Fabric Filter Mask (with nose piece and T-shirt ties)

If I can do this, YOU CAN TOO! I am a big believer in DIY and use what you already have before buying more. I wanted to create a face mask with resources that I already have, instead of going out to buy more. As well as, creating a nose sleeve/piece where a paper clip…

Seize the Day! Daily Planner PDF

So during this isolation, it has been VERY easy for hours to pass by with not getting anything that was truly productive done. Sooooo, with that being said, I put together a Seize the Day!

Popiscle Stick Work-Out

I was looking for new ideas for quick workouts that would change up my routine and are feasible to squeeze into my day = no excuses. Most of these exercises  do not include weights, again, no excuses LOL. I just used a mason jar, sharpie, and a tin can (for my “done/finished” pile). I found…
