Phineas & Ferb

Have you ever heard of this show? Well my little boy has started to like it recently. I have discovered that I really like it, sometimes I kind of persuade him into watching it.
ANYWAY the reason I bring it up is because he told me that he wants a Perry the Platypus cake for his birthday in 2 months.
So now I have to come up with an idea for it...any suggestions?

Bad Hair Day

Have you ever had one of those days, weeks...perhaps years where you can't figure out why your hair just looks like..crap?
I have those all the time, but I am an over scheduled Mommy so it is all my own fault.
My hair stylist (who happens to be my gorgeous and talented sis-in-law) has an AWESOME blog all about hair and make up.
She goes into all of the do's and do not's of how to put on your make-up and how to take care of your hair.

Believe me she knows her stuff. SHe is the only one who I have let touch my hair for at least three years now and she keeps it in great condition.

Go over and check her out at Nicole Does Hair! You will be glad that you did

Re-do your candles Tutorial

So..are you like me and really really dislike the price of candles? I purchased these rust colored ones a long time ago and they used to match my decor but now that I have completely changed my living room they sort of stick out like a sore thumb.

So what should I do with them?
I mean these 3 little candles cost me at least 10 bucks and I didn't want to have to run out and purchase new ones when I had these perfectly good ones just lying around.
Plus I have a bunch of other things that I want to spend the $10 on...perhaps some new shoes or ice cream...
Anyway here is my solution.

All I did was tape some pretty paper to the candle.

Wrap the paper around the candle and then tape.

As my cool cutter is lost I just trimmed the bottom up with some scissors.

Then I traced the bottom of the candle and cut out a circle for the top, poked a hole in the middle for the wick and VOILA!

The new cost of these cute candle was .59. I got the paper at Hobby Lobby for half price. :)

So I love this blog. I love that I actually have followers. I love that even though I have neglected it for a month I still have people checking in. I am not gonna make any promises that I will be a better blogger but I will try to do an update at least once a week. That will be my goal. I just have a ton of things going right now that HAVE to be done and this is just not number one priority right now.
Me and the hubs have been working on a bunch of projects though so it will be fun to show them off.
Look for a new blog post sometime in the next week with our big summer project :)

Composition Book up-do

This week I have been playing host to my super cute and sassy 11 yr old niece, McKenzie.
She and I have been doing all sorts of things this week and I have to say that she has been super...and I mean super SPOILED.
One of the things I love about her is that she is crafty. Since she was a little girl she has loved art and anything that involves crafts. ANYWAY she kept drawing in a book all week and I told her that we could make her drawing book a whole lot cuter and she was on board. I also thought that while we were at it we might as well make a few more for her school subjects. Here is what we came up with.

Guess what the best part is? I figured that just about every girl out there needs a cute little notebook to write in so you get the chance to win 2 of these beauties...but the better part is that 3 of you get to win.

Here is all you need to do to win.

1. You must be a public follower of heathershouse2home and leave me a comment telling me which ones you would like if you win.

That's it :)

The contest will run from 7/29(today) until midnight Aug 6th. The winner will be chosen by
(Open to US residents only)
