The Bina

I love this!  One of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe.  For less than $50 I get all these shirts in one.  Check it out by clicking the link below the picture.

Workplace Ministry

I am a Ph.D. student working on a doctorate in Human Resource Education.  I have spent the last 3 years doing research on virtual workplace teams.  I have recently decided to refocus my research interests from building trust in virtual workplace teams to workplace minitsry. By doing this I can research a topic that is important to me and also encompasses my faith.  Considering I am a devoted Christian, I have felt that my research should include my faith and I just recently figured out how to do that. 

The links below are great resources for others interested in workplace ministry:

My Wall of Necklaces


Using 3M hooks I hung about 50 of my necklaces on the wall in my dressing room. Cheap way to have all my necklaces displayed. No more tangled and knotted necklaces in my jewelry box.


High Heels Rack

I went to Menards and bought 3 pieces of molding for $1.99 each.  Cut them to size and nailed them to the wall.  Now I have a pretty place to hang my high heels

Refurbished Chair and Bench

Bought two chairs on Craigslist for $20.  Went to Hobby Lobby and bought some fabric on sale.  Painted the chairs black and recovered the cushions.  Result is two pretty chairs.
(Chair on left is what they originally looked like...chair on right is finished chair).

Bought a bench on Craigslist (see bench above).  Recovered is with same fabric as chairs (see bench below).  Now I have a matching bench.

Pinkalicious Party

My daughter at her 7th birthday party.

Candy Buffet

Candy Buffet

I made all the desserts.  These are the cake pops and decorated strawberry marshmallows. Yummy!

I made pink lemonade cupcakes and pinkalicious cookies!


The birthday cake was a giant cupcake I made.

This is the other giant cupcake I made.


The candy buffet and favors.


To get all the templates for the stuff I made go to http://natashavonsommer.com/References.html and scroll down and look for the post about the Pinkalicious party.  Tons of free templates.  Hershey bar printables, bubble printables, personalized invitations, favor printables and a ton more.

Just the Start

This is my first blog ever.  I was inspired to start this blog, rather I was required to write this blog, for a class I am taking.  We will see how it goes.
