Disney Super Buddies ~ DIY Rings of Inspiron Bracelets

Hi lovelies!  Today we are celebrating the release of Disney Super Buddies on Blu-Ray Combo Pack!  A few weeks ago, I received a copy of the movie and the kiddos have LOVED it and watched it quite a few times already.  It's super cute, and the buddies are so funny.  We all really liked the idea of the Rings of Inspiron (you'll have to watch the movie!), so I decided to come up with a fun craft you can make with the kids after you watch the movie!  {Click for the how-to!}

Back to School DIY ~ Duct Tape Pencil Pouch

Hi lovelies!  Earlier this week, I showed you how to make these cute washi tape pencils, well now you need something to put them in, right?  So let's make a cute little pencil pouch!  This is so easy, and it only takes about an hour!  The longest part is sewing on the zipper, but I like the functionality of a zipper much more.  {Click for the how to!}

Back To School DIY ~ Washi Tape Pencils

Happy Monday, lovelies!  Depending on where you live, you may be dealing with back to school time for the kiddos (or for you!)  Even if you're not going back to school, let's jazz up some of those plain pencils you've got on your desk.  I know my kids each needed something like 50 pencils each (they went back to school last week).  I thought about how boring they were, I mean, my son doesn't care, but my daughter is now in 7th grade so we have to spice up hers, right?  {Click to keep reading!}

My Mani ~ Lemon n Oxblood #ManiMonday

Happy Monday lovelies!  I hope you've all by now checked out my projects on M&J Trimming's blog!  It's also Mani Monday, so I have to show you my mani too!  Sorry it's in rough shape...it's survived a broken nail (my left middle finger, which is the one on the right, above), as well as a hike up to St. Mary's Glacier (see the pics at the end!)  but it's still so pretty, at least I like to think so! {Click for more!}

Smart n Snazzy's Part of the 3rd Annual M&J Trimming Blogger Challenge!

Hi lovelies!  I've got some exciting news... I'm participating in M&J Trimming's 3rd Annual Blogger Challenge!  YAY!  When M&J Trimming contacted me to ask if I was interested in participating, I was in shock!  I mean, it's the best store on the planet for DIY supplies, but also the past participant are bloggers I've looked up to for years and have inspired me to start blogging.

I was sent the above box of goodies to create projects with, and OCD me actually used all of the supplies!  Now when I found out the other 6 bloggers participating, I was so humbled and flattered and actually felt like I didn't belong amongst them.  I mean, they're DIY powerhouses, imho.  Seriously, to be included among the likes of Chic Steals, Glitter n Glue, Swellmayde, Studs and Pearls, Thanks I Made It, and Trinkets in Bloom is the biggest honor I could imagine.

Check out M&J Trimming's intro to all the bloggers participating in the challenge, and show me some love!

So, my lovelies, please be sure to check out M&J Trimming's blog tomorrow, where my seven (7!) pieces I created will be featured along with the full tutorials!

My August Julep Maven It Girl Box ~ Unwrapped

Hi lovelies!  I've got to share my latest Julep Maven box with you, the colors are too gorgeous not to!   If you're not familiar with the Julep Maven box, you take a quiz to determine your profile, and for $19.99 a month, you get nail polish (and beauty products!) from the higher end Julep brand (sold at Sephora), with a retail value of at least double (usually more than that!) {the polishes alone retail for $14 each}. If you haven't, click on one of my links and sign up! And right now, sign up and enter promo code FREEBOX to get your first box for free, just pay $3.99 shipping. The best part is that they show you what you'll be getting each month, so you have a 5 day window to either switch to a different profile (there's 5!) or skip the month altogether and not be charged. Brilliant! {Click to keep reading!}
