Duck Mosaic Craft

You may or may not have noticed that I didn’t post anything for Father’s Day. Which doesn’t mean I forgot the holiday, it just means I was er… running a little behind. I actually did spend the day before Father’s Day with my dad. It was the day I went to the fair and won […]

MAKE YOUR OWN DIY TUTU

As promised in my post on the Neon Run. I wanted to give a quick tutorial on how to make your own running tutu (or a tutu for any use, really). Once you have all your materials together, it’s really quite simple. You’re going to want to get some “no-fold” elastic from your local sewing […]

VALENTINE’S DAY VIGNETTE

I got a new narrow bookcase so I can now have a nice holiday display in the entranceway of our apartment. I went a little overboard with my Valentine’s Day craft ideas, but I couldn’t help it, I just had so much inspiration! Come look at my Valentine’s Day vignette. I got the vases at […]

DIY MARDI GRAS CENTERPIECE

I don’t usually celebrate Mardi Gras, but I love the colors so much. Purple, of course, green and gold – you can’t beat that color combination! So I decided to make a cool Mardi Gras centerpiece out of masks and wine bottles. If you’re ever interested in making some crafts with wine bottles, here’s my […]

SILVERWARE KITCHEN WREATH CRAFT

Now, as I’ve said before, I love wreaths. But this wreath definitely isn’t your run of the mill wreath for the front door. No, no. This is not one of your momma’s door wreaths. This is a hardcore kitchen wreath. I wanted something to put up in our kitchen, and what better thing to make […]

WEIGHT LOSS WEDNESDAYS: EATING PLAN

Hi my name is Sarah, and I am fat. You may remember these words from my very first Weight Loss Wednesday post. Well, my name is still Sarah, and I am still fat. Yep, crazy how the weight doesn’t just melt away all by itself, right? As I mentioned last week, you may have noticed […]

WEIGHT LOSS WEDNESDAYS: A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS

We will all be taking part in Weight Loss Wednesdays by blogging and supporting each other in making healthy changes. By joining this group I feel more accountable in living a healthy lifestyle and making better food/exercise choices.

WEIGHT LOSS WEDNESDAYS: VITAMINS AND LOSING WEIGHT

Do you take vitamins? If you’re on a very low calorie diet, it’s possible that you should be. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, “You might not be getting enough nutrients if you’re severely restricting calories.” And you  may “want to take a multivitamin to supplement across the board.” I don’t take vitamins […]

DIY RAG RUG FROM OLD JEANS AND T-SHIRTS

Happy Earth Day! I hope you are doing your part to promote a clean environment. It doesn’t matter if you live in a big city, a small suburb, or somewhere in between – every little bit helps! As part of my commitment to the modern environmental movement of Earth Day I started in my very […]

GOOGLE READER ALTERNATIVES

The Old Reader was experiencing a surge in traffic 7x what it was used to, and there were more than 14,000 users in the import queue ahead of me. So, needless to say, it was a very slow process and it took 6 days for my feeds to get imported. But I definitely think it […]
