Diy Monogram Wooden Letter

The other day I had an impromptu craft day with my cousin. She was making a painted wooden box and I decided to do a wooden letter and decorate it somehow. Normally when i go to the craft store I have a project in mind but this one was off the top of my head when I got there. The whole project cost me $5.


What You will need:

Wooden Letter (cost me $3)
Modge Podge (already had)
Black paint (already had)
Paint brush (already had)
Sponge brush 35 cents
12x12 piece of fabric i found this at Michael's for $1.99 it was in the scrap book paper section but it was fabric cut the same size, you can also use scrap book paper instead

First I painted the back and all the inside edges black, this way you can hang it or display it .
I let that dry overnight to be sure
I placed the wooden letter on the back of the fabric and traced it, you can use pencil or pen.
Cut it out carefully , then i spread modge podge onto the part of the wooden letter that is not painted black. Now the hard part lining it up lol mine was a little off .
Press down all the edges and let dry for a few minutes
Then start layering on the modge podge let dry about 30 min between coats if you can.
I put down a plastic bag on my workspace so it wouldn't stick
I did about 5 layers of modge podge you can do more if you like
Let dry overnight and your done
If you want to hang it you can add ribbon and a staple gun and staple it to the back for a pretty effect

I have a really fun idea for this project for Halloween I can't wait to work on

If you have any questions about this project or want to share your finished one with me leave a comment!

Dinner Party and a sneak peak into the new living room

Hey Kittens, How is every ones week going so far?
This past weekend I had a little dinner party with a few friends. I had a little hiccup with dinner but all was well and dessert was delicious lol. It was so nice to be able to have people over for dinner again I haven't thrown a dinner party since i lived in my last house. Technically I was using my moms house while she was away but I spend enough time there its like my second home.
Also I've been working on decorating her living room so I threw in a few sneak peaks because its not all done yet.


I made cookie place cards which will be going in my shop later this week as well.

 I'll be posting a recipe for this summer berry pie later this week!


Here are the sneak peeks of the end tables with some decor

So here is some shoe porn for you to oogle on this monday . Hopefully it makes the the week go by a little faster.

Makeup Staples Every Gal Should Have

I love makeup although running my own business has taken me away from playing with makeup as i call it and really going bold. But every woman should have the basics for a quick day look or quick night look here are my suggestions.


 1.A slightly shimmery nude eyeshadow,just enough to sweep on the lid and add a glow
You can also use this as a highlight color with another color on the lid
MAC dazzle light

2. At least one bold lip color my two picks are a bright pink or red depending on your skin tone. If your fair like me both look really great my picks are nars schiap for pink and and limecrime retrofuturist



3. A good mascara my two picks are  Lancome oscillation intensity and Dior show


4. Liquid or pencil eyeliner I only use liquid and really hate pencil but a lot of people i talk to like pencil so i would say either or both would be good to have
For liquid prestige is my go to and its only a few bucks for pencil smashbox limitless eyeliner works really well and it really is waterproof i just tested it on my hand and I can't rub it off now lol

 
5. A simple blush something you can dust on and won't make you look like a clown if your in a rush
My favorite are Nars Orgasm , i had another one by mac but I can't remember the name of it lol

6. a nude lip color just to throw on to add a little jazz to your look my favorite is Nars Barbarella

Okay so let me just say you don't have to wear all of these together every day you can switch it up when you wanna go glam or just a nice day look .
If you enjoy this post let me know and I will do a budget friendly edition as well since these are all a little pricey. But if you have the extra money they are a great investment and treat for yourself.
You will notice i left out face makeup that is another post in itself lol
Also i would like to include that nobody sent me anything or asked me to write about these products I picked these from my own makeup junkie opinions lol
I linked up so you can find someplace to purchase these ,but you can always google other places depending where you like to shop.
 
If you have any questions makeup related feel free to ask I'd love to help

Style Icon Eva Green

Ever since i saw The Dreamers I have adored Eva Green , she has this dark elegant vintage style to her and thats just my speed. She is not the classic blonde haired blue eyed beauty but she is different to me that makes her more beautiful. There aren't many actresses that I would call a style icon for me but she is one. So tell me who is your style icon and why?

Mini Donuts and Recipe



For Christmas last year my mom got me one of those mini donut makers. I'm ashamed to say I didn't try it till last week. I made these really quick and then were fun and yummy. I can't wait till fall to try all the apple cinnamon and pumpkin recipes I've seen


Vanilla donut recipe

1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
9 tablespoons of butter melted
3/4 cup of whole milk
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients then slowly mix in the liquid ingredients use a wooden spoon so you don't over mix. I used a measuring cup with a spout to pour the mixture into the preheated donut maker. Follow the directions from your donut maker on how long to bake

Take them out and let them cool
Then take some chocolate melting wafers or just chocolate chips your choice and melt over a double boiler. Dip your donuts and top with your favorite sprinkles

Let set and enjoy!

Does anyone else have a mini donut maker ? any favorite recipes you want to share leave me a comment.

Lately I can't really afford to go far but I do enjoy my road trips to fun new places. One day I will succeed in jetting off to all the places on my list but till then I'll just dream about it and keep pinning so here are a few places to dream about while the week goes on.

Scotland



Switzerland

Germany

Wu & Wu Kitschy and adorable

I was perusing modcloth today and found this amazing and adorable kitschy brand called Wu & Wu .
I have a separate baking studio room at my moms house where I work on new stuff for my shop and personal orders and baking. I wanted to get a few things to spruce up the room a bit and this kind of adorableness is exactly what i was thinking.

I am in love with this pillow so much I am debating changing my comforter just so it will match something i have lol
Look at all this cute stuff!!!
Baking kit a must!
