Collections

Follow Jenny Jenny’s board Collections on Pinterest.

Do you collect things? I do. I actually have a few odd collections.

When I was little, I used to collect pencils, erasers and stickers. I vaguely remember also collecting marbles and Pogs, but I can’t remember if I actually collected them per say or just played with them a lot.

 

These days, I have a more *ahem* sophisticated collection. I’m a huge Starbucks fan and have started collecting their mugs and gift cards. I would love to collect some Starbucks gift cards from all over the world, but so far I only have ones from Florida and Canada.

I’m also starting a temporary tattoo collection. I’m just at the beginning stage of this collection. I have High School Musical tattoos (I mean who wouldn’t want Zac Efron* tattooed on them) and Hello Kitty tattoos. I think this would be a fun collection to give to my daughter when she’s a little bit older. Maybe I’ll have enough tattoos that she can give herself a full sleeve. Ha! Best mom ever!

Do you have any collections? What do you collect?

 

* Speaking of Zac Efron, have you seen this Tonight Show video with Jimmy Fallon, Seth Rogan and Zac Efron. Ewwww!

Personal Priorities

 

How do you set your personal priorities? I’m struggling with that a bit myself. There are so many things that I feel like I should be doing at the same time. I’m a great multi-tasker. As I’m writing this I’m drinking coffee, answering text messages, listening to Canada AM news, admiring this cute pin I found at Value Village and writing this blog post.

For myself, I’ve decided that family comes first. When my daughter is awake, I’m awake with her. We’re doing things, making her laugh, reading books. Those special moments are so precious, I don’t want to miss a beat.

I’m next in line. Me. I take this time to shower, brush teeth, drink coffee, sit for a minute, fitness, eat. I’m important too. I need to take care of me, in order to take care of everyone else.

Home. My home is my castle. Although it is messy most of the time, I do my best to keep it clean. I take this time to quickly Windex windows, take dishes out of the dishwasher, make the beds, etc…

This is where the blog comes in. Hello, this is where I’m at today. When I go back to work after maternity leave, things may shift a bit, but blogging will always be on my list.

Then my Etsy shop. Ha! Didn’t see that one coming!?! I’m working on an Etsy shop to sell my crafty creations and cool stuff I find in thrift stores. I’m a huge thrift store fan. I love #findthefind. It makes me feel good when I find something cool. I want to share it with the world. My house it pretty small, so unfortunately, I can’t keep everything, so I hope that someone on the Internet can find some love for the cool things I find.

Reading is also on my list. While on maternity leave, I’ve found a new love for the Ottawa Public Library. Lately, I’ve been into reading biographies and books on tattoos. It’s pretty cool stuff. Reading keeps me thinking creatively, so I’ve added it to my list of priorities.

Everything else comes after this.

What do you have on your list of personal priorities? Do you agree with my list?
