The Time Has Come...

It's official! My new Blog is up and running. Simply, Sara Jean. Its a little daintier, a "bit" more organized, posting will be much more regular, I have a schedule! Right now it's fresh and clean and shiny, which is just what I need in my life this Spring. Anyone else feel that way? I want to do SO much, that getting organized is going to help me accomplish all my fun and neat goals. So, I guess farewell! There will be a permanent link to my New Blog there on the right as well as one back to here from there... Does that make sense? I feel like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

I love being home!!! I just can't say it enough. I wish I could stay home longer. I don't want it to be Wednesday already!

So far I've made five journals while home! Here's a sneak peek.

Simply

Some new pages in my
Journal. And a sneak peek of what's to come...

Vacation!!!

I have been ΓΌber stressed lately. I wasn't even sure I would make it day job in tacked these last few weeks. But I'm so happy to announce that as of today I am on an eight day vacation!!!

I'll just be staying home. This is my last week of school of the semester. So I have a paper or two to finish. But mostly I will be relaxing! Recoperating! And crafting. Oh, And going to the Zoo.

I have a goal. To make a journal a day!!! That should mean I'll hopefully have seven or eight journals ready for my shop in a week.

I have LOTS of ideas. I want them to be personalize-able and customizable. I've got a few themes I want to focus on. Spring. Love. Fall. Travel. Vintage. Nature. Maybe a Hunger Games and Twilight themed?! Who knows. I am just so excited to take this time and use it how I always want to. Creating fun and pretty things to share with others.

So. Hopefully by next week I'll be transitioning to the new, more organized and accessible Blog. I just need to start a fresh. Body, mind , soul and so on. So that's what ima gonna do! Cheers for Spring Time!!!

Twilight

Mothers Day Gifts!!!

So this exchange was with one person as it was a gift exchange and not a card exchange but I'm sending two because one Twilighter didn't sign up
in time so I offered to exchange with her. Which is so much fun. I absolutely love making these personalized gifts!!! Here are the two personalized Twilight Themed Journals I made.

Spring Cleaning!

So I thought I would add another item to my Spring Cleaning List. I've already started with my home, Blog, Etsy Shop... So now I have added my body to the list as well!!! I think at least a portion of my recent emotional turmoil caused by a ginormous amount of stress can be attributed to my recent very poor diet, lack of exercise and consumption of (as one of my Lit professors would say) adult beverages. So today, this very morning I am starting a Juice Fast! Or Feast as some like to say.

I've never attempted one but I am excited! Today i'll be starting with purchased 100% juice the likes of Naked and Odwalla but I hope in the next few days to procure a juicer so I can make it fresh at home. I will also be drinking one or two protein shakes and am allowing myself egg white veggie omelets if I have a melt down and need to chew something.

I haven't set myself a time frame for how long i'd like to keep this up. I just want to re set my body back to a healthy starting point and go from there. I hope for at least five to seven days but I'm going to take this one day at a time. Wish me Luck!!! I'm gonna need it... Cheers!

Slowly But Surely

I'm getting things together for the New ish Blog and shop opening!!! I say New ish because since I'm not an HTML expert my design layout is still mostly me using a Blogger Template and changing everything it allows. Which actually is quite a bit!!! I was considering moving over to Wordpress but even they're most " customizable" template is in my opinion the EXACT opposite. I couldn't even change the font!!!!! And this girl needs font control. Lol. So I'm staying here at blogger but starting afresh.

As for my shop I have so much lovely paper that I am making into journals! Sigh, I love paper. I know it's strange but really I do! It makes me happy. And smiley. Anywho! Lots more to do in the next few days! Cheers!!!
