The Bag Bargain

So i got this bag today. at DSW.

it was previously priced at $69.00
then it was marked down to $39.99
then it was reduced even more on clearance by 40%
which made it $23.00
we used some coupons and in the end, got a $70 bag for $8.  

can you believe it? crazy right? gotta love the clearance racks!


Merry Christmas!

Christmas Wish List

This is mainly just for family members... like dad...
but i thought id share it anyways...

these jeans, or these, or these!!
this is more of a dream... id like one like it but not as expensive!! maybe more like this... in a solid color
these shoes, or these, or these!!

ok so maybe these are a little more affordable...
these boots
Opi expresso or some shiny color that sparkles :) like these
this scarf
this necklace or this one or this one

well i can't really think of much else...
and fyi- the red colored word are just examples as i understand they are mostly all too expensive. Im just looking for something similar.
oh ya... and this is what i want most :)

Happy Holidays!!


I say... but never do...

Many people can probably agree with me when i say that I am one of those people who always says and never actually does anything...
 like for example...
1. I need to post some more tutorials. 
i really do.  but i probably will never get around to it.
2. I pin but never actually try any of them...
3.  I will post at least 3x a week...
that never ends up happening...

those are just a couple of the many ideas i always procrastinate actually doing something!  
so, for the next 4 weeks of december until New Years, I am going to accomplish something.

I will post more tutorials, try some pins out, and post more often!

among many more, which i will blog about!

so that is why i am starting DO IT.  

DO IT! stop staying and start doing!

Live Craft Blog


I went to church today...

And I came home thinking something id probably never think of...

I want to adopt a little child.  Or two.
It won't happen now, because my parents say "no way" to everything it seems like...
But i want to when i'm older. 
And have a family of my own... thats when i want to adopt a child.

I want to help the children in orphanages who don't have a family.  
or a home.

I want to adopt a little child.
