Sew In Control

I could feel like my world isn't spinning out of control today for a number of reasons.  The first could be that I actually got up at 6am this morning when my alarm went off, then I actually got my butt in the shower, and then I actually spent some quality time with Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown.  Alright, fine... I just watched it from the couch.  In my opinion it would be dangerous to undergo a new exercise routine without first reviewing it in my jammies AND consulting my doctor, so there you go.

I also did some sewing today.  I don't know what it is about the act of messing up projects, but sewing is SO zen for me.  I'm whipping up a few of those reusable snack & sandwich bags for my friend.  They're so easy that I threw in a few for my own bagless kids too!  AND I'm using up some PUL fabric that I bought back in my cloth diapering days.  AND some other fabric that has been hanging out in the towering stack of "someday I'll use this" items.

The timing couldn't be better since I'm linking up on Friday to the Use Your Crap challenge!  I'm so excited to actually be using something I already own instead of just buying new crap to add to the pile.  Here's a sneak peek of one of the bags!


I'm also doing the "Use Your Crap" challenge across the board and clearing out some of my Canadian chocolate that's been wasting away for almost 6 weeks in my pantry.


This Coffee Crisp must be illegal in the U.S. for being TOO good, that's why they don't have them here.  Mmmm, happy day! :) 

Oh, and I got a comment from Valerie at Frugal Family Fun about her Awesome Remote with a bacon button that made her think of me and it made me smile.  Thanks, Valerie, for letting me live in a bacon remote kind of world today :D
Any awesome things happening to you today?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jillian's yoga melt down. It isn't hard at all and I am pouring with sweat when I get done. As for using up crap I have made 6 knit items this month with stash yarn so go crap busters!
