Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Today let’s fling Fido and Fluffy’s stuff.  It’s time to fling those too small collars and bowls, treats that the cat just will not eat and the frayed leashes. If you have supplies from a long gone pet, like an aquarium or a hamster habitat, today is the day to let those go.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many pet supplies you were able to fling today.

 

There's An App for That: Evernote

There's An App for That: Evernote

Evernote has become one of my favorite apps. I use it to store all kinds of information that I will want to retrieve later, things such as a great recipe from a friend, screenshots of other websites I am inspired by as I revamp my own website, and quotes that I want to remember. Basically Evernote is now my go-to spot to save anything I am going to need later.

 

Shine On In 2014

Shine On In 2014

Welcome to 2014! Did you make resolutions for the new year? Have you broken your resolutions already? Whether you have or haven’t, the new year marks a time when we often decide we want to start fresh, make changes and generally improve ourselves to be better human beings. 

For the past  few years instead of making resolutions, I've tried to set goals for myself and come up with a theme word to serve as my mantra for the rest of the year. Abundance and growth were my theme words for the past two years and both served well as focal points for my goals and aspirations.
