Removing Ink from your Couch Cushions

Removing Ink From Your Couch Cushions!


Well I hate to have to share a post like this because it means little Josie got a hold of a pen and did a number on my couch but thank goodness I know how to get it out and I wanted to share this with you today! 

Here is a look at what she did to our sectional.


I know what you are thinking..."where were you??"


I was gone less than a minute I'm sure of it and she went to town!


Now here is the beauty of this cleaning trick! It is so easy all that you need is

Rubbing Alcohol 
A Towel (I like it a little damp)
and a spray bottle (or just a more wet cloth)

All you have to do is cover the area of pen on the couch with the Rubbing Alcohol 


I let it sit for just a few seconds and then rub it out with the slightly damp towel.


This is what happens! It's a Miracle!


This is after I have used the spray bottle and just lightly sprayed it and wiped it all up. I find this dilutes the remaining alcohol and avoids leftover "wet spots".

Now just let it dry and it is like it never happened!

**Note: Test a section of your couches fabric in a non visible spot before treating the rest of the couch in case your material does not work. ** 

I have a Micro-suede sectional and it works like a charm

Here's the little cutie that drew all over my couch 


9 months and we just LOVE her!

Good luck!

Felt Bows and Flowers

There's no such thing as too many hair accessories for your little one, right? Well today I wanted to share my good find that turned into a great DIY project! I absolutely love the felt bow trend but I am not yet brave enough to make my own and I don't want to spend $5 for one tiny little flower or bow so until now I have just window shopped for them.  




This was a lucky find! I found these cute bows and flowers in the $1 check out line bins at Michaels. You heard correctly, $1 for each bundle!


I am a sucker for a checkout line deal but this one was one I could not pass up and I think I got one of each color! (how could I not ?!)

So let me show you how easy these are! Mine took me about 30 minutes to do all of them and now miss Josie has 24 new hair bows! (she is much less excited than I am)

To start you will want to get something to fasten them onto. My baby has a ton of hair so I chose to use double pronged clips (sally's) rather than headbands but those would be adorable as well! I also recommend getting an 8x10 sheet of felt from the craft store as well (these are under $1).

What you need:
Felt Flowers or bows
Extra Felt (I used grey and white)
Single or Double Pronged clips 
Glue gun
Scissors

First, I wanted to line the clip to make it hold better in the hair as well as give the flower or bow more of a surface to grip. I did this by cutting out a piece of felt that fit between the 2 sides and ran along the top of the clip as well. 



 I found it fastest to fold the felt over clipping the clips along it and then cutting in between rather than individually measuring each one out.


After I did that I took them off of the felt and put glue along the whole strip and inserting the clip as far as it went and then folding the rest over the top of the clip sandwiching the top inside.


After that has set until cooled (by the time you do them all the first ones are ready to use) all you need to do is use a small amount of glue on the top of the clip and attach the flower or bow!




That's all there is to it! And now you have adorable clips for your cute little one!


These come out to about $.39 each! I like that price!



asking this new little sitter and almost crawler to be still was nearly impossible today!


As always I love your feedback! Let me know how it goes for you and even share your pictures with me!!

Deal of the Day!

Today I wanted to share a great deal that I was able to get at CVS. This deal can get you 198 loads of laundry for under $10!


Purex Laundry Detergent and is a buy 1 get 2 free until 3/22! On top of that you can use this coupon for an additional $1-1.50 off of 2. Depending what is still available. My shopping trip went like this



6 bottles of Purex Laundry Detergent (6.29 each) $37.74
 Apply buy 1 get 2 free -$25.16
 Apply 3 $1.50 off coupons -$4.50
 New total = $8.08!

That is .04 per load of laundry! I don't know about you but that is an amount I could live with!

Good luck!

Fidlin Fridays!

**The link up tool is not currently working**
I will try to get it up again later I am so sorry!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones! We had a wonderful time celebrating Josie's first Christmas with my husbands side of the family.  It was a day of family, presents, food and treats galore! 
It is always fun to see what everyone brings to share and after seeing this recipe from last weeks link party I am very interested in trying out the Perfect paleo pie crust from Passionate Pure Life. I have many friends who eat Paleo and absolutely love it so I have some researching to do because I think I'm missing out!

This pie crust sounds awesome and anytime you can have pie I believe you should!

Happy Holidays!
