Banana Hair Treatment

Ya just gotta try this. I have been wanting to try a Banana hair treatment/mask forever.
So the other I thought I would give it a try. I had some over ripe banana's so it was time.

I found a few recipes but decided on the one I found at e-how. Here's a quick peek---
2 bananas
3 Tablespoons mayo
1 Tablespoon olive oil
essential oils ( if you want, I didn't use any )
I added a little squeeze of honey to

I put the treatment on my hair, in the morning, on my dry hair. I left it in for about an hour. Then washed it out & shampooed my hair.

After the treatment my hair was so soft and manageable, I think my hair loved it.
Like I said before it is awesome & your hair will be happy :)

Another Stazon experiment

I got another stanzon re-fill today. A 50% off coupon made it even better  lol.
I got a small spray bottle and put some rubbing alcohol it and added the stazon. I added quiet a few drops of the stazon. I quit adding the ink when I thought I had the color pink I wanted. I am sure it would take alot more to get even close to a red. The name of the stazon is blazing red.
I just love how the "new" homemade spray ink turned out. They dry so fast & the colors are quite vivid, just love it.
Here are some pics :)

I added a few more drops to the bottle. I want it a little darker.

I added a couple really close sprays to my canvas. I put down a big piece of canvas down before I spray to catch all the over spray, and as a bonus I can use the canvas for other projects.

Re-cycle journal with Jana

I just love the on-line live classes with Jana over at Jana is so talented and so much fun. She truely inspires!!!!!!! Janas blog is at, go check it out.

This journal was made up from junk mail & envelopes. It was a blast!!! So sit back & enjoy all the inky, sewing, paper towel, fiber, shipping tag, ribbon, paper, button, fabric, canvas goodness.
So here is my creation :)




I had so much fun just letting my creative juices flow making this puppy that I am saving more "junk" to make another one.

By the way, my journal was made with what I have on hand, I didn't go and buy anything to make this. I have been on a quest to use the supplies I already have and I think it pushes me creatively to dig a little deeper using what I got.

Happy Holidays,

Christmas candy cans

Here are some more pull tab cans. I made a few throughout the year for birthdays, but decided to make them for co-worker gifts for Christmas. They are super fun to do.

My favorite cans  to use are the Great Value fruit cans found at Walmart. Any can will do, but the bottom of the can has to have the same kind of bottom on it as the top of the can.
First I took the lable off the can & washed it out, then let it dry.
When I first started on these cans I was going to use some of my scrapbooking papers, but I only have a few leftover from last year. I have been on a quest to use the supplies I have first. So I decided to use wrapping paper, and it works out great. I cut the paper to 10" x 4 1/4 minus a little more on the 4 1/ 4 end.

After the paper is cut I used elmers glue to glue the paper to the can. Works great.

Wrap the paper around the can.

Next I traced around the top of the can, but that size is still a little to big so you have to cut some off from inside the traced line. Easy lol !!!

Then cut a piece from the circle you just cut out. This piece fits under the pull tab.

The fun part is here, stuffing the candy in the cans. I used suckers, little candy canes, red & white mints, little mini mixed candy bars, chocolate coins & bells. Whatever you like!!!

Then I used some super glue to attach the bottom of the can back on. Be careful and go easy on the super glue.
Then I got some of the Christmas curling ribbon, 2 pieces and tied around the pull tab. I also added a little business like card to it, wishing happy holidays from, and hubbys name on it.
They were easy, fun to do,  and turned out cute,

I will post a pic of the finished cans-------- I forgot to take one   lol.

December Daily - Dec 1

It is fineally here, December. I thought I would start off my project with a pic of my new camera.
I have been wanting a new camera for some time. On Black Friday morning, early about 3 I got up. Craig couldn't sleep either so he came downstairs. On his cell phone he was getting  updates from newegg. There was the Canon Rebel on sale, so I thought I would do a little snooping around to check it out. I had done some but wanted to do a little more. The reviews were mostly good & I had heard alot about the camera from other scrapbooking, picture taking ladies. They all gave the rebel the thumbs up. So we went for it, and as luck would have it I got the camera today, just in time to start the project. So here are a few pics taken with my Christmas pressy my new Canon Rebel.

Happy December,
