September Drink More Water Challenge Starts NOW!

Well, we've made it to Day 1 of my September "Drink More Water" Challenge!  I hope that you snagged your FREE Printable from my last Blog Post; if you didn't, check out Friday's Blog Post and get your Printable from there now. 

Today I'm so excited to start my challenge with those of you who have already committed!  If you didn't put in your commitment; that's OK!  You can still Challenge with us---just jump in anytime!  And be sure to join me on Facebook and on Instagram for some additional group motivation.  I figure this first round we'll go three weeks (so the Challenge starts TODAY and will run until SATURDAY, September 29th!)

To kick us off, I have some more great additional resources for you.  First, I'm going to share some Tips & Tricks with you on how I use my Water Tracker and give you some extra ideas on how you can make this Tracker work for you.

Here's how mine looked last week:

As I mentioned, I use stickers to help me mark off my boxes and I really just got them from the Dollar Tree.  You can pick up little stickers just about anywhere, or you can just cross them off with a pen, marker, or crayon.  Whatever tickles your fancy.  (I started my own personal challenge a day late so, that's why there's nothing filled in for Sunday!)  This is also quite pleasing for my OCD and so it's almost a challenge to not just drink the water, but to make my chart pretty and complete!  Ha!

I have a 30 oz. tumbler that I'm using every day.

This tumbler makes it really easy for my to track how my water consumption is going.  I have filled in my "key" to show that each box is equal to 30 oz. of water; so my target goal each day is 3 boxes or 90 oz. of water.

This is a bit more than half of my body weight in ounces, but I figure more is better!  This makes things so much easier for my to keep track of and mentally I think it's easier for me to tell myself "drink three of these" instead of "drink *90* ounces of water"!  So...if you have a favorite water glass/bottle/tumbler, get that out and measure how much ounces it holds and determine how many glasses/bottles/tumblers you need to drink each day to hit your goal! 

(For example: if you weigh 140 pounds, you want to drink 70 ounces of water per day.  Your favorite water bottle holds 16 ounces of water; take 70 / 16 = 4.375; I'd round up and make it 5 bottles of water a day).

One last thing I do is I have agreed with my Hubby to "reward" myself with $0.25 per sticker.  If I hit my goal of 3 tumblers per day every day a week, I'll "earn" $5.25/week in guilt free money.  I can splurge on a coffee or maybe I'll save it up for some Stampin' Blends or a new ShadowSense!  I'm pretty competitive by nature, but having that little "extra" reward money sweetens the pot for me!

I've also created one more FREEBIE for you!  Here is a three-week Water Recipe Plan that you can print off and use to help flavor some of you water for more added variety.  Let me know what you think!

All right---3-2-1 GO!  How are you doing so far today???

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!) Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit! This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some
