Happy New Year!

Hard to believe how fast time goes!  The start of another New Year already.  Instead of resolutions this year, I have decided to focus on good things.  Like making sure to smile when I am out and about, and being courteous even when somebody isn't being very nice.  Kill them with kindness!!  I think this world needs a little more niceness and a little less picking.

People don't seem to have common sense anymore.  I don't know why they call it common sense when it seems so uncommon.

I hope that this is a good year for everybody!

Painted Floor Mat

This was a black rubber floor mat.  You could put it by the door for people to wipe their feet on before coming into the house.  Although, instead I decided to paint it and use it on the floor in my craft area downstairs.  It's done with acrylic paint.  I just brushed several coats on til it was the shade I wanted.  The part that takes the longest is waiting for coats of paint to dry.

Interesting Experiment

This was a picture drawn by a little boy who is 2.5 years old.  He drew this and put it in my bag.  I had heard about parents coloring in their childrens crayon drawings.  So I decided to try it out.  I colored in his orange scribbles.  It works best with pictures the kids draw that have lines that are not too close together.

Been busy

This is the mat that I have been working on.  It is a 2' by 3' rubber mat.  I used acrylic paints on it and a clear matte sealer.  I used it in my craft area.

I have several other photos of craft projects that I have been working.  I will post them soon.

Clean Eating

Clean Eating....This is something that I have started doing.  There are so many preservatives in food these days, not to mention chemicals.  All the things that were never in foods when I was growing up.  I decided it's time to take back my diet and actually start cooking!  Everybody gets so used to being in a hurry and grabbing something quick, whether that's fast food, or a frozen dinner of some kind.  It's time to start looking at what ingredients are in things and actually cook.  There are lots of alternatives you can do.  I have prepared things on one day and froze them in large zip lok bags.  Then it's pretty easy when I'm in a hurry to still have a good meal.  I just defrost a zip lok and cook it for dinner that night.

I am doing a clean eating challenge.  If you'd like the grocery list and recipes let me know and I'll be sure you get them.

Gray hair

Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.

Proverbs 16:31

Gray hair isn't so bad.  I have also called it my strands of glitter!
