Homemade goodness! :)

Ok, seriously.  I was SO excited when I saw this:


Amanda’s first book, The Creative Family, is SUCH an inspiration to me.  Along with her blog, Soule Mama, I have a feeling these two books will help me get on my path to simplicity in life.  I’m longing to make my life as easy as possible and as fun as possible and removing destractions in my home is something I’ve been longing to do for awhile.  I want to be able to create with my oh-so-crafty son, and I can’t do that while my home is in its current state.  It’s too destracting and depressing.

So, as I read up on the Soule family’s life and devour her wonderful books I hope I can be one step closer to achieving my goal of beautiful bliss and relaxation. 😉  Wish me luck!  (Oh, and pick up Amanda’s first book while you’re at it!)


This is totally me.

Yay Kate!!

This is SO awesome.  AWESOME!  Thank you, Kate Winslet for telling it like it is.  All girls (hell, even guys) need to hear this.  It’s awesome.
