Summer has always been a favorite season of mine.

We can still have a cluttered home (and usually do) but if we decide to clean/purge we don't have an attic or basement overwhelming the task. Post-Christmas clutter isn't only gifts and new purchases cluttering your home. … Continue reading Peace be with you… and your messes (Global e-Links, January edition)
Greetings in this Advent season! Advent...what does it mean to you (other than getting-ready-for-Christmas)?
