change, but be yourself now

Sometimes I just desire CHANGE. I just want to do something drastic in my life. This happens every couple of months or so. But right now I'm in this phase. I just need some sort of major CHANGE. Usually instead of doing something bold like dye my hair purple, I just rearrange my furniture, torture myself with modern sofas or handmade clothing online or go through my clothes and STUFF I have and get rid of a bunch of it. I want to be a minimalist.

HELP!

check this out

So I'm a little bit obsessed with the website: Mylifelist.org. Check out my profile HERE. This is where I go an update all the things I have done (ok - i only posted 2 so far) and edit what my goals are. There are quite a few things on there that I will be hopefully completing within the next 6 months to a year. It's nice to have a cute website to have it all mapped out in a way that can really get you motivated! Mostly there are things I want to do, I just forget about them, but if I put them on there - I have no excuse!!

i love you weekend.

Weekend! We'll it's almost over, but it's been really great. Troy and I were able to spend some quality time together, it was great. I think we may be going for a walk soon. I just had a shower since I felt disgusting being at the cabin and all. I don't need to look at top diet pills or anything, I'm just trying my best to be healthy. I have been doing really well when it comes to going to Ufit! I just need to do more on my own. I've been ok doing yoga at home too!!!

homemade granola bars


I enjoy baking, most of the time. But there are certain things that I enjoy making most. I really enjoy making homemade granola bars. I got my general recipe from all recipes.com - search "easy granola bars". It's basically 3 cups of quick oats and 3 cups of whatever you want. I like putting almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chocolate chips and dried cranberries in mine. I just adjust and add enough to make the 3 cups. Once can of sweetened condensed milk, put it all together in pan and bake for 15ish minutes on 375 degrees! and wa-la! Finished. I like them because you actually know what is in them. Who knows what they put in the one you buy in the stores. Sugar, that's for sure! Try it out!

Coffee Sack Cushions


I can't believe I didn't post about this yet! I've been working a lot lately with coffee sacks that I picked up at a local roaster (for free!) And i've been dabbling in some exciting projects of making things out of them! This is my first real project. I made some coffee sack pillows! They were really fun to make, once I got the hang of it with the burlap and my sewing machine! They are super cute as a decorative pillow as well! I have some for sale at The Village Emporium in Chester so go and check them out! I'll give you the heads up that i'll probably do a sale there in June as well! Keep your eyes peeled for more excitement to come. I have a couple there and will keep adding as they sell so more print/designs that are unique are to come!
