A Backup New Years Resolution

HAPPY NEW YEARS Everyone!

A wise man once told me his New Years resolution is: to never make another new years resolution again. I am not the kind of person to make a resolution just because it’s a new year. Why not improve on ourselves all year long? This year though, I think everyone should have the same resolution, which is to backup your photos! My photos are my memories and if I lost these I would be completely devastated, which is exactly what happened to me a few years ago. About 9 years ago, I got a new camera for Christmas and like most new moms I went trigger happy and took a ton of photos of my 2 year old daughter. One day they were just… gone, just like that. An entire year of my daughter and my memories…gone. I couldn’t even tell you what memories they were of. Did we have pictures from the park, visits from Grandma and Grandpa, birthday parties or just lazy Sunday pictures? I’ve always had a really bad memory and when I look back at photographs, they’ve always helped me remember the event or parts of the day. I don’t even know what happened….did I reformat my memory card, did I forget to copy them over, or did they get deleted from my computer somehow? Who knows. All I know, is they are gone and my daughter will never be two again.

In this post, I’ll hopefully help you with ways of backing up your photos with tips I’ve learned along the way. Let’s start with how many copies of your photos you should Continue reading “A Backup New Years Resolution”

Finally a Blog Where Mama Actually Works…

7x5 Photo

Ok, I know that title might sound a little harsh, as I am sure there are tons of moms who work full-time jobs and still have blogs and time to do things! I guess I put this title to give a little insight as to the reason why I started this blog in the first place…. I am not posting things to make money for being so awesome at creating diy projects and then selling my work, I really enjoy making things and finding really good deals, so that when my project is done I can say, “It only cost me $10 – Screw you Homesense!” (Totally kidding, I love Homesense!)

Now, I work a full-time job and then come home to take care of my two daughters, two dogs and two husbands (Kidding again…I only have one of those). I don’t have a lot of extra time in the day to make or do a lot of my own projects, so sometimes, my projects sit in my craft area for days sometimes even months! If you plan on following my blog, let’s just say it’s not going to be updated twice a day or EVEN every day for that matter….I’m busy and have 101 other things to do, like make dinner, lunches, helping with homework or getting my one Ellen episode in, while eating some potato chips. Lol The point is, I can show you some step-by-step (Ooo Baby) projects, that you can ACTUALLY make, that will look really good and wont cost a lot of  $$$ cha ching $$$. Now, I am not saying that I am the ONLY person on the worldwide web that can show you crafts or diy projects for cheap, but I am hoping, that when you follow my site, you wont be overwhelmed with the things that I can show you and that you’ll be able to diy and show me all the fun things you were able to create for yourself or for your kids! I hope that I can explain all the steps in an easy and logical way, so that anyone could do it, or how I like to say “Even Missie Can Do” (haha Inside Joke). I can’t tell you how many websites I’ve been to and thought “Ok, umm, wait…GO BACK, GO BACK…I think you missed a step there!”

So anyways….I hope you are able to take something from my blog and I am hoping I am able to provide you with all the tools needed to create projects for you, your kids or even friends and please keep in mind that I also work a full-time job. Enjoy!
