Totally Looks Like

When I was doing errands today, there was a truck in front of me that had cut trees in it.  I thought one of the trees totally looked like a face.  At a stop light, I took a picture.  And, when I got home, I did some googling to see if I could find a face that matched.

I kinda thought it looked like a chubby child, and the thought came to me that it looked like a cherub. Google image 'cherub painting' and it was on the first page........I thought it was SPOT ON.  Kinda freaky spot on.

This is the original (yes, I flipped it and reversed it)

Shaving Cream and Listerine

Shaving cream and listerine - odd combo, right?  Well, that is the combo for a foot soak for cracked heels.

I love pinterest, and found this "recipe" for getting rid of dead skin on your feet.  I have horrible feet, which is why there will be no before/after pics lol

I as with most things on pinterest, I just HAD to try it.  And, you know what - I think I got pretty good results.  It might be fair to say that I MAY have gotten the same results if I just wrapped my feet in a warm wet towel.  But, my feet really did tingle, so I think it did something more than just water.

I used gerenic listerine in the original kind, the yellow/gold one.  I used cheap shaving cream, barbasol, because I sure as hell was not gonnna use the expensive stuff lol.

I will probably do it again :)

High School Graduate AND a Kindergarten Graduate

Wow, this year, I will have a graduate from High School AND a graduate from Kindergarten.  It is so crazy that Colin is graduating from High School.  I won't lie and say it was an easy road.  But, I am so proud of him.

His actual graduation is not until next Sat, so I will share pics then.

I will have a college aged kid soon.  Makes me feel really old!

Smores Pops

We are having a BBQ for Memorial Day, and I wanted to make a simple "summer" type of snack.  Smores scream summer :)

I did not make up this treat, but rather saw it on pinterest.  Ah, pinterest, what would I do without you??

Smores Pops are a chocolate coated marshmallow covered in graham cracker cumbles.  And, yes - it is as easy as it sounds.  But, of course I have provided a picture tutorial.

I made 35 pops.  But, not because I ran out of ingredients, but rather, I only had 35 pop sticks.  I crushed 1/2 a box of graham crackers, but only used less than half of that.  I used about 3/4 a bag of chocolate.

Here are all my supplies - graham crackers, chocolate melts, marshmallows, pop sticks, wax paper, and my beating spoon lol.

Melt a small amount of chocolate.  I melt mine in the microwave using the defrost setting.  I stop it after 1 minute, and stir.  If needed, I put back in for about 20 seconds or so.

Pour the melted chocolate on to a piece of wax paper.  I like this method a lot since it allows a nice even coating.  I use the same method for my chocolate covered pretzels.

Put a pop stick in a marshmallow, and roll it in the melted chocolate.  Don't forget to put some on the top of the marshmallow. :)

Roll this your crushed graham crackers.  I had mine on a paper plate.

You are done!  I placed mine in a piece of styrofoam that I had from another project.

Looking yummy!

My husband did a little tasting, and he said they were so good.  I will wait until tomorrow to eat mine.

So, there you go - a super easy, super yummy summer treat

Some new things

I feel like I have totally abandoned this blog - so I am saying sorry to anyone who actually was reading it lol.

I don't know if I just don't have anything to say, or what.  I was also on an internet break as well.

But, I have changed up my shop a bit, and now I am offering custom dolls.  I am having so much fun making each doll.

So, here I am - pimping out my etsy shop - check it out :)

And some pics :)

100 Days of School Project

Every year, our school does a 100 days of school event. I know lots of schools do it.

I know a bunch of people were looking for ideas, so I thought I would share ours. We were allowed to do anything, just add 100 items to posterboard.

I sat on a chair and took picture after picture of Justin making funny faces (and eating an apple lol) If he was more cooperative, I would have done funny hats or glasses or whatever.

In the end, I got LOTS of pictures and it only took a few minutes to shoot them.
Here is the end result

I have been busy

I have not updated in such a long time - but I HAVE been busy. Lots of crafting going on. have so many pics to share, but thought it I added all of them, you would be bored to death lol.

So, here are some things that I have been working on. Dresses, outfits, bags, aprons, etc

Crafting is kinda calming to me, so I guess I needed a lot of calming lately.
