Quincy Hands (O, Dear!)
Congrats to the winners! I will contact you all about your prize!
On another note, here are some canvasses I am working on...
I used the pages of an old hymnal. I am considering painting words/phrases on the canvas that correspond with the hymn used on that particular canvas. The pink canvas would say "Love", and the green one would say "This is my Father's world".
This is a new Sugar Scrub scent! $7
These are some stationary sets I made. $5 for a set of 6 w/o envelopes.

Winter Candle Jar...
Friday, March 23, 2012
It rained for a while today, so we stayed inside. Don't worry, rain does NOT deter this trio! We had a dance party, watched Happy Feet (well, as much as Sully's attention span could handle), played trucks, drew a picture, built forts, and the list goes on!
The highlight of Sully's day was probably that he got some mail. Truly, it was like Christmas at our house today! First a box from my grandma with clothes for Sully. He quickly found the shirt with a "choo choo" and has worn it all day. He also enjoyed the box after I cut it so it made a garage for his trucks. Then, we got a box from Chris' mom with toys galore for the boys! Sully is in truck heaven!
Then, on to exercising. I am not a fan of working out, but exercising with my little man is a blast!!! Today, while I was doing my plank, Sully crawled under me and said, "fort!?" Well sure, little man, I'd love to be your fort! Then, while I was doing sit-ups, he laid next to me and put HIS feet under the couch too. He didn't quite get it, so he just counted with me. What a teachable moment! Love, love, LOVE!!!
On a crafty note, I got to work on some Osito things today. Osito is my little business on the side. I make lots of things for babies, some beauty products, and I even dabble in some home decor. Up to this point, most of my things have been custom orders. However, I am attempting to branch out! I am meeting next week with the Lexington Rescue Mission about putting my items in their new Bazaar. LRM is an awesome organization in Lexington, and I would be so proud to have my Osito products sold in their "store". The best part is that 40% of sales go to the ministries of LRM! I'll keep you posted on the developments there as they come. For the meeting, I was asked to bring some examples of the products that I would like to sell at the Bazaar. Here are some things I made today that I plan to bring with me:

15 second plank
10 sit ups
4 push ups
That shouldn't be too hard right? Along with a walk with the kiddos (that's 2 in a strolled and one strapped to my chest) and that should count for something right? I guess I'll see tomorrow bc tomorrow starts my plan to lose this baby weight!
It wasn't so hard after Sully. I only gained 12 lbs with him and I lost it +10lbs fairly quickly. Within 7 months I was rockin skinny jeans! Then...SURPRISE! I gained 14 lbs with Harmon, and I'm pretty sure I still have most of that.
Well, no excuses for this mama anymore! I want to keep up with my crazies, and I have to be healthy to do that. Starting tomorrow, I will love my body and strive to make it something I can be proud of!

I really enjoy helping people DIY. If I could be a professional DIY Consultant, I'd be all over that like a skinny girl on a treadmill! It's so much more rewarding to do things yourself. Then, you get to be proud of what you've made! I can't argue with those who say, "I'm just not crafty." That's ok. Not all people are. But, everyone can be resourceful. And if you're neither, I will be those things for you :)
