a simple and bright calendar

I’ve started feeling more creative and free-spirited lately.. Maybe it’s because we are so close to spring?
Crochetting, drawing, reading and day-dreaming to my hearts content!
I cannot wait for the days i can go out on long bike rides, pick wildflowers, read under a tree, spend long afternoons doing yoga by the pool, wake up to beautiful sunrises, and feel so at peace with the world as warm winds caress my skin and the sun kisses my face.

While i’ve been cooped up in the house lately, I found all sorts of cute png’s and brushes that i’m so super duper excited to use to make everything cuter.
like, the calendar i made for april but am way too excited about it so i’m using it for february


I think it’s pretty darn cute.
I used pngs that i came across on deviantart.

I like being able to fill out all the days and whatnot in whatever writing-style i please.. 🙂

 

Muffins, sunbutter and rhubarb

I love spending my time in the kitchen.
Yesterday, i spent all afternoon making muffins, sunflower butter and washing then cutting up 15c. (120oz.) of fresh rhubarb from the garden (mmm! i love rhubarb!)
Will definitely be baking something with rhubarb soon 😀

My muffins, sadly, turned out badly. so very, very badly.
I don’t eat grains so i had to make my own Baking Powder… Well, i’m going to have to figure out how to use it cause it made my muffins super salty/baking soda flavor.   I literally gag on them it’s so bad! i’m so embarrassed and sad! I know for a fact that i followed the recipe 100%, minus the 1/4c. coconut oil that someone forgot to list when to add in the recipe so i forgot about it. but i doubt that would cause the major explosion of baking soda flavor?? I’ll have to play with the homemade baking powder.. see if i have to omit the baking soda/something in the recipe when i use it.

On the bright side, My sunflower butter turned out out Perfectly! so yummy!!
And i happily snacked on rhubarb while i cut it up 🙂

well, I’m going to clean my room, clean up my sisters clothes (re-fold everything) and tidy up her stuff.  Maybe have a nap after that… mmm

Breezy days

I love this warm weather!  I always feel so much more alive when it’s sunny and warm.
breezy days that carry the scent of flowers.. mmm.. my favorite.

Every year i have a sort of “Playlist” that forms that is my summer go to music.
This year, i am in love with Korean indie and ballads.  Pretty and simple music, music meant for just running away to the middle of nowhere with no one to stop you.  Music that pulls on my heartstrings.

So far, these seem to be the start of my summer playlist 🙂

Some old, some new 🙂

Today has been super hot! 31 degrees and really humid! Although i said i love warm weather, i really dislike the humidity here.. I’m not even hot yet i feel like i’m dying!  Canada likes to go from 0 Degrees to 31 Degrees in two days.  My body has no time to adjust! uggh

I have been in a baking mood the last couple days! I’m hoping to bake some muffins or bread this weekend 🙂  I have to make some more Almond Milk too so i’m super excited for my weekend! I love spending time in the kitchen 😀 Weekend will definitely be busy for me! My boyfriend will be away so i have to keep my mind occupied so i don’t miss him too much. hehe

I re-organized my room last night.  I feel so much better now that I’ve tidied up a bit more.  Just have to get into all my boxes under the bed!  yet another thing to do this weekend!

Well, i’m going to make myself a cup of green tea.
Hopefully the weather gets a bit cooler tonight so it’s comfy to sleep.

Oh, spring.

Oh, spring.

You have finally graced us with your warm embrace and moist air.
My skin, hair and lungs thank you.

Seriously, my body hates winter. Health goes up and down constantly, hair turns into wheat, skin decides to break out, body decides it can’t keep itself warm, etc.

I am so excited for warm weather! Even though i have to avoid the sun like the plague (Burn super fast) I still get my 5 – 20 minute soak everyday before covering up and i love it! no more having to mentally prepare myself to be assaulted by icy cold wind when i go outside. i can just prance out the door and feel the warmth of the sun shine down on me.. mmm. Spring makes me so happy.

A little summer inspiration

I have been in such a spring and summer mood lately! This year i hope to fill my wardrobe with much dresses, sunhats, collars, lace, and anything that has to do with flowers!
I love sewing and making little accessories in the summer.  Warm weather always seems to make my creative side blossom! hehehe.
So, I have been looking for a little summer inspiration (i’m already ecstatic to get my hands on some supplies!) for what i want to buy and make starting spring. (today is the first day of spring, can you believe it??) Continue reading

In one fleeting moment..

You know those moments when someone says something unexpected, but it’s exactly what you’ve always wanted to hear?  like, if someone who is good at one thing tells you that you are good at doing it too.. you feel rather fantastic.  I had that this morning.. In one fleeting moment, i had a passion returned to me.. and now i feel all bubbly and terrific.

Recently, I began to have all my creative passions come back, things like painting, drawing, sewing, etc.  It’s been over three years since i have had any form of desire to have anything to do with these things.  I’m quite ecstatic to arrive and settle in at my new home so i can start putting my creative mind to work.

I’ll start looking for a sewing machine soon..  The two that i own are much too old and run down to use anymore.  And my Grandmother’s appears to be broken.
I pray i can find one that isn’t too expensive.  I’m hoping to make myself some lovely skirts for summer 🙂 Often times i can’t find what i like in stores. I recently came across vintage Simplicity, Butterick, and McCalls sewing patterns that i forgot i had in my possession. I’m hoping i can alter some of the patterns to fit my personal taste.
We’ll see how that goes,  pray i don’t mess it up hmm!

Anyways, i feel like i am just blubbering on for no reason.
I have to keep moving forward with my day.  I drank some piping hot lemon water with cayenne pepper (It did not agree with my taste buds one bit!) so i am feeling rather chipper and will use this burst of energy to tidy up the bunny cages and help finish the packing that is left to do.
