Neffy’s Baby Shower!

I couldn’t wait to make something for this shower!    I decided on diaper bouquets and I painted an umbrella much to my hubby’s dismay.

Just a cute diaper.


You know I can’t resist my aluminum foil. Sorry, I went to the craft store and they wanted $5.74 for one styrofoam ball! I had to keep thinking…keep thinking… And the pack of skewers were $4.00. Keep thinking. Luckily I had the floral picks already, and they were long enough. I got two sizes.

  The umbrella is well…very artsy.  We are trying to figure out how Neffy is going to get it home.  We also decided it would make a great guest book.  I just give them the sharpie and they signed the umbrella.

Next time I know to bring small things to craft and share. I did get to read a book called the Secret. It made this trip joyous.

Oh My Air Freshner Doll Pictutorial- Um…Moderately Easy

I can never get enough of these dolls. They look great everywhere and make nice gifts. I’m willing to make a kit for $10.00 plus shipping for anyone that wants one. The kit includes a pre-made skirt, hat, arm, face, and some leftover fabric.  You just need  glue gun, and a Renuzit Air Freshner in the fragrance of your choice. If you want to go it all on your own, I just ask that you please send me a picture or comment so I can enjoy your creativity.

A fresh face is always so nice to start with.

The Tablecloth Banner

I had to try this one for the 12 year old’s Birthday. She wanted purple and yellow decorations…She’s sleep right now, and this will be a suprise for her.

It wasn’t as easy as it looked, but it was a lot of fun. I recommend using a sturdy string and maybe 2 nails. We didn’t want nails in the wall, hence a little Duct tape was used for sturdiness. It fell down a couple of times and we failed to open 2 of the tableclothes completely, hence short, long, short long…Uh Oh. Back to the drawing board.

Can’t Wait to Try it Out….

Ice cream in cookie cutters to eliminate scooping? Genius. Why did it take so long for Pinterest to evolve?

Glass Vases-Who said you can’t paint them?

Don’t ever tell me what can’t be done as far as dIY.. Trust me that’s like telling me..go ahead… I got tired of trying to make stuff with stuff that didn’t “match”. So I made it match. And baby, a can of gold spray paint goes a long way. Yes indeed. And yes, I flecked my kitchen cabinets and changed the knobs, and yes, I painted the aluminum siding on my house much to the dismay of the neighbors. I did it again just to mess with them. And the week after, they painted theirs a similar color to mine. I miss them dearly for letting me just do my thing.

Good ole Air Freshner Dolls.

One of my favorite outfits that I own. I am kind of obsessed with Cheetah print and the color black. I don’t like to stand out much and this outfit was just perfect. I pull up the skirt to my waist and tuck in the shirt. Somewhere I have a black bow with the exact same print but I can’t find it anywhere. Outfit of the day, I guess 🙂

Skirt- Thrift Store, no tag.

Shirt- Forever21

Shoes- Not sure, they were a gift.
