The Journey: next step with the Cameo 3

Image
Next StepAfter many months of research and bouncing back in forth with making the cost logical in my brain, this amazing balls machine finally arrived Monday. I've literally have become insta-obsessed. I'm not quit sure why I wasn't watching all these tutorials prior to arrival. But none the less, I'm more and more amazed at all the things this cameo silhouette three can do.
I got this bundle on Amazon because it seem to be the smartest buy for my purpose. (which is decorating, signs, tumblers, etc. personalization basically) Reviews are mixed for the top two popular brands Cricut and the Silhouette. The majority seemed to love the Cricut machine due to it being more user friendly. However, it don't have the option to use offline. That was a huge deciding factor for me since wifi/internet isn't always available.
I expected the set up to be long and aggravating due to the reviews. Happy to report, it was not. After downloading the software (no disc), creating an acc…

Hat Rack Review

Excessive hat solutionSuper excited to get the chance to review this product free.Y'all know organization is my thing so when this arrived I couldn't get it up fast enough.  The fact that it said no tools needed, tickled me since finding my fiance's tools posed a huge aggravation. He never puts things back.

The box included 2 hanger straps ( 8 hat holder per strap) and two hanger secures to place on the door. (One for the top and one for the bottom) Check out this short video for the contents.


After I got everything out , I was excited to finally get these hats an appropriate place of there own. However, I placed the hook on the top first and quickly realize that was not the way to do this. Since it was hard to tighten to the appropriate length as well as hold it in place while I place the other secure thing on the bottom.
So I tried another way, bottom first. I ended up having to grab a stool since in so short. But it made adjusting the strap easier. 
Finally, it was up.  Spa…

Confession Time

Many of you know I suffer for many issues, OCD being one the  major ones. Which makes this video a little awkward.

 That's not even half really. I have separated some into categories AND  lets not even get into the freebies I have accumulated. I still have plenty after even donating to our local food pantry that provides more than just food.
What do you tend to hoard?

Sliding Pictures Solution

Image
Decorating the house has been a priority to me since I am basically here 24-7. But committing to an idea and finding the money to do what I envision has posted some hurdles. I will say this much, I am totally happy with the way the bedroom has turned out (minus the fact that it totally needs some new paint on the walls). The decor and theme has me wanting to hide there quite frequently or maybe it's the kiddos that have me that way. Lol.
Pictured is the wall above our night stands. As you can clearly see, the picture keeps sliding. As someone with OCD, it was driving me mad. Quick fix : add some glue to the backing to prevent sliding. BAM! Fixed and now I can focus on something other than sliding this straight daily.

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware, to bags, to natural products, to self defense, the direct sellers community is rapidly growing to many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.

Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices where not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense? 
I have tested many products over the years and naturally I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them. If they do they take forever to show and by then I have lost interest.

Let me back up a tad and tell you about what lead me to my discovery. If you have ever dealt with someone in direct sells or do that line of work, then you know …
