Super Easy Valentine's Decoration...Large Heart

I have been on an easy craft kick!  I have done this one two different ways, I am not really happy with this version and I will tell you why...

I took my large silicone heart shaped pan and added water, it is flimsy so put a pan under it.  

Add food coloring...
I was trying to make it marbly, it looks neat doesn't it?  
I think because of the high winds yesterday and because I didn't add the food coloring when the pan was in it's freezing place the colors muddled and turned out like this...

I am still happy with it but was inspired to make another one, it will be ready tomorrow, it is sitting outside right now. :)  I will share when it is done.  I added glitter and only one color.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I think it is a fun, subtle decoration.  I am planning on leaving the new one I make on my parent's porch Wednesday night and a little gift, granted they won't be able to keep it but it will be a cute I Love You in the morning.

Disney on a Dime with My Milwaukee Mommy and Mickie of Glass Slipper Concierge

So, I am a Disney fanatic!  I love everything Disney.  Being a stay at home mom of four, it's been difficult to make ends meet.  However, we still find the money to do Disney every year.  I know that's a little much for some people, but I have said many times that I could seriously live there...and I would if I could!  We justify a trip every year by all the money I save doing what I love...couponing!

I have a ton of friends ask me how we do Disney every year.  Simple answer...we live frugally the rest of the year to be able to enjoy it once a year.  Our last trip was taken in December of 2012.  I am a control freak, but decided I wanted to let someone else take over the planning.  So, I heard from Mickie through our facebook page and figured I would go ahead and message her.  She was amazing and made sure that every aspect of my trip was well planned and perfect for my entire family.  From planning, to during, to after.  She took care of EVERYTHING!

We are working with Mickie Kloskowski of Glass Slipper Concierge to bring something unique to our readers.  We would like to have a trip to Disney in which our readers could go as well and get one of the best prices available...as long as you are able to go on at least one of the same dates we will be there.  They have a policy...the more rooms you book, the better package you can get with a group of ten or more rooms booked.  We are thinking of going at the end of February 2014.

We are looking to gauge interest, so please respond to this survey so we can know when to plan an informational meeting and start planning!

YES!!! $25 Restaurant.com Gift Certificates for $4!



Through tomorrow you can get $25 Restaurant Gift Certificates for $4! We have used these a few times (Transfer Pizza is our favorite place to get these certificates, they sell out fast though.)  You may want to check out restaurants you have never been to or look for a favorite.  I think we will be trying Milwaukee Sail Loft and Fernando's Mexican Restaurant and Cantina.  

When you get a Restaurant.com certificate you just tell the server and give them the certificate.  Usually when it is a $25 value you will need to have a bill minimum of about $35.  There might be other restrictions like adult beverages.  These are a great way to save when you want to go out!
