About

Hello.  Thank you for visiting my blog!

In January 2012 I dared myself to start this blog.  I wanted to fit back into my favorite pair of jeans by losing 20 pounds in 3 months.  I thought that if I documented my journey of fitting back into my “skinny jeans” in a blog that I would actually accomplish this goal.   You can see my very first post here.  And yes I did, in fact, lose the 20 pounds in 3 months (phew!).   You can see my before and after results post here.

But what started out as a blog about losing weight, quickly turned into a much needed creative outlet for me.  This blog is the reason I stop procrastinating about projects I want to tackle, this blog is the reason I have fresh flowers on my table in a thrifted vase, this blog is the reason I try new recipes and share some of my own, this blog is the reason I create homemade memories for my daughter, this blog is the reason I am learning how to sew.

If you landed on this blog by googling something like “before and after weight loss,” good luck to you and try not to be so hard on yourself.  Be focused yet patient.

If you landed on this blog by googling food, DIY, or crafty stuff, I hope you walk away with some handy tips and tricks and most of all, inspiration.

I post every Monday (late) evening.  Hope to see you!

Jennifer

  1. I’m a fan! Found you when I googled for a tutorial on how to make cupcake headbands, but discovered your weight lost post and am now re-inspired to get back on track myself. Thank you for your self-deprecating and hilarious sense of humor- love it!
