1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: April 20, 2014 11:21:23 PM

What spurred me to make the change (though I didn't eat a lot of red meat anyway) was hearing about the health benefits, and then watching a few documentaries - first Forks over Knives, and then Vegucated, which made it impossible for me NOT to do it. 

I'm also reading Main Street Vegan by Victoria Moran right now, which is really interesting, too, and has some great-sounding recipes. Smiley

You sound like me. I loved that book! Another great one is The Kind Life by Alicia Sylverstone.

I've always been a big foodie, but was never a huge fan of meat. I never liked anything but cheese on my pizza since I could eat pizza and I had to be in the mood for a steak. I've been officially vegetarian since this past January, but it's really been happening for some time. It all started when I watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead"...and then bought my first juicer the next day. I also began incorporating green smoothies in my daily life. I found a 30 day challenge that sent a new recipe every day and loved it. I then too part in a 14 raw food reset and although it was challenging, I felt amazing!

I'm a documentary junkie when it comes to Netflix, so once I saw Fat, Sick and Near,y Dead, I ended up watching the rest. My journey began for health, but as an animal lover, the animal cruelty factor was inevitable. I would love to be vegan one day and I eat 99% vegan at he. My struggle is that I live in a very small town full of franchise restaraunts and steakhouses. It's almost impossible to eat out and be vegan. Baby steps and one day at a time Smiley

Oh, God!  Me too!  That quote's been haunting me since I read it.

The "I can't remember to forget you" card made me cry a little... ahh.. hormones... you are not my friend.

I chose that quote for the ATC because it is not only one of my favorites, but I think it is so romantic and yet heartbreaking at the same time.  Also, if you've seen the movie Memento that it's from it's one of the scenes that makes me tear up. 

I'm glad it stuck with you both Smiley

I'm so sorry that it has taken me a few days to post pics, but my laptop cable died and I haven't had 90 bucks to get a new one.  My boyfriend was nice enough to bring his over to my house to save me Smiley

Here is my absolutely STUNNING hoop from ZadishaLuxe! She chose the color pink from my list and also that I love vintage pinups.

My camera does not do it justice....she actually stitched barrel curls into the hair!  The quote in the banner is from Marylin Monroe.  It says "A sex symbol becomes a thing.  I just hate being a thing" which is one of my favorite quotes (and something that all young girls should be taught....could change the world) that she discovered through our PMs.  ZadishaLuxe, if you have  a better pic, please post it.....this was the best my camera would do!

Thank you so much.  This is amazing for my first hoop swap and I just hope that you like the one I am making you. Smiley

So, after tossing around some design ideas and feeling quite frustrated that none struck me as awesome enough for a hoop, one just came to me out of the blue about 20 minutes ago!! Smiley  I drew it up and was super excited with the outcome....only to realize that I don't yet have a transfer pencil nor a way to get to Michael's until after 6.  It's Sunday and they will be closed then, BUT I work right next door to them so this problem will be fixed tomorrow.  I just REALLY wanted to stitch today Sad Oh well.

I just hope that ZidishaLuxe likes the design.

I'd love to see the hat, that would be awesome!

There are scenes in the movie that are right from the book (example: when they pan around the apartment and list "Wallace's bed, Wallace's TV, Wallace's computer...Scott's coat, which is almost the exact cell in the book) and I really like that you feel like you are in a comic or video game.
