My Plan of Happiness

Not to be confused with The Great Plan of Happiness.

I have to put things in categories.  My brain gets too confused if I don't.  Sooooo, I 'm going to try having 3 blogs instead of one.  Do you think that will make me feel organized and happy?  Maybe it will be too overwhelming, we'll see.
Here is the plan...

This blog will be a fun place where I can talk about projects I do, raising kids, life lessons, organizing, planning, cooking, books, fun local places, hair, clothes, jewlery, health... you get the idea.
Like this menu board I made
Or this little angel that joined our family

Scatter Sunshine in my soul will be more of an LDS blog.  So much of what I have to say is of a spiritual nature which I know everyone doesn't want to read.  So here I will blog about visiting teaching, activity days, fhe, raising kids, life lessons, church activities, scriptures, lds books, goals, etc...
Like this cute Book Of Mormon cover we made in activity days

and this cute thought to hand out when I go visiting teaching.

Then last but not least is Decor Adrenaline.  I am excited for this blog to be a place where I can show off fun crafts and decorating that I find throughout the community and blogging world.
Oh, I so want to take a nap there tomorrow.
Oh ,how I love that floor!

Oh boy, this is gonna be fun.  Join me if you'd like!
(I so wish I knew how to do a smiley face)

I'm back!!!

Have you ever met a true perfectionist? I don't know if I am one or not. But I have symptoms
of one. I feel like I have to do something right in order to do it at all. Do you know what that
means in my life? A lot of things don't get done. Because I can't do them the way I have
envisioned in my little perfectionist brain.
Like this blog.

As I started looking at more and more blogs, I realized that I didn't REALLY know what I was
doing, I was not posting regularly, I was unorganized and I didn't have a plan. So I stopped.
But I miss it.
I miss having a little virtual place of my own.
So..... I'm back.
And here's the thing...

So I am just going to blog.  I'm going to figure out new things and try them and experement and just be me. 
It's good to be back!

Love to create?

I would simply be a bad friend if I did not introduce you to one of my favorite places to be in the whole world. U Create. Love it. Have to visit it. Often.
She is the first creative blog I found and through her I found lot's of blogs that I love. But she was my first love.
If it is popular trends in decor you want.....
She's got it.

How cute are these made out of cupboard door frames! I can't stand it. She found these at

Or how about this hallway she found at I sooooo want to do this.

She shares my love of owls. I soooo love owls. Aren't these so cute!

She has totally functional ideas like this towel tote from and how cute are these gloves. Wouldn't you almost feel like a queen scrubbing toilets with these on? Almost?
And my soooo favorite one of all. I actually have this in progress in my laundry room as we speak, the greatest organizing tool ever!

So, go visit her. You'll love her. I know you're going to thank me for introducing you to her. Have fun!!!!!

soap box

Pardon me while I step up on to my soap box for a minute.
I just had a conversation with my family about politics. I know, talk about opening up a can of worms. It wasn't a contentious conversation. We were just trying to find out the newspaper that was the leased biased. Is there one? Everyone is just trying to push their agenda.
My biggest pet peeve is when celebrities try to tell you how they think it is. Then they make you feel, in a very subtle way that you are ignorant or naive or just plain stupid if you don't have the same opinion as they do.
Anyway, that's my humble opinion. I know, political posts make people uncomfortable, sorry about that. And now I will climb down from my soap box.

A little bit crazy

So there I was....
My two cute nieces were sleepin over this weekend for my daughters birthday and there were messes everywhere and makeovers and all kinds of fun. I was just being my normal self which is a little bit.. um, I don't know how to describe it. Anyway, my one niece said, "you have just a little bit of crazy in you." THAT is true!!!! Then she said that she wished her mom had a little bit of crazy too. Her mom is super organized and fun to talk to. But not crazy. My daughter says its not so much crazy , as it is, fun.
I think I'm just plain crazy. I have a crazy life, and a crazy family, and crazy friends. Sorry if you are offended by that. It's not meant to be offensive. And being crazy is the only way I stay sane.

Haiti's little lost one's

I can't stand it! I sit in the comfort of my home surrounded by my loved one's and watch the images of little lost and crying babies on the tv. I see their beautiful brown skin and dark brown eyes, so much like my little baby, only they are filled with pain, and confusion, and suffering. There are so many. I overflow with feeling towards them and want to go with hundreds of friends and each scoop up a dozen of them and bring them safely into our life, and hug and snuggle the pain and fear away. There are over 1 million orphaned children in Haiti now, that's what they are estimating. Can that really be true? One million of our brothers and sisters in little bodies wandering the broken streets of Haiti lost and hungry and not knowing who to go to for help. No one to take care of them. And to make matters worse. By night, evil men come and steal these little wandering babies and sell them into the worst imaginable circumstances. I can't stand it!
The brethren have urged us to give to the humanitarian fund all we can to help these little ones. And perhaps, more than anything, we can pray for them. Plead to our Heavenly Father in behalf of these children. That he will surround them with peace and comfort, which we know he can and does.
The hard part for me is that, there were 300,000 orphans before the earthquake. 300,000. And how many in Etheopia, and China, and all over the world. As a mother, my heart reaches out to these little children. I believe with all my heart that I was called to be a mother, long before I ever came to earth, and with all my mother's heart, I will be praying for these little lost one's tonight.
