5.) Try something you saw on Pinterest and tell us if it was a win or a fail!

The Dum Dum topiary craft I’ve seen pinned and redone a million ways on Pinterest has been calling my name for a long time and with Valentine’s Day around the corner this was the perfect chance to attempt it. I even managed to include the “ipod shuffle” prompt within the same video so…color me talented. I will say, however, this seemingly fool proof craft did not turn out quite as I expected. In fact, it turned out BETTER. Take a look:

And don’t miss Naila Moon’s twist on the New Year’s resolution. I love the goals she’s set up for herself!:

Wow, that took an unexpected turn….for, mmmmmm…the better! Some people would have headed to the store for three more bags of Dum Dums, but let’s be honest. Who would be the real Dum Dum then?!

I hope to see more of her in the rest of your vlogs. :) She’d be a great sidekick.

I seriously laughed out loud for a minute over the end result of your topiary. You’re hilarious!

My New Years resolution is to carve out more time to watch your videos… Helerious!

Naila Moon January 8, 2014 at 10:49 pm

As it seems I might have jumped the gun on the New Years resolution thing, I think I am good this week.
I did do a video on making more ‘art’ for my white walls if you want to check that out.
This stupid New Year cold has had me down for days. ugh!

I did get around to say hey to everyone though. See ya later and thanks for the spotlight. :)
