I can’t say I’ve ever left Color Me Mine with a project I didn’t like. It’s fun walking through the house and seeing the knick-knacks I’ve created from our trips to paint at Color Me Mine…  My ring holder, my elephant piggy bank….. Today’s throwback is a post I wrote 2 years ago after a Mommy and Son trip to Color Me Mine…will need to get back soon to make a new creation! This post is featuring my “splotch” mug. It was fun just to play with the different colors and just do whatever, no rhyme or reason to this…

Today was a busy busy day, I apologize for the late night post…today was a day of catch up and surprisingly I still have energy left…this is what happens when you do things you love!!! Today is #motivationmonday – I love days like this! Motivation and Inspiration are key factors to keeping us going. I have several motivators – success, praise, accomplishment, the desire to help and inspire people, set an example for my son that dreams can come true, the desire to live life and be happy…there are just so many reasons to live life and work towards your…

With warmer weather on the way and Spring Cleaning on our to-do list, I thought an easy, quick #DIY crafting post would be a good fit for this week’s #tbt post. This project was about a 30 minute task. A cute addition to the kitchen for the upcoming season! Collect your supplies: I found burlap boards at Walmart on clearance – Score! – I also picked up a some pretty and funky floral fabric, some ribbon, a pretty papermache butterfly, some pretty pink flowers at AC Moore’s, and some funky paperclips at the Dollar Tree. I cut a heart out…

We are raised that there is either wild or there is civilized. We always have to make an ultimate choice. Why can’t we be a healthy mix of both? Why can’t we be wild & free and stable & strong all at the same time? I like to think of myself as a free spirit, a free thinker but I need an organized world to dance in. I enjoy spontaneity but I also find I thrive in routine. I need a balance of both in my life. I need the space to run when I feel the need to be…

I know I say it all of the time but it’s true, life is a journey, a string of lessons, a never-ending growth process…Here’s my list of self lessons (I love lists!) #listchallenges I cannot let my blood sugar drop too low or I become ultra cranky…I am that Snickers commercial in real life ; ) I need a little structure and routine in my life to stay organized and feel level. I need some alone time at least once every week, every two weeks stretching it, to recharge or I burn out. I’m connected to the weather. I’m always…

The past is the past. The future is the future. But I am here now. My greatest lesson I have learned (and am still learning to master the practice of it) is to be in the present, to live, to feel, and to embrace the present. We spend so much of our time and our energy thinking about the what if’s and the what will be’s that we miss so much of what is happening right in front of us or to us at that very moment. There is a quote that I recite when I find myself falling down…

I want to set an example, how to fully live life, not be confined to one said structure, not confined to a box. To show everyone that the trials, the challenges, the mistakes I’ve made, the heartbreaks I’ve endured have led me, created me, into this perfect state, the perfect place to flourish as I dream to, to build the empire I envision. That it’s given me the strength, the wisdom, and the ability to manifest, to procure, to conquer everything I want to be mine. Because dreams do come true. Because I do believe in magic. I believe that…

Here’s another throw back post from my previous Foodie blog…Enjoy! Today we start the day with Homemade Pancakes and sausage links (I cheated a little on those- just had to cook them) – yum! I had my kitchen assistant in tow too! This is a batter I’ve made several times before – for about two years probably now but it’s so simple to make and typically I have all the ingredients on hand that I had to share! It’s less expensive than buying the pre-made mix and almost just as easy to make than the mix up pancake batters. Homemade…

I announced that I would be closing my other two blogs and moving my focus to www.dofivethingsaday.com earlier this week…with that I wanted to reminisce a little and share some of my old posts from my other blogs – revisit how I’ve come along since then… this post is from 2 years ago…aren’t my kitties adorable <3 … here’s my cat poem… Some days I just want to be a cat…attitude is always acceptable…cat naps are always scheduled into the day…toys are scattered around the house…easily entertained…being pet and snuggled is a daily routine…food and water presented…and someone always coming…
