meet lucy.

I'm so excited to be a guest post on the wonderful and amazing The Little Lovebirds blog. It is one of my favorite blogs that I look forward to reading.

My name is Lucy and my blog is called Find Your Sparkle. Why "Find Your Sparkle"? I'm glad you asked. My life is pretty hectic. Between being a wife, step mom, a foster mom and a part time career woman it's very rare that I get to do something just for me. That's how the idea of starting my blog came about. I wanted to do something fun yet inspiring.

I believe in Finding Your Sparkle in your everyday life, being healthy, being creative, in being a step and foster mom, love of books and art, respecting and loving God's creations, following God...

I hope to encourage, inspire and make a difference in others on this journey we call life.

Sweet Girl (my foster daughter) and I created this super easy, yet unique memory board. 
The materials you will need are:
A canvas board, pretty paper, pretty buttons, ribbon, hot glue, needle and thread...
Some people choose to paint their canvas board, we decided to leave ours white. The first thing we did was to hot glue our pretty paper unto the left side of the board.

The second thing you want to do is set the ribbon pattern the way you like it, then gather some pretty buttons and sow them unto the canvas board making sure that the ribbon is being held tightly in place.
After sewing the buttons and hot gluing the paper. 
We added some pretty sticker and flower embellishments.
Once your memory board is finished to your liking all you have to do is add some of your favorite photos.
Below is what it looks like hanging against the wall. 
Sweet Girl and I had fun doing this easy and fun project.
Finally you simply hang it in a favorite area of your room or house to display those beautiful cards.

For other fun DIY ideas or to simply be inspired be sure to give me a visit.
Hope you have a FANTASTIC day!

  11. Luke, if it had been that straightforward Superman would have carried out that to Doomsday, right?
    If folks are saying that the Hulk and Doomsday are
    almost equal in power, I consider not, The Hulk is stronger, I digress,
    Superman could have exerted these traits in his battle with
    Doomsday, but he didn't. So why would he all of a sudden do that when he fights the Hulk. Previous battles depict a whole lot about how a person fights someone who's truly powerful.
    Also take yet another appear on the Hulks
    powers again, he can stand heat as intense as the
    core from the sunshine. In a battle within the past the Hulk backhanded
    Supes and knocked him to Jupiter, so I assume it all depends on who's writing the story. Switching topics to get a sec: inside the the crossover mag there was a race between Quicksilver and the Flash and the initial race Flash destroyed him; Quicksilver learned about the speed force in DC's Universe; remember there is no speed force
    in Marvel's universe. As soon as, QS tapped into the "speed force" he was equally as fast and somewhat bit quicker than the Flash. The Flash came to Marvel's universe and it had been
    no contest QS dusted him. We all know that for some
    reason DC makes it's hero's so much stronger since of their
    universe but Marvel's hero's adapted and came on level
    or rose above. Your transfer!
