38- Feeling Crafty

I have been a home body all day! For some reason, I have been tired and napping all week. What happens when you spend too much time at home is, sometimes, you get creative.

I cooked and got crafty! I have been neglecting my creative side for far too long.

Yesterday, I made my Cheesy Kale Crisps.

Before that, I prepped my Raw Flatbread. I need to  come up with a better name for it, but have yet to figure that out. Here is my process:

1. Grind flax seeds in my coffee grinder (that thing has been working faithfully for me for 5 years now, DAILY)

2. Mix in other “secret” ingredients, cover and refrigerate over night

3. Plop on parchment paper, cover with saran wrap and roll out.

4. Ready for the dehydrator!


While that was dehydrating, I got to work on a project I had been wanting to do for a while. I have a nice journal to use throughout my counseling, and I want to make sure it goes with me everywhere, so I thought it would be fun to have a special bag for it, kind of like an iPad carrier, but more personal.

I went to the Salvation Army, found some place mats and some belts, and decided to use those. Add in some nice “thread” from a quilting shop, leftover heavy duty ribbon, and you have the basics for a purse.

I want to decorate it somehow, but not sure what to add yet. I have a huge bin of craft goodies to dig through.
