DIY: Aztec Print Dress


Believe it or not, I had this dress in mind when I started.  I wasn’t able to find the fabric appropriate for this dress, so as usual I kinda winded it.  This is what I came up with.  Beautiful Aztec print don’t you think?

Tips on Staying Motivated…And Other Helpful Information


I am going to assume you’re here for one of two main reasons: you follow my blog and have picked up that I post every Monday OR you are looking for ways to stay motivated.  I know this is outside the scope of this blog, however I’m going to share anyway.  This is something I have struggled with over the years, causing me to miss out on a lot of opportunities.  In the last year with Emerald Lily I have had my ups and downs with staying motivated.  I don’t even know if I should be posting this being that the struggle is still very real, but hey, I made a commitment to post weekly blogs and bi-weekly videos so here it goes.  lol  These are a few things that have helped me stay on track.

More Than This

So I post a lot of DIYs and recipes on this here blog every Monday with the occasional random in between posts, but I would also like to open it up to possibly more topics.  Maybe something to which you all could relate.  I don’t really have a scope in mind for this post other than to roll around ideas.  For this coming Monday I’ve got a recipe in mind, but I’m not totally sold on it.  For a while now I’ve been wanting to do a motivation blog, or possibly even a video.  I kinda feel like I’m no authority on the subject considering I haven’t been consistent with any of the techniques I would showcase.  Perhaps I should hold off on that.

Anywho, I guess what I really want to know is what would you all want to see from me?  Keep going with the DIYs and recipes? What DIYs and recipes? Or do you want more?  All these questions!  lol  I hope you have some answers for me.
