Kids Flower Crafts for the Shabbat table

Cupcake liner flowers are one of those crafts that just make you smile! What’s not to love? A few days ago I showed you some romantic carnation-like versions here. So now I thought I’d share this little colorful bouquet, made the same way just with the addition of some blue-striped liners and some bright paint.

Its easy for kids and moms too!

I’m originally from California, where Mexican heritage has quite a presence, so though I’m preparing for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Shavuos, I just couldn’t help but think how great these would be for Cinco de Mayo! And I even pulled out my authentic Mexican blanket for the photo! And by the way, large vintage sugar and flour shakers (or even salt and pepper, but they’re usually much smaller) make great little vases, just stick the stems into the holes and voila!

Day 22!

2 Comments 07 May 2010

Did you know that it takes 21 days to form a habit?  Habits are created by repetition. The best way old habits may be broken is to form new habits, to counteract and replace the undesirable ones. Form new mental habits paths over which to travel, and soon the old ones will become less distinct.

So, congratulations! You went thru the hardest part of “sugar Detox”— the first 21 days. The next week is going to be so easy.

Most of us became accustomed with what to eat and not eat.  Some became frustrated because I didn’t give out a “diet plan.” But if I did that, then you will always look for me for support. The people who give out diet plans are usually the ones who want to make money.  I would rather give you tools for life and learn what makes your body feel as good as can be. Granted, it may take a few trials and errors, but at the end of the day you will have a way to eat for the rest of your life.

I keep on repeating myself, but I am so ecstatic about what we are doing.  I am so energized by everyones excitement. I will give you a few examples; I was running down Ocean Parkway and I passed a good friend of mine, Flo Tebele on the other side. She hollers out from across the street, “I’m on the detox!!”  I big smile spreads across my face.  Another friend confides in me that she bought whole wheat food for the first time in her life. I instantly glowed.

And another close friend, Celie Haddad whispers in my ear that she is on the “Sugar Detox since she became influenced in August! That’s almost 10 months! Celie is going to share her story with us on May 7th, our celebration day.

Speaking of celebrations, my birthday is on Saturday May 1. I so want to plan a birthday party for myself, and I would want nothing more than to share it with you! (I need to figure out a way to do that!)  I guess, Eddie will just have to do! (Though he’s not sugar detoxer) and no birthday cake for me! Don’t feel bad, I am ecstatic to say no!

Detox day 19!

No Comments 07 May 2010

On my first e-mail to you I posed a question, “Can you go a day, a week, or how about a month with no sugar?” Well, most of us completed a day, lots completed a week, and can you believe it…. So many are approaching 1 month goal mark!

Today, on day 19, we can look back and say, WOW! We can start feeling that proud feeling of accomplishment that we get when we do something so terrific for ourselves.

Though, I believe the greatest accomplishment is believing in yourself and saying “I think I can do this!”

Below is a famous poem by Walter D. Wintle that has helped, and continues to help me, to achieve higher in my goals.

Thinking

If you think you are beaten, you are,

If you think you dare not, you don’t;

If you like to win, but you think you can’t,

It is almost certain you wont.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,

For out in the world we find,

Success begins with a fellow’s will-

It’s all in a state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,

You’ve got to think high to rise;

You’ve got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go

To the stronger or faster man,

But soon or late, the man who wins

Is the man who thinks he can.
