Vintage Wanna Bee In the HOUSE!

Have you guys met Nichelle?
She is one of those girls that you are instantly drawn to.
One of those girls you want to be your BFF.
One of those girls you can imagine sitting down with
and eating an entire tub of icecream as you vent about a bad day,
and you know,
without a doubt,
that she will find some way to make you feel better.

She once referred to me as spicy,
and it made me smile.

Well, today we get to know Nichelle a bit better.
Here she is.

Hello there!
 I'm soooooo thrilled to be here on Ash-wee's blog!
I pretty much heart her.
I'm Nichelle from Vintage Wanna Bee!
This is me...
{yes, that's my natural hair color}obsessed with DISNEY PRINCESSES,
I'm a little QUIRKY,
sometimes I'm EMOTIONAL,
& I think a CRAFTY life, is an awesome life.
I love sharing WHO I AM, what I BELIEVE, and
sometimes LIFE IS CRAZY, but there are always WARM FUZZIES to find,
because of awesome FAMILY and FRIENDS!
Let's get on to the craft-y-ness...
I'm here to do a tutorial for you! Wahooo!
Get ready to, "Pimp Your Shoes"!!!
{{Vintage Wanna Bee style}}
Clearance shoes! Or some old ones you want to change!
Fabric, Glue and Embellishments.
Cut the fabric into long strips about 1.5 inches wide...
Start making your rosettes...
add them to your shoes... and maybe some pretty little extras too!
Don't you think my new shoes go GREAT with my Little Miss Momma Mustache Necklace?!?!
I think so...
Well, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
Thanks Ashley for letting me come by!
I hope you come by my blog or etsy shop!
I'd love to become bloggy BFF's!!!
Mucho Love

a little bit Awkward, a little bit Awesome {through my childhood years}

a little bit Awkward, a little bit Awesome
Through My Childhood

A little while back, I was inspired by my bud, Sydney of the Daybook, to write this post about the awkward and awesome of everyday life.

And today, I want to do it again.
But with a twist this time.

February is my birthday month.
And the past few years, February has been a time of reflection.
Of feeling like I wish everything would just slow down for a minute,
{while also feeling like some things would speed up}.

I used to teach the 15 and 16 year old girls at Church.
And I always gave myself a pat on the back because
"it wasn't that long ago that I was sitting in their shoes".

But you know what?
It was that long ago.
And this year it hit me.
I am getting old.

Like sore knees and bad back kinda old.
Like get a headache from loud music kinda old.
Like hate scary movies and no patience for Nickelodeon kinda old.

And the older I began to feel,
the more motivated I became to dig into my "memory box",
pull out some old pictures,
and remember the days of old.

And those days were full of a whole lotta awkward
and a whole lotta awesome.

Let's start with the awkward,
because that's more entertaining.

Sucking my thumb until I was 11 {maybe even 12}--awkward.

The infamous creepy Santa pic--every kid has one.
Not to mention that I look I just woke up and I'm not entirely sure whats up with my hair line.

This ones awkward for my momma. Can you guess why?
Yep, it's the hair--gotta love the 80's.

Suspenders, missing teeth, and a slicked back pony tail--the picture really speaks for itself.

For clarification, this is my school "hippy day" outfit.
But really? Couldn't I have found a cuter version of a hippy?

Have you ever seen a picture of the world's largest front teeth?
Well, now you have.

Awkward of the highest proportions.
My version of the Kelly Kapowski {saved by the bell} hair wave--fail.

The awkward preteen years.
You know the ones.
Where you forget how smile like a normal person for a few years.
And you are forced to wear your retainer in public.
And you used lingo like "sike" and "not".

And you wear outfits that resemble no sense of real style.
Oh, and the claw bangs that stayed in place courtesy of RAVE hair spray,
and somehow always left me with a shiny hairspray forehead.

My obsession with Brad Pitt.
So obsessed, in fact, that my aunt took me to get a picture of myself superimposed next to him {hangs head in shame}.

I think we can probably end the awkward embarrassing on that note.

And now,
onto the Awesome.

A Momma who has been your best friend from day one.

Grandpa snuggles and chubby cheeks.

Looking at your own baby pictures
and seeing the face of Baby W.

That's Baby W dressed up as a girl,
not really,
but it could be.

Baby bedhead and toothy grins.

Memorable family vacations.

Being a Trojan since the beginning!
Fight On!

What awkward and awesome do you remember about your childhood?

BTW: In order to get these pictures onto my computer I DIDN'T scan them. I just took a picture of the picture.
Try it, its super easy.

And then you can share your own awkward and awesome childhood moments with us!

The author of the Mel {V} blog
and the designer of the Mel {V} Designs Camer Strap Covers

I made this strap cover for Little Miss Momma.

Today I am here to show you this fun Valentines Day project that I whipped up.  My brain was so fried trying to come up something great to make to impress Ashley and her readers (haha), so I checked around some awesome blogs and found this tutorial by Lisa Leonard...
andhere is my version of her project!

It's pretty easy and it took me less than 5 minutes to make!  

All you need is some paint, glitter, a paint brush of course, and a canvas. 

Pour some paint on your canvas 

and spread with the brush, you can leave some texture to make it more rustic chic 

then I made a heart template and cut it out and lay it on top of the wet paint 

and pour glitter on the wet paint before it dries 

and ta da! There it is... 
I kinda over did it with the glitter didn't I? haha ...oh well! 

To see the original tutorial Here it is! 

Thank you Ashley for having me was a blast ;) 

Ohhhh and Ashley will be guest blogging over at my place today so go check her out!
