Easy Rhinestone Easter Eggs

These might just be the easist Easter eggs to make on the planet! And they are so, so sparkly and super fun for a little centerpiece or to display as an easy décor accent.

You just need some inexpensive plastic Easter eggs and some stick-on rhinestones!  I liked this super pretty set from the Target craft aisle.  Other than that, you need to arrange the rhinestones in a pattern around your egg in color or shape order.  You could also mix it up and do all of one size of rhinestone or apply the rhinestones like polka dots. It’s up to you and your creativity!

I did end up using the rhinestones pretty fast and kinda wish I got another set. Just an FYI if you plan on making quite a few.

I decided to set mine on a bed of glitter paper!  I think these could also look pretty on a glitter dish or in a glitter accented jar.  I’m not sure I can handle all the bling!  It’s giving my eyes sparkle overload!!

Until next time Swellions!


Simply Sparkly Pumpkins


Sometimes the best crafts aren’t ones you spend hours making. They are just easy, breezy, and beautiful (sorry Cover Girl). The other night I wanted to jazz up some mini pumpkins while at a friends house. I had brought over materials, but not a lot, but did have on hand some sequins and some Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue and truth be told, that was all I really needed! All I did was just add a bit of glue and glue on each sequin for the star polka dot ones, and for the cascading sequin pumpkin, I realized just kinda dumping the sequins on there and then repositioning them worked quite nicely. I drizzled the glue down the side of the pumpkin for the clumpy sequin look on the sides.



I love me some mini pumpkins! Don’t you?

Until next time Swellions!

Cute new shoes and other great deals in swell history

new shoes

Check out my cute new zebra flats. OK, so they are a half size too small, but I’m thinking I will deal with it…I’ll stretch ’em out, right? So, I totally got them for only $10 bucks at Target, which I think is a fab deal! I love them so much! Love the combination of zebra and sparkle. I think I have a loud personality, but my wardrobe doesn’t always reflect it. It’s little touches that earrings, shoes, and belts that you see more of a reflection of me in. I’m pretty casual and conservative in my everyday wears.

I was thinking about it and I’m pretty crazy about deals like most of you are as well. I can’t say I’m always a big deal spotter…I HATE and pretty much refuse to wade through the big cardboard box bins at Express. It’s not worth it that much to me, but I have found a few awesome finds over the years. For example:

– A red denim mini skirt from Old Navy for 99¢
– A pair of black going out/butt kicking books for $5 (also at Target)
– A navy and white lined pair of Steve Madden kicks from Ross for $2
– A Levi’s dark denim jacket for $8 at JCPenney
– A Jantzen swimsuit for $9 at a Lee factory outlet

I’ve prob. gotten a lot more that I can’t think about, but when I get a good deal, I wear it like a badge of honor. Ha ha. I’m not always good about remembering coupons, but back in the day when I got an additional percentage off as a JCPenney associate, you better believe I worked it! I remember I once got 2 sets of nice red JCPenney brand towels for under $10. A set included the large towel, hand towel, and washcloth.

What kind of deal have you gotten over the years that you are super proud of?

Until next time Swellions!
