Valentine's Past: DIY Valentine Cards

In preparation for this year's Valentine's Day card making, I was looking back at the last two year's creations. I have a good time doing these kinds of crafty things with and for my kiddos! I am excited to start on what we have planned for this year. After searching online and on Pinterest, I found lots of great ideas...50 of them, at Design Finch. The kiddos have picked out their favorites and we will be starting them this week! But I'm not spilling the beans on what we are doing!
 
Here's a peek at what we did the last two Valentine's Days:
 
2011
Bee My Valentine, Be my Ladybug
Bee My Valentine

Be my Ladybug Valentine

These were so fun! Both kids were in pre-school, so we only had six or so per kid to make. They took some time to do, but they were well worth it!

2012
Blowpop Sucker Photo Valentine

Blowpop Sucker Photo Valentine

I just love these! I saw this idea somewhere online, and I honestly can't remember where, but I had to make some of our own. I really like how much personality came through in the photos. I was tempted to do something similar again this year, but the kids had other ideas! Can't wait to share!
 
I hope your Valentine's Day is filled with love and cute cards!!

LIMU - My Family's Truth - 5 Months

August of 2012 I began my LIMU Experience. Over five months later. I am still going strong. LIMU Original, the nutrient-packed, super seaweed juice has changed our lives. Not only have we as a family experienced life-altering physical changes, we are feeling great, and making some extra spending saving money!
 
Most of our physical changes occurred within the first month and you can read about them here, here, and here. But what is most remarkable to me is the continued general wellness we have noticed. We feel good, are sleeping well, and are enjoying an active lifestyle. We have fared well in a very bad flu season and have not battled with constant runny noses. With two young children is school, that speaks volumes!
 
It's interesting how we really didn't notice several changes until thinking back to how life was before. Like the fact that I never have "stomach issues" after eating out any more. Before LIMU I suffered from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and almost every time I ate out, I ended up in the bathroom. Since I started drinking LIMU, I can't recall the last time I had a problem. And that's a big deal because we eat out several days a week. You would think I would have noticed that I was not having this problem anymore!
 
My husband just recently discovered that after a lifetime of being completely un-flexible he can actually touch his toes. Really. It's the craziest thing! Over the years, he has gone through phases of trying to stretch on a regular basis to improve his flexibility. He even tried a yoga class with me once(and swore he'd never even attempt that again). Even at his most flexible he wasn't even close to touching his toes. Now, quite remarkably, he can! This change the hubs and I laugh about, but not because it's funny, because it blows our mind!
 
Honestly, at this point nothing should surprise us. Our personal experiences alone prove to us this stuff works. But if that's not enough, our friends, family, and customers that drink LIMU are having remarkable results as well.
  • My dad: suffered from knee pain for several months, gone after 2 weeks
  • My mother-in-law: suffered from Fibromyalgia, feeling great after a month
  • My brother: high blood pressure, lowered/controlled without meds
  • My sister-in-law: chronic back pain, gone in a week
  • friend: painful ovarian cysts, no more pain or bursting cysts
  • customer: debilitating foot pain, gone after a week
  • friend: chronic allergies, off meds completely
  • customer: high blood pressure, off all meds
  • friend: rheumatoid arthritis, immediate pain relief
  • friend: intestinal tumor, pain gone and size decreased
  • friend(ex-gymnast/dancer): years of chronic knee pain, gone after a week
and the list goes on!
 
When I first began promoting LIMU, I primarily had financial motives. I wanted to make money. I believed in the business model and knew that this opportunity was special. The product has over 1000 third-party, scientific studies to back it up. The business model is like no other and works for the average person.  The management and training support is incredible. The timing and placement couldn't be better. The LIMU Company has recorded double digit growth % month after month since the relaunch September 2011. And yes, I am making money. Not only that, my family of four drinks LIMU for free! But what I have realized, in a short 5 months, is that the money part is second to how LIMU has changed our health, and those around us, for the better.
 
 
Let me help you start your own LIMU Experience!
 
***I'm no scientist, doctor, or expert on health or nutrition. I have read many of the studies, and even more testimonials, but the only thing I can attest to are my own personal experiences with LIMU.

Cork Board Jewelry Organization

Pinterest is such a great source for inspiration! The hard part is actually "using" the things I pin. I see so many neat DIY's and delicious looking/sounding recipes that I want to attempt. But, you know, having the time to actually accomplish a tenth of what you pin is nearly impossible! Ahhhhh, how I love Pinterest, though! A girl can dream!
 
For a while I have been eyeing various jewelry storage/organization ideas. My jewelry box was a disaster and I needed some help! For one, most of my necklaces were too long to actually fit in the box without them getting all tangled and ruined. And two, I could never find what I was looking for. I had some of my jewelry in the jewelry box, some on my nightstand, and some on my bathroom vanity. I wish I took a picture of my jewelry box. It was a disaster. Quite embarrassing, actually. Probably why I did NOT take a picture!
 
I had visions of these:

But ultimately decided to do something like this:
 
Initially, I thought I'd have to make something myself. But Hobby Lobby came to the rescue! This is what I ended up with: 
Cork Board Jewelry Organization Storage Display
I love how it turned out! All of my less precious jewelry is easy to see and choose from, and tangle free!

The best part is that it was on sale for 50% off!! There were a few other more decorative frames that I could have chosen, but I decided that since it was in my closet that it was just fine to have a simple frame. It was cheaper...or less expensive, if you prefer.

Mark those as PINcomplete!

Bird Watching

My new bird feeder is a very appreciated Christmas gift...appreciated by me and the birds! It is apparently not too conducive to getting any work done since I've sat here for the last 20 minutes just watching all the birds come and go.

I have seen several varieties of birds; little blue ones, grey ones, yellow ones, browns ones, and even a red one! I am obviously not a bird expert, but I sure am enjoying watching them!

I got a gift. It's for the birds!
