Karla's Korner: Happiness

Happiness, defined by Webster’s Dictionary, means a state of well being, contentment and joy.

I have several examples of some amazing people who have chosen to live their lives happy no matter what their … [Read more...]

Karla's Korner : Fences

So I have a confession to make. I’m a country girl. I love country music, NASCAR and life in a small town. I grew up on a small poultry farm in rural Virginia.

How many times have we … [Read more...]

Ask A Blogger: How do you capture screenshots

I stumbled upon the awesome screenshot tool JING. The best part is it is free and easy to use. I love Jing so much because it downloaded easy on my Mac and my windows based computer. I made a little movie to demonstrate how easy Jing is. I made a video on how to use our printable grocery list. I only captured a small portion of our screen. … [Read more...]
