Just the other day, I was shopping at Michael's for a totally different DIY project and I happened to come across the most yummy yarn ever! Yes, I described yarn as yummy. This yarn is so soft, bright, and fluffy! To quote Despicable Me, "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!" The cherry on top had to be that they were also on sale from $6.99 to $3.99 AND I had a 25% off my entire purchase coupon! Can you say bargain?! I had been wanting to crate a fluffy arm knit blanket, but didn't want to shell out the big buck for the Merino yarn, that stuff can get expensive! So, when I found these beauties at Michael's I knew I had found an amazing alternative! Check out the video below and come arm knit some fluffy arm knit blankets with me!

Mad Lib Challenge - Mad Libs & Mimosas

Jordan and I took the YouTube Mad Lib Challenge and I think we did pretty good! The point of the game is to come up with ridiculous Mad Libs while drinking mimosas and trying not to laugh with the mimosa (or other beverage) in your mouth. It made for a fun game! Let us know if you enjoyed it as well and be sure to give the video a thumbs up on my YouTube Channel  and subscribe for more videos!

Wine & Glitter Gummy Bears!

Wine and glitter gummy bears, the ultimate girly treat! What's better than edible glitter and wine?! Okay, I'm sure we could name a few, but these DIY Wine Gummy Bears are so incredibly precious and are sure to be a hit at your next event, bachelorette party or even baby shower!

You can use any wine for this recipe, which ever you like best! I used Moscato wine because it's very sweet and so you could see the glitter. To make the gummy bears pink just add one drop of red food dye or simply use a blush wine.

You can add a little more sugar to this recipe if you like your gummies very sweet.

1 cup wine
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
3 tbps plain gelatin

Heat together in small pot over medium low heat for two minutes until dissolved. Keep temp below 90 degree Fahrenheit if you want to keep the alcohol from burning off. Immediately fill the gummy bear molds using a dropper and place in the fridge for 90 minutes at least. You can also place in the freezer for a few minutes after they have set up in the fridge. This will make the gummy bear easier to remove from the molds.
