Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be
FITness NOT THINness
"My name is Jess, I’m the creator of Fat Babes. I’m 26 years old and I love my big, fat body. It took many years of struggle to get to where I am today and I wouldn’t take back a single moment of it. I want girls around the world to know that it is possible be fat and happy. I’m proud to be a Fat Babe!!! FAT BABES!"
If you’re looking for a super basic newborn hat pattern to knit up for someone tiny and new in your life, this is it. I’m pretty sure that each of these took me about 15 minutes to knit. Included are instructions for the top-knot, but you can also leave your hat plain or add a pom-pom. These are perfect baby shower or new baby gifts, and they’d also be great for newborn portrait sessions.
An old picture of a Beatles jam session contains a man who looks almost exactly like Matt Smith’s Doctor. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. If I had a box that gave me access to all of time and space, chilling with the Beatles would be pretty high up on my list of things to do. I’m surprised it took The Doctor until his eleventh generation to get around to it. Steven Moffat is pretty excited about the photo too. “Bloody
“…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6, NIV) Sometimes when God is doing a work in our lives, it can begin to feel a little uncomfortable. We may encounter people who are hard to get along with or have circumstances that seem beyond our control. When this happens, instead of complaining, getting sour or trying to change everything around you, why don’t you look deep inside and say, “Lord, thank You for doing a work in me.” See, I’ve learned that God is more interested in changing me than He is in changing my circumstances. If I choose to stay sour because I’m not getting my way or discouraged because things aren’t happening on my time table, that’s going to keep me right where I am. If you want to see change, if you want to see God open up new doors, the key is to bloom right where you’re planted. You can’t wait until everything gets better before you decide to have a good attitude. You have to be the best that you can be right where you are. When you bloom where you’re planted, you’re allowing God to work in you, and He will be faithful to complete what He’s started in you!
God is my strength!
I did this pose of my boys about 7 years ago. It is a timeless photograph. I love this pose! Gorgeous picture by Brooke Bikneris~
Four secrets for a cleaner house. "I know a disorderly house might not bother everyone, but truth be told, MY stress levels go UP when my house is a mess. I feel more anxious. I’m less fun. I get overwhelmed and can’t focus. When mama is feeling crazy, nobody’s happy, right? So what are my secrets to a cleaner house?....come see!"
This molecule of serotonin (a neurotransmitter) is on Allison’s ribs. She says, “I got it for a number of reasons. 1- Because I suffer from depression and anxiety. 2- It’s something my body relies so critically on, and I felt like if I got it tattooed on me I would forever have the right amount to be okay. 3- I’m a science major—I plan on going to medical school—and I love science.
“One of my favorite things is when Regina says, ‘Everyone thinks I’m the Evil Queen, even my son. Let me die as Regina,’” Kitsis says of the season finale. “This is before they took her son, so right now, on that ship, she’ll do whatever it takes to get her son back. If that means Regina is required, she’ll be Regina, but if that means the Evil Queen is required, watch out.” - Eddy Kitsis, TV Guide
..i would love to have this type of impact on someone..but for the true and positive reasons..not for the ignorant and negative..many want to be an inspiration..but are too blind to realize that what they exude is greed and negativity..you cant be an inspiration when your mirror has too many smudges in it..think about it..
This is the creamiest rice pudding ever! It’s so rich and the flavors are absolutely amazing!! I’m going to be honest, up until a few months ago, rice pudding just really freaked me out. Every time I would try it because I wanted to like it for some reason? I would hate the texture of... Read More »
Every part of this is the realest shit I could ever put in words. I always believed that if a female is dedicated to the relationship & really wants to be with someone, then she would have all of these attributes. When I read this post I couldn't believe how perfect it was for me cause I've always been this type & believed so much in these words .. but I've come to realize that it really comes down to the type of person you are with. In order to have these qualities, you need someone who allows you to be them. If they don't appreciate what you do for them or how much you care, then eventually all of these qualities slowly start to fade away. You can only give so much to someone until you grow tired of You hear people talk about the "right female", well in my opinion, if this doesn't come natural to your girl then maybe you need to find somebody who brings these qualities out in you. So ladies, reread this post & think to yourself .. are you the type that he really needs?
What's True ♡
I can’t believe I’m about to give you this recipe: my precious, beloved Grandma’s cucumber salad recipe. Technically it’s my recipe because my Grandma never wrote this one down for anyone. “Just make it until it tastes right.” Easier said than done, lady. SO, I tried to make it ’til it tasted right from what°°

Quilt as you GO - this is a clearly written tutorial - and because of the fabrics chosen, it is also easy to understand via the pix. I have been looking for a tutorial this understandable. Plus her finished product looks neat/tidy. I have 16x16 dresden blocks that I finished yrs ago I quilt all my quilts on my reg machine & have been worried about putting them together and trying to quilt so I am definitely going to be trying this method of QAYG very good directions. Thank you ladies
So I was driving home from work and saw some piece of shit asshat push this dog out of their car. I pulled over to see if it was okay and he hopped up in my car and laid down. I can’t have another animal but I didn’t want to just leave him out there. I’m gonna take him to work and have him neutered and vaccinated. He’s limping on one leg, don’t know if it’s from being pushed out of a moving car or if it’s old. I’ll fix it though. Plllleeeeease share this with anyone who might be looking for a..
I want someone who won’t care that I’m incapable of sitting still, that I can’t grasp the concept of cleaning and I refuse to be ladylike, someone who realizes that half of the decisions I make are usually ones I regret, and I have the right to overreact at any given moment. I want someone who knows how completely insane I am. & he wouldn’t want me any other way
There is nothing more true than this statement! I know that if I never took the chance I did over a year ago, I would not be where I am today. I am so proud of that major step I took to better myself. Sure I doubted the whole challenge, but I felt like I had no other choice. My health was on a steady decline and I didn't even have enough energy to be there with my family. I was always tired and made excuse after excuse of why I had no time to

used Silestone’s “Lagoon” throughout because it’s a quartz material and virtually indestructible. Plus my mom really wanted the “marble” look but without the marble maintenance. BTW… I can’t say enough about using this Silestone “Lagoon” as a marble alternative. It looks amazing in person, and if you are trying to get that natural stone feel… this is the way to go.
Supposed to be a bedroom for a young jedi. if this theme is really what my son and husband wanted, THIS is how i would go about it...
quitepolished: Here’s my right hand, for anyone that wants to see it. Still need quite a bit of practice painting with my left hand as well, but I still like how this turned out. And I’m sure this design could be done with a toothpick if you don’t have a paintbrush.
Crock-pot Beef Stroganoff. HATED IT. If you do try it, don't follow the comments for making it faster. Made my meat tough as rope, really needs to be low and slow. Overall though I wasn't crazy about the sauce. Most of this went in the trash. There are better recipes out there.
Written by @Marsha Penner Penner Myrum the previous pinner: Closeup of blue iris. This is my design. I gave this to my hair dresser for a xmas gift. If you don't have the perfect fabric, paint it. Some of my flower petals have been painted with fabric dye to get just the right color.
kevindart: BIG HERO 6! It’s out today! I worked on this movie about 3 years ago doing some really early visual development and exploration work. It was a lot of fun. I’m psyched to see how it all turned out. Here’s two of my paintings I did for the movie! The bottom one appears in the ‘Art of Big Hero 6’ book which is available now at your local Amazon website!
It took me like five seconds to see this was Roy and Elysia and now I am crying. That moment in FMA has seriously haunted me to this day. When someone asked me about the show I say 'it is one of my favorite shows of all time but my heart has holes in it from the emotional beating it got.'
Calling all eggplant lovers! This is my absolute favorite hummus recipe of the moment and I’m already dreading the end of eggplant season. I made my first version of this hummus over a month ago but I didn’t get around to photographing it. I finally made it again last week (camera close by!) and we’ve …

yes its official, this quote can only mean you are a selfish, far to into your self person. If you feel your life is only about having others benefit it you need to get over yourself. How about trying to help benefit someone else's life would that be too much?! This frame of mind is why some people don't/shouldn't have kids
Morning Work Folders!! I started something similar to this during my calendar time lessons during student teaching, BUT this teacher took it UP a LEVEL! So smart and creative!! No more worrying about if something is copied or not :)!!

The Glory Lily is the national flower of Zimbabwe. It grows mostly in jungles. The flower is extremely colourful and beautiful, but never grown in home gardens. Not in my country anyway. If eaten, it is as deadly as cyanide. There are many true stories about people committing suicide by eating the yam of this plant and I myself have come across a young boy who had a fight with his parents and died by eating it. It happened many years ago.
I wanted something to quill but not anything that would take long. I have this little crimpler that I made with my sons LEGO car wheels and was just crimpling some left over strips when I got this idea of the flower. The hardest part of my quilling is the idea of what to quill. Since I don't like doing what someone has already done, I need something different always. Creating it did not take long. The strips of paper is 1/8 inch. I needed just three colours. Red, yellow and green. It isn't a difficult flower at all.
