Hey guys, I’m sorry to say that I have gotten sick. The weather is a bit crazy around here so it was only a matter of time I guess. Anyway, I am gonna take a break from posting. I’ll probably be back for Thirsty Thursday or Factual Friday. Happy last day of December ! πŸ™‚

DIY: Mirror into Chalkboard

image

We all like a good old-fashioned chalkboard to remind us of the things we’d otherwise forget. So why don’t we make a chalkboard out of a mirror (or picture frame) that’s good, but not so old-fashioned.

This project requires:

*Mirror or picture frame
*Spray Paint Primer
*Chalkboard Spray Paint
*Paint (if you want to paint the frame of your mirror)
*Chalk
*Masking Tape

Directions:
Spray primer onto your mirror and frame. If you don’t want to paint your frame just apply primer to mirror. Let dry. Paint your frame any color you like. You can masking tape to off the frame, so you won’t get paint on it. Start painting your chalkboard paint onto the mirror. Paint about 3 coats onto your mirror making sure it’s dried completely in between each coat. Let the chalkboard paint cure overnight. When done: remove tape, take a piece of chalk and rub it all over your chalkboard surface then erase it with a dry cloth. Enjoy!

Where are you gonna hang your chalkboard? πŸ™‚

The Wonders of: Roobios Tea

image

My favorite TV show on the planet, No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, constantly reminds us that a cup of Roobios tea has the power to relax the body and mind. The famous Roobios tea (aka Bush tea) is the reason I get through the day as peacefully as I do. So, I suggest while we all have these few days off, you snug up with a cup of Bush tea and watch this amazing series. Enjoy the break!  πŸ™‚

College!?!?!?!?!

image

Everyone wants to be successful, and most of the time success is found by getting an education. Now college isn’t a small step, there’s a lot of things you have to worry about. And the biggest thing every college student is worrying about is money. Not being able to pay for college is one of the main reasons many high school graduates don’t continue their education. Of course we could all get a student loans, but I don’t think any of us would like to be in debt our whole lives. So, you’re probably waiting for me to tell you how to get into a good college without owing the government boat loads of money. Well my friends, I’m not quiet sure how to do such a thing.  I will, however, redirect you to a couple of websites that break it down for you.

Good luck to us all!!! πŸ™‚

Siblings

image

When my little sister went out with her friends the other day I realized how much I need her in my life. Most of the time we’re always fighting with our siblings, whether older or younger we find something to argue about. Here are some ways to decrease to quarreling. ↓

β€’Compromise – try to hear the other person out and find a solution that you both agree to
β€’Be mature – if you’re the older person in the relationship make a wise decision that you think will solve the problem ← this goes for younger ones too
β€’Share – don’t be stingy with things
β€’ Cooperate – don’t be hard-headed, hear the other person out

I hope these things help you guys out and make your life a little more peaceful. πŸ™‚
