Friday's Tip

Happy Friday!

Thanks to Pink and Polka Dot for featuring me!

It has been a busy week. I will post a project as I have time. Today I will share a tip for traveling.

If you're like me, when you travel, it can be difficult to be sure that you have everything you need when it comes to the items you use daily to get ready. Here's something I do that helps me:

As I collect them, I put the smaller versions of the items I use daily together in a makeup bag (or a baggie in case of the airlines). I make sure they are 2 oz. or less to comply with the airlines if traveling by air. I put these items along with items such as hair brushes, toothbrushes, curling iron, etc. in a large makeup bag or in my suitcase. A day or two before I leave, I use the items that I have packed for my daily routine. This is a good time to find out if you are missing something instead of when you are ready to enjoy your vacation.

Hope this was helpful. Have a great weekend.

New Computer - New Slip Covers

Finally a chance to add a new post! I had a computer meltdown which led to a new computer and the realization of how much I rely on this technology. Now I just need to learn more about the new features available to me.

Another aspect of my love of all things creative includes decorating. During my husband's poker party last week, I got another perspective on my decorating. I overheard their "manly" discussion and comments of how they liked my decorating. It was good for my ego and also gave me a chance to test my newly made dining room chair slipcovers.

Slipcovers are a fun way to change the look of the room and are easily removed for a quick change. I am attaching a photo for inspiration.

Watch for a new section - Tip of the Week.
