Phone grips... which we like and why.

Yes.... when I first was given one for a gift at the holidays in 2016 - I thought -"Another phone accessory I'd use for a month then toss out."  Nope,  I love it, but I was tired of the design.
So I used my crafty skills to made new designs so I could change it up.
Also while traveling without a mount, I found that with the grip reversed (design side in your palm, instead of to the back of your hand) between your fingers you can easily use your maps. It was less distracting than looking down to the cup holder where my phone was in the rental car, so with hands on the wheel at 10 & 2, I could also hold the phone and see the map.

What my family has helped me test and why we like what we do.

PopSocket - originals that are branded "Boulder Colorado"  are often knocked off, unfortunately. The knock offs are not made with the high quality materials, don't pop up as high and usually have one time use adhesive.
I still use this grip, I like the pop and I don't fiddle with it. It fits my hand well.

Nuckees are new to the game.
They have an elastic string from the base (that has a repositionable gel adhesive) to the cap top.
My daughter prefers this grip, she like the elastic, and doesn't "fiddle" with it like she did with the PopSocket.

My changeing window...

Summer is here so the window gets a new look!
This window actually hangs on the wall in the living room. But photos of it in the house never do it justice. It is SOOO much better in person. the glass in photos glares.

Chalk Couture Inks

This weekend we played in the Ink! 

Chalk Couture ink project. This little shirt taught me... Some colors are permanent without heat set, at least on this material :0 The green leaves went thru the wash after the shirt was designed the first time, but we wanted to change the wording color. So in the wash it went for a do-over. Most of the ink except the green did wash out, but it was a good learning experience. Ink is permanent on fabric, plan accordingly. If you want it to wash out it... might, but then again it may not.

We are having FUN with these fun transfers!
Interested in a Make N' Sip fun play date?
Lets Talk!

Farm House Chalk Couture Transfer

This is a large transfer but you don't have to use everything, just mask off what you don't want chalked. Here is a sign I made. The lower portion can be written on with chalk markers and wiped off so every week when you have different specials it still works.

The April Blizzard of 2018

 I was planning on being at the KSID expo to show & sell. But the weather had other ideas. The roads were closed from Friday morning until saturday night, and we didn't even have a maintainer open our road until late Saturday so Sunday was the first we could get to town.
So I thought I's post here a few things I would have taken, if I could have.
I have several variations of shingles.
