Where did the motivation go?

About 2 months ago we joined a new, fancy, awesome gym. And for about two weeks I was totally into it! I loved the classes, the atmosphere, working out, everything! I got new workout clothes, all the stuff i needed to shower before work, along with new workout tunes for my i-pod. ( i told you i jump headfirst into everything!) I had big goals, and I was on my way to reaching them. I felt totally good, and very proud of myself!

Then it all kinda died down. And now i haven't been to the gym in weeks. NOT ONCE! Shame on me! (Did i mention how expensive our gym is....?) My goals haven't changed, and i still have all the clothes and tunes, the only thing i lost was the motivation. I need it back asap!

So Ive decided to take my little mission/journey/adventure/challenge to blog land. I will be posting every Friday about the week Ive had, my mood, motivations, etc. I'm hoping the fact that I'm broadcasting my progress to the world will make me a little more accountable, and keep the motivation up this time. I hope you guys don't mind this weekly peek into my personal life! I really want to reach my goal once and for all!!

The goal is simply this; to be healthier, happier, more confident and 30 pounds lighter!

Because i think everyone needs to be rewarded for hard work, I am going to give myself 3 mile stone rewards. Each after 10 pounds of weight loss. I haven't decided on the first two, but the 3rd Ive wanted for a very long time! My sweet reward is going to be a new pair of expensive, thin jeans. Think Joe's or true religion..... you know. I cant think of a better time to get my first pair! Suggestions for the other two?

Thanks for listening to me ramble! I'm looking forward to my new weekly post, and hopefully you like them too!

Happy Holidays

Casey and I ventured down to 34th street in Hampden last night to get into the holiday spirit! With Starbucks in hand, we walked down the (rather short) street and checked out all the lights. What a great Baltimore tradition!

Confession: I honestly believe that I have an obsessive personality. I find a new hobby, interest, whatever, and I am ALL about it! OBSESSED. Sometimes these obsessions pass in a short amount of time, and occasionally they reappear time and time again. This trait most commonly appears in me when it comes to a crafty hobby. Some examples; knitting, scrap booking, sewing, jewelry, rubber stamps, felting... you get the point. Its not necessarily a bad thing... just expensive.
My latest obsession has been the knitting and sewing thing. I cant seem to stop. Im making tons of Christmas gifts this year, and Im having a blast doing it! I rack my brains everyday trying to come up with new ideas of things to make (do you have any ideas??). The sewing machine mom lent me is what really pushed me over the obsessive edge. Thanks mom!
So in my frantic online searching for all things fiber and yarn related, i came across Amy Butlers site. Its beautiful, you must check it out! Amy is creating quite a company for herself, and coming out with the most beautiful products including; fibers, stationary, and patterns. If your looking for a fun way to kill a little time, browse all of her fabric patterns, its SO much fun!

Im off to continue browsing the web and thinking of new things to make. I should probably begin to think about jewelry again at some point too...

Monday Madness

I spent a lot of time posting new pieces in my shop today. Be sure to stop by and take a look. And... dont forget that my HOLIDAY SALE is still going on! 20% of everything!

Take a look at this cute little clutch i made as a gift this weekend! Ive been knitting my little fingers away! TOO much fun! And when my mom came for thanksgiving, she brought me her sewing machine. WAY TOO much fun!! I have been making lots of goodies for holiday gifts, and im racking my brain for new ideas!!

We went and got our Christmas tree this weekend, and spent the night decorating it!! It was fabulous! It takes me hours to put all the ornaments on, only because i have to stop and think about the story behind most of the ornaments i have in my collection. Its such a great time of year.
