It Must Be Christmas - Stephen Bautista

My husband singer/songwriter Stephen Bautista just finished his brand new Christmas song, “It Must Be Christmas.” I couldn’t wait to share it with you, so he made a home recording and put it up on You Tube just in time for Christmas! I’d love it if you had a listen. If the video isn’t showing up here, you can pop on over to You Tube and have a listen…

Truth in the Tinsel

Three things before we begin: This is last year’s review of Truth in the Tinsel, before we got into it much. I’m reposting this, because we really liked it, and I share things I like with you…because I like you. This post contains affiliate links. In fact, I think all the links are affiliate links. Whoa. Intense. If you want to skip my review and…

But…crafts are fun, and as long as you commit to not overdoing it, I will post the occasional simple, affordable, totally doable project. Cross your heart?…

The Perfect Holiday Redefined (www.TheSimpleHomemaker.com)

As mid-November rolls around, the fever hits. It begins with a little tickle, almost an itch, and in no time at all it is an all-consuming full body rash. It’s Holiday Fever! Do you feel the tickle? There’s nothing wrong with Holiday Fever that is kept in check, but when it isn’t caught early, it can take down a full-grown mama and her family, too, as collateral…

Affording a Large Family

Rumor has it that raising a child through the age of 17 costs two hundred thousand dollars. That’s $200,000…which is a lot of zeros. Want to send them to college? Better get used to living in the poor house. Want more than two children? It’d be cheaper to get a lobotomy. (And most people will assume you have had a lobotomy if you’re crazy enough…
