Halloween is just a few days away. Isn’t that so exciting! I’ve whipped up two versions of Dragon’s Blood punch just in time for the Halloween party using the TEN products. One for the big ghouls and one for the little ghosts. To make it even more fun, I’ve added dry ice to get that scary potion look.
Do you have your costume ready? Your kids costumes ready? I admit, I am not completely ready yet. It will all be done by Thursday night. Everyone is wearing their costumes to school on Friday. (more…)
When I think of Fall, I think of cold nights and warm drinks. I think of crisp lazy Sunday afternoons with soft quilts. I think of friends coming over for board game nights. When we have friends and family over, I usually set our island up as a buffet with a slow cooker full of something yummy. I want people to make themselves at home and eat!
I am totally addicted to Etsy. I do have my own store, but I try to buy as much as I can on Etsy. It is the perfect place to buy teenage daughter gifts. Plus, I love buying stuff for my crafts and for my blog on Etsy. This is why I think Etsy is the perfect place for Christmas shopping!
I have connected with fabulous Etsy shops and some of my blogger friends to bring you this Etsy Holiday Giveaway which celebrates the creative genius of these shop owners and their handmade items. Some items might be perfect for you to gift to your mother, daughter or even co-worker. Other items you might covet for yourself. Whichever you choose, we hope you will cherish the prizes the shops have donated.
AND, if the prizes aren’t enough, the bloggers have pooled together to offer one $200 Etsy gift card so you can purchase gifts yourself!! (more…)
Now this one is the pièce de résistance! I am really happy with how it came out. My 14 year old was on the fence about dressing up for Halloween last year, but I renewed her spirits with this one. This was an instant hit with her. She was also the star of high school on Halloween Day. People took pictures of her and with her. She loved it!
Sorry for the bad pictures. This was when I had no clue about lighting and had just been given my DSLR.
I found several pins on Pinterest of various headless people costumes. This one had a tutorial that helped us a lot. Start early, like 2-3 days before you need it. There’s still time to make this one if you start now. My darling daughter did not agree to it until the morning the day before Halloween, so I had my work cut out for me. (more…)
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE®. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
It’s been a few weeks since we received our LISTERINE® products. Flossing has been our biggest battle. By just making it a part of our oral care routine, it’s easily becoming just part of brushing teeth every night.
I always forget to floss, so I’ve started keeping a container of floss on the side table by the love seat in my living room. Then, when I’m watching television before bedtime, I’ll go ahead and floss my teeth. For someone with dental work, I really love LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® Floss. I prefer it over the fluffier floss. This one is sleek and wide and stretches and just makes my whole mouth feel clean. (more…)
