Coloring With The Stars :OP

Okay okay that is probably the lamest title I have ever come up with lol, but after spending 5 hours cleaning my children's rooms top to bottom today my brain is just about done. Of course with deep clean comes a lot of things from broken toys to broken crayons. Well I remembered as I cleaned that the other day while on Pinterest I came across a picture of remelted crayons. So I rush to find the directions and :O( sadly it was just a picture of cut crayons and the finished product. So I though ehhh why not let's figure this out.lol So I gathered all my crayons up and peeled off any remaining paper. The next issue was getting them in small pieces. I cut them just long enough to fill the hole of the mold standing up. My kids insisted that we had to try to keep like colors together lol, I thought it would be far more fun to mix them, so we did a little of both :O) After filling the molds as best I could I thought hmmmmm....soooo....how do I melt it.lol Well I tried them in the microwave for 2 minutes with no change :O( I remembered I had a heat gun....hehehe....so I turn it on low and melted them down. as they cooled I noticed holes coming to the top so I heated them up again. They turned out okay but I think I needed to get them a little hotter maybe next time turning it on high. I'm thinking this may be a great summer time craft! Here in West Texas I could simply put the mold on my dashboard.lol

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite!
