I love crafts!

I love crafts, I wish I was better at them actually. I am just now learning basic sewing because I want to make a wider range of crafts :)
Here's what I've been working on recently!

A must read!

If you love the paranormal then "Switched" by Amanda Hocking is a must read for you!
I, for one, love anything and everything supernatural! Most of what I read is about the paranormal so when I saw this book on the shelf at Wal-Mart, I couldn't help myself. I was skeptical at first when I saw the world "Trylle" on the cover but I decided to give it a whirl!
 The story is about a girl named Wendy who discovers she is a Changeling and by discovering this, a whole new world she never knew existed opens up to her. It has romance, drama, and lots of unexpected surprises. I definitely suggest reading it if you are a big fan of the paranormal world.

Hello 2012!

Hello Friends,
I'm back! I've decided it's time to get back into the swing of things and starting my blog again is a top priority for me.  These past few months have been hectic and a blur and I really want to take the time to focus on the things that are important to me again.  I had just started feeling better a few months ago. My Endometriosis seemed to be under control and I was able to eat and drink and have fun like the good old days! So, I took full advantage of it..probably too much. I have spent a lot of these past few months out partying with friends and having a good time. It seems it may have caught up to me though. This past month has been particularly hard, my Endo seems to be flaring up again and I guess I shouldn't be surprised; I wasn't taking very good care of myself.  It's hard to be 26 and not be able to go out and get crazy like I used to, when all my friends can still do it. This past week I got very ill again and made my first ER visit in quite some time. I realized I can't do this to myself, I really need to take better care of myself. I had to miss 3 days of work and have been home bound for 5 days now and needless to say, it sucks! I am making changes though, I have to! I have already changed my diet and have signed up for a gym membership to keep myself healthy. Now, these may all seem like simple steps BUT, if you know me, you know these are very big changes for me. My anxiety used to be so bad I couldn't even step into a gym by myself, let alone get a membership; And diet, HA, that was a foreign word to me. I can't live like this any longer though, I have to change. So, anyway, expect to be seeing more of me! I am going to trade in nights of going out for blogging and crafts and anything else I enjoy. Not to say I wont go out at all anymore but, just not as often.  In closing, let me share some of my fun pics from these past few months!
