Love really is in the air lately!
I've had Valentine's day on the brain for a little while now and decided to make this felt cookie dough for the shop. It was my first time making this, and my kids couldn't keep their eyes off this set as I was making it. I even made some of the icing removable so some of the cookies can be "decorated". It was really fun to make!
I also decided to try my hand at making a heart garland. It was much easier to sew than I had anticipated, but as this one was my first practice, I'll have to keep it as I had a little glitch with my sewing machine when I started it. So I foresee more heart cutting and sewing in my near future for the shop and for my home. (Have you seen Mama West Wind's Valentine Peekaboo ornament tutorial? Go check it out, its super adorable! I know I'm planning on making them for my kid's to hang in their rooms!)
And since love is in the air, I decided to love myself a little more these days, and not just feed myself, but nourish my body. A few years ago, I used to drink green smoothies daily and I felt so amazing thanks to it. My energy levels were through the roof and I had started shedding some unwanted pounds. And green smoothies are what got me started. For some reason I fell off the wagon and never went back to drinking them daily. But a couple days ago, I decided it was time to love myself again.
(this particular green smoothie is not green because of all the raspberries in it, but it's actually packed with about 2 cups of spinach!)
My body deserves it, as does my soul. It's great to show love to others, but why not to ourselves too!
So tell me, do you do anything special to show yourself some love?
