A few weeks ago I felt impressed to talk to my girls about being Happy. So many times in our life we judge others, we talk about others, and say things about others all because we feel unhappy about ourselves, jealousy or guilt. We do these things because we are not truly happy with ourselves. We only see our glass half empty and want to feel better about ourselves. In the end, the opposite is true. We feel worse about ourselves and the cycle continues.

Growing up my mom would make porcelain dolls for a little extra income. We would make them from start to finish. I would clean greenware, wire bodies and dress the dolls. When I was about 6 years old I would sneak onto my moms sewing machine and practice sewing lines on fabric. I would sit and turn the knobs of her machine. Once she realized I was adjusting the the tension she decided to teach me how to sew. I would make small pillows, pillowcases and drawstring bags. Playing around on the sewing machine became a fun hobby for me.
For today’s project I decided to get rid of my ugly rug and turn it into something amazing. I didn’t want to have to buy a new rug so I made a simple slip cover to make it match my style. I tried this once before with my large rug. The great think about this one is it is fast and easy to make with a small rug. It has an open bottom for easy removal and washing. I started by finding these amazing fabrics at Riley Blake Designs.
Usually around the 4th of July we have a small neighborhood BBQ. My neighbor brought over these amazing cupcakes. When I asked for the recipe she sent it on over. When I saw it used a box mix I just about died I had not idea a cake mix could taste so amazing. So I decided these were totally blog worthy. Your family, neighbors or party goers will want the recipe!! Check out the recipe below and make a batch tonight!
My family has always been big on patriotism. When I was a little girl we had an American flag my dad would hang from the top or our 1902 Victorian home. I think it was 20ft x 10ft. It was gigantic. It was always important to them that we showed appreciation for the men and women who have given there lives for our freedoms. I love that those values were instilled in me.
