What if Mascara was Optional?


I'm still obsessing over my eye lashes and took more pictures of my progress last night. Next week will be my 8 week mark and I'll share another before and after!

I'm having a Black Friday sale from today until Monday on Lash Boost -that's  the serum I brush on at night before I go to sleep. Easy peasy!

The holiday gift pack of Lash Boost with a free travel-sized eye cream and cosmetic bag is available while supplies last and during my Black Friday Sale, you will get a FREE box of peptide-infused makeup remover wipes with the purchase of Lash Boost! ($29 value)


Want more info? Comment or email me! You will love it, I promise!

Paper Leaf Garland



I stumbled upon an idea for fall leaf paper cutting online today and it brought me back to the days of paper dolls. This might be a fun one for the kids to work on over Thanksgiving break.

I decided to recycle the ends of the kraft paper I use for the back of my frames...ahhhh, recycling!

I found a maple leaf out in my yard and cut a long strip of paper the same width, then folded it accordion style until I ended up with a 3x3 inch square. I used brown craft paper, but think outside the box with wrapping paper, parchment paper, paper grocery bags, or even pull some out of your printer.


I arranged the leaf so that part of the leaf extended beyond the borders of the paper on two opposite folded sides. Leaving the folded edges intact is what creates the "paper doll" effect when you unfold.



Trace the leaf then cut, being careful not to cut through the fold (see arrows). It's more interesting to angle it slightly rather than tracing it straight up and down.


Pull apart your leaves and you've made a garland! I draped mine over my mantle. Happy Fall!

Autumn Leaf Wine Charms



Let's kill two birds with one stone this year and make personalized wine tags that can double as place cards!

Supplies:
A leaf template
Shrinky dink plastic
Scissors
Hole punch
Colored pencils
Sharpie
Toaster oven
Hoop earring blanks (found in any craft store)

Print out your template and place the shrinky dink plastic over top, shiny side up. Trace the shape with your Sharpie, then print the guests name in the center.


Using the hole punch, punch a hole for the hoop to slide through later.


Cut out the shape then color the rough side with colored pencils, acrylic paint also works for a more intense color (water it down a bit)


Place onto a piece of parchment and pop into a 300 degree oven for about 1 minute as it shrinks then let cool. You can press it flat with the bottom of a drinking glass if you'd like, but I like the edges curling a bit for this leaf shape.


Thread the hoop earring into the hold and place onto the stem of your wine glasses before you set the table. Cheers!


Cheers!
