Shelves, Owls yada yada

Wow! It’s almost been 3 months since my last post, that is sad. I keep telling myself to type something new but then always forget & go do something else. Anyway, I found out about this newish website called Pinterest. You ca find tons of crafts, home decor ideas, pretty clothes, jewelry, DIY stuff. You make these boards so you can go back and see what you found and it’s all organized and doesn’t take up any space (which I love). It’s also super addicting , so be careful and be prepared to waste your time on there. haha

Anyway I wanted to share a cool shelf I made awhile back. My friend Shawn who does tile had these crates that the tile came in. He asked if I wanted them and I said yes. Then came up with this:

All I did was stain it and put it together how I wanted. I didn’t attach the pieces together so I can arrange it if needed. Great for magazines!

Now to owls.I was on pinterest last night and saw these owls made from toilet paper tubes. It took me a couple minutes and came up with this cute guy:

You bend one end in to make the ears and then draw any owl face you want. You can also paint them, add glitter, sequins, or just leave them plain. Maybe even make it a decoration for a Christmas tree?

Hello world!

So I decided to finally start a blog to share what I like, inspires me and just some cool stuff I had to share with whomever reads this.

A little about what I like..hmm lets see. For one I love clothes, I even work in a clothing boutique. Talking about my work, I finally caved in ( well not just yet) I’m going to buy this white lace Free People skirt I’ve been eying. It went on sale not too long ago and finally decided to try it on and loved it. Its just very pretty, romantic and its is actually long on me. Hard to find when you are 5’11. Very dangerous working there sometimes haha

I also like DIY things and crafts. I’ve been trying to find apple crates to put in my kitchen so I could use them as extra shelves but I haven’t had luck yet. I ended up finding these wicker type baskets and hung them up for now. Worked well and looks nice.

I like cooking – Ill share photos and recipes!

I also like saving $$, who doesn’t right? If your lucky maybe I’ll share some tips on how to get free full size products/coupons/samples.

This week I did pretty well. 20 pk bandaids, carefree pantyliners, 4 – 12oz body washes, carmello bar, 3 suave styling products & free philly swirl ice cream bars!

I guess thats its for now. I’ll be posting some stuff I’ve been wanting to share so..here I go 🙂
