Back-To-School: Ways to Make Lockers Functional & Fab!

Back-To-School: Ways to Make Lockers Functional & Fab!

You know you’ve found something pretty awesome when you start wishing you had a locker…. as an adult! 🙂 LockerLookz, a company dedicated to making that tiny space students call home (when they’re at school), has amazing stuff to help make that space inviting, organized, and awesome!  Chandeliers for the ceiling, shag carpet for the bottom, wallpaper for the walls & door, curtains for the outside, and magnets, bins, mirrors, …….they have it all!  Of course – If you’re strapped for cash – you can make a few items from the inspiration!    

The Easiest Way to Make a Betta Fish & Peace Lily Aquarium in a Vase!

The Easiest Way to Make a Betta Fish & Peace Lily Aquarium in a Vase!

Today’s blog embodies the main reason I blog…..It involves the two things that sometimes get in my way when I get one of my ideas…….1. When I research it on the internet, sometimes I can’t find anyone who will give me a “concise” set of directions that includes ALL I need to know. 2. There are folks out their who are super serious about the topic & can only give me the “rich man’s version” or the “I only feed my carnivorous plants organic bugs I pick from my own bug sanctuary” lecture (in a snooty tone, no doubt). Finally – 3. After I get my research together, certain things were left out – like the difficulty of one of the steps. Here’s how my Betta Fish/Peace Lily Aquarium in a Vase project went!   What You need: ~A...

Redneck Solo Cup Goblet: Unique Ways to Serve Summer Beverages!

Redneck Solo Cup Goblet: Unique Ways to Serve Summer Beverages!

I don’t know if you have seen the “Redneck Wine Glass,” but it’s basically a candlestick holder with a mason jar on top secured with  hot glue, super glue – whatever will make it stick.  I first saw them last year at a music festival being sold by a vendor for about $10.  They would be super cute for a picnic/outdoor gathering. Plus, if you keep the lid handy, guests can keep bugs out of their drinks! Just recently, I came across something similar, but possibly for “Dirt Poor Rednecks.”  It was just a solo cup glued to the top of a candlestick holder with some twine tied in a bow around the base.  It was about $14!  This is hilarious, because those glass candlestick holders can be bought for a $1 at your local dollar...

Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Boo Boo Bling: Really Makes It “All Better!”

Recently I was visiting someone’s home, and she lent me a band-aid.  My flip flops, as cute as they were, had rubbed a blister on my toe.  She reached in the cabinet, and said “What do you want – Toy Story or Cars?” I picked “Cars” (I think), and quickly put it on.  It certainly did the job, but I noticed it looked like a sticker!  My mom even asked me, “Why do you have a sticker on your foot?”  I realized I probably have had 2 fun band-aids in my life – a hot pink one in college, and this “Cars” themed bandage.  How fun was this?! I can see how these colorful cover-ups cheer up little ones after accidents. That “Cars” sticker reminded me of another band-aid incident that...

How to Personalize Glasses with Chalkboard Paint

The summer is all about refreshing beverages that “beat the heat.”  It’s also about having parties to systematically beat the heat in mass quantities!  🙂  If you want to save money, help your guests remember where their glasses are, and serve your drinks in unique glasses that prompt coversation – look no further! This is a project that will be utilized year-round for all types of get-togethers! What you need: $4-6 Chalkboard spray paint:  I used KRYLON (picture below) found at local art/craft stores & home improvement stores like – JOANN’S, HOME DEPOT, HOBBY LOBBY, LOWE’s,….. Look around – you might find different colors you’d like other than black…. Glasses:  If you’re strapped...

The Pink Box: Organize Your Tools

The Pink Box: Organize Your Tools

After mall-shopping for an extensive amount of time on a mission to find a dress, I walked into a store & heard a man say to his wife over my shoulder: “Ook aire, ay e-uhm got pank raynch-es!” ……Yes. I am from the south, and if you haven’t heard it in my video blogs & demos, I have a southern accent.  As a Southern Belle, I appreciate  all accents – especially the southern accent – especially when I hear phrases like that! I turned around & there in the main pathway of the department store was a large TOOL CHEST that looked like the typical craftsman setup, but very….PINK!  Hammers, screwdrivers, saws, tool belts, drills, tape measures, and yes… even “pink wrenches!”   This is a...
