Some fun finds...

I made a little trip to SLC last night to the Apple Store with my sis.  I wandered around for a bit while she was getting the heart-breaking news that her Mac had officially... died.  {tear}  That is a good reminder for me to start backing everything up on mine.  Her's was only a year older than mine, which makes mine about 6 years old...I'm really scared now!

Anyhow, while I was wandering around, I found some fun finds.  I didn't feel like trying any clothes on, so I was looking at other stuff:

I found some fun little bows for the girls at Forever 21.  They were cheap and I love how different they are.  If you're going to be participating in the Bow Exchange, that's a great place to shop!

I love walking through Urban Outfitters, they have such random little trinkets there!  I found some fun fridge accessories that I was pretty stoked about:
 Another fun find: old pics of my hubby and me!  I was unpacking a few more boxes and found some fun pictures.  How about that one of us in Jr. High where I'm about 6 inches taller than him!!
I've got a few more things to blog about within the next few days so stay tuned!

"This is not a chain letter"...

Many weeks ago, I received a letter from a friend that read the following:

This is a book exchange. That's right, a book exchange! Send one book to the child listed below, then move your child up to the top line.  Then send a copy of this letter to six friends, and you should end up receiving 36 books back, and you only send one out!  This isn't a chain letter. Just a letter for fun!If you can't do it in one week, please notify me, as it is unfair to the children who are participating and are waiting for their own books. . . . Seldom does anyone drop out because, as you know, children love to receive mail as well as

Please don't spoil the fun by stopping the flow of books for the children. Please join us, but if you can't please let me know as soon as possible.

Some of you may have done this before as well.  I usually don't love chain letters (let's be honest, this IS a chain letter), but this sounded so much fun!  So, I sent my letters out and figured, "if I only get one or two books back, it will still be worth it".  Needless to say, I know of three of my people who didn't do it.  But I still received about 5 books and am still waiting to get more.  Charli loves getting packages in the mail!

This gave me the idea to start a different letter.  There are so many things that you could do, but I decided to start a 'Bow' exchange letter.  I mean, who has daughters and doesn't love getting new bows??  So,

         ...Sorry for this interruption, but I had to take a brief intermission.  I smelled Vicks vaporub and went       to check on the girls.  They were rubbing it on my walls, and found the almost-new bottle empty now!  I guess that's what I get for blogging while they're both awake and board!  Just thought that was funny and had to share!

It's a "Bow Exchange"!!
Okay, back to what I was saying.  If anyone wants a copy of this bow letter and wants to be one of the firsts on the list, please e-mail me (, with your address, and I will send you the letter and you can start it with your friends.  The benefit of being the first to send this letter is that you won't have to send any bows, you just send the letter out to your friends!  So be the first!  :)

Hope to be hearing from you!

Goodie, Goodie, Gumdrops!!

 Today, my friends, is
National Gumdrop Day!
Who knew?

I, among 4 other contributors, was asked to create a project using gumdrops for a Studio 5 project.
I came up with a great centerpiece for Spring/Easter:
  Here is what you need:

Tree branches
Spray paint
Hot glue
Gumdrops, of course!

First, spray paint your branches to your desired color.  I chose silver.  It would be fun to do a crackle paint, don't you think?
Fill your small vase with beans and place your branches inside.  Then place your small vase into your large one.
 Separate (or don't, it's up to you), your gumdrops into color schemes. 
 Layer your colors into your large vase surrounding your small vase
 Next, hot glue all your cute, little gumdrops on the branches of your tree.  A good tip to use is to glue the gumdrops where you see previous growth from leaves before.

It's fun to change up the vases.  I put my small vase into this antiqued white vase, then set it on a platter with gumdrops on for serving.
My little Charli got her hand on a few!
