Frozen Hairstyles of Elsa and Anna

Okay, I’m kind of terrible at styling hair, but these how-to pictures got me pretty excited.

I think I might be able to at least manage Elsa’s braid.

Anyway, the pics were shared by Zulily, who is having a sale on Frozen items starting today.  And my little girls LOVE to play dress up, so I’m pretty excited about all the outfits.  Click here to get up to 60% off of Disney’s Frozen products!  (This is an affiliate link – I’ll get some compensation if you purchase something, so many thanks in advance!)

Feeling the Heat

Me on a hot day funny dog in fridge

Me on a hot day?

Yeah.  Pretty much.

I know they’ve got some “dry” heat going on over in the west, but when the Floridian humidity sticks to you, sometimes the only way to get relief is to attempt to encase yourself in the freezer.

Thanks to The Chive for the photo.

And be sure to follow me on Facebook at Roaming Rosie Remix to get glimpses of my deranged, and occasionally grammatically correct, sense of humor!

“Nevermore Awesome” Edgar Allan Poe Shop

Nevermore Awesome Edgar Allan Poe Store

My latest Zazzle venture is a store with an Edgar Allan Poe theme.

It’s a lot of fun for me to make these designs.  I always liked Poe, but I really fell in love with him in college.

Anyway, the store itself, like all my Zazzle stores, features t-shirts, mugs, keychains, cell phone cases, and all manner of gifts, from journals to toothbrush holders.

Check it out by clicking:  www.Zazzle.com/Nevermore_Awesome or the photo above.

I’d Rather Be Reading

I'd Rather Be Reading T-Shirt

I’d rather be reading.

Really.

This is pretty much how I feel most of the day.

Except when I’m already reading.

And since I’m not the only bibliophile in the world, this is the newest sentiment that I’ve added to one of my Zazzle stores.

For example, here are a ring and a charm bracelet featuring the new design:

I'd Rather Be Reading Ring

I'd Rather Be Reading Charm Bracelet

 

Of course, there are also t-shirts, coffee mugs, cell phone cases, and the like, all decorated with this saying.  Heck, you can find everything from pendant lamps to pacifiers in this design.

Check it all out at my I’d Rather Be Reading Zazzle Store.

Enjoy!

If you need me, I’ll be … well, you know.

Funny Cat Penance

It’s been well over 2 weeks since I’ve posted on my blog.

It’s amazing how life can become overwhelming sometimes, and how even something like this blog, which is a positive creative outlet in my life, can take a backseat to things like sleep.

Or collapsing into an unconscious state at my kids’ bedtime.

Either way.

Point is:  I’ve been neglecting you.

As penance, I shall now post a funny cat video in honor of the Internet Spirits.

This one makes me laugh every time.  :)

Molesting Alligators

DO NOT MOLEST OR FEED ALLIGATORS

This is a sign near a park we visit.

The playground is fenced in, so I don’t worry about alligators wandering around where my children are playing.

I am, however, a bit concerned about the idiots that inspired the need for the sign.

Rabbit Ears Writing Desk

rabbit ears writing desk

I’ve been creating a lot of rooms on Polyvore lately.  It’s a bit addicting.  Like creating a room or a wedding on Pinterest.

Anyway, this room (or vignette) features a writing desk and writer’s tools – a typewriter and coffee.  And an adorable T-Rex desk organizer.  Can’t forget that.  :)

I chose the modern walnut desk and chair to reflect the color of the bunny in the Rabbit Ears poster.  Because all of us writers are constantly searching for a place with the perfect reception from our writing gods.  Or daemons.

The rest of the posters are of a typology or logophile nature.  Throw in a few more fun accents and there you have it.

What do you think?  Could you write the next great American novel here?

“Make Your Own” Custom Chocolate Bars

Create Your Own Chocolate Bar from 3 Types of Chocolate and Over 100 Toppings!

Today, I discovered custom chocolate bars.

That’s right:  make your own Belgian chocolate bars by mixing and matching 3 types of chocolate and over 100 toppings.

I believe that “Sweet!” would be an appropriate response to this.  {Pun fully intended.}

Create Your Own Chocolate Bar from 3 Types of Chocolate and Over 100 Toppings!

Anywho, the combinations are endless, which I love.

You can add up to 5 toppings to make “recipes,” like Peanut Butter Jelly Time Chocolate Bar which includes a milk chocolate base and toppings of dried strawberries, butter toasted peanuts, peanut butter drops, and gushers.

Heck, you can even go the extra mile and add a “Congratulations” plaque and a candle.

Create Your Own Chocolate Bar from 3 Types of Chocolate and Over 100 Toppings!

Some of the ingredients which most intrigue my taste buds include:

Diced Ginger
Himalayan Sea salt
Pumpkin Spice
Dried Raspberries
Nerds
Sour Patch Kids
Cookie Dough
Pop Rocks
23 Karat Gold Flakes
Crystallized Violet Petals
Bacon
Monkey Munch

The list goes on…

Create Your Own Chocolate Bar from 3 Types of Chocolate and Over 100 Toppings!

And I mean, seriously, does anyone really NOT know someone who wouldn’t want a pumpkin spice chocolate bar?

I’m thinking that I’d love to try the dark chocolate base topped with violet petals and gold flakes.

What about you?  What would you try?  What would you craft as a gift for a loved one?

Let me know!  (And don’t forget to check out all the ingredients for the Create Your Own Chocolate Bar on Zazzle!)

The Neutral Newlyweds

neutral newlyweds

The Neutral Newlyweds is a Polyvore set that I created around some matching pillows from one of my Zazzle stores:

His & Hers Pillows “His”

His & Hers Pillows “Hers”

I always liked these pillows because they were sleek and understated, but still fun.

They nicely accent other neutrals, so I surrounded them with elegant furnishings in brown, white, and silver.

I’d love to hear your feedback!

Words of Wisdom Art

Awhile back I came across this picture on Pinterest:

i am made of shattered stars

I followed to a page selling art (get it here) and discovered that it was a quote from Alexandra Franzen.

Curious, I visited her blog, and have been following her ever since.

She has a way with words that I find to be continually inspiring.

And today I just wanted to share some Franzen-inspired artwork by Kent Youngstrom.  He has a whole series based on the way Alexandra puts words together.  These are my favorites:

less talking more ing

what are you building

let's do something stupid

You can find the rest of the Words of Wisdom art at Gilt.

Now, go build something.  :)
