Wax dipped toilet paper. Easy to do at home. Take your favorite color dollar store candle and melt it. Add some scent (or not), dip away until the roll is completely covered and looks the way you’d like it. This one took several dunks. Then let it cool to hardness and embellish. Voila!
I didn’t even know there was a National Boss’ Day but this post was irresistible.
Oh well, Happy Boss Day! And to all of you self employed folks, go treat yourself to a latte or a nice lunch…it’s National Boss’ Day!
Celebrating The Boss
“The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
Celebrated on October 16th, “National Boss’ Day” has become an international celebration and is observed in countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, India, South Africa, Ireland, and Egypt.

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and things have been super busy in my personal life. So here are a few of the things that we’ve been doing since my last post in June.

Aside from that, I’ve been juggling my toddlers and have had a lot of support from my older children, who just adore our newest addition – by the way. They’ve been cuddling and loving up little Jay while the middle children have wondered when they were going to get a turn. Like I said, it’s been super busy but it’s also been super wonderful with all this excitement. I’m a doting mama again and this whole experience has made me realize, once again, how wonderful motherhood is again, at all stages.
