After so reconsideration I think I am going to be holding onto this blog for a bit longer maybe forever ;)
I do have plans to keep the site up and to set up a shop and a blog is a great way to keep people up to date on whats new and happening.
Keep watching and new posts will pop up when you least expect it, at least for now, but come May 23rd expect big things and regular posts!
Everyone have an amazing Easter, don't eat too much Easter bunny ;)
So I have spent the last few months trying out all the different blog services and have made my final decision.
Wordpress wins... hands down!
As much as I like my Vistaprint blog and it is easy to use I am just not getting the response here that I need. Not sure why but I pick up a ton of spam comments here. Don't worry though the website will stay up just not the blog ;)
If you are interested in what I am up to check me out over at WP ... http://lifeinadifferentdirection.
A friend gave me this easy way to make marble look Easter eggs, I would using suggest gloves and tongs as you are working with straight dye not diluted.
First get regular shave cream not gel. You want to use containers that you don't mind if they get stained and spray a good amount of cream in.
Next with your dyes simply dot the cream. Then with a toothpick swirl. Don't mix, just swirl together otherwise you will just get a nicely colored egg not marbled.
I used one pan and started with a teal green that I created by mixing colors together, blue and green.
I am a Newberry and my
paternal Grandmother was an O'Hare. I am the descendant of a long and
proud line of Irishmen and woman.
The name 'Newberry' is
actually Norman from Le Newbourg in Central Normandy, anglicized to de
Newburgh, meaning new town. The head of the family was Roger
, a powerful noble, he was a part of the Norman
Conquest in 1066 with William the Conquer, his second cousin. They
battled by his side at the Battle of Hastings.
My mom was the original 'Martha Stewart
', before we knew what that was. We had dinner every night at 5:00 pm, deserts from scratch, her house was immaculate, her gardens were the envy of the neighborhood, she canned, and preserved everything it was possible to, made homemade breads, and candies, she sewed, darned, tatted, knitted, crocheted, embroidered, she had her own tool box, decorated for every holiday (and there was always a party too), dressed like a proper mid-century southern lady should, hat, gloves, and girdle always.
