Decorative Windchime

Summer is all about outdoors and colors! Learn how to make this cute. It doesn't make sound since I added decorative glass beads to the pot. I just love how it sparkles in the sun.

This is a super cheap and easy craft for toddlers. You need tiny terracotta pot, acrylic paint, paint sealant, silicone sealant, beads, floral wire, nylon string and open mind. All supplies can be bought at a Dollar Store.

Simply paint the pot with your design. I painted a dragonfly using a stencil I had on hand. Add glitter while the paint is still wet. Use UV Silicone Sealant to adhere the glass rocks. I attempted liquid fusion glue but it didn't withstand the heat from the sun.

Create a loop with gold beads from floral wire and glue the ends inside. The tail of beads is strung on nylon string and tied to the floral wire before it's glued.

Skip the glass beads and add small bells or a washer on the string of beads. When the wind blows it will make a small ding against the pot.

RAISE Armpit Stain Remover

Aluminum based deodorants are the culprits for armpits stained yellow. One solution is to switch to a natural deodorant. This may not be an appealing option for many. I don't mind using coconut based deodorant but my husband does.

I have tried numerous store bought and homemade cleaning options but the yellow remains. Bleach is the worst product EVER to use on pit stains. It will turn them orange! Trust me I know. Vinegar, baking soda, peroxide mixture is best used on fresh stains and washed immediately (after soaking). I need an easier more permanent solution. RAISE Armpit Stain Remover offered me an opportunity to test their product.

Why no new blog posts?

I asked a few weeks ago what content you wanted to see on my blog. 99% said more crafts. I found a few crafts on pinterest I wanted to try. I am confused on conflicting information and how it will stand up over time. I have been trying different paints in this case to see which is best to recommend for the project.

With a toddler around my time is limited when it comes to crafting. Some steps require time and precision.

I had a few fails along the way. I think I found something that will succeed.

I am also trying to promote Lilla Rose. I have 3 bloggers currently reviewing clips they picked and we will be offering giveaways ;-)

I signed up for a few product reviews and have been testing their products. I don't right reviews without properly testing the product. If it fails to do what they promise I don't give up but test some more. ;-)

I am also a huge fan of Game of Thrones! My husband read the books. We watched them together and his college work has been keeping him busy at nights. We have just two more episodes to watch.

I also finished the 5th book in the Outlander series and reading to start the 6th. This will also become a tv series on Starz soon. The latest book will be available in the spring. I am hoping to catch up by then.

Blogging is a part time job that I love but I won't let it consume my time. Thanks for being a true fan and hanging around for more posts.

I am happy to introduce to you BREATHE by doTERRA. If you were to own ONE essential oil blend this would be the one. I know so many people who cringe when they are sick enough to use vapor rub. Eucalyptus is a very powerful and potent smelling oil. You love it or hate it along with Peppermint. doTERRA's BREATHE blend is a proprietary blend including laurel leaf, peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemon and ravensara. Laurel Leaf and Ravensara soften the camphorous aroma of the eucalyptus and peppermint oil. They offer spicy and fruity notes making this blend more appealing.
