Project Runway: You complete me

Project Runway: You complete me
An eternity ago, or so it seems I planned to be a fashion designer. From the age of 9 or 10, I remember dreaming of it, praying for it and knowing that one day I would be famous. I still have my sketch books from back then and all the garments I designed when I... Read more »

Pay it forward. Even in the smallest ways.

Pay it forward. Even in the smallest ways.
It’s been awhile since I first heard the saying “pay it forward” but it resonated within me and has stayed ever since. The idea of doing something nice for someone and that niceness spreading to others could make for a much better world to live in. People are quick to tell others when someone has... Read more »

Garage sales should be obsolete

Garage sales should be obsolete
I’m sure my title will create some pissy commentary but after the last two days I can’t help myself. I had sworn off them before but having had a large amount of furniture and retail fixtures left over from the store I closed 2 1/2 years ago, I thought I would give it one more... Read more »

Casey Anthony and Scott Peterson two of a kind
Being as obsessed as I am with true crime stories I followed the Casey Anthony story closely. In the past year I have also read every book available on Scott Peterson, convicted and currently on death row for the murder of his wife Laci and their unborn son Conner. So many people have joked, including... Read more »

Not guilty still does not put Casey at the bat

Not guilty still does not put Casey at the bat
Once upon a time there was a beautiful little girl named Caylee Marie Anthony. And once upon a time, and all too soon there wasn’t. And no matter what our sad, sad legal system has to say about it, her mother (if you can call her that) Casey Anthony was responsible for the death of... Read more »

Casey Anthony could take a lesson from Charlene Spierer

Casey Anthony could take a lesson from Charlene Spierer
  There are still people that have not heard about Lauren Spierer, the Indiana University sophomore that went missing 4 weeks ago this morning. However, I am guessing there are very few people who don’t know who Casey Anthony is as her trial has been all over the news for the past 2 months. Charlene... Read more »
