Southern Sweet Potato Fries, DIY Canvas Panel Welcome Sign + More! (Weekly Email 1)

Hey, y’all! Welcome to my brand new weekly email newsletter (and thanks for signing up, by the way)! I am all about living a frugal lifestyle, and believe that the best way to do that is to DIY!

Hope you had some very happy holidays, and are ready to start this new year with a bang! I know I am 🙂 My new years resolutions include getting more organized, and losing the baby weight for good! I gained 60 pounds with the three little ones I had, and it’s been a few years. I’m tired of carrying it around, and plan on following a low carb diet and sweating my bottom off to Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred! I also plan on making this site even better with more recipes (healthier, ones, too!), more tips, and more craft ideas!  I love having my own little community like this – you guys are like my extended family, and I love having you here ♥ Also, a very special thanks to those who submit your recipes for me to share!

But, with that said, there is no way I can stop oogling all those delicious recipes and awesome DIY’s I’ve found on the web! This past week, I discovered an amazing sweet potato fries recipe (southern style!), made my own homemade herbs de provence, and saw how to create a super pretty canvas panel welcome sign!  Plus, much more… take a look:
