Well, I had good intentions to blog about Crafting and Creating yesterday for Blog Hoppin's fun linky party going on, but then...well, vacation got in the way! Guess what movie we saw last night??
Oh man!! This movie was SO. AWESOME. Like, I want to get up today and go to Greenland, and then climb the Himalaya Mountains to meet Sean Penn (who is getting awfully wrinkly, BTW, but he still looks so ruggedly handsome!)
LOVED LOVED LOVED it!!
So, here I am today playing catch up!
Crafting and Creating...
Here are some of the crafty things I have made in the past and I'm pretty proud of... I'm the type of crafter that doesn't like detail work, it overwhelms me, so if I am going to be crafty, it has to be easy and not involve alot of detail. Hence, the polka dot theme using a round sponge brush gets used a lot in my projects. Easy to do and looks great every time!!
|My beloved rocking chair!|
|My equally beloved polka dot box. I put all of my seasonal books in it each month to read to the kids!|
|Polka-dotted Fab Firsties...inspired by Babbling Abby's sign that she painted!|
|My crate seats covered in vinyl. Best thing I ever did was cover these bad boys in vinyl. My fabric got all yucky after the first year!|
|My first grade frame with adorable letters! I just love it!!|
Well, there you have it. Some of the fun craft things I have made over the past couple of years! :)
Disclaimer...I HATE exercise and all things sports related. SERIOUSLY HATE IT.
I hate to sweat,
I hate being sweaty in the sun.
I hate running.
I hate watching or playing sports.
I hate talking about sports.
My poor poor husband.
HOWEVER, I do love watching my daughter run in her high school cross country meets and watching my little one do gymnastics (maybe I'm living vicariously through them??).
Can you tell how much I hate sports and fitness?? In high school, I took one year of P.E. and then the next year, I begged the water polo/swimming coach to let me be his STATS girl, which got me into 6th period P.E., and he pretty much let me do NOTHING P.E. related for the rest of the year. It was GLORIOUS PEOPLE!!
Don't get me wrong, I DO like to be active. I like to go on walks with my doggy, I like to bike ride with the fam and go on hikes in the mountains, as long as it is a balmy 72 degrees outside and I am not sweating. Sweating makes me grouchy.
But 2 summers ago, I discovered yoga. YOGA is awesome, Peeps!! Not that hot sweaty yoga (gag!), but the kind of yoga I can do in our playroom with the lights off and 2 fans blowing on my at all times! Fans are a must. It helps with the sweating.
I just completed the Ultimate Yogi in 108 days with Travis Eliot...
|Here he is...Yes, okay, I just might have a little crush on him! No worries, my husband's good with it...|
|Ahhhh....Balance. MY LEAST Favorite DVD. SOOO HARD!|
Guess who commented?? YES!!! The real Travis Eliot! OHMAGERD!!! Geeking out...
|He said I was ultimate! Blush...|
I plan on doing another round of 108 this summer when I have all the time in the world (Ah summer, how I love thee....)!
Here are some the amazon links if you are interested in checking it out (especially if you are super un-atheltic like me and want a program that ANY BODY TYPE and any person can do)...
Also, if you are looking into easing into yoga without committing to the full 108 days, his cross train video is AMAZING and encompasses all the different types of yoga into one dvd...
and if you have never done yoga EVER and are looking to start, he has another DVD called Yoga Foundations...
Well, that's all I got on the crafting/creating and fitness front. I'm off to enjoy my last weekday of vacation! We get to go to the Ducks hockey game tonight!1 Hope I get to see a fight! :)
Enjoy your Friday, Peeps!
