  1. Homeschool Room - Redone

    Time For a Change
    Now that I'm homeschooling middle and high school girls, it was time to change up the school room and make it a cool hangout for tween and teen gals (plus a 30-somthing mama). I spent a good part of two weeks cleaning out, rearranging, decluttering, and decorating. Here's the (almost) finished product.

  5. Fantasy or fandom -- how obsessed are you?

    In today’s world of celebrity culture, the number of obsessions seems to grow daily (“Bieber Fever” anyone?) You may not know that one of the earliest terms used to describe an extreme fan reaction to a musician was “Lisztomania.” Yes, emotional fan reactions at the concerts of pianist Franz Liszt in the 1840s generated the word, “Lisztomania.” Elvis Presley created this same type of hysteria when he exploded on the music scene in the 1950s.
