Mother’s Day is Sunday!  I can’t believe it, because that means it’s half-way through the month of May and it’s gone way too fast.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Matter of Cents and I are sharing our favorite mom-inspired pins from Pinterest.  We’d love for you to share yours, too; see how you can at the bottom of the post.

Happy Mother’s Day to you all.  And a special Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and Gram. Continue reading »

Easter Crafts via Pinterest

A quick look at my Pinterest boards and blog posts will tell you: I love holidays.  And so I get excited thinking about what crafts to make, recipes to cook, sweets to bake, etc. with each approaching holiday.  Because we have Easter just around the corner, this week Matter of Cents and I have choosen Easter Crafts as our weekly Pinterest Pin Me! theme.

I could easily have linked about 90 other things, and that’s what I love most about Pinterest.  It is a great repository for ideas of every nature; every time I visit the site, I find things I both want to recreate, and projects I want to tweak to my own tastes/needs.  Here are a few of my top picks.
