Glitter Epoxy Tumbler’s are the bomb! I love glitter and bold colors. Personalized drink ware is super fun. What I have realized recently, is that adding smooth, crystal clear Epoxy to the mix just raised my cup game.
I have been personalizing cups with vinyl for some time. Now I am cooking with fire! I have added a few things to my arsenal and really created a fun way to make one of a kind tumblers.
A few things were purchased to make the cup coating process easier. I also use a wide variety of supplies that I keep stocked on a normal basis to create swirls, color, pigment and finishes. Here is a list of some of the things that I use on the cups.
The epoxy process is lengthy. Each cup can take up to 12-14 hours or more depending on the complexity of the cup that I am making. Each round of Epoxy takes 5-7 hours to cure.
If I have a pre-ordered cup with a decal that decal is actually sealed into the cup and coated with a layer of epoxy. It can never be removed and is protected by the epoxy.
I have several cups that I have made without decals so if someone wanted that cup I can add personalization to it and either leave the decal on top for immediate delivery or add another layer of epoxy on top for a 24-48 hour pickup.
Each cup is a one of a kind, it can be reproduced with similarities and style but will never be identical. There are also small imperfections on every cup because the epoxy has a mind of its own. Most are barely noticeable, but still present with a careful eye.
Stainless steel tumbler’s are not dishwasher safe. It breaks down the magic on the inside of the cup. Same goes with these. Hand Wash Only!
I will take any orders and give pricing on custom cups. If I think I cannot reproduce the order I would also let you know at the time of order request.
Basic cups with any finish and a decal are set pricing. Custom Cups and special requests are priced at time of order.
Ordering preferably through Facebook , or Instagram @itsbobbie23. Email @ email@example.com
I will meet for pickup within reason or its 10.00 for shipping. I accept Venmo @Bobbie-Lambert-2, PayPal @ firstname.lastname@example.org or cash. All custom orders must be prepaid.
You have and will make the time for things that are important to you. #TRUTHBOMB. That is a hard truth when you apply it to all aspects of your life, so let’s not do that, I’m not trying to be that deep. Today, were just going to pretend it pertains to doing good during the week and planning your meals for this post.
Like literally, every week someone asks me how I meal prep. How do you find the time to do it? How do you eat food that you cooked a few days before?
It is not unfathomable and once you do it a few times, and realize it is the most convenient, awesomest thing in the entire free world, you will get it. Yep, you will drink the Kool-Aid. I blogged about it last year too, here is the link, if you want to see the basics. It has some really fundamental ideas and concepts. https://bobbielambert.com/2018/04/08/meal-prep/
Every time, I hear someone say…….
I don’t have time to cook during the week.
We have practice and have to get fast food too much.
I eat out for lunch every day and spend my shoe money on food.
I am getting cankles because I eat processed food.
I am like………this is me, this is my life. When I DO NOT PLAN MY WEEK, this is my life. Probably a little worse because I whine about it.
Then I blame my husband for making me eat something I feel is not in my game plan, but tastes pretty damn good, and probably was my idea.
It is easy to get off track when you’re not prepared or prepped. Then I blew it during the week and my weekend just is not as fun as it could be.
That’s why I plan and prep my week. Make it simple, I prepped for an entire week on the grill at the same time and it is fail proof.
As you can see there is some corn on the grill. That is for an InstaPot dinner I am making in the house while we grill for the kids.
I prep for my kids too. I made them InstaPot Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes at the same time, in the same pot. 33 minutes and a 3lb meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes done to perfection. Add in the corn from the grill and they have a couple meals for the week.
I throw in a Turkey burger and veggies for them one night that I prepped for myself and then they get to pick one night for Chick file. Boom Weekly dinners done!
No Meal Prep Friday’s or Saturdays. This is why I am not a size 0. I do what I want on the weekends. I’m kind of a rebel like that. I have reserve of course because there’s some decisions you cannot come back from, but for the most part I try to act like a normal person on the weekends :).
RECAP: I Insta-potted a 3lb turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes at the same time, we have corn on the cob, 12-Turkey burger patties and my HUGE pile of veggies grilling away. You got to multi-task. I drink the wine and I do the things.
Hope this gives you some ideas because the possibilities are endless!
I am sure you have noticed two in one tools making a come back. Honesty, when I first noticed them I did not pay much attention because being an 90’s child it reminded me of a crimper. The thought of another hair tool taking up space in my cabinet was not that appealing. The Revlon One-Step-Volumizer Hair Dryer did make an impression on me in an accidental kind of way.
I had a hair appointment two weeks ago and low and behold my hair dresser pulls this Revlon One-Step Volumizing Hair Dryer out and say’s lets use this to dry your hair today.
She made it look super effortless, but thats what these professionals do right? I thought that I could probably use this on my kids hair pretty easily and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So to Target I went.
This Revlon Brand styling brush was the only one they carried so it made my purchasing choice simple. I am not going to lie, I have previously checked out the New Dyson Brand that has made its way to the world. I like to stalk high end products. This was definitely a fraction of the cost compared to the 500.00 price tag the Dyson is carrying.
In preparation for this post I did some research on pricing for the Revlon Volumizer Hair Dryer Brush. Ulta & Target came in at the most expensive at 59.99. Next was Amazon and that was about 10.00-12.00 dollars cheaper and the cheapest was Walmart.com. So if your not in a super hurry, you can get it much cheaper and wait for it to ship.
I do not get any financial gain for this review. This is based on my experience over the last two weeks and it is a total win. I have not only done the kids hair but I have personally used it every day last week and I will not be going back to the regular hair dryer and roll brush. It shaved at least 10 minutes off of my normal routine and my hair looks really healthy and smooth after blow drying with the Volumizer.
I have always been addicted to paper. Make notes, journaling, making to-do lists ect., this is what makes me happy. I have a paper planner that goes everywhere with me. Even in this growing age of technology I cannot and probably will not ever go to a digital agenda.
I like to flip through it and notate events and meetings. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. So when I got an Apple Pencil at the beginning of the year I though I would mostly use it for hand-lettering and drawing images. Artsy things. I was super surprised that it was much more functional and incorporated into my daily really easily.
If your on the fence, then maybe by sharing my ideas with my Apple Pencil it may give you the ideas you have been looking for. The first thing I did when I unboxed my Apple Pencil was google the top applications that it was made for.
Out of the 10 or so hot apps I narrowed it down to 2. Adobe Sketch, which is a free application and is more than sufficent in providing a good platform to create lists, journal pages, and note pads. The second application that I quickly fell in love with was Procreate. It was 9.99, and it is my favorite, I use this app for all of my work now. I am sure it boils down to preference, but I like the usability of it and my work flows well through this app. I feel like it is user friendly and I didn’t have to ready a dictionary of information to figure it out.
So if having a plethora of ink color, pen and pencil types, markers and media at your finger tips is your jam, then this is the way to start documenting your to-do’s, to-don’ts, and much more.
3. I saved this to my cloud and when I go into start a new task or list, It will give you the option to open a new blank page or use existing template. Use your existing template.
4. You can save all of your notes or memos, arrange them in stacks, email them or send them to yourself in text message form. Print them out, or just look a them on your application.
These were just a few ideas of how an Apple Pencil is incorporated on the daily. This really just scratches the surface, I have many more plans and ideas. I will share as I grow and learn. If you have any amazing ideas I would love to see them. Inspiration comes in so many forms!
This post is for all my Mama’s out there that aren’t so crafty! Don’t have a Cricut, and don’t want one either. Hey, its not for everyone. I’m going to give y’all Mama’s a cheap, cute, and super easy opt out option for this Valentines Day. Everything listed was done completely by hand, no cheating with a cricut or anything that is not listed below. So here is the list and directions.
Step 1. Decide which bag you want to make. Scalloped edge does take the talent of being able to cut half circles. You can see I drew it out so all you have to do is trace it. The heart is super cute as well, less cutting.
Step 2. Once you get your bag cut, take your marker and trace your cut line so it stands out. If you choose the scalloped edge you have to trace the back of the bags edge so when it folds over the color is on the front.
Step 3. Tie your heart or fold your scalloped edge.
Step 4. Leave simple and elegant or add a Valentine sentiment. The foam sticky hearts work too, or just Valentine stickers.
BOOM! Handmade greatness for cheap and makes you look like you know what your doing. Total pro job.
I L-O-V-E these!! They turned out exactly the way I pictured them in my head. I wanted some girly, fun, wine glasses that I could be-gift to some of my lucky gal pals. I occasianally enjoy the glass of Merlot, Pinot, or Chardonnay. It’s no fun to partake alone so I made a set of each genre that was banging around in my head.
Of course I used my Cricut with Cricut Design Space. It is the bomb.com to design anything that your mind can think of! I use design space consistently to make original items. Aside from the hundreds of templates and pre-made designs you can up-load virtually anything you can dream up to your Design Space and then create it.
I use my own images for the majority of the time. Things I see on Pinterest or things that I view while out and about.
Hopefully I can give you some inspiration to create your vision. If you haven’t checked out Design Space DO IT! It will change your D-I-Y game.
Okay people, I am about to blow your mind! This 5X6 mini scrapbook was created for less than a few bucks. Yes! Super personal and very easy to replicate. Whether you are looking for a handmade gift or just trying to make cute photo books from your vacation, (yes, I am still working on Disney from last summer)this is the perfect little project that is useful!
Whatever theme you are working on, you can embellish to your liking. I needed some more Disney space for our photos so I used this theme to demonstrate DIY Mini-Scrapbook’s!
The photo’s above show the middle cover already on and the front of the book will be the bottom color, the edges will show for this finished album. The above example shows what 2-cuts you need to cover the front and back of the book.
3. Once the front and back of the album are covered appropriately, then you can just use regular, thick card-stock for filler pages. Use your original hole-punch template to mark all of your filler pages. I used approximately 12 pages and I measured them the exact same size as the front and back covers.
Lastly, select your binding. I chose rings because some of my embellishments will be very thick so I wanted a lot of room to add things to my pages. Using rings will allow for a lot of room and a super thick photo collage.
Embellish, design, create and scrapbook your photos onto the blank pages! Finish out your cover and make a statement.
Easy Peasy DIY that makes you look like a pro!
Ladies, if your a regular at the Nail Salon you know how expensive it can be to upkeep Gel Nails on a weekly basis. Aside from the expense, finding an extra hour in my week every week can be quite the challenge.
A few years ago I purchased a Melody Susie LED gel nail lamp for 27.00$ and it transformed my nail game! It did take a small investment up front but after the first few times I did my nails it totally paid for itself and now that I have been using it for so long it has been 100x worth the investment. Plus I always get compliments on my nails and nail color.
Obviously you need the LED light which was posted above. Secondly you need a foundation and Top coat. I buy the Gelish brand off of Amazon and together they are 19.00$. They last forever. I have only bought the set twice and I have done my nails 50+ times maybe more, so it is safe to say that they go a long way. My nails are always did!
Colors, colors, all the colors!!! Gel polish is the way to go. It makes your nails stronger and protects them from breakage. It also gives your nail a professional finish which I love. You do not have to be a perfect nail painter because the top coat melts it all together into a smooth shiny surface. Unless you use a matte top coat and you have a beautiful matte finish.
I have used Gelish gel color for the last few years but recently I have fell in love with and Ulta brand called Red Carpet. They run around 9.00$ each but again, they last a long time. They come in small bottles but they do not seem to get old or go bad. I still can use the very first nail color that I purchased 3 years ago.
Basic Acetone will be needed as well because once the color has been set with the LED then you will wipe your nails with acetone and bam you are ready to go!
When you are tired of the color or they start to peel, all you do is peel the color off. It typically will come off in one piece and there is no damage to the nail underneath. They sell chemicals that will take it off but I have never had any issues with peeling the color off organically. Depending on if I have cleaned with chemicals, because that seems to weaken the polish sometimes, my nails will last a week or longer. I re-do them immediately when I peel the old color off.
Happy Nail Painting!
