100gooddeeds.org DEED #1

A few weeks ago, I met an incredible woman.  Her name is Mary Fisher.  She was on a short vacation and I was her Cabana Host for the day.  I didn't poke and prod as much as I wanted to, but the small conversation we did have was very heartwarming and genuine.  She told me she made jewelry and showed me her bead bracelet she was wearing.

She told me that she taught women in Africa how to make these bracelets.  And the purchase of these bracelets employ these women (who wouldn't otherwise have a source of income) and pays for the cost of the supplies.  WHOA, the most simple idea made the biggest impact on these woman's lives- how amazing!! 

 The bracelet actually has a purpose as well!!  It's called 100 Good Deeds.  For every anonymous deed you move the rubber ring over to the next bead.  There are 100 beads for every deed and essentially acts as a counter.  Wearing the bracelet is a constant reminder of doing good- and yet another simple idea has made the biggest impact on my life and the way I go about doing things.  

When you get your bracelet, it tells you who made it...

And that is my very first deed!  Sharing my story has already resulted in 5 people purchasing bracelets and joining me in this incredible Good Deed Movement.  Lets light up someone's life, help fight a cause or do a selfless act and strive to be a better YOU!  Stay humble and do the right thing.  xoxo

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street...

Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house...

In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the window…

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.  

Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for a week…
Guess what!?  I am about 2 weeks away from launching the Ultimate Instant Pot Beginner Handout!!  I am so excited to share this with you!!  It has taken me a little longer than I would have wanted, but there is so much love jam-packed into 10 pages with tons of helpful tidbits!! 

There are so many moving parts and pieces that need to be in place before it goes live on Etsy and I am working hard to make it all happen!  I have also decided to offer a printed version and a gift version so you can kick back and relax and I'll have it shipped directly to you and your loved ones!

Honestly this has been such a fun journey so far and I eagerly await to hear your feedback once you get your hands on one!
