    Homemade Hand Warmers from the Heart

    One little project that adds a bit of warmth to my outings, is a cute set of homemade hand warmers. I simply plop them in the microwave for a minute or so, drop them in my coat pockets and soak up the heat on cold, blustery days. Their warmth doesn't last as long as commercial hand warmers, but you also don't have to shake them until your fingers go numb. Plus, they are all-natural, reusable and super stinkin' cute!

    Be(e) Mine Valentine

    Valentine's Day is just around the corner; and if you're looking for a bit of homemade inspiration, I hope you will take a quick peek at my latest card creation. I love hexagons, but it's always hard for me to see a group of them without thinking beehives and bees. Hence, the "Be(e) Mine" sentiment.

    Tasty (and WW-Friendly) Chicken Tortilla Soup

    Sometimes I just get a craving for something specific, and last week it just happened to be chicken tortilla soup. I suggested that the fam run to a local restaurant to satisfy my hunger, but after some research and facing a huge ding to my daily WW points I decided to go with the healthier homemade option instead.
