It Takes A Village.


When the Birmingham Covington Middle schooler’s reached out for me to help illustrate and produce their video to help raise funds for a tractor and water pump in a remote village in Zambia – I had to say yes!  Funds were raised for not one – but two tractors! These students are truly inspiring, click the link to see….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx3P4Ll9mK4

Touch A Heart


Hello friends, let’s show Melody we care and send her cards of hope on her healing journey.

Here’s Melody’s story :

Can you send my step-mom a get-well card/letter?

In December 2012, at the age of 40, my step-mom (Melody) was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. After surgery and chemotherapy, she was in remission. In November 2013, doctors found two new spots of cancer and she began radiation. 2 weeks ago, the doctors told us her cancer has spread with new spots on the liver and small intestine. She has begun chemotherapy again and we are taking things one day at a time.

Since Thanksgiving, I have been collecting get-well cards for her. Melody loves greeting cards! It has been very powerful knowing that many people all over the country (and world!) are praying and thinking of her! She opens a few each day and I cannot put into words how much the cards allow her to “forget” her pain for those few moments and just smile.

Will you also send Melody a card?

Any cards can be mailed to:
Melody R
PO Box 697
Portage, MI 49081

If you want to follow Melody’s journey or view some of the cards she has already received:https://www.facebook.com/Melodyscarddrive

Feel free to share her page and/or share this message so that the drive can continue!




Happy Valentines!



Stay warm, my friends!

Oh, snap

Your furry friedds get cold, too. Be sure to keep them warm and out of the frigid weather.






Happiest of Holidays


Wishing you lots of love this Holiday Season.


The Pits.

A Hand_Post

Wearing your favorite shirt and afraid to raise your hand because, you know…the dreaded yellowed pit?

Save the whites!

If you’re not ready to relegate your shirts, Tees and blouses to the rag bin, try this eco friendly recipe on pit stains and that ring around the collar – it works!

• Two parts hydrogen peroxide

• One part baking soda

• One part dish soap

• Mix together well and rub into stains heavily on both sides. Let sit for about an hour and wash as usual. Got a front loader? Rinse well first.

Word has it this treatment even removed red food dye from a white tablecloth. Try it and save your whites!


Pucker Up


Weeds. My nemesis. No matter how many I pluck, a million more pop up somewhere else just to taunt me. Kind of like the gopher in Caddyshack.

Pucker up, weeds.

Well, it turns out, vinegar has become my new best friend. Not only does it unclog drains and take the sting out of bug bites – it helps win the battle of the weeds.

Just put vinegar into a spray bottle and spritz the offending plants* in driveways, sidewalks, mulch and gravel. SHAZAM! All withered up the next day.

Vinegar. For your yard and for your salad, naturally.

*Don’t overspray onto foliage you want to keep.
