Power of Positive Summit

“If that’s what’s important to you, than that’s what you have to model. The people we have the privilege of leading, they are always learning but sometimes we are not always aware of what we are teaching them.” – Joshua Medcalf.

Think about this quote in regard to being a mom, wife, friend, etc. I don’t think it has to necessarily apply in the business world. Loved his video, go check out the whole thing, it’s only 5 minutes and has been my favorite thus far in The Power of Positive Summit.

Celebrating Auburn and Alabama Students

Whether you are attending or graduating from one of these fine Alabama Institutions, Rustic Charm has these Auburn and Alabama wreaths that would make perfect graduation presents!! Think of how cute the dorm room door or first apartment would look!!  Or if you’re like me and not an Auburn or Alabama fan, maybe Mississippi State, she can custom make you your team colors!!

Karma is a funny thing

So remember last year, Abigail’s softball team made it to the final championship and we had to win both of the last 2 games to win? We batted first, the first game with the rule being we would be batting last the second game . If we won of course…

Then…we WON… which no one expected us to do. Thanks, the league president even had the nerve to say that to my husband, the pitching coach!

Then while our girls are getting ready for game 2, the League President decided that that rule was no longer in affect and the other team got to bat last… again.

So we lost that game…

After it went into overtime (which it isn’t supposed to do) until they finally won at last bat.

It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Seriously, it was like something out of a movie plot. I had no idea grown adults behaved this way in 8U sports.

So I am enjoying this small bit of karma right here… I don’t know what he did. He may even be innocent (for his family and his school, I sincerely hope he is), but the fact that he is being investigated and hopefully being given hell, gives me some small bit of pleasure. I know, I am a terrible person for feeling this way but mama bear is still pretty ticked that her girl had to see this sort of ridiculous crap at 8U softball.

Vintage Holiday Invitation

This one was originally designed as a Holiday Baby Shower invitation for a friend of mine having twins! She is having a vintage themed shower and it’s in December so this was a fun project. I really enjoy the unique requests like this. She and I loved how this one turned out when printed on pearl  card stock but I knew that it was not a party that most would be having this time of year. After a few tweaks, the baby shower was turned into a merry party invitation.

2014 Christmas Card Colors

What should the 2014 Christmas Colors be? Are we back to traditional green, red and gold? Or is the bold movement of bright oranges, pinks and blues still popular?! I personally love bright, bold Christmas cards! This year I am going to attempt to get a funny photo of the girls for ours. They are still young and hopefully willing to play along! We shall see!
