As time goes by I am slowly building the look and feel of my craft room. It has a ways to go but in the end it will be an amazing room. I painted this Thought Cloud with the words "Think" in them to use as inspiration when I am in the craft room.
Ok, I found this at Barnes and Noble and drooled all the way to the counter to pay for it. I added some pink Rhinestones to the front cover, just to fabutize it even more. Do you want to know a secret?....I havent even used it! It's just too dam cute- I'm waiting for the perfect theme to use it for. Anyone have some ideas? I do that a lot with notebooks, I purchase them because they look SO great and never want to write in them and ruin them- weird I know.
I used a small wooden trinket box (found at most local craft stores for $1) and a small wooden heart (also found in the same section) First I painted the top of the box pink. You could use any color you prefer. Then I used Mod Podge and sprinkled glitter on my desired areas, in this case the sides of the box top and the heart itself. Although it appears to have dried within an hour, let it set overnight.
Even if I don't sell anything through Sellz Cute Things- I am proud that I am being PROactive in my life and atleast taking risks- I started my own business- on my own- everything is self taught- even through all the obstacles that have been and will continue to be thrown at me- I am that Latina that inspires and leads and breaks barriers for all future Spanish girls.....I am "At-Risk" to SUCCEED Biiiiiii!ches!
Sellz Cute Things came about through a difficult birth. I am now at my 24yrs of living beginning to reflect on everything I am, was, will be and am expected to be and continue being. It's a story I hope to write about one day and use as an inspiration for future generations of women. Born Puerto Rican and living in NYC, its like I was stamped on my behind with the words "At-Risk". When I first heard this term I was disgusted- why are we automatically tagged disadvantaged? You know what I hear when I come across "At-Risk"...... AT RISK TO SUCCEED! (and this goes to ALL the male/female gay/straight, whatever country you're from youth population)
And thats the reason why I work with afterschool programs working primarily with minority youth, and why I will become a teacher one day. I want to continue to make a difference in young peoples lives and will always be a leader.
Too many folks are just letting life pass them by, why? Be Pro-Active and take risks. You have nothing to lose, only knowledge and experience to gain....I PROMISE a hunger for success will come about.
