………….Meet your New BFF…………

I am the momma with a hubby who changes poopy diapers.
I am the momma who crawls into the crib with her one year old as a last ditch effort to get him to sleep.
I am the momma who recently revealed her biggest, most personal secret –on her blog.
I am the momma who sometimes super sizes a McDonald’s value meal to overcome a tough day.
I am the momma who confronted her anonymous blog commenter.
I am the momma who’s little guy is growing up way too fast.
I am the momma who makes lists for everything,
who has cheerios stuck to her bum most days,
who looks hideous in skinny jeans,
who eats peanut butter on a spoon with whipped cream,
who worries that she’s never doing enough,
who wears sweatpants way more than her hubby would prefer,
who listened to every middle of the night breath of her newborn,
who is on a continual quest to find patience,
who sprints through crafts during nap time,
and who loves her little family to infinity and beyond.
And this is my little family.
And today I am crazy excited to be hanging out for the day with Keren’s fabulous readers {that’s you}!
I think Keren is incredible and super talented, ya know!
Today I am going to share the
world’s easiest Valentines Day project:

These fun little jars make adorable V-Day gifts for friends, “lovers”, teachers, co-workers, neighbors, whoever.  And you can fill them with ANYTHING!
Red hots, love notes, hot tamales, candy kisses, paper hearts, etc.
Here’s what you need to make these cuties:
Canning jar for jam {it’s smaller than other canning jars}
Cupcake liners with a cute design
Candy or Love Notes
First, fill your jar with yummy and cute candy.

Now, take apart your canning jar lid {it should have 2 pieces}.
Put the middle of the lid on the jar opening.

Place one of the cupcake liners over the middle of the lid, and press the sides of the paper down around the jar.
Screw on the outside of the lid.  Your cupcake liner should be hanging ever-so-adorably down the edge of the lid.
Now pick some ribbon and embellish your jar with a little bow.
And that’s all there is to it!
And if you’re still feeling crafty, stop by my blog for a whole bunch of fun tutorials like this Anthropologie inspired necklace.
And you can also check out the latest blog I started,
A blog where we learn about your secrets,
where we tell you that you’re not alone,
where we comfort you and perhaps even provide you with the courage to overcome your secret,
where we welcome you into The SISTERHOOD of SECRETS,
and perhaps give you the strength to endure your secret,OR we simply become educated about your secret.
If you have a secret to share, we would love to support you.
Anonymous or with a name attached,
you decide how you want your secret to be posted.
Stop by and have a look around.


Dont you just Love her to pieces!!
Totally Beautiful Fun and Real!
And no guys, she doesn’t use  magic toothpaste! 
This is her secret weapon ;)

    Hello Ashley,
    My name is Paula. I have spent a greater part of the afternoon reading your Sisterhood of Secrets blog and have been deeply touched by the many stories from our fellow sisters. I can so relate to the hurts and struggles for as with so many, I too have had my fare share. I would like to invite you to stop by my blog some time … I write my struggles out through poetry and verse. I have found this form to be quite healing for me personally. Many of my readers have found my words to be of great comfort also.

    Wishing you a blessed and blissful day ….
