Kitchen in a Cupboard

This is perfect. You can cook stove top, it has two “induction hobs”, I looked it up, and its a type of stove top, uses less energy, and the heat goes to the pot, not the surface.  To me that sounds great. And you can replace the microwave with a combo microwave/convection oven.  And toaster ovens are the best thing ever invented, honest try one – can bake small batch’s of cookies, bisquits – many things. And as for the fridge being too small, I have one this size, and its enough for me, as I shop daily for most things.

Crazy Quilt Recycled Denim jacket

I have used all sorts of denim pieces in this jacket, in the CQ style, utilizing some pockets and labels too. I’ve made a number of these jackets and find they’re a great way to use up denim! I’ve also attempted knitting with denim strips too, which isn’t something I would highly recommend. I liked the end result, but my hands didn’t!

I love this idea. I also admire crazy quilting, especially the traditional style using rich fabrics, embroidery, beads, lace and other gorgeous things for trim and extra embellishments.

11 Books for Fat Girls

I’m trying the parkour idea, but it’s hard to feel inspired and energized when it comes to exercise when you aren’t fit or slim. Often we need to look outside ourselves for inspiration. I know the fitness gurus will tell you to be inspired from within, to do it for yourself, and so on. That would be great if that worked every time.

The Amazon plugin I was using us causing errors and making all my posts unreadable. So I have deleted it and all the links which were here (and a few other posts) are now pretty useless, so I deleted them too. 

Big Blogging Women – BBW

I seem to have a need to begin new projects. I don’t always have the energy or social personality to take them as far as I would like to see them go. What I do have is endless ideas and some of them really are good. Even if it is just me saying so.

I’d like to start a directory for BBW, large sized women with blogs. Why? Well, because I like to read them myself and it would be nice to give each of them a place to connect, find each other and inspire each other. I already have a great WordPress plugin to run the directory from. It does need a bit of a tweak but nothing difficult. So I am going to begin adding the blogs I already know about from my own looking around and my digging for BBW sites at Scoop.it. If you find this directory, you are welcome to join. You can submit your blog through the WordPress plugin and I will review it (to make sure it’s not someone spamming their way in) and then add it.

I decided not to do this. But, if someone wanders into this post and is interested in taking up the idea I would work with someone else to do it.
