I Love My ipod!

And all it's super cool ipod apps - Words with friends, Pandora, Cut the Rope, Instagrams, and my new favorite DashOfColor. It is really easy to use. I use my own photos and edit them using DashOfColor. I used an adorable picture of my neice Pheobe on the example below. I'd love to hear about other great apps! If you have a favorite iPod app, let me know in the comments.

Summer Fun at Yaddo Gardens

My soontobe hubby and I have been on the hunt for the perfect wedding site. Yesterday, we took a trip to the Yaddo Gardens in Saratoga Springs. And while we decided not to get married here, it was plenty beautiful and worth the tripPlus FREE, you can't beat that!

p.s. we did find the perfect spot on top of Prospect Mountain in Lake George!

DIY Brighten up your old jewelry!

This summer I am on a mission to revamp my wardrobe without spending a dime. I decided to start with the heaps of jewelry that I never wear. All I needed was a little krazy glue and some neon embroidery thread. I spent $0 on this DIY! I had a bunch of embroidery floss already, but if you don’t you can buy it at just about any craft store.
Above: I chose a few necklaces that I hardly ever wore and that I felt really needed some spicing up. There really are not any rules or steps to this DIY – I started by wrapping the floss randomly to see what I could come up with. 
Here's what I created:

Using brightly colored embroidery thread, I wrapped the thread around the cord in a random pattern, using the krazy glue to attach it to the cord on the ends – the krazy glue works really well, it hasn’t budged at all!

For the chain like necklace, I dabbed some krazy glue on the end of the embroidery thread and pinched it together. This formed an almost needle-like tip that I used to weave the thread through the chain.

I like the way the neon thread looks with the colors in the stones. 
These also look great layered!
