Hello, my bucket list friends ! As you can tell by the the title of this post I crossed off my first bucket list item of 2020 ! It was pretty easy to cross off but I’m still very excited to tell you all about it. Here we go !
bucket list #227 Get a reversible sequin shirt
I love the reversible sequin trend ! I have seen this trend on pillows ,back packs and clothes . I really wanted to join in but most of the clothes that followed this trend were made for kids. I put it on my bucket list because I figured there just had to be a reversible sequin shirt in adult sizes somewhere. I turned to Amazon I figured it would be the best place to find what I was looking for. I found a few different styles to chose from. I ended up going with a pink shirt that had two cats on it. The cats are covered in sequins. ans they change colors when you move the sequins . I really like this shirt and I’m happy that I got it! Rock on – Christina Epperly

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Last Saturday was a really fun day. I spent it with two of my favorite people doing some of the things I enjoy most . Without further delay here we go !
One great day !
My great day started by waking up with my friend Amy all ready in the house. She had spent the night before and we had a good time watching movies until we got tired . Around noon with met a friend of mine in town. Then we all walked to a local thrift store. The thrift store closes pretty early in the day so we didn’t have much time there but we were able to find some pretty cool things. Both of my friends found a book or two and I got some books, a Barbie doll , a craft kit and a Disneyland zip up sweatshirt. As we were getting ready to get in line to pay, Amy saw the sweatshirt and knew I would love it. I quickly tired it on since it was a smaller size then I normally wear. I was so happy that it fit and was only a little tight. After that we headed to lunch at a restaurant that we all three enjoy. Lunch was awesome we knew the food there was good but it was also nice to just to sit down and talk for awhile. After that we went to another place that we all like to go to called Petroglyph. At this art studio you choose a ceramic piece to paint then pick it up later. All three of us chose animals to paint. I chose a duck and my friends chose a porcupine and a turtle. We had a good time choosing paint for our creations and painting them. Everyone’s creation turned out beautiful if you ask me! We had had two more stops before we called it a day , a coffee shop and the candy store ! Which I think is a perfect way to end a fun filled day ! So, there you have it my great day ! I hope all of you are having great days as well. Rock On – Christina Epperly
Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’m back at it with the craft kits . This time I did Valentine’s day craft kits in celebration of the holiday ! Here we go!
Valentine’s day arts and crafts
Valentine’s day necklace kit – I got this kit at Michael’s and I thought that it was pretty unique! It came with fun Valentine’s day beads, string and two pieces of plastic to use as a clasp for the necklace. I had a fun time putting the beads on the string .I couldn’t figure out how to get the clasp to work correctly so I just tied the necklace the old fashioned way. It worked great and it was pretty easy to slip it on over my head . I would recommend this craft kit.
Cat pillow – At Target I got very simple but very cute craft kit . It came with a very cute cat pillow and some markers. I don’t think that the markers were fabric markers but they worked really well. It was easy ,fun and relaxing to color the little cat. I hope I get to do more craft kits like this !
Ceramic LOVE painting – This kit was a simple painting kit. It came with a ceramic love sculpture ,a paint brush and three colors of paint. I liked the way the letters popped out from the background of the sculpture. I really enjoyed painting this sculpture and I was happy with the way it turned out.

Hello, my bucket list friends ! One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to go thrift shopping. Recently I got to go thrift shopping two days in a row and I can’t wait to tell you about the things I found . Here we go !
Two days of thrift shopping !
On Friday my friend and I went to a Good Will that is pretty new. I’ve heard it also the biggest Good Will in our area. I have been to this location before and I really like how clean and organized it is. I went looking for craft kits first and I found this really cute craft kit where you make animal faces from paper plates and stickers I haven’t done this kit yet but I’m looking forward to it. I also got an American Girl book, a Disneyland picture frame, some very cute PJ pants and more. On Saturday I worked early and got off in the afternoon. When my mom picked me up I asked her if we could go to the Goodwill that is a few miles down the road from my work. I have also been to this location before. I’m super excited to tell you that I found something really cool at this thrift store. When I was looking in the toy section I was so thrilled to see a Lisa Frank Game that I had as a kid. It’s a fishing style game where you use magnets to collect as many Lisa Frank characters as you can before the timer runs out. The box was still in plastic so I knew that it was a complete set. I also found a Disney World shot glass from 2000 and a American Girl book. I was very happy with my two days of thrift shopping and I hope to do it again sometime. Rock On – Christina Epperly
Hello, my bucket list friends ! Arts and crafts kit have become one of my favorite hobbies and I recently finished doing another one . I can’t wait to tell you all about it so here we go!
Bobble Head Craft Kit
I was looking through my arts and craft supplies to find a project to complete. I had forgotten about this very cute dog and cat bobble head kit that I had gotten at a local party supply store. I was excited when I saw it and I knew that it was just the project I was looking for. The kit had two bobble heads and few items to decorate them with including a marker ,paint and bows! I started decorating the cat first I glued a cute pink pink bow on the cat’s head and then I painted dot’s on her body. For the dog I glued a rose on her head and I covered her with paint . I used the yellow and orange paint on both of the bobble heads. I really liked they way both of them turned out! They are super cute ! I would love to do another kit like this sometime.
