Tasty Tuesday: Prunana Smoothie

Let's make something Tasty!

Need something healthy, satisfying, and sweet?  Try this hearty smoothie--great after a morning workout or as a daytime snack.  The recipe is super simple!

                                                            3/4 Cup of Prunes
                                                            1 Banana
                                                            1 Cup of Water

You've got quite a few options with this, too!  You can cut up and freeze your bananas first to give it a frosty smoothness, or you can add some ice for a crunchy chill.  You can even substitute a different liquid, such as soy, almond, or dairy milk (but it's pretty darn rich with just water).

Cut, measure, throw it in the blender!

While there's controversy about the health benefits of cinnamon, some studies suggest that it can help lower cholesterol and blood sugar.  Add it in for a flavor boost and bonus benefits!

Blend everything on high until it's reached your desired consistency.  Ta-da~!

1 Serving Contains:
                                                            1378mg Potassium
                                                            12.1g Fiber
                                                            4.3g Protein
                                                            64g Sugar (it's natural, but still a lot, so be careful!)

Add some whey protein as a bonus!

Lover's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day, Dolls!

We've been so busy, we didn't do much for V-Day this year, but here's a few snaps ♥

It was freezing outside, but we tried to kawaii

Rin's theme was mixed message hearts.  Like Sweethearts candies, but with sour words.

Grimmy did a lovely box of chocolates, with XOXO tags.

And of course we did our nails!

Overall, we were pretty pleased with our little sets, so we might make full collections like these for sale in the future!  What do you think?

Have a LOVE-LY day! ♥ ♥

Around the House: Moving the Workshop Pt.1

Moving the Workshop, Pt. 1

So...we're super excited about these summer collections we've already got lined up, and still have some things to finish up for spring.  The creative juices are totally flowing and we're super pumped--

--Buuuuuuuuuut first thing's first: gotta get organized!  As we mentioned in our first post of 2015, we're moving our workshop again.  It will still be at Grimmy's place, but we're going from the smallest room in the house to the biggest. It's very exciting getting to arrange and decorate the new room, and we definitely need the space, but we know it's gonna be a lot of hard work, too.

Some things we'll definitely have to do:
     - take down and re-install wall-shelving
     - move free-standing shelf cases
     - move our huge ridiculous solid-oak-or-something table, unless we find a replacement first
     - make curtains for the new room

Some things we'll probably do or want to do:
     - paint walls and other solid surfaces
     - reupholster furniture
     - build/assemble some custom fixtures

And, of course we gotta do some shopping...
     - some cute, but most importantly ergonomic chairs
     - some frames to display awesome art we've accumulated
     - cork boards and dry erase boards

Eventually, after we get the basics sorted, we'll round things out with cute office utilities and trinkets (because we don't have enough trinkets), but one step at a time...

We've got our classic hch playlist pumped up, chock full of high-energy essentials like Perfume and Capsule, and we're ready to make some waves.  Coming out of the holidays, it's been a bit difficult to gauge progress, but hopefully we'll soon be able to bust out the 2015 calendar and make plans!
