Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn
 What is Cooler Corn? Have you even heard of such thing? Well, here it goes...
Cooler corn is an awesome  way to cook and keep corn on the cob warm and ready to eat! Yes, that's right! Came across a few YouTube videos and reviews and had to try it and see if this "cooler corn" procedure worked.

Hello June!

Finally, you have arrived! Yay! Oh how I've been waiting for you! Yes, it's my Birthday month. I shall do whatever my little heart desires this entire month. I'm not holding back. I have a few things planned so far and just going with the flow the rest of the time.
Enjoying my time off from school. And I'm set to start my online summer class in a few weeks. Oh, by the way, I passed my first semester class with a...wait for it...wait for it..."A"! That's right! I am very proud of myself. Going back to college was one of the most gratifying things I could've done. Feels great!
Now to enjoy the beautiful weather Southern California has in store for us! Happy Summer!

Baba the Storyteller

Baba the Storyteller
Segerstrom Center for the Arts provided the most amazing opportunity to have Baba the Storyteller be present in each 5th grade class at my kids school. Baba uses creative ways of storytelling. He's traveled around the world and currently invited back to Columbia to be part of the Festival. How cool is that?!

He's taught the kids how to listen, use presentation voices, have confidence, and most importantly to be themselves. I had the pleasure to be present in my daughters class during Baba time. I was intrigued by the first day. I learned so much by the tools he taught the kids to use. I applied them myself to my daily doings. All I can say is... AMAZING!

Farewell Tie One On...

Sniff, sniff...going to miss you!
I have been constantly checking over at Tie One On to see what the next apron theme would be. Haven't seen one in quite awhile and have been anxiously waiting for the new theme. So to my surprise, Amy has retired the Tie One On Apron Themes! Sniff, sniff! I thanked her on her blog post for having this apron theme gig going on for such a long time. I came across her blog a few years ago and I'm glad I participated in a few apron themes.

And to end this sad blog post with a happy ending...check out one of my aprons that I submitted for the Paris apron theme! It was featured on her blog post! Au revoir...

It's Spring Time...

Beautiful day to release the butterflies!
Spring is in the blooming, birds chirping, butterflies flying and allergy season galore! My kids had captured some caterpillars and soon turned into their chrysalis. They hatched about 2 weeks later...

Great Night for NBX...

Nails By Xo at A.C.E.
The Art Crawl Experience (A.C.E.) festival was amazing! I had such an awesome time! It sure was an eventful night. I was busy the entire time doing nail art on all sorts of A.C.E. attendees...ranging from kids to men! Yeah, men! Way cool!

What a great experience to be able to be part of this. I truly enjoyed it and didn't even feel the coldness of the night! To view photos of the event, visit Art Crawl Experience (A.C.E.). And to view the nail art I did through out the night, visit Nail By Xo.

Nails By Xo at the Art Crawl Experience

I'm excited to announce that I'll be participating at the Art Crawl Experience (A.C.E.) in Anaheim as a Live Artist. A.C.E. is an art festival that takes place 4 times a year in Downtown Anaheim. There's live music, art crafts for sell, live artist painting and/or selling art, and food trucks.

I've been wanting to be part of this festival since last year but didn't know what I could provide to this event. I'm a licensed manicurist and my passion is nail art. So I decided to provide FREE nail art at this art festival. I contacted the A.C.E. coordinator, submitted my application and I was approved! Nails By Xo will officially be part of the Art Crawl Experience as a Live Artist!

Polka Dots & Chevron

Guess what came in the mail today??? Yup, a package! And what's in the package??? Yup, an apron! Yay!

I received my apron today from Kaara, my apron swap partner, over at In The Kitch With Kaara. Her blog has a lot of neat stuff, from recipes to DIY projects. And she sells cute jewelry on Etsy, Poppie Darling.

Welcome 2014...

The new year has begun. As I look back to my happenings in 2013, I have absolutely no regrets. Everything that I lived in that year was a life experience and a lesson learned somehow. Things do happen for a reason, whether they are good or bad. I've been through a lot and realized about a month ago that it was more than just me that has been through a lot. My personal life has been kept locked up because of my choosing. And without putting to much thought to it, it's affected the people around me.

Colorful Polka Dots

This was the last Apron Swap for 2013. It was nice to end the year sewing and getting back into the groove. I was partnered up with Kaara from In The Kitch With Kaara.

I did my best to fulfill her request on her apron likes. I think I did pretty good:

She likes turquoise, orange, pink, red, ruffles and half aprons. And as an added bonus, it's a reversible apron. It's hard to tell, but the apron is scalloped at the bottom. Hope she likes it. I also included a few goodies along with her apron!

Thank you Katherines Corner for hosting this apron swap!

Happy New Year!

(Apron Swap hosted by Katherine at Katherines Corner.)
