How to Write a Better Thank You Note on Studio 5

Pin It!
We certainly are living in a digital age!  And it seems like with faster ways to communicate, hand-written notes are becoming more rare. But I think most people still love to receive "snail mail" or an old-fashioned note {even the teen-aged girls from church say they do}. 

























I recently came up with some tips & tricks to help teach young people how to write a better note. Brooke Walker from Studio 5 shares my passion for notes & paper & she asked me to be on the show to talk about it. {CLICK HERE for the link to download the free graphics above. They can be made into posters or flyers.} PS- I loved meeting Sally the Good Dinner Mom &I was the one she refers to in her TV segment when she said someone "stole" one of her biscuits. I'm hard core that way She said I could! {CLICK HERE for her amazing recipe.}

Here's the video from the show. {CLICK HERE} or see below:

Geometric Succulent Wreath - A Sara Jane Post

Pin It!
The content for this post was provided by my fabulous friend & contributor Sara Jane. CLICK HERE if you missed her introduction.

Months ago I was cruising the insanely creative Vintage Revival’s blog on and was captivated by the ingenuity of her DIY Geometric Wreath.  After months of rehashing the wreath tutorial in my brain and a pack of IKEA straws yelling at me, I was bursting to attempt my own creation for my front door. During my kids nap time, I completed the DIY craft in under 2 hours.

A Home Tour of the RJ Ranch Cabin

Pin It!
One of my favorite places in the world to visit is the cabin owned by Honey's brother & his wife {but to us they are always "Sis" & "Bro"}.  When friends & family gather there, it is truly a little slice of heaven.
