crafting, my other favorite hobby is traveling! Happily, Jeff enjoys this hobby too :) Our most recent adventure was to Scottsdale, Arizona to celebrate Jeff's 42nd birthday. If you are looking for a fun long weekend, check out Scottsdale.



We had a blast- read on to see what we did, where we stayed, and what we ate!

Fall Trail Mix Bar

Once a month, our middle school PTA hosts some kind of 'staff appreciation' event. Sometimes it's a full meal. Other times it's just a treat. For October, we decided to do a 'Trail Mix Bar'. I love snacky foods (who doesn't?!!) so this was a fun event to plan. This 'Trail Mix Bar' would be perfect for a birthday party, baby shower or any event where you want to present yummy munchies in a cute way.

Glamping Party & Using a Cricut to Make Feather Earrings

My baby turned nine years old! To celebrate, she simply wanted a sleepover at home. So I started planning! We decided on a 'glamourous camping theme' also know as 'glamping'. Part of this was due to the adorable tent we bought for camping... but have yet to use! So with our theme in mind and a handful of excited guests, it was party time!

PTA Ideas for Kicking Off the Year!

Probably the most busy time in the PTA world is the beginning of the school year. PTA volunteers are organizing school supplies, teacher luncheons, membership drives, meetings with administration, training for new board members, and more! In the interest of 'sharing is caring' -- I thought I would show what we did at our elementary school. Hopefully it will give you a few ideas you can use on your campus.
