I mean, probably not, right? But I guess it’s the year that our start-of-year intentions could develop into real, positive change for the years to come. More than ever this year, I focused… Continue reading

Roast chicken seven ways – eat for a week!

Being a thrifty student, I’ve always struggled to find affordable ways to get meat like chicken into my meals. It’s full of protein and goodness, but can be very pricey, especially if you… Continue reading

DIY – Leather wallets

Let me say right away ‘Leather Wallets’ is probably a bit of a fancy term for these lil’ guys. Maybe leather pouches? Or little card envelopes? I’m going to be keeping my store… Continue reading

DIY Christmas Table Runner

Happy Birthday!

Dude. Happy Birthday. My sister is another year older and it’s weird. (I, like Joey from friends, find it rather disconcerting that people perpetually grow older.) Anyway, even though I’ve already wished Abi Happy Birthday… Continue reading
