Crafting and DIY Extravaganza!

We have been busy as bees having adventures in far flung places, and right in our own living room. Always learning, learning, learning. We have an amazing DIY deal to tell you about today, but first, I wanted to catch you up a little on what we have been doing – making lots of memories! Among which are… an amazing trip to China for Patti (!!) cooking, cooking, cooking Thanksgiving (in Texas and Hong [...] Read more »

An Adventure in Hawaii

A Hawaiian welcome -

A word or two from Mrs. Brown…  It has been non-stop fun for the Browns since early April! First we had a series of wonderful visits from family, then Abbie performed in the world premier of a musical, and then we hopped on a plane to Hawaii! We had all sorts of grand plans for posting from Hawaii… Abbie learned how to make a lei, and we even hunted down lei needles (ever heard of those?) Alas, a lack of flowers (the trees were all picked clean for Lei Day!) followed by a computer disaster, changed those plans. We are [...] Read more »

Nonetheless, we thought it would be fun to tell you a little about some of the things we did with them. Our cousins liked the farm. Though it was a little [...] Read more »
