5K


{{MY 5K JOURNEY BEGINS}}

My good friend recently asked me if I would like to do a 5K with her. I said sure but, my running is a little rusty. So, she introduced me to this really cool APP. for my iphone. It's called Get Running. It claims to get you off the couch and running for a half an hour in nine weeks. I agreed to do it.

Today was day one. It was like I had my own navigational system while running. One of the features is you can listen to your music and it turns it down while talking to you. It was very encouraging having a lady with a cool accent talking me through my run. It also logs your achievements and you only have to run 3 days a week.

I should be ready to run a 5K at the end of April. I'll keep you posted!

I am honored to introduce you to my Featured Guest{Daydream Believers}-- and her tutorial, how to make a toddler apron from a tea towel!

While blog hopping I stumbled upon this little treasure. Daydream Believers has done an amazing job at coming up with this adorable and super easy apron. Please show her love by visiting her site and becoming a follower. I have two boys but, this will make great gifts!




Hi! I'm Michelle, I am a Daydream Believer and a
Punk-Rock-Prom Queen
{true story, I even have the crown!}




I started making tutus and sewing after my daughters were born. With two little girlies and a mumma who loves to create; our house is a haven for all things sparkly and fun! Unable to buy the trendy clothing and accessories I desired for my girls locally; I started making my own. After lots of nudging from my hubs and family, the Daydream Believer Shop was born!

Today, I'm going to teach you my easy-peasy way to
whip up this 
sweet little apron in 20 minutes or less.
Seriously! It's that easy!

{Mini Valentine's Chalkboards}




I had so much Fun making these Mini Valentine's Chalkboards! You could make these for any Holiday or you could make them plain. If you make a cupcake bar for Valentine's Day you could use these to put infront of each item. Cupcakes, Icing, Sprinkles, Nuts, Cherries, etc.... It will take your buffet to the next level!



First: Find a fun shaped mini chalkboard. I found these at HobbyLobby down Valentine's Isle.


Second: Find a wooden base.


Third: Find smallest dowel rod possibl and cut to 3 1/4 inch.


Fourth: Drill small hole in base. Please use proper saftey precautions!



Fifth: Paint dowel rod and base.



Sixth: Sprinkle with GLITTER! The more sparkle the better.



Seventh: Glue it all together. I used woodglue.



Eighth: Be creative and use as signs or place settings.


Ninth: Most important... Have FUN!
