article for you to read :)


Just wanted to link to this article by cookie magazine. Thought it was a very nice read.

Lots more cleaning to do and need to finish a little girl's dress today (her birthday is Saturday!) I've decided to get back on schedule and be more productive starting next Monday. And this isn't just a New Year's resolution. It's a lifestyle change. It's about time I kick my life back into order. Sometimes I think it's just the fact that I'm in my twenties and life can just be plain ole depressing at times and un-motivational. But I've decided to put all the twenties-blas behind me and look to the future. There's so so so much I can be doing with my life and I've just got to get myself together and go DO it. This is the first step. Get up at a reasonable time, exercise three times a week, eat better, work without stopping every five to fifteen minutes, drink more water, drink more coffee (yes, you read that correctly), smile often and laugh even more.

Also in the next several months I'll be looking around for a couch to reupholster. I also have a 1950s chair that needs new cushions. Perhaps I will do a little section on how I go about recovering the couch and chair. I've never done it before, so it shall be an interesting experience. I'm excited!


  1. Hey, and once you learn how to cover a couch, you can come do our couch. It has a nice shape but needs recovered. :)

  2. Ha! And I thought your life was perfect, Anna! Good to know that there is someone else out there who wants to do things but just doesn't get around to it! You always seem to do the most fun and interesting things that I only dream of. ;) I'd be so excited to hear about your reupholstering. : ) Hope your new schedule works out for you!
