~DIY~New Custom Fabrics By Zazzle

~If you click these links and make a purchase, I will receive a small commission.~

I was so excited to find out that Zazzle is now offering custom fabrics. They have a HUGE selection, all different styles. I am always looking for something fun and new for Do it Yourself projects. They offer cotton, linen and polyester. You can find quilting, upholstery, and drapery fabric, and if that doesn't satisfy your creative side you can custom design your own fabrics.

I chose Abraham Lincoln Portrait Fabric and a beautiful Old Music Note fabric which comes in Bach or Chopin. You all know how well these fit my DIY projects. I couldn't wait to try them out. This is super nice quality fabric. Your not going to get anything even close anywhere else.

Would you like to make one yourself? You can order any fabric on Zazzle...and then follow these simple steps.

1- Choose any Zazzle Fabric(s).

2- Rip fabric in a width slightly smaller than what your want to cover.

3- Stitch up the back, this doesn't need to be perfect or even, and actually the less it is the better it looks.

4- I almost always add a second layer of plain fabric. The Mocha Brown and White Classic Ticking Stripes Fabric is great and matches a Primitive style perfectly. Or they have plenty of simple browns.

5- Stitch on your patch (like my Abraham Lincoln Portrait Fabric) or plain. A nice straight stitch will do

6- Coffee Dye Time. I use apprx half a jar of instant coffee, pot of water, a few drops of brown paint and one drop of black paint. Stir, test on a plain piece of fabric. Add more water, coffee or paint till it's a desired color.

7- Dip your item and then put up to dry. If you want it dark you can let it soak. If you want it light dip and remove and then push excess stain off.

That's it. If you mess up quickly rinse your project and start the dye process over.

There are over 3000 styles to choose from. Right now if you use the code STPADDYSDEAL you will get 17% off any order. Be quick this deal ends on St. Patrick's Day!

~Review~ French Press for Coffee and Tea - Complete Bundle

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

We love to use a French Press at our home. It's actually all we use, unless we have company or the weekends when everyone is home. Nothing tastes better than a fresh ground coffee made in your French Press! Once you get one, you'll never go back to a automatic coffee maker. The Kitchen Supreme French Press is a really nice one. I am truly enjoying using it. This one is slightly different than one's I have used in the past but just as nice.

The French Press Complete Bundle includes a 8 cup French Press, 4 filter screens, Stainless Steel Spoon, Instruction Booklet and a Coffee Scoop. The spoon is really fun! Everything is very nice quality, even the coffee scoop. This French Press is also good for Espresso and Tea, not just coffee. The glass is really nice, and will with stand a ton of heat and will not crack. All the parts are stainless steel.

The French Press is very easy to wash and clean.It leaves no after taste at all. You only taste your coffee. I would highly recommend this particular Kitchen Supreme French Press to anyone wanting to try a French Press.

You find the Kitchen Supreme French Press on their Website or on Amazon!

~Review~ Xtava Auto Rotating Curling Iron & Infrared Flat Iron

~I received these for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

I am just in love with all the Xtava products, and these are no exception. All of them are well made, top quality items. Sturdy and Stylish! I own 2 curling irons, a flat iron, and two blow dryers from Xtava. I think that says it all.

The Xtava Auto Rotating Curling Iron is perfect for those big wavy sexy curl hair days. You literally place you hair in and wait. There are a ton of heat settings making this perfect for super fine or super thick hair. No scorching your thin, fine hair and enough heat to hold in your thick hair. I have uber thick hair, the kind they charge double for at the salon. This curled my hair in minutes and lasted all day long. It has a very long 8 foot cord so it's good to use in the bathroom or the bedroom. The cord also swivels so no hopping around trying to move and not mess up the cord.

I also have the Xtava Infrared Flat Iron and Hair Straightener. This is such a nice product. My hair is wavy so I use this quite often. It doesn't get your hair too hot and it comes out soft, smooth and with no frizz or flyaway hairs. This also has programmable heat settings from 265F-445F. Perfect again for any kind of hair. This one also has the long 8 foot cord with swivel technology. LOVE it! Will never buy from another company again.

You can find these Xtava products and many more on the Xtava website.

~Review~ Silicone Baking Mat with Oven Mitt Set by BAKE-EEZ

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

This glove is so much fun to look at, no ugly oven mitts here. Not to mention the ease of washing it. They are a good fit for medium to large sized hands. You really can hold a hot pan or dish out of the oven or off of the bbq with this glove. No melting, no smell and no burning fabric if you hold for a second too long. In addition to using it as a oven or bbq glove you can lay it down and use it as a hot pad. It's multi fuctional and practical! We use ours daily since it arrived.

The Silicone Baking Mats are really cool. This is a totally flexible mat that you can lay in a pan and them simply place on the counter or table. It's very easy to use, just lay in your baking dish. The Silicone Baking Mat is so easy to clean, just wipe down and your done. No scrubbing a pan. You do not place these over an open flame, you must use them on a pan. This mat is large enough to lay over pretty much any pan or baking dish, no need for aluminum foil etc. I've used them for drying fruits, cooking and baking.

Buy the Silicone Baking Mat with Oven Mitt Set by BAKE-EEZ for yourself on Amazon.

~Review~ Xtava PRO 2200W Classic HairDryer & Collapsible Diffuser

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

The Xtava Pro 2200W Classic Hair Dryer is literally a dream come true for hair like mine! It is one of the nicest and best made quality hair dryers I have ever owned. I have bought a second hair dryer, two curling irons and a flat iron from Xtava since receiving this! If that isn't a good review for them then I don't know what is.

My last name brand hair dryer stopped working on me awhile back after very light use. The Xtava Pro 2200W Classic Hair Dryer surpasses the performance of my old hair dryer tenfold. It has multi purpose heat settings. They are great for all hair types and textures. My hair is very VERY thick and I use the high setting for my hair. Finally a blow dryer that doesn't take an hour to dry my locks. The cool air blast push button function is a perfect finish when I am blow drying. It styles and leaves me with super smooth volume full hair, which for this weight and thickness is wonderful.

I also received the Xtava Collapsible Diffuser and it is so awesome. It's super soft and flattens easy for storage. We live in a very humid area so a diffuser that works is a life saver. I love the collapsible feature on this one, it make's traveling so easy. The best thing is that it's flexible so it fit's almost any size or kind of hair dryer.

You can buy both the Xtava PRO 2200W Classic HairDryer & Collapsible Diffuser on the Xtava website. I can say with all honesty that any product you buy from them you will fall in love with!

~Review~ Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

What a wonderful eye balm. Unfortunately I could not try it because I am allergic to one of the ingredients so I let my daughter Emily give it a go. She's been asking for an eye product that works. Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper Eye Balm comes in the cutest little package. I loved it from the instant I got it. When Emily is done with it I plan on saving the container.

Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper Eye Balm has all natural ingredients. Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Unbleached Beeswax, Sunflower Oil, Avocado Oil, Sesame Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Coconut 0il and 0at 0il. Natural Oils Hydrate and Rejuvenate Damaged Skin. Skin around your eyes tends to become loose and saggy and wrinkles come out even in young adults. The Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper Eye Balm should be rubbed around in your hand and then applied to your eye. You instantly start to feel soothed, and your eyes will feel refreshed in now time. For best results wash and pat dry your eye area before applying. This is not sticky at all, but make sure to rub it well before applying so it get's soaked in properly.

After just a few days you should feel and see a gradual change in the size of your wrinkles and the smoothness of your eye area. Emily has some bags under her eyes from constant glasses use but within a few days this had almost been eliminated. She has noted that her eye's feel refreshed and not so "tired". I would most certainly give the Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper Eye Balm a thumb's up!

You can try Bee Naturals Peeper Keeper Eye Balm for youself. It's available for purchase on Amazon and it's a great price.

~Review~ "What Night?" Funny Wine Glass

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

We collect glasses in our house....Photo's, different colors, etc but my favorite one's are the funny one's! The "What Night?" Funny Wine Glass from Got Me Tipsy is my new favorite. The bottom reads Good Night, then the middle line is Great Night and the top line says What Night? I prefer my drinks at What Night level! But sometimes you can get away with just a Good or Great night. I love to have a glass of wine at night and now I laugh every time I have my wine in the "What Night?" Funny Wine Glass.

This is a very nice quality glass. It's sturdy but without being too heavy and the writing isn't going anywhere. It's dishwasher safe! This is not a cheap gag gift, this is a nice high quality wine glass that just happen's to be funny! This glass also chill's nicely. I prefer my wine chilled. It comes wrapped in bubble wrap and in a box. I don't think you could break it in shipping if you tried. It's packaged very nicely.

You can get your own "What Night?" Funny Wine Glass from Got Me Tipsy on Amazon.

Celebrate National Bubble Week

Spring is just around the corner and with it comes flowers, warm weather, children playing outside and National Bubble Week (March 8th – 14th). National Bubble Week originated in 2000 as a way to celebrate spring. Because bubbles are such an iconic, fun toy, it’s only natural to use them to bring in the season.

Here are some ways everyone can celebrate!

First, get some bubbles!

Gazillion Bubbles solution makes the biggest, brightest and most colorful bubbles around! And ramp it up with awesome bubble toys!

Gazillion Bubble Monsoon — create a skyward storm of bubbles instantly! Simply replace the cap on the bottle of bubble solution with the auto-feed cap (included), attach the solution bottle to the machine, press the button and watch in amazement as the sky fills with bubbles!

Gazillion Bubbles Tornado — This machine may be small, but once you pour in Gazillion Bubbles solution, you’ll instantly see an endless flurry of bubbles with the Gazillion Bubbles Tornado!

Gazillion Bubbles Bump-N-Go Bubble Car – Fuel the car with Gazillion Bubbles solution, turn the car on and watch as it drives around, blowing bubbles on the go! Don’t worry if it bumps into something, it will change direction and keep moving while a trail of bubbles follows in its path!

Try out some bubble tricks!

How do bubbles work? Are bubbles always round? What happens to bubbles when you change the temperature? Test out these questions and more with fun, easy bubble experiments which are great for homeschoolers, I know that we’re always looking for ways to make learning fun!

Download a PDF file of all the bubble experiments

Take the bubble test!

Did you know:

A Bubble Gets Its Color From Iridescence: As waves of light pass through the bubble, it gets distorted by reflecting off different layers of soap film.

You Can Freeze Bubbles: A bubble’s shell is composed of a layer of water molecules surrounded by two thin layers of soap. Technically, a bubble will freeze below 32 degrees Fahrenheit like all water. The only problem is that bubbles tend to burst after a few seconds, so in order to see a bubble freeze, the temperature needs to fall to a temperature that will freeze water molecules more quickly.

Why Do Bubbles Burst?: Anything that fractures the tenuous layer of water molecules can cause a bubble to burst. For example, a gust of wind or an object (like your finger) will easily cause a bubble to burst. Also, a bubble will burst if enough of the water molecules evaporate.

Many Bubbles Makes A Foam: When many bubbles are joined together, it becomes a foam. From cappuccinos to the foam on the top of your beer, bubbles are all around us.

Gazillion Bubbles are loved the world over by people of all ages. There’s even a Gazillion Bubble Show in New York City, which I know that all kids would LOVE to go to! There is also an exhibit at the Southern California Children’s Museum focused on them. For kids, bubbles are pure fun for spring and summer outdoor frolic. For adults, (where you’ll find them at events such as proms, weddings and more,) they symbolize peace, harmony and beauty.

Start BUBBLE SEASON right, and pop into a store today to stock up. And don’t forget to share your bubble memories and enter the annual photo contest with prizes monthly March 1, 2015 to August 30, 2015.

~Review~ The Bean Box

~I received this for my honest review, all opinions are 100% my own.~

The Bean Box is a monthly subscription box filled with coffee to try from Seattle coffee roasters. You can see which companies the use on the Coffee page. Each month you receive four bags of hand-picked gourmet coffee roasts. They are shipped fresh to you and when I say fresh I mean fresh. Mine were roasted less than a week before I got them. I recommend trying all of these without any cream or sugar first. I also recommend a coffee grinder and a French Press for the best taste. Grinding your coffee beans directly before brewing is always best for flavor.

The first coffee we tried was the Herkimer Coffee, Drip Blend. After I ground the coffee, the smell was like being in a cherry orchard. I brewed it in my French Press and started getting hints of chocolate. Once it was done the crema was a rich caramel color. I got hints of chocolate, caramel and cherry flavors in the first taste. On the tip of my tongue was the taste of caramelized sugar. It had a smooth aftertaste and not much acidity. The after flavor reminded me of chocolate covered cherries. It left my palette refreshed, and was a thoroughly enjoyable cup of coffee. This one was my favorite!

Next up was Lighthouse Roasters Fine Coffees, Roaster's Choice. This is their signature coffee. Upon opening this on was smelled very aromatic, with a slight floral scent. The combination of three coffee's left a bright flavor after it was brewed. This is a blend of Ethiopian, Sumatran and Latin Arabicas. This had a bright floral aftertaste on my palette. It had a strong finish from the Arabica beans.

Next we decided to give the Ethipian Yirgacheffe from Longshoreman's Daughter Coffee Roaster a try. This is one of my husband's personal favorite's. When we opened the bag, the bittersweet aroma brings instant satisfaction with it's complexion of the scent of it's flavors. Once brewed, we enjoyed a bold coffee experience with a sweet berry/citrus aftertaste. The smoothness and richness of this coffee allow me to feel as if I am sitting in a European cafe. He is always completely satisfied with the Yirgacheffe and this was his favorite in the box this month.

On our last day we tried the Nilson Lopez Columbia by kuma coffee. The smell of this one was heavenly. The wonderful of aroma awoke our whole household. Everyone was excited to try this one. The flavor is a bright simple sweetness. Each sip brings a different flavor with a different note of chocolate and pomegranate. A delight of flavor that is not too strong and not bitter. This would have to be my personal second favorite.

Would you like to have The Bean Box delivered to your door once a month? You can sign up or send one as a gift on The Bean Box website. You can also opt to get a Full Bag delivered once a month or every two weeks.
