Self-care is definitely not as easy as it seems... i’ve been ignoring it for far too long and it’s starting to wear me out. So i’m on a mission to spend more time on self-care. I’ve been trying to eat more regularly. I eat very healthy foods, don’t eat crap,... Continue reading

A beautiful bed & breakfast in Cape Breton (I believe...?) Correct me if i’m wrong, Stacey! Happy Sunday! I decided to take the weekend away from social media so I could get some things accomplished on my “to do” list and not have to constantly check in to see who... Continue reading

There’s pretty much nothing better than kitschy thrillers... Godzilla, Jurrasic Park, King Kong, etc... this looks right up there & I can’t honestly wait to see it! LOL!! I’m headed to UWO (University of Western Ontario) this afternoon for a tour by child #2, then we’re off to do some... Continue reading

Kids. Kids are budget busters. Each & every single time. LOL!! Mya outgrew her new Skechers that we bought for her in the spring and naturally we still have 2 more months (or so) of “shoe weather”, *sigh*. Which meant that I had to find another pair of shoes for... Continue reading

Good Morning! It’s time for “Five Things Friday!” 1. BUDGETS: I’ve started with a new budget, although i’m still pulling numbers from the air because Dh still doesn’t have his accurate pay rate or anything yet... but hey, it’s only going onto the 4th week, so it’s not like we... Continue reading

First of all, I want to say a great BIG thank-you to everyone who left such kind comments on my post yesterday... Obviously I’m feeling burnt out and I am going to take steps to get things in order & slowly lighten my load. I think that my plan to... Continue reading

Accurate photo of me by the day’s end... So, i’ve come up with what would be the *perfect* sewing routine for me - I think. It would consist of: 3 days of custom work. 3 days of RTS (ready to ship, personal projects, shop sewing, etc...) 1 day OFF to... Continue reading

I tend to choose one main fabric, then find fabrics to “compliment” the main fabric in different scales, styles, colours etc... you won’t see me using all of one “style” of fabric, unless it’s customer requested. I like to have large prints, medium prints and small prints. Same as colour, light to dark. Does this help at all?
Yes, I think this is *exactly* what I need to do... routine and turning off my devices. I don’t think I can give up my coffee though, but definitely none after dinner, which i’m guilty of sometimes!
We’ve had them, they’re not the best quality unfortunately. Generally I really like Marks, not for socks though.
Warm milk would land me in the ER, so that def wouldn’t help.. lol! I just have too many things running through my mind, I think I need to perhaps start reading before bed and no technology!
Ugh! I’m not loving the process of even getting it empty!! Such a pain!
“Financial Armaggedon Years” ... Hahahaha!! At least i’ve been warned, but i’m with you 100%, I think it’ll be worth every struggle to help keep the debt away! And yes, a part time job will be happening at the same time! :)
It’s good to start early, they’ll catch on sooner or later! *wink*

I’m exhausted today... it’s 3:17pm in the afternoon and i’m definitely dragging. I think it’s time to re-caffeinate myself honestly. Last night I photographed my cousins wedding. It was a very small & intimate wedding, but at the same time, very fun and relaxed. Overall, I really enjoyed myself. Except... Continue reading

I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that Mya had decided to sell off her Nintendo DS & games... (I still haven’t listed her DS for her and we need to remember where we put the charger) anyway, moot point. She did sell a few of her games and... Continue reading

Ok... i’m totally just kidding. Sort of. Not really. Things still haven’t been figured out with Dh’s new FT hours/job, so i’m simply going to wing it for now. A few things will affect our budget for the next while... We’ve decided to forgo any OSAP loans for UWO (University... Continue reading

I’m exhausted. I usually get a half decent amount of sleep maybe 1-2 nights a week, but the rest are laughable. Last night I didn’t make it to bed until 1:00am, and my eyes popped open at 4:10am. A whopping 3 hours of sleep... so my “decent nights”, don’t really... Continue reading

Last night I decided that today, in 41c degree weather would be a good day to get out for a while and do some running around... lol! I figured if I knocked a custom order off of my list before we left i’d be ok for the day! So that’s... Continue reading

Happy Monday! Lately i’ve been trying to simplify my life & give myself time. I *never* have enough time, so i’m on a mission to make time that I can use to focus on my family and personal projects. It’s not easy, and it’s an ongoing task to be certain.... Continue reading

Good Morning! I set my alarm so I could be up bright & early today - not that I really wanted to, but if not, I won’t accomplish what I need to today! So, 7:00 am wake up time it was! Here’s my to do list for the day: Laundry... Continue reading
