One Small Change - Week Five


Look at this terrific shopping tote made just for me by Maia of the Etsy shop Glass Beach. It is upcycled from plastic shopping bags. She used a tutorial on the Etsy Lab's blog. I love the trees and the pink handles. Isn't she clever? It will be perfect for my potentially messy purchases at the Farmer's Market.
In other updates, I have had no problem giving up soda. This is very strange and I wonder what magic has occured, but I honestly have not craved it all week. And I have not really substituted anything - just water.
So, on to the new. Judging from my inability to keep up with my kitchen goal, I have decided to aim smaller on the cleaning front: make my bed every morning when I get out of it.

I'm so please you like the bag! It was fun to work with a completely new material!

Glad to hear the disavowal of Coke is going so well!

Awesome bag!
I started drinking Nestea White Tea and raspberry (in cans) it is very yummy, but a tad sweet, probably too sugary still but it is nice for summer.

This is FANTASTIC!

The tote, but giving up soda!

I am very proud of you even though you said it was easy.

That is just so cool to me.
