Life is BEAUTY FULL....

Found these FAB colors at Target in the clearance bin....I had no idea WHO they were by BUT loved the deep purple and dusty teal....Once I peeled off the clearance label (they were $2.48 each) I saw they were made by Sonia Kasuk.....The purple color on the left is called "ROCK STAR" how could ya not LOVE it with a name like that?!?! And the dusty teal is called "Taunting Teal"

Here is the Rock Star on my toes-ies....(cell-y pic, hence the small size). I LOVE the color! And as for wear, it's been on a week and still looks FAB!

Stopped in Big Lots the other day looking for a bulletin board (I am going to make a vision board...more on that later) and while I DID NOT find a bulletin board, I did find some inexpensive beauty products.....

*Green Tea Facial Cleansing Wipes (hopefully these will help me get better about taking y make-up off before bed) $1.00

*Loreal Eye Pencil (which I am using as a lipliner....its a nude color, so I can outline my lips and use with ANY color). I am NOT SURE why anyone would want a nude eye there some beauty trick I am unaware of? $1.50

* Natural wooden stick Q-tips that will look FAB in a jar in the bathroom and GREAT to clean up those lil make-up smudges...Don't ya LOVE a double duty product? Decorative AND purposeful! $1.00

To BANG or NOT to BANG....that is the question......I am growing my hair out and SO BORED with it right now that I wanna hack it all off again (I really do love shorter hair on me...I think it's sassy and fun and I FELL sassier when my hair is short). SO, I was thinking about getting bangs cut in the next time I am at the salon.....Will you weigh in? Tell me whatcha think?


Is where the heart is, Where I lay my definition...

[hohm] noun, adjective, adverb, verb, homed, hom·ing.
a house, apartment, or other shelter that is the usual residence of a person, family, or household.
the place in which one's domestic affections are centered.
an institution for the homeless, sick, etc.: a nursing home.
the dwelling place or retreat of an animal.
the place or region where something is native or mostcommon.
any place of residence or refuge: a heavenly home.
a person's native place or own country.
(in games) the destination or goal.
a principal base of operations or activities: The new stadiumwill be the home of the local football team.
Baseball . home plate.
Lacrosse . one of three attack positions nearest the opposinggoal.

To me I MOST IDENTIFY with no.2 the place in which one's domestic affections are centered.

And to honor that, Paola and I made these HOME banners.....
This one is mine....(the leopard should have given it away!!!)

And these are Paola's....Nice spring colors....
(For the word 'HOME' she used wooden pre cut letters from Hob Lob)

Got the chipboard house cut outs (2years ago?) at Michael's....and never did anything with them until now!
We first traced the houses onto scrapbook paper.....
Then we went on to slightly embellish with wards that mean home to us....
Life isn't always BUT I sure do believe in a Happy Ending.....
I haven't found a place to hang it just yet....BUT I LOVE them! Happy Crafting!
