Writing Inspiration #5: My Strongest Memory (The Pickle That Almost Ruined My Marriage)

Vintage Storehouse & Co. Writing Prompt: My Strongest Memory

I was traumatized. My heart was beating out of my chest, sweat dripping off my face. I wanted to move, but I just couldn’t convince my body to do what my brain was asking of it.

Outside the car stood a man. The man was quiet, but his face showed his anger. It was boiling inside him like hot lava ready to burst out of a volcano.

Writing Inspiration #3: I Like Animals

Vintage Storehouse Writing Prompt: I like animals - Jack Russell Terrier Dog

I have always loved animals. Not liked, but LOVED. I have a sweet spot for dogs, but I honestly believe that every creature on earth is special in it’s own way.

Growing up I always had pets. Whether it be dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, or ferrets, there was always something and I loved spending time with all of them. As I got older I gained an even greater appreciation for life and the lives of animals. My parents divorced when I was a teenager and of course I immediately asked my dad for a puppy. He had a hard time saying no to me before the divorce, so how was he going to say no to me now.  [Read more…]

Nail Art Inspiration – Yellow Lace

Nail Stamp Design by Vintage Storehouse & Co. | Yellow & White Lace using Born Pretty Store Lace Plate and MoYou London Frenchy Plate

I have a love affair with nails. I have always loved painting my nails, but I recently discovered the art of Nail Stamping and my passion was reignited. For those of you who have never heard of this Nail Stamping thing, I’ll give you a short explanation… Basically you paint your nails as normal (you can use gel, acrylic, or regular polish), but before you put on your top coat, you can stamp a design onto them (picture scrapbook stamping – but slightly different). You use these engraved plates with the design on them, put a small amount of polish over the design and scrape off the excess. Then you use a rubber “stamp” to pick up the remaining polish and transfer it to your fingernail. Then you put a top coat over it and your done. [Read more…]

Writing Inspiration #1: The Meaning of Freedom

Vintage Storehouse & Co. The Meaning of Freedom Writing Prompt

As I get older, the meaning of freedom is a question I am continuously reassessing. When you’re young, you are, in a sense, “blind” to reality. You’re reality is that which your caretakers present to you. It’s like one gigantic magic trick. But as you get older, the veil slowly falls and, if you’re anything like me, concepts like freedom, that seemed so simple, become more and more complex.  [Read more…]

Simple & Silly April Fools Day Pranks

Simple & Silly April Fools Day Pranks {Double Stick Tape on Everything} | Vintage Storehouse & Co. | This is a great prank to either play in someones office or bathroom. Use double stick tape to tape everything they usually use that day to their desk or counter. I like to put it on my husbands computer mouse, pen and note pad. But you could also put it on your kids tooth paste, soap and hair brush! Then watch them try to figure out why it won't move when they go to use it.

April Fools Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. I’ve never been into making anyone eat anything gross, or playing pranks that take more than 5 minutes to clean up. I just like doing the simple pranks that get someones blood boiling for a few seconds before they realize that its a prank! The last few years that I’ve been married, April Fools has just slipped by, and I haven’t had a chance to play any pranks on my husband. But this year, I’ve been extremely excited to play a few of my favorite April Fools Day pranks on his unsuspecting mind! 🙂
