New year fitness roundup

I can’t believe we are almost at the beginning of a New Year!!  2016 was a year of great blessings and good times as well as some hard times.  But I am excited to look ahead to 2017!  One thing that I have always been interested in is health and fitness.  I am grateful for the gift of health, and want to be a good steward of what I have been given!

I would like to share some resources that I have found. Maybe they  will be of value to you as well.

One way I want to be a good steward is by taking Crystal Paine’s 15-days to a healthier you course.

“In 15 Days to a Healthier You, we’re going to cover aspects of health that people really don’t connect with their overall well-being, like how to set (and meet!) important goals, what self-care really is (and what it isn’t), loving your life, and so much more. Day-by-day we will redefine self-care and give you the tools you need to boost and maintain your health — permanently.”

I got a sneak peek at the study guide and I am excited to get started!  There will be daily tasks, a facebook group with live videos. ( they will be recorded if you can’t join when they are live!)

So if you are looking to steward your health as well, 15 Days to a Healthier You is a great place to start!  I’d love to have you join me!  Fun.
But this course is only available until Jan. 3rd!  So don’t miss it!

Here are some other great courses I have taken from Crystal!  They have helped me set new goals for the year and set some good  daily schedules!  A bonus, they are VERY affordable!

I am excited to check out the 14 day FREE trial from Noom.  You use on-line coaching and apps to make and build healthy lifestyle changes.

Lose Weight for Good with Noom, try it free!

And wouldn’t it be fun to get a box in the mail each month filled with healthy snacks and products to try?

Here’s to a healthy and fit 2017!

Tea Time!

Teatulia Organic Tea

Bread and water can so easily be toast and tea!  – author unknown

Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company. – author unknown



I LOVE tea! Especially when the weather is cold. I love to make a pot of tea first thing in the morning. Such a slowing, calming routine. A good cup of tea really doesn’t take that long to make, but it can’t be rushed!

For my 50th birthday, everyone at my party brought me tea. Perfect! I have been enjoying my tea and the blessing of friendship as I sip. I just used the last of my Chamomile tea from Teatulia Organic Teas!  It was delicious!  So of course I had to check them  out.  Because the tea is organic, I was expecting higher prices. I was impressed with the selection and the prices!  And there are some great sales going on and coming up!

So if you are a tea drinker, enjoy!  If you aren’t, try it, you may like it!

Bring Holiday warmth with the delicious taste of Teatulia’s organic tea! Enjoy 25% Oolong Tea through November!

And a Black Friday Special
Black Friday Sale 30% Off Site Wide! Use Code BLACK30.

Life is like a cup of tea, it’s all in how you make it.

Make it a great day!

Tiny Prints card making experience

Last weekend was card creation weekend for me! With the great sale Tiny Prints is offering, I went to their site to create a card. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from! Picking one is the hard part. Design was easy & fast. Choose your photos and simply add them. I chose a flat 5X7 card. I love that you can also design the back of your card as well. Tiny Prints offers several designs that allow you to add more photos and text.

Christmas cards!!

This may be the year I get my cards done before Thanksgiving!!  Always a first time for everything!  This past weekend I was playing with creating a card.  I used a few different sites.

First I designed at FOREVER Since most everything is on sale this month I started there! There will be no crazy black Friday sales, so you have time to make memories with your family! Create meaningful gifts all month and just make sure you order by the end of November using code NOV2016 to get all the discounts!


I used Forever projects to create a card. Right now the only option to create on-line is a 5X7 size. When you go onto the site, you do need to create a FREE account to get started.  You  create an album of the photos you want to use on your card and then you are ready to create!  There are some options to change the layout and background of your cards.  You get to design the front and back of the card!  It was fun and easy to do. With the discount, this is a great deal!

But I enjoy having total flexibility, so I ended up creating most of my cards on Artisan ! The software that I love and would recommend to anyone! Very easy to use! I have been an ambassador for this software from the time it was released.


In the next few days I will share some specials (and my experience) from some other companies!

Celebrating Memories!!
