How long will the nail polish on the keys last?
One of my first blog posts and the most popular to date- color code your keys with nail polish! Lol, well I really do not have an answer! When I did these keys, I moved a few months later- so the answer is they lasted me about 5 months. Now, I only have one key and my car key, so I do not use this simple trick anymore! However, it only takes a couple minutes, so if it cracks- redo them! I used my outtake shot for the keys because chubby little baby hands are the cutest!
What do you do with all your DIYS when you are done with them?
I would say about 85% of the DIYS I do on A Bubbly Life are for a party I (or a friend) are having or for use in my home or a gift to someone (including me freelance work). The other 15% I give away to Goodwill. You SO could tell what Goodwill I live next to if you happen to live in Arizona and read my blog.
Will you sell me this or that diy?
I get this question most often regarding my pink ruffled tablecloth. As much as I would love to give it to a reader- I love pink and I think I may regret getting rid of it. However, ANYTIME someone emails me, I will help and encourage you to create your own and give any advice if it is necessary.
Some of the thrift finds, I love so much I cannot sell- like this frame (2nd most popular request) used in my daughter’s bedroom and for her first birthday party. I feel terrible saying no (how would I send that sucker in mail?) but since it is part of my daughter’s decor, I cannot part with it!
However- you never know- so just ask! My glitter cake set and some ballerina bubble jars are in readers hands. Also the answer is NO, I wont sell it to you, but I will send it as a gift along with some other little diy goodies 😉
Shameless self promotion- you can purchase a kit over on Darby Smart for my agate gemstone magnets and make it yourself at home easily!
How do you pronounce your daughter’s name, Kalia?
I love this question because I L-O-V-E my daughter’s name. The pronunciation is KAH LEE AH. It is a Hawaiian name, we had her when we lived in Hawaii and did not choose her name until the hospital forced me too before I left with her after giving birth. We had two names- Isla & Kalia. KAH- LEE- AH- it was!
5) I want to start a blog, any advice?
I still feel brand new… but my best advice is simply Just do it. Start your blog now and all the pieces will come together. Any doubts or fears you have- ignore them and just dive right in! I am considering adding some blog posts with some tips I have picked up along the way! (I might have to start this column asap if the remodel delay prevents me from accessing my craft room!)
I am hoping to be back next week with more DIYs. I just ordered flamingo paper for a diy for the baby’s nursery and cannot wait for it to arrive!! (Yes, she is 6.5 months old and the nursery is not done, stop judging me 😉
