Last night I came across this do it yourself Easter wreath made from – yup, Easter eggs! Like the many other times before, I thought, ‘heck, I can do that!’ And well, I did, but I’ll let you be the judge of my final creation!

Here’s a quick list of the items you’ll need to dress up your door for Easter.

°  Plenty of Easter eggs – (last years are just fine)

°  Wire Wreath Frame – found this one at the dollar store, the Foam Floral Ring would have worked best though, but they didn’t have it

°  Hot Glue Gun with enough glue sticks and finally …

°  Lots of patience!

So, let me not get you too excited about this project, although the final product will leave you feeling extra special inside, so yes, get excited friend!

Nail File Friday’s: Affordable Lighting For Filming On YouTube

If you’re new to my blog, I want to share with you that I’m also on YouTube, making easy to do nail art tutorials. A quick disclaimer, I’m not a professional, I simply started to film my hobby. I’ve been filming for about a year, so I’m still learning the in’s and out’s. However, whether you’ve already got your very own YouTube channel or not, been thinking about starting one, one things for sure, you need the right  equipment. And if you were like me – are,you don’t know what to get, where to start and are short on change or on a budget, I want to share with you what I bought to start filming on my YouTube channel.

These are two affordable, inexpensive lighting options for making YouTube videos, from nail tutorials to makeup tutorials to crafting, drawing, etc. they’re great for placing on a table or desk and filming – use one lighting or both at a time.

First Option: B-Land 5.7″ Ring Light with Mini Tripod, iPad Holder, Universal Phone Holder, Wireless Remote Shutter – take pictures from a distance of up to 30 feet, USB Powered, LED Light, 3 Light Color Modes – White, Warm Yellow, and Warm Yellow and White, 11 Adjustable Brightness, Flexible Tripod, Great for Filming on YouTube, Vlogging, Steady Tripod Pictures, Great to Place on Top of a Table or Desk to Film

Second Option: QIAYA Selfie Light Ring Lights LED Circle Light, Clip on to Cell Phone – or Laptop and Camera, rechargeable USB Charging Cable, 3 Level Brightness Adjustable

Tip: If I film during the day, I can get really good natural light and do not need the ‘QIAYA Selfie Light Ring’ as the ‘Ring Light with Mini Tripod’ gives me enough light. However, if I’m filming at night, I will use both lighting options at the same time, ‘the more light, the merrier!’

The Journey Continues: Toy Story 4 + Toy Story Land

Our family is excited for Toy Story 4 to be released June 21st. I’m also overjoyed to know that director Josh Cooley has confirmed that the late comedian Don Rickels, the voice of Mr. Potato Head is still part of the franchise with this fourth installment. There are a few new characters, faces and voices like actors Keanu Reeves, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Micheal Key and Tony Hale as ‘Forky’ – Bonnie’s new friend and toy. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you don’t want to miss the trailer!

Also, if you have a chance to visit Walt Disney World, go ahead and head over to Hollywood Studios’ Toy Story Land. It debuted on June 30, 2018 and still has guests lining up to ride Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and snacking at Woody’s Lunch Box. Toy Story Land is meant to be a ‘toys-eye-view’ from Andy’s backyard. Unfortunately for that reason, there is very little shade throughout which can be refreshing on a hot Orlando day. If you go, be sure to wear sunscreen, take an umbrella or a hat to keep cool.

Are you a fan of Toy Story, which is your favorite so far – I’d love to know!

Happy Meme Monday: Gym And Jim

There are words that would describe having little ones, such as blessings, miracles, etc. But so do words like, sleep deprivation, no gym time and wine. However, there’s no need to feel discouraged, because even signs like ‘Jim’ can bring a sigh of relief and a smile to my heart.

Reblog Wednesday: A Six-Word Story — HappymessHappiness

There have been times when I’ve felt unworthy, unworthy of love – of being loved, unworthy of blessings, of happiness, simply unworthy. And then things happen, time passes and I realize that I too deserve happiness, I too deserve blessings on blessings. I remember that there is no perfect being walking on this earth and that I try. I try my best as a mother, wife, sister and daughter, and that I strive. I strive to be better and do better than I did yesterday. As this lovely post by Happymess Happiness so perfectly in just but a few words put it – ‘Even broken things can be loved.’ Indeed.

Happy Meme Monday: Maybe I’ll Blink, Maybe

It’s been one of those weeks. That week when your parents lease is up and nothing has gone as intended, having no other place to go, offered my home while they find a new place, they said yes, I rearranged the rooms so we’d make room for the grandparents, on the same week that my three year was evaluated to know if he qualifies to enter preschool and did i mention all the while, still potty training him! Phew – I know, that was a lot to take in.

This meme is me in a nut shell, and with what little energy I have left, I’ll contemplate whether to use it for breathing or blinking – decisions, decisions.
