Hand Dying Your Own Ribbon!

Ever work on a project and cant find the perfect ribbon in your stash to match your project? Well in case you haven't ever dyed your own ribbon...not only is it fun...its super easy...
To get started…get out your ribbon you want to dye and your color sprays, today I'm using Ritzy Ditzy Glitz sprays from P K Glitz. I’m using Turquoise and Gold for a cool summer color. I put down plastic wrap so that no spray is lost and it all gets soaked into my ribbon.

Next: Mist your ribbon lightly with water and then start spraying your main color…

While you are spraying, move your ribbon around to get color everywhere on it, picking up the spray that is on the plastic wrap too. When you have the color you like…add your second color….

Do the same thing you did with the first color, move the ribbon around, picking up the spray on the plastic wrap. When you are happy with the color. Stop and let it dry. When it dries it will be a little lighter. If you want more color…repeat the process.

I am calling this color Gilded Mermaid! Too fun!! There are so many color possibilities...I love dying my own ribbon and I bet you will too!!

Where does all the time go....and why does it go so fast??? Another busy week is starting and one is finishing...Family Fun Night was last weekend and we Went and saw Toy Story 3...too cute!! The Kids loved it. We also went to the Country Throwdown for Fathers Day! Had Awesome seats..4th row! Very Fun...saw some really great bands like Little Big Town and Jamey Johnson but by far...Montgomery Gentry were my favorite...If you like country music....I would suggest seeing MG in concert...they were super fun!!

This is also happening this week...our anniversary...ahhhhhhh...Not sure what we will be doing but I do know...Honey got our Katie to come over to babysit because she called to confirm! =:O)

Blog Hop with Perferred Partners!

The Jump into Summer Blog Hop with myStamp BOX, Helmar and P K Glitz started today! For my P K Glitz entry...I made these...Fun little lollipops that my Daughter took to her class on the last day of school this week.
On the backside of each of the lollipops was a cute note that said if you wanted to get together over the summer to play, to call her but that if she didn't see them, she wanted them to have a great summer and she would see them in 5th grade!! How cute is that?!!!

The MyStamp BOX sentiment, "Wishing you Sunshine" couldn't have been more perfect with these Play Date Lollipops and the Transparent Glitter Crystals added just enough pop and dimension that I was looking for!! Love them!!
If you would like to join in the fun and go on a blog hop, start the blog hop HERE! There are prizes along the way and lots of inspiration to see...
Have Fun!!!

Good Morning!!!!!

Just a quick post here today....I wanted to show you a layout I did for P K Glitz last week....Its so easy to make chipboard letter titles "pop" when you put glitter on them! Love that!!

Its been pretty busy around here with last days of school stuff! It already feels like summer vacation has started even though they don't actually finish school until next week! Are your Kids out of school? What exciting summer things do you have planned?
Off to take the Girls to school.....Have a Great Day!!!

Monday, Monday....

When my neighbor brought me over some bags of craft supplies that she was no longer using, I knew I would find some treasures in there....sure enough I found a BUNCH of embroidery hoops! Lately, I've been seeing them decorated as wall hangings and just LOVED the idea! So I gave it a try!!!!

I'm glad I did. Easy and fun!! You should so try it!! I made this one for P K Glitz and if you do make one I would definitely recommend using glitter on the rim...it looks so pretty and adds a lot to it!! You can see a different picture and find all the details on their blog...
How was your weekend? Pretty quiet around here...but alas...no dieting and I'm not weighing in today. I already know. I wonder if I will every figure out how to have enough motivation to keep me on track. This week should be pretty busy...next week starts summer vacation and I'm kinda happy...kinda sad.
Hope your having some fun!!

And speaking about P K Glitz.....I am super excited to announce that I have been asked to stay on the Design Team for another 3 months!!! Woooohooooo...more glitter, more fun!!! Hop over to their blog to meet the new girls that are joining the team!!
With the help of my Sister, we finally cleaned out the big hall (hoarder) closet that has been bothering me for a long while. I can't believe how happy it makes me (it truly is the little things) =:O) We donated TONs of stuff and tossed quite a bit too! I am amazed at what and how much was in there!! Its a good thing no one else ever saw the inside that closet.... Thanks Auntie!!
Hope you are having a Great week!!
