Time for a new cartoon! There is a lot going on in this image. On one hand, I want to pretend to be serious and say that it is some kind of social statement.
On the not-so-adult-other-hand...
If you grow a garden, you probably like seeing butterflies, bees and birds (the three "B's") flitting among the flowers.
They aren't just pretty and fun to watch. They are also important to your plants (and everyone else's too!)
And since it's spring, it's the perfect time to plan on attracting these wonderful creatures to your garden. Here is how you can do just that!
Save Money on Groceries With Brave Cooking Techniques
Your definition of "dump" cooking and mine are probably different. My definition rarely has anything to do with crock pots or "one-pot" meals. I'm sure though, that "saving money" is a term we both like.
When I use the term "dump cook", it's just a term in my family for people who don't follow recipes or measure ingredients (or at least, do so rarely).
How on earth could that possibly save you money?
Doesn't the sound "dump" just sound like a waste of food?
Did you know that all cats are master's of success? Yeah, its true. They have one big goal in life.
Being a cat.
And it takes almost every minute of their day to be a successful cat.
Think about it. Cats make success look effortless. They have their share of haters, sure. But they also have millions of adoring fans, they harness their influential powers, and they walk into every situation like a boss.
Maybe your idea of success isn't to be a cat, but that doesn't mean you can't use these tips from real-life cats to help you pounce on your own life and and business goals:
Why Are We Still Doing Things the Hard Way?
Are our modern lives really as easy as they could be? I mean, we've come a long way from a decade ago when we were all still gnawing on raw dinosaurs...or maybe that was two decades ago.
But we humans are supposed to evolve and learn as a species. Things change, we learn new tricks, and hopefully some of those tricks make our lives less-stressful.
So why are we still doing so many things the hard way in the modern world? Here is my theory, and a few examples of things that really need to change, because they just don't make sense anymore!

Spring Clean Your Blog In A Few Easy Steps
Ugh! Do you need to clean your blog? It seems like I am constantly finding things I need to freshen or tune-up. And just like I'm crazy about trying to find the perfect place to put things in my home, I drive myself batty organizing and rearranging my blog.
But the benefits of cleaning your blog up are worth the time and trouble. Every time I do a freshen up, I notice:
Those are great reasons to set aside a few hours to spring clean your blog, right?
Getting it all done at one time will leave you feeling refreshed too, and you will be able to get back to doing what you do best...creating awesome stuff!
The great news is that it isn't that hard at all. I've put together the list of steps below. Just follow along, and clean up the parts that apply to you specifically:
For today, a new motivational art print. Lots of things can "move mountains", such as faith, a bulldozer, an really big mudslides.
But I like to think creativity can do the job too, and leave everyone smiling (rather than all hot, sweaty, and covered in mud.)
And yeah, there is a life metaphor there. Sometimes stuff seems impossible. Or at least impossible for one person to do alone. When you face obstacles like that, you can either work hard and get it done one piece at a time, or you can get creative and find alternative solutions.
Creative solutions aren't always easy. Sometimes they set you back when they fail. But if you keep trying, and keep thinking, and keep using your imagination, you can do it. Whatever it is.
Along the way, you may have more fun, and may discover better solutions to common problems.
And that is today's motivational art print message. Move mountains. But move them your way. Have fun. Get it done. Smile.
