Stress Free New Year

Wow!  Things just seem to stay busy.  Trying to find an extra few minutes is getting harder and harder. I keep promising myself… “when things slow down I will…” but they never seem to do so.  Anyone else have that problem.

Stress Free PaperworkThis year I am looking for any and all ways to streamline how I do things in order to cause less stress.  This week my post for Nanahood focuses on my monthly bills and filing, ugh! I have never liked to file.  Check out this weeks post to see the method that is going to save my brain when it comes to tax time next year! I am so excited!!  No more filing!

Leave a comment with your favorite time (and brain) saving tips!!  I would love to hear from you.

Have a blessed day!

Creative Thinking

I love creativity. I love making things, anything crafty. I love that I see that same quality in my children. In this house it seems someone is always making something!

This week I have made final preparations for my last craft show appearance of the year. Once again checking over my items, my inventory, and making anything new that I can. I get so excited and love working with my ribbon and hot glue! I love making things that make others smile, especially kids, and that is part of what makes Faithfully Fun so, well, Fun!  I love the smiles on the little faces when they see each piece, especially the characters when they recognize what they are. (That also makes me feel like I did a good job if they know who it is supposed to be!)

This week two of the characters I focused were inspired by well-known books, Alice & Dorothy!

Alice Dorothy

There will also be my Faithfully Fun Friday post on Nanahood.com later today about these fun woven headbands that were just too cute not to make! 🙂

3 Finished

While you are there, be sure to check out the super fun giveaway based on the new Billy Crystal & Bette Midler movie “Parental Guidance.”  You can find it here.

Happy Friday,


Faithfully Fun News

Ok, that title may make this sound a little more important than it really it, but I can’t help it, I am so excited.  So much is going on right now for my little kitchen table company and I love it.  In two weeks I will set up my items at a Holiday Bazaar/Craft fair.  Although I won’t get to stay there all day personally, my dear Mama Robin is going to finish the day for me!  I hate to miss the show but it is for a good reason (I mean your nephew only turns the big 1-0 once!)

I have so many new items in the works for that show. I am hoping to continue to spread the word about my ribbon business!  If you will be in the Bowling Green, KY area on November 3, from 9am-2pm come by and say hi at Warren East High School! (Picture is from recent show set up at Jackson’s Orchard Childrens Day!)

Then in December I will be setting up for yet another bazaar.  I love it, I would sign up for more but I don’t want to over extend myself. It takes so long to make the items (especially with three kids who constantly need something 🙂  I am afraid to put myself out for more than I can handle.

A couple other big changes for Faithfully Fun are in the works as well.  For starters, I am now on Twitter!  Oh my, yes, I know, taking a big leap into the world, but I think its about time! (he he he)  Please check out the box on the sidebar and follow me!

I am also starting to build my Etsy store! I only have a few items up but am planning on getting my new items up as soon as I can!  I appreciate everyone’s support you have shown so far and I ask for your continued prayers and support as I continue on.

Please continue to stay tuned her and to Nanahood.com.  This Friday will be the last giveaway for the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month).  I am so happy with the responses I am getting from this and even more thrilled that I am able to do even a small part to help raise awareness so this monster can be beat for good!

Be sure and follow Myhouseandme, as well as Nanahood, so you stay up to date on the giveaways that will be taking place in November and December!  It is almost as exciting to give things away as it is to win (almost!) 🙂

Thanks for letting me share my “news” with you! Be sure and follow me for future updates!

Have a great week and God Bless!

Faithfully Fun is Thinking Pink

I have been so happy this month to be focusing on Breast Cancer awareness with Teresa at Nanahood.com!  Nanahood is blogging pink until there is a cure but for the month of October it is like pink on steriods! Everything is about getting the word out there, getting the focus on awareness and doing anything we can as indiviuals to help find a cure!

I am trying to help do my small part to get the word out there this month.  Each week in October, through my Faithfully Fun Fridays posts we are giving away a new Think Pink creation.  The first week was the Think Pink Heart.

The response was wonderful.  Thanks to sales from this pin after the giveaway Faithfully Fun was able to make its first donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure though the Nanahood team!  I am so happy to be able to do even  a little bit to help others with what they are struggling with!

Last week the pin given away was the Pink Ribbon Butterfly.  Again these are now for sell and a portion of each one sold will go straight to breast cancer research through her team.

If you are interested in how you can help please be sure and visit Nanahood.com today!  If you would like one of these pins for yourself or for a family member please send me a message or find me on our Faithfully Fun facebook page!  The heart pins are $6 each and the butterfly pins are $8.

Be sure and follow Nanahood.com so you won’t miss a moment of the Think Pink drive! Check back this Friday for my new post and to see the new design that we will be giving away and what you can do to win!  I really appreciate all the support everyone has shown and hope in some small way we are showing all those out there who are suffering from this monster that we care!

Thank you!


You Can Do Something

October is a big month for a lot of people.  A month to celebrate a lot of things.  It is also Pink Month to remember those battling breast cancer.  Breast Cancer Awareness is a big part of Nanahood and their mission to Blog Pink Til There’s A Cure!  This entire month is related to Breast Cancer Awareness and getting out there to let people know that we may not be able to do it all, but everyone can do something.

Be sure and follow Nanahood.com for all the new posts.  Also this month will be some Pink giveaways. Starting today with the Think Pink Heart from Faithfully Fun!  Check out today’s post to see how you can win and let others know you care!
