i choose me

I choose me. I choose thinner. I choose my health. I choose to feel good. I choose to use restraint. I choose not to eat junk. I choose to be in control. I choose to be disciplined.  I choose to stick with this. I choose not to be a human Yo-Yo. I choose to keep my weight down. I choose me.

 

Valentine’s “Mantel”

As we don’t have a fireplace, we don’t really have a mantel.  So I created one using our server in the dining room.  Lately I’ve taken a fancy to decorating for the holidays.  I don’t do every one (no Mardi Gras, for example) but I will do most of the biggies.

1. Subway art is my favorite thing.  It’s easy and I keep subway art for each holiday right in the frame and just switch them out.

2. Holiday candy is fun and easy.  I just display in clear jars.

3. Instead of buying things, I just walk around and pull out things that fit the color scheme.

4. Banners; there are lots of free printable banners I make out of paper and ribbon.

Happy holidays!  All of them :)

Nature plus bling = Silver Glittery Pine Cones

Before I put away the Christmas pine cones from last year, I decided to paint and add glitter to a few.  I painted them with silver spray paint.  After they were dry, I glued silver glitter on.  I think they came out pretty good!
