DIY Chairs

I have been having fun redoing chairs for my booth. Here is a recent redo with an antique chair that got a new coat of black paint that we distressed and then covered the seat with a stenciled cotton fabric.
I sell the fabric stenciled and ready to go for you in my etsy shop. Now you too can get this same look for your old chair. You can see the selection here.

I hope this is true

I have not tried this myself,but hope ir is true. Supposedly you can get these printed at Staples as an Engineers Print for $4.99 This would be great for decorating some of those large awkward walls I have. Has anyone done this? Let me know please.

FitBit Challenge Anyone??

Source: rei.com via Jenny on Pinterest

My son gave me a FitBit for Christmas and I love it! It is a pedometer, but so much more. It clicks on your clothes and tracks total steps, mileage walked, and calories burned. Is it super exact? I am not sure. What I am sure about is that it is very motivating for me to get moving. It also syncs to your smart phone and computer. I can open the app on my phone at anytime to see how I am doing. I also can keep my food logged on the app to see cals in vs. cals out. If that weren't enough, you can invite your friends who have a FitBit to link with you and challenge each other. When I log in I can see if I am moving as much or less than my friend even taunt or cheer her. Of course I would only cheer my friends. So anyone else get a FitBit? Wanna challenge with me?
