Party time just got slappier!

My youngest biological child has gotten really into unicorns in the last year. One day she came home and that was all she talked about. I had to switch all my plans around, to accomodate for birthday and holiday stuff.

I remember how it is. Lisa Frank and trapper Keeper's were all the rage back in my day. I had to have it all. I still have obsessions and make new ones every single day.


90Shine has some really awesome products and this is one. So far I have reviewed a few of their party favor products and I have had a great experience so far.

Now on to the important stuff, the slap bracelets! You get 4 different designs and 6 of each design, so 24 slap bracelets. Perfect for party favor bags, stockings, easter baskets etc. To be honest you could fill up a nice unicorn bag with this and the other products I have reviewed.


Each of the 4 have a different but similar design. All have a unicorn except one that is just rainbow hearts. The rest all have at least 1 unicorn. The colors are nice and bright and really pop. The bracelets themselves, seem to be quality and I haven't been able to break one of them yet.


I believe your kids will love these slap bracelets. They will always be a blast from my past and I still love them. Please go and check them out and check out the other 90Shine products as well!

Checking out that "Gypsy Blood."

I love books, you can find them all over my home. Some books though, are more difficult than other books. This book was very challenging to me.

It is in an area that I love, mystery and horror, but it just took me so long to even like the book. I feel like I was half way through before I even cared and before the book got interesting and that is WAY after the initial killing. The characters just weren't likeable to me.


It is a very well written book though, the story is very nice and I could easily see it as a movie. It just needs to be slowed down a bit. Let us get to know these people and decide whether to root for them to live or die. Rushing a too broad story along will always leave an interesting ending.

All and all this book isn't too bad, I will read more books from this author, and stick with it. If you can make it through the first half, you will want to read the second!

Check it out!

Make your pet, PETTASTIC!

Pets have always been a part of my life. I can't remember a time where we didn't have something furry running around. To me, pets are the best friends, you can have in your lifetime.

My husband and I have had a few animals in our 10 years. It seemed like something always happened and we had to relocate our babies. Our dog Willow, is with my Mom and has been for a few years now and a few of our kitties are enjoying a home with a good friend of ours. We finally have our perfect pet...Jane. She is a beautiful calico kitty who has a temper but is so super sweet at the same time. I spoil her, and I am trying to find her the perfect collar.


I was hoping this would be the perfect collar for Jane. She likes to go outside on a leash and we need sosmething that is going to stay on her when she pulls. She of course, isn't interested in anything that goes around her neck.


They have sorts of adorable collars, I chose this cool pink one with unicorns, cupcakes, and rainbows. I'm not girlie but I love pink on animals. Plus Hellooo unicorns, what's not to like?


I chose the small. Not sure if they have x-small or not, but that is probably the size she needs. Let me be clear, I'm in no way complaining, this is a dog collar and I expected it to be to big. We know a great little furry girl that will give this collar an amazing home. I'm just saying, that if you are looking for a collar for a cat, you may want to see if they have xsmall, look for something else, or who knows, your cat may fit into it! Jane isn't yet a year old and still growing. With that said, it is very close to fitting on her now.


This collar is unlike any other I have seen. As far as I can see, it is one solid piece and doesn't come apart. It just loosens or tightens, which is pretty cool and will really lower the chances of your pet biting on it and ruining it. It also has a hook for a pet tag and a different bigger hook for a leash.


It seems to be put together really well, and I love how cute it is. Jane was not impressed, but she never is. If only it tightened just a little bit more! Almost..


From what I can see, this collar is pretty great. The images look good and the materials feel like quality. There are so many to choose from, go and check them all out!

American Flag DIY Wreath

Most people think wreaths are just for Christmas. Wreaths are something that look good, but are also fun to make for different holidays. One thing they have done for me..seriously reduce my hanger population. If you have seen my previous wreaths, you know the basic way to make this flag.

For those who don't know, enjoy, and thank you for finding your way to our DIY wreath. For those back for another, please let me know how your previous wreaths have gone in the comments below. Now, it's time to get started.

I make wreaths in two different ways: with trash bags, and with T shirts. I started using shirts, because I couldn't find the trash bags colors I needed for a project. Honestly there isn't any difference in the way they go on the hanger. Texture is what you are going for in the end. Check out previous wreaths to see how the trash bags look.


Now, What you need:

Red T Shirt
Blue T Shirt
White T shirt
Scissors or Fabric Cutters
Hanger

Simple right?

First, cut out about 20 strips in each color, to the size you want your strips to be. Make sure you can still tie them. You may want to tie a few, to get your desired length.


Once you have that ready, mold the hanger into the shape that you want, it  doesn't have to be perfect, you can move it around when you are done as well.


When everything is ready, start tying them onto the hanger. The tighter you make them on the hanger, the more you can put on. If you have smaller shirts, you may want them to be looser. You still get the wreath, without seeing the hanger.


I played around with the idea of doing it like an a real flag. Blue on the top right, panels of red and white, etc, but I decided to go this route instead. I feel like you still get the pride, without being too much. But, I think both ways would work well.



I have to say, I really like this wreath, it would work well in any shape honestly, and they are a breeze to make. Show your American spirit below. Thank you so much for reading and happy crafting.

Stamp up those goody bags!

Growing up, I don't remember big parties. My family is weird, we like each other, but we don't want to hang out. Our parties consisted usually of just us, no big family or friend event. I have to say, looking back, I didn't miss out on anything.

I got all the memories, without my parents spending needless money on a big party. We always had alll the kids though and that meant some pretty awesome gift bags. At the time, i wondered why we were giving presents to other people on my birthday, but as I grew, it came to me. Bribery. keeping those other kids, out of my stuff. Thank you mom and dad for the tip!


Little but fun things are the best for goody bags. For maximum capacity that is. This set from 90Shine consists of 24 stampers. Four sets are the same. Meaning you can put 6 different stampers in 4 goody bags, or you can just litter them throughout 12 bags or less, depending on the amount of guests you invite.


The stampers are easy to open after you get the wrap off that it. Not so easy they fall off though. I think we all know how to use a stamper, but just in case...


Open Stamper.
Push onto a piece of paper.
Close Stamper.


Simple right? Make sure when you are playing with these, that you take note of my different images. The harder or lighter you push, the image is different. I showed three different types of pressing, soft, medium, and hard. I know my kids go straight to hard, I'm not sure about yours. LOL


Every time, I tried a stamper throughout the last week, it has worked for me and they haven't even started drying out yet. The images are great for boys and girls and the colors are nice and bright.



My kids loved these in their Easter baskets, they fit right into the plastic eggs. I haven't yet had to test these on how well they come off surfaces or hands yet, so if you do, let me know below. Until then, please go and check out this product on Amazon, at the link below.
