My Kevin and Amanda Obsession!

     I absolutely LOVE! You can get creative craft ideas, recipes, and basically everything I love. My 2 favorite crafts are the t-shirt scarf and earring frame. I actually don't have pierced ears, so I use it for all kinds of jewelry, headbands, hair clips, etc. Both are super easy! You could never leave your house and make all of her crafts and recipes! All of them are meant to be made with everyday items so they don't cost a single penny!
Dear Amanda,
     If you happen to read this, I hope you enjoy it. Because I check your blog everyday! I am in love with it. I'm pretty sure I've made every craft on your website. Love it! And your photography skills make me sick. It's crazy how good you are! Thanks for doing what you do! I love Fonts for Peas!

(I used glittery metal wire from the Hobby Lobby Christmas section, and an antique 10x12 frame from Framed!, a frame shop in my hometown.)

Thanks for reading!

Another Blog, Another Dollar!

     I am proud to admit that I have a secret obsession with blogging. I can type all of my deepest secrets and true feelings and no one will ever know that I said it! I'm what they call a secret blogger. I don't tell my friends or associates about my blog. I just let who ever finds it, find it!
       Yes, yes, I do have a crazy obsession with crafts and projects. Any time I have extra time, is rare, I'm working on a craft project. My project right now? T-Shirt assecories. Ok, to reply to that weird look that everyone just gave to their computer screen, I'll explain t-shirt assecories. You use t-shirts to make scarves, headbands, etc. They are actually quite cute. I haven't taken any pics yet, but I'll be sure to post some momentarily.
     I'm a Broadway junkie. I love Broadway plays and music. I love that feeling when you bow down and you can look at everyone next to you and see those smiling faces. Best part of plays? I love goofing off back stage, dancing till your feet fall off, and singing like there's no tomorrow. That's a big part of my life, so I had to share it.
    I am married, FYI. But that's a whole other story that will be told later....

So, to end my first blog post (YAY!), I must say this was quite fun. I forgot what it feels like to VENT....ahh. Arrevedarci, and have a magnifico weekendo!
