Daily Life: Today’s Events!

30 May

Today I accomplished more than I have in weeks!! This getting back on track and seriously inspired is working!

I started my couponingĀ and although I don’t plan on being an extreme couponer, I do plan on stealing some sweet deals. Instead of just cutting all the coupons I am sticking to the brands I love and what we keep stocked in the house already. No need to go to the extreme and buy things we really don’t plan on using or even like!! I organized them in a little container I had bought for study cards that I was no longer using! Check it out:

Then I did a little shopping šŸ™‚

Serious embroidery possibilities šŸ˜€

Magnet canvas for my gift card project

Tracing paper for embroidery projects

Gray felt for a little elephant šŸ˜€

Zippers for my nook covers

Cute fabric for nook covers

And a sneak peak of the sailor inspired scarf!

Plus my handy-dandy notebook!

Next to come – embroidery project number one!!

Love Always,

Homemade Christmas Cards :)

9 Nov

I decided I better start these suckers now because it takes me a while to get these kinds of things done! I was inspired by a piece of art that was stippled while I was browsing around on wordpress. I haven’t stippled since freshman year of college and I probably should be doing it daily šŸ˜‰ It is such a great stress reliever and takes your mind off of EVERYTHING.

I madeĀ E’s birthday invitationsĀ almost completely from scratch and I loved doing it so I planned on making Christmas cards too. Somehow it’s more fun for me knowing that I accomplished a lot more than just buying a card and signing myĀ  name šŸ˜‰

Take in mind that this is just the beginning. It only took me about ten – fifteen minutes to get this far because stippling is kind of time consuming but the rest was a piece of cake. Trying to find some good ideas to add a little Christmas theme design on the top right and hoping to take family photo’s to paste on the back? For some reason I am obsessed with pictures haha. If you couldn’t already tell I feelĀ pictures are worth a million words.

So if I actually get these done before it’s time to send them out I might have to come up with something else to add .. like home-bakedĀ goodies!!??Ā  YUMMM.

Haha.

Love Always,

J
