DIY Friends Themed Valentines Day Cards Printables

I’ve always been a huge fan of the TV show Friends ever since I’ve known it existed. It started a little before my time and then of course, I had to wait a few years to truly get all of the hilarious innuendos. I remember the first episode that I ever watched was the very first thanksgiving that my now fiance had chosen to spend with the whole family. (He didn’t run away then, and he’s stuck around ever since despite all of the craziness, so I guess that you could say he’s a keeper.) For anyone who has spent that holiday watching Friends they know that it’s an all day thing and it’s all of the episodes that have captured that day over the years. My love for Friends started here and continued over the years with me getting the full boxed season for Christmas (which was the BEST GIFT EVER!) So for all of the Friends aficionados that enjoy this throwback still, I decided to put together these DIY Friends Themed Valentines Day Cards Printables just for you!

Making a Useful Homeward Bound Parcel

We all know that if we don’t change something our lives a little each day that on New Years Eve we’re going to be sitting in the exact same boat as we are now. I want to be kinder in 2017. Me saying I want to be kinder isn’t going to do the trick, but me making an effort and being intentional in changing my habits will. If you want the world to be a better place – you have to do your part in changing it. That’s how you change your reality. You don’t have to move mountains, but you can take the first step. In light of trying to do this I decided to finally make a Homeward Bound Parcel.

It’s the start of a brand new year, and many have made resolutions. But, about two and a half weeks into 2017 statistically many will have given up on them. Just like that. It can start in small ways of neglecting part of the exercises you’re working through to attain your goal, or it can come suddenly. But whatever the reason, it still happens. However, if you’d like to learn how to set better goals, be sure they’re SMART. You can read more about this from our post How to Write New Years Resolutions That Don’t Suck. You’ve probably read about collecting memories on sticky notes in a jar all year long and then reading them on New Years Eve.

DIY Mongram Weekender Bag Tutorial

I’m hoping to take my weekends back by knuckling down a little more during the week and I invite you to as well. For all of my weekend outings and trips I of course wanted a cute and functional bag. In my current track of life it’s just not quite possible to drop a couple hundred dollars on a monogrammed weekender bag. So I made one!

One of my new years resolutions is to find more time for me to enjoy all of the wonderful people in my life and to take a breath. Since I’m a college student and I work on weekdays the only real time I have (if any) is on the weekend.

I’ve only just realized the extraordinary value of weekends. I mean seriously in 2016 there are 105 days of weekend. This is a little over 28% of of the year which is substantial.
