Catching Fireflies Giveaway Winner

We have a winner from Random.org with comment #5 

Susan said...
I especially like the heart measuring spoons and the bird measuring spoons. Those cookbooks that have 500 apetizers, cookies, and cupcakes would be pretty awesome, too! They would make great little 'happies' for a friend.

Thanks to all who entered! 

Catching Fireflies has offered a discount to Fancy Frugal Life readers with the code:

Fourth of July Fabric Scrap Flip Flops & Rosette Flowers

Are you all set for the 4th?...Next week we will be at the beach for the holiday so I've been packing and getting ready. Yay!! Can't wait to get out of this crazy hot summer weather in Phoenix that one really ever gets "used to"!
I made some of these embellished flip flops for my daughter and I to wear. I saw a pair at a local kids boutique and thought they looked easy to make...and they were!!
It's just fabric strips and ribbon cut and tied with a double knot...That's it. No measuring. Simple and so cute!

We are twinsies in our flip flops and watermelon toes!!
  I had some left over patriotic fabric so I played around in the craft closet last night and came up with these to wear as pins or hair clips.
 I was so excited that the patriotic ruffle shorts from Groopdealz came in the mail this week, Aren't they over the top cute?! I think they were around $7....

 I hope you all have a fabulous week. I won't post again until will get back from San Diego! (except I will pick a winner for the Catching Fireflies giveaway) .....Happy Fourth of July!!! xoxo

Ruffle Watermelon Shirt

So our watermelon nails inspired a cute ruffle shirt handmade with love for my baby girl :)

I bought a $3 Old Navy top and had everything else already...love when that happens! I  ironed on this red fabric with Wonder Under and then made a ruffle with a couple long pieces of fabric. I folded the fabric horizontal and then on the open ended side stitched all the way down. After you have a long enough ruffle, close off the stitch.
 After that I sewed down my ruffle and then sewed green ric rac on top. Last came a few buttons..So easy. I know this can all be done with the machine, but I kinda like sitting down on the couch and relaxing doing this kinda thing :)
She loves her cute shirt!

Imaginisce i-bond Cordless Glue Gun Review

What's pink....cordless...and has lights! My new cute glue gun!!! The craft closet has a new addition!
This is the Imaginisce i-bond cordless glue gun! I was beyond excited to get this sent to me. I had been using a broke down old mini glue gun that didn't get very hot.

Other than the fact its cordless, lightweight, and so cute, it actually gets very hot and does a great job!
Visit here to see where you can buy one near you. I've also seen them on Amazon.com

I also like that it has a headlight.
Here is my first project I made with it.   

Stay tuned for that tutorial!

DIY Watermelon Nails (Mani/Pedi)

Here's a fun pedicure idea...watermelon nails!!
There's probably lots of ways to do this but here's what I used.
pink or red nail polish
light green nail striper (has a really long brush..found at beauty supply)
dark green nail striper
black nail polish
dotting tool or toothpick/bobby pin
Here are the four steps!

Paint the nails pink or red and then make a stripe with the light green. Paint dark green stripes on the ends. Lastly, dot on some seeds with black polish. Easy and cuuuute!

I did red on my nails!
