D.I.Y. Dollhouse Review

D.I.Y. Dollhouse: Build and Decorate a Toy House Using Everyday Materials Review & Giveaway

When I was young I always wanted a dollhouse. I just did not want a dollhouse, I wanted to MAKE a dollhouse. At the time I had no idea the time, effort or wood cutting involved, and my dream dollhouse never got built.

Bizarre Bear and Krazy Kitty Ugly Snuglies

When I was a child I was always reminded it was “what was on the inside that counts”. I took this lesson and applied it to friends, boyfriends and really everybody I encounter in my adult life. I believe that a person is defined not by their outer shell but what is in their heart and soul is what is important. I believe this to be true and think that it is a message that is getting lost in this beauty conscious world we are living in. There is more importance on filters, injections and basic photo editing then what somebody thinks or feels.
