My Valentine’s Day Gift

Valentine’s Day has come and gone, I can honestly say that this year I did not eat my sweet Valentine’s Day treat my hubby bought me! No, I am not on a diet (I haven’t the will power for that) nor did the kids beat me to the sweets… My husband bought me a Valentine’s Day sweet that will last a lifetime, here is my Valentine MarshFellow he bought for me created by Autumn from MarshFellows:
These marshmallow figures are simply adorable! My marshfellow is the one holding the roses, my husbands is the one who is a bit on the toasty side. 🙂


What I really LOVE about these cute minis is that the look so realistic!

I think this gift was one of the sweetest yet, unlike my favorite Godiva chocolates this MarshFellow sits on my desk and not on my hips! Thank you honey, for the sweetly adorable gift!

Well, I always had a love for art/crafts this started 2 yrs ago when my sister passed away unexpectedly. Her daughters lived me for brief time, I don’t have any girls, so I started making them Tutu’s/Hair Accessories. It saved money having to buy them and let me get creative.

Doing things differently

Tonight I am going to do something a bit different, I recently heard a song by Cher Lloyd called Swagger Jagger and have decided to create an item feature from the lyrics. I hope you like it, and if you like techno-pop music check out the song!
Hi haters, kiss kiss


I’ll see you later…


Hi haters,
It was very very very nice to meet you…

Here are the rest of the lyrics:
Swagger jagger, swagger jagger
You should get some of your own
Count that money, get your game on
Get your game on, get your game on

You can’t stop shoutin’ at me, holler at me, be what I be
You can’t stop looking at, so get off of my way
You can’t stop youtubing me, on repeat, running this beat
You can’t stop this one is on me, i’m laughing all the way
Get on the floor, get, get, get on the floor
My swagger’s in check
