Expressions Vinyl September Mystery Box

Hello Everyone,

I came across Expressions Vinyl mystery boxes in July when I was looking to purchase new htv. Looking on YouTube I found a video on the Expressions Vinyl YouTube channel. I was intrigued to say the least. Unfortunately, it was too late for me to purchase one for July. I put my name on the mailing list to be informed when the next Mystery Box would be available. After waiting I got an email early August informing me that I could purchase the next box. Long story short I received my box the first week of September. Below is my unboxing video.

I chose to purchase the combo box. They do have 3 different types. The Adhesive box, The Heat Transfer Box and the Combo box.

I have to say I am extremely pleased with the vinyl’s I received and will be purchasing the next mystery box in November.

Recovering From Surgery

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since I posted something that wasn’t about a diy or tutorial. Well, I have some recovery time here that will hinder my creating for a while. So I guess I will keep you all updated on what’s going on with me outside of creating.

I wanna say for the last 9 months off and on I have been dealing with some severe abdominal pain. Over the last two months, I have been dealing with some serious pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. Long story short over time it got really bad and on Friday May 15, 2020 I had Colectomy Surgery due to a mass found in my colon. I spent 8 days in the hospital which was a nightmare being away from my family for so many days. You know they say there is no worse pain you will ever go through than childbirth. Well, I have had 7 children vaginally and I would rather have 2 more babies than deal with this pain I am dealing with right now.

Anyway, prior to 2:41 pm today May 26, 2020 we were still waiting on pathology results. Actually, my surgeon called as I started typing this. I do have the results and I actually am not going to post them right now because we haven’t talked to the children about them just yet. Not to mention I have 4 doctors appointments coming up and I want to assess what each one has to say. None of this is easy and I don’t even know if this makes sense as I’m typing it. I just wanted all of you to know how things were going and where I have been.

Circut 12×10 Easy Press 2 Unboxing

Circut 12×10 Easy Press 2

Hello Everyone,

Ever since I purchased my Silhouette Cameo I have been wanting a heat press. As some of you may know I’m cheap, lol! So the reality of me getting one was slim to none unless someone was buying it for me. I came across this Easy Press for HTV on Amazon it took me months before I decided to buy it, 1. because, well again. I’m cheap. Then I wanted to see how well the product worked and its ease of use. So after watching several reviews and not getting it for Christmas. I went ahead and got it for myself as a gift. I am really excited and can’t wait to use it. Which if you watched the video below. You know I will be doing a demo on my Youtube channel. I think it will be a great asset to my home business as well as personal use.

DIY Holiday Decorative Wine Glasses!

What you need:

  • Wine Glasses
  • Hot glue or glue suitable for glasses
  • Decorations
  • Yarn, Glitter or Paint

You want to first start by adding the string to the base of the glass and continue adding until you are satisfied. If you are using glitter or paint you want to do the same thing. Just add the glitter or the paint to the base of the glass to your liking.

Next, add leaves, flowers, rhinestones or whatever you may be decorating your glass with. You can add your decorations to the butt of the glass as I did or you can decorate the main base of the glass. It’s all to your liking.

This is the second glass I decorated. In this one, I put stars on the main part of the glass instead of the butt like I did in the first one. The video does show you how I did it all step by step.

Make sure you share your photos and your glass decorating ideas with me.

4 Ingredient Brownies

Hey Everyone,

Today I wanted something chocolate but healthy. As well I have been thinking of all the issues my children are having with stomach issues and food sensitivities. And I wanted to make something that wouldn’t bother their poor little bellies. So, I came across a recipe with only for ingredients that had no flour or granulated sugar. The best part of all I had all the ingredients at home already. Wonderful! One less trip to the grocery store. I did change a few things in the recipe and will be changing a few things the next time I make them. This time I use special dark cocoa powder instead of regular and I added a splash of pure vanilla extract to them. Below is the quick video with all the information you need to make these brownies for yourself. As well I will leave the ingredients below the video. Comment and let me know if you make them and how yours turned out. Also if you alter the recipe let me know what you changed.

4 Ingredient Sweet Potato Brownies

1 cup mashed sweet potato

1/2 cup nut butter

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup maple syrup

Bake in the oven on 350 degrees for 20 minutes is the recommended time. However, if you have a slower cooking oven I suggest letting bake for more time.
