Thanks to the lovely Lucy @keepingknitreel for the tag - go check out her recent post on what she making 👌🏻 So been a productive day setting up some of my listings and tackling the technology 🤣 been wrapping frames and mocking some bits up so I thought I’d share my glorious new scissors that I got for Xmas from @warm_crochet as my #widn as I’m cutting off ends!
I grabbed a little shot of them whilst I trimmed the ends off this beautiful granny square heart I worked up for the baby boy crochet heart box frames 💙💙 Aren’t they just sooo pretty!
Back to the roots. Zu damals, als Instagram noch schön war. Sagt @frau_brummkreisel ...äh...meinst du die Zeit, als uns täglich drei Milliarden Shoutouts entgegengeballert wurden??? „Die süße #schlagmichtotkeineAhnungwiedieganzenSüßenhießen hat ein supitolles Profil. Geht mal gucken. Dass sie mich auch empfiehlt, ist wirklich nur gaaaanz reiner Zufall.“
Oder meinst du die Zeit, in der man 5x täglich für ein #widn nominiert wurde? #whatImdoingknow Ich hab mich damals totgegoogelt, bis ich endlich wusste, was das überhaupt heißt! Und bin so oft nach meinem #widn gefragt worden, dass ich irgendwann jedes Mal antworten konnte: „Ich beantworte gerade siebzehn WIDN von 2014/15 UND 16! Zu was anderem hab ich gar keine Zeit mehr, Herrschaftszeiten!“
Und jetzt soll ich #5factsaboutme nennen, weil wegen Insta-Nostalgie und so. 🙄 Danke, Jennifer!
1. ich schaffe es nicht, meine Knie vernünftig zu rasieren #knubbeligeScheißerchen
2. mindestens 5x täglich verliere ich mein Handy.
3. mein Auto hat knapp 300 PS, ist tiefer gelegt und so knüppelhart, dass meine Schwester sich als Beifahrerin bei dem Gehoppel immer einen Sport-BH wünscht. Zudem hat er fette Pellen drauf und vier brüllende Endrohre drunter #imNiveauflexibel Mein Bruder @sure_on_the_wall und ich glauben ja immer, dass wir vom Postboten abstammen. Aber hey, wir hatten wenigstens den gleichen Postboten, denn mein Bruder fährt das gleiche Kaliber wie ich. #wirsinddieCoolstenwennwircruisenwennwirdurchdieCitydüsen#jaichweiß#andereLeutesindinunseremAltererwachsen
4. ich hasse Baden, bekomme aber ständig von meinen Followern Badezusätze geschickt. Dann freue ich mich, gehe in die Wanne und eskaliere trotzdem nach drei Minuten. Da drin ist es nämlich warm! Und nass. Und langweilig!
5. ich liebe das Landleben. Vor allem die Rinder. In medium rare.
@luzimaus @konfettiimherz @little_loveling @koe.se @_papapi_ @randa_and_the_gang @bunterkundegimborly the Stage is yours! ❤️#sorrysolcheVerlinkungenstandenbeimirimKleingedrucktenalsesumFreundschaftging 😬😂
Thanks for #widn still on nursing duties for Lily and Lee ; Holly and Abigail returned to School today . I’m really exhausted just haven’t been sleeping well which is very unlike me . But at least I’ve escaped the flu (touched wood quickly ) Abigail and I took Humphrey out for a long walk , she wore her new head torch , which is just brilliant!!! She proceeded to tell me a boy drew on her work today ; so she circled it and said this was done by Thomas 😀 with an arrow pointing !! We did laugh 😂😂. Bought some new pj’s from Sainsbury’s which I’m wearing ; there so comfy highly recommend 🙌🏻 and I’m about to do some work, as I’m seriously chasing my tail ........ #myday#seemslikealongday#nurseduties#family#widn#selfie#pjs would @anna_pixiemoo & @shirleyjan_777 like to share their day 😘 xxxx
#widn this is for the #neonatalunit for #prematurebabies a little project the ladies at my local @greenstreetcrochetclub like to keep going. Wool from the club itself and my first go at a #c2ccrochet#blanket not quite sold on the colours but it definitely looks better in real life than in the photo. The colours are really hard to capture and i lack photography skills.
It’s no secret that we love ALL the Thieves, ALL the time, but it gets even more use during the chilly seasons for immune support, overall wellness, and cleaning all the things, because germs. Plus it smells like Fall. #sobasic#butsogood
ANYWAY, I saw something awhile ago about using Thieves household cleaner to give your jewelry extra shine and decided to put it to the test. 💍 I can’t remember the last time I got my ring cleaned and it was looking a little rough, so I dropped it in the dish for about 20 minutes and I’m happy to report this thing is looking brand new!! 💃🏼
@tbunnybuttons has tagged moi in #widn and I’m working on this piece which proving to be a pain to get right, but this is what I love about doing illustration - getting things right! I tag the following peeps to do the same in #widn - @chris_askham @grandpabutton @nerdhavenradio #Art#wip#digitalart#digitalartist#illustration#photoshop
Thanks for the tag @theyorkiebarkid. I’ve had a pretty chilled day today, as I’ve been on leave so just caught up with things around the house. Now I’m putting my feet up with a large glass of something cold and this lovely candle which was a gift from @kitchen_suppers. It smells divine. Would @hellyjen like to tell us what’s she been up to? #widn
Thank you to @doodlejac and @sh4ron19 for the #widn tags.
I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to respond...But I have been busy you know...taking black and white photos and doing colour charts!! Hehehe, nah...I honestly forgot till I saw @stealmystyle40 and her #widn 😂😂😂 loving the T-shirts Abi...I need a 1973 please. 😘
So, what am I doing now? Well, it's been a busy day but very run of the mill kinda day, I was in the office 9.30 til 2.30 (I'd say work but I did very little 🤣) then after the school run I decided to take the car to the garage, (it's new you know!) as a warning sign came on yesterday and I didn't know what it was for (the manual wasn't very helpful) so I thought I'd best check it out..anyways It's fine..its supposed to be there
On the way back I did a quick 'things I missed' supermarket shop, cooked the lads tea, went out round the neighbours collecting my Avon brochures and submitted my orders.
And breath...Now I'm gonna sit down whilst Paul puts Tom to bed and then we can have our tea (and a glass of wine). The end to my day will be in about an hour when I'll sort Will and Dan out with their supper then I'll slump in front of the tv...Silent Witness tonight init
Ohh and the picture...well I'm snacking on these little fellas cos I'm starving and I thought the little pop's of red will brighten up my Instagram 2018 year in colours!!
@helenlucie and @karenmason78 care to share what you've been upto today? Only if you want to of course 😘
FAUXPOTLE FOREVAAA •
Just thinking back on my freshman year in college when I was addicted to chipotle... I would go almost every week and eat until my stomach hurt. Not very sure what I was doing with my life but let’s fast forward 3 years and here we are. I’m making my own bowls! I boiled and shredded chicken tenderloins and marinated them in mojo for 2 days. Threw it in the pan with a little olive oil to warm it up and get it a little crispy. It was to die for. Threw it in a bowl with lettuce, brown rice, avo with lime and garlic, Greek yogi and cilantro. I have @fitgirlsguide to thank for this drastic transformation. All the love to the mothership💕
Thank you for the #widn tag @1a.theoldchapel not house related but I’m getting ready to bath little miss! 🛀 hope you enjoy your slow cooker, I love mine! What’s everyone else up to? @houseofbakerr @life_on_primrose_lane @forth_bridge_house #battime#baby @shnuggle @burtsbeesuk @waterwipes @kokoso_baby @johnsonsbabyuk #burtsbees#burtsbeesdiaperointment#kokoso#waterwipes
The lovely Stephanie @crazy_yarny_life asked me #widn - thank you so much for thinking of me 💕 At the time I was working away on my v-stitch blanket and I will be carrying on with it this evening too! Would @kal20m @hookerry_crochet and @andintothetrees like to play? No pressure 😘
It’s Team Energy Makeover’s last day of our #SugarFree7 Challenge. That’s right, 7 days, with no sweeteners of any kind (fruit being the only exception). // I’m pretty sure that they all thought that they were going to go 🍌 bananas 🍌 (well at least for the first 3 days). But then something happened...something shifted...all of a sudden, without the sugar in their system... quite a few peeps were no longer craving sugar!! SORCERY!!! ***Not actual sorcery (pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and yeast, such as Candida, feed off sugar. The more sugar you eat, the more inviting you make your gut for these “bad guys.” Also, when you boost your serotonin (aka the "happiness hormone” (which we’re raising on TeamEnergyMakeover through diet, exercise, and a regular sleep schedule)), you are less likely to have cravings for sweets. So yeah...not actual sorcery 🧙🏼♀️. // So, to celebrate, here is one of our (#noaddedsugar ) Paleo banana nut muffins! Enjoy, you sweet thang! 🍌🍌 INGREDIENTS: * 4 medium (soft) bananas * 2 cups of almond flour * 6 medium eggs * 2 Tbsp of coconut oil * 2 tsp vanilla extract * 2 teaspoons baking powder * 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt * 1/2 cup of crushed pecans 🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌🍌
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large size muffin tin with parchment paper muffin liners.
2. Combine all of the ingredients (except the pecans) in a high powered blender (I like the vitamix). Stir in the pecans before putting the batter into muffin tins!
3. Scoop the batter into each muffin tin. Fill the muffin tin until the batter comes just under the top surface.
4. Bake on 350F for 40 minutes until golden on top.
Hello & Happy Monday! A fresh start to the week! We’re about to run out for some errands and I had to stop and take a quick pic of my #momuniform . 😉 Not sure who’s more of a ham, this baby of mine or his mama! 😳😂 Either way...this was the first LLR outfit I purchased. A year and a half later and I still love it! What was your first LuLaRoe piece?
LIVE Show with Awesome Outfits Tomorrow(Tuesday)@ 7:30pm MST!
Thanks so much @jamie_at_no_four for my #widn tag. After a long day at work, nothing beats making a cuppa☕️ and sitting down to catch up on #realhousewivesofoc . What are you up to @pauls_home @foxyadams2017 @angiehappyhome @pauls_home @behind_the_door_at_86_
My lovely insta-friend @mrssquiggle16 has tagged me for #widn . Like her, I've been crocheting (of course), but now I'm going to lose myself in Flow magazine for a while. My mum bought it for me, and it's quite the loveliest magazine I've ever come across.
My hand is feeling better from the burn so naturally I've decided to start a new project 😄 knitting with 4.5mm needles I'm going to start a mitred square blanket. I tried this last year and I think I made the squares too small so got de-motivated with all the sewing up! Let's see how this one goes!
What are you guys up to this week @busybutterflymakes @sawilliams124 @fiberfever if you want to join in x
#widn 🏡🍴I have just prepped my first ever slow cooked meal! Hoping it will cook nicely whilst I'm out at work tomorrow 😬🥘 • what are you up to? @hollys_little_kent_home @__tobuildahome @mayshome_xx @lifeatnumber.24 😘🏡
Thanks for the #WIDN tag @theonebespoke. I need to build an extension so that I have an extra wall to put one of those shutters on 😍 I literally just had a mad glance at every wall I own but it appears I have filled them all 😐 we are just cooking a butter chicken curry for dinner, the pan with the curry in it is right next to this jug of tulips but it wasn't instagram worthy, so you'll just have to imagine it bubbling away 😂 what are you up to? @fionashome @for.the.love.of.greige @rebeccaharrisdesigns xx
I kinda disappeared this weekend but it was so worth it! I am moving back into my office babayyyyy!!! Although it was fun for everyone to have Grandma here for a while, it is also fun for me to get back into my creative space where I can cut out all the distractions of the house/world ✨ Since I intended on squeezing my yoga fix in before bed last night to complete week 2 of my program and fell asleep on the couch instead, I'm playing catch up again with workouts... At least I can get all bendy in my office now 😍 ***I'll be replying to all of you babes in my inbox as soon as I stretch out these sore furniture moving muscles 💌💌💌 .
Thanks for the #widn @the_bricks_that_make_our_home It’s nice coming home and getting cosy 🤗
I’m just abouts to hunt through my wardrobe for something respectable to wear for my visit to my new workplace in the morning.
What you lovely people up to?
Seit Wochen das erste Mal Tennistraining für den Großen 💪 Und der Zwerg darf am Schluss beim Bälleeinsammeln helfen 😂 Die U7a heute lief super, einzig der Schnuller beim Schlafen würde bemängelt. Aber da lächel ich nur drüber, nicke brav und sage artig ja , denke mir aber Alles zu seiner Zeit. Der Große hat seinen Schnuller mit 3,5 Jahren so derart unspektakulär easypeasy abgegeben, dass ich mir da gar keine Sorgen mache. Ansonsten wurde gewogen, gemessen, ein Sehtest gemacht, in die Ohren und in den Mund geschaut, abgetastet, die Vorhaut kontrolliert und ein bisschen "gequatscht". Der Zwerg war voll am Start und hat alles super mitgemacht. #u7a#lieblingsmensch#januar2015baby#oktober2010baby#lebenmitkindern#lebenmitkind#widn
• BIG BOY BEDDING •
Well we're trying Zachary with his first toddler quilt and pillow tonight! 🙈 hoping it makes a difference to his sleep.. And by that I mean I'm hoping it keeps him asleep and in his own bed 🙄
Waiting on a white and grey bedding set to arrive, as ALL the toddler bedding selection is AWFUL! This was the best we could get until the new set arrives 😩
So sad to have packed away the bumper, quiltlet and mobile 💔
Over 50 inches of the most beautiful turquoise discs that ombre from the lightest of sky blues to richest of earthy teals ♡♡♡ Come check her out in person this Wed, Jan 24, at @tinroseboutique in Fort Worth for our trunk show!
