Have A SAFE & Enjoyable New Year’s Eve!
Categories: Fun Time

New Year’s eve can be a lot of fun. A brand new 2016 is a Big Deal. But let’s remember that even if you are careful about drinking and driving there are many idiots out there who are not. In fact, somebody almost ran into me today and it was noon. Of course, that doesn’t […]

Merry Christmas 2015
Categories: Fun Time

It may be pouring rain here in Atlanta, but it’s still a joyous time of year. My house is filled with company, the turkey is roasting in the oven and all the presents are unwrapped. We’re having a wonderful time and we hope the same is true for you and yours.  God bless.

My Favorite Funny Quote (So Far)
Categories: Funny Quotes

We’re just starting to create printable and downloadable funny quotes here at Pronoia Designs and this is my favorite one so far. Isn’t this annoyed owl simply priceless? He really does look peeved.

I recently watched a fascinating demonstration using, of all things, gumballs. […]

Happy Halloween 2015!
Categories: Fun Time

Halloween is one of my favorite days of the year! At this moment, as I sit by my computer, I have a pumpkin spice scented candle burning and a GIANT ceramic pumpkin lit and sitting on my desk, grinning goulishly at me. Centuries ago, early Europeans believed that on ‘All Hallows Eve’ the boundary between the physical and […]

Choosing The Best Sewing Machine
Categories: Fun Time

In years past, I made all my own clothes on my trusty Singer sewing machine. All the women in my family sewed – beautifully. In fact, one of my grandmothers made her living sewing for the rich society women in Houston, Texas. She actually employed several women who did the basic, nitty gritty stuff while […]

According to the calendar it isn’t autumn – yet. But for most of us, Labor Day is the emotional beginning of autumn, just as Memorial Day is the emotional beginning of summer. I, for one, am thrilled! I love the bright orange, red and gold colors and the crisp weather. It can’t come too soon!
