Here are some great tips for childrens face painting for those of you that have kids and would like some help on how to get started.
Being a home organizational consultant I understand the value of the MiniBox. Not only is a beautiful piece of furniture and the ultimate space saver, it is the most versatile and functional item you can own in your home. I love it so much I want 2 of them!!
I had the opportunity to be in a focus group, as you know, where the creators of the MiniBox came and showed us how it works. It was definitely love at first sight! They brought in a vanilla bead board model and that was the one I wanted. I knew I had to have it.
The MiniBox is for my Cricut and scrapbooking --and all things craft--supplies and the Work Box is for my home office. There are a million different uses for these! Scrapbooking is just the beginning!! Wish me luck :-) and head over to Vanilla Joy to enter for your chance to win!

Blog giveaways are so awesome. The prizes are always awesome and people are so generous with their time and what they give. I want to do one soon....I just need to figure out what to give away.... Maybe one of Dusty's snakes....
Check it out for your chance to win. Although I really want to win, I will wish you luck too! ;)
Anyway. Here are a few before and after pictures. Everybody tell Melissa how cute she is :-)
Anyway. I realized than on my last trip home that my picky eating habits is NOT my fault. I grew up thinking that my parents ate a variety of different vegetables, fruits and adventurous foods. Um, what crack was I smokin? I tried to go home and fix meals for them and help out and I had a hard time figuring out what to make because they are PICKY!! Way picky. So I am relinquishing my guilt and resigning to my victimhood that my parents did this to me and it's not my fault. I think out of all of us Melissa is the one who will eat the most variety of fruits and veggies.
I will admit that I have been trying harder to expand my food vocabulary and I do eat peaches and black beans now. My parents have never even had black beans! Dusty has played a big part in helping me try new foods. Oh yeah and the other day I had fried pickles and delicious spinach salad. The pickles were just OK. Ranch overs anything up :-)
What is your most adventurous food you have eaten? What do you suggest I try next? (and you can forget about cherry tomatoes. Marcie could tell you I almost threw up in her kitchen....)
