Pinterest Strikes Again!

Since joining Pinterest in January I have cooked, baked and crafted my way into a bad habit! LOL! I spend too much money on trying stuff, but I am loving every minute of it! I have been off for two days and I have completed two projects. But they were so much fun and filled some time where I would usually just be bored. To my friend Monico...THANKS for sending me an invite!!!

After seeing all of the magnetic makeup boards inspired by this one, of course I wanted to make my own. I took a trip to Goodwill, simply to browse. I don't even know what I went it there for. But lo and behold I found a frame. And inside of that frame was already a fabulous piece of fabric! I started taking it apart before I remembered to take a picture. So, here is the picture of it deconstructed.


I was a little saddened when I went into Lowe's and they told me that they don't cut sheet metal. So I ended up having to get 2 pieces that were pre-cut, but they fit perfectly inside of the frame.

A little spray adhesive, wood glue (I broke the frame) and voila here we have a new magnetic makeup board...Now the question is...will it hold all of my makeup? Probably not! But that's OK too. I can at least keep my favorites up there. I bought a roll of self-adhesive magnet but for some of my bigger items I need to get stronger magnets. I went to 3 different stores and they are cheaper at Walmart...I just have to go back and get them. But here is the result! I'm super happy with it. And this fabulous fabric goes wonderfully with the prints in my bedroom.


So, today in my boredom, I decided just to go and take a walk around Michael's. You know, just to see if anything stuck out at me. And I really have no clue why the pink ribbon called my name! But it did. So I decided that my front door needed to be dressed up a little bit for the spring. So, I made a wreath :). My fool self...didn't buy enough ribbon and I knew I would need more...but I was able to cover the naked side of the wreath properly with the felt...um...flowers lol. I think it's pretty and it makes me happy just to look at it! And of course I forgot to take a picture before I started...




I would like to personally thank all the people that follow me and those that I follow for inspiring me...and making me broke! Happy Crafting! :)

**UPDATE**

Here is a picture of the completed makeup board. I finally got my most used makeup all magnetized and on the board. I found the little containers at the Dollar Tree and they already had magnets on them...now if I could just keep people from trying to take my lip gloss!!!

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
