Embracing Fabulous Flamboyance!

Embracing Fabulous Flamboyance!

I've avoided the dreaded "pink aisle" forever.  As a life-long tomboy, the "pink aisle" (otherwise known as the Barbie and Dress up aisle at soon to be defunct Toys R Us) gave me the heebie-jeebies.  I refused to wear pink and avoided graphics with pink as much as possible.  But it's time to embrace pink!  And what better way to jump in than to pay hommage to the pinkest of the pinks.... Flamingos!   Or, as I call them - "Flaming  Ohs."

I've always like flamingos.  But now, with the removal of self-imposed pink-isolation, I can embrace them!  Did you know a group flamingos is called a Flamboyance?  Isn't that Fabulous!?!

Altered CD's - weekend project fun

Sometimes you just have to dig through your scraps and USE them!  I grabbed a couple of cd's, applied various scraps - papers, buttons, embellishments I meant to use (but never did) and some leftovers from old sticker sheets, and, voila, altered  cd's - one vintage and one modern.

They were super fun, pretty quick and easy, and I will be doing more of these from my pile of scraps!  It's such a small canvas, even the small scraps go a long way.

So dust off that old cd that you're not sure really works and decorate it with your favorite photo or quote.

Now get craftin'!

48 Week Savings Plan - (repeat, updated for 2015)

I posted way, way back about a savings plan I saw on Facebook.  It worked out really well for me year before last, but I didn't stick to it this past year.  I really missed having that "holiday savings" envelope to use for gifts, so I'm back to this for 2015.

  This is my 48 week savings plan!  Because the reality is, you're going to want to spend that money FOR Christmas!  It's based on the plan - whatever number week it is of the year, deposit that much money into an account (or jar or mattress!).  ie week 1, deposit $1, week 2, deposit $2, and so on.  

I like the concept, but the reality is money seems to get tighter for me as the year goes on.  And I like the idea of smaller "payments" as the year continues instead of larger ones.

Here's my updated plan with deposit dates for 2015. 

It's only $10 short of the other plan, and I can spend it at Black Friday!
Now Get Scrappin! er I mean Savin'!
