12-21-12 Prediction

Another post from my daughter Jade.

Here is a video of a undiscovered Youtube artist named Andie.  She is singing a song about tomorrow's prediction. I loved it.
Let's get to work on our bucket lists everyone.  No school tomorrow?


Interpretation Art by my daughter Jade

My daughter Jade is also a very talented artist.  When she showed me her latest doodling, I was inspired.  Of course, I asked her if I could share it with my blogging friends.

I have always loved the way Jade will interpret her love of music in either, dance, voice, pictures, or words.  This is a verse from the song Superman by IM5, her favorite band.

Make a Candle Special

Thanks Vanessa and Laura, ( for your comment on my last post about Christmas candles.  I'm so happy you liked them.  Please let me know if you make any yourselves.  I would love to see them.

Here is another really simple way to add some jazz to a candle.  It's so easy. I think it is a great idea and looks nice.

While I was at the dollar store the other day,  I picked up some wall art.  They have a great selection and I love applying words to my walls.

This time, I cut out the words and applied them to a candle.  After Christmas, I can take them off and perhaps apply some different words for Valentines.

Easy, right?

Decorate Your Own Christmas Candle

It has been a while since I've done a creativity rocks project.  The thing is, I like to create things that I want or need.  Not just for the sake of it.  If I need earrings, a necklace, something.  Then, I will figure out how to get or make it.  That's just me.  Who needs all the clutter?

My house is really low key with Christmas decorations.  I keep it this way as not to overwhelm.  Still, I do like the smaller trinket and especially one that is personally made and makes me smile when I see it.

Here's what I made:  It's easy and inexpensive and it's FUN!

Dollar Store - 2 Candle Holders
                       1 White Out
                       1 Pkg. of Markers
                       2 Candles

It's pretty much self-explantory from here on.  Just have fun and be creative.

Because Creativity Does Rock - and it makes you feel good.

My Etsy Store Is Now Open

Life's been busy.  I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

According to the news today, online sales are up 20% over last year, and that's not including the numbers for CyberMonday.

What better reason to get my online Etsy store open.  Actually, it has been open for a while but I haven't really had much time to work on it.  With the holidays ahead, I thought it would be a great idea to add some new items.

Here's a quick peek:



Thanks for stopping by.
As always, I love and appreciate your comments.

Tired of bad mascara?

Have you been searching for a really great mascara?  Me too.

Over the years, I imagine I've tried over a 100 different mascara's.

Estee Lauder, Lancome, Jane Iredale, Mary Kay, Avon, Revlon, Max Factor, Maybelline.  You know, the list goes on and on. 

Well guess what? I have found what I believe to be the best mascara I have ever tried.  Yes, I know.  I'm thrilled. 

Here are some of the problems I've had with other mascara's. 
Racoon Eyes
Losing lashes
Stiff ugly coated lashes
Lashes that feel like I have a layer of tar on them

Yuck - then there's the other problems.
Itchy eyes
Blurry eyes
Smelly mascara

Okay, enough said.  I think you can see my problems.  I'm so happy to share with you the mascara that does not one of these things to me.

"Almay One Coat - lengthening Mascara creates
visibly longer lashes. This lash-extending formula sweeps lashes to extra lengths in one quick, clump-free application. Nourishing mascara formula is infused with aloe and vitamin B5 to help keep lashes conditioned and silky. Extra gentle, non irritating formula."
For me, this Almay mascara does not irritate my eyes at all.
Which is really great, as it was so bad lately that I had to give up mascara.
I don't like giving up my mascara.
With Almay my mascara goes on easily.  It lengthens and thickens, while still maintaining natural looking lashes.
There is no smearing, flaking, or racoon eyes.  My mascara stays on all day.
It's really unbelievable!
It's inexpensive, natural and doesn't irritate my eyes.  A win win.
If you are on a search for a great mascara, I recommend
Almay One Coat Lengthening Mascara for Sensitive Eyes.
I found mine at Walgreens.  Or buy it here:
