Since I was a little girl, I have always loved nail polish. I remember have a quite big collection throughout middle school and high school, except for fun colors, because my parents didn’t like me having funky colored nails. When I married my husband, I moved from Alabama to Alaska and my stash of polish got threw away. Most were old anyways. While living in Alaska, I only had 2 colors. Huge shocker…I know. One was a shimmery neutral and the other a magneta shade, it’s not like any saw my feet there anyways since they were always in thick socks and snow boots. Fast foward to this year…my addiction to nail polish is back full swing. What do I blame?? Being the only female in a house of boys. Every time I go to Sally Beauty Supply, Target, or Wal-Mart, I come back with at least one polish, if not two. Let’s not even talk about Amazon, there are TONS on there I’d like to have but sometimes shipping is just ridiculous on one little bottle of polish on there! So here is my collection from the past year. Just a little FYI most of these were bought in the last 2-3 months. *enter shock face here* Continue reading
I have TONS of felt lying around and have had NO clue what in the world I was going to do with it. I googled different felt flower tutorials and got a few ideas. After thinking for awhile, I decided to just wing it and do my own version. I’m not sure if there is one like mine out there ( I’m sure there is) but everyone likes something that is easy and fairly quick to do. 🙂 Especially when you have two wild little boys like I do. So here is what I will call my “round felt flower”. I need better names for these, huh? Continue reading
Since I was introduced to Scentsy at a neighbor’s party in 2009, it has become an addiction of mine. Since having kids, candles aren’t really an option in my house. I have 2 wild and crazy boys and Scentsy was like a dream come true! Scentsy are lead free, wick free and flameless! The wax is warmed by light bulbs inside the warmers, it stays a low temp so it won’t burn you if you or your kids happen to spill it on their skin. I love that there are so many scents to choose from. They all smell great and last a long time.
If you are wondering what BBMB is, it is “Bring Back my Bar”. Twice a year Scentsy brings back 20 retired scents for ONE month only. I have an awesome consultant who was selling sample packs (1 cube of each BBMB scent) and I bought one. Below are my thoughts on each scent, in no particular order. Continue reading
You will need:
- hot glue gun and extra glue sticks
- child’s cup
- pony tail holder
Use a child’s cup to trace 6-7 circles on the wrong side (back) of your fabric. I used 7 for this flower. Also cut a smaller circle from matching/coordinating felt, it will be used as the back for your flower. Continue reading
I’m a 26 year old military wife and stay-at-home mom to two little boys. My boys are 2.5 and 15 months old, they’re are almost exactly 18 months apart. I’m very crafty, love to cook and bake. I love photography and my Nikon d3000. I’m not very good, but I’m still learning 🙂 I love make-up and have an insane addiction to nail polish.
I’m also new to the whole blogging thing, so please forgive me if I babble or make no sense 🙂
