*Glam Up a Baby Wipe Case Tutorial*

These are so precious! My daughter has made a few of these and I thought I would share her Tutorial on it with you.....

Here are the supplies she gathered:
Plastic baby wipe case (purchased at Walmart)
Something beautiful to glue on top!
glue gun

Cut fabric and hot glue on (edges will look unfinished)

Glue one piece of trim around the front and both sides. Do this on the top and the bottom edge, this gives you a "finished" look..

Glue ribbon across the front, and be sure to tuck it under the trim on each end~

Glue Something on top that is pretty. ha ha...
For this she used a brooch. It was so heavy, I lendt her to my E-6000 glue!
I am not sure how long hot glue would have worked!
Easy Peasy And Oh, So Cute!

*My Picture ReDo *

Here is what it looked like, when I flipped it...

And, Here is what it looks like after....

You know, this could be done with any picture, old or new. I was wanting a new picture to go in the bath... But, I really just didnt ever see one that would work. So, I decided to do a craft project. This is actually a new picture I purchased at Ross for $6.99. I just took the picture out of the frame and flipped it! I printed out scrapbook paper and mod podged it on. Then added a miniature Roman bust with an old earring I glued on his head! ha ha! I think his hat looks very stylish! Oh, I have to tell you about the paper I printed out! I purchased the images from Land of Enchantment on Etsy! You should check out her store, she has the most beautiful digital collage sheets at a very reasonable price!

"Five Fingers" Shoes

Ok, this is just Funny!

The Article says: Have you seen the alien shoes spotted on celebrities recently? Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves wear them to work out, actor Channing Tatum runs in them, and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George sports them for beach football.
Just what are these funky, rubber glove toe socks? They’re Vibram FiveFingers—shoes that are meant to mimic the experience of running without shoes, yet protect your feet from dirt and debris. Why would people want to run without their cushy trainers? Running without shoes can strengthen your feet, ankles, and lower legs and improve balance. Some say modern running shoes are to blame for injuries. And one man wrote an immensely popular book that concluded as much.
