Recently, I attended Denver Comic Con, and while I had a total blast with my youngest checking out all the cool cosplay outfits, browsing the hundreds of artist and merchandise booths, (and of course sampling the limited edition Hulks’ Mash ale!) the real motivation for attending was to scope out the educational aspect of the […]
We’ve loved the Denver Art Museum for many years–there’s always something new to see, and with make-it-yourself art stations and family backpacks full of activities, there is so much for families and kids to do and explore! So we were very excited to learn today that through the generosity of Scott Reiman and Kaiser Permanente, […]

Oh Coffee, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! Whether it’s freshly ground and brewed in my kitchen every morning, an afternoon drive through pick-me-up, or an espresso with dessert at a nice restaurant…it’s just soooo good! Any time, any way, I love the stuff. So you know I’ll be celebrating by […]
photo atasteofcolorado.com Taste of Colorado or, “The Taste” as we all know it, is a Labor Day tradition for Denver-ites. They’ve always been a mecca of free family entertainment and great food. We especially enjoy catching the nationally-known musicians. (EnVogue is going to be there this year! Total 90s flashback!) This year there’s […]
I love printables. In this digital world, you would think I would keep track of appointments, schedules, phone numbers, craft ideas, blog topics and more all in my phone or laptop. Nope. I’m a pen and paper kind of gal. I’ve seen so many printables over the years, but these are by far my favorites. […]
Ahhh…mid-summer. That magical time of year! It’s just flat out HOT. And heat makes for cranky, whiny kids. What’s the best way to snap a kid out of a rotten mood? Stick them in some water. Works every time! If you love the big, fast water slides, you’re in luck. The metro area is […]
Reading during the summer is an ideal way to help your kiddos keep up on their skills. And I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend a too-hot-to-play afternoon than laying in the shade with a book in hand. Some of us enjoy reading for the sheer pleasure of it, but plenty of […]
Earlier this Spring, I went on the hunt for burlap coffee sacks for my garden. I use them to line the bottom of my raised bed for drainage and weed barrier, to filter sunlight coming in from the south side of the yard, and this year I wanted to try my hand at growing potatoes […]

I used to have a laptop desktop that was so full of folders and random documents, I felt like the TV show Hoarders was going to come and yell at me for it’s condition. Really, it should have been condemned. I would be embarrassed when others would see my laptop.
Then I saw on Pinterest some desktop organizer images. What are these amazing things??!! I saw many that had different categories, calendars, photos and more. I thought to myself, “Self, You have photoshop and love to tinker around… You should make your own!” And that I did.
I’m pretty proud of this bad boy. But I didn’t want to keep it just for myself.
