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.
Things you need
- Cut the collar off
- Find the center of the shirt.
- Place the felting sponge in the middle of the shirt.
- Unwind the roving
- Carefully and lightly pull some of the roving from the end, working with about 2 to 3 inches at a time.
- Shape the wool into a heart shape
- Using the pin carefully punch up and down.
- Add wool as needed in small sections.
- Make as many hearts as you desire.
- I made 3 which is my favorite number.
Have a Great Day!
