Blinged Out Bow

My very first crafting ever was making boutique style hair bows for my 4 daughters. I always loved the way boutique hair bows and headbands looked but they were SO EXPENSIVE, so I figured out how to do it myself and started making hair bows, headbands, hair clips and tutu’s! I still do it from time to time, so my kids stay well stocked and their friends are always asking me to make stuff for them. So here I decided to add some bling to this hair bow and O MY GOSH! TOTAL SUCCESS! My kids seriously argued over who should get this! LOL! SO I see me making many more in the near future!

I KNOW RIGHT?! I’m in love! Think I could pull one off in my hair?!

OH SNAP! Its got bling!

So when I first hurt my back 4 years ago, I was going STIR CRAZY, I was having such a hard time with not being able to be up and moving all the time. My husband asked me if there was something I would like to try.. and I said well, scrapbooking! We had just gotten married and had a baby and so I was really wanting to preserve those moments in time. SO we went and got a lil stuff and over time, I got more and more, and now I have a ROOM for my stuff that’s busting at the seams! LOL!

When I found the bling from The Buckle Boutique I seriously fell in LOVE and now I use it on everything! Even scrapbook pages! Here is proof!

Got bored kids in the car? check this out!

Last year we took a family trip to Missouri, to see my biological mom for the first time as a family. Her coming back into my life in a bigger way then before in the last 5 yrs has been a fun ride, just to watch her grow and become a better person and to see how proud of me she is, despite my rough start of being a teen mom. I am now a married mother of 4 girls ages 2.5, 4.5, 9.5 and 12, own a  house and drive a brand new car, all at the age of 28.. I’m far from perfect, and so is my life.. but I have come a LONG way! We bought our house about 4 yrs ago,  so I was only 24, pregnant with my 4th child, buying a HOUSE and driving a mini van so as you can imagine its been a heck of a ride to get here and it feels to good to reconnect with her and understand why she made the choices she did, and to just feel confident that I made it thru all my trialing times in such a BIG way! Also, I must add here, my dad married an AMAZING woman who raised me as her own and who I am also proud to call my mom, and my biological mom has the GRANDEST respect and love for her for taking on what she couldn’t many years ago!

ANYWAYS enough about me!

On the car ride of 8 long hours, the kids had the Nintendo Ds’s the tablets, the ipods and all that stuff, but it really kept them from interacting with one another, and so I thought, I can fix that for the next time! I mean the technology is great, but it would be great to see them do something else, so I came up with TWO ideas and I’m going to share one with you now and one with you soon! This one is fun! The next one is even more fun! SO this is what I came up with!

Image

You read that right! its a DVD CASE YA’LL! SO basically I took a piece of chipboard (or cardboard) and fit it to the inside of the case, and I glued fabric to it and made a pocket and glued that one as well, to hold markers, colored pencils, pens, dry erase marker and glued it to the inside of the dvd case (yes there’s a reason I said dry erase.. wait for it..)

Image

 

I would NOT recommend crayons as they could melt allll over if left in the car and make a big ol mess!

this is basically what you need to do it

Image

I even made the paper pad by cutting paper to fit the other side, putting a chip board on the bottom to give it some hardness for them to draw on the paper, hole punched the stack and tied on with ribbon so I can easily add more when this runs out… and the other side of the paper pad…  IS DRY ERASE! EEK!

Image

DCWV is soooo cool! they made this scrapbook paper pack that is dry erase paper! You can cut shapes out of it, I mean come on this stuff is amazing! I cut it to fit the other side of the chip board and stuck it on with some glue and it was a a done project after adding some bling from The Buckle Boutique and a light colored paper to the sleeve of the dvd to give the outside some color, PLUS you can draw on the outside of the case with dry erase marker and it wipes right off! HOW FUN IS THAT!!!!

My kids have been excited to try this one out! They have played tic tac toe, hangman, made up their own games, played the license plate game, they have drawn each other pictures… the possibilities are endless! The technology is cool and all, but I so enjoy hearing the creativity flying in the back seats of my suv!

I can not wait to show you the next one I am doing! But that is all for now 🙂 I hope to see you back here!

What do you think about DCWV dry erase paper stack?! What will you use yours on?! I personally have an endless list of things to do with this stuff! COME BACK to see more of what I do with it and other DCWV product and The Buckle Boutique product!!

A project to remind you to… Be-YOU-tiful!

I’m counting down the days until one of my middle children turns 10 and gets to have her BIG KID BEDROOM MAKEOVER hosted by *drum roll* me and gramma! YAY! It is a tradition in our house to transform the kids room when they turn 10 into a big girl room, I always paint something on the walls really cool, so far its always been zebra print per the kids request, and this one will be too! YAY ME! LOL! anyways, LOOK what I made for Ms. Azlynn’s room make over in October!

Image

 

WHAT LIL GIRL (or any girl for that matter) wouldn’d LA-LA-LOVE this?! The answer is… not a normal one. LOL! I WANT ONE! ALL MY OTHER GIRLS WANT ONE! So this was super easy too might I add! First I bought this file from the Silhouette store, look up wedding dress and it will be there! There’s also a butterfly version of this too I believe! BUY IT, cut it, and then start hole punching your bling from THE BUCKLE BOUTIQUE!

Image

 

My fave stuff by the way… in case you didn’t know that by now! LOL. Decide how many you need by setting them where you want them to go, peel off the back when your ready and stick it to it!

Image

 

Then pick a paper for your frame, I picked a DCWV paper cause I just love them so much! This pink one went PERFECT with my daughters room color! Glue your pretty pretty dress to the paper and cut out your saying for the bottom and glue it, I went with BE-YOU-tiful, to remind my girl to always be herself, shes beautiful just being her!

put it in the frame and hang it as soon as possible cause this thing is CUTTTTE!

Image

She doesn’t get to have it hung til her room is done and shes officially 10, so for now, I’m enjoying it on my craft desk 🙂 I promise I will fork it over the minute she turns 10 cause I will have made myself one by then! HAHAHA!

Go pick up a frame, some DCWV cardstock/paper stack, and some BLING from THE BUCKLE BOUTIQUE and and hole puncher and some glue and HOP to it! You will have people asking you about this one all day long when they see it hung on the wall!

Don’t forget to check out The Buckle Boutique! No project is complete without their bling I promise you that! I literally use it on everything!
