My 16 Year Old Got a Tattoo

...well, not really.


We were watching NY Ink yesterday and my daughter asked me to give her a tattoo so I did. This is 100% freehand sharpies, no needles, pain or discomfort involved. And before someone says sharpies are not safe on skin, I've seen no evidence to that fact.

I've never been able to commit to real tattoos even though I think they're cool. Just can't imagine having an accessory that I could never ever change! Do you have a tattoo?

I have 3 tats myself first one not thought out too well and due to that fact having to get covered up with something else that i have now designed myself. My other two were thought out and designed by me and completed by my best mate who is qualified to do them as after the first I don't trust anyone to ink me now except for her.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles.

Sunshine and a Wasp Tale

Where is the sunshine?  The other day it came out for almost the entire day and it was glorious!  Did you see it at your house too? I miss the sunshine.  Kind of like I miss that little girl in the scrapbook page (who is now 16!). Now that my kids are grown or almost grown I also miss those kid experiences.  Playing outside with no real purpose, the sweet little voices, the unconditional hugs.  When they were little, my kids loved to play in the yard and at the park.  Personally, I have a love/hate relationship with the park and backyard swing sets .  Many years ago we had one of those big sturdy wooden swing sets that had a fort look-out, swings and a slide.  It was painted with a lovely dark green enamel paint and occupied its own sand lot on the side of the house.  Unfortunately, the local wasps also thought the swing set was lovely.  They built their little nests in every corner of that thing.  One day my youngest was out in just a diaper playing in the fort and made the wasps
