This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I have had 6 babies, and yet, their first smiles and laughs never get old. It seems like they always giggle and coo at the oddest things when they first start out: the TV, a funny noise, or even the family pet.
Our new little bundle, Manasseh, has started laughing up a storm at the mirror in his baby swing. He thinks it's so comical, and we end up laughing because of it. His first laugh was such a proud moment for us!
|Baby Manasseh, before his first smile...|

I started seeing pictures of "string" trees on social media, and I fell in love with the idea. I couldn't find any directions for these trees, so I guessed on a technique that worked out very well! To make the trees even more charming, I used Krylon's Glitter Blast paints to add shimmer and shine.
To make the trees, you will need the following supplies:
- Light-weight natural twine or yarn
- Plain white glue
- White printer paper
- Waxed paper
- Krylon Glitter Blast in your choice of colors
Next, you will take the twine and, using two fingers, squeeze the excess glue off loosely before wrapping it around the paper cone. You will want it to cross over itself in a crazy pattern in various places on the cone.
When you feel like you have enough twine wound to get the look you want, set the cone aside to dry overnight.
After at least 12 hours have passed, and the glue is completely dry, you can remove the paper cone. Since it will stick to the twine, you can use a pencil to push through the spaces in the twine to separate the paper. Pull the paper out the bottom, leaving just the twine behind.
Now, you can paint! Follow the directions on the Krylon Glitter Blast very carefully. It's important to shake it as directed to avoid globs of glitter and keep an even application. Overall, this is very easy to apply; you can choose to add more glitter to create an all-over metallic look, or just a little to create "dusting" of glitter with the original color of the twine showing through.
I decided to paint a few pine cones, as well.
Then, after everything was dry. I set up my trees, pine cones, and a few adorable owls from my local gift shop.
*As a Krylon blogger ambassador, I was compensated and given product to facilitate the project. As a fan of Krylon, however, I have been using their products uncompensated for years!
Coffee has always been an important part of my life, so much so that I can't wait to have my first cup each morning. I expect my coffee to be at the perfect temp and with the right flavor, but doing so with such a crazy routine can be difficult. I had the chance to try the TASSIMO T55 brewer this past week, and I have simply not tasted coffee more like a coffee house -- with no hassle and less expense!
First, the machine is simple in design. Put water in the back, turn the machine on, and insert the T DISCS for the drink you desire.
I tried chai latte, flavored coffees, and cocoas in the TASSIMO T-55. All came out delicious and hot. You can get more info on the TASSIMO at the official website.
Wanna Save? For Cyber Monday, TASSIMO has set up a special offer, valid only on 12/2. Use code TACYMON3 and save 20% off T DISCS, and also 20% off Brewers with 2 Free Packages of T DISCS.
