‘Tis the season. The season to get ready for the holiday season. The one where we start to think about how we decorated for the holidays last year … and how we’ll do it this year.
I actually started this blog on November 1st last year and pretty quickly joined a crafting competition at Mega Crafty. The challenge was to decorate a tree for under $20. I came up with some pretty fun homemade Christmas ornament ideas that hardly cost me anything.
Since there were about 3 of you reading last holiday season, I’ve rounded up what we made to show off our 11 DIY Christmas Ornament Ideas.
Sing it with me now …

sending out an s-o-s,
sending out an s-o-s,
message in a booooooottle.”
Did you watch the Hurricane Sandy fundraiser on Friday night? (more…)
So, let me get this straight …
We went on vacation for 10 days. A little rest and relaxation with my love. A little exploration of a new country. Our first trip to Central America.
*sorry for the water spot on the picture, I guess that’s what happens when you rappel down a waterfall with your point and shoot in a zip lock bag.
And while we were hangin’ in the rain forest, with hardly any connection to our real life, the World Series went down in 4 games, Taylor Swift and some Kennedy broke up (I feel a new song coming on) and a super storm took down the Jersey Shore, NYC and many other areas of the northeast?
Ay yay yay!! Here’s hoping you and everyone you know and love are safe and sound.
And here’s to realizing with great clarity how insignificant some things can be, when real life is dealing with loss of power and light and fuel and everyday people are digging through grocery store garbage bins looking for their next meal.

Happy Blogiversary to us! Me and you. This blog and these readers. We’re a match made in Heaven, really. :)
This first year on the blog has been Ah. May. Zing!!! Seriously.
A HUGE window to the world wide web of like minded people like YOU. So thank you for being here too.
In honor of this first year blog anniversary, I thought it’d be fun to share 31 random things you might not know about me and this blog. And even as I type that I’m thinking “I’m not sure anyone cares”, but whatev.
In October the Nester has an annual series called 31 days. Her challenge is to pick a topic to blog about every day in October. For 31 days.
Challenge equals not excepted. ;)
Not only do I not have anything
interesting for other people that I’d like to write about for 31 straight days. I don’t really have any interest in blogging for 31 days straight. Helloooo. That’s like everyday. ;)
So here is my very own 31 things version. (more…)
This week marks a milestone here at the space between. (Ceeeeeee-le-brate good times, come on!)
*I do not know those people.
We’ve been here, spewing out randomness to you for one whole year!
Can you believe it? Me either. ;)
I can honestly say I had no idea what I was doing when I hit publish on my very first post.
*I’m not making a political statement here, just a confused statement. (more…)
Other possible titles for this post include “people shaming”, “oh no you di-en’t” or “top twelve reasons my dogs are thankful they are my dogs and not Lisa’s”.
Hey, hey! Happy Monday! How are you?
I am great!
I am gearing up for company to come visit. FUN!!
That’s one thing about living on an island. We get our fair share of visitors. :)
mostly like them all. ;) We had about a year there where we had at least one week of company every month. I became quite the tour guide. Hence my knowledge of the top 10 free things to do in Curacao. I’m ready to get to doing a few of those again soon.
You know how it goes, don’t you?!? You have these really cool things to do in your town, but you don’t usually do them unless you’re showing them to visitors.
Or you have this really cool room in your house … or on the roof as it may be … and you don’t spend as much time up there as you could. Because it’s always there. I’ll just go up tomorrow. Or next week. Or sometime soon, for sure! :)
Ummmm, have you ever totally meant to do something for months and just never did?
That’s what happened to me here.
I wrote a tutorial of the very first pallet project I made for a guest post and never came back and gave you guys the how-tos.
And the guest post was in January. :/
Anyhow … here’s the story of my very first pallet project. Well, for the blog anyway … me and pallets go way back. ;)
