What do you want to see?

I have been asked by a couple people if I am going to blog again? So weird but apparently people read it!

What would you like to see? I figure if you are spending time here, you should have some input! 

Here are some choices:
Trixiegirl items
Pictures of my randomness

Let me know!

Crafty little elf update

I thought I'd make it easy for you to look right here and see all of your new awesome options of headbands!  You ready?

These little shabby rosettes are a change-up, but a refreshing change!  They are thin and lay pretty close and flat to the head.  I'm pretty in love.

Ok, I'm in love with these too.  Eyelet flower headbands are so summery and simple.

These are some one-of-a kind bands.  All have vintage lace and shabby flowers.  Some have vintage buttons and some have new.  But they are all made to make you feel special when you put one on.

Do you have a new favorite headband?  Who would you buy one for?

Thursday favorites and an explaination

Before the favorites, here is an excuse explanation of why I haven't been blogging.

I didn't feel like it.

Now, onto fun things!

I decided to do a little Thursday favorites post cause we know I love em! I love seeing people's favorite things.  Hence my lipstick collection. :)  At least I'm not on the streets....

Candy Crush.  I don't even know where my time has gone.  Oh yes I do.  To Candy Crush.  Maybe someday I will beat level 65.  Probably not though.  Am I a gamer now?

My favorite self-tanner, St. Tropez. It's a little pricey, but I'm willing to pay it.  And it lasts forever.  Also get the mit and you will never see tan palms! I just saw this deal on tv.  It's pretty amazing. 

I just looked online for this candle to show you and apparently it's a pretty good find!  I found the first one at Marshalls and the next 3 at TJ Maxx.  I just liked the container, but they smell soooo good.  And they are 4.99.  Retails for $28.

What are you loving lately?  Share with the class!

P.S.  Check out Mabelline Color Sensational Lipcolors.  So I've heard.  I heard that Peachy Scene and Pink and Proper are amazing colors....

DIY scrabble picture frame

I posted a pic of me and E on Instagram (I'm Trixiegirlaccessories on Instagram).  It was just of us in the car when we were doing some birthday shopping for the hubs.  I had a friend, Corie, say we should frame it and give it to him.  Well duh!  Thanks Cor.  Because I did!

I printed the pic (well Walgreens did) and picked up a frame at Target.

But because I can't leave things alone,  I thought of this!  I picked out the phrase "we love u" from a Scrabble game that I got at a garage sale in the summer.  I put some hot glue on the back of each letter to glue it to the "tile holder?"  I don't buy Scrabble to play.  I buy Scrabble to craft.

Then I sat the picture up as it would normally stand.  I put a strip of hot glue along the base of the scrabble stand where it met the frame.  Once it dried, I did another strip just to reinforce the glue.

And Voila.  You can do this for anyone!  What a great present.  I think it would make a cute new home present with a picture of someone's new house!
Just look for scrabble games at Goodwill, garage sales or if you don't like either, then you can just borrow a Scrabble game from a neighbor....;)

Easy scarf DIY

Are you a scarf person? I am, but don't love spending $$$ on them.  I saw this scarf at the Dollar Tree today. I didn't like that is was so thin. So I bought two to bulk it up. Of each kind...:)

Tie the ends together to make one long scarf. *actual size is hula hoopish

Wrap it around 3 times. Pin it underneath with a couple of safely pins to hold to in place. That's my favorite scarf trick. I can't stand when you have to wrestle with your scarf all day! Ain't nobody got time for that!
Here's your soon-to- be $2 scarf!

Have a good Sunday!

Let's get crackin!

Hope you had a great weekend! It was an awesomely warm weekend (well, Saturday was). Here is a little photo recap of our weekend.

This was a fun idea until I needed to take my make-up off...


made for windows...
Not for mouths...

Here we are getting ready for a little egg cracking. It's a Armenian tradition that I've been doing my whole life.  Here is more info on it. I look like I'm missing an upper tooth. I'm not. And have a crazy curl. Sorry bout that.

My violent 5 year-old did this.

If you can't be near family, have pieces of them with you. 100 year-old glasses NEED mimosas in them. And china deserves to be used.

By the end of the day we looked like this. This is considered a weak moment.

How was your weekend?

April showers bring Trixiegirl rainbows

You didn't know I had rhymes in me did ya? It's kinda personal.  :)

Are you sick of snow yet?  Please don't tell me if you are in SoCal and have a season pass to Disneyland because that's just unfair.  So, until they build a Disney World branch in MN, let's just post pics of rainbows and snow melting.  I like to think of it as fake-positive thinking.  You are dealing with the Class Optimist of '95 you know....

So, get really close to the screen as you scroll down and breath in the rainbow....

All of these fun items and more rainbow goodness can of course be found at Trixiegirl!

Shop Update

Well look who's been a hum-ho blogger lately.  This girl. 

I'll blame it on spring break...a week ago.  I'll try better this week.   

I had a fun week last week with products.   I'll give you a little run-down here to catch you up.

Here are some little initial stamped earrings.  I was sitting and staring at my desk wondering one of those "woe is me" thoughts.  Then because my desk was a mess I realized I had pretty ideas right in front of me.


Please welcome these little cute bobby pins to this "lacey goodness" family!

A pretty cuff idea for a friend!


I had a friend ask about workout headbands.  I hope you like these!  I'll sport some this week and let you know what the people say.  They might be distracted by my pipes though....

What is your new favorite?
