Sunday Snapshot — We’ve been interviewed!

Hmm… what could possibly be making Clara so happy?

…a surprise visit from Grandma and Papock!

Also, we are honored to be featured on the Examiner for a fun interview. Be sure to check it out!
More frugal crafty goodness coming up… fun!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    Clara certainly was not happy with how the Steelers played!



  2. My oldest son is a Steelers fan. He feels your pain, Mark. The rest of us are Pats fans in this house – we live in MA for goodness sake! Don't ask me how T became a Steelers fan!

    Anyway, your interview was great. LOVED it!

    Clara's personality seems to be coming through in your blog more and more. She is such a cutie, just like her big sister.

  3. Hi, I can't see the pictures anymore. What can I do ?

  4. Grandparents are always given the rock star treatment here too!

    Congrats on your feature!

  5. Congratulations on the feature — that's great!

  6. Hi Valerie

    Grandparents are always received with squeals of delight and laughter around here too.

    Congratulations on your article. I aree with your philosophy about doing something creative every single day.

    I am looking forward to learning more about your inspiration wire. What a great activity for Emily to be involved in.

    Your gratitude jars are perfect. Such a neat idea to list what you are grateful for and then ways in which you can express this. I love that most of your expressions of gratitude involve giving.

  7. That's so sweet. … How fun to get surprise visits.

    Congrats on the interview. I am on the way there to check it out.
