Sun Art For Budding Photogs

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!  CHRISTMAS IS COMING! You know, just in case you didn’t know. Photography has always been a topic of discussion in my family.  Either, I was teaching myself to shoot on an old-fashioned, non-digital, film-using SLR, or Boy was honing his talents with a fancy-schmancy digital, after igniting his affections with a pin-hole […]

You’re Looking For Unique, For Different, Right?

Unique stocking stuffers for gals are easy-peasy. For the boys?  It’s a little harder to find stuff they’ll actually use or be happy to receive. Let Mrs. Tucker help you out of that headlock, baby. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping through the Amazon links on this […]

Greeting Card Photo Phun

Nope.  Not drunk.  OMT still knows how to spell.  F-u-n.  Happy? Years ago, in the days before digital, I taught myself how to use a camera.  All these years lata, I’m still having phun with photos. Witness: I took this at a friend’s ranch. Don’t be fooled by those gorgeous eyes, this ostrich would have […]

Big Wheel Keeps On Rolling

When we were kids, my baby brother, who came 10-years behind me, had a Big Wheel.  It was a much coveted possession and one that almost every kid in the neighborhood took a turn on, no matter how old we were. When Boy was old enough for one, he had a Big Wheel and once […]

Candy Bar Cake Challenge

Y’all remember the Candy Bar Cake Challenge? You saw my hideous concoction… …then I challenged you to send me your not so hideous creation. Two brave readers have accepted my throw-down and submitted their pics. While no one has dared to make the cake in it’s three-layer glory, you guys did make some tasty lookin’ […]

Tiny Pool

A handful of years back I bought and inflated a small pool, or Tiny Pool to folks who knew me (now that’s you!). Our backyard is on the small side; we no havey room for a pool and a big dog.  We chose to have the dog. Then one day, I came across this beautiful […]

Books, Books, Books!

It’s officially summer and the perfect time for kiddos to read more books, especially since there’s more time to enjoy what they love.  Even better?  You get to enjoy these books as much as they do. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links.

Vanilla Cupcakes With Strawberry Lemonade Frosting

The star here isn’t the cupcakes, but the Strawberry Lemonade Frosting. It met and then decided to exceed my, and all who experienced it, expectations. Witness its strawberry lemonade glory: Take any vanilla cupcake recipe and then get ready to super-charge those badboys. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do […]

Book or iPad?

Do kids prefer the interactives that an iPad offers or can a book still capture their imaginations? I think there’s enough room for both. Everyone knows the classic Goodnight Moon, but have you read Goodnight iPad? ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping through the Amazon links on […]

I Mustache You: Is That Robot Wearing a Crown?

Kiddie stuff is fun.  Way more fun than it used to be. My hunt for a normal, ho-hum, regular cupcake pan led me to three products that could lend themselves to grand birthday parties or just a fun afternoon with Ginny (?), G-Ma (?!), Meemaw (NO!). ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links.
