Pure Brassy Happiness!


How is your day? Today I am feeling brassy!

I have been playing with brass… It has a sassy look.


I found this key this summer and fell in love, love, love!

It pairs perfectly with the delicate brassy link chain I found.

And how about this pair for a perfectly layered duo?


Aren’t they cute together? Pure Brassy Happiness!


I hope you have a happy brassy day!

Enjoy the Journey!


We have been on a fun little journey the past couple of days. Our crazy schedules did not really allow for a summer getaway and made a lasting the decision to give the kids some end of the summer fun.

Thanks to Gram & Gramps, we had Nickelodeon Universe wristbands… We spent the day yesterday at the temperature controlled Mall of America. So much fun!!

We stayed at the Waterpark of America hotel and our kids and their friends spent last night and this morning in the refreshing fun filled atmosphere. We think it was a smart choice as the heat index is 103 and thousands of Minnesotans are sweating it out at the state fair!

We are journeying home… relaxed, happy and feeling refreshed.

I wish I had pics to share, but I maxed out my iPhone at 5,231 pictures and cannot take a photo so I had to use my camera. (Insert sad face)


Today, as we were packing up the room (which is usually a tad stressful), Tom said to me, just let the kids do it. So today, I decided my new Mantra is “Let Go and Let Kids!” Ha! It worked!! It was so much easier! I relaxed a little more and they stepped it up!! Fun stuff!

I hope you are staying cool and refreshed!

Enjoy the journey!

Creative Minds are Rarely Tidy!

Whew, I admit I am a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to paperwork. So it would not shock anyone to know that I continued to put off sorting and organizing until a few days before our appointment with our accountant.

I continue to live by the quote that
Creative Minds are Rarely Tidy!

My sweet husband and kids got me the best Christmas present this year and because it related to paperwork, it remained in it’s pristine packaging until yesterday. (I am so bad!)


Yesterday I bit the bullet & opened up my NeatDesk. It is a dynamic product that scans receipts, documents and business cards. It recognizes text, dates, and amounts and automatically enters, sorts and categorizes the fields on receipts to break them down into your expense categories! You verify the amounts are correct, but I even scanned a receipt from a paper bag! I must say it is incredible!

I scanned 156 receipts yesterday. It saves an image of each receipt too, I love it. (I am not getting paid to tell you my opinion either!)

So now I am in great shape for my meeting with my accountant! And I will be so thankful to have tax time behind me!


I hope you have an incredibly creative day!

Penny For Your Thoughts…


Coins & keys… So much fun to play with.


One of the things that I like about this necklace is that you can wear them all in one chain or wear them all individually layered.


I love versatility! Do you?
