 The Best of 2014


“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” 
 — Ralph Waldo Emerson


As I looked through my posts from this last year, I came to realize that it was my best blogging year for number of readers/followers {thank you}and my worst year for the number of posts I wrote.

I just wasn't feeling as creative this year, but I am not ready to pack it in. There are still stories to be told and projects to be completed!

Here are the best projects we did this year....





I wish you all the happiness for your best days ever in 2015. I will still be here...trying to make a few Miner adjustments to this crazy, beautiful life! 
Happy New Year!

Twirl and Take a Bow Link Party...The Last One


Happy End of 2014, everyone! As the year winds down and I start to freeze the left over cookies, for when we are wanting a sweet treat in February, I think over the last year of this link party.

It was full of wonderful inspiration and I have enjoyed it immensely. Leslie; however, has decided that today will be the last Twirl and Take a Bow Party. 

So here is to you and your wonderful projects! We will all still be reading. Enjoy the inspiration!

Twirl and Take a Bow


It is an exciting week around here. My family is coming into town for a few days. We can't wait to see all of them.

But first, a link party and features that will help you remember whose gifts are whose.

Enjoy the inspiration and Merry Christmas, everyone!

Twirl and Take A Bow


Can you believe that Christmas is only a little over a week away? Are you finished with your shopping? Your wrapping? I am about half way there. I wanted to be finished a couple weeks ago, but I lost my mojo.

I think I was too busy reading all the great blogs that link up with us every week.

Enjoy the inspiration!

Owl Always Love You



Have I mentioned that my mom is super crafty?  Sewing and knitting mostly, but over Thanksgiving vacation she found a great idea on Pinterest and put it into action.  

I would have helped her, as I love to get crafty too; however, I found some free moments to go out and see many wonderful friends that I haven’t seen in a long time. 

And staying friends with smart, beautiful women that live many hundreds of miles away is a craft in and of itself. 

I would be lost without those souls in my life.

Party Time. Party Time. Excellent. {Twirl and Take a Bow}



I loved "Wayne's World" when I was a teen. Especially the part where they pretended to be Laverne and Shirley. It was such a fun and silly movie. Did you see it and love it as much as me?

And let me say...there is also a lot of fun, with none of the silly in Robin's features this week.

How's that for a segue? Corny, I know. Or maybe I am just delirious from all the gift wrapping I have been doing.


Anyway....{long awkward pause}....enjoy the inspiration!

Twirl and Take a Bow Linky Party


Did everyone have an awesome Thanksgiving! Hopefully it was fun and you ate lots of good food! I spent part of my holiday under the house in our crawl space fixing a burst pipe. Yes, you heard it right, I Lesley, fixed a pipe under my house. I have to say I actually surprised and impressed myself. 
I wonder how many neighbors heard me screaming "I DID IT" from under my house? To find out all about this adventure make sure you have subscribed to our email. Tomorrow I will go in to great detail about the one tip/tool that could save you thousands! Subscribe here. Mom on the other hand spent the weekend cutting down limbs with her new favorite toy. Check out her new toy by Mantis. You have to get one! 

Sawing the branch

In other news our elf "SCOUT" has reappeared from the North pole to monitor Jude's behavior and report back to Santa. Needless to say that Elf ain't got nothing on Jude. He honestly could not care less that the Elf is watching him. In fact I think the Elf has made things worse in some ways. Jude loves seeing his new hiding spot in the morning but I believe he's honestly a little creeped out by this whole charade.
I asked the kids in my class today if they had an elf and if it had appeared this weekend. They all confirmed that they each had an elf but some have not seen him/her make their appearance yet. 
Do you have an Elf? It's ok to say you don't ... but if you need an idea for an elf scroll down and check out our features.
We'd love to see more of  you ... follow us on FACEBOOK or SUBSCRIBE

20 Pound Turkey, Please Twirl and Take a Bow


On Saturday, we had Thanksgiving dinner for my husband's side of the family. That morning the hubs got up...cleaned the bathrooms, mopped the kitchen floor and then proceeded to make a fabulous feast!

{If you think I didn't help....you would be mostly correct.  
I did; however, set the table and make the gravy}.

He was so proud of himself for finishing with time left over to take a nap.

Then it started to rain. And it was only 33 degrees out, so we all know that freezing rain doesn't follow too far behind.

We crossed our fingers that our family wouldn't cancel. We crossed our fingers that the rain held off.

Lucky for us, most everyone else was able to get here and we were not left to eat a 20 lb turkey all on our own! Can you imagine?? And it was delicious!

I know that Thanksgiving isn't officially here, but in my mind, we are finished {don't worry, Mom and Dad we are still coming for dinner on Thursday}.

So I am feeling more Christmasy these days. Our elf is even going to show up here today, I just have a sneaking suspicion.

Let's see what you have been working on! Enjoy the inspiration!
