March’s Favorite Things

It’s so hard for me to believe we’re at the end of March (do I sound like a broken record?)!  We’re entering that crazy time of year that reeks of madness… the fun kind of course. If you’re a mom with kids in school, you might as well tether your calendar to your waist and fire up the checkbook.  It’s year-end this and year-end that headed your way before you know it. 🙂

I’ve got some AWESOME favorites from March, so rather than wait until the official last day of the month, I’m sharing them NOW. 🙂  Ready?

1.  My “other” job.  Teaching Little People, that is.

You see, March is that wonderful month here in Atlanta, when we can get outside for a good part of the day — no coats necessary.  It’s the month when I get to celebrate my birthday with Little People that celebrate every. single. day. so they know how to do it!  And the dads come in for Donuts for Dad.  And we get to hunt for four-leaf clovers…

…and anything else that strikes our fancy.  Put a magnifying glass in the hands of a child and watch the magic happen.  You’ll see the world with new eyes. Yep.  I get paid for days like that. 🙂

2.  The beach.  The hubby and I take a break from reality every March and head to a little slice of paradise on the Gulf.

These were ours for three glorious days.


Yes.  This girl knows how to celebrate a birthday. 🙂  If you ever need pointers, I’m your gal!

3. Fancy Little Things…

I officially joined FLT in January as their For The Home author and we just relaunched this month!  I’m honored to be working with these incredible Christian women who walk the walk every day and share at FLT.  There’s something for everyone there — fitness, book reviews, DIY projects, marriage, parenting, faith, and home and garden. Come by and celebrate with us HERE!

4.  Pass It On Project…

How to describe this most wonderful thing I am a part of?  A group of inspired bloggers got together and decided the world needed a little more kindness — the sort of kindness that is “just because.”  And these bloggers are super-talented creative minds, so their kindness is manifested in sweet projects, gifted in pairs, to other bloggers who would help spread the love and the word.  I was approached by the marvelous-in-everyway and impossible to resist KariAnne of Thistlewood Farm to participate and this is what came my way last week.

KariAnne crafted this wonderful canvas just for me… notice the wording?  My tagline from Decor & More… could she be any more thoughtful?  And along with this lovely for me came this companion piece for me to pass on…

And today this gorgeous canvas is en route to a very special gal that could use a little pick-me-up.  I’ll introduce you to her next week, but suffice to say, this work of art will be cherished and pondered every day.  I’m also working on my special project to send to a wonderful blogger… more on that later, too.  I’m so honored that KariAnne chose me as one of her Pass It On recipients.

I’m reminded every day how blessed I am!

KariAnne’s DIY for these pieces is available HERE.

Care to join in?  We all know someone that could use a little kindness, no?

it all started with paint

Okay, so now it’s your turn!  What were your favorites from March??

  1. WOW! That is quite a March. I loved working with preschool age kids 🙂

  2. Heidi,

    I love the description you gave me. Let’s just say it one more time, “the marvelous in everyway hard to resist karianne”. I love it! This is how I am describing myself from now on! Thanks for participating and it looks like March was incredible.


  3. Aren’t Kari’s canvases just beautiful!! You’ve had quite the month. I, too, find myself always wondering how time flies by so fast.

    If you hear of anyone posting a Pass It On project post I’d love to know. I’m adding links to all of the projects I know about in my post and pinning everyone’s projects. 🙂

    Have a great weekend,

  4. Just think if you were that TV mom, the one with the kids, what’s her name, OMG I can’t think of it, Gosslin, not as in Ryan… anyway, if you were her you could have that many kids looking through magnifying glasses every day.


  5. What a great month! I need to get my grandsons a magnifying glass 🙂 I love the gulf coast, looks like you really know how to celebrate! Love your gift from Karianne!
    Have a great weekend,

  6. Oh! The love you have for teaching little people shines right thru! And your canvas is so lovely! What a beautiful gift! It’s really gorgeous! Angie xo

  8. Heidi…you are so right…KariAnne IS..marvelous in every way and impossible to resist!…

    I too was an honored recipient of her project…I have finished mine to pass on and sending KariAnne’s “gift of love” to my friend Ruth..
