Spring Runway Inspiration!!

by , in
~
Spring is in the air

and the first thing that comes to my mind

get me out of these boots
So

I went to look for a little shoe inspiration

at the 2010 Spring Runway shows

I think some people would really

be running away from these


They are fun though.....

Limited Edition Silk Flower Sandal

Honey

I have this work function
it's a dress up affair
so
please wear something with a little style
you know...
something that everyone will remember


~

So...your best friend is getting married

and she wants you to be a bridesmaid...

no problem you say.....
that's wonderful she says....
I don't know what the dress will look like yet....
but
I want it to go with these shoes...
don't ya just love them

What is your favorite shoe style ?

Spring Stitches

by , in
~
Happy Weekend Friends!!
~~



So, it's Tuesday

and I was so into this little Stitches project,

I blinked and next thing you know,

it's Friday and I have to go out right after work

to play cards with the girls.....

we have not done this for a while

and there was a lot of catching up to do,

so by the time I got home at 2:00AM,

I just crashed
~

When I woke up I realized

that I had missed 4 days of stitching

and who the heck knows what else....

it's amazing how time flies

when you have so much going on.
~
Thank goodness we Spring our clocks ahead this evening

to give me the illusion

that we have more time in our day

by making the sun go down later

~

So, I just did these...with minimal sleep and imagination

Day 10


Day 11


Day 12


Day 13

~

What would you do

with more time in your day??

~
Enjoy your Saturday

and don't forget to Spring your clocks forward!!!

Longer days here we come!!

Brain Health and Day 9 Stitches

by , in

~~


It is the time of year to not only give your home


and your body a tune-up


Why not Spring-Clean your brain while you are at it!!


The three cornerstones of better brain health are:


Good Nutrition


Regular Exercise


Keeping your Brain Stimulated

Keep some of these things in mind to assist:

Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in seafood, canola oil and green leafy vegatables

They are known to improve mood, and cognitive focus

(and really, who couldn't use a little more focus)

Secondly, another brain healthy habit is

to eat breakfast regularly to help sustain mental energy.

Avoid foods that are high in sugar, trans-fat and saturated fats.

Exercise is crucial for brain health.

Like good old nutrition, exercise can turn on

the stimulating production of healthy protein in the brain.

If you can, exercise amidst nature,

as this has been shown to improve mood even more.


Thirdly, mental stimulation,

look for ways to challenge your memory

by adding a variety of brain challenges to your day

games, puzzles, learning a foreign language

and of course artistic endeavours

help to improve memory and congitive centres.


I hope this gives you something

to think about...

see..were starting already

That was painless....keep it up!!

~

and now

for something completely different

I am loving this whole stitch along thing.

When I finished this one...

I just wanted to keep going...



I had to conciously put down everything

and move away...it was weird,

I was almost sad...crazy, I know.

It's is just so much fun...Thanks Amy Powers,


I'm glad I took the leap!!!



I know it is really hard to see what the heck this is.

Go ahead...take a guess....nope...

it's a handbag...really!


Not exactly how I pictured it...but...still pretty cute!!

Stitching Along.....

by , in

~~~
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday so far
~

Amy from Inspire Co. is turning 39 this year
so, she came up with this
adorable little stitchalong project
so we could all celebrate with her
*
*
Every day for 39 days
you do a freehand whatever comes into your head
1 inch square of stitching or embellishing!!
The idea is to post each square everyday!
You can follow along on the 39 squares blog
or there is a Flickr site to
see all of the creative minds at work daily.
~
I figured, what the heck,
have not handstitched in about 20 years
and this would be a great way to get back into it...
nevermind having to come up with
39 totally different ideas...
at least you have a day
to think about it
and you only have to fill 1 inch square.
~
Well, I jumped on the bandwagon
a couple of days late
and did my first 7 squares at once.
I gathered my supplies,
threads,
notions,
needles,
embellies
and off I went
~
I thought I would do a Spring theme
(how original I know)

Day 1

A rainbow





Day 2
A Butterfly



Day 3

You know how I feel about Flowers

(this will not be the last)


Day 4

Eau de JOY

Day 5

A little abstract




Day 6

Lace and Pearls

Day 7

Cupcake ----Yummy





All together they look so sweet......who knew
stitching could be so much fun
I know they are not perfect
But, neither am I
You can still join in.....pop over to 39 squares
and leave a comment for Amy
and she will include your blog on the listing!!
~
Now...don't just sit there...
get those creative juices flowing
~
Happy Sunday!!
