Sock Monkey Hat

I have been really wanting to make a sock monkey lately, but can't get out of hat mode! So I decided to make a sock monkey hat for my etsy shop.
I'm hoping to make some more with the monkey color being different, I have so many ideas running through my head it's insane!
Here is a picture of my reluctant son modeling the hat. I told him I wouldn't feed him unless he did it, Just kidding!




I am going to make some changes with the color of the tassels!
So go check out my Cozi at home etsy shop! I have a listing for customized sock monkey hats as well as one in the traditional colors!

The Beachbody Challenge

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received emails which say something like, “I really wish we could afford for me to get healthy and fit but…”

You know what? If you start with that attitude, you’ll likely never succeed at having a healthier life.

Sure, you might not be able to afford some of the fitness programs as someone else–but the truth is: There are several different programs in different price ranges, and you can afford to get healthy, you just need to make some changes in what you spend money on, and most of these changes will be a boost to your new, healthy lifestyle.

But it will never happen until you stop making excuses and commit to change.

So I'm challenging you to set aside the negativity and commit to wholehearted willingness to change your mindset, your shopping habits, and quite possibly even your life. Look at your budget, keep a log of what you spend, and I guarantee you that you will find the money to order the products and get fit and healthy in no time.

With me, I looked at what I was spending, I cut out the really expensive starbucks, and went with the americano every once in awhile. We are also saving on doctor visits, supplements, and produce. We get everything we need in Shakeology to keep us out of the doctors office, it has all the supplements we were buying, and all of the fruits and veggies we need for the day. Sure I still buy fruits and veggies, but I don't get the ones I think we should be eating that go bad in the fridge, I get the ones that we like to eat that are seasonal and on sale, and leave it at that. I also got rid of my $46 per month gym membership and bought a beachbody program, this program was paid with 2 1/2 months of gym membership, and I will have it FOREVER! Not to mention saving on gas to and from the gym, and all the regret when I don't want to go in the freezing cold. Now I get to workout at home, whenever I find the time during the day, and there is always 30 minutes somewhere :) And I have friends and workout buddies on my team beachbody page to support me along the way and even work out with me! We also chat after our workouts and share or progress.

Your body is likely never going to change until you are also willing to.

So join the beachbody challenge! You could even win money, and you will have a fitness program forever, and a healthy meal everyday that tastes like your cheating ;)

My Crock Pot Bolognese Sauce

I made this the other night, serving it over gluten free penne. We decided that it was good, but would be even more awesome on homemade pizza!

Ingredients:
2 28 oz cans petite diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
1 cup white wine
1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
Cooked penne, spaghetti, or whatever pasta you have on hand. We used Gluten Free penne


Combine all ingredients in the crock pot, cooking on low for 8 hours. 
Here is what it looks like when I had it all put together to cook...

And here is what it looked like all cooked up, YUMMY!

Put leftovers in the fridge for PIZZA! One of our favorite places is Bostons because of their yummy gluten free pizza. They us Bolognese sauce on their pizzas and it's so yummy.

Sweet little mummy





These fun little Mummies are so easy to make, and a great craft on a rainy day.

Materials:
1 roll of gauze, 1" wide.
1 package of small popcicle sticks
1 package wooden short spoons
1 package google eyes
1 package glue dots

Take wooden spoon, add small popcicle sticks for arms and legs, attaching with glue dots.
Wrap gauze around all of spoon and sticks. Add eyes with glue dots.

I told you they were easy!

This idea was adapted from one on familyfun.com. I didn't care much for cutting the bigger sticks, the smaller sticks work out so much better.

Galaway wool scarf to keep me warm.

I have been under the weather with a cold the last few days. I've been working at resting on the couch, and decided to pass the time by crocheting myself a new fingerless glove & scarf set.

The scarf is super simple, I used galaway wool in purple tweed and a light heather. The green is berracco vintage that I had in my stash.
Galaway Stripe Scarf.
H hook
3 colors of yarn

Chain 254 or whatever the length you wish, just make sure you end in an even number.
Row 1. Chain 2, HDC in each chain across, turn fasten off and change yarn colors.
Row 2. Repeat row 1 until the scarf is the width you would like. I added a single crochet on the very last row.

Once I got done with the scarf I decided I wanted to make some fingerless gloves to go with it.
The wool yarn eater wanted to help, but also wanted to keep Mom warm. I swear the cat and dog know when I'm sick!
The cuff is done, I love making these gloves because you can make them to any size you need, for anybody.
On to the third color. I'm getting there, just half way and one more glove to go!
Here is the finished product! I love how the colors turned out. The green is a little bit brighter in this picture than it really is.
If you would like to make some fingerless gloves to go with your scarf please go to my Ravelry shop by clicking HERE.

Whimsy Halloween Wreath

I love Halloween, maybe it's because I love Fall! And I love to decorate for Halloween & Fall.
When I went to the shed to find all my fall/halloween decoration totes I was missing on :( I can't find it to save my life. So I decided to make up some new decorations.
So here is everything I used for this whimsy wreath. Everything was purchased at Hobby Lobby, and most of the Halloween goodies were Under $2. Right now all Halloween is on sale 30% off, and she even gave me 40% off of the wreath.

Whimsy Wreath:
1. Straw Wreath
2. One roll wide ribbon
3. On roll not so wide ribbon
4. Glue dots
5. Picks, wood words, and whatever else you want to decorate your wreath.





Basically all I did was wrap the wide ribbon around the wreath and attach it to itself with the glue dots & decorate. I need to move the EEK up a little bit, as I'm looking at it, it just doesn't look quite right to me.
So that's my little craft of the day today. Now I want to go make something else!

A transformation to a whole different life





Last March I had one of those snap moments. I was so sick and tired of being sick, tired and fat! I was even so sick and tired that I didn't have the energy to work out and try to take care of the fat part!

One day our 16 year old son was talking about how they were doing different beachbody workouts in p.e. and he wanted us to get one to do as a family so that He would get in shape for fall soccer season. He also was worried about us not being in shape and always being sick. So I started looking at the beachbody website to see what these programs were all about. We decided on getting Tony Hortons Power 90 since we were just getting started and wanted to work our way up to something else. In hindsight I would have started with Chalean Extreme, as we got very board with power 90 after 60 days.

Even though I was working out, I was still struggling with the no energy to work out to get rid of the fat part. So I started to search for eating plans and things to do to help with my energy and to feel better, nothing worked that I found. One day I was looking at different friends walls on facebook and saw a post about shakeology from one of my old school friends. She was now a beachbody coach and was talking about all the things shakeology can do for you. So I went to her website and read all about it. At first I was hesitant about the price, but after seeing all the videos, reading about how people with digestive issues were now off medications and feeling 100% better, I decided to take the plunge and try it. Since there is a 30 day money back guarantee when you first order, and you get free workouts with your first order I had nothing to loose but weight and feeling sick all the time!

I have to say, I can't believe that I waited so long to try this! My 16 year old son is also on it with me and we have seen a 100% improvement with his asthma, endurance, overall health, you name it, He feels 100% better. I also feel 100% better, I don't crave junk food anymore, and I've lost 23 pounds. I now have the energy to workout every day to loose even more weight and be even more healthy. My son and I also fight with digestive issues, I'm happy to say that since we have been taking shakeology all of our issues are gone. We cut out gluten 3 years ago, but we were still fighting belly aches from time to time, that is all gone now!

I am also on to doing Turbo Fire & Chalean Extreme for my workouts, thanks to all the energy I have and how much better I feel to be able to exercise again! Being able to push play in my own house, whenever I want, not having to drive to the gym or pay for a monthly membership that I hardly ever used, not to mention I received all the tools I needed with my workouts, and all the energy and healthy eating from Shakeology. Even CEO Carl Daikler says He is the worst about eating his veggies, that's why He decided to find a way to get them in a yummy shake ;)

I can't say enough about how wonderful this product is! I also am saving money by not purchasing as much produce that we never eat and that always goes bad, and also not purchasing vitamins, minerals, herbs, everything under the sun to make us feel better, It's all in shakeology. I sat and figured out one day how much we are saving per month after we purchase our shakeology, and we are saving about $134 per month!

Here is my before and after pictures. I hate showing them but I want everyone to see what even at almost forty (I will be there December 9th 2011) I was able to get fit and healthy! You are never too old!


Being a beachbody coach, my main objective is to help people feel better! So I'm running a shakeology challenge.... 


I need your help! I'm looking for people who are interested in doing a 90 day shakeology challenge. You must track your results & commit to drinking a shake once a day. Everyone that commits to this challenge will receive a gift from me. The person that has the best success story will win a beachbody workout of their choice. Message me for more details, I really want every one to feel as great as my Son and I do :) 
So if you are interested in doing this challenge with me please send me an e-mail at foxsoccer20@gmail.com and please check out my website: My Shakeology And if you are interested in getting workout go to My Shop.

Awesome Note Has Me Organized!

I am so glad that I was told about Awesome Note! I have all my house keeping to do's by the day they are due, and they are even set to come back up on my list the same day every week, so no need to waste time putting them back on my to do. What I really love is that I can have different folders for different to do lists and other types of notes.


I also have gratitude now and gratitude future folders. Everyday I write what I'm grateful for now, in the gratitude future folder I write exactly how I want my life to be and how grateful I am for these future things to be happening soon. You would be amazed at how much better you feel when life throws you different curve balls if you just write these two lists everyday, this simple practice has really turned my life around.

Every Sunday I do my menu, go through my food inventory list and add or delete items, and go through my business and house keeping lists to make sure that I'm not missing anything or need to change something for the week.


Here is my menu for this week:
Yes there are a couple days missing because we will be gone from home for soccer. I set due dates on these menu items for the days that we want to have that certain menu item for dinner.



So check out Awesome Note. I have it on my iphone and ipad and I'm so glad that I paid the little amount for such an incredible app!

Halloween S'Mores

Beginner Knitted Coffee Cozy

When I was going through my Gooseberry patch Homemade Harvest cookbook I found a section of craft ideas. This easy and fast knitted cozy was one of them...
Very simple pattern, and this beginner knitter completed this cozy in less than an hour.


Besides finding this fun pattern that kept me busy last night, I also have a huge list of recipes I want to try. Tonight I made the slow cooker mac n cheese.




It was super good, and a big hit with my boys. Not to mention that it was nice to have dinner all ready and waiting in the crock pot.

So go to amazon.com and look for Gooseberry patch Homemade Harvest. It's worth the money!

Mummy Craft with my BFF

Today my BBF and I spent the day together. We went to Starbucks, and ordered keurig coffee together while at Starbucks, we thought that was kinda comical. We also bought all the materials needed to make craft stick mummies from family fun.com
We only have made one so far, but the plan is to make seven of them and string them into a garland. It was so much fun to have a craft type day, and let all my worries just fly away :)
If you also want to make a Craft Stick Mummy go to http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/craft-stick-mummy-673394/. What a great craft to make with your kids or your BFF ;)

Fall Crochet Project

I'm ready for Fall to show up! Summer is nice, and I really enjoy it, but Fall and Winter are my favorite season. Our weather has been so hot and dry, we are ready for crisp cool air and rain, nights by the fire, crock pot meals, and cocoa.

So here is a garland I made using Lion Brands Felted leaf pattern. I used cotton instead of wool, so the felting was out of the question. But they kept the shape nicely, and I like them a lot better than the wool version.




The other thing that I'm working on is a pattern from the Sept/Oct 2010 edition of Crochet Today. I love how Crochet Today has been publishing retro patterns with a new twist, and the pumpkin and black cat pot holders are just too cute not to make. So here is what my pumpkin looks like so far....
So what are you working on? What are your favorite fall crochet projects?

REBOOT Day 9

We are almost done! Tomorrow is the last day for REBOOT! Hopefully you have gotten something out of this. I would love to hear about it!

BODY: Enjoy your hard earned energy! Put all you have into your workout.

MIND: Take an alarm free nap or get lost in a book. You will feel so revived.

LIFE: Look into what you can do to make your body feel even better. A massage, or just even rolling a golf ball under your feet for a few minutes will help more than you could imagine!

Organized SAHM or Lazy Homemaker?

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, things people have said in the past that are still sticking with me today.

In the past when I have said I am a stay at home Mom people have said "Oh, so you get to just veg and be lazy all day right?" uh.... NO! I do get my breaks to read and lay in the sun in the summer time, or watch a movie in the winter while still doing laundry, but lazy?

So lately I have really been feeling like maybe I am lazy? Maybe what I do here at home isn't good enough and I should be going back to school, or growing up and deciding what I want to be? Or am I already what I want to be? Maybe when our son goes off to college I don't want a conventional job, maybe I want to help others, work from home, be something unconventional.

I've heard people say, "Oh Julie is a stay at home Mom, shes so lazy, sits around eating bon bons all day and watching t.v." So I guess that's why I am always up and moving, doing things. Or why I feel really guilty when I take a break from home making and read for a few minutes or check my e-mail.

Maybe I get to spend some "lazy" time because I'm an organized stay at home Mom, that got all of her stuff done in the morning? Maybe I worked my ass off to the point where I was so dog tired I needed a break? If I remember correctly all of the "Working" folk get 2 15 min breaks and at least a 30 min lunch right?

Well I could tell myself how awesome I was and how much I had done today, now its time for me, but I still hear those words from people.. "Julie is a lazy stay at home mom." Well, I'm tired of hearing that from people and from my own inner brat, that by the way would be very unhappy if she had to go out and get a 9-5 job where it cut into her family and fun time.

Lately I have been watching you tube videos and learning lots of things from Chalene Johnson and her 30 day challenge. I also just subscribed to her car smart audio program. I know what I want to "Be" when I grow up, I just need help getting there.

I know for a fact that I have always wanted to help people. All of my career tests have said that the top 3 professions for me were 1. counselor 2. fitness instructor 3. teacher. All three I would love to do, and really never knew what to do to incorporate all 3 until now. So I have my goals all set right? Now I just need to get rid of all the bull, negative people and thoughts, and get my butt in gear. I can do this, right? Right! If I can get fit, stick with it, and become a beachbody coach, then I can do anything!

So your probably thinking, why would I blog about something like this? Oh I don't know, I guess because I thought that there would be others out there like me that could relate and maybe that I could help, I guess I'm hoping for a great start to this great new venture, and would love to help anyone else that has a great new venture and needs someone to tell them.. "Way to go, you can do this, you go!"

Reboot day 8

I'm trying this from my iPad, so no picture :(
I hope my faithful crochet readers are trying this boot camp, it really is for everyone :)
Day 8:

Body: Prepare to sweat! Go all out and push yourself, you can do it!

Mind: Cook something new. Find a way to make your favorite dish healthier.

Life: Start a journal. Every day I write in my journal I feel so much better. I get everything out of my head that's bugging me, what a relief!

REBOOT Day 7

Sorry there has been such a lapse between days :( Life has gotten in the way of life lately. So here is day 7!

Body: Flow in slow mo. Do some yoga or a good stretch class.

Mind: Take a mental vacation. I love to lay in the sun and imagine I'm on a tropical beach.

Life: SPEAK UP! Letting things slide may end up really hurting you... Speaking from experience here!!

July 7, 2011

REBOOT Day 6





Sorry it's been a few days for boot camp. The holiday was very long and tiring for sure!
So here is day 6 of your boot camp, have you been doing the other 5 days?

BODY: Take things up a notch, give your workout everything you've got! I like how Chalene Johnson says to get mad about something and kill it during her turbofire hiit workouts.

MIND: Be kind to yourself, DO NOT self criticize today! I am so glad we are doing this one today, because this has been an ongoing thing for me lately.

LIFE: Take the initiative! Do something you've been afraid to do.

July 1, 2011

REBOOT Day 5


Whew! We are to day 5, and I am really learning a lot with this boot camp!

REBOOT Day 5:

Body... Start your day with exercise if it fits into your schedule. You will feel awesome all day long.

Mind... Rest your stress. Set a timer for 5 minutes and breath slowly, focus on each breath.

Life... Increase your eye contact with people, so that you project confidence.

Learn something from this post!

Please, Please, Please... Do NOT invade someones home and expect them all to change to your habits.. Your a guest in THEIR home. And always remember the old saying..
Company are like Fish, After 3 days they both start to stink!

My mother in law FINALLY just left today. She was here for three weeks and it was horrible.
She made fun of my son and myself when we did our workouts, and talked my husband out of continuing working out with me in the morning. This caused him to feel yucky again, back aches are back, head aches are back, you name it.
She made fun of what I ate and how often and just made life hell.

I learned a lot while she was here, no more visits for a really long time.  No more 3 week long visits, And I'm not going to let someone push me around and make it so my routine goes in the toilet!

This woman complains that she isn't loosing weight, but she's walking 2 miles almost every night. This is a typical day of what she ate...
Breakfast: A HUGE bowl of granola... And not the 1/3 of a cup serving size, more like 2 cups!
Lunch: "I just ate granola, so I'M not hungry (in other words you better not eat because I'M not hungry).
2pm snack: Crackerfulls, crackers filled with processed cheese and Fiddle Faddle
Dinner: very little, and "Do we have to eat veggies at EVERY meal?"
LATE NIGHT ICE CREAM.
I kept listening to Chalene Johnson... If you don't eat healthy every 2 to 3 hours you are going to be fat, you are going to gain weight! Your body is going to go into starvation mode!
A few nights we went without dinner because of late lunches (I didn't, I still ate something healthy every 2 to 3 hours with ridicule) and then she got all excited because we were having ice cream for dinner!
OMG!

So that's my vent for the day. I hope that you all learn something from this like I am. And I will NEVER pull a 3 week visit on MY son, EVER! Give your son in law or daughter in law the respect they deserve, and don't assume that they want you to come and stay with you for extended visits in a very small home.

REBOOT Day 4


Here is REBOOT Day 4....

Body: Evaluate your workout plan. How's it going? What can you do to make it better or fit your life.

Mind: Train yourself to focus on the positive. Say delete over and over every time you have negative thinking.

Life: Challenge your eating habits: Replace your afternoon junk food with a piece of fruit and low fat string cheese.

What are you thinking about REBOOT so far?

June 29, 2011

REBOOT Day 3


Day 3:
Body... If you still don't have a workout plan, find one! Once you get moving you will feel 100% better. Trust me, I know!

Mind... Shed that negative attitude! Start talking back to that inner brat and clear your mind!

Life... reconnect with yourself and your values, reach out to an old friend.

June 28, 2011

REBOOT Day 2

 DAY 2

How did you do with Day 1? If you need any help please let me know!

Mind... Skip the makeup (YIKES!) Get Acquainted with the unadorned you!

Life... Clean out your closet. Do your clothes reflect you or who you think people want you to be? BE YOU!

June 27, 2011

Hats for a little girl fighting cancer

Recently my Mom asked me if I could make a few hats for a little 2 year old girl that's fighting leukemia. Of course I said yes, yes, yes! So here are the hats I ended up making...
First is the berry hat from the book crocheted gifts...




I used the plymouth yarn superwash merino for this one, and love how soft it is and how it turned out. Super cute, and I've been asked to make more for other little and big girls :)

The next one is a bunny hat that I made out of the September/October 2009 Crochet Today....



I used some sport weight yarn that I had in my stash, not sure of company and such, but it was a really neat pink and white twist.

The next one is my total favorite, and it came out of the May/June 2011 Crochet Today!
I used a multi colored bamboo cotton yarn for the main hat, along with pink and brown bamboo cotton for the flower. This hat was so much fun to make I am going to make more for the other little girls in my life.

Sorry I have been missing in action lately. I made a huge life change and my hubby and I started eating right and working out. I have had some major transformations both in my body and my mind and that has made me think about what I want to be when I grow up, lol. So I've been working out finishing up some schooling, and also pursuing other avenues.  So click HERE to go to my team beacbody page where you can see some pictures of my body changing in just 3 months so far. It's also been awesome working out with my hubby, it's really brought us closer and closer!

Where is Spring??

We have been so cold here in Idaho, and the snow storm yesterday made me think that Spring is never going to get here! We have been fighting colds and flu constantly since November, and really need some sun and warm weather to kill all the yucky crud going around.

Yesterday was clean the craft room day, and once I was done I decided to maybe make some of the spring things that have been sitting there waiting for me.
I made this cute garland with a package of corrigated letters I picked up at Tuesday Mornings for .99 cents. I used my set of bic mark it's to decorate them, just coloring in the stripes in different spring colors. I also had bought some little spools of ribbon at hobby lobby for .50 cents and decided to only use it on a few of the letters. The clothes pins I bought at Michaels in the dollar section, and actually had all the letters attached to the rope, but they were way too heavy. so I decided to just use 3 of them and use them for the flowers. The rest of the flowers I attached with the glue gun. I actually used some little paper clip accents that I have had in with my brads for years to attach the letters.
Pretty fast, cheap & easy project.

CROCHET NEWS:
I'm taking a break from writing and selling patterns to work on some things for me and family members. I am finally working on a very simple afghan for my hubby and I. I have just started, and already can't wait until it's finished! I'm not sure if I just haven't found the right pattern or what, but it just isn't very much fun. So you might be seeing a post of trying a different pattern here soon.
