Hey everyone, I hope you all are having a wonderful Valentine's Day week. I have been working on a few things, like putting a few finishing touches in office and trying to record a few makeup videos for those ladies 45 plus like me. Let me just say recording a video with your face in the center of it is really intimidating and challenging. I am going to power through and finish it because it is a challenge I have made myself. I am also working on dropping the last ten pounds that has been so hard for me to do over the last year with the help of Skinny Shake.
It is a new year with all kinds of new possibilities. I am going to really stretch my self and do things that challenge me and push me to be a better me. What is your goal this year? Do you have any?
I never make New Years Resolutions because I never keep them. I am approaching it completely different this year, I am making small goals and so far it has been working
Goal #2 Lose the last Ten (Working on)
Goal #3 De Clutter ( the biggest challenge)
Goal #4 More DIY's
Goal #5 Blogging Full time.
Goal #6 Learn Something weekly that will challenge me.
Goal #7 Write everyday 3 things I am thankful for. Go back an re- read before bed.
I am sure as the year goes on I will be adding to this, but for now this is it.
Valentine's Day can either be the best or the worst Holiday.
Spend that time loving yourself. Pamper yourself with a facial or a massage. Grab your best friend, Mom, or cousin that is single and go see a movie. Pop some corn and watch that movie only you like at home. Make something. Cook your favorite meal and invite all your single Girlfriends over.
I have to confess Valentine's Day has never really been my favorite Holiday for reasons of the past.
But I love the Idea of Valentine's Day. Pink Hearts, a wild romantic night, A beautiful dinner with someone. We make it what we want.
Just Loving one another is what Valentine's day and everyday should be.
Felting is a project that I have been wanting to do for a long time.
I finally found all of the materials to do this shirt at Hobby Lobby.
It really is easy and not very expensive. I have used a regular t-shirt for this project but it really works well on sweaters. Be creative and make your own design. I thought pink hearts would be great for this Valentine's day. Click read more to see how you can create a cute shirt by felting.

Hey everyone I just finished my Studio / Office and I could not be more thrilled. This is a new space just for me to create and to do more videos in and I am loving it so much all ready. Sometimes I just go in there to sit and think and I just can't believe how very lucky I am. I am also experimenting on a few makeup videos, something that came out of always searching the internet for Makeup videos that is focused on the over Forty team.
Something else that is happening this week is I just started the Skinny Shake Challenge ( Info on all of that at Skinnyco.com. Great tasting and it gave me such an energy boost today. Something I really needed. But I will post more about that later. Feel free to follow me on Instagram, Snapchat or my Facebook page if you would like to see the daily shake I create and also to see if it helps me shave off a few pounds.
Now back to the DIY. This DIY was created because I am always looking to make fun things for Valentine's day and I thought that I could create this cute little pink flag garland for my new room just pink enough to pass for a Valentine's day decoration but something I could I could use past that holiday. This project is really easy and it only took me about an hour from start to finish. So if you are looking for a fun, quick project, this is it.
I can not wait to post the room makeover so all of you can see my new pink room
Have a Fantastic Weekend.
Lots of Love.

Making a t-shirt that expresses me or my feelings of the day is highly satisfying. I have always been fascinated with creating that one shirt that expresses me in that very moment. The sayings I want to use are always changing from feelings of joy and happiness, how I despise running, to loving Coffee so much I could marry it. I scroll Pintrest all the time for clever, thought provoking T-Shirts that describe me the best. Truth be told I could put about 5 sayings on the front and 5 on the back of my shirt to describe the roller coaster my emotions take on any given day.
This shirt sums me up in one word. " LOVE" It's how I feel about 99.9% of everything. Those close to me can verify that fact. I pretty much love and get excited about everything. The very best thing about this project is that you can replace the word Love with any word you want. "Be Mine "or
"Taken" or even "LOVED". The possibilities are endless. Have Fun with this one.
I would LOVE to see any new shirts you guys come up with and would LOVE to share them.
A little update on my Studio/Office. The furniture has been ordered and the video lights are on there way, so I am one step closer to my dream. I have promised myself to work on at least one thing in my room everyday and I have been keeping my promise. Today I will be cleaning everything out and putting the rug down. I cant wait to show you. Follow me on Snap Chat for a daily update.
Have a Beautiful day.

You all may be wondering if I fell off the face of the Earth. If you follow me on Snap Chat or any of my other media channels you would know I still live.
Where have I been ?
No one ever really knows how one will react in a stressful, difficult time in their life. I tend to stop doing the very thing that I love the most, the very thing that makes me feel the very best possible way that I could ever feel about myself. I retreat into the safety of my quietness. I stop doing anything artistic and save every bit of energy to deal with an emotion in which I am unfamiliar. Is this the right reaction? Most likely not, but it is my reaction. I am a very lucky girl to have amazing family and extraordinary friends to rely on. I know each of you have had to weather a very difficult storm at one time or another, maybe even two or three. What I have experienced about these difficult moments in my life is that I learn more about the inner part of me and how strong I am. Another thing about me is that no one will ever know that I am going though something so unbearable, not unless you are in my closest circle. I like it that way. I really do not like too much outside influence on how I should be dealing with a very private, emotional, situation, oh and let me tell you everyone has a strong opinion on what you should do and how you should deal with it.
Sometimes when tragedy hits it takes your body months to react because you are running strictly on adrenaline. Survival mode. We have all been there. Then one day you wake up and all of your adrenaline is gone, the walls come crashing down on top of you and your holding them up with nothing left. The very core of you is tested. Can I hold it up? Will I die? Am I strong enough? The answer is always YES! I am strong enough!. Yes! I can hold it up! No! I will not Die.!
I have only had three significant times in my life where I have had to really dig deep. I don't know about you but I always see things so clearly after the pain. I really can't share with you the details of what I am talking about. I will let you come to your own conclusion. I will say that pain is pain no matter where is comes from.
If any of you are dealing with a difficult time in your life, you know that your life is forever changed but this could be a new beginning, a chance to look inside and see what you are really made of. A chance to change. A chance to make yourself the very best you. Sometimes all you can do is sit and watch the tragedy unfold. That helpless feeling is almost unbearable. That feeling is the worst part, especially for me because I love to control things. As I sit and write this I see the lesson in all of it is learning to let go. Letting it all go to regain all you lost. We cannot control anyone but ourselves so why not concentrate on the things that deal with just ourselves. Learning to let go and trust. What a concept.
This is the first Post I have done in about two months. It feels really good to be back doing what I love. I am also working on my new Studio/ Office. A place where I can rev up my You Tube Channel with more weekly DIY videos. The beginning of WobiSobi Inc.
I Hope I was not too much of a Debbie Downer. My road to emotional recovery is set into place. I am doing wonderful, and taking each day one day at a time. Trying not to focus to much on the future but to make everyday the very best day that I can.
Just a quick reminder.
Treat each person you see with kindness you never know what kind of struggle they are going through on the inside.
I hope you enjoy this DIY I saw it on Pintrest, of course.
Of course I thought what a great DIY.
Thank you all so much for your endless support and encouragement.
It means the world to me.

I was just browsing through some of my older DIY's
and thought that this might be a great Re-post for a cute New Year's DIY.
This was an off the shoulder T-shirt that I dressed up by using some Red Velvet Ribbon.
I think Black velvet would be pretty too.
If you are wondering why I have been so DIY silent over the last couple of months it is
because I have been taking a little break from my blog due to some family issues.
I am really hoping to get back to regular DIY blogging in January.
I hope all of you are well,
and my wish for 2017 is that you all have a
Happy and Wonderful New Year.

Do you ever just see an Item of clothing someone is wearing and want it, then can't find it anywhere? This is my life. Half of the things I see online I cant find, so I create them.
It's A wonderful thing because creating is what I love to do.
December is a super busy Month for me because I am in Retail. Do I love Retail? No not really. I would rather spend my day Creating new DIY's and doing videos, but for now this is what I have to do.
I am, however, super THANKFUL and do it with a smile because I have a great team and I LOVE the people I work with so much. Super blessed!
This Sweatshirt was created because of a picture I saw of Jessica Simpson. She was wearing a similar sweatshirt and it looked so cute and comfy that I wanted one. I immediately began to search the internet for one and I could not find one even remotely close to it, so this DIY was created.

Have you ever looked for something that you have envisioned in your mind and come up with nothing? I have been looking everywhere for some leather chokers that fit my style and personality and after about 3 days of searching and finding nothing I decided to create my own choker.
These are exactly what I had pictured in my mind.
I have gotten so many comments about these chokers that I decided to create a tutorial so you can create your very own dainty leather choker yourself.
