If It Were A Book

I’ve been trying to accept that good things happen to bad people..

I ordered a book my friend Jani recommended called  “Women Who Think Too Much”. I spend a large amount of my time doing that & I’m ready to make a change for the better. Women tend to overanalyze things & it’s not healthy. It will be my new bath time read. Thank you Jani.

Hell week (or hell weeks) is among us and it’s everything you’d imagine it to be. An article is due every day for 11 days. We typically have 1 article per week so it’s a lot more work then we’re used to.

I’ll be in SLC for CJ’s funeral this weekend, back home for a day, then back to SLC for an all day work summit next week. Not much I can do other then get plenty of rest & prepare myself mentally. Anyway, if you have the time I want you to ask yourself this question today: if your life was a book and you were the author how would you want your story to go? Watch this video & get inspired to make it an incredible story.

 I hope you all have a great Thursday. All my love, xoxo

Needed: Girlfriends

These are the days when I miss my girlfriends – When I wish they were still just up the street & could come over on a whim. Sometimes crafts like this just aren’t the same without a glass of wine & your sissys. We’re trying to plan a little trip up here for them. If it works, this will be on the agenda.

Ps. wine really would be needed for me to be okay with RIPPING pages out of a book. Especially an old book, because they smell the best & feel so nice every time you turn the page. Yes, I do have a passion for books. Best things in the world.

Need:

  • old bookpages, drawings, maps, woodgrain contact paper, anything paper!
  • mod-podge & a brush
  • jars (make sure you can fit a candle inside them first) or hurricane glass

Step 1 – Rinse out your jars and remove labels. A good way to get labels off is to first fill the jars with hot water, let them soak a few minutes, and while the hot water is in the jar, just peel the label off. Brilliant.

Step 2 – Pick out your pages and glue them with mod-podge onto the jars.

(Here is a recipe for DIY modge podge)

Step 3 – Let your jars dry on wax paper for a few hours.

Step 4 – Do extra decorating if you like – tie ribbon or string around for a little more color!

Step 5 – Put candles in and you’re done. Put them around your house, or set them aside in a box for special occasions.
