Spring Dishes from Avon!

This morning it is raining once again in Montana. I really want to see the sun! My whole weekend has been dark and gloomy. This morning I got onto the computer to look at flowers to make myself happier and feel more "springish", if that is even a word, and I was reminded of these super cute bowls! So now I am thinking I just might get an early Mother's Day gift for myself, from myself! 

I am really excited because my peonies are actually coming up this year. I have had them for 3 years now and every year they only grow leaves. This year however, I have way more leaves and shoots than I have ever seen and so I am actually not sure if I will have flowers or not but I am wishing and hoping that is a good indication that I will! Fingers are crossed! I did plant some Basil, Rosemary and Cilantro for some big pots outside. I really enjoy gardening. I started just last year and I gotta say, its so fun! I also planted Tulips for the first time and they are really pretty. I will take a picture of them when its not raining out.

Baby Doll Dress FREE CROCHET PATTERN - INTERMEDIATE

Baby Doll Dress FREE CROCHET PATTERN

I was just wondering if was the only one that has like 80 different projects going and not wanting to really work on one thing or the other.... Then when that happens,  overwhelm sets in and I just feel like I can never get them all done. One at a time one at a time right? WRONG! I just start a whole other project that I know is small and I know I will get done leaving all the others to frustrate me another day. HA!

So if you are like me then you will appreciate this pattern that I am going to put in here! Its a cute little baby doll dress! First time for me making clothing. Gotta start somewhere! :) 
PhotobucketDRESS: Finished size is about 4" x 4"1/2. Use an H hook. Grab some buttons or maybe some ribbon for the neck of the dress. Its yours so you can decorate it how ever you want! :) I used orange yarn because - it was easy to reach from where I was sitting at the time ;) Pink I think or yellow would be much cuter. Maybe even pink and then changing to white when you do the ruffle on the bottom and around the neck area. Read the pattern through before you decide :) And see the pictures! 
Have FUN!

What took me so long to try this lotion??

GOOD DAY EVERYONE! I hope you are all doing well. It has been raining here in Montana for about 2 weeks now, but today the sun is out and it feels really warm. I am very happy. Makes for a perfect Saturday. 

I work during the week but love to paint and garden during the weekends. My plans are to take pictures of my daughter before she goes back to Korea :(, plant my garlic and onions and work on my paintings. I have two that are in "the process of". A rabbit is one and a large Elk overlooking Montana is the other. 

I also wanted to share with you this lotion from Avon. I know this is going to sound really horrible. I have been selling Avon for about 7 years now and not once have I actually tried the Moisture Therapy basic lotion. I am that girl who likes to buy the smelly lotions. So I have always picked up the smelly lotions. Last night however, my hands were so dry so I decided to open up a bottle that I had laying around as an extra. My garden friends always swear by it. I used it last night and I have to say, it actually works. I put it on my feet too and make me feel better! I feel ashamed because I haven't used it in all these years. I have tried pretty much everything else. Now that extra bottle is MINE! 


I am going to get back to my Saturday now. I just wanted to pop in and share this with you. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! If you are feeling chatty, let me know what you are doing this weekend in the comments below! I would love to hear from you! 

And let me just say THANK YOU to those of you who do come in here and an HUGE THANK YOU to those who order from me on a regular basis! You are GREATLY APPRECIATED by me and my family!

Hottest trend in skin care?? FACE MASKS!

THE HOTTEST TREND IN SKIN CARE
Inspired by ancient Asian beauty rituals, the sheet masks hold a generous amount of serum and are designed to fit the contours of your face like a second skin to reduce
evaporation. Infused essences are continuously and evenly released for immediate and enhanced benefits.


For immediate lift or instant glow, use the mask 1-2 times per week after cleansing and before
your regular skin care routine. 

Step 1:   Remove mask from package and unfold carefully. 

Step 2:  Place gently and carefully on face. It may not fit your face perfectly and that is to be expected. Not all faces are the same. Your beauty is your own!

Step 3:   Let sit on your face for about 15- 20 min. Some people have let it sit on longer than that. It all depends on you and how you feel. 

Step 4:   Carefully remove mask and message in serum that is left over on your face. 

There is a lot of product left on the mask and it almost appears to some to be a "waste" of money and product. My advise to you is refold it gently or to lay it flat in a plastic zip lock bag and store it in a place that it will not be manipulated. Then your next use, you can again unfold carefully, using the same mask again. Let me know what you think here in the comments below!
