As I was considering what I should share with you this week, I thought about a few projects I have in process and others I can’t share yet and concluded that this would be a great time to share some of my favorites with you. No affiliate links or anything like that – just a few things I can’t live without these days and thought I’d share.
- First up, something non-sewing related (although it could be argued that this fuels my sewing) – simplegreensmoothies.com. I found Simple Green Smoothies through my sister and I’m so happy I did. I was looking for away to get my veggies, eat healthier and more raw foods. One thing I love about this site is that the ingredients are simple, no added sugar or sweeteners, but everything is so tasty. Of course there are things I found I didn’t like (for me, pears take some getting used to and I still struggle through kale and prefer spinach), but as a busy mom, I love that these are just as quick to throw together as something unhealthy. It removes the time excuse! I used to make them for lunch, but I recently did their Fresh Start 21 Day cleanse and really learned to love them for breakfast. You can also sign up for their FREE 30 day challenges where they’ll send new recipes (not generally on their site) to try. Even if you don’t love every single recipe they send, you’re bound to find some new favorites!
- Next Up – The Sewing Rabbit Pattern Member. This one is strictly a sewing indulgence, but quickly becoming a necessity! For $10/month (can cancel at any time) you get 3 new PDF sewing patterns a month! Not to mention a community of like-minded people who all share a love for sewing and patterns. The first month, they offered the Knight Hoodie pattern by Charming Doodle, The Madeline Dress pattern by mesewcrazy/Jessica Abbott, and a toiletries Travel Bag pattern with 3 sizes. April brought us the Jack and Jill Colorblock Shirt from Peaches and Peanuts, The Natty Janes Leather Baby Shoe Pattern by DeliaCreates, and The Ojai Wrap, exclusive first pattern from Sew Country Chick. Seriously, all three for $10. The sneak peak for next month is KILLING me – is it May yet? If you have a pattern addiction like I do, it’s a fun way to feed the need.
- Lastly, and I only heard about this today (thanks Karen!), Camel Camel Camel. If you’re shopping for something, ANYTHING, and you don’t need it this second…AND…you’d like a deal or have a specific budget, this site will track Amazon.com for you and alert you when it comes into your price range. How cool is that!? My friend, Karen, bought her first sewing machine with the help of Camel Camel Camel, so you know it has to be good, right?!
I’d love to hear about your favorites, sewing or non-sewing related or let me know what you’re working on! I’d love to know you stopped by. See you next week!
