By |May 21st, 2015|

We recently got to use products from DohVinci. This product combines playdoh with 3d printing. When it dries, you have a masterpiece. There are so many different bases you can use to create on such as wood, plastic, ceramic but we decided to use a canvas. It worked perfectly! The stylist resembles a glue […]

Swordfish Steak

By |May 17th, 2015|


Ever tried Swordfish?
146 Calories
55% of the daily recommended amount of protein
It is also loaded with potassium and selenium which helps with energy and electrolytes. This meal may look light but it packs a big punch of flavor and fulfilling. With a couple of seasonings and herbs, I created a marinade and grilled the swordfish […]

All you need is […]

Summer Lemon Wood Craft

By |April 28th, 2015|

When I create something, I like to think outside the box or in this case, outside the fruit. Does a lemon have to be all yellow?

I decided that a lemon doesn’t have to be all yellow. I can make it what I want and to match my yellow and pink porch decor.
I found everything […]

Denim Dreams{DIY Dream Catcher}

By |March 27th, 2015|

Follow your heart,
Capture your dreams,

I don’t like to throw out items that I think I can upcycle. So, when a pair of jeans went out of commission, I knew I could use the denim. I picked up a round wire planter for just a few bucks at Home Depot. Then, […]

What would you do with an extra $100?

By |March 11th, 2015|

With an extra $100?
How awesome that you ask your CSI Girl!

I admit it I like to coupon {verb} and save money!

I spend some time on Sunday going through the paper and cutting them out. I also like to buy in bulk and keep food storage. It helps when bigger purchases come up like razors […]

When I passed this cute sign at Michael’s, I couldn’t resist buying it.
