Christmas D.I.Y Simple Done

   Christmas is my favorite time of the year. It brings a comfort to me as I decorate and finishing up my Christmas shopping. With all the money that is used on gifts, I have very little to spend on decorating. With that said, I thought I would share some ideas with you that are inexpensive and some that can be done from items you probably already have on hand. 
   Lets start with my favorite. I love snowflakes but hate the snow. That is why I moved to the south, well for the most part anyway. Snow is beautiful but to cold for me.
Wooden Clothespin Snowflake Ornaments - Easy to make homemade ornaments or gift toppers using inexpensive wooden clothespins
  
 Take the clothespins apart and arrange them together as shown. It is really simple. You can stain them or spray paint them. I am doing the white spray paint. I like  to make stuff for our tree. Just tie a string or add a hook and this project is done. You could also do a smaller one and attach it on top of this one for a layered look. Or add it to a present.



  Now who does not have cardboard laying around from various items we buy weekly. No matter how big or small this is simply adorable. Add some glitter or paint, then add an ornament for his nose or even cotton balls dyed red. Indoor or outdoor this will definitely catch the eyes of people. How cute! Several sites have free downloads for templates.



 


    This gives a new meaning to sticks. Arrange in the desired letter or shape. Then use a glue gun and pile them to make it sturdy. Use various links and there you go. I used a cardboard backing when I tried this after this picture caught my eye .This is so cute and yet so simple.




 This caught my eye because we have so many mason jars that i use for storing things. I thought about ideas before but soon dismissed them. Then I seen this. To me this is absolutely stunning. 


Go  to http://craftsbyamanda.com/2010/12/epsom-salt-luminaries-some-winter.html for the complete instructions. She has a video and it only requires a few things to do this.
  I hope this gets everyone inspired and I can not wait to hear your thoughts. Have ideas? Share them too!

     The season is gradually creeping up fast and those family get togethers are upon us. What to wear? What to wear? Natural we want to look our best but if you are anything like me, the focus is really on the kiddos. But, why spend a lot when they just out grow them fast?  Am I right? Which lead me to Crazy 8. Your children can look their best without hurting your bank account and most importantly look amazing and still be comfortable. Sound like you, then read further.
     Whether you have a boy or girl this is the "happening spot" for toddlers to kiddos size 14 (see size chart on each item). Start with those little princesses you can grab the pullover fleece and match it with some micro fleece pants (both $6).

    Mix and match from a wide variety of styles and colors. Or even add a scarf to dress it up even more. …

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 seller's community is rapidly growing in 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 were 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 and reviewed 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 wor…

Freebie Sites and their breakdown
  I often get people asking where do I get my freebies and how to do these sites work. I thought why not give those a guide to go by. I went through countless sites and being spammed before I came up with a legit list and one that does NOT spam you and that you actually get what they say.    I enjoy helping others and hope you all get lots of good freebies.
