Early New Years Resolution

I've been such a slacker with my blog posts. Life gets so busy sometimes. I need to take my own advice and make more time to feed my own soul....ahhh the story of my life!

Life's about to get much busier with my first little one on the way:-)Better find some time now, right?

So, to help with my procrastination, I'm going out on a limb here and making an early New Years Resolution. Starting in 2010 I vow to make a blog post every 2 weeks....I know it's a stretch...but I can do it!

Speaking of you have an interesting New Years Resolution this year? Or do you throw the resolutions out the window all together since they seem to be so hard to stick to?

Peace Out!

Composting for Beginners

Why throw your vegetable peels and eggshells in the garbage...instead convert your organic waste into compost to improve your soil and give your plants the nourishment they need.
I've been composting for a few months now. It is like second nature now...I chop my vegetables, place my scraps in a jar or bag and take them out to my compost pile. Now, I have compost to naturally give my plants and vegetables the nutrients they need and I am keeping organic compost out of the landfills and using it resourcefully. Here are a couple pics of my compost bin.

Composting as Easy as 1, 2, 3

1. Make a compost bin using chicken wire and scrap wood. Dig four holes for the wooden posts and then staple the chicken wire to the wood....whalah...a compost bin...or if you're feeling spunky you can make a bin using scrap wood. You can make it as simple or elaborate as you want but I opted for simple. Be sure to place your bin in a shady spot in your yard so the compost does not dry out.

2. Add grass clippings, leaves, small twigs, kitchen scraps - egg shells, vegetable peels, coffee grinds (the filter too) and tea not add any meat or bones unless you like unwanted critters! Do not add large branches as they will take a REALLY long time to breakdown.

3. Turn your pile weekly using a pitchfork or shovel. Your compost pile needs to be kept moist for the materials to breakdown. Its a great feeling when you start to see your efforts pay off ~ another way to feed your soul :-)
Happy Composting!

~ Ways to Feed Your Soul ~

Here are a few ideas that you can easily work into your busy scheduled to Feed Your Soul.

1) Put on some music and dance like no one is watching! This is something you can do during daunting household chores or while you're getting ready in the morning. You can even make it a family event. Turn off the boob tube and the computer and crank up the tunes. The kids are sure to love it. Just watching them will make your heart glisten a little more.

2) Find a good book and spend at least 30 minutes a day reading it. Don't think you can find the time? Take your book and a throw blanket to work with you. Go outside at lunch and find a nice spot under a tree and start reading!

3) Start a journal. A journal can be used to reflect on many things in your life from personal self reflection and exploration to documenting family history or even as an art journal. Starting a journal will not only feed your soul, but it will spark your creativity and allow you to focus on whats really important in life. Don't think you have time to write...Keep your journal beside your bed and each night before you turn out the lights, jot down a few thoughts to reflect on your day.

One of the ways I am feeding my soul is by making journals. This gives me time to reflect on my life and express my creativity, with hope that I can help others find the direction in life they are looking for. Visit my Etsy Site at

Remember, no matter what you are doing to Feed Your Soul, it is necessary to live a happy and balanced life :-)

Soul Searching

Stuck in a rut? Stressed? Feel like there's just not enough time in the day?That's how I was feeling when it hit me one day. Maybe I don't have the job that I love or nearly enough time to do everything I want to do. I can sit and be miserable about it or take the bull by the horns and create the life I deserve. You can find happiness within yourself and your life just by creating some time for yourself. Do some soul searching and rediscover yourself, find your passions in life. I believe true happiness is created when you your life is in balance. If you do not make time for yourself to feed your much passion are you really putting into the rest of your life?
