Thrive and Etsy January 19, 2012

Are you into a regular routine, now that school’s back in?  Are you thriving in your new goals?  This year, I started making wonderful smoothies for breakfast! I am a consultant for Thrive in Canada, it just got launched Dec 1st, 2011..  You can find my page here:  Even if you aren’t from Canada, but are in the US you can still order off this site! As it’s an american based company that is rapidly expanding.  It will soon be launched in Japan!

  My morning breakfast is a smoothie using Thrive freeze-dried food!  It is the simplest way to prepare a simple but nutritious breakfast in the morning,  It’s mess free, cuts down the preparation time, and zero waste!  I have a pantry full of mangoes, apricots, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, apples, pineapple, peach slices, red seedless grapes, that are freeze-dried.  They just added cherries in a pantry size can, which I can’t wait to try out!!  The advantage is that when they aren’t open, shelf life can be up to 25-30 years!!!  Once open shelf life, 18 months-2 years!   My routine breakfast: any variety of 1/4 cup of all the fruit (I just listed) with a few pinches of spinach. Rehydrate by putting some water on top of the fruit for 3-5 minutes. I’m getting my fiber!  Then I put in my blendtec (best blender ever!!) a little bit of yogurt, and 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder.   Push the smoothie button, and less than 2 minutes a yummy delicious filling breakfast!  I can vary the taste, by adding more or fewer types of fruits I like! There is also bananas…I haven’t gotten those yet.   In Canada, we can’t yet order the flavored yogurt bites, but I can’t wait to try them ou, when dairy and meats gets added into the line!!  Next time, I will have to post a picture, as of right now, I have just the empty glass, beside me..which I should rinse out soon, as the natural sugars will adhere to it.   Then I go over to Etsy, and look at how my shop is doing.    I’m in the process of adding hair accessories this week.   I have so many things to list, it’s overwhelming on most days, so slowly I’ll get everything up! Keep checking in!  Christina


Another New Start and Direction for 2012 January 9, 2012

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted.  It’s a beginning of another year, and I’m heading in several different directions! I just finished this fall, my last year of Jewelry Sales in community craft markets.  I have committed to doing no more…..kind of scary! I’ve even sold some of my displays.  I do have a lot of stock to get rid of, and so I need to start putting it online. 

The places to check out, as I try to continue to list items almost daily is  and  Zaybia is a “Made in Canada only” website like Etsy, but only features Canadian artists.  I just have a few things there listed.

I fell off the bandwagon doing my 365 project.  Fall, just gets so busy, with fulfilling my inventory for jewelry sales, and I didn’t want to compromise on putting up pictures that didn’t meet my standards.  This fall, I also introduced my line of photography cards to sell at shows, they are available online:

Now, that 2012 is here! I have had some time to open up my studio lights, and start taking pictures of children, and will venture a little on to this path.  I love taking pictures of them, it is so fun! I have put some of my pictures up on, a fun site that has a lot of contests to keep my creative juices flowing, and have won a few awards there!

I also started in the fall, another blog,  It helps one to get better prepared, and help to also promote,  a freeze dried product, that promotes zero % waste, with no preservatives, and additives.  Thrive was just launched Dec 1st, 2011 in Canada.  Something right up my alley.

Anyways, Stay tuned!







I didn’t want to not put up quality pictures.  I do miss taking a picture each day!
