Bit of this..

And a bit of that. :P
It's been a long time between posts for me! I've been busy/lazy something.
I have sort of lost my way a little bit but am feeling better and am back to my old self with some new changes. :)

I've embarked on a new fitness journey. I've been cutting back the wine and greatly reduced the amount of rubbish I eat. I am far from perfect with it, but am taking it slowly so that I don't binge eat or overindulge. I have also worked out every day for the last 12 days with one rest day last Sunday. My workouts are mostly dvds, varying from 20 minutes to 62. :) I am ridiculously proud of that.  I just have to cut back more on the wine and snacks because I am eating into my exercise calories and not losing weight. I am getting fitter but still need to lose weight. It will come I suppose.

I haven't been sewing much, but want to get back into it after we move (again) next weekend. Hopefully the last move for a long time. It means we will have to change schools which I am a bit worried about to be honest. For me, not the kids. I finally feel that I have great Mum friends at the school that I can talk to and have dinner with all the kids etc. I'm sure it will be fine.

Anyway, that's the latest news here. Catch you soon! xx

Projects/Makeovers #2

I am turning 30 this week. In a few short days actually. I am fine with this. In fact I'm kinda looking forward to it. Especially my party. I am having a big one! Inviting everyone and dancing the night away. I needed dancing shoes, so I looked on the internet, as you do.
And found these:
Gorgeous, right? And $80! Yeah, right. Where would I wear them after??
LOL Everywhere! But still, a bit pricey.
So I made some.
I took these

And made these using this tutorial

Awesome or what?

I've actually been crafting!
Not much, just a little. A bit of a revamp for a couple of things.
First, this dollhouse for my niece.

It's pretty big, as big as Pepper! And wasn't it hideous? Ugh. Why would you let your kids paint something like this?!?
Anyway, I sanded and repainted and now it looks like this:

Much nicer, right? Not bad for $30!!
