Blog platform….

I suddenly remembered I use to use blogger before stumbling on wordpress. Who else has a blogger account? Do you still use it?

I remember deleting all my posts off blogger and adding them here. Then I went through second guessing myself and trying to restart my account on blogger. I am not sire when, but somewhere along the line I just completely forgot about blogger and stuck to my wordpress account.

Now that I have been reminded of my old account, do I use it, delete it or just leave it and ignore it? Decisions, decisions.

Crafts, My DIY Attempts, With the Kids

Snow day activity

We have tried so many slime recipes over the years I can not remember exactly what worked and what didn’t. So this year we have decided to give any and all a try. This one turned out quite nice.

All you will need is some foaming shaving cream, contact solution, baking soda and food coloring of your choice.

Empty the entire glue bottle in a bowl, add you coloring and mix well.

Now I apologize for these next couple steps. As we did not measure. Spray some shaving cream into the bowl and mix (fold) in with the glue.

Nows the time you start adding the contact solution. I squeezed in a little bit at a time as my daughter mixed everything together. We knew what consistency we were looking for from all our previous attempts.

Just keep adding until the slime is no longer really sticky.

But remember not to add too much solution or the slime will become stiff and break when you try to stretch it.

The finished product.

This is my daughter favorite recipe from all the others we have tried. After awhile it will lose it fluffiness, but all you have to do is add in some more shaving cream! And don’t forget to keep it seal well in an airtight container so it doesn’t dry out.

For those of you who need exact measurements here is a blogpost from sugar spice and glitter I just came across that I think you would like. She has a large batch and a small batch recipe using these same ingredients.

If you make some let me know how it goes. I’d love to see how it turned out and if your kiddos loved it!

Clothing Subscription- Yey or Nay?

I heard about Stitch Fix a couple years ago and never could decide if I wanted to give it ago. I watched endless youtube unboxing videos. I created an account but then realized they may not have my sizes so I decided not to give it a try.

I recently heard that stitch fix now has bigger sizes available so once again I am considering giving it go.

For those of you (bigger gals) who have tried it, is it worth it?

I am a person who absolutely HATES going out clothes shopping for myself. So doing it now n the comfort of my own home sounds amazing! Plus I always want to wear nice clothes, but have a hard time finding something outside my comfort zone.

A Big Fluffy Fail!

Since it’s summer break for the kids we thought we would do the usual homemade slime. After searching youtube for new ways to make it that maybe didnt contain borax…..we landed on Fluffy Slime! 

It started out promising.

We started getting excited. But then……

It just turned to a liquid mush. What a bummer!!

What did we do wrong? We followed the instructions given on this DIY youtube video you can watch HERE if you’d like. 

Maybe it was because I tried to go cheap and bought the glue and shaving cream from the dollar tree? The video did not specify a certain brand was needed. 

In the end I just gave up and decided to just keep adding in borax until it became the traditional slime.

Will will give the fluffy slime another sometime this week and switch up the brand to see if that works. 

What are your kids favorite summer projects?

Bedtime spray

I am absolutely loving this room spray I put together! Got the idea off Pinterest ( http://pin.it/8zMnPeD ). I made it last week and have been spraying it on my top blanket before bed, while doing my nightly routine. Between this spray and my bed of needles the last three nights I have slept so good!

Scratch wraps

Well I finally decided to give these nail wraps a try. I am a jamberry fan but got these in a Birchbox. 

Horrible! That’s really all I have to say. Not sure if I just hot a bad batch or what?! They were cracking as I peeled off the plastic. These thing were brittle and dry like. The youtube video I watched before applying these made it look stretching and easy to mold around your nails. I did apply a top coat so we shall see how long these last. 

 I liked how you didnt need heat like the jamberries but these are even lifting or curling around the edges and I just put them on. Maybe from the top coat?
