DIY- Framed Pegboard

I made these little babies over a month ago but forgot to post about it!
My Dad and I were getting supplies from the hardware store and I came upon a pile of scraps from the cutting area. One of which being a great sized piece of Peg Board. They gave it to us for $1.00!!

So when we had some time we cut it to fit my space, and I had some extra pieces left over.

You will need:
Any amount of Inespensive Frames
Peg Board cut to fit
Peg Board Hanging Accessories

We cut the pegboard down to fit inside some inexpensive 8 1/2 x 11 frames.
Take out the glass from the frames, replace with the pegboard.
Insert your Pegboard accessories, then replace the back of your frame.

Easy As Pie!!

Some of the pictures below are some fun ways to use your DIY Frames. I personally have them displaying my keys. However I think they would be fun to display in your Craft Room, Kids Rooms, Kitchen's or Entry Ways.

The possibilities are endless!

Happy Crafting!

The Suitcase

When my friends little one was born, I has this fun idea to put him in this adorable little vintage suitcase I found. Selina, was just as cool with it, and we took a few shots when he turned 6 weeks old.

Fast forward to autumn this year and we brought the suitcase with us to a much needed catch up visit!
Mason is now a Year and Two Months old.
He is far to big for the suitcase but he made go for it just for us!
He's such a little ham.

DIY - Glow In The Dark Mason Jars

I was asked last night via Instagram (@onelatenight) if I
could do a quick DIY for these Glowing Mason Jars.
Honestly, they are as easy as can be!
Last night I made a snap decision to give out candy, as I originally wasn't going to be home. That left me with very little time to decorate the front step. I didn't have time to carve a pumpkin and needed something to define the steps for the kids, that was also festive.

Mason Jars
Glow Stick Bracelets
Plastic Groccery Bag
Paper Towel

I had a bunch of those $1.50 tubes of Glow stick bracelets from Michaels, and 4 Mason Jars in various sizes. I placed all of my Mason Jars in the sink, and seperated my glow bracelets by color.
**The Blue and Green glow the brightest so make sure to place at least one of each color in each jar.
Crack all of the bracelets to release the color glow. Slowly and carefully over the sink cut off a tiny end piece and place it cut side down into the jar. I cut each glowstick over the sink into a plastic groccery bag to allow for easy cleanup. If there is any spray have a paper towel handy..
Do this for all colors and spread them out evenly between the amount of jars you have.
Once you have all bracelets cut, grab hold to the uncut ends sticking out of the jar and shake them back and forth inside making contact with the sides. You will start to see little droplets forming all over the edges. Eventually over time any excess will form along the bottom of the jar.

The Jars will glow for about 6 hours at a good brightness. Some may even glow for a little longer.
I hope you have a chace to add a few glow jars to your next event! It's a super inexpensive decoration, that will get a lot of attention.

Happy Crafting, from the girl with the Blue Hair!
I wore it for the whole 12 kids that came to get candy last night.

Day 7: 20 Things That I Love

I love the 10 little Fingers and 10 Little Toes that make up each of these little babies.
Here they are posing with their gorgeous mommas.

Perhaps this is cheating, but I can't help it.
I want to snuggle them like crazy when I see them!

I'll do another variation of this question later on in the month, promise.

Day 6: The Meaning Behind Your Blog Name

The Fiction We Live.
I chose this name for a few reasons. When I first started my blog, I was in a weird state. I totally took myself out of the real world, and was not ok.  If you listen to the songs below, and you have ever experienced love with loss; it really takes on a deeper meaning.
I needed an outlet, and something social to do.
I didn’t want to leave the house, let alone smile.
So when I didn’t have to work I sat around the house, and tried to create.

As I progressed, and started to feel normal again I realized that it was very fitting, almost a play on words. A blog is a place where you can be anything you want to be! If you’re shy, it’s an outlet. If you’re outgoing, it’s a place to inspire others. I still think that I’m finding my niche’ as a whole, but I’m very much in a different place now, then I was when I first started.

I do really try and keep all of the content upbeat and pretty! It’s sometimes not a very accurate reflection, of how I’m really feeling. However it’s easier to come across to others as being my normal self, rather than that small part of me that is just feeling down. I feel like it takes too much energy to be grumpy.
It’s hard to believe how much one experience can really define your life, and takes you in a totally different direction. 
If one more person told me to “keep my chin up” I was going to flip.
Now; I know I have grown. I still carry that life changing moment with me; but I can’t let it define me anymore. It’s not worth it.
It may have been, but now it needs to be part of my past.
So that very vague description is how I chose my Blog name.
It was a part of my past, and is my future.

Day 5: Something That Makes You Laugh!

Daily Grace

Grace is 100% amazingly funny. If I could befriend her I would.

The language on this video is more grown up at times, just so you know.
I chose this video as a jumping off point, I have watched every video in her You Tube Stream.
I love each one for different reasons.

So I shall share this one with you, in the hope that you will check out more.

Day 4: Share A Picture From Your Day

Today's photo is a shot of my Brother and I.
We were at our second Thanksgiving Dinner of the season with our Dad's side of the family.
We played with the kids at this little park for the majority of the time.

I don't think we have taken a shot of us together for about 3 years.
So long overdue for sure :)

Day 3: Look Up Your Horoscope, How Accurate Is It?

I'd have to say that the horoscope is pretty accurate!
I started a new job today, that has a great possibility of advancement.
So I'm going to keep positive, and not jump all over it.
If it's meant to be, it's meant to be.

Day 2: Put Your Tunes On Shuffle, List 10 First Songs.

Honestly if you take one song away from this list
(mind you they are all very good) choose My Pony - Daniel Wesley.
This song is a cover of Pony by Ginuwine. You know that 90's hit?

It's been reworked by Daniel, and it is probably the sexiest version I have ever heard.
I'm allowed to say sexy now, because I'm a grown up!
Seriously I'm including a You Tube video of the song below.
You're Welcome.

A lovely teacher from a High School contacted me to make some Custom Embroidered Plush Camera's for her Yearbook Club Students, to use when they were out and about.

The phrase was perfect and fit lovely!
I think they turned out pretty darn cute, along with their School Colors!

Paige Paints

Then after the mess, it was of course Bath Time!

Momma and Paige are currently away. I stayed behind to watch their pup Rosco!
He's cute, and extra cuddly. Also he's very much ok with sitting there while I take pictures of him. Which is always a plus :)

Have a happy Tuesday Kiddos!
