Get Unstuck in 2022

https://anchor.fm/wanda-mulley/episodes/Get-Unstuck-in-2022-e1eomt2/a-a7f7o64

Have you ever felt like you have hit a wall and are not making progress with goals or plans you have made? Are you moving in circles? Do you feel like something isn’t quite right? Are you feeling stuck?

Before I tell you about a FREE 5-day online course that will help get your “unstuck” I want to give you a little bit of the background of how this evolved.

My friend and fellow blogger Amelia who blogs about exploring possibilities on her website You Can Always Start Now and I have collaborated on many projects and posts over the years. One project we have been wanting to do (for a few years now) was to offer a free online class together. Something fun. Not too serious. 

We decided this would be the year. The course will be about Journaling to get “unstuck in 2022”. It is a free five day email class.

We both have experience in being stuck, from being bloggers, creatives and just human beings.  Where we felt we were missing something or if we could just get out of our own way, things would improve. Everyone needs a little push at times or someone in your corner supporting or encouraging you. We want to help you get unstuck in 2022.

Over the course of 5 days, you are going to get a better understanding of why you are stuck and learn some valuable techniques to help you journal to get “unstuck” through prompts setting goals and putting an action plan in place.

The challenge will run from March 1-5th inclusive. Each day of the challenge you’ll receive an email with a recap of the day before and have a new journaling prompt or idea to help get “unstuck”.

If this is something you would be interested in doing; send an email to awandafulthing@gmail.com with subject line UNSTUCK IN 2022. Within 24 hours you will received a free printable pdf (journal pages). We encourage you to print these off before day one.

Remember It’s A Wandaful Thing because You Can Always Start Now.

Love

Wanda & Brenda

Adapting…

Hope everyone is having a great new year (2022). Do you set intentions every new year? If so, I would like to hear what type of intentions others are setting.

A few years back I was encouraged by a friend (who is also a blogger) check her out here to pick a word that will shape your year. The word that resonated this year was EXPLORE.

Although so far in 2022 I feel more like I am adapting then exploring. I am sure adapting will eventually go hand in hand with exploring as the year goes on.

I made some big life changes recently, sold my house, visited my daughter and grandchildren in the USA for a month(two years since last visit) and now back in the town I grew up in. I arrived with only my suitcase lol

I am not an idle person by nature so adapting to a slower pace of life has been the most challenging thing for me.

However, I will use this time to ensure selfcare, like daily walks, chatting with friends and family and scheduling a daily ”to-do” list.

What are some ways you adapt to a new environment and how do you ensure self care?

Upcycled Tool Caddy

I found this tool caddy at Value Village for $2.99. It was the last trip I made to a thrift store before the world shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Last weekend , like the weekend before and the weekend before that, lol I had some time on my hands so I decided to transform the caddy.

I had some left over indoor white latex paint and I started to paint it and realized I forgot to take a “before” picture.  The picture below is shown with only one coat of paint. The paint soaked in quite well and it took about three to four coats to completely cover it.

I decided to use my Cricut Maker to make a No. 1 decal and a combination of my Chalk Couture transfers to complete the designs on both sides of the tool caddy.

I put the No. 1 vinyl decal and used a Chalk Couture transfer with black chalk paste on one side. Here is a link to the Chalk Couture transfer I used.

I used part of another Chalk Couture transfer and black Chalk Couture paste on the other side. This transfer was from the March Club Couture monthly subscription.

I left the sides plain.

I made this as a gift for someone but I’m not sure when I will be able to give it to her.  So, in the meantime, I’ll enjoy it in different areas of the house 🙂

I am leaning toward the side that says MARKET. What’s your favorite side?

Time to Change Up the Decor

Christmas is over and Valentine’s and Easter are just around the corner. I have a small standing sign I purchased from Michael’s last fall (4×6) and I change it up for every occasion. I do this because it’s small and doesn’t require a lot of time.

Last year I became part of the very fast, ever evolving, Chalk Couture world and I have been using their products to change up my little sign from Michaels. If you are curious about these products, please visit my chalkcouture site for all the information: Chalkcouture/awandafulthing

Here it is ready for Valentine’s…

Here is what it looked like at Christmas.

I also have a cute framed chalkboard on my office door (at my other job…lol) and I change that one up also. Since it is an awkward shape (as in not very big on height) – I sometimes have to get creative with the way I use my Chalk Couture transfers (luckily they can be cut apart). To hold it on my door I use strong double sided velcro. Sorry – no picture of it on my door….guess I should change that 🙂

Since these two signs were in different locations, I used the same transfer on the sign above at Christmas, and because this chalkboard sign was a bit bigger than my standing sign, I used more parts of the transfer.

The new Chalk Couture Spring/Summer Catalogue will be launching on February 08, 2020 and I’m already dreaming about how I will change up this two signs for Spring.

Weekend Coffee Share – Trip to IKEA for crafting decor items

My dearest friend and fellow blogger Amelia at You Can Always Start Now has turned me onto Weekend Coffee Share. She got turned on to it by Eclectic Ali.

It’s exactly what the title indicates – share something on your mind or something you have done over the past week.

It is a long weekend here in my part of the world, which means three days off in a row.

Most people have gone away for the weekend but I had no plans. I’ve pretty much been on the go every weekend since summer started so I decided this was the weekend to rejuvenate.

I’ve recently become a Designer with Chalk Couture in Canada and am so pleased with the products.  What is Chalk Couture – well, you can check that out here if want to.

Of course, like any company they sell and encourage you to use their products and for the most part I do. However, I like to push limits sometimes and I was curious as to what types of surfaces you can use this chalk paste and ink on.  Off to IKEA I went, so I could have some crafty projects to keep me busy on this long weekend (besides the two books I devoured so far).

For just under $50.00 I found 10 surfaces I could customize. A laundry basket, two blank pillow covers, a wooden crate (assembly required), three fake succulents in one package, one real succulent, a boot mat, and a soap dispenser.

I’ve created something on all of them except the crate – maybe I’ll feel like assembling that tomorrow.

So as I drink my coffee and write my post, I think well now that was fun and WOW 10 personalized items for under 50 bucks.

I’ll be posting pics and details in a soon to be published post.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you back here soon.
