I have had a variety of clients and consulting gigs but this is the first time in awhile I've become a regular with a company doing stuff for them and not me. And I was ready. Ready to get working … [Read more...]

This week's Pinspiration was inspired by this pin and the threat of an epic snowstorm that fell flat here in Philadelphia Sunday night. For days, the weathermen were threatening that winter storm Titan would dump a foot of snow or more on Philly but it ended up missing us and going south to all you folks in the DC area.

But doing this isn't always cheap. I've seen stretched canvas photo art priced as high as $1000! Love that places like Staples offer an affordable and great quality … [Read more...]

Last week at the Mom Mixer in Philadelphia,  I was so excited to be able to send all of our attendees home with a Staples Arc Notebook.  Because I love mine.  I may try and keep myself organized online and on my computer as much as I can, but the end of the day nothing beats having a notebook and the ability to keep notes written by your own … [Read more...]

Tax Season again. All I have to say about that is, BLAH!
