  1. Recycled Party Decor

    June 5, 2013 by barbara

    I was blog-hopping last night and when I was at Design Sponge, I read about its wonderful party decorations idea.  I love it to bits.  Design Sponge talked about using the things that we already have in the house and recycle them as party decorations.  It just super simple and not to mention eco-friendly too.  Just use flyers or magazine pages to create some tassels or newspapers as buntings.  Then decorate them with some washi tapes or colourful markers.  Awesome right?    I wonder what I can create with some t-nuts which I have plenty at home. Can’t wait for the next party so that I can let my creative juices flow.

  4. A Busy Weekend

    May 18, 2013 by barbara

    Over the weekend, we attended a housewarming party as well as an 8 year old birthday party. Yeah it was a pretty busy weekend for everyone in our household. We had fun at the housewarming bbq party. The host even serenaded the guests with some songs on his electric bass. Music was great because the host just bought some new dr strings from musicians friend.  We also had a swell time at the kid’s birthday party and the highlight of the day was when everyone was given some frozen delights – Zipzicle Pop.  They are so good especially on a hot day.  I had a lot of these when  I was a kid.  Sure brings back some good memories.

  7. Clarks New Arrival

    May 7, 2013 by barbara

    Have you checked out Clarks shoes this season?  I was at their shop last weekend and spotted a few pairs that I really like.  I love their wedges and I have been thinking if I should get a pair eventhough I have another pair of wedge which I haven’t worn yet.  It feels pretty uncomfortable when standing for some time so I think I may need to get the spenco insoles from bestinsoles.com.  I could not resist not buying that pair of wedge because it was on sale.  Now, back to Clarks.  I am also looking at some flats for my next vacation.  This little beauty just caught my eyes.

  9. Who Has Money to Waste on Overpriced Tattoo Equipment?

    April 28, 2013 by barbara

    Who you know has a a lot of open extra money? I can’t think of anyone, no less than not anyone I realize personally. Major league baseball players are doing alright. But unless you’re an experienced athlete, you’re probably – at all like me – always trying to find a bargain. That’s why if you’re looking to get into tattooing and require some cheap tattoo equipment or tattoo practice skin, just check out www.thelashop.com. The web site is fantastic, with everything you will or could need, and at an excellent price, too. I’ve shopped around, and also you save a whole lot going to this site, as opposed to a physical store where there’s gonna be mark up for the middle men and middle women. Sure, they have to make a buck, too, nonetheless they might as well take that from someone else and leave you using your money that you earned. Seems only fair. If you’re a novice, get a gun here, if you’re an expert, upgrade your materials. When some potential client coming in thinking of getting his first, or her third, or his twentieth tattoo, you’re going to want to display the very best equipment you will discover.

    Also put up a lot of pictures of past work you’ve done, or have a binder and print the pictures out very nice and put them within. Put the binder in the waiting room so people are able to see you’re legit. Even if you’re not. But if you’re not legit, then all the more reason why you need good equipment. Good equipment will go a long way – let’s put it this way, the tattoos I make now are far more advanced than the ones I used to make back from the day. Anyone who’s seeking to get into the art, and also at an affordable rate, owes it privately to check out every one of the equipment and supplies you may get at the LA Shop. You’ll be blown away about what you may get for how little you can find it. Then target your craft this will let you blast.
