Easy Diy Pop Up Card

December 21, 2018 0 Opinions

Be sure to check out my recent #blogmas posts and Instagram shares  here


Hey friends and welcome to another Blogmas post.

Can you believe we only have one more post left after this year :0 I know I sort of been a failure at it but if you stick with me until next Blogmas, then I can promise you that it will be better. Not to mention in 2019 I have some fun posts coming!! Get excited

If there is one thing I love, it is sending people personalized cards. Call me old-fashioned, but I love an actual paper card giving. I know there is a ton of electronic cards online but I feel it is not the same. When I was younger, I would always make my mom a birthday card. I never had the money so it was easy to do since I had all the materials at home. She loved it even more than the gifts, had I bought her something.

Nothing says I Love You or Appreciate You then a personalized card!!

I have made is my goal in 2019, to start making more personalized cards or popup cards. Maybe even start an online shop of personalized, popup cards ;)

The great thing about this DIY is that the cards can be for all year round. Not just for Christmas, you can make one for Valentine's, Halloween, birthday... The choice is really up to you. Oh, you know what would be fun, a photo popup card. No, we are not doing that here, just an idea of all the cards you can make with this simple tutorial.

Like all my other Diy's, this is really easy to make. I want to keep things simple but fun. Ok, shall we get on to crafting??

If you do any of my crafts, make sure to tag me on Instagram #fablemooncember

Step 1- 

  I am going to take my purple sheet of paper and fold that in half. I will do the same for my brown sheet of paper. 

Since I want my brown sheet of paper to be a tad bit smaller than my purple sheet, I will cut of just 1 centimeter on the bottom and top. 

Step 2-

   I will then cut 2 slits in off my brown sheet of paper in the middle. Making sure they are about 1 inch apart. This will form the tab to add your art. Cut a bigger or wider slit depending on your art. 

Then you should fold that tab inward

 See examples below

I had to cut my slit about 3 inches long
christmas craftcraft    

I will then glue my brown sheet of paper on my purple sheet. You can see from the example above that I used tape since I did not have glue. 

Step 3-

   I will then figure out what art I want to use. For this, I chose to do a Santa face  I traced him using my white sheet of paper, I colored him in and cut him out.

Step 4-

  This step will be the tricky one as we are attaching Santa to the tab. We take Santa and glue him to the middle to the tab.

This is why I needed to make my tab just a bit longer. I kind of made him a bit too big

Step 5-

   Now you just decorate your card. Get creative with this. Add glitter, stickers, a sweet quote... This is the part that I always loved about making cards. 

Go gift it to someone or even keep it for yourself

  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and had as much fun as I did creating it. Good luck and Hva efun

Top Tips for Dating in the New Year

December 19, 2018 0 Opinions
* I did receive compensation for this post*

Read more on Blogmas here 


Hey friends and welcome to a #blogmas post.

  As we move towards the end of the year and enjoy all the festivities and get ready for the New Year, a lot of singles look to get their dating life kick-started. I for sure know that dating can be a hassle, no matter what age you are. 

  • Meeting the person
  • Asking the person out
  • Picking perfect outfit
  • First awkward date
  • After date saga
  • Call or no?
  • Waiting for the second date

It is a struggle. Today I have some tips for you that may be just what you need. Do not be scared to make 2019 your year in everything.

Be sure to comment down below any other tips you have

Tip 1- Finding the guy

    Sometimes finding a guy is not as easy as going to the store, bumping into a guy while trying to pick out a pickle, awkwardly trying to think of pickle puns while not being too sexual. If you are lucky, then it can be. 

For most of us though, we try online dating. 

#FunFact 49 Million People have tried online dating

What is great about online dating is you don't have to try and meet these guys or have the awkward "want to go out?" on the phone chat. Most are texting.

Be sure to try this site tayside dating

Tip 2- Dating Profile

   I am sorry but I don't think anyone really wants a profile that includes "I have 4 cats" with the list your cat's name.

What they do want to see?

  • What you like to do for fun
  • What you are interested in like movies, music
  • Your future goals in terms of success. Hearing you want 4 kids may be a turn off for most men. Leave that for the 3rd date
  • What makes you, you
  • Tell them what you want
  • Something that shows your personality. Keep your profile sounding like how you sound

Keep it fun, interesting, funny. Nothing about your childhood, anything about your ex is for sure a no

Tip 3- The Photo

  Picking your profile photo can make or break. Even more than your information in your profile.

For a hookup- a more revealing photo may be the way to go. Make sure to keep it casual. You really don't want to show off everything all at once.

Smile- It shows that you are outgoing, fun and interested in finding a date

Make sure you are clean with your hair and outfit, not all a mess. This just signals a mess of a person. No one wants that

Leave the funny, humor for the profile information. You really don't want your picture to look like you are trying to be a joke. Which means no sticking your tongue out, funny filter, plushies, action figures...

Tip 4- Be Yourself

  With anything and everything, you do whether it is dating or business, just be yourself.

Just be yourself!! 

Most times people are turned off from online dating because they know that 70% of the people lie about alot of things. Age and photo are the main things people lie about.

Even with dating in real life, you think a guy is cute or nice so you ask him on a date. Turns out he is a total jerk.

I hope you enjoyed my tips and I hope they work for you in the future. Make sure to have fun and don't take dating to serious
 Good luck

How to Use Left over Wrapping Paper

December 13, 2018 0 Opinions

Be sure to check out my recent Blogmas post by going to my advent calendar 

Hello friends and welcome to another Blogmas post.

I was very much debating whether or not to post this as-
       1. No one seems to be reading my blog
       2. It is basically just envelope making

As you can tell I did change my mind of posting this. It was because-
    1. It is a way of using leftover wrapping paper
    2. Cost less then buying envelopes
    3. It goes hand in hand with my next diy
    4. This diy and the next can be used for days other than just Christmas

If you are like me then you go crazy for Christmas wrapping paper. All the styles, colors, design.. Oh my, I just love it. They make me want to buy more and more every season. And of course, I do buy them. Come the end of the season and I am left with 10 different Disney style wrapping paper rolls.

Since I do buy more every season, I decided to do a diy with some 'ugly' ones I have floating around. This diy is simple and can be used on any occasion.

Now we all know I am awful at opening statements, so let's just get on with it shall we.

Be sure to tag me on Instagram if you do any of my diy's #fablemooncember

Step 1. 

   Unroll the wrapping paper. 
   Place the sheet of paper on your wrapping paper
   Outline the size of the paper
   Cut it out leaving an inch of extra material

     Step 2-

Fold the edges of the wrapping paper about 2 inches 

Step 3-

      Take your construction paper and fold it in half
      Cut that half
      Attach that half to the folded bottom and sides of the wrapping paper with glue

     Step 4-

Finished. Quick, easy and breezy. Now you can add a card inside the envelope and tape it. 

*Protip- For more fun add a different wrapping paper the first set of wrapping paper. Here you can see I used a blue sheet of paper. Wrapping paper on one side and blue on the other. I did this in reverse for the other.

Very Easy DIY Elf on the Shelf

December 09, 2018 2 Opinions

  Don't forget to view my advent calendar for #blogmas post day 1-8 and so on

Hello friends and welcome back to blogmas.

 As you can tell from the title and my last post, I have been in a very creative mood. So I was thinking of what kind of fun crafts I can do. 
On December 16th, we are making a Pop Up Christmas card. 
Of course, my last post was a Diy Pokemon Journal , which came out great and I am having so much fun creating. 

I wanted to do a wreath but that failed. I will have to post a photo of that on Instagram 

Then I got to thinking 'I want an elf on the shelf' as I always seem to forget to buy one. Honestly what better way then to make my own. Mine came out kinda cute so I decided that would be the post I would share.

If you are unaware of the elf story here is a snippet from their website

'The magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his naughty and nice lists by taking note of a family’s Christmas adventures and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole nightly. Each morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to spot them.'

Sounds and looks adorable. I really don't have kids but I do love the idea of these little guys and girls.  

This craft requires no sewing of anything. It is simple enough that a kid can help with an adult present. You can be creative as you want. Remember if you do make this then be sure to tag me on instagram #elfdiy 
Enjoy your crafting and always use safety :)

*Some of these photos were taken after I finished my craft. Which is why some of them are not the right color. I did the craft and deleted the photos.*

Step 1:

    We are going to take our toilet roll and glue red paper all over it. You can also choose another color if you don't want the elf to wear red. Everything is up to you

 I, of course, did it the hard way and decided to spray paint my toilet paper roll instead.

Step 2:

    We are going to take the leftover red paper and draw the elf's legs, arms and hat. 

I did the arms and legs by cutting 2 diagonal lines 3 inches apart and about 8 inches long. I did that 4 times. I wanted to make sure I have a little extra length to glue it on the roll. I did not draw hands or feet but you can. 

We take the pieces, fold a little L on top then glue 2 on the bottom and 2 on the side. This I had to use tape for since my glue would not stick to the paint. 

Set the hat aside

Step 3:

   We are going to take the white paper and make the elf's head, white neck thing (see photo above), a piece of hat and pom for the hat. I used a pill bottle for the size of the head and a penny for the pom. 

Draw a little face and some hair for the guy or girl. Don't forget his ears

Step 4:

      We are going to take the white piece for the hat and glue it onto the bottom of the hat. Then add the pom to the edge. 

Then we shall glue that hat onto our little guys head

Step 5:

   We are going to cut a small rectangle (like the arms or legs) out of the white paper, this will make putting the head on easier. 

We are going to cut a little link across the middle of the neck piece. Next, we shall take the rectangle we just cut out and put it through that whole. 

We are going to attach the face to the rectangle by gluing the face in front. That was some of the neck piece can be in the front and back 

Basically, it should look like this ⇧⇧

   Then we are going to take the rest of the white piece and attach it to the inside of the toilet paper roll. I squished the toilet paper roll to make him a little thinner. 

Done your finished elf should look something like this guy

Hopefully, you understood what I meant. Here is the completed version of the Elf on the shelf. I think he came out nice and cute. If you need help then feel free to comment down below. 

Be sure to tune in Wednesday as I have an all new post for you.

Very Easy DIY Pokemon Journal

December 05, 2018 0 Opinions
Be sure to check out my advent calendar for past and future post. You can also go here to see when I will be posting and when I will be sharing blog sites.

 Hey friends and welcome back to #blogmas

With the new Pokemon Let's Go Eevee, Let's Go Pikachu out and the soon to be released Detective Pikachu, Pokemon is now in demand more than ever. With Christmas coming, that means kids and adults are going to want something Pokemon related.

You can buy them Pokemon Trainer's Notebook which is actually a fun activity book.

Or you can go the creative way and make them their very own journal. What's great about this is we get to customize the front and back however we want it. It's fun, easy and creative. It's so easy that (with adult supervision) a little kid can do it.

I been wanting to make a Pokemon journal since my  Journaling 101 post but did not know how since I did not have a printer. Luckily this diy can be used with or without a printer. More fun without a printer if you ask me.

If you notice in that post, my journal will be all about my Pokemon Go experience. I am excited to start this journey of creating and journaling with you.

If you do make this journal, then feel free to tag me on Instagram #pokemonjournaldiy

Without further ado, since I really and not good at intros, let us get on with the diy

Ps You can do this diy for a ton of other things like love journal, Rick & Morty or anything you think of. Does not have to be Pokemon

Step 1- 
  We are going to take the 2 color paper we have and cut it to the shape of our notebook. We will glue this to the front and back of the notebook. 
   The front and back don't have to be the same color. Be creative. You can also add paper to the inside of the cover if your notebook contains any print inside. 

 I will be doing purple for the front and back cover, blue for the inside, blue for the edge of the notebook. 

Step 2-

   Here is the fun part. We need to find an image of Pokemon that we like to create our cover. This you can print out or draw. I have no printer so I am going to trace and color. We will need our white sheet of paper for this. 
 To find images I suggest   Google images. You can also get printables here

I will be looking for something that says Pokemon Go.

Step 3-

  After we have colored and printed those images, we are going to safely cut them out. Then we shall glue them onto the front and/or the back of the journal

Just like that, you are done. Congrats you have made a journal all your own!!!! See I told you that was easy. This is my finished front cover. 

I do hope you have fun creating this journal, creating the inside of the journal. If you give it to someone, I do hope they like it also

Happy Crafting

*Warning- This post may have triggering effects, so read cautiously* 

Self harming is when you harm yourself on purpose. This can include cutting yourself, burning yourself, hitting yourself and many more.

I didn't know much about self harm when I started or that it was even a thing. I just liked the feeling.

If you self harm then please please seek help that way you can live a 'normal' life with no scars

Leave a comment down below telling me what you wish you knew before self harming

I wish I knew-  Self harm is an addiction

I wish I knew-  It won't just be a phase that I will grow out of

I wish I knew-  I didn't have to hide it from people I love

I wish I knew-   How happy it made me feel

I wish I knew-  How bad I felt after

I wish I knew-  Many many other people have the same addiction

I wish I knew-  That it could evolve into worse things

I wish I knew-   How much it would ruin my body

I wish I knew-    How much people would judge

I wish I knew-   The toughness of having to hide it from everyone thinking they will judge or hate me

I wish I knew-  That it is a very tough struggle overcoming self harm

I wish I knew-  That I am not crazy, I just need help

I wish I knew-  There were other ways of taking away my pain like talking to someone or writing it down

I wish I knew-  My mom would be upset when she found out

Holiday Mental Health Tips

November 26, 2018 2 Opinions

Hello there and welcome to another post.

"It's the most wonderful time of the year" Yeah right. More like it's the most stressful time of the year. Time to make everything perfect and entertain family you only see this time of year because you really can't stand them. Of course it does not have to be stressful.

Some Tips For You


  Walk away to somewhere alone even if it is the bathroom or shower. Lock yourself in there and breath. This is great for when you are stressed or fighting or anytime you need to walk away.

Breath in and out. Repeat.


   Sounds dumb yes but it works. Take a deep breath in and out then count 1-6

Make a List-

    Nothing like being disorganized to make you even more stressed out.

Make a list of:
gifts you need to buy
food to make
decorations you need

Make a list of everything and anything you need to remember

Enjoy it:

Sure you may hate your family right now and want to kill them but you know you love them.

Remember that many people at the holidays don't have any friends or family to celebrate it with. So be happy that you do

Mini Wish and Ebay Haul

November 11, 2018 0 Opinions
Hello friends and welcome to another post.

Tis the season for shopping, eh?? If you are like me then any season is shopping season. 

I have noticed in my older age and my mom's influence, that my purchases have been more of what I need then what I want. Even though this haul, you may be like "but do you really need ..." That answer is yes and ssshh 

Some of these items are things in my room, which is of course is a sneak peak of Room Tour, which of course we know is coming in #blogmas My room is 70% done, though I shall still share it during #blogmas When I finish my room, I will show a full room tour also (2019) 

Enough with the chit-chat, I am sure you want to see my mini haul. None of which are sponsored, although I am getting money back for my puppy toy purchase. 

In the comments below tell me if you prefer Ebay or Wish. 


  Notebook This is just a fun book to get with your creative side

 Star Projector This works great with the aesthetic of my room which of course you will be seeing in Blogmas I tried to get this at Five Below but my local store didn't have it so I bought it on here

Five Below

 I use this Moon Lamp every night. I love the color changing. Alot of the times I will use green but I also love the purple/blue color

I love the idea of this Pillow since you can color it your own way. I also love the quote. Again great with the aesthetic of my room. Leave a comment below if you know the aesthetic (look at my blog)

  This I did not go into the store looking for. I went looking for a prompt journal but I really did not like it. I saw this Book so I looked inside and loved it. I want to do a whole review on Adam J Kurtz and his books when I get them all. Be sure to follow the blog so you can know when that will be up. Sometime in 2019


Be sure to use code -hggzhvp at checkout if you are new to Wish so you can 50% off your first order

   I got this Washi Tape mainly since it was cute and I wanted to put up my Dream wall sign with it. You can see a better image and the Dream sign here

For Halloween, I wanted to do some cute stickers with yellow glow in the dark nail polish. However my nail polish did not show up in time (nor is it here yet) but I was able to add the Stickers to my fingers. I still keep putting them on my thumbs even though it is way after Halloween. I want to purchase more for Christmas 

I also ordered a wolf wall art where you put little sequins on it to make it look 3d and cool, but it has not come yet. You will be able to see it at Blogmas all hung up


 *We got this cute rope toy from cher_idea on Instagram We love it. It came in just two days. We don't use the ball since Kobe tends to try and rip it up. Rope toys are great for dogs teeth and to keep them from ripping up all their toys. Nice and durable

Ok that is all I have. Which is your favorite that I bought?? Do you have any of these things?? Hope you have a great week. I will see you next Sunday for an all new post

The Secret to Good Face Cleanser

October 28, 2018 0 Opinions

 Hello friends and welcome to another post

   Today we are talking about face cleansers. If you are like me you have been on the lookout for an inexpensive face cleanser that will not only help with pores but also not leave your skin so oily. I have been also on the hunt for a good charcoal cleanser since they seem to be really cool and work well for your skin. 

  I looked at wish for their products but I know with Wish, their products are not always what they seem to be. Better safe then getting an allergic reaction. 
So I tried looking at places like Target, you know affordable places. Which lead me to Walmart and this new skin care line called Found. I began to look at how intriguing their products sounded. BlackBerry infused bb cream, coffee-infused under eye cream... Just sounded so cool. I came across this  Facial Detox Kit and knew I had to try it. It had all the things I wanted- the charcoal, the whole system, the pore reducer and something to help my oily skin :)

So if you would like to see my review on this product then keep reading.  

*Before you ask, no was not sponsored or given any of these products for free. I saw this at Walmart and got it for my birthday.*

I do wish to do more posts on this Found line since they have many products I want to try out. Most of the products are not cheap but affordable. But if you think of it for their type of products that include BlackBerry infused bb cream, coffee-infused under eye cream, then the price is very reasonable. 

Make sure you got to your local Walmart to see if they have any of the Found line. Try out the cleanser and tell me what you think of it also. Did you notice a change of your pores or oily skin?? 

The Product

The box is a fairly good size for $15. I am not exactly sure if they sell it in stores as my local store did not have it. It is free shipping if you include $15 more worth of products. 

                  I shall start my review with the face cleanser, then the gel and finally the mask

↖↖A drop of the cleanser                   ⇑⇑ Cleanser rubbed around


  The cleanser has activated charcoal that is supposed to absorb excess oil and refine the look of pores. 
This cleanser is grey/black but will go on your face clear. 
I like to first cleanse my face with Noxzema even before applying this since I like to be extra clean. 

A drop of the gel                                                   Cleanser rubbed in

After cleansing, I apply the quince leaf mattifying gel what's that supposed to help absorb excess oil and reduce the appearance of pores. 
I apply a thin layer focusing on the parts of my faces where I get more oily such as my forehead, cheeks and nose.

    A drop of the mask on hand                                           Mask rubbed on hand                                                               

This mask is mud based so it will go on your face grey/black. The mask is supposed to detoxify impurities and toxins from congested pores. After 10 minutes of having it on, I can feel my face get cleaner as well as the mask being dry to the touch. 

What I like to do is wash my face with Noxzema in the shower. I'm glad I'm all dressed and waiting for my hair to dry, I will put on the mask for about 20 minutes. I like to rinse it off using my tub as if has more pressure then my sink. I will then pat dry, apply the gel to my face and brush my hair while I wait for for the gel to dry a bit. 

My verdict-

For the price of $15 you get all three products which is not bad.

  • I do notice my skin feels cleaner after using the whole kit. 
  • My pores are reduced and have become less frequent
  • I noticed no redness, dry skin or any irritation while using these product

I do think the cleanser could clean your skin better. I don't feel it cleaning my skin while it is on which is the main reason I to cleanse with Noxzema before using it. 
If you use the cleanser every day, it will run out quickly but the good news is they sell them all individually

The problem with me though is my skin does get very oily so after an hour of having the gel on, my skin gets back oily self.
 I don't think this has anything to do with the gel. I am sure if you do not have too much of a oily skin that it will work great for you. 
If you have wicked oily skin then you may not notice too much a difference in that area.

I think the mask could go on a bit more even. I do notice that there are patches when applying the mask. Other then that, the mask is great

Should you buy it??

I do for sure think that this is worth going out to buy and try. There is really not anything with charcoal that will reduce pores and help mattify your face for this price. Clearisil is $20 for their 3 set kit. I know for me they always seem to cause dry skin while this kit does not. I am not saying it is the best but I also know that it is not the worst.

Like I said above, this line is great and natural for your skin.

Life Lesson in Finding Dory

October 21, 2018 2 Opinions

I decided to add this to my You Need Help posts since I think this is a very important topic that everyone should know. Which you can see my past posts here I highly suggest you do go check those out. 

The Post

So today we are talking about the key thing to take away from this movie. A life lesson one might say. Now I know this movie came out over 2 years ago but Pixar took 10years to release a sequel to Finding Nemo so, in comparison, 2 years is not bad ;)

If you are unaware Finding Dory is about a fish named Dory who has very short term memory loss. In this movie, she is trying to find her parents and where she came from. It is a really great movie and I highly suggest you check it out if you have not already.

A fish who is looking for her family, yeah how does that have a life lesson?? 
  Well, for one thing, calm your horses, and I am getting to that part.

First, did you enjoy this movie?? Which one was your favorite of the two?? Make sure you leave me a comment down below. 

Let's first dive in more into the plot of Finding Dory. The plot below is taken from Wikipedia I don't own it. 

"Dory, a regal blue tang, gets separated from her parents as a child. As she grows up, Dory attempts to search for them, but gradually forgets them due to her short-term memory loss. In the flashback of the previous film, Finding Nemo, she joins Marlin – a clownfish looking for his missing son Nemo – after accidentally swimming into him.
One year later, Dory is living with Marlin and Nemo on their reef. One day, Dory has a flashback and remembers that she has parents. She decides to look for them, but her memory problem is an obstacle. She eventually remembers that they lived at the Jewel of Morro Bay across the ocean in California, thanks to Nemo mentioning its name "

The Life Lessons
  • She is kind to everybody no matter what type of fish they are
  • She trusts in herself
  • She is very optimistic as seen in her catchphrase "just keep swimming" which means "don't give up" and when helping Marlin in Finding Nemo she is optimistic in getting his son back
  • She knows there is always another way around a situation


Dory never tries to be anybody but herself. She knows that she has a memory problem but she never finds any fault in it or uses it to make people feel guilty for her. She does not let her memory problem stop her from looking for her parents or doing anything in life. 

In fact, her memory problem may be a feature as to why she lives her life to the fullest. She knows life is meant to be lived in the moment. 

She knows that can is capable of doing anything she sets her mind to despite her disability.

This is a great lesson for anyone with mental health issues or any issues. Just be yourself
