Now I want to give manger Kudos to Dianarazana. Diana was the only person on YouTube as well as the internet that I was able to find an Eco Friendly way to get adhesive off glass. In addition it didn’t have me rubbing my fingers to nubs or make my skin crack. I have tried everything, hot boiling water, soap, vinegar, regular hot & cold water, rubbing alcohol, and burning it off.
Now I have eczema which means I have super sensitive skin, so after trying every method listed above my hand look like the Sahara desert in a drought. Very, very painful! What was the magic that did the trick? Plain Canola Oil, it took 5 to 10 seconds to get mild adhesive off and up to maybe 25 seconds for the stubborn ones. The aewsome upside my hand were being exfoliated as I rubbed the stick glue off.
Wait there more! It doesn’t just work on glass, it work on just about anything. As she explain in her video it can be used on multiple surfaces.
Well it’s Challenge #47 over at My Scrap Room. If you haven’t checked out who these ladies are go there right now…. I’ll wait… go on you know you want to check out their page. http://myscraproom.ning.com.
Now that you have check out these fabulous ladies out this is the project I created. Now it’s not as good as some of the other ladies. However I thinks it’s kind of cute.
I wonder when random texting became okay to some people. This has not been my first random texter that been trolling. I don’t know if someone has a grudge against me or if I was born lucky to get troller on my cell. Yesterday I received a text at 1:45am which I didn’t hear since my phone was on my husband side of the nightstand. So around 9am I check my phone to someone texting me saying “Wass up girl”. Now my mother has been known to do that and she changes her phone number almost every month. But we haven’t been on speaking term as of late so I just text back a simple hello.
Man I really wished that was my mom but sadly it wasn’t. No in fact it was a troller and for those of you that don’t know what a troller is, it’s a person who either intentionally or pointlessly yells and swears and insults someone with no or some purpose. Trolling is usually accompanied with spam, capital letters, bad grammar, and immature comments. They can be racist, elitest, or anything else that has to do with stereotypes.
Now this person must have been at least 18-20 years of age because his grammar was so bad it made want to through a book at him through my phone. I told him he had the wrong number to please leave me alone. But did I get that no! I got penis picture and immature cussing. When I told him if he didn’t stop texting he would be getting a rude awakening from law enforcement. That seems to really get his attention. After a few more unnecessary bad grammar and bad language via text it all stopped. But not before he stupidly sent his face and his friends face to me. This only proved my theory 18-20 years of age troller.
If I ever see this guy I want to meet his mother and father and ask them if they know about their son or sons conduct. Also what kind of morals are you teaching him, because from his actions its doesn’t seem that you are. If you can’t control your kids don’t have them! Because you don’t make babies to make friends. You have babies to make men and women to become better then you ever wore not worse.
I know this is super late, but I wanted to let everyone know what can be found at Michael’s when they want to get rid of stuff fast. There are some good stuff as well as some duds, that what you get when you buy one of these grab bags. It’s a roll of the dice.
Since this is February and there are lots of people out there watching their dollars. I thought it would be neat that from Feb 2 -14 prices will be reduced, so if you thinking you don’t know what to get your geeky husband or gamer girlfriend. Come on over and buy that special someone something unique.
I know this is a day late but at least you won’t be a dollar short when you hear the news. As of January 31st – February 2nd if you present this to your Michael’s store you will save on already reduced products throughout the store. Which includes jewelry, stickers, & much more.
Now don’t be fooled by the Michael’s website which states 50%-70% but with this you can save 90%. Now be advised not all Michael’s employees may be aware that this event is going on and some stores may say 50%-70%. So do your homework, call and conform no need to waste your time by rushing down there.
Have fun people, and if I can I will be Vlog about this and showing of my $2 grab plus what I get from Michael’s 90% off sale.
Well this week’s challenge was brought to you by “My Scrap Room” you should check them out. The group of ladies is really awesome http://myscraproom.ning.com/
The challenge was Valentine themed and as you know I’m not one for Valentine stuff since it just a sore reminder of bad birthday, bad gifts, and people forgetting. However since the whole time I was doing this challenge I kept my husband in mine, meaning I did this as if I was making this for him. I think it turn out pretty cool.
The Pastor wife had a baby shower last week and as much as I would have loved to be there my son and I were really sick. As you know sickness and pregnant women don’t mix, actually sickness and people just don’t mix. So we quarantine ourselves in our house for as long as the virus was in us. Even thought it was a week and half it felt like a month we didn’t see the sun.
So to get me out of the funk I made this cute card for her, I would have embellished it more but I couldn’t find my gel pens before I had to hand this to her. I think it turn out pretty good considering I was knee deep in flu/cold.
Well Valentine’s Day is coming around again and I guess some one could consider the card below a Valentine’s Day Card. However since my birthday lands on February 14th I really don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day for a few reasons.
Here is Monica’s Top 5 Reason why I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day:
It’s my birthday not Valentine’s Day. Card Makers had a slow sales month in February thus the day was born to pick up sales.
Each time I go out on my birthday the price doubled on every restaurant, venue, and Movie Theaters.
Locations are packed, good luck trying to find parking.
I keep getting hearts and valentines candy rather than a Happy Birthday Card. I not one for pink shape hearts.
Gifts prices go up on my Valentine’s Day, which is why I get stuck with hearts and valentine candy. It’s the only thing that’s cheap.
However I do celebrate my husband and I anniversary on February 1st which is why I have created this card below. It is also being put in Cardz Crazy RED, BLACK, & WHITE challenge. So that killed two birds with one stone. http://www.cardztv.blogspot.com/
When I was attending The Art Institute of San Francisco, I was in a Photoshop class that was teaching CS. Now in 2003 that was cutting edge stuff, at that time not a lot of schools were even up-to-date with the newest software. Now it’s 2013 and Photoshop CS doesn’t cut it anymore. So what is an older woman to do? Well if you’re lucky like me you marry a man that knows how to supply you with the latest software.
Yup, you evolve to CS6… Well no… My husband may have CS6 but it’s not installed on my computer. Currently I am only at CS4 which is not bad. So what do I do? How do you use it when you don’t have an Institute or a husband that is too busy to teach you? You turn to YouTube or any other media site that can show you when you can’t dish out mountains of cash to go back to school.
For example below you will see two pictures; the one on the left is the original. As you can see it’s too dark to make out what I’m looking at. But after looking at 1stoptutorials and TayvinKnightPhoto I was able to improve my photo.
Left – Original Photo
Right – Photoshoped
I can honestly say I am no wizard when it comes to technology. I really don’t care what the difference between an Ipad and Ipod. But if you want to make your stuff look better it doesn’t hurt to check out what’s new and learn about it.
