Cut up, Workout Shirt: DIY



 Two weeks ago  I had to make a huge shift in my everyday life to save my sanity and help me get though the very difficult time of losing my 101 and 1/2 year old Grandmother Polly.   I knew that if I did not  make a change in my Physical Activity that I would end up losing my mind. I was having serious pains in my chest and it felt like a vice was squeezing my ribs. The last straw was when I  woke up from a dead sleep not being able to breath and being scared to death.  I was able to calm  myself down and eventuality fall back to sleep.  That morning I put on some walking shoes, grabbed  my music and started to walk at least 45 minutes everyday.  This small act of movement has saved me. The pains in my chest disappeared the tightness around my ribs is gone and I have wonderful conversations with my Grandmother. I miss her so much but walking allows my mind to be quiet which makes me hear my Grandmother better and somehow that calms me.  This is not just something  I am going to do for a month or so this is one of my many  lifestyle changes.

I really want to thank all of you for your on pouring love and support over the loss of my Grandmother. Your kind words and love have helped me so much.  She meant the world to me and this is the first real significant loss that I have had to work through. I just have to remember this is  a process and if anyone is going though the same thing I am here if you need to just talk it through. What a beautiful World we live in. I feel very lucky and very Grateful.Thank you All.

The T shirts I am attracted to cost 30$- 40$ (I have bought two.) Because physical activity  is  something I will be doing for a very long time, I better start creating my own, less expensive versions of the shirts I want.   Making your own workout shirt is not only easy but  it is also a great way to save  your hard earned $$$$$$$.
  How easy you ask?  Well let me show you.

Butterfly Tee: DIY





 I saw this cute  shirt on Pinterest and I really thought it would be easy to recreate.
What a perfect shirt for a summer trip to the beach.
I named this a Butterfly Tee because that was the first thought 
that went through my head when I saw it.
No Sew, Tee shirt DIY, my favorite as always.

Glitter Heels; DIY





These Glitter heels are so easy to create. Not only does it take very little time, it is something you can do to spice up an old pair of shoes you are tired with. I did a re-style about 4 years ago with a pair of heels I thought were ruined using this same technique. 
They turned from trash to treasure with just a little glue and glitter.
 Click HERE    to see that DIY
I am loving the new chunky heel trend.  Comfy and cute. 
 I thought, why not spice up just a plain pair doing the same thing? 
I am currently working on a pair of black ones using some crystals and glitter. 

That DIY is coming soon.

Cut Out, Ladder Shirt; DIY




 Inspiration:
Noun   1. An inspiring or animating action or influence:  2. Something inspired, as an idea:  
 3. A result of inspired activity.
 
Motivation and inspiration comes from all kinds of places. I quite often grab my inspiration from someone walking down the street or a window I walk past.  Sometimes my inspiration comes from a conversation or a view out the window when I am  driving. This particular shirt was something I saw on, Pinterest. Pinterest is a place I often go to when I am feeling uninspired,  and it never fails to spark my inspiration.
What Inspires You?

Felting Heart Tee: DIY




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 #1 Make a new space just for me to create and film Videos in. 
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.
Goal #8 Felting
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.

Pink Flag Garland: DIY


 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.

Cutout; Love T-Shirt DIY



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.
