DIY : April Banner

I stopped by Target value section and purchased a linen banner, gold, glitter and white letters. I spent $4 total!

The gold glitter letters were a bit messy for this project. (save them for another project)

Armed with jute twine, scissors and white glue I began assembling my April banner!


I really liked how it turned out!

Walmart: My Life SchoolHouse Doll

Earlier this year, I spoke about My Life African American Schoolgirl doll, from Walmart, after reading about her in Essence magazine. I loved that she had a natural hairstyle, eyeglasses, and beautiful dark brown skin. She would make a wicked nice surprise for our oldest granddaughter!

Well, we finally got around to purchasing her this weekend! We also purchased her salon chair.




It's safe to say Nevaeh is going to love her!

Today's Message: Love You!

Today's message: "Love and embrace the body you have"! positive #bodyimage



It has taken me a very long time to get to a good place! A place of peace. A place of acceptance. It truly feels so good after many decades of self-hate.

I'm glad I hung in there. Thank you to my family, Heavenly Father and many others for being in my life!

Love You Guys!
