Peeking Through My Window–Repost

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life, Keeper of Home, Marriage, Parenting (No Respond)

Source I had initially posted Peeking Through My Window in March 2012 but happened upon it the other day and thought it was a great time to repost, even if it isn’t March Break…just insert “back to school” or something. I began preparing for March break in February. Alas, March break crept up fast and […]

DIY Magnetic Map of the World

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Keeper of Home, Teaching Tots (3 Responds)

  Last summer we bought a map for about $7 at Costco. It’s pretty big, it’s poster-like but lightly laminated if that makes sense. Wipeable, I guess you could say. I didn’t want to…well….tape it onto the wall like I did with posters when I was 13 so I toyed with finding a frame for […]

DIY Felted Dryer Balls

Posted by Jennifer under Keeper of Home, Toolbox (3 Responds)

I hang much of our clothing and dry others on our indoor drying rack. At our previous home we had built a clothes line but I haven’t done that here; we’ve talked about putting up a clothesline drying tree here but have yet to do it. Regardless of all that, I still love the dryer […]

A Little Change: Just Add a Lamp

Posted by Jennifer under Books, Keeper of Home (2 Responds)

DH and I have had mismatched bedroom lamps for our entire marriage. Does it really matter in the long run? Not really. But I’d mentioned it to DH once about how it would be nice to have matching ones; sort of a pie-in-the-sky sort of wish since I refuse to spend a fortune on lamps […]

How To: Make an Old Window into a Mirror

Posted by Jennifer under Keeper of Home, Toolbox (No Respond)

When I found this lovely old window, I immediately knew I wanted to do something with it. What? I had no idea! I’m not a super creative person, I don’t have decorative flair and I’m not a talented DIY-er. I know that Pinterest is filled with lots of interesting ideas but I’m also a bit […]

Making Whoopie Pies

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Keeper of Home, Parenting, Recipe Box (No Respond)

My tots love baking. Mommy The tots love to eat said baking. Isaac is particularly in love with watching the mixer spin around and around. Baking with littles is fun, time-consuming and messy. It’s also worth it. {did I mention it was messy?} Side note: The messy kitchen? That wasn’t actually from the Whoopie Pie […]

Peeking Through My Window

Posted by Jennifer under Keeper of Home, Parenting (No Respond)

Source I began preparing for March break in February. Alas, March break crept up fast and life being as it is, I was not as prepared as I had planned to be for our March Break trip. I forgot a few important things – like my beloved pillow and the new library books. What is […]

Choose Peace

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Keeper of Home, Marriage, Parenting (3 Responds)

Source Last month, as I reflected on 2011, mentally reviewed my accomplishments, failures and re-evaluated my priorities and pondered the upcoming year, it was as if the Lord audibly whispered, “choose peace”. I’ve mulled that over while I washed dishes, folded laundry, and tried to fall asleep at night. How can I choose peace? My […]

A Sundae Gift Box

  Thanks to the Happy Housewife, I made Sundae Boxes as gifts for some friends this Christmas. It was fun and easy to put together and hopefully the recipients enjoyed them. In my box I put waffle bowls, caramel sauce, chocolate sprinkles, gummy worms, crushed candy canes, maraschino cherries and sugar sprinkles. I wanted to […]

Travelling Light

  Photo Credit What is the Real Cost? There is a cost to most things you have, though often it is hidden.  I’m sure you can think of more but some of the costs that spring to my mind immediately are: Initial cost Operating costs Time Investments Space Priorities We have a large home, over […]
