Changes for Lil’ Jomie Creations

lil jomie merged copyHey everyone,

 

It’s been a crazy two weeks but I can’t complain been very busy. Okay two weeks ago I had explain I was going to post some news on my Facebook page. It’s nothing horrible but there are major changes to Lil’ Jomie Creations, that I feel needed to be changed in order to become successful. If I don’t do this now, I know Lil Jomie Creations will be run down to the ground and I don’t want that and I know my fellow Lil’ Likers wouldn’t want to see that either.

 

What are the changes?

 

I’m slowing my business down and practically restarting it again. What does that mean? Well due to the circumstances  occurring in my life, I can’t focus and give full dedication to my business, which means, instead of working a full time job I will be working part time. I want to focus more on creating my escape of relaxing–unfortunately I seem to lose it and my creativity mind seem to get cloudy.

Lately I started to notice my passion to create, began to return when I started to teach and show demos. The excitements of showing someone how to create something or help with their block helps get my creative juices running again. Afterwards I come home with a bunch of ideas and start to create projects with the help of my munchkin (only certain projects); I become happy and stress free.

With this said, I always wanted to make my own Youtube videos and I’ve been researching on how to make one–I know what some of you might be saying ‘you only need a camera.’ Which is true, but I want to give you guys a high quality video, not just a halfway made video. But, soon I will be making and posting videos!

 

“What can I expect on your soon to be Youtubes Videos?”

Tutorials: a step-by-step guide on how to create something, reviews on  products, gadgets and even how to use them, learn about these certain products and what the full purpose of these products will be. ‘My Child and Me’, are great tutorials about what you can do with your kids or any child in your lives.

Now, my Youtube channel will not only be for crafts but for personal use too (now for this I’m still deciding if I should do all in one youtube channel or have 2 separate channels) anyway, if so, there will organization tips and tricks, products that I have used or made myself, play time with your children and so forth.

Now my videos won’t be up every week I’m going to take things slow and probably post once a month or twice a month or even more but mostly once a month.

“What will happen to your etsy shop?”

My etsy shop will still be up and running I still will be posting items but not as consistently, I will adding items to my shop and letting you guys know what items I will be posting up.

“Should I still follow you on instagram and twitter?”

Yes, please do! I would be posting photos and messages through my accounts,  of either stuff I’ve created for myself or creations that my munchkin and I did or another creation– from others that I just have to share because their piece was so awesome.

Now for my ‘Thank you’:

I just have to say to all of you, is thank you for the support and love that I have been receiving. This year 2013, has been a rough year for myself and my family but we have to continue on moving forward until the dark cloud move away. The last thing I want to do to is disappoint you guys, you are the ones that helped me create and grow Lil’ Jomie Creations, without you I wouldn’t have a small business. Once again Thank you with all my heart ❤

 

***Keep checking up by following me on facebook, instagram and twitter: for news, quotes, or anything else that’s going on.***

Remember together we can create something from the heart ❤ ❤ <3.

Note to self:

After reviewing this week:

  • Take multi-vitamins and iron pills daily
  •  Take fruits to snack on when I go to work.
  • Most likely I’m going to be in and out of Boston for the rest of the summer, I need to plan and prepare meals to take on the road. Also, for exercising I walk for half an hour.

***************************************************************

Tip of the week:  It’s hard to keep up with the healthy life style on the road. I know this summer most likely I will be going back and forth from NYC to Boston (do to family situations). In order to continue eating well and exercise one needs to plan meals and snacks to take on the road. If you have a nationwide gym membership use it, if not walk for half an hour to an hour take a family member with you and talk ( the hour will go by fast) or look up exercise to do at home. For eating out, we are all tempted to eat everything in the menu for this use your judgment, share a meal or eat half and save the other for the  next day.

I feel if you’re not on the road a lot and decided to splurge, I personally say go ahead but when you get back from the road go back to your routine. If you’re going to be on the road a lot, like myself then you have to make a plan and work with what you have, if not you may gain twice as much.

***************************************************************

News:  I decided not to post my daughters exercise and workout routine. She is also on the path of eating well and exercise; mostly she eats what I eat with the exception of a couple of things here and there. She eats every 4 hours, drinks plenty of water more than 8 glasses a day, and eats all her fruits and vegetables. I make sure she does her exercise by letting her run around in the park, playing her dance central for kids, sports and soon she will take swim classes. At this time I decided not to post her results.

 

Wish you the best,

Taking back my life. Even if my world is upside down, it will be an organized upside down world.

Hi everyone,

I know it’s been awhile since I posted my Monday, weekly workouts. It’s no surprise that I been derailed. Being that it’s the summer (BBQ’s, Birthdays, beaches, amusement parks, etc.), the everyday responsibilities (working, appointments, home cleaning, cooking, everyday essentials shopping, etc.) and the unfortunates emergency (hospitals, deaths, family crisis, etc.). It’s so easy to derail yourself from your goals.

One of my biggest problem and mainly the reason I haven’t sat down and scheduled my time (even if there has been an emergency). I was never like this not too long ago I would schedule, write everything down and I always been on point of everything. Unfortunate I let a little nasty depression turn my world upside down. Well not anymore, I’m taking back my life. Even if my world is upside down, it will be an organized upside down world…haha.

**First order of business, Monday weekly workout will be back on 7/8/13 with another post my family weekly workout. **

Instead of doing a Monday weekly workout today, I decided to dedicate this post on how I’m organizing myself (this would be the first of many but it will be posted on a different day, the day will be coming soon**) I know I have to schedule myself in order to reach my many goals, which one major goal is to lose weight and improve my health.  So here it goes my first step:

First, I’ve taken a piece of paper and pen and wrote down the days of the week. From there I wrote the daily routine of the week which is work schedule and hours, workout routine, Emily learning path, Joey work hours and schedule, cleaning, coupons, and church this is my week overview (photo shown below).

It take only a paper & a pen

I wanted to hang my week overview where either I or Joey can see. It’s great when I write my week in details on my planner. Now I wanted to make it look nice, so I made a template on excel, decorated it and color coded it for that particular person such as Emily is pink, I’m purple and Joey is blue. Now it’s hanging above my desk on a bulletin board (photo show below).

weekly overview Weekly overview

Last of scheduling myself, I write my weekly schedule on my planner (which I made). Keep in mind some is already pre-written in my planner. My planner consists of a monthly two page overview and a week on two pages. Everything that I write on my planner is color coded; I find it is easier to find what I’m looking for. My color code is red for bills, pink is for Emily, Purple is anything that pertains to me, Blue is Joey, Orange is Birthdays, Lavender is for Little Jomie Creations, my blog and youtube (photos are show below). I write everything else in pencil and black ink for important information that I don’t want to erase easily.

Planner Planner Planner

For an added note: I just wrote and overview for Lil Jomie Creations, this blog and youtube. All of my details and information in a separate binder but that is for another day, another post.

****Please note that what I have been writing is my personal view you can either change certain things to benefit yourself. Everyone is different, only you know what works for you and if you’re doing this for the first time trial and error will help you make the best schedule for yourself****

 

If you have any tips that you would like to share I would love to hear them, I’m open minded, I’m willing to try. I’m always looking for the best way to perfect my system (even though we know their is nothing perfect…hahaha but a system that will work for me and my loved ones).

Happy Scheduling,

Jomarie

  •  Force myself to work out on the days that I work.
  • Drink 8 cups of water daily and limit my soda intake to one can a week.
  • Make and eat snacks in between my meals like fruits, vegetables and/ or nuts.
  • Eat every 4 hours.

***************************************************************

Tip of the week:  After reviewing the last few weeks with my daily workout routines, eating, and every other routine outside of this I realize I NEED to do a schedule. Which is something I know from the beginning and I always had a habit that I start and never quite stick to it. Either today or tomorrow (it might take a little longer to find a right schedule) I will be sitting and making a schedule that involves with myself and my family. My tip is to sit down and jot down everything that you and your family (if you do have one) do on a regular basis, and outside of your regular routine.  Take a calendar and jot down the time of your regular routine after you finish with the regular plan on your workout routine, what time you’re going to exercise, the time you’re going to eat, what type of workout and your meal plan.

 

This is a quick tip to start of your schedule for your everyday life to mesh with your workouts. Now I’m starting to realize that this type of scheduling deserve its own post. So, for the next  few days I will be making my schedule that involves with my daily ( and my family) routine and get this ball rolling, I believe this will help me to lose weight and keep track of everything that going on with my life. Keep checking back or follow my blog (that way you can receive an email when I post my article) and I will give a detail information how I schedule myself with photos. Hopefully by that time I will have my youtube channel up and I will post it as well.

***************************************************************

News: Starting next Monday, I will be posting two post one for my weekly workout but also one for my family weekly workout. I feel that the whole journey of living a better and healthy lifestyle should be involved with the whole family. So, you will be able to follow my journey and the journey of my family in two different posts. I do apologize in advance for the two posts in one day; Monday is the start of the new week for all of us when it comes to our workout.

 

Wish you the best,

Jomarie

  • Make and eat snack in between my meals like fruits, vegetables and/ or nuts.
  • Eat every 4 hours.

***************************************************************

Tip of the week: This week’s tip is pretty small but it can impact in a big way. Snacks, eating snacks between meals will help your metabolism running throughout the day. It helps control your appetite that way when you finally sit down and eat you don’t over eat or eat something that you shouldn’t. Making a snack doesn’t take long to make and it can be anything you like to eat and help those cravings that we seem to have on the worst possible moment. If you’re craving for something sweet eat a yogurt or a piece of fruit. If you’re craving for something salty eat a handful of nuts or it can be a mixture of both. Planning on your snack can be enjoyable and fun. Plus the benefit of planning your snack will help you save money (I hear a few extra bucks for a new craft supply, haha).

 

Wish you the best,

Jomarie

***************************************************************

 

Tip of the week:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yes I know we all heard of this but still we don’t follow it. If you’re not use to eating breakfast and the thought of it make your stomachs turn start off with a piece of fruit or yogurt. Something small to get use to eating in the morning, this will help kick of your metabolism and give the boost your body and brain needs throughout the day. Eating breakfast will help control your appetite when you eat your next meal, your less likely to over eat.

 

Stay tune for an upcoming blog, it’s an update from the first weekly Monday. This is a more detailed plan that I have for me in order to lose weight. If this is your first time reading my blog or if you happen to lose your way like myself and need a fresh reminder.

 

Thank you for still being here and once again taking this trip along side with me.

My First Contest

Hello everyone!

I know, it’s been a while, it’s been very hectic these past few months. I started to focus on Lil’ Jomie Creations and I finally reached my 100th like on facebook—Hooray!

To show my appreciation, I decided to start a contest—no purchase necessary—on facebook. I want to say thank you to everyone’s support!

Here are the contest rules:

This will be a simple contest. First contest will cover the diaper cake, all you need to do is write to me, WHY, you deserve a free diaper cake, for either you or someone you know—in an inbox message—be sure to include your full name and address—or the full name and address of the person you are trying to win this for.

To those who are not expecting, and do not know of anyone expecting… You are in luck!
You can enter for your own contest as well! Lil’ Likers will have a chance to win a 3 set Journal (also known as a Day book), all you have to do is comment on this post, with your name, state, and e-mail! I will randomly pick your names from the list. This contest will only last for a week and a half, this gives everyone the opportunity to enter. Once the winners are chosen—for both contests—I will leave you a facebook message or e-mail.

No purchase necessary, Good luck to all of my Lil’ Likers!!

Stop by to Lil’ Jomie Creations’ page on Facebook, and enter for a cool prize! Don’t forget to “like” my page and spread the word.

Thank you!
