So I don't remember if I told y'all or not but I have recently gotten a boyfriend! His name is Ryan and he is super sweet and nice, I think I'm a pretty lucky gal. And one of the best parts? He doesn't care that I have a child! Uh yay! Oh and he actually likes me, that is rather nice too. Sadly he lives 2 and a half hours away but we make it work. 

Let's make ornaments!

So I'm about a year or two too late on this... But while putting ornaments on the try with Melody we found the hand and foot molds for an ornament! So of course we had to stop and do it! Her hand fit perfectly in the tin but sadly her foot was too big so I'm hoping the mold will hold on it's own.

She definitely had a blast with it!

Gratitude Jar

Well I meant to make this the first day of November and well that didn't happen... But better late than never! It was quick and fun and Melody enjoyed helping pick out the paper and ribbon!

We just used a mason jar, scrapbook paper, ribbon, mod podge, and scissors! All I did was trace the lid of the mason jar on the scrapbook paper, cut it out, mod podge it to the lid, and tied a ribbon around the jar! You could probably make it a little nicer... But I think its cute =]

How to Twitter?

I want to be "in" with social media. I enjoy Tumblr and have even made a YouTube video and I was doing decent at keeping up a blog. There is just something about Twitter that has me stumped though. How does it work? What do you even tweet?

This is what I have figured out so far:

  • Daily happenings
  • Quotes
  • Giveaways
  • Participating in trends
  • Replying to others
  • Love of people or items
  • Pictures
  • And mostly just tweet whatever you want! 
It still seems a bit intimidating to me but we'll give it another try!!

Do you have a Twitter? What do you tweet about? Tweet me @ibelayni
