Swapper Overload!

Swapper Overload!

In Uncategorized
SO….I entered a few swaps recently.  All with completely different send and post dates.  Somehow, due to delays in the mail, the linkups all ended up on the same day!
Crazy!  So I’ll just start with the first one I received!
All Laquered Up Polish Swap
I don’t really have a lot of nail polish and tend to stick with the same colors year round.  I wanted to branch out so I signed up for 2 polish swaps.  For this first one, hosted by Megan from Shine On and Angela from Hairspray and Highheels, I was paired with Katie over at Katers Potaters.
Now when I got the package I kind of panicked….
But as I opened it and soaked the bottles in polish remover, I realized it was like opening another whole package!
I love the colors…nothing like I already had.  Plus a cute nail file/tweezer set!
Thanks Katie!
Spread The Polish
This one was hosted by Carly from Lipgloss and Crayons and Rachel from LaLa Lists.  Ms. Heather over at Gurlee Girrl was my lovely swapper!  I hope she loved her neons!  This is what I got!
LOVE!
Please notice that the card matches…Heather, you are fabulous!
The Essie is seriously my new favorite!
Thanks Heather!
The Mug Swap
This was a secret swap.  These are SO MUCH FUN!
Who were the hosts?  The wonderful Dalayna from Pointing Up and Rachel from Yellow Umbrella!
It is no secret that I LOVE coffee.  I need it, crave it, etc!  So I’ve been looking for a mug swap for awhile and this one found me!  
I sent a mug to The Thriftiness Miss…..you can see it HERE.
Mine was from the lovely Amber from One Life to Live!  She sent me this GORGEOUS gem!
Hello!  LOVE IT!  
Thanks Amber!
Side note: I love how my swappers totally get me!
And last but not least…
The Postcard Swap
Our two fearless leaders?  Hayley from Hayley’s World (you may remember that she was the lady I sent my Jewelry Swap to!)  and Kim from Pink, Pearls, and Polka Dots.
My swapper was Kendra from Kendra Kay.  All the way from CALIFORNIA! This was a coast to coast swap!  She’s from southern Cali and while looking through her pics on her blog, it seems like a crazy fun place!  Since I couldn’t find a single place that sold postcards, I ordered and sent her a really pretty (at least I think it’s purdy!) vintage Atlanta card.  
Here’s what she sent me!
Thanks Kendra!
Okay…That’s it!  All of them in one day!  Are you tired? I am!  These were fun but I think I’m gonna take a small break from swapping.  (That is unless there’s a really awesome one that I can’t pass up!)
You can find all the link ups on the hosts’s pages!

Saw It, PINNED It, Tried It (Link Up #2): Modern Botanical Art

In Uncategorized

When I first saw this on Pinterest, I thought it was a very pretty print and I started to continue to scroll down.  But then I saw those three little letters…D, I, and Y! So I clicked “REPIN” and this is was ensued…
I had an old unused frame so I painted the background.  You could also use some scrapbook paper, solid would work the best.

Find a floral/botanical print you like and cut it to the size you need.
Place the print under the glass, as you would a regular picture.  Using paint, trace the outline on top of the glass.  A paint pen would definitely work best but I was using what I had. Fill in any areas you think would look best, play around with outlining and shading too!

Remove the print and display!
I was pleasantly surprised at how this turned out! I love it!
Alrighty, time to link up!

Now it’s your turn!  Show me what you’ve been trying from Pinterest.  Be it food, decor, DIY…whatever you’ve been “pinspired” by, I wanna see it!

1. Be sure to follow your host (TheNODramaMama) in some way, shape, or form.

The Girl Behind The Glasses: 7 Questions #4

In Uncategorized
Linking up with the lovely Gentri Lee again today!
Ready to find out more about TheNODramaMama? 
(The answer is yes!)

Funny pic? I got a million of ’em!

This is me being SUPA-FLY at the Renaissance Fair as Mona Lisa.  Be jealous!

1. Hamburger or Hotdog? (veggie versions count)
Hamburger…all the way!

2. If you had to live on any other planet in our solar system, besides Earth, which would you choose?
Saturn.  I’ve always loved that planet for some reason.  May be the rings, I love me some jewelry!
3. Share a photo of an outfit that represents your personal style, please. (doesn’t have to be of you)
I’m definitely a “comfy/cute” kinda girl.

via                                                                                                          via

4. Would you rather get ready for the day or get ready for bed?
Get ready for the day.  I love mornings now that I’m a SAHM.  It’s when I can get everything done and I love being productive.

5. You have to choose between never having eyelashes or never having eyebrows, which would you choose?
Hmmm….eyebrows.  I hate plucking!

6. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Martha Stewart (minus the jail time)

7. Do you set your clocks right on time, or a few minutes ahead or behind?
AHEAD – I’m habitually early.  Sometimes I’m too early, so I spend a good amount of time waiting in my car.  But hey, at least I’m there!

Saw It, PINNED It, Tried It (Link Up #1): “Beaded” Bracelet

In Uncategorized
Remember when I told you I was going to do another post with those belt bracelets?  THIS IS IT!
I’m loving native, tribal-esque prints these days.  (Especially chevron!) Saw this pin and was immediately drawn to it.
Original PIN
Then I saw that it was DIY and super easy — SOLD!
