Just Ducky Valentines

I almost ignored Valentines...but we have received such a fun reaction to my daughters idea for "Just Ducky Valentine's" that I thought I'd share. And, yes, I realize Valentines Day is right around the corner...but seriously these are SO EASY and take hardly any time to put together.
Simple novelty rubber ducks, paper tags and a pen are just about all you need for some seriously cute valentines.


I Vow to Sew More (Book Review)

My background is in fashion. I went to school for it and I worked in the business for over 10 years. I am always looking at fashion magazines and books (yes...real live things with flippable pages), because I find so much inspiration. I recently received 2 beautiful books from Tuttle Publishing to review and am so excited to share a bit about them with you.

Fingerprint Heart Pots (An Easy and Inexpensive Valentine!)

February is a crazy month in this house -
lots of birthdays and anniversaries and celebrations.
For a moment I will blame February craziness on my lack of
Valentine's hoopla or enthusiasm in the past years...
but apparently this year, I am making up for it!
(repost from 2/2013)

These sweet fingerprint heart pots look adorable on my porch.
I planned on these pots being gifts, but I think I need to make more
because I cannot part with them!

I am obsessed with a lot of things lately...but when it comes to gifts..live plants have stolen my heart: succulents, mini herbs, miniature roses, ornamental grasses - I am not picky...I love it! And I have quite a few gifts to give...so I need a sweet planter right?


DermaWand: My Beautiful New Best Friend (product review)

I participates in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for DermaWand. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

For the last few years there has been so much going on in my life that taking care of me, including my skin was put on the back-burner. I was just too tapped out, too exhausted. Well, that has caught up to me BIG time. I am in my early 40's and if I don't do something now, I do not know what else is going to happen to my face. I am always on the lookout for a new skin care regimen or product or device...and after hearing about the DermaWand...I finally had a chance to try it!

DermaWand: My Beautiful New Best Friend (product review) #sponsored #MyDermaWand #MC

I see how my skin has lost that glow, how my eyes are a little puffy, how my skin tone is uneven and my pores look like craters, how the wrinkles around my mouth are starting to become more and more visible...and {GASP!} - my neck is getting saggy! I will also absolutely admit I am totally vain...so while - later in this post you will see me without makeup and may think "that's not too bad," I see every imperfection (that magnifying mirror I purchased did not help the situation!).


How to Make Home Decor Using Christmas Ornaments

In 1,000,000 years I would have never believed that I would have any deer, or rather stag heads in my home. Now of course this are glittery and fake, but nonetheless, this was not a home decor path I thought I would go down...but heck I live in Texas Hill Country now and there are deer everywhere and it is practically a decorating essential (like the Texas Star). Now if you are like me, you realize Christmas is just around the corner but you are not done decorating and just need a few more things...well, this projects could not be SIMPLER!!!! I promise.
