Hooo Are you? My Answers!!

NightOwlCrafting





I know I am a day late on this but I wanted to go ahead and answer the questions!

Here are this week's questions!

1. Do you wear glasses or contacts, if so for how long?
I used to wear contacts all the time since 7th grade but now that I am getting older my eyes won't let me wear them anymore! Contacts kill my eyes now so I wear glasses.

2. What was your favorite board game as a kid? My favorite board game was Candy Land! I loved that game! It was so fun!

3. What is a word that you use all the time? I usually say "know what I mean?" ALOT...I actually had a lady I used to work with give me a hard time about it! LOL

4. What is your favorite day of the week? It is a toss up between Friday and Saturday! I like either day just the same!

5. Did you graduate high school from the town you grew up in? Yes, I graduated from a little town in Oklahoma and I had lived there ever since I was 2! I now live in a town not far from there.

~Be Mine Frame~

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! We have had quite a bit of snow lately and it seems to be lingering around for a bit! I recently got laid off from my job so luckily I don't have to drive in all the ice and snow. I have been trying to work on some projects while I am at home and I wanted to show everyone this adorable picture frame I made today! I found this adorable frame with a heart cut out at Michaels for $1.00! I found this cute vintage Valentine's paper at Hobby Lobby! For embellishments, I added a flower, some ribbon, and some scrapbook letters for some fun! I also took a crochet doily that I found at the Dollar Tree and cut around the edges and glued it around the heart on the frame. I just love how it turned out! I wanted it to be vintage and "old school" and I think it is just that! I added an funny Valentine's Day pic that my hubby and I took a couple years ago LOL








Don't you just love Valentine's Day decor? I do!! :) I hope everyone has a wonderful and warm weekend!

Hooo Are You? My Answers!!

NightOwlCrafting





1. Do you use an alarm clock or some device to wake you up, or do you wake up on your own?
I have to use an alarm and I actually use the alarm on my cell phone. It wakes me up every morning! :)

2. If you could go on any game show, which one would you choose?
I would have to go on "Don't Forget The Lyrics"...I LOVE music, and I think I know a lot about music, so I think I would do really good on that show! I would watch that show every morning while getting ready for work!

3. Do you prefer the weather to be hot or cold? I would prefer the weather to be hot...I don't do cold weather! I don't like feeling cold and not being able to get warm or shaking so much from the cold that my back hurts...It's no fun! :( LOL

4.What color of clothing do you wear the most? Right now it would be black...a lot of cute shirts that I have found lately are black!

5. What is your favorite color? My favorite color is turquoise! I love the colors turquoise and brown together!

~My January 12 of 12~

I recently came across this fun idea from These Days We/A Blog who got this idea from My Words and I fell in love with this idea! You have to check it out it is so fun! The idea is on the 12th day of each month you take 12 pictures throughout the day and you make a collage out of them! You do this every month and then by the end of the year you have 144 pictures documenting your year! I didn't use their template to make my collage but I used Picasa's collage program to make my own template!





I thought I would run through my photos and tell you what they are and why I picked them {they go from top to bottom, left to right}

Top row:
1. Patient charts at work (I work at an OBGYN/GYN office)
2. My trusty glue gun that is used on a weekly basis
3. My daily trip to Walmart
4. Frosty the "Sock Snowman" that I made last year

2nd row:
5. A Twix candy bar that I ate this morning! LOL
6. A golden letter "M" that I have on our mantel since our last name starts with M!
7. The hubby and I on NYE!
8. GLEE Karaoke Revolution that I got for Christmas

3rd row:
9. My beautiful red scarf that I wear everyday to work (a gift that my parents got me in Chile)
10. My laptop that I come home every night and relax with while getting on Facebook and Blogger :)
11. Netflix envelope...I watch ALOT of these Netflix movies!!
12. Facebook...I think I am seriously addicted to this website! LOL



I am soo looking forward to each month and seeing what my pictures will be like! Stay tuned! LOL

~Cupid's Mailbox~

Hello friends! I hope everyone is staying warm and being safe out on the slick roads! I just wanted to show you real quickly a cute little tin mailbox that I fixed up last year for Valentine's Day! I found this little mailbox in the $1 bin at Target!






I grabbed some scrapbook paper and some embellishments {raffia, flowers, buttons, etc} that I had and jazzed it up! How cute would this be to put little love notes and Valentine cards in?


Thanks for looking and have a Great day!


Love,
Ruthie

~Lil' Cupcakes~

I am a lover of all things cake or cupcake, and since I make custom made cakes, I thought it would be fun to make some faux little cupcakes to display in my kitchen! I made these little guys last year for Valentine's Day and I thought I should show everyone just how cute they turned out! I went to my nearest Hobby Lobby and found some paper mache heart shaped boxes and used them as my palette. I grabbed my paints and few embellishments and got to work! They took no time at all to make and they were fun to do as well! They look adorable on a cute/pretty cake plate or on a cake stand! These would also make cute little gift boxes for small Valentine's Day trinkets or gifts!







Stay warm and have a SWEET weekend!
