A couple weeks ago OnlineFabricStore.net held a mini contest on Instagram for a “wicked good fabric” t-shirt. Lucky for me I was chosen as one of the winners! About a week later I received my package and in it was the t-shirt AND a reuable shopping bag, some beautiful quatrefoil fabric and a package of flowering seeds. Of course, me being me, I couldn’t just let the shirt be. I found some cute fabric (on sale even) and decided to make my first cut t-shirt. This will be part 1 in a series with how I decorate my flower pot and what I do with my fabric being parts 2 and 3.
A super awesome person had a birthday
a month ago and for it I told her to pick a color. She chose purple, and this is what I came up with. I thought it would make an awesome centerpiece for for a wedding and it’s especially handy since the flowers and the wrap can be removed.
I LOVE cardigans. All you have to do to wear them year round is change the shirt with which you wear it.

I made egg rolls for the first time a few weeks ago and they turned out AMAZING. However, I will have to find a new sauce with which to eat them because sweet and sour sauce just has too much salt (I’ve been cutting out processed food and I can taste the salt in SO MANY things now). Since I had a package of egg roll wraps left over I decided to do something else with them and came up with this. They make the perfect appetizer.
I’ve got a new video on YouTube! This is my favorite skirt yet! Something new I’m trying is that on the Mondays I post a video, there will be a blog post talking more about the video. Inspiration, creative process, what was going on in my head, etc. Maybe I can even post some bloopers. Gotta laugh at yourself right? The regular DIY/tutorial posts will be back next week and the weeks where I don’t make a video.
What’s up next week? Come back and see.
A little while ago I decided to play around with cupcakes and this is what happened. Warning: this may or may not be pretty. lol
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.
