Give Yourself the Gift of a Healthy Lifestyle: Tips for Busy People
Sometimes, when we resolve to make health and lifestyle improvements, we become obsessed with major investments of money and time when all we really need to do is gift ourselves with small, cost-conscious items and changes that keep us on the path to good health. The important thing is to make consistent, daily efforts, because focusing on goals that are too big and hard to accomplish in one great leap can become frustrating and set you up for failure. Instead, incorporate smaller, incremental changes that fit easily within your daily routine.
Do you ever need a quick crafting idea? Do you live with younger children? If you answered yes to both then I’ve got your solution! An idea is finding a drawing or doodles they’ve made and sewing a real-life version. My little sister made a drawing of a bunny holding a carrot and I used felt and colored thread to recreate it. You will need basic sewing experience.
First, I traced the original shape of the doodle into the white felt. That’s because the bunny is white in her drawing. Then I cut it out and made an extra for the other side. Then I embroidered one felt piece with colored thread. I placed the decorated piece of felt on top of the second piece of felt (designs on the inside) and sewed around it partially, flipped it inside out, and stuffed it before stitching it back up. It is a really creative and personal present that is bound to cause smiles.

Last Valentine’s Day, my little sister made me a paper butterfly and went to the store with my mom to get me a stuffed fox that says ‘be mine’. She remembers that I’ve always wanted to have a pet fox as a little kid and knew it was the perfect gift for me. She spoiled me with Valentine’s Day presents!
As you can see, for the butterfly my little sister used paper wings, a clothing pin, pipe cleaners, glitter glue, and sparkly heart accents.
She also made a kissing fish out of paper hearts and a googly eye. She gets her craftiness from me.
And what Valentine’s Day would be complete without chocolate (mustaches)? The mustache made me do it! :3
Sometimes having a little sister is like having a tiny doll. In other words, I can put on her makeup so I gave us little heart shapes near our eyes to be festive. I love the fact that I have such a cute and considerate little sister. I’d do anything for my tiny Valentine.
