Girls Night Out Kit

>> Saturday, August 21, 2010

Okay so when in reality I'm going to Chuckie Cheese tonight with my hubby and my little guys, in my fantasy I'm going out with the girls for a Bon Jovi concert (at which point Bon Jovi will call me onstage and sing to me and profess his love...a girl can dream right?). This is a little kit I've designed for such occasion, or just a calm girls night with friends.  Complete with a girly flask, retro double sided mirror and mini glam hair pin...with these tools who wouldn't have a fun night! 

I do love Chuckie Cheese though...I'm hooked on the pizza.

Peacock Glam Shoe Clips

The hubby and I got a chance to go out for a quick adult beverage with friends this past weekend and I felt the need to glam it up a bit.  I whipped up these fabulous peacock shoe clips from a tutorial I posted last month.  If you haven't made a pair of these beauties...go do it! Play around with colors, funky buttons and different feathers, it a nice way to add some serious style to a simple little outfit :)

Retro Poppy-tini Recipe

>> Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I love martinis.  I do.  There's something so classy yet flirty about them.  I wanted to create a special recipe for all of my fellow martini here it is. It's sweet with a retro splash.

1 part citrus vodka
1 part passion fruit nectar (goya brand in the international food section)
splash of Fresca

Pour vodka and nectar in to a shaker with ice...shake it baby!  Strain into a chilled martini glass and add a splash of Fresca.



Puppy Poppies

>> Friday, August 6, 2010

Meet Pixie.  She's my adorable reason for pink in my house (my 2 boys aren't a fan of the color).  I occasionally make her flowers to add a pop of style to her collar and I swear she loves them. You know feels a bit more glamorous, walks a bit get the idea!  Anyway I've decided to make a bunch of these cute puppy poppies for Downtown Frederick's "Dog Days" celebration this Saturday and they will be on sale at Simply Beautiful Boutique in downtown Frederick.  May there be stylish doggies everywhere this weekend!


Easy Gift Idea

>> Monday, August 2, 2010

Okay so I'm trying to get a jumpstart on my Holiday Gifts...I always have grand ideas but never have the time during the actual holiday season!  So I'm working on some cool family gifts now that way I have a headstart :)
These handstamped coasters are FABULOUS!  Super adorable, useful, inexpensive and so easy to make.  Who wouldn't love a set of these...

The process is simple. 
*Find beautiful stamps, pretty ink pads, felt circles or squares, hot glue and spray acrylic sealer. 
*Go buy some 4x4 tiles (top photo are tumbled tiles 9 in a pack for $4.50 at Home Depot / bottom picture  regular 4x4 ivory tiles 16 cents each at Home Depot!)
*clean them off with water, dry them
*stamp them with your pretty stamps
*bake them on cookie sheet 350 for 20 minutes to heat set the stamp ink
*turn oven off and let cool
*hot glue felt to back of tile
*spray with one coat of sealer
*stack them and wrap with a pretty ribbon...enjoy
