Memories To Hold On To... Guest Post..

Hello there, thanks so much for stopping in today. I have a fun guest post
for you today featuring the beautiful Abby via Dirt On The Rocks Blog.. 
Hope you take a moment to enjoy a little memory 
DIY tutorial she's sharing here today!
Memories To Hold On To
Blogger: Abby Tudela Via Dirt On The Rocks
Hi there, my name is Abby and I blog at Dirtontherocks.com and 
Bigboychronicles.com. Thanks to Marilyn for giving me the 
opportunity to write a guest post on her blog today.
Do you like doing projects with your children that won’t break the bank? 
While browsing Pinterest, I found a great project to do exactly that.
When my son was younger, I had always wanted to keep a mold of his hands 
and feet, instead I opted for a stamp pad and frame from the local arts and crafts store.
I remember shelling out twenty dollars for a small stamp pad and frames, 
which I could have made on my own now that I think about it, 
but at the time it seemed like the best solution.
Here’s an alternative to the ink pad - make your own mold at home!
Ingredients for your Mold:
½ cup of salt½ cup of flour¼ cup of water

Directions:
Knead the ingredients together until a dough forms
Make the impression of the hand or foot and any 
other writing you want included.

Bake the dough for 3 hours under 200 degrees in your oven
    There you have it -  you’ve got your mold. Simple, right? 
    You can always paint over it if you’d like or add a gloss finish.
    You can place it on a mantle, decorate your child’s room, or even 
    use it as stepping stones on your front yard. Placing it on a 
    canvas for display is also very inexpensive. 
    It’s easy and makes a great gift.
    There’s definitely nothing better than using what you 
    have at home and making an awesome project out of it!
    .....................................

    Abby is 23 and a single mother living in Southern California trying to make 
    ends meet. She is a freelance blogger whose clients include an
    apartment-finding service for renters seeking Valley Ranch Irving apartments.
    Abby loves spending time with her son and learns new things about
    him daily. Like many single moms, she finds that her life experiences
    can be both daunting and inspiring, and writes about all
    of this on her blog, Dirt on the Rocks.
    .........................................
    Hope you get a chance to craft up some little memories for your
    little ones sometime soon.. Sincerely appreciate Abby for stopping in today!
    Thanks SO much again.. Wishing you a beautiful evening..

    Lace Lust ..{Shabby Lace Vases}

    Hello lovely friends stopping in this evening..
    Hope your week has been marvelous so far, and you had an amazing 
    labor day weekend! I've been addicted to lace lately and can't seem to get 
    enough of it. From lace clothing, to lace pieces around the house (pillow's, 
    etc) and now lace candle holders and shabby vases! It's lead me to this
    new favorite household item I am super in love with.. 
    DIY Lace Shabby Vase
    ...........{& Tea lights}
    Jolie Lune is my Etsy store where these goodies are now available for sale
    if you are interested (so please pardon my logo). These are super easy to create
    if you have the time and great presents for any home warming, etc..
    Items Needed
    Piece Of Lace Fabric
    Mason Jars
    Spray Paint (Krylon Flat White)
    .....& Maybe a coke and a smile at how easy this is to put together!
    ......................
    Lets Get Crafty
    To begin, cut a piece of lace fabric fitting for your jar all the around.
    Put the lace in place and seal the sides to stay on using a little piece of tape.
    Once your far is ready, carefully spray paint it generously all around to satisfaction.
    {I wouldn't recommend spraying it twice to avoid bulky / leaky paint}

    Immediately remove lace about 3-5minutes after spraying to avoid sticking.
    {even sooner if it's a really windy day, Krylon flat paint dries quicly}

    Oooh, you were expecting another step right..? NOPE, that's IT! Let it
    air dry and tadaaaaaaaaa... You've got a beautiful vase/tea light holder ready to use!
    So shabby chic, vintage and simply beautiful!!
    .............................
    These are awesome tea lights as well. The light shines through the lace so
    beautfully.. They'll add an amazing touch to any dinner table.. Very romantic 
    and rather chic.. Hope you enjoyed my lovely little tutorial here today.

    It's almost fall, catch some last minute deck/outdoor time before
    old man winter sneaks in.. It's already cool here thus far this week.
    These are also now available within my
    for sale if anyone is interested.. 
    ....              .....
    Thanks so much for joining me today... Wishing you an 
    amazing evening..Off to link here for the week..
