 Turquoise Patina Rub N Buff Sandals Upcycle! Upcycle some old sandals with turquoise patina Rub n Buff in just a few minutes. Have you been going through your closets, cupboards and rooms in an effort to organize and consolidate? I bet you have a few pair of shoes that could use an update. If you like the style, consider a color change! I bought these darling sandals on Ebay. They looked bright blue and very clean. Here's the picture that accompanied the listing: I was surprised when they arrived that they were just very blue shoes. Like Pantone's blue color of the year classic blue. I contacted the seller and they beat around the issue blaming different monitors, etc. Anyway, they were not the turquoise color I wanted.

Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Ink Markers Coloring Tutorial

Tombow ABT Pro Alcohol Ink Markers Coloring Tutorial  Tombow recently released the ABT PROs, a line of alcohol ink markers and they are fantastic! I'm super excited to be on the Tombow Design Team for 2020 and they sent me these markers. Coloring line drawn images has been my favorite things since 2008. When I discovered alcohol ink markers, it was a game changer!  So in 2011 or so, I splurged big time and bought some alcohol ink markers off ebay for like $400. It was a pretty good size set, maybe 75 colors or so. It was a steal, they are typically $6-8 each...I was super lucky to get them so inexpensively. I used them for quite a few years, bought refills, etc. However, I started using them less and then got a little desperate for money and sold them. It made me sad that I didn't have good markers and I stopped card making for a couple years. Now that Tombow has released the ABT Pro Alcohol Ink Markers , I'm back at card-making and coloring!

10 Tips for Disney World Florida Vacation

 10 Tips for Disney World Florida Vacation! Disney World is the most amazing vacation! Are you planning a trip to Disney World in Florida? We loved our Disney World vacation in 2013, so it's been a while. My kids were 11, 9 and 5 years old. They were amazing travelers. We stayed offsite and drove to each park each day. Even though we haven't been to Disney World for 6 years, I've got 10 tips for your trip to Disney that are as timeless as Star Wars. Tip #1 for Disney World:  At least get a 4-day Park Hopper pass , more if you want. Don't hop around from park to park in the same day, it will waste too much time. Instead, attend each of the parks, 1 per day. We hit it hard and went 4 days in a row. We woke up early so we could get to the gates 30 minutes before opening and we stayed as late as possible and left with the crowd when it closed for the night. I heard that Magic Kingdom is typically busiest, so not to go there on a Monday. Instead we started off o
