It's the little things: I had to buy new jeans today because my other ones are too big. It takes me FOREVER (read: years) to lose baby weight, but thanks to #nowhitesugarnowhiteflour & a supportive Facebook group with @carriewaggott (and probably my bout of bronchitis, ha!), I'm starting to feel really great already! // Necklace from @bellasboudoirjewelry, jeans from @winners. #winnersfabfind

thediymommy : @mcguiremummy Yes, it !makes a big difference for me! I still do eat syrup, honey and brown sugar though so it's not so bad. I love cookies too, so I make oatmeal cookies with whole wheat flour and all brown sugar!

To refresh my faux fur pillows after washing them, I sneak one of my daughter's doll brushes and give the pillows a good brushing! It sounds kind of crazy, but it totally works. Now they're ready for this year's Holiday snuggling! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ #DIY #fireplace #iamsocozyrightnow

sarahdawnw : You can just wash the sheepskins?!
hearthstonelogcabin : Great idea!
thediymommy : @sarahdawnw I do! In cold, then hang to dry.
thediymommy : @hearthstonelogcabin Thanks!
sarahdawnw : Oh my goodness. My 2 year olds has NEVER been washed and it's sssoooo matted. I'm so doing this.
vickipyle : I shampoo and brush somewhat regularly....the washing process is unfun....i sometimes dry shampoo them though with baking soda and a light spritz of water then brush the grit out.
adoringnerd : Thanks for sharing I'll have to try this:)
blogpodium : Smart!

THIS side of the kitchen is clean-ish. Let's crop out the other side and resume cleaning after everyone (hopefully!) naps. πŸ‘ #ourdiyhouse #kitchen #vintageindustrial #EAT

So, I'm totally adducted to making downloadable art with letters, numbers and #vintage/industrial elements. I'm starting to think about adding some #Christmas art to my Etsy shop! What would you like to see? I'm thinking chalkboard signs with carol excerpts, art with maps or rustic illustrations, maybe even some printable garlands! #prairiepix #artwork

Tagged by the incredible @funfiestas_byili to share #widn: I'm trying to rest as much as a mom of 3 littles can to beat this bronchitis. I'm enjoying my afternoon latte as they nap, and I have a deep urge to take up #knitting again this Fall just so I can #DIY a big squishy blanket with this new @knit_picks yarn! #drool #succulentphotobomb #COFFEE Care to share what you're up to @therusticorange, @the36thavenue and @thebusybudgetingmama?

thediymommy : @nicolepylatiuk It's so rare and so nice! I'm thinking maybe crochet would be a more realistic (quicker) craft to take up again. 😁
thediymommy : @thebusybudgetingmama Ha! It's impossible to stop analyzing when you're a graphic designer. πŸ˜†
tamschro : Love my cozy yarns in winter! My favourite post-kiddo bedtime activity is crocheting. Want to learn to knit though!
sophiefair1 : Winter knitting is awesome :) (Well, all knitting is awesome, but winter is particularly cosy!) When I finish the sweaters on my needles right now, I think a big blanket might be a necessity for our first Alberta winter. What colour are you thinking about?
brandy85lee : Man oh man! Can't wait to get to the city. Need to get some yarn so I can start crocheting again!
christywellsphotography : I want that yarn too! The minute j got that flyer I started planning something cozy!
funfiestas_byili : Ooh I've always wanted to learn how to knit. Maybe ill give it a shot this winter. I hope a little rest does you good and get well soon. Thanks for playing! Ps. Awesome shot! At a quick glance i thought the succulent and latte were in the magazine too!
toaprettylife : I've been knitting like a madwoman lately. I did a big squishy blanket in the spring (but that was crochet...either way, it's worth it!) Now I'm attempting my first sweater-like object. With miles of stockinette. I hope you're feeling better soon!
