Jen's Questions For Her Tagged Friends
1. What frustrates you the most about blogging?
I would say, I am a very supportive "bloggy bff", and sometimes, it hurts my feelings
lightly when people I support don't take the time to either return that courtesy
and acknowledge it. It's nice to know that your efforts to support a friend
are recognized when it leads to fruitful gains.
2. What's one feature about yourself you'd like to change?
I care too much at times of people's perception of me, I've been working on
focusing on my perception of myself and not soo much what
other's think while staying true to me
3. Which do you prefer, cooking or baking?
Cooking, I wish I had the patience to bake (ie. Like Mrs Fox Sweets! she's
INCREDIBLE!) I'll take making a meal any day over having to bake!
4. What's your dream vehicle?
Hmmm, I'm NOT a car person, maybe a Jaguar...
5. What's your favorite color to wear?
B R O W N! 80% of my closet! heehee!
6. What would you say is your decorating style?
Vintage Chic. I ADORE the older eras, the 60's, 20's.. Antique kinda gyal!
7. Were you voted a personality in High School
like Most Talented? If yes, which one?
Most talented, I was a BIG GEEEEEEK!! lol.. Dork.ORG!
If not, what should you have been voted?
I should have been voted BEST dressed, lollol.. ALL my
pay checks went to SHOPPING!
8. In one sentence, what's your best advice on life in general?
Live each day as if it's your last.. Your worries shouldn't out weigh your fav. moments.
9. What's your favorite sweet to indulge on?
M & M's ..... Heeheee (Almost twice a week!)
10. Who's your celebrity crush?
IDRIS ALBA ----O M G!! His Accent, everything about him...
(wait, sorry, I was supposed to just say a name right..? lollol.. EYE CANDY!!


11. How would you describe your husband in 2 words?
LOL Jen, so after you make me sell my soul with question above, you hit

loving soul and a very giving person!

Spell It Out....WIRE L O V E ..❤

Good evening friends stopping in.. Hope your holiday was filled with relaxation
and much needed break as much as mine has been.. I only wish I had ONE more 
day longer, but I'm thankful to have been able to spend some much needed quality time
with my family.. It's been FREEZING here in the bean.. Brrrrrrrrrrr... 
Cheer's to hopefully some warmth this week...
Say It With Words & Wire......
...........SPELL YOUR LOVE!

Gearing up for Valentine's day..? Yaaye..so am I.. As the season of love fastly 
approaches, I remain elated at all the wonderful crafts and love spread all around.. 
So warming. I came across some left over wood wire from a craft project I finished 
and decided to give this fun little Valentine day project a go. It's now one of 
the first sign's of V'Day within our home and I LOVE IT!! 
How Do YOU Spell L O V E ? ! ? !
You need wood wire; some raffia; and creative patience...
Ready..? Lets spell it out... Mold your wire carefully to spell out LOVE!
You can get creative with cursive and fancy up your word to your liking :)) 
Snip off the excess wire at the end to display only your word..
Once you are done molding, use your raffia to carefully wrap up the 
entire word from start to finish..This might take a while but not too long 
(I watched a show while wrapping and it went by pretty fast )..
Tie the end of the raffia at the end of your word and cut off the excess.. 
DONE & DONE... Yes, very simple right..? 
Pin It
