My little sister, suffering with Lyme Disease

My little sister, Chelsea has been suffering with Lyme Disease since she was five years old.  She is now 17.  There are many children and people struggling with Lyme Disease just like her.  So, about 3 years ago I started a run, triathlon team that raises awareness of Lyme Disease, Team Lyme.  We wear our bright lime green Team Lyme gear when we participate in any run, tri or any other event.   We have over one-hundred members of all ages and fitness levels that live across the country.  Read the most recent news about Chelsea, Team Lyme and Lyme Disease news in the Team Lyme e-newsletter, hot off the press!

Naked Tissue Boxes, Cool or Uncool?

As a kid, I remember the crochet covered tissue box on the back of the toilet. My mom had a few designs and would switch out the crochet covers based on holiday.

I was never too fond of the crochet look and ever since I’ve lived on my own, my tissue boxes are always naked. But, is this not cool anymore? As I flipped through my Pottery Barn Catalog I noticed a MONOGRAMMED tissue box cover! Personalizing your tissues! This must be the Gucci of tissue box covers.

This finding attracted me to do some research on covering up tissue boxes. I found some crazy creative tissue box covers out there and picked my favorites to share with you…

Are you a righty or a lefty?

You know how they say we have a “creative” side of the brain and a “logical” side of the brain? Well, my creative side is for sure, the most dominant.
Whether I am re-painting a piece of furniture, cooking, designing a logo or creating a website, I love being creative! So, I’m going to try-out this blog thing and share my ideas, creations, mistakes and helpful tips. I hope my blog inspires you to pick up a paint brush, spatula or computer mouse, and create!
