I have really been slacking when it comes to blogging. I blame it on this cold that won't let go. People around here have already had it and say it lasts for 3 weeks. Yippee, just 2 1/2 more weeks to go! Or not. In fact, I think I'm going to kick its butt long before then. Just you wait and see. My methods: raw honey, raw garlic, eucalyptus radiata and tea tree in the humidifierier, plain yogurt sweetened with raw honey, and no coffee. Mostly no coffee because it didn't even taste good but I suppose that is probably a good thing to avoid when you have a cold. Yes, no, maybe? I actually just started raw garlic yesterday but I honestly feel better today. At least the sinus pressure is gone.


Anyways! I finally finished the belt I was working on. I was really struggling with this one for some reason, it took me 3 or 4 tries just to sew the d-rings on. I love it. I wish I was more disciplined and maybe Adrian could have a super sweet belt instead of having to list them all on Circle Boutique!


That was my last set of d-rings so I'm not even starting another belt until my next order arrives. Which doesn't make any sense by the way because the d-rings are the very last step. I just like to have everything in my hands so when I'm done I can photograph it and list it right away.

Shoot, I showed you this belt so now I have to make something else by Friday! Oh wait, that was the whole reason I started that feature...;) Not that I don't have projects to get done!

Cute belt! Just wondering if you just eat the raw garlic?!? Someone recommended that to me one time and it was horrible! Hard to chew/swallow, because it burned so bad and then I had strong horrible garlic breath for a week! Ick!

I keep forgetting to tell you about the Restyle Challenge over at A Beautiful Mess. I thought you might be interested!

It's free to join. You have to post a before and after picture of whatever you re-do/upcycle and add it to the flickr account each week. They're doing a project a week for 2011.

I've been thinking about it... I'm trying to get everything cleaned up in the loft right now so we'll see! I think it'd be a great way to stay motivated and doing stuff this year, as I'd planned.

Oh, forgot to add... it has to be something vintage or second-hand that you re-do.

Thanks Jen, I'll be sure to check that out!
Heather, don't chew it! Yuck! I cut the clove into chunks small enough to swallow like a pill. That's still kind of hard because if you swallow it the wrong way it feels like it's slicing your throat! Jeff chewed his the other day before realizing that I had actually just swallowed mine. It sure burns otherwise!

I chewed the garlic clove one time too.....it was HORRID!! I haven't tried it since! But I'm thinking I should give another try now and swallow it. Are you suppose to smash it a little though?

Heather said...

Haha thanks Heidi...I'm sure that would help a bit ;]

Amanda, I don't smash it. Just swallow it as quickly and easily as possible!
