Bad Day Therapy

Yesterday was a very bad day, one of those peek out from under the covers scowling at the alarm clock days. So pretty much anything happening after that was doomed.
So I took a bath in my "bath tub" aka the foot soaker hehe. Today I decided to find some great places to stay, places to get away and relax.

This is a bed and breakfast in Spicer, MN by Green Lake. Has a lovely cozy feel to it with my favorite, a claw foot bath tub Amy's Room at the Spicer Castle The castle also has great little extras like a Four course Breakfast, Afternoon tea, Dinner cruise packages and a Murder Mystery dinner. LOOVE!

An all-inclusive Mexico The Reed Playacar

My Weekly Resolutions

I have so much I want to do that I think I overwhelm myself and ignore it all. So I figured a little weekly to do is so much better than a list of ickies 3 pages long. :)

Make my apartment feel cozy and relaxing
Keep on my budget (I have all sorts of funs to save up for)
Put 2 things on EBay
Finish 2 pillows with fun fabric I got earlier last week
Eat super healthy
Bring a cute happy mug to work
Figure out what plants to grow for Spring

Dedicated to my new laptop

Laptop Cozy

Here’s what you’ll need:
-3/4 yard each of two colors of felt
-3/4 yard double sided fusible interfacing, such as This
-1 package round sticky Velcro dots

1. Place laptop in center of one piece of felt. Cut out corners to create a cross shape, with the laptop in the center. Trim down the flaps so they overlap by 1-2″ when folded over.

2. Place cut piece on top of other felt piece and use it as a template to cut out the same shape.

3. Cut out Stitch-Witchery in same shape.

4. Create a sandwich with the two colors of felt, with the Stitch-Witchery in the middle. Press with a hot iron until fused.

5. Even up the edges all the way around by cutting off any excess with scissors.

6. Place laptop in center of cross and fold over flaps. Adhere sticky dots where edges overlap.

7. There are lots of different ways to customize the cozy by cutting fun shapes out of the outer piece of felt. We decided to keep it super simple and just cut a scallop shape along the edge of the outer fold.

My friend Anna who is constantly "hinting" to pursue my dreams (Fashion design books for Christmas, MSN design contest links and as I write this she is sending me Fashion design blogs from a magazine)
And last but not least, my dear Jordan. My first sewing machine and the constant encouragement!

Goodies time :) My favorite sites I cannot live without
