DIY: Button Blazer

So I was a little crafty this weekend and made it my business to start this blazer I had been planning to finish. I got the blazer at some thrift store, bought the chains at Micheals and got the buttons from Etsy.

Only took abt an hour
I took the backs off of the buttons so that they could lay flat

Instead of using the E-6000 I used my glue gun.

Hunter Green Blazer
It turned out better than I had expected!

Learning gives us a fuller conviction of the imperfections of our nature; which one would think, might dispose us to modesty.
Some of us are judgmental, some us have bad attitudes, and some of us have low self-esteem issues. My point is that we all have imperfections. It’s perfectly natural for us to be imperfect creatures. Without those flaws we would have no character, no struggles and no victories within ourselves. We have to learn flaws are not meant to make us change in to perfect creatures, but to allow us to recognize are flaws and correct them accordingly and grow from them. No flaw is placed within us by mishap. We develop these imperfections in hopes to build a better mother, sister, wife or friend. (Unbeknownst to us)  I’ll be the first to admit, I had the slickest mouth and the worst attitude! And the bad part about it all is that I knew. My excuse was it’s just the way I am. I look back on that and could not have agreed more with myself. It was just me and if not for that bad attitude and slick mouth, I don’t think I would have known what it is like to bit your tongue for once or let go of the attitude because it takes too much energy. I will say that I wish I had known that those flaws needed to change sooner, because it would have saved me the extra and unnecessary! I say this to say embrace your flaws, BUT do not be afraid to recognize that a change should be in progress. I don’t believe in forcing people to change the negative things about themselves. We have to learn to love in spite of …even if that means loving from a distance. Because God knows some attitudes just can’t and shouldn’t be dealt with! But loving each other’s flaws allows us to love our own imperfections and in turn we become more understanding about defects and faults. Learn your flaws and learn from them!

Score: I'm Deeply in Love

I'd Appreciate It if you fell in love too!
Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.~

So I finally got my camera out the shop after just buying it only a month ago. Decided to go ahead and play around with it, being that I don’t really know how to work it. So here’s my discovery!

Sunday, January 2

I’m off the resolution ish…Honestly, I’ve never made a goal at the beginning of the year and actually kept it. I’m to inconsistent with things in my life to make that commitment lol However I did think of some new things I need to invest in soon before the year is out. Wait! This sounds like 2011 resolution list, lol whtev...
I needed these in my life since forever, TOMS will be in my closet before the year is over!
Purchase a watch by these guys We-Wood "Buy a watch, plant a tree" Wouldn't want to have it any other way!
Splurge on some JC shoes
Paint more often
Invest in some more off the shoulder shirts. Call me a weirdo but I think that's the most classiest part on my body

I need to get the mural on back finished or started...well I'm in the between stages, so whatever that's called

I’m awfully sick today and needed to make something super easy and quick to eat for lunch. I have no desire to be in a hot kitchen, flipping and whisking up some fabulous meal. So with that in mind, I made me some veggie burgers and sweet potatoes fries. 
I think these were mushroom veggie patties by Morning Star

Sliced up some tomatoes, added some spinach, cheese and drizzled some BBQ sauce on them!

Forgiveness is a funny thing, it warms the hearts and cools the sting.
(This picture has nothing to do with the topic being discussed. I just loved that it shows how inquisitive and gentle these beauties can be. If you ask me, I think you should fall in love with it too! Appreciate it!)

Trusting, loving and forgiving are the many things in life that we must learn to revive time and time again. There is no manual for perfecting these challenges and yet we stand still and keep pushing in the mist of the pitfalls of each. But in the hustle and bustle of time healing all, we can find a sense of relief in learning to forgive. There was a time in my life where I would hold the longest grudge, and when all was said and done it would be forgotten why it was held in the first place. I marveled at how I was able to keep myself sane after being mad for so long. Anger has a way of controlling every puzzle of your life. We often get so caught up in being so angry with people for hurting us, letting us down, and betraying us and lose sight of who we are. We expend so much energy in exercising our non-forgiving ways that we are exhausted from the run around. Forgiveness is a breath of fresh that we all need to give ourselves when the going gets tough. It’s a whisper that says, its okay this to shall pass. It’s a smile that says the shackles have been broken; you no longer have to hurt anymore. When we learn to forgive we show ourselves that we are capable of moving on. When we forgive we learn that second chances are to be given. When we forgive we learn how to truly live life freely. The day that I truly forgave with a whole and pure heart, I felt so free and joyful. We have to learn to forgive even when we have the right to be mad. I strongly recommend that all forgive a little at a time and in its fullness a sense of freedom will be obtained.
