To create new habits.

This last month I gave up something incredibly addictive and I would even venture to call it one of the ultimate bad habits. Ok, I'll tell you. ... ... I bite my nails, or I guess BIT my nails would be better. I know, pretty gross but I can honestly not remember a time where I wasn't biting them. Anyways, I gave it up.

Cold turkey.

I've been looking at my nails this whole week thinking "This is awesome!! They've never been this long!". You never notice it, but life is a lot easier with long nails... seriously!

So in light of my new accomplishment, I wanted to try to break another bad habit of mine. I figure I am on a role and I DO NOT want to stop here. As I talked about in an earlier post, I have struggled for a while with my weight. I think I have found the root of my problem... SWEETS.

Oh, just saying makes me drool. The cookies, the cakes, the donuts, the candybars. Anythings with sugar I will inhale... for reals. It's bad, so very bad and I want it to stop.

For the next 21 days I will be going without sugar. NO SUGAR AT ALL!
To make things interesting (and more bearable for me) I will be replacing sweets with crafts. I will be doing one craft each day in hopes that putting my focus on making something cute and affordable will help take the edge off of giving up one of my true loves. I will then feature each of the crafts on this blog.

So, our we ready? Am I ready? I sure hope so!

Let the 21 day Crafting Over Sweeting begin!

It's been a while...

I know. I know. It has been a while. I've kind of been trying to figure out what I want to do with this blog. I know I want it, but I've been struggling to come up with what I want to post about.

So I thought and thought and thought... and then I finally decided.

I want this blog to be about me. I know that sounds selfish, but here me out. I spend 24 hours of the day worrying and taking care of the little people and the hubs. Don't get me wrong... I LOVE it. Seriously, I do. I don't know what my life would be with out them, or who I would be without them. The fact remains that just for a little bit during the week, I want to focus on me. That's what this blog will be about.

So hang in there. I'm still here, and if you're still hanging around maybe we can be friends... ok?
