What I am Watching Right Now

Are you like me? Overwhelmed with all the options there are of what to watch everyday? Lots of options are good but sometimes I just feel like I am missing one of those really great shows. But for now I though I would tell you guys about some of the shows I am enjoying right now.

1) Castle- A crime solving, humorous show that always has a twist that you aren't expecting.

2) Celebrity Apprentice- Even though it is two hours, it just gets you hooked!

3) Off the Map- It is a doctor show, but it takes place on an island and has unique diseases and problems in the hospital.

4) American Idol- Finally a season where it seems pretty much everyone single person is talented and Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez brought the show alive.

5) Survivor- I have been a long time Survivor fan and I am really enjoying this season where they have introduced Redemption Island (so someone could possibly come back into the game)

6) The Amazing Race- I have traveled a lot and this show is just very enjoyable to watch.

7) The Big Bang Theory- I have just started watching this show, but everyone needs to at least try it, its hilarious!

8) The Next Great Restaurant- Just discovered this on demand, they are basically trying to find the next casual-dining restaurant (like Chipotle).

Now for a show that I watch every single day and am in love with:
9) The Ellen Show- Hosted by Ellen Degeneres, so much fun to watch and really brightens my day.

Hope this helped you guys to find some new shows to check out, thanks for reading! Now I have a question for you:

What are some of your favorite shows?

Wednesday's Etsy Artisan: Howard's Home

This week I have an absolutely amazing shop to share with you guys:
Howard's Home

All of the proceeds of their sales go towards medical bills for their little boy, Michael, who was born with OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). 

After looking at all of their products, all I can say is that I am hungry! Their soaps look amazing, and so realistic. Just to name a few of the shapes the soaps come in: popcorn, gummy bears and so many more designs. They also have some super unique lip balms like Bunny Farts, Chocolate Donut and Peanut Butter Chocolate. This shop is fantastic and has recieved 100% positive feedback from 1051 reviews (that's amazing). Here are just a few of the items they have but be sure to check out their full etsy shop, the link is above!

Discover Something New: Rendezvous Express

I came across the shop and was amazed at how gorgeous her jewelry was. Although she only has 4 items listed at the moment, they are truly unique and beautiful. She even includes what the gemstone means, like wealth or luck. And we could all use some of that in our lives :D Check out her items and shop now!

My First Ring!

After having received my package I ordered from eBay containing ring blanks I am so excited to announce that I have listed my first ring: A hamburger ring. I hope you guys like it! The hamburger half is actually left over from some hamburger and fries cuff links that I made around Christmas time. So I just applied some super glue and voila!!

Right now it is listed for $6.00, but I wanted to know if you thought that was a reasonable price?


Friday Fun #1

All I can say is that Friday is probably one of my favorite days of the week, although Saturday is close in the running. And to add to the already amazing Friday mood, I thought I would share a few jokes, brain teasers and optical illusions with you each Friday. I introduce to you my very first Friday Fun!

Q: How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Only one, but the light bulb has to WANT to change.


If you continue to focus on the cross in the center of the image you will notice that .. the circle of violet circles will soon DISSAPPEAR completely .. and you will see only the green spot (which is actually violet). 

Brain Teaser
Which of the following statements are true, and which are false?
1. Only one of the statements is false
2. Exactly two of the statements are false.
3. Only three of the statements are false.
4. Exactly four of the statements are false.
5. All five of these statements are false.

Leave your guess as a comment, first person to guess correctly will get their shop featured on my blog and in the sidebar :)
I will post the answer next Friday!

Coming Soon: Food Rings

All I can say is that I am so excited!! I had ordered some ring blanks from China about 2 months ago, thinking they were never going to get here. But the package arrived today and AHHH!!! I just can't believe they are finally here. I have actually already made two rings that I hope to list in my etsy shop: very soon! The two rings I have made so far are a pink sprinkled donut and hamburger rings. I have had a lot of people telling me that they wish I made jewelry for people without pierced ears and I am so happy that I finally can. Look out for them and if you have any ideas for what you would like to see made let me know. Thanks for reading my blog :D

The First Day of Spring

It's the first full day of Spring and I couldn't be more excited that it's finally here!! Although our day here started off with thunderstorms and hard rain, but it has cleared up and the day has turned out to be not a bad day. We are expecting more rain this week, but clearer warmer weather is on the way finally.

Pray for Japan

As most of you probably know Japan was hit by both an earthquake and tsunami this past week and is currently devastated. I just wanted to take some time and ask for everyone to pray for Japan, and if you can donate some of your hard-earned cash to aid those who have been ripped from their homes, family and friends. I have also noticed on esty that many sellers are listing items and will be donating some or all of the profit to help Japan.

Check out this treasury that was featured on the front page for a few of the items:

My prayers go out to everyone and Japan and anyone who was affected by this horrible disaster.

It's almost time for gardening!!

I have to say that I am very excited about the fact that it is starting to warm up and about to be time that I can start gardening. This is actually my first year growing a full size garden (last year I just had pots). I already started some of the seeds indoors, although none of them have sprouted yet, I think I might just have to wait and plant the seeds directly into the ground. Hopefully having a garden won't create more stress in my life, I'm hoping it will relieve it but we'll see.

In other news, I have two brand new items in my store: St.Patricks Day Cake and Ice Cream Sandwich (as well tomorrow I will be listing Pumpkin Pie Earrings again.) Please check them out:

Thanks for reading!!!!!!

S'mores Earrings

These bring back so many memories of camping with my family, and hopefully they do the same for you! These were one of the three earrings that I sold and decided to remake. They are a little over 1cm on each side and they are just so much fun to make and wear! I have a pair of my own that I love to show-off :D
They are listed in my etsy shop for $6.50:
Thanks for checking my blog out and I hope you like the new earrings!

What's new?

It's sad to say but my streak of listing an item a day is over. Now its back to making some new items, yay!! What am I planning on making? Well right now I have a few ideas including St. Patrick's Day Cake (I was going to make the cake part green), ice cream sandwich, cherry cheesecake, fortune cookies and hopefully a ton more things so keep you eyes posted for them.

As well, I continue my series of Etsy Artisan features tomorrow with a super-yummy shop (*hint hint*) so please come back and check her shop out!

Now this is probably kind of random, but am I the only one excited about American Idol tonight? I can't wait to see the girls (??) sing tonight. They have such great talent this year and I am so excited.

This was a pretty boring post now that I look at it, but ETSY ARTISAN FEATURE TOMORROW!!!
