Things You Can Do in 10 Minutes

Energy comes in 10 minute spurts these days.  Here are a few of the things I've been doing in 10 minute increments:

Get fake bangs:
Went to my fabulous friend Amanda and had her trim these fake bangs to look a bit more natural.

Yes these are fake bangs. Weird huh?

Repurpose a Hat:
I made a bunch of plain hats in anticipation of orders.  Needless to say, I anticipated the wrong sizes.  Fortunately a quick 10 minute addition turned this tiny hat into a baby gift for Amanda's little boy or girl.  Her husband is a football coach so I thought he might like this:

Make All Natural Lotion Bars:
I've been wanting to make these for awhile.  They took so little time that I will definitely be making more. I got the recipe from one of my favorite blogs The Healthy Beehive 
Next week, I'll make some without coconut oil to share with Jolleen!

Make My Husband Hang Stuff:
I could hang these things myself.  But I'm sick, and impatient, he actually measures, gets out a level, and uses the correct tools.  He's good like that.  I prefer the "eye ball it" and "work with what you have" method.

I get weekly emails from this blog with tips on simplifying life.  She creates a declutter calendar that has great ideas for breaking down tasks and tackeling organization.  Another thing I made my husband hang was a mail organizer next to a paper shredder by the front door.  There will be no more junk mail on my dining room table.  That sh** won't even make it up the stairs (no picture. sorry)

 Ok, so the naps are much longer than 10 minutes, but with this cuddle partner, who can blame me!


  1. ahhh I love the fake bangs!!! I'm glad you made the lotion bars, so easy right???

  2. So easy! And I use them at night before I go to sleep on my hands and feet. Makes a huge difference!
