A Reusable Swiffer Wet Jet Pad!

Hey there!

Many of you know I am a Pinterest junkie! Sooo as I was scanning through yesterday I saw that this lady had made herself a reusable swiffer pad. Brilliant!
Naturally I just had to have one 😉

A light bulb went off in my head when I remembered I have leftover fleece from making earwarmers! Yes! So I pulled out my Swiffer Wet Jet and did some quick measurements. Off to the sewing room I went…

It took a total of two minutes to whip this together. I’m so happy I don’t have to spend money on those disposable pads anymore 🙂 Thanks to Pinterest, again, I already stopped buying the solution by half. I try to do a home made solution every other time I mop so I save some mullah there too.

If you look close you will notice that it seems bigger or baggier at one end. That is because it has a scrubber pad on top on that side that I made room for FYI 🙂
I think I will make a couple more so that when I’m using the Wet Jet solution I don’t have to rinse it when it gets too dirty. I normally would go through two of those pads every time I mop, so imagine the savings people!

20130308-103143.jpg

And I left a space for the cleaning solution to clear the pad! Woo hoo! I think I’ll make a blue one and a green one to complete my set. Am I the only one who loves this concept??

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this! Comment bellow!

Much Love!

Keepsake Easter Eggs!

The trouble with life is, you’re halfway through it before you realize it’s a “do it yourself” thing. ~ Annie Zadra

Hello!

Ok, I’m back! Sorry for my absence, between my sewing machine breaking down and life getting a little crazy (in a good way) I fell of the blog wagon. But I’m back! Tell your friends! 🙂

Today I want to share with everyone a super fun project I did with family for Easter.

They have a lot of names but I like to call them Sugar Easter Eggs! Because you will find out as you read on that is pretty much what they are made up of.. SUGAR! Let’s jump in!

My dearest Great Aunt taught me how to make these and while I don’t have the recipe for the mixes with me you can google it and find plenty 😉 I know I love google.

(My mother pictured above) We started by making the eggs in some plastic molds in the sizes we wanted after we mixed it up and added food coloring to get pretty Easter colors. You have to wait 1-2 hours for the outer shell to begin to harden. At this time you can DELICATELY scoop the inner part of the egg (sugary mixture) out. This is seriously kind of the stressful part because they can crumble, crack and break if you are not careful. You can use the sugar you scoop out to start another egg. We let them harden the rest of the night.

Here you can see a few of the small egg tops and bottoms. The little characters can be found at most cake decorating shops.

Here comes the really fun part! Making a scene 🙂

Using a frosting bag and leaf tip I created a layer of leaves to form the landscaping.

Then I added my Easter characters and some extra pretties that stayed put in the not yet dry frosting

You can make it look however you like this is just the look we were going for. Keeping it simple for our first time 😉

Next step after I am done making my little scene  I attached the top of my egg by squirting a line of frosting on the bottom egg and lining up the two halves.

Like so. While this dries I work on other eggs. I think we made a total of almost 20 eggs between everyone that joined in on the fun!

This one was the very first one I did. So much fun!

In the left picture you can see how I used pretty white cloud like frosting to cover the seam and fancy up the front opening.

Keep in mind that both the sugar egg mixture and frosting mixtures have a hardening ingredient so this can last for a long time.

The picture on the right shows the little flower embellishments that I added to the top of the egg to fancy it up 🙂

Last step! Using my mad

decorating skills to

make green leaves on

all of the pretty flowers!

All done!

This was seriously such a fun experience! I highly recommend for the crafty artsy to try this out 🙂

I gave one to my future mother in law, my best friend and my mom and I both made some for my sister and her boys.

Hope you give it a try! Happy Easter Weekend!

Much Love!

Girls Just Want To Have Fun!!

Hey guys!

If you didn’t hear about my sewing machine being out for repairs you can read about it in yesterday’s post called the Birthday Post.

Today I wanted get all girly on you and talk about some stuff us ladies love!

First things first! If you’re anything like me as a mother, you don’t really get out and go shopping as much as you did pre-babies. There’s nothing wrong with! However there are solutions, like online shopping 😀

 I discovered Shoe Dazzle almost a year ago. It is basically a subscription to FABULOUS shoes! You can go to their website which is founded by Kim Kardashian and sign up. Then you will immediately take a quiz so that they know your style. Within a couple of days they will send you an email letting you know that your showroom is ready! It’s very exciting to get these emails every month! You do have the option to “Skip the Month” by the 5th of each month. Otherwise you will be charged $39.95 per month and that gives you credit to any pair of shoes your heart desires!! Go check it out and if you think it’s for you go for it 😉

Here are the FABULOUS shoes I have received from Shoe Dazzle:

I absolutely LOVE all three pairs of these shoes! They are comfy too!

Shoe  Dazzle also offers purses and jewelry sets. They are all of course fabulous!

This purse has been my best friend and good quality too.

Go check it out if you are at all interested because its great! Keep in mind that you can “Skip the Month” if you do not want to be charged that month. They explain all of this on the website.

Stay tuned in and subscribe if you haven’t already because this blog just opened up to a whole new world! 😀

Much Love

Chelsea
