2014 Christmas ornaments for my friends

Finished the Christmas ornaments I'm making for my friends this year, cinnamon-stick Christmas trees.  I drew a free-form ... did not want to make it perfect, sewed the 2 pieces of fabric (putting a piece of ribbon at the same time for hanging)  leaving a small part open at the bottom.  stuffed, inserted a cinnamon stick and glued it close with the hot-glue gun.  Then I added a small bell and a tage saying 'Handmade by Lucie 2014'.

2014 Christmas craft

I've had this project in  a ziploc bag for 2 years and I finally did it.  It was pretty easy, once you get the supplies.

Word for 2014

My Word for 2014: Self-improvement
"improvement of ones’ status, mind, abilities, etc… by one’s own efforts"


To that effect I have taken several points I want to improve and made an excel list so I can check each day what did get done.  I also put post-its around my computer screen as reminders.

I don't know how to insert a document  so here's what I wrote: a column with the days of the week and then columns with these titles: Drink more water, Stretching (chin tucks, tummy tucks, core strengthening), Exercise or Yoga, Reading self-improvements (15 min a day) or a conference, Deep-breathing or meditation, Spanish (I want to learn spanish so either read or listen), Earlier bed-time, Soup (need to eat soup 2 to 3 times a week), Before bed-time routine to do 15 min. before going to bed, Less Facebook, 15 min of creativity, Declutter, 1 Happy thing.

I'm hoping I get into the habit of things!

More card-making stuff

some cards & boxes I made.  Received all in a kit with instructions with pictures and made them at home.  The 5 small boxes were made from just one 12" X 12" cardstock. They were fun to make.
Didn't write anything yet on them.
