Fall in Love…

UTT Fall Banner

Hey UTT Friends! I’m very excited to share this post with you because today marks the FIRST DAY OF FALL!  This is my absolute favorite season because the colors of nature are so beautiful as the leaves begin showcasing their different colors.  Also, the weather during this time begins cooling down quite a bit, inviting us to throw on our peacoats, turtlenecks, leggings, and fuzzy boots…how cozy!

But besides prancing around in warm, cozy threads, the Fall season offers us the opportunity to gather up with people we care about to share amazingly fun and heartwarming memories.  So what better way to plan your wonderful Fall journey then by creating a Fall Top 10 List!  You might be asking, why just 10?  Well, it’s obvious that there’s an endless amount of activities we all want to do during the Fall season, but for the sake of time, we just aren’t able to manage every single thing we desire to do in life.  Besides, why create a list that’s overloaded with so many activities that you end up feeling overwhelmed and unable to complete them all in one season?  That just defeats the purpose of enjoying the activities in the first place.

By limiting yourself to your Top 10 lineup, you can ensure that you, your family & friends will complete all the activities while creating quality moments together.  Plus, you can save your ongoing list of activities for next Fall, instead of running out of things to do when it rolls around again.  So reuse your list to create a tradition with your family and friends…it’s a wonderful way to look forward to each year! Below is a Top 10 List that I created and designed for you to print and complete with your friends and family. But of course, if you prefer to make your own Fall Top 10 List instead, I included a blank template for you to download and use for your Top 10 most desired activities.  I know that some of those activities are a bit girly, so fellas I know you wouldn’t be drawn to complete those…LOL!

So whatever you decide to do in this Fall season, have an amazing time and cherish every minute of your time with others!  Enjoy the templates and HAPPY FALL!

Much Love To You This Fall,

Thrifty Thursday: Nail Polish Key Caps

Key Collage

If you’re like me, you have a keyring full of look-alike-keys with no clue in telling which one is the house key or the storage key.  Annoying right? Not to mention that at nighttime it’s even more difficult to tell them apart.  I’m sure you’re already hip to the PVC/ leather keycap trend to solve this issue, but what do you do when those caps get worn and torn off?  Lose money buying another pack?  I think not.  That can all be avoided because I discovered something that’s durable, unique, and a lot less costly in the end.

To keep you from constantly spending money on keycaps, opt into painting your keys with nail polish.  This solution made me very happy because I own a lot of it and I’m sure you do too! Lucky us! 😀  So here you are, an easy, thrifty way to customize your keys without the hassle of fussing with thick, rigid keycaps. Yay!

As you can see in the B/A photos above, your keys look sleeker and more stylish than those bulky caps.  Plus, you can design them however you want.  Your imagination sets the stage for your designs, whether you want your keys to be glittery, neon, pastel, glow-in-the-dark, etc.

So UTT friends, thank you for allowing me to save you a little moolah today.  It was my special way of sharing this fun and cost effective solution with you.  Stay thrifty my friends! 😉

Much Love,

Tempest

Artist Spotlight: Marion Bolognesi

13_loucopy

To all those who appreciate the beauty and wonder a fabulous piece of artwork can bring, here’s a little beauty I stumbled upon and decided to share with you.  This piece titled “Watercolor Faces” was inspired and created by Marion Bolognesi.  Bolognesi is an artist and designer who pursues her artistic inspirations out of New York City where she currently works and resides.  Based upon what I’ve read about her, Bolognesi’s paintings evoke strong emotion through her use of vibrant and complementing color schemes which favor well to people who admire her work.

I would have to say that her effective use of white space along with the watercolor is what drew me to this piece.  Whatever technique Bolognesi infuses into her paintings, it certainly emits her passion for beauty and appeal to the eyes.  If you would like to view more of Bolognesi’s work click the photo above and check out her website.

It’s been a real treat to share this with you as well as discover a talented artist, so if you have something neat you would like me to feature in my next post, connect with me by giving me feedback in the Feedback Hub.

Much Love,

Tempest

Get your crochet hooks out because I want to share a book that just released today on AMAZON.COM for the Kindle.  As you already know, I am passionate about anything artsy and this book falls into my crafty radar!  I am particularly fond of this book because the author, Tiara Thornton, is my sister and company owner of Sassy Curls which strives in “helping women embrace their individuality, value their self-worth, and discover their dreams”.
