A Painting for Baby’s Room

I have a sweet friend who has just given birth to a beautiful baby girl.  I wanted to do something special for her, and a one of a kind birth announcement wall hanging seemed perfect.  The baby’s room is being done in purple butterflies, so it made the theme for this wall hanging easy.  I also wanted to add a blessing to the painting.  The blessing is the same one that hung in my son’s nursery, oh so many years ago, so it had a special meaning to me.

This is the painting that I did for sweet little Chloe Nicole.  I hope her Mommy & Daddy like it.

Schwarzkopf vs. L’Oreal Hair Dye Review

Oh coupons… you can be good and bad.  I got a very large coupon for the new hair dye by Schwarzkopf.  I usually use L’Oreal hair dyes, but since the coupon was so large, I decided to give it a try.

This is my personal review and opinion of Schwarzkopf hair dye compared to L’Oreal.

e.l.f. Haul

I’ve been shopping again, but this time it’s for me, not for the craft room or for the home.  I was starting to run low on some of my cosmetic supplies and I’m starting to like the e.l.f. line more & more.  It’s not an expensive line, and I can find it readily available at my local Walmart.

Cucumber Salad

One of my favorite salads is the Cucumber Salad.  It’s easy to make & perfect for any time of the year, especially when the weather starts to get hot. You can add anything to it that makes it your own.  If you add some croutons & meat, like chicken, ham cubes or tuna, it becomes a meal in itself.

This is also a quick dish to take along on a picnic or to a holiday party with out having to worry about it going bad in the heat since there’s no mayonnaise or eggs in it.

Here’s my version.

Red White & Blue Tablescape

Memorial Day weekend is here. For this week’s tablescape, I decided to create a tablescape using the items that I got in my Dollar Tree Haul.  I kept it simple so it could be used for a picnic outdoors as well as indoors.  It was inexpensive as well as easy to put together.  I hope you can find some ideas that you can use for your holiday entertaining.
