1. Do you wear glasses or contacts, if so for how long?

I've been wearing glasses since the third grade and contacts since eighth grade.

I'm not too sure about this one, I had a few, but didn't play them that often. I liked to play school more than anything, but I'd have to say....Trouble.

4. What is your favorite day of the week?

I would have to say Friday...idk why.

X's and O's

I'm really out of control with all of the V-day crafts I'm making! haha...but I love it, so that's all that matters! So here I've made some x's and o's to display around the house. Very easy!
- 2 "x" and 2 "o" chip board letters
- scrapbook paper
- any embellishments that you want
- Mod Podge
- glue gun
- scissors
First I traced each letter on whatever paper I wanted to use for that particular one. Then cut out.

Next, I used Mod Podge to glue it on.

Then, I added some embellishments. That's it...simple! All I had to buy were the letters and they were 2 for $ 1.00 at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. I love them! =]

I switched this one up a bit and used two different papers.

I'll be linking this up to these spectacular blogs:

Hoo are you?


1. Are you fond of cooking?
I love to cook, but hate cleaning up dishes! So, we tend to eat out quite a bit. My husband and I both are terrible about washing dishes! =/

2. What kind of food do you prefer eating when you are out?
It seems that we usually lean towards steak or somewhere like Chili's/Applebee's. But I love Italian and Mexican food!

3. Which do you prefer, sweet or salty?
I have an absolute terrible sweet tooth!

4. Where is the last place you ate out at?
The last place we actually went to eat was Outback, I believe. However, we ordered pizza last night!

5. What's for dinner tonight?
Well, I broke down and made dinner, because we got about 6 inches of snow today and hubby didn't want to go get anything. I made something along the lines of an enchilada lasagna. I don't really know what it's called, but it was yummy. And we also had Mexican rice! =]

Epsom salt V-day candle

Check out my new weekend link party "wonderful weekend" going on now until Sunday night! Let's get the word out and get some more link ups! =]

Here's another easy Valentine's idea that anyone can do!


- candle

- Epsom salt

- glitter (optional)

- Mod Podge or glue

- ribbon, decals (optional)

- clear coat

I added about 3-4 tablespoons of Epsom salt into a bowl and added some pink glitter to jazz it up a bit. I started painting on the Mod Podge to the desired height of the candle. Then sprinkle your salt/glitter mix onto the candle. Keep doing this all around the candle.

Next, I added some pink, fuzzy string that I had to jazz it up a little more.

Finally, I sprayed the salt/glitter with a clear coat, I'm hoping this will help it stay on longer. Then I added a single white heart to give it even more jazz! This is extremely easy and cheap! I already had the candle and string from about 8 Valentines ago. All I had to buy was the salt. Simple and cute. Enjoy!

I'll be posting this tutorial at these fine blogs:
