Craft supplies and a sweet surprise | Go Out With Me #5

What’s up, everybody! I hope you all are having a happy day or night!

Today, Goodmommy told me that she had to go out of the house to do some basic errands. Since I needed some more rubber bands–which I use on my Wonder Loom to create bracelets, necklaces, rings and other tiny creations–and I hadn’t been out of the house for a while, today would be the perfect opportunity for me to do so.

We had such an amazing time having our routinely Girl’s Day Out, and as always, I documented the whole day to share with you all in another episode of my Go Out With Me series. Let’s begin, shall we?


After a short visit to our local convenience store, we made a brief stop to Micheals, my favorite store to buy all things arts and crafts.

The best part about every visit to this artsy playground in particular is that there is color EVERYWHERE. As a person who loves bright and bold colors, I’m always searching through the aisles to see what’s new on the shelves. Everything is so exciting to look at that it almost makes me want to buy half of the store.

After a bit more band hunting, I finally found the Rainbow Loom aisle. And I was met with a color explosion . . . literally.

I actually started looming bracelets in Preschool. Then I stopped for a bit and made more advanced projects from 3rd-5th grade. After that, another break. And now I’m starting again. It’s kind of one of those phases that seems to come and go periodically.

However, considering that summer break is still far from over, resuming my looming hobby will surely help to spend some time.

Little did I know that Goodmommy had a sweet surprise in store for me; a snack from Panera Bread, which was conveniently just across from the strip mall in which Micheals was located.

The smell once we stepped inside was so fresh and airy, matching perfectly with the bakery atmosphere. At the front desk was a huge display of baked cookies, cupcakes, and other pastries. Next time we go, I’ll be sure to take a picture to give you guys a quick overview of their menu.

We ended up ordering a strawberry flower-shaped sugar cookie for me. I’ve loved them ever since I was a little girl, and they have been my usual whenever we go to Panera Bread.

Goodmommy ordered a cinnamon bun—which kind of surprised me, since she had never ordered it before—before she let me pick our seats, we prayed, and starting chowing down on our desserts, which happened to be my first meal of the day. Although that’s very rare for me, I wasn’t going to complain when I had my favorite cookie waiting to be eaten!

Eventually, my Goodmommy asked me if I wanted to try her large dessert. Although I agreed, I didn’t expect much of it taste wise, considering that my cookie had already satisfied my taste buds. But as soon as I took a bite . . . Panera Bread cinnamon buns easily became my favorites!

The cinnamon buns ended up being so shockingly good that we each had to get our own to bring home! Getting dessert like this is especially rare for us, as we only do it one to two times a year. However, we know that as long as you do so in moderation, eating a dessert every now and again doesn’t hurt.

As a quick review of all my purchases, I ended up getting a Rainbow Loom band Jumbo Bucket—filled with 8,000 rubber bands total—a 600 pack of white bands, and a pink hook with a metal tip to replace the plastic ones that I’d used for years.

Overall, the quality of everything was great—which makes sense, because Rainbow Loom is the best brand to buy items like this—and I got started on another project as soon as we got home and fed my betta fish, Peace.

Oh, and just in case you’re wondering what happened to our cinnamon rolls, they were gone within minutes after eating lunch.

P.S. You better watch out Cinnabon, because you’ve got some serious competition.


As any day with my Heavenly Father and Goodmommy , we had such an amazing time today, and I thank God that we were able to spend it as a family.

LET’S CHAT~Do you like desserts? If so, which one is your favorite?

Thank you so much for joining me today, and I will see y’all next time; peace in! ✨❤️✨

I got a gift for Easter…and I LOVE it!!! ♡

In my family, it is a tradition to get a gift basket (or other present) to celebrate Easter. And although it isn’t set in stone, Goodmommy is always so sweet to do something special for both of us to enjoy. Although I love spending Easter simply surrounded by family and friends while celebrating the Lord, I must admit that this was a really sweet surprise!

As soon as I saw this, I thought that it was so adorable. You can tell that Goodmommy truly knows me and my style–whenever we surprise one another with something, we are bound to love it.

This cute new kit comes with this HUGE ceramic rainbow that says “DREAM BIG” on top. I love to keep my room (and our house, in general) filled with positive and motivational messages, so that was a detail that I noticed and fell in love with immediately. There are a total of 6 small paint containers (although I must admit that it was a pretty good amount for the scale of the rainbow.) And to add some shiny finishing details are 4 gold stars and 29 diamond-like jewels.

Unlike most of these kits, I didn’t do many changes at all to the color scheme. All I did was tweak the pinks and the blue, and the rest was smooth sailing. Overall, the solid-color paints had amazing coverage. Although, considering that I did add some of my paints in the paint that came with the kit, I’m not sure how much I would’ve had left without them.

The glitter paint looks very translucent on the first coat, but with about 2 or 3 layers, the glitter actually sticks to the surface really well! This has got to be one of my favorite things that I’ve ever painted. The jewels make it feel so luxurious, too.

As you can see, my finished product looks almost exactly like the example on the box. Besides the color tweaks, I also switched the order of the colors of the rainbow and put the dark pink outside and the light pink on the top stripe instead of the other way around. Although they aren’t drastic differences, I think they were worth the extra effort.


Thank you all so much for going on this art journey with me! And never forget, the more you practice at anything that you want to achieve in life, the easier it will be and the more you’ll love it! As the rainbow says, “DREAM BIG!”

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! Peace in! ✨

I painted my own ceramic room decor … Pt. 2 ♡

Hey, everybody! So, some of you have probably seen my finished product of this adorable ceramic room decoration that I found last week. If not, I would recommend that you click this link to get the full story of how I found these, in the first place.

Just as a bit of a refresher, here is a picture of the two kits that I have used in this two-part series. Last time, I did the one of the right, therefore I’m going to be showing you guys what I did with the one on the left for this new short and sweet post.

At first glance, I was a little skeptical about the “diamond” shape of this decoration, just because it seemed like there wasn’t a lot of space to paint. But in the end, I actually really enjoyed that aspect of the piece. The more I looked at it, the more excited I got about rolling my sleeves up and painting it!

Just like the first kit, I used a surprisingly wide variety of colors to critique each of the paints in the kit. Though I must say that these had much better coverage than the paints from my last art project. The colors were just a bit dark, so I used colors slightly brighter than the original hues, as well as some white and/or cream to keep the neutral color scheme.

At some point, I had actually put some white polka dots on the light blue sections, but I didn’t like how it looked, so I covered them up with a few coats of paint. I might even add a few more, the next time I work with my acrylic paints for a bit of a touch up. However, for now, I’m really happy with what I’ve done. I think the color adjustments really paid off–they are popping!


Aaandd, that’s all for today, folks! I’ve really enjoyed customizing these decorations. Being able to really use my paints and experiment to see what looks best is such an enjoying and relaxing process. This is definitely not the last you’ll see of my art; I already have another idea, in mind.

Like always, if you enjoyed this post and want to read more of my daily content, please like this post and consider following my blog, if you haven’t already–all your support is a blessing!

Have a beautiful and blessed day! God bless y’all! ✨

I painted my own ceramic room decor … ♡

Hey, everybody! A couple of days ago, me and Goodmommy went to one of our go-to department stores. And it’s only natural for me to take a look at the dollar section. Whenever I know that we’re headed to this store in particular, I always make sure to carry some cash just in case I find a little treasure hiding in the playground of shelves.

And guess what? A couple of treasures we’re waiting for me~these ADORABLE ceramic hanging decor pieces that you can paint. They even come with a rope and tassels to add as decorations!

Any type of ‘arts and crafts’ item such as this (especially at a good price) tend to catch my eye. I’m always looking for opportunities to make a new creation. I especially love how each of these kits come with 3 paint colors and a little paintbrush, which is good if you want to add a few details.

This one has colors that are more on the “warm” spectrum. On the back of each packaging was an example of a possible end result, and I fell in love with the color scheme. I figured that the gold would really make the pink and the brown stand out. I’d never used gold paint before, so I was super excited to try it for the first time.
The square (or diamond-ish) shape of this second one is very interesting, to say the least. Although I don’t really like how the hole in the center limits the amount of painting space, I think it makes the piece unique. I love the little lines in between to help add some detail. And I think the light and dark blue paint will really compliment the configuration.

After I finished my schoolwork for the day, I asked Goodmommy if it was alright if I used one of the kits. Once she gave me the okay, I was pretty quick to get out my own acrylic paints, a couple of paper towels, a paper plate for mixing paints, a small bowl of water, and paintbrushes. And after that, the rest just came naturally. I’m really happy with the finished product~it’s a really cute addition to the rest of the pictures and artwork in my room.

What I really loved about this little project was the fact that it gave me lots of room to experiment. I tested out the paint in the kit, and it was really hard to get even coverage. Pretty typical of most cheap store-bought paints.

But I still really loved the colors and how they suited the shape so well, and I decided to mix in some of my acrylic paints with each color to get the brightness to my liking. The changes were subtle but noticeable, in real life. That means that I have a custom-mixed gold paint now, which will be very useful for my future works!

I love how the subtle tweaks made the colors look a little more saturated without taking away from the “vibe” of the whole thing, in the end. I also changed the placement of the colors, which I think added to the design, as well.


Overall, this entire experience was a lot of fun. And it resulted in a decoration that’s super pretty to look at. Now I can’t wait to use my second kit! If you enjoyed seeing my finished creation, please like this post and consider following my blog. If this post gets enough feedback, I might even show the output of the unused kit, which I am all up for!

Question of the Day: Have you ever customized a decoration? If you have, was it for a special occasion, or just because?

Thanks so much for stopping by, everybody! Have a great rest of your day! ♡
