DIY | Bed Canopy

Hey Guys! I am back with another DIY project. This project is a DIY bed canopy for Jordyn's bed, part of her room makeover. I searched the internet for bed canopies and found some on amazon for $15-$30. There was no way I was going to pay that much for a piece of thin sheer material. I knew I could make it for much cheaper. So I set out to the stores to gather up all my materials. To get started you will need the following: 1 pair of sheer curtains ($3.49 Ikea) Quilting Hoop ($2.49 Wal Mart) White grosgrain ribbon ($0.99 Wal Mart) Scissors (had on hand) Lighter (had on hand) Ceiling hook ($1.49 Wal Mart) Total Cost: $6.97 First I started out by slipping both sheer curtain panels onto my quilting hoop. I bought my curtains from Ikea and they were on sale for $3.49. Next I took a long piece of my white ribbon and tied knots on each end of the hoop to secure the ribbon in place. Then I cut small holes in each sheer curtain panel and then took … [Read more...]

Check Out My New Ink (3 New Tattoos)

Hey Guys! So if you didn't know already I love tattoos, I have about 7 of them now. But let me give you a little background on some of them first. My first ever tattoo is of this little guy   I was 16 when I got this butterfly tattoo on my back (shoulder blade) it used to be cute and full of color, but over the years the color faded and it just turned into something that I didn't like anymore. I had planned on covering it up for years but for no reason in particular I just never got around to doing it. So last weekend I found a new tattoo artist and went had this covered up along with some other work done. Here is what now covers that little sad butterfly   This pretty little black and grey hummingbird :) I love it! it's so pretty; I loved it so much I got it twice!   I had another hummingbird added to my other shoulder blade. The two birds represent my two little kiddos I have. I choose the hummingbird because they are not only pretty birds but they … [Read more...]

Life of a Dancer: My 9 year old daughter

Hey Guys, Last night I took a couple of fun pictures of Jordyn to share with you all what she does around the house ALL day and night long. Please excuse the poor quality and bad lighting, it was night and I used my lame-o camera phone that doesn't have a flash. She has been dancing since she was 4 years old and competitively dancing since age 7, she lives breathe and eats dance and gymnastics! She taught herself how to do this varatition of an elbow stand by watching youtube videos. Lessons that I learned from my daughter: Never give up on your dreams, you can do anything you put your mind too and if there is no one to teach you how to do something learn to do yourself! Do you your kids teach you life lessons at their young age? Enjoy! … [Read more...]
