How to Organize Embroidery Floss Thread

Image
As part of my New Year's resolution to become more organized, I decided that I was going to find a way to prevent those huge balls of tangled embroidery floss. I went on to Amazon and purchased a few skeins of Embroidery FlossI ran out of, plus somebobbins and some other suppliesI was going to need for this project. First I bought a couple of packs of DMC embroidery floss bobbins in which I can wrap the floss around to prevent the tangled mess. They came in two different forms: plastic (28 pack) and cardboard (56 pack). Here are the links if you would like to purchase some for yourself.




To help make winding the embroidery floss on to each bobbin I used a bobbin winder.

To help me to identify what the color number of the embroidery floss was on each bobbin, I bought a pack of floss number stickers. If you are using the cardboard bobbins you can just write the color number in. However, with the plastic bobbins the ink smudges right off.




Finally, I bought the floss organizer to hold …

A Valentine's Day Poem From An Elementary School Student

Image
Hey Everyone, I can't believe that tomorrow is Valentine's Day already. I guess all these major snow storms we have been getting made time fly. Anyway, when I was in fifth grade, I wrote a poem called Love. It was an assignment for English to create a poem. I won a poetry contest in school for this poem. Since I have always received many positive comments about this poem I wanted to share it with my readers. I felt since Valentine's Day is not far, it would be an appropriate time to share it. 


What do you think? I would love to hear some feedback from my readers.
Happy Valentine's Day to all my fans!!!

The Significance Of Color In Our Everyday Life

Image
Did you know that each color has a specific meaning to it, as well as an emotion behind it? Most people do not realize this when choosing colors in our day to day lives.


For example, most of us probably don't think about what the color of our daily outfit communicates to others. We simply pick out something from our closet in the morning, making sure the colors match nicely, add some matching accessories (well if you are a woman), and out the door we go with out a second thought.

Today I want to give you a brief introduction into what I have learned about the meaning of color. Since there is so much information about this topic, I simply could not put it all into one post without boring you to death. lol! So here is a list with the meaning of each color:

Red - power, passion, energy, vitality, aggressive, assertive, lust, madness, luck, pain
Burgundy - sense of self worth, deserving, luxury
Orange - encouragement, motivation, creativity, competence, communication
Yellow - warning, alert…

“It doesn’t matter where you came from. All that matters is where you are going.”- Brian Tracy


Hey Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season. Now that the New Year is here, I decided it was time to set some new goals for myself. If you are like me, you most likely have tons of things you would like to do in your life (job, health, self improvement, etc.), and don't know where to start. Therefore, I decided I would post about some tips and tricks I use to help make my goals more attainable and realistic.




First I want to show you some really neat goal setting printables I found on the Buttoned Up® website. First there is a master goal sheet. I really liked this worksheet, as I was able to write down all the goals I wish to work on.
Then the second worksheet enabled me to break down each individual goal by tasks.
If you would like to download a copy of these goal worksheets visit the Buttoned Up ® website here for the master goal worksheet and here for the goal list workshe…
