Halloween trick or treat creations

I had a blast making these halloween trick or treat bags for my step-children, nieces, and adopted nieces. I followed this simple two sided bag tutorial from Skip to My Lou’s websiteΒ and just ran with it. I had left over Dora fabric and lined T and M’s bags, and used them for the base for e and g’s bags. The girls all lovedΒ their bags and I had so much making them. A little fabric goes a looong way.

Day 5 and the last

Well due to this juice fasting draining my pockets I am going to have to switch back to food, and possibly juice once or twice. In the past 8 days Joe & I have spent $750 if not more on veggies and fruits. So, to keep our bank accounts happy Joe is going to juice more than twice a day, and I will cut down. Im not ready to quit juicing, but I dont want to spend a $1000 in 10 days just on food. Thats a $100 a day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And come on lets not admit that many of us are willing spend $100 a day to feed ourselves.

But to finish out the day I juiced last night and made breakfast slurps to take to work today. We ran out of stock and had to go shop at the Farmers Market. Heres our cute little awesome family run farmers market.

Love this little place!

I got some delicious veggies & fruits today from the market, and was thrilled with the selection. We finally got some kale, Yay! It was todays bill that put us over the edge, I ended up purchasing $150 on our meals.

Nothing like fresh produce to put a smile on my face.

On a happier not it was my neices 2nd birthday today! She is my little stinker, and has my heart and all my attention. I had time at work today to do some crafting, and since she loves Dora the Explorer like most toddlers I made her this cute little bag. I cant wait to see her expresion when she sees the bag. I also plan on making her an apron, and a qaspeq.

Now that I am resting, and my feet are kicked up its time to introduce a meal to this lean, mean, eating machine. I am down 11 pounds, feeling great. Thinking clearly. And energized I am ready to start eating right and healthy. That freezer full of salmon, moose, and caribou are calling my name. Hope you all have a wonderful evening!
