Disney Cars 2 at Walmart!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you a Cars fan?
We are!
(I actually prefer Cars to most of the Disney Princess shows)
My almost 6 year old boy does too...obviously.
Because he will be 6 in 2 weeks, I've been online checking out
things I could get him for his birthday.
Walmart has a whole line of Disney Cars fun!
I absolutely love these little die cast cars!
It's hard to find well made metal cars these days...but these ones are
adorable and they will last forever!
How fun would playtime be with this entire Cars 2 cast?

I bought some die cast cars for my oldest when he was 1 or so...
he's 12 now, and they are in perfect condition...not even scratched or chipped paint!
I love giving my kids things that still require their imagination.
I love listening to my kids play with their much creativity and fun!
And because my little trooper doesn't have his own bed...
He's been sleeping in a hammock mounted to my daughters bed frame...
Maybe it's time to upgrade to a twin bed!
I love this comforter and sheet set! You just have to love Mater!
Bedding is 100% soft polyester and low maintenance...
(meaning easy to clean in case of accidents)
There are tons of great bedroom decor like lamps, storage options, chairs/couches and more!
And I know my son would absolutely love this
Each charge gives it an hour of ride time!
Really, how many kids do you know that wouldn't love that?
Check out the Disney Cars line at your Walmart...or at!

Pixel Hama Bead 8-Bit Bows!

 Pixel Perler Bead Bows!
Make adorable pixelated bow shoe clips!
After all, Bowties are, and forever will be, Cool!
 Or a fabulous geeky chic hair clip!
Easy and fun!
Using Perler, melty or hama beads!
  We absolutely love perler beads.
But we've ended up with a jumble of mixed colors in big bags.
And not a black one to be found!
 Nothing against these big bulk packages...but they make
searching take half the time of the making process!
 But...I got some packages of specific colored beads sent to me from Wholeport!
Now I have some metallics, mint, skin tones and black!
No searching or gathering!
About $2.59 per package of 500...great for getting the specific colors you need!
They have about 60 different colors.
 Here's how I do a pattern.
For this one I used the hexagon shaped board.
 Just trace the board on some scrap this.
 Draw the basic shape you want.
(or print something off the computer)
 Place it back on top and follow those guidelines.
 Leaving some room for creativity,
but having an outline is very helpful!
 Outline the bow in black.
This will give it the true 8-bit feel.
 Fill in with color.
I did an ombre bow...with a little highlight!
Place parchment paper over the top and iron gently.
Carefully turn the entire thing over, cover with parchment and iron the other side.
The edges of the perler beads will melt and stick together.
 Repeat for a perfect pair of bows!
 For the hair clip I used the square peg board.
 Filled in the same with a varying color scheme for depth!
 Now I did 2 with shoe clips and the other a hair clip.
I did not end up using the alligator clip though...
 Instead I used a french clip.
I used E6000 to glue it on the backside...but because of the arch of the clip,
I wrapped it with thread to keep it's shape while the glue dried.
(then easily cut the thread off)
 I used the same glue for the shoe clips.
 Clipped on the buckle strap of these mary-janes for the perfect accessory!
 Super cute!
Great geeky accessory for cheap!
