Wow, what a sad turn of events. It’s been months upon months since I’ve updated here. I feel sad about my little blog. The thing is, we’ve had so much going on here, I haven’t had the time to do any sort of crafting in a long time! School is starting up next week so I might have some more time to myself, but I’m still not sure since I’ve recently taken on a new project. (big surprise, right? If it’s not a craft, it’s at least a project of some sort)
It’s no secret I am an entrepreneur. I love being in business for myself. Honestly, if I had a choice between being behind a desk making money for and taking orders from someone else, or taking a chance and working for myself doing what *I* want, even though it may take a while to see a harvest, I will choose that any day. I am a carefree spirit. I can’t be pinned down with a 9-5 job. ha! So after Booty Parlor closed the doors to the direct sales department, I decided it was time to stop going the independent consultant and take a chance and do it all myself. Nothing wrong with direct sales, I just didn’t want to keep doing that.
My new venture combines my love of all things entrepreneurial with my appreciation for healthier, cleaner living.
On my site you will find top of the line juicers, grain mills, yogurt makers, sprouters, vermicomposting bins, urban growing bins and lots more to come! If it sounds at all interesting to you, I’d appreciate your visit. I’ve also got another blog connected to the store where I will post healthy recipes and tips for sustainable gardening. (It’s still in its infancy, so bear with me) Consider following me on twitter and facebook as well!
I’m not giving up on this blog. I do love it here. It just may be a while before I can post anything for a while. I hope you’ll stick around!
Man, I love House Party! Not only is it super fun to host parties with your friends, but I love that they often introduce you to new products that you may not have tried before. The Perler House Party is one such party.
I had seen these little doodads before but never really knew how much fun they were. I have to admit, I may have had as much fun as the kids did with these things.
Depending on the kit you buy, you may receive a square peg board, or a shaped one, as we did for the party. I chose to bring the craft to my Daisy Girl Scout meeting as our opening craft, where the girls were able to choose either a monkey or a lizard.
It’s super easy to put these together. You basically just put the beads on the peg board in whatever way you want, place a piece of wax paper on top, and then iron over it in small circles.
When it cools, flip it over and do the same.
The batch for the party also came with key rings which was fun. Sadly, our meeting wrapped up so quickly that I didn’t get any photos of the girls’ completed projects. Boo. BUT, here are some examples from the Perler gallery that I really liked.
Did you know you can also make 3D crafts?
Some of my favorites are the old game characters.
As you can tell, you are only limited by your imagination.
I can’t recommend this craft enough. It’s saved us many meltdowns during the super cold we had not too long ago. When the kids were pent up inside the house, this would keep them occupied for hours. Definitely check them out! And don’t forget to check out House Party. Let me know if you get selected for any parties, yourself!
