Quater Yard Sale Haul .25 cents each vid, cheap and eco art and craft supplies,

This is a toy video fro the real prince club.
Cheap and Eco friendly art and craft supplies By askazombiehousewife If you are a broke artist or just cheap one there ways you can save money on art supplies. 1.Raid your recycling bin or ask friends for their discarded cardboard. You can turn cardboard into canvasses. Discarded plastic can be turned into sculpture. This is not only cheap its green. 2.Use quality student non toxic paints. Student paints for children do not have low quality and are usually more eco friendly than professional paints. 3. Use discarded wood as canvas but make sure its not treated with harsh chemicals first. 4. Make friends with thrift stores. Reusing things is greener than buying new supplies. Thrift stores can be like treasure hunts. We found yarn, cloth, picture frames and more. 5. Old clothes with tears in it that our too bad for the thrift store might be useful as sewing material. You Have a giant back of material right in your own home. 6. Yard sales can be treasure hunts but you have to have cash on hand. _-_-___----- My art

DIY craft Barbie lightsaber, 2 minute craft

Star was Barbie craft video, fun craft.

Rediscovering Enya
I remember I used to listen to Enya often long before I was artist, wife and mother.
Enya.  She I started  to listen again with my family.   Enya has always been magical and poetic to me but now I find her music inspirational.
I always thought they were synthesized songs but I am finding they are grand orchestral. 
My favorites are echo in the rain, its in the rain, the humming, only time.

Easy DIY Barbie Craft Starbursts miniature box, Stop Blaiming Millennials, Studio C Candyland, review, why I sell Tiny art

Stop Blaming millennials aka generation y for Business Failings
I read an article that blamed millennial for business failures. Generation y was renamed millennials because it didn't seem like any thought was but
I am tail end gen ex born on the early 70s
People don't buy as many napkins as much because cloth is elegant and reusable.
golf courses are expensive and its cheaper to buy a 300 dollar game console and golf a game.
I go to brick and mortar stores and they often don't have what I need at any price so I end up having to buy online.
Thrift stores are eco friendly.
I buy online and a lot of millennials do for the same reasons.
If shoppers walk or bike to work, have a disability, have one car they can't get to  mall or restaurant.  Not all communities, have public transit.  Those people no longer have to beg for
Friends. They shop online and order takeout. They can make food at home.
They are paying off student loan debt. They also can't buy things and eat out if they are not making a living wage. They are not buying avocado toast more than the rest of the population.
A lot of people are part time minimalists and more careful about what they buy.
  but spending what you don't have caused the economic problem so stop blaming people if they can't buy everything and are not buying what they can't. Walmart is offering pick up and I shop that and their new eco polices.

Why I make Tiny Art.
By abundancelovetrip
I sell my art prints via Zazzle.  I could never get in the minimalist  movement because I need art on the walls. Art to me is what makes  homes have personality especially if you have an apartment or manufactured home.  Art can be in a mansion, a shack, a condo, a trailer, RV,apartment and even a yurt; Unless your doing a mural art its removable and won't ruin the value of your home. Art on my walls and shelves is done by friends, family, independent, artists, and prints of mine and other indie artists.
I love canvas art sell canvas art, but I also sell tiny abstracts on photo prints, postcards mugs necklaces not everyone the money or space for a big canvas art.  I want art that can be in tiny . Also post cards and art on photo print paper can be framed.
I want people to be able to afford art. I might make less money on tiny art, but I feel this is something important and something more artists should be doing.
I am also mot just experimenting with prints but with tiny canvas art as well.   One project of mine will be tiny art made with spastic bits normally thrown out.

Jane Austen Unboxing video, halo top ice cream review, book review

The video is an unboxing of the Jane Austen Action Figure. Its no my video but I sent that toy
Years ago for Christmas and it was finally opened. It is not a toy for anyone under 12. It has small sharp and pointy parts.

Hallo Top ice cream review
This is my opinion and I mean no disrespect to those who disagree. I am not a Doctor and don't claim to be. I read several anti Halo top ice cream articles. All the article made me do is try the ice cream. Never even heard of Halo top before the anti Halo top articles. I showed my husband one ofthe articles and forgot about it. Then my husband completely surprised me before bed. I had no idea it was in the freezer. While this isn't a health food its not filed with Franken food ingredients. The only thing remotely questionable in the ingredients would be the Stevia and erythritol. Both are natural ingredients but some have sensitivity to these sweeteners you might have to be careful. Erythritol can cause tummy issues if over indulged. This could be a weekly treat. It was less than $5 dollars a pint Where we live but I hear its I feel still its better for you than even a half cup of most premium ice cream but no one should eat only one food. my vanilla bean top was just 240 in calories. It was good. My husband had chocolate and his tasted like a really yummy fudge-cycle. My weight yo yos a lot and it has more to do with not writing down what I am eating than sugar substitutes its easy to replace the calories saved by less sugar more food. I will buy this treat again.

Random Acts review (found on byutv on Roku) Random acts is a show you can get on BYU TV its not religious but it is inspiring. Its a hidden Camera show with a message of kindness instead of humiliation.  some of  the show has mini kindness pranks like giving a treasure boxpeople who help a woman find her wedding ring or picking up uber customers in a luxury  car. Then there is a big event which is surprising a person going through a hard time.  The show stars William Rubio, Lisa Clark and Emilie star. Aaron Woodall is also in several episodes.

Book review: Bartholomew Baggins: a Zombie With Different Cravings by crystal Marcos While I know crystal Marcos through the internet I bought the ebook version with my own money from Amazon. I didn't revive a free copy or any gifts for this review. Its a delightful poem children's picture book if you Read it on kindle PC it will be in vibrant color. Its about a cute zombie who rather plant trees. While its for younger children this might appeal to older children as well at least the older child I let read it loved finding the hidden brains.   You could make activities with this book, such as math puzzles, planting trees, baking cookies and more.

New Biggest Awesome Thrift Store Haul, why you should shop at Thrift

I didn't make the thrift haul video its just its title. Make Money with Art Online
Even if you are not an artist

1. use appropriate Key words this more important than any social media promotion. If you have the word fruitcake when your selling a cupcake painting your going to make people mad.
2. If you  find art on the web you love you can make money off it.  You can blog about the art and why you love it and links  where people can buy.You money with google AdSense and then promote the blog.  If the artist useses a company like Zazzle you can join their affiliate program and use the share links for bonus cash on top of   AdSense promote your own art in a separate article but the same blog post. 
3. Make sure your art is high quality Large size graphics that won't be pixilated.  Delete art that is cut off, pixilated, or dark art on dark text.
4. Buy or make prints for your portfolio. Postcards, and photo prints can be an economical way to show off your art or have prints on hand.

Why You should Shop at Thrift Stores

yes I buy new handmade art, dolls, and pod art prints, and when but I feel there  are benefits to thrift store shopping which I do.
I try to be thoughtful consumer. I am not a minimalist. I had a family member who used to work at the thrift store. She knew a very wealthy retired couple who volunteered at the thrift store she worked out just to get a discount.

1. Part of thrift store sales usually go to some sort of charity.
2. It reuses items that might have otherwise went to landfill.
3. Its a great place to find material for women, men and kids who are getting involved in sewing. You can buy clothes to practice sewing on that will often be cheaper than material.
4. You can save money if you shop carefully.  Sometimes its easy to overdo it.


I am not into big fireworks displays or even small ones. I am more of a family picnic sort of fourth of July. I like my holidays to be cozy. Forth of July and summer art. These links have affiliate codes in them.
