Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! It's finally starting to feel like summer around here and I am getting so excited for all of the summer festivities - barbecues, bonfires, the beach and more!! Here are some of my favorite from this week:

1. A few months ago, I mentioned that I started adding Collagen to my Smoothies and lately I've able to notice the impacts it's having! I especially notice the impact in my nails - they are crazy strong! I was talking to a friend recently about collagen and she was so intrigued! She suggested I do a blog post to talk about how and why I use it! So, I have that planned for next week and I am so excited to share one of my new favorite finds!

2. Yesterday, I experienced my first major blog fail - I deleted a whole bunch of pictures (3 recipes worth!) before they successfully uploaded to my Google Drive - boo! So I had my next couple of weeks in blog world planned out and that got turned upside down :( Definitely not a favorite of mine from this week! I've been trying really hard to remember all of the things I love so much about blogging to help me overlook this minor setback!

3. I started to do a little planning for Christmas this week. I do realize that I am 6 months early, but I can procrastinate like no other and I know that if I put these crafts off until November I just won't get them done! I love the pillow in the top picture and the countdown sign in the second picture. I've started to shop around to find the materials and I'm hoping to get started on these by the end of the month! Christmas crafting is a favorite of mine any time of year!

4. I've been doing some fun crafts with my cricut lately! I've been working on t-shirts using iron vinyl and I am looking forward to sharing my creations soon! When I am crafting with my cricut (or any other crafts really) I love going to Michael's! It's my favorite craft store! I love that I can pick up t-shirts there for five dollars - they have a great selection and the price is right!

5. Canada is turning 150 on July 1st and I am getting excited for the festivities! I always love celebrating Canada Day - my family typically picnics at a local park where they put up some fun outdoor activities. I can't wait to see what fun is put together to celebrate Canada's big birthday!!

  1. I have deleted pictures before I let them upload to the cloud. Done that before. All that work making those recipes and poof. Well, could be worse I guess. Have a great weekend!
