At some point, we can all use a little more inspiration in our lives – a little happier, a little more zen. As crafters, we have a unique opportunity to use our creativity and craftiness to add those necessary elements to our environment and give them to others. If you need a little inspiration for your inspirational craft project, here’s some of our favorites.
Emily and I were brought up in a traditional family of the “early years”. Dad was gone all day working and mom was home all day keeping the house in order. She always made amazing meals for our family of 6 and we ate like kings and queens! When I got older, I liked the idea of cooking but it wasn’t always that way. So I can relate to anyone reading this post that hates to cook but needs to anyway… Whether you’re not comfortable in the kitchen or simply don’t have a lot of time to spend on meal planning and preparation, having a few simple steps to follow can help make weekly meal planning and preparation easier.

Two months until Christmas! Oh, my!! Each year, like most of you, I commit to be “ready” with homemade gifts, fun wrapping ideas, cute decorations…. And yet I find myself scrambling the second week of December. Sometimes I think that’s what the holiday is about — scrambling, doing more than we humanly should, losing sleep, stuffing ourselves on the day, and determining to do “better” next year. This year (famous last words) will be different. The only thing I want scrambling is my omelet!
So here’s my plan and hopefully you find something here for yourself: [Read more…]
Crockpot Meatloaf smells delicious as it cooks all day! This is one of the easiest freezer crockpot meals to make as you don’t need to brown the burger first. My daughter had never had meatloaf until this and now it’s a requested meal. I’m happy to oblige since it’s got wholesome ingredients and is easy to make!
Have you tried juicing yet? It’s a tasty, easy way to get the nutrition you need without having to come up with a week’s worth of meals. Whether you’re new to juicing or have been doing it for a while, the Magic Bullet Pro 900 is a necessary appliance for your kitchen. Emily and I got together last month and one of our purchases was the Magic Bullet. We were both so excited and even more so when our significant others agreed to jump on board having a shake a day with us! Bill and I have even graduated to having 2 a day and have noticed an increase in our energy and a decrease in our bellies. We couldn’t be happier with it! Here’s our Magic Bullet Pro 900 Review if you have been on the fence about it.
It may still be autumn, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your goals and plans for next year. If you’re anything like me, you’re really good at setting those goals and not so great on figuring out how to achieve them or follow through on the steps you need to take. I’m so excited to get a jumpstart! And I think it would be cool to meet up with some of our fellow sisters!
The best thing is that WE HAVE CONNECTIONS! Read on to learn how you can get a free coaching session just by mentioning SKB ($65 value!)!
It’s the season for comfort foods. Fall is in the air, gardens are winding down, and our peppers are plentiful. We have a couple different stuffed pepper recipes for you to try. One of them is featured in our crockpot freezer meal series and uses cauliflower instead of rice. And the other is below.
This stuffed pepper recipe stands out because of it’s use of lentils. Lentils are known for being high in fiber and protein. These nutrition packed stuffed peppers are also delicious.
I’m a lucky person – very lucky. I have two great-nieces that WANT to spend time with me! I live over three hours from them, but we still make it work for them to visit during their school vacation in the summer. (Did I mention one of them gets car sick??) Brooke and Kenzie enjoy sewing. I LOVE to sew! I thought it would be a great idea to make simple pajamas when they were here, but we also wanted to swim, hike, go on the boat, have campfires, make s’mores, play games, read books, do some baking. You know. All that “girl time” stuff. And we had THREE days to do it all. Guess what? We did do it ALL!! One of our favorite things was the sewing project for children.
Fall DIY projects are some of my favorite to round up! I love this time of year. Not sure if it’s the changing leaves or the crisp air that invigorates, but I LOVE this time of year. How about you? Do you like Fall? If yes, you will love these cute and easy fall DIY projects for indoors and out. [Read more…]
