We are now within weeks of Thanksgiving here in the USA. If you are hosting this year, I’m sure you have lists – lots of lists. You’re probably already planning for Christmas too. If you work outside the home, managing a home during the holidays and dealing with modern-day working life are hard to balance. The tool of choice is a Christmas planner: a one-stop location for lists, calendars and menus.Read More

Many of us have an occasional guest in our homes. This is certainly true in my Florida home. If you have a space that can be set aside for a guest, I have a few suggestions for additions to the space with special attention to your guest’s needs. It might be an office/guest room and have a multiple purpose. We still want to create a room that’s inviting and comfortable as well as functional. After all, when we travel, we all would like a quiet place to rest in the evening. That’s where you come in as the hostess.Read More
Since the beginning of Christianity, the cross has been the principal symbol of the Christian religion. It recalls the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and the resurrection. This is important to remember, but the cross is a symbol of much more. The cross can be interpreted as a sign of hope, representing the forgiveness of sins and God’s reconciliation with man. It is a powerful symbol of divine love and salvation. The cross with the figure of the crucified Christ serves as a reminder of his sacrifice and his suffering. The cross without the figure, often referred to as “the Empty Cross”, symbolizes the resurrection. He is risen and is not there. It is time for joy in our divine gift.Read More
Sunday, April 17th is Easter. In celebrating the season this year, I’ve made an inspirational printable, Easter Blessings. Although I love bunnies and Easter eggs, I also know that the reason for the season is the resurrection of Jesus. Many of the symbols of the season are a celebration of new life. In the time before Easter which is known as Lent in some churches, I spend time reflecting on the miracle of life and all its blessings. I pray the Lord blesses you and keeps you in the palm of his hand.Read More
Today’s inspirational quote is from Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910 to 1997). During her lifetime Mother Teresa became famous as the Catholic nun who dedicated her life to caring for the destitute and dying in the slums of Calcutta – now known as Kolkata. She set up soup kitchens, a leper colony, orphanages, and a home for the dying destitute. She treated the lepers, educated the poorest of the poor, and fed the homeless. She treated them like her family.
Her message to me was that you don’t have to do big or great things to help.
Small things become great when done with love.
I love to surround myself with words and images that embrace positive attitudes and foster peace, love, and kindness. Today’s printable is sized 12″ x 12″.
Today’s inspirational print, Gather, is how I think of our connections to friends and family. I think when the world shut down in ealy 2020, we all missed gathering with those we care about, and sharing our thoughts, food, and space. As the world has continued in a changed state, I read many blog posts about happy reconnections as family members and friends re-connect. My wish for all of us is a happy, healthy world where we can gather, share, and laugh.
