March 29th, 2024

I had a reader request to know other crafty and inspirational midlife bloggers. There are too many to count, but I thought it would be appropriate to share the ones I, follow (which means I sign up for their emails and you should too). A couple of these women I have met in person, while the others I follow along to get a wide variety of knowledge. Quote of the day: “The more you engage, the more you learn about different ways that people believe and worship, the more you can sit next to anyone and be a neighbor.” Jennifer Garner These are not the only midlife bloggers I follow, but I wanted... Continue Reading

How To Mix Textures In Clothing For Spring
March 27th, 2024

As a knitter, I appreciate textures like you wouldn’t believe. This is one reason I wanted to talk about how to mix textures in clothing. Quote of the day: “It’s important to know when to stop taking feedback to heart. There’s more reward in taking a risk than in listening to naysayers who don’t understand the mission.” Misty Copeland I remember one woman saying that you shouldn’t wear a silky top with a pair of cotton pants. And I was perplexed about why she thought this way. And she was a quilter, no less. Yet we have many fashion “rules” that don’t make sense when we sit... Continue Reading

3 Attractive Yellow And Orange Outfit Ideas
March 21st, 2024

Bo, from our Ageless style group, thought we should style the colors from Pantone’s top color trends for Spring of 2024. The idea is for bold transformation so I had the three of us style yellow and orange outfit ideas. Quote of the day: “Genius is nothing more nor less than childhood recovered at will.” Charles Baudelaire Remember the days when you were young and carefree (I’m talking young kidhood) and you would mix colors with no cares in the world. Then we grew up and heard “too much color”, “people should see you, not the outfit” or my all-time favorite, “I can’t pull... Continue Reading

Simplistic & Easy Sock Organization Ideas
March 20th, 2024

Who knew I would be discussing sock organization ideas? Can there be that many ways to keep your socks in place? I’ve lived 50 years doing it one way, and I never thought about changing it up, until Lisa asked me about sock organization ideas when I was putting together a closet organizational presentation. Quote of the day: “Truth is a pathless land.” Jiddu Krishnamurti One of my superpowers is to functionally organize a space. Not that I always keep it that way or not that it always looks perfect like it’s out of a magazine. This is real life that I showcase. So before I get to the... Continue Reading

How To Style Graphic Tees Thriftily
March 18th, 2024

I came up with the idea of how to style graphic tees when Nancy suggested showstopping graphic prints. Graphics can be interpreted in many different ways, and because society has gotten more casual in the last 10 years, I wanted to showcase how my family wears graphic tees. Even my husband. Quote of the day: “In sports, one of the primary sources of advantage is choosing how to play the game. In life, one of the primary sources of advantage is choosing which game to play.” James Clear This quote struck me as golden. Because many people decide to stop playing the style game when they get older,... Continue Reading
