An announcement...

I have been putting off writing this post for a couple of weeks now.
I have been bouncing back and forth.
I haven't wanted to actually say it "out loud" until I had made a final decision.
But now I can say that I know exactly what I have to do.
Exactly what I need to be doing.
I have had a lot of different things going on around me.
I have some family situations weighing on my mind.
I have had some new, exciting opportunities.
And some things just aren't feeling right anymore.
I am sad and a little excited to announce that I am
taking a break from the Photography business.
I have had so many great clients.
I have learned so so many things.
But it has consumed my days, nights, and weekends lately.
I feel like I haven't had the time to learn from it, like I was in the beginning.
I feel like I have forgotten what I LOVED so much about it.
So as of now...
I am not working until after the new year.
I have some new responsibilities.
I am the new President of the Elementary PTO.
A job that I am very excitied about.
I feel like the reason that I stay home is to be there for my kids.
They are the most important thing to me.
Lately, they have been put off because I am so busy.
Being the President is going to require a lot of my time.
Time that I am eager to give.
I also have some other exciting news.
That I will share soon...
(and no...I am not announcing a new baby)
So, Thank You to all of my clients.
I have loved every minute that I have shared with your families!

Tips and tricks...

I want to share things...
(nice of me, right?)
You know when you read something or someone tells you some strange tip and you wonder if it works. And if you are like me you forget and never try it. So I am going to add this feature to my blog.
I am going to call it Tips and Tricks.
(pretty creative, right?)
I will share stuff that I have tried...
If you want to share,
then I will let you guest on my blog and share your weath of knowledge.
If you want me to try something...
I will and share my results.
So for my 1st one.
I swear by Dawn.
My mother-in-law told me to try it to remove grease from a rug.
And it worked, like a charm.
So, after I had my 1st baby and we had our 1st yellow baby blowout.
I tried it on the tiny pink pj's...
and it took that yellow stain out!
And now I use it for everything.
Because my hubby has to wear a white shirt everyday to work,
I have made my own "Dawn and Wash"
Here is what I do to get rid of that
yucky ring around the collar...
And dirty areas...
Dawn (you can use any of them I have tried them all)
a Dollar Store spray bottle
my old toothbrush
(because someone gave it to the baby, who ended up sharing it with the dog)
I mix 2 tablespoons of Dawn to a little more than half of the bottle with water.
Give it a little shake and that is all!
1st Spray with Dawn and water mixture...
and scrub with your toothbrush...
and Ta Da....
It really works!!
And I use it on EVERYTHING.
Punch stains, oil stains, grease stains, a bad accident with chocolate milk and carpets, and it even has taken out set in stains on my favorite t-shirt!
It's a pretty cheap alternative to spray and wash and other stain removers.
I feel that it actually works just as good,
I think it works even better!
Try it and let me know what ya think!
