Snow Day Sweater Projects

January always has a few surprises up her sleeve; especially, snow days.  For a single day you get to hang out at home with no responsibilities, other than enjoying the warmth of your own house.  After that relaxing hour or so what are you going to do?
We decided to pull together 5 projects that are perfect for a snow day.  All you need are those old sweaters that nobody wears anymore.  You can even stockpile a few thrift store sweaters just for this occasion.  Grab your favorite hot drink and get crafty.

Get Moving

The New Year is just beginning and if you haven’t hopped on your Resolution list it can feel like you’re already behind.  You’re not!  Take the rest of this month to get up and get moving.

One of my own New Year’s Resolutions was to get healthy.  Like many American women with the stress of a job, school, and life my weight has been slowly tipping the scale.   This is one of the hardest resolutions to maintain.  I can’t tell you how many years I have written it down only to ignore it as soon as a sweet treat came into my life.  If you’re like me and you absolutely love junk food, television, and curling up on your couch then this is our rallying cry:  Get Moving! 

Here are 5 steps that will get all of us back on track.
