Set of 4 Coffee Inspired Printables

I find that there are people you meet in life who make you want to drink. And then there are those you come across who make you want to drink coffee. Or tea.  Or hot chocolate. Really any warm beverage you can sip slowly – together – will do, if it gives you a few […]

Chalk-Give-Thanks-Printable.jpg

Fall Chalkboard Printable

I simply love this time of year!  With all the burlap accents, pumpkin scents & flavors, cute boots and scarves,…it’s like an annual reminder of why God gave us eyes and noses.  And necks to wrap things around. And the ability to pin hundreds of thousands of Fall inspirations without actually moving more than a […]

The Language of Empowerment {A Shameless Plug for our Favorite Parenting Series}

We’ve read lots of excellent parenting books over the years, but nothing has shifted our paradigms quite like Danny Silk’s Loving Our Kids On Purpose.  It rocked our parenting world.  It’s like Shepherding A Child’s Heart meets Parenting with Love and Logic, edited by Erma Bombeck.  It’s brilliant and simple and biblical and fun.  And […]

When Your Wings Are Weighed Down {plus Free Printable}

I have never been particularly business savvy. Partly because I just haven’t a clue what I’m doing. Most mostly because, if I’m honest, I’ve established really blurry boundary lines.  If boundaries at all. I have always struggled to find balance between my firm belief in the importance of generously sharing your unique talents and giftings […]

You Are Enough {Free Printable}

Not many words today.  Just a quick reminder that… YOU. ARE. ENOUGH. That nothing you do or say…or don’t do or don’t say…effects your worth. It’s a call to stop claiming your successes as luck, and your failures as confirmation of identity. A reminder that your inability to check every single thing off your daily […]

Lessons from Under the Bridge {plus a Hand-Doodled Printable}

I’ve been processing a lot over the summer – a lot of good, deep, heart stuff – and it’s been an incredibly liberating journey to say the least. Not always easy, but always good. As God has slowly been chipping away at the unsightly parts of my heart, dealing with misplaced priorities and my maternally-inspired […]

The Little Yellow Dresser Redo

I picked up this little dresser a few months ago when I was dropping things off at Salvation Army.  I unloaded my bags and boxes, got back in my car and started to drive away, but as I headed past the delivery truck unloading things just ahead of me…this little delight popped into sight. It […]

It’s That Time Again…And I Barely Pulled It Off.

Yelp!  How is it September already…and how did my babies suddenly turn into these fully grown miniature human beings with larger than life personalities with massive feet? This summer…if it can even be called that (for I can barely count the number of hot days on one hand) flew by like greased lightening.  The leaves […]

Camper-Art-Print.jpg

The Camper Life For Us {Free Printable}

This summer has been a delicious whirlwind of family and friends, sunshine, travelling and fun.  With very little else thrown in.  Hence the silence on this blog. Oh, I suppose there’s been food.  There’s always food.  Good food.  which explains the squishiness I’m pretending does not exist around my midsection.  But but’s another post for […]

On Being Rooted: Confessions of an Approval Addict {plus Free Printable}

A funny thing happens when you feel called to pour out your heart and soul, raw and unfiltered, on paper and offer it up as a broken prayer to an equally fragile world. You feel brave and courageous. On a mission and absolutely determined to hit the target, no matter the cost. The euphoria that […]

Faraway Friends & June Desktop Wallpaper

Ever totally fall in love with someone’s heart, develop the sweetest friendship over time…and never actually meet face-to-face? I love those unique heart connections that are made in unlikely ways, triggered by an encouraging email or a business-related phone call from across the miles.  It’s those sweet moments that weave two hearts together without groundwork […]

Keep Moving {Printable}

Ever feel out of balance?  Like a half-baked, multi-tasking failure? Hmm.  Me to.  While donning my wife hat, I strap on my momma bonnet and nestle on top of that my professional sombrero…then I attempt to keep my balance atop of this colorful unicycle of life, while juggling school and friends and church and laundry […]

Mother’s Day Printables {Set of 4}

Hello friends!  I’ve been laying low as I work out the final kinks in my manuscript and prepare for the release of my first book next month.  I fluctuate between being giddy with excitement…and being absolutely petrified.  It’s a wild dream come true as this book has been brewing for years, but with it finally […]

Puddle Jumpers

Our kids love water. They have always loved water. Especially when it resides in LARGE quantities in places OTHER than bathtubs and swimming pools. and when it involves shedding all clothes and decency and making as much mess as possible without having to clean an ounce of it back up. If it get gross and […]

It’s official.  Spring will be coming to Michigan this side of sometime.

March Desktop Wallpaper {and a subtle announcement}

I opened my laptop last night, after getting my kidlets settled into their respective beds, to write. Just write. Not edit.  Not criticize.  Not overanalyze every.single.word I type. Not sigh and slam close my laptop feeling discouraged and defeated.  Just write.  And drink lots of tea.  This always helps. I tend to be an overanalyzing […]

Life is Beautiful {Printable}

Oh, you guys!  I’m just so stinkin’ excited about life right now. You know when that stuff that makes your heart leap and your lips curve up and your eyes sparkle – that dreamy stuff that has bubbled just beneath the surface – which, I think is God’s way of preparing our hearts  – starts […]

Proverbs 31:25 {Printable}

I realize this post is painfully void of glitter and hearts, but I’m moving on, folks. Sure, there’ll be beet-hued, heart-shaped pancakes in the morning, buried under a mound of ripe strawberries – because I’m not getting out of a valentine’s day brouhaha that easily – but I’m forging into full Spring mode, with or […]

“Mother”: A Sweetly Delusional Song about Motherhood

Yo!  Life ain’t ho-hum When you spend your days as “mum” Just wipe that tiny bum While Sally sucks her thumb Hollah!   Okay, so maybe dropping the beat isn’t exactly in my talent department.  Or remotely in the same zip code. I am an excellent bum wiper, though.  They like the way I work […]

February Desktop Wallpaper

One of my absolute favorite things about my husband is that he not only tolerates my quirky, tea-chugging, creatively-scattered, easily-delighted self…but he celebrates all that makes me different.  He makes me tea every day, without being asked…because he knows it makes me smile.  Okay, function. He fills my pellet stove at 1 in the morning, […]

All You Need Is Love {Free Printable}

That squishy hallmark holiday is just around the corner and while I’m not quite ready to break out the pink heart garland, or adorn my life with red glitter {just yet}, I do confess I have a hankering for something other than Winter/Christmas/White or anything that even remotely represents “cold”. And while Valentine’s day – […]

Michigan Nail & String Art {and the Dresser Reveal}

Well, she’s up, sweet people.  The mitten nail and string art I documented on instagram over the weekend is finally complete and is presently adorning my studio wall.

Come, Let Us Have Some Tea {Printable}

While snowmageddon appears to have passed, we’re still freezing our little heinies off up here in the Midwest.  Our remedy in the McMuffin household is to throw some more logs onto the fire, huddle a little closer, and pour ourselves another cup of tea. It’s called survival.  It also happens to be called liquid awesome. […]

{Delicious} Raw Fudge Brownies

We may not have seen each other since we were 15, and we may literally live 8290 miles apart, but a mutual love of healthy treats has quickly reconnected an old childhood friend and I. Cacao is just that powerful, friends. She introduced me to this fantastic blog, My Rawsome Vegan Life, and while I […]

Toilet Paper Roll Mirror & Wall Art

I’ve been pinning toilet paper roll projects for months now because, let’s face it…the thought of making something this gorgeous out of bathroom garbage makes our little hearts go pitter-patter, it’s the ultimate rags to riches craft story…but can I just be totally honest for a moment?  The idea of saving rolls for months on […]

We’re just days away from a brand spankin’ new year, friends, and it’s good to be alive! And warm. It’s been über chilly up in these parts – a record high, I hear – and the snow and ice have been relentless in their coating of branches, roofs and small creatures who care not for […]

The Comparison Game {and Why it’s So Overrated}

I spent most of my adolescent years aching to be someone else.  Any body else. And while I can say that I’ve finally learned to embrace the quirky, awkwardly transparent, people-loving introvert I’ve grown into, I still occasionally stumble into that place of longing for the ability to behave or perform or create like another.
