One of my favorite things about crafts is glitter. I knew without a doubt I would have a lot of it at my wedding. Today I made a few of my vases! It is about 19 degrees out and still snowing! SNOW DAY!
Check out the picture below on how to make them! Be sure to pin it too!

The collar is made of two rings that unsnap from one another. The outer ring has an ID window, and the inner ring lists content indicators. Simply snap the outer ring off and back on to display "Soap," "Lotion," and more. A blank setting lets the user write in their own content indicator.
A large opening means it's easy to fill and clean your GoToob. The small 1.25 fl. oz. size slips easily into pockets, bags, purses, and other tight spots. The medium 2 fl. oz. size features a handy suction cup that can briefly attach to walls for moments when you need your hands free. And a large 3 fl. oz. size gives you maximum volume for longer times between refills.

"As an engaged bride-to-be, I understand what it is like to try to find beautiful items for myself and my wedding without spending a fortune. I create all of my jewelry to be affordable so everyone can enjoy it."
- Favorite type of jewelry to make: Stamped jewelry. It is so cathartic to be able to come home after a long day and be able to sit down with a hammer and make something beautiful. There is something special about being able to put so much of myself into a piece of jewelry. I literally start with a piece of metal and, by the time I'm done stamping, oxidizing, and polishing, I have made that piece of metal into a work of art. And each piece is different. There will never be two that are exactly the same.
- Getting started: I have always been a creative person. My mom is a professional photographer so I guess it runs in the family. I've tried every type of craft out there, from sewing to scrap booking to pottery. I always really enjoyed making jewelry. I officially started doing stamped jewelry about a year ago when went to buy a piece myself and all I could find was sterling silver. I knew that if I didn't want to pay that much, other people didn't want to as well. So I set out to start making affordable versions myself and fell in love with it. I played with several metals until I came upon aluminum and I've never looked back. I prefer it over sterling any day and it really makes it affordable so everyone can enjoy stamped jewelry.
- College: I actually haven't graduated yet! I will be finishing up the last of my pre-med/human biology degree next year. I had planned on going directly to PA (physician assistant) school after graduation but now I'm holding off indefinitely on that so I can continue with my jewelry. I have found something I really enjoy doing with the jewelry and I can see myself doing it for years to come.
Ann may give you something extra special at Always There Designs if you mention that SAHM&TW(2b) sent you!
We will let you in on our secret to making yummy hamburgers and chicken marinade that make you look like a star! Be warned that we were both taught to "Eyeball" the measurements and not to actually use the measuring spoons.
I found the best game ever for summer :)
It is called BearPong and is a giant version of Beer Pong. If anyone knows us, well you realize one of us is awesome at it and one is not - you decide. Ok, I did try to win some random machine at the Food Festival in Cleveland and failed, twice. I didn't even get a sticker :(
