January 27th, 2012 | Twelve new goals for 2012

1. I have had a plan in my head for a shop for quite a while now. I’ve been working away at it, and I think this is the year I’m ready to go forward with it. Hopefully sooner than later, but at the same time I don’t want to rush it. I’m looking towards the Spring for a launch date right now.

4. I was reading about how to grow your own tea online, and decided that it sounds totally manageable for me! It takes a full year to do, and I plan to start this one in the Summer.

5. Fanciful Notion is my little projcet I was talking about a few posts ago

6. Save save save!!! When I move out again, I want to make sure I’m financially comfortable between bills & osap payments. Saving is a big priority for me this year.

7. I used to sew every week almost. Now its every few months… if that. :(

11. The problem with shift work is my schedule is constantly changing. Sometimes I have a hard time keeping up. I really want to try and create a steady schedule for the blog.

12. My kryptonite.

What are your goals for the year twenty-twelve?

January 19th, 2012 | Instafriday! (er… thursday..)

Oh my, it’s been a while isn’t it! December was a crazy busy month for me between holiday hours & the actual holidays! My grandmother also had a spill and wound up in the hospital and is still recovering. So sorry I’ve been absent, but I took a much needed break! Here is what my December looked like!

♥ Read my DIY for the cupcake bath bombs here

I’m so behind I have so many things to fill you in about! I’m sorry for the delay, but there will be one or two more Christmas themed posts as I want to share with you everything I got up to on the holidays! I’ll try to space them out a bit so its not Christmas-Overload! More recently…

♥ I’ve been addicted to this new little Chinese take-out place this month
♥ I won these lovely Blowfish shoes thanks to the Violet Bella blog!
♥ Made two new recipes I will posting soon! Meatloaf cupcakes & Cajun Chicken & Mango tacos!
Did a photoshoot this past weekend for this little project I’m working on. So far, it’s going really well! You can read about it here!
♥ Cupcake candles! Red velvet, vanilla, and strawberry.

Whew. That was a mouthful! What have all of you been up to?
