Well, That Was A Busy Weekend!

Hey guys! Just trying to catch up with blogging again! I know, it's been like a whole 4 days since I posted anything last. But, I do have a good excuse. wait for it....I've been busy! No way right? Busy? How could loner Emma-lee be busy? It's pretty hard to believe, but it's true. I spent the weekend with my beautimous friend Brooke. She was performing in a play, Aesop's Foibles. And I went along to help. It was a great play, and as chaotic as it was, it was so much fun. Brooke was the fox :D
and I got to do her makeup! Thanks for your patience....

                                                             ^^in her awesome fox costume.

It was a great weekend with my talented acting friend, and I learned quite a bit about make-up.

Have an awesome week!

Giveaway Sponsor?

Hey guys! Guess what?! My blogaversary is in 15 days! It kind of snuck up on me really fast. But, I really wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate. Awesome right? Well, if you have stuff to giveaway. And unfortunately virtual hugs, and bragging rights just won't cut it. {But, you can have those anyway} So here's the catch, I need giveaway sponsors! : Nice people that are willing to donate an item from their shop, an ad space on their blog, or whatever. I would so greatly appreciate it, and so would my readers. If you would consider being a part of this, please email me at cynthia_hacker@hotmail.com

Thank you SO much for reading! Hopefully we can celebrate one year of blogging in style :D

Can't wait to hear some feedback,

D.I.Y. Wednesday // Vintage {looking} Mason Jars

Hey-o! Today I'd like to share a quick little DIY project with you. So you can make your own Vintage looking Mason jar! Pretty epic eh? Yeah. So to start off, I'm going to show you some materials you will need for this easy {and messy} craft.

one Mason Jar, some Mod Podge, a little bit of Water, Food Colouring {green, and blue}, and a Paintbrush.
First, you'll want to mix your Mod Podge, water, and food colouring together in a bowl. Make it pretty watery, but not too watery....am I making sense? Sometimes I don't even know if I'm speaking English! :b Mix until you get the right colour and consistency. Then pour a little bit into your jar.
Mix it up! Shake it! Shake it like your life depends on it!!! okay...maybe not that much. Just make sure the whole {inside of the} jar is covered!
Now open up the jar, and shake the rest of that stuff out into the bowl. Let your jar air dry, or if you're impatient like me, you can use a blow dryer. You might need to do 2 coats, but it just depends on how dark you want the colour to show.
                     And now you're done! Pretty nice if I do say so myself :) Thanks for reading!
