Tips and Tricks: How to Properly Fold a T-Shirt

Who knew there could be a proper way of folding a t-shirt? I say proper because this technique could save you time unfolding and refolding your tee's when you pull out the wrong one. We all know that is a bummer and down right annoying. I have two ways to fold your tees so there is no guessing what you're about to unfold. What's the trick? It's simple, you have to expose the graphics! 

How to Properly told a T-Shirt: Method 1

Look at that beautiful display of t-shirts? I'm sure you never thought t-shirts could look so good. 

First fold your shirt in half. Bring the collar even with the bottom of the shirt. 

Second, fold in your arms. Make sure the top of the tee and the bottom of the tee stay even in width. 

Now fold the shirt in half.

And flip over! Look at that graphic! 

How to Properly Fold a T-Shirt Method 2

In method two you can still see a portion of all the graphic. This technique works best if you have small logos on the chest. 

First, fold the tee in half vertically. 

Second, fold in your arms.

Next, fold the top half of the shirt half way down the body. 

Then, fold the bottom half up underneath the top half. 

Turn over and you're all done!

Now you know how to properly fold a t-shirt. Choose the method that's right for you and get to folding! Be inspired and create!

DIY Spring Wreath: Pink and Green

Spring is here and I can't think of a single person who isn't excited about it! It's time to do a little Spring decorating so why not start with a fresh new wreath. I love pink and green combos for Spring. I used various highs and lows of pinks and greens to create an eye pleasing focal point. I did however get a little crazy with so many textures. 

Here's what you need: 
Floral Stems
Wreath Form
Hot Glue

I started with the moss first,hot gluing it to my wreath form. I would use a twig form versus the one I got, not sure what I was thinking. Once your moss is in place start adding your flowers. 

Once I started adding the flowers I didn't like how much greenery there was from the stems, so I picked off some of the flowers and hot glued them into the wreath. 

Leave a space for your ribbon and add your bow. I love this chevron mesh! 

Be inspired and create!

Uses for Baking Soda: Keeping Shoes Fresh

Ok ladies, we've all had a pair of shoes that could use a little freshening up. Sometimes I think baking soda is a cure all. There are so many uses for it and I found one more to add to the list. To keep your shoes fresh sprinkle some baking soda in your shoes, use a damp paper towel to rub it in and shake out the excess. For extra protection sprinkle baking soda on the bottoms of your feet before you head out. 

Give it a try! Be inspired and create!

Healthy Breakfast: Egg McMuffin

A healthy breakfast doesn't have to be boring. This delicious healthy egg mcmuffin recipe is only 3-4 Weight Watchers points! I say 3-4 because you may not want the cheese or you may not want the egg.

1/2 of a 100 calorie English muffin: 1.5pts
1 slice Canadian Bacon: Less than .5 pt but I calculate it as .5 pt.
1 slice fat free cheese: 1 pt
1 egg white: 1pt

Cook your egg, add pepper to taste. 
Heat up your Canadian Bacon and English Muffin in the skillet. Add cheese while items are hot and enjoy. 

This is so good you won't believe it's healthy! Be inspired and create!
