The Journey Begins.

A few months ago I started on a journey to change my life. I was over weight, not happy with how I looked. I felt depressed and just didn’t want to do anything. It all started with a visit to my doctor. I wasn’t feeling well and while I was seeing my doctor. I was told that my blood pressure was really high and was given a prescription for medication. He told me that I needed to change my lifestyle and that high blood pressure was the number one silent killer in the US. That day was the first day of my Healthy life.

I started nutritional cleansing. It’s basically 2 shakes a day, 2 snacks at 150 calories and a healthy clean meal of 600 calories. I also had vitamins and supplements that helped me with energy, stress and sleep. After about 4 days of using this system I felt different. I could feel the energy and I was sleeping a full night sleep. I was feeling better and I wasn’t feeling hungry.

After the 30 days I weighed myself and I measured. I was in shock. I lost 13.6 lbs and 20 inches combined. I don’t think I could of done this on my own, this system has changed my life in so many ways.  I feel amazing and I’m on my way to a better me. The pictures below are my before pictures when I started.

DIY Coffee Filter Wreath

Hello everyone!  So I wanted to make a Christmas wreath and I came across a DIY coffee filter wreath. So I went our and bought the supplies.

  • Coffee filters about 3 packs which had 150 per a pack so a little over 300 filters
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft of floral ring. I used the large one about 18in.
  • Mixing spoon this is optional it helped me to keep the filters held down with the hot glue gun and not burn myself. I used the handle portion. img_1136img_1137img_1138img_1139So with this spoon I flipped it over and used the handle. See pictures below. Then on the end of the filter I added hot glue and stuck it onto the craft ring. It took a very long time. I had to glue each individual filter so off and on it took me about 2 days to complete.

    img_1161This is the wreath all done! I love how it turned out! It just took a little time to make and I would do it again maybe next time choose a smaller ring. Thanks for stopping by.

DIY Halloween Pails.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I wanted to share with you all a project I did for my grandsons. I made them custom halloween pails for their candy. Here is what they look like.


I bought the pails at Hobby Lobby for like 4.00 each. I then used my Cricut Explore Air to design and cut out the vinyl. I love how they turned out. The kids loved them and I’m that they can keep them and use them for as long as they can.
