Planning a shrimp and bull roast 🍤🍤🍺🍺

Planning a bull roast is very hard work but we are getting there slowly. We wanted to raise money for charity because our close friend has a son who has CHD which is congenital heart defect. He will need several surgeries throughout his life and we wanted to give back the the group that helped them and provided support and resources for them during their journey. 

I am so glad we have several generous businesses that have donated so many great gifts for the bull roast to raise money for charity. Now we just have to sell more tickets to get our minimum amount of guests. 

Here are some pictures of the donations we got for the raffles and door prizes. 

I will take some gift cards and also add them to gift baskets and well as I will get a photo frame and add several gift cards to auction off.

Learned How To Crochet Over the Holidays 👍

Right before thanksgiving I decided to try to learn something new like crocheting. A lot of people at work do this at night while watching tv and during lunch time. I never want to ask them to make something for me so I decided to try myself. However I haven’t started learning the many items I would love to have yet but hey one step at a time.

Lori helped me a lot and still is and is going to start taking some classes at the local craft store to get more ideas and styles to crochet. She makes prayer shawls currently for the local hospital.

If interested in purchasing a prayer shawl you can go to my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78 to see the one she saved to put on my etsy shop to see how they sell. These shawls are very warm and makes a great gift for any patient. Think about a friend or family member who may be having chemo this would be great for them during their treatments.

Anyways back to my lessons I decided to you tube scarves and made a few of those will Lori helping me along the way. Still haven’t got it down 100% but hey I am impressed with how it came out and u can tell it is a scarf lol. I need to work on the ends for some reason I must stop ahead or too far out before I start the next row so the ends are all over the place.

So the pics above are some of the scarves I made. I also made one for the dog u will see in the next post.
I decided since the ends aren’t great to add some fringe to cover up my mistakes. So now I have a knitting loom hopefully this will be easier for me to use for some projects.

Storage Bin to Toy Box Makeover

Storage Bin to Toy Bin

Creative Dominican

I was tired of looking at the ugly plastic bin I’ve been using as a toy box, but I didn’t want to spend money on an actual toy box. I decided to just give the bin a little makeover. It just took some wrapping paper, Mod Podge, burlap and decorative fence post caps to go from this:

Storage bin to toy box makeover.

To this:

Storage bin to toy box makeover

Like it? I think it looks great. The bin is in my family room so I picked materials that would go well with my current decor, but the possibilities are endless.

Materials:

1. Bin
2. Fabric or wrapping paper. I used about a yard of burlap and wrapping paper I picked up at the dollar store
3. To keep the cost down I used decorative fence post caps as the legs instead of actual furniture legs. They cost about $3 each
4. Rope
5. Mod Podge
6. Hot glue
7. Lock…

Cozy Coupe re-do

Cozy Coupe Redo

I'm that Momma

Recently I was gathering a load of junk to take to my local recycle center. As I added my 4 year old daughters cozy coupe to my load she threw a fit that she wanted to keep it. It had sat on the side of my house for 2 years and was full of gunk, wet leaves, a few slugs and to my horror, a small brown snake! She was so upset that I was going to toss her car, and I didn’t want to mess with it until the snake found a new home, so I decided to keep it so my daughter and I could fix it up together. I didn’t get a before picture but after the snake was gone we took it apart and sprayed it down.

After a spray down, it was still disgusting and needed a good washing. With the help of my trusty…

Photo shoot ideas for babies📷📷

A co-worker just had a little baby boy and I am so excited to take some pictures of him since I am trying out different styles on my camera and on the photo editing software. It has been fun using the free software I have read about online.

I have several photography props to use on the photo shoot and just came across my large rubber duck photo prop that I will take with me on sat when I take some pictures of he baby.

I have been on Pinterest looking at ideas and I am sorry that I don’t have the names of the photographers who took these pics and I didn’t not take these pictures but I am using their ideas as my inspiration.

20130626-224454.jpg

20130626-224502.jpg

20130626-224521.jpg
I figured that the picture above would be a cute idea since the babies dad works for the post office. What do u think? If mail bags weren’t so dirty with germs and who knows what else I would use the mail bag in the photo and put baby in that but that isn’t going to happen with dirty items.
I am still on Pinterest looking for more ideas but please feel free to give me more ideas u may have for the photo shoot I have on sat. Remember his dad is a mail man!

Remember I don’t remember where I got these pictures cause I was on so many websites so if u know where this image came from email me and I will give them credit. Thanks

More inspiration pics of photos I want to take soon with some clients
