My New Favorite Thing to Do!

Like any other thing that I do, I get so excited and want to share it with the world! :-) My new favorite thing to do is paint pottery. I've been super excited and have now had the opportunity to do it twice, in two very different places. It is so relaxing and you get a great product at the end.

Here's my 1st attempt -- It's a "Watermelon Mixing Bowl." This was in Fairview Heights, IL



My 2nd attempt took place in Cape Girardeau, MO and it is a cupcake cookie jar.

I think they look amazing and I had a great time doing it! Don't be surprised it Christmas presents are made at the pottery place! Although it isn't the cheapest thing to do (shocking I know), it makes me feel great, and like I'm actually creative!

Hope you are having a fantastic week!

Better Picture

Thought I would blog again now that I have a better picture of me -- let me know what you think!

$8.00 Perscription Glasses

So here is my newest find: Zenni Optical. I needed new glasses, but have been putting it off and off. I didn't need them bad enough to drop $100-150 on them, so when I was researching some of the ways to save money and found this, I just had to give it a shot. I picked out some glasses hoping that they would fit (you have to figure out how wide your eyes are [pupil to pupil]). I got them today ($12 after s/h). I LOVE THEM. For this price I could have a pair for everyday of the week and you can even get sunglasses for just a few dollars more. You have to check it out. You'll love the stuff that you find! The picture isn't great, but I thought you would all be interested in seeing just the type of glasses I got. They even came in a nice case with a lens cloth. I really like them, and they are my actual prescription (my others were from when I was 16, so it had been a couple of years. These are actually the $8.00 ones too. You can get ones that cost more, but why? Take the time to check them out!
