Worth the Likes…

I have a designated studio/office space to house and to work on my hobbies. But usually I will paint in the kitchen, bead and Zentangle in the living room, draw on my bed and I’ll read anywhere!

Did you notice none of the places mentioned was the studio/office space?   In my defense, I paint in the kitchen because I need the water and Acrylic can be easily removed from the counter but a nightmare to remove from the hardwood floor or my desk.  Also,  the lighting is much better in the kitchen.  As for the rest, I have no good excuse except maybe I am just an odd duck.

So, depending on what I am working on, one room (if not all 3) is a mess!

One day  I came across OrganizedlikeJen.   In this video, she was talking about counter space (I think) and as an afterthought really, she starting talking about this bin that she kept on a stool in the bar area of her kitchen.  I thought it was such a good idea so I began to acclimate a bin to suit my needs and it has been perfect in keeping the hobby clutter to a minimum.  I can take this in any room and at arm’s reach.

In  lieu of the fact that I can not find her video, I am posting pictures of my take of the “office on the  go”  or would it be “hobbyist on the go?”

We are still working on the kitchen and at the moment we have no baseboards…Sorry….  Anyway, this is my portable hobbyist on the go.  It could stand be a little wider, but so far it is working well for me.

Normally, there would be a book in there and beading supplies.  But I am not beading at the moment and I am reading on my tablet. The planner would be housed in the kitchen, and will be after the remodel.

It holds all of the everyday stuff that I enjoy so much.  I can put my things away without actually having to put them away.

And if I wanted to,  I could put in my tablet and chargers, throw it in my back seat of my car to take on trips:)

It’s worth the Likes!

I thought about not posting this, because it  does not have anything to do with anything really. The only thing creative about it is that if you are willing to give it a try? It will save you A LOT of money.   So…. to prove how much I want to share the love and help you save money to buy art supplies, I will post this and I will take one for the team and reveal more about me that I ever wanted to discuss on this blog!

I don’t know about you, but razor blades are way too expensive.  David and I both like the Fusion Blades and they range from 13.00-18.00/for four blades.  To me it ridiculous, but the cheap razors are painful as the dickens!

In April, I happened along this video.  I thought it was promising so I gave it a try. With it being Spring and Summer, I shaved almost everyday (the whole leg and bikini)  and I used the same blade under my arms.

The results?   I was using the same Fusion blade in August!   I have very very dry sensitive skin and it did not cause any irritation or pain.  The only con was that the shave was not as close as if it was a new razor.  But that’s it!

So let’s to the math?  A pack of 4 blades will last me an entire year and 4 months!  I also, have tried this method with the Venus (yellow blades) and works pretty much the same.

***If you decide to try this, use men’s jeans not women’s…

Now that I have shared this  with you, my next post will be regarding:  pre menopause, PMS and bikini wax and excess facial hair….Nah, just kiddin’…  I think?

I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

Be Well and Happy!

Chan Luu inspired Bracelet

 My Chan Luu inspired bracelet

 I can not tell you how bad I wanted a Chan Luu bracelet.  But having boxes of beads,  I just could not bring myself to buy the bracelet…no matter how cool it is.  Since, wrap bracelets are so popular, I was hoping to find some instructions to make my own.   I tell you, if it was not for YouTube I would not know how to do anything, LOL.   I searched YouTube for a couple of days, trying to find a video that was simple enough that I could follow the instructions.  After a lot of searching, I found the video below.  I thought I would post this just in case you would like to make your own.

Be Well and Happy Wednesday!
