painted plates.

I must admit that I got this idea from the Big-Ass Book of Crafts, which if you haven't taken a look at this book you really really must. It's packed with some fantastic ideas.

So I decided to try my hand at painting some plates (with the help of some printed images to guide me). Here's how I did it...

I purchased some clear plates, printed some silhouettes that I found on Google image search (I know, really original, Al), I taped the images face down on the top of the plate, then flipped it over and painted on top of the image. Then, I spray painted the plate on top of the image I just painted. Flip over, and voila! A pretty cool plate.

black bean and corn salad.

It's just another meatless monday... I have to admit I was writing that to the tune of "Manic Monday" by the Bangles. I was thinking that I would share this a few weeks ago and it never happened... so here we go, a black bean and corn salad (with avocado! heck yes!)

not my recipe, but here's where I got it.

yoga makes me glow.

I have recently been introduced to this fantastic website called YogaGlo. It has many different styles and levels of yoga that you can download and practice. The site is very user friendly and I just love it. I've been recommending it to many of my friends who are interested in keeping a regular yoga practice but can't afford to go to a studio. At $18 per month, you just can't beat it!

The other night, David and I were kinda wanting something to do so we bought some poster board and made "dream boards." A dream board is something where you can just draw or paste or write or color (or whatever medium you like) things that you want in life or things that you want to get done. Here are our dreams...

paint by numbers.

last week I went to a paint-by-numbers party. I hadn't painted by numbers in years... since I was a kid. However, I never remember them being as intricate as the one I was given. I didn't finish it at the party, but I was determined to complete my numbered masterpiece.

grrrr, baby.

wrappin' up some veggies.

my meatless monday post... veggie wraps.

I actually ate this for dinner tonight. Leftover sauteed veggies wrapped in a tortilla topped with cheese. Here's how it went down...



I used spinach, asparagus, red pepper, tomato, squash, zucchini, onion, mushrooms and broccoli. The beauty of a veggie wrap is that you can use whatever veggies you like!
