spring spring spring

Hello darlings, dears and sugar bears. I don't know about you but I am ready for warmer weather. Last week was quite beautiful, but yesterday and today was all rain. Plus today we had SNOW! I'm hoping things will warm back up because Ashlee is doing a photo shoot this week for a final project. I'm super excited to help her out.

Enjoy these lovely pictures. I'm off to heat up some hot punch which will hopefully soothe my sore throat. I hate being sick! :(

Chelsea the Handler

From Harper's Bazaar April 2010

Late-night star Chelsea Handler doesn't suffer fools, but when it comes to Hollywood "brat" Abigail Breslin, she's in for more than she can handle. Bazaar's take on the Hollywood "handler."

I have added lots of new product to my etsy shop! Below are two of my new items! I named all the headbands and hair bows after women, friends, children who are important to me.

exciting things!

Today started out slow and weird, but it has turned into such a wonderful day! First of all FUG MADNESS started on gofugyourself!

Then Ashlee convinced me to go buy running shoes with her. Neither of us are "runners," far from it in fact. Jenny sent Ashlee a link to THIS cool website, so we decided to give it a try.

On the way home from the mall I got a DM from Aimee saying that she featured the headband Ashlee and I made her on her blog. This is my first feature of any kind! I think it is just so sweet of her! It totally made my day!

Plus, a couple days ago I finished my design for art collaboration Promise has put together. It took me so long to figure out what I wanted to do, but once I started the process went quickly. The idea behind the design is that the earthquake was so devasting and caused such chaos and damage, but through help, love, support and prayer there can be new life and growth in Haiti. I have never been a part of anything like this before and I am proud of how my design turned out.

Honestly I believe that creating this design was a test of faith. The whole time I was working on it the devil was sitting on my shoulder discouraging me, causing me to doubt myself and compare myself to others. Instead of letting him get the best of me I claimed God's promises! God has created me! God. Who created the heavens and the earth. He created me! To doubt my gifts and abilities is a slap in God's face. I may not be an "expert" or a "professional" but God has blessed me with creativity. So here it is!

blueberry beauty

I used to HATE blueberries. Absolutely HATE them. I blame it on a bad experience with a blueberry poptart in kindergarten. In the past couple years I have humbly changed my ways. Below are some wonderful blueberry things that I adore.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie

1 cup fat-free milk
1 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium bananas, halved
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries
Combine all ingredients in a blender and process for 30 seconds or until blended. Pour into chilled glasses.
Note: I like to add a container of blueberry yogurt for extra creaminess.

My Blueberry Nights

Blue Machine Naked Juice

Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Blueberries

XXX Vitamin Water- (acai/blueberry/pomegranate)

Minute Maid Blueberry Pomegranate Juice
