Pinterest Pinup: TP Pumpkins

This idea for a festive fall bathroom decoration comes from Smashed Peas and Carrots.  It's just rolls of toilet paper wrapped in fat quarters, with rolled-up brown paper stuck into the tubes. Easy peasy! (Pun intended.) I did these three in about five minutes. And after Thanksgiving, the fat quarters will go back in my fabric box, and the toilet paper will be used for... *ahem* ... its intended purpose.

The Extra Thirty Seconds

So, a piece of advice I've been giving myself lately is, "Take the extra thirty seconds."  There are so many things that I habitually pass over or procrastinate because I'm hurrying to my next task or activity, but the accumulated weight of them always ends up adding stress to my day.

Hello, dear readers. I'd apologize for going so long without posting, but I never had any followers to begin with, so never mind that.

I've had a busy year, but now that Sunbeam is a little older, I'm past the postpartum period, and we've successfully moved from one state to another, I feel ready to attempt this again.  I've completely redesigned the blog, including changing the title and address.  Once I get a little more savvy, I'll try to coordinate it with my various other online presences, like Pinterest, Twitter, and my soon-to-be Etsy shop.  Stay tuned!
