Let's Talk Crocs

If you're anything like me, when you think of Crocs you get feelings. Perhaps they are a result of people like Mario Batali wearing them the way Mario Batali wears them (Whaaaaaat????). So, when Sam and I received an offer from the lovely people at Crocs to pick out a pair of shoes for each member of our families for #Croctober I was skeptical. I wondered, is there anything on their site that a person who doesn't wear cargo shorts and socks with their sandals can wear? 

However, in spite of my previous judgments I am here to testify that I was wrong about Crocs. So very, very wrong. I have since seen the light and changed my ways and am ready to shout from the rooftops that I am a Crocs fan. Wanna see why? Just look at how CUTE the shoes they sent us turned out to be! And there was something for the whole fam. AND they are so well made. ANNND so comfy. Just so freaking comfy. Ok, I'll stop talking to you can look. 

I love them. I love them all. Days before this picture was taken my son wore the heck out of those boots, jumping in puddles and falling down on concrete 500 times and those boots still look brand new. The pair I chose is so cozy and comfy I could sleep in those suckers or hike Everest. (Obvi I'll be sleeping in them and not hiking anywhere ever, but I'm trying to paint a picture of comfort+functionality here so go with me.) I mean it. I'm a believer. 

Still don't believe me? Well, one lucky PLG reader is going to get the chance to win a pair of Crocs later this week and the winner will be converted FOR SURE. So get to repenting of your pre-conceived-Croc-notions and get ready to look freaking cute this winter!

PLG DIY: Upcycled Dollar Store Skulls

Last week I found my kids Halloween costumes and that sort of thing can really get a girl's festive juices flowing so I have taken to Halloween decorating full force at my house. One of my favorite crafts came after visiting my local dollar store where I found these plastic skulls and it was clear, the DIY possibilities with these suckers were endless! So I picked up a bunch and here's what I did with them: 

What you need:
-Hollow, plastic, skulls (I found mine at DollarTree)
-A good pair of scissors or a razor blade that can cut through thin plastic
-Spray paint

1. First, cut a hole in the skulls you plan to use as vases or holders. You'll want to cut them before you spray paint them or else you will ruin your paint job trying to hack through that plastic.

2. Next, paint! I used three kinds of spray paint for my skulls, a glossy white, a gold metallic, and a chalkboard black. I found all of my spray paints at Walmart.

3. Once your skull are painted there is so much you can do with them! Fill them will candy! Sit them all around your house on pedestals! Or you can do what I did: 

Skull Vases: First, I filled a couple with fresh flowers! All I had to do for this was fill in a small hole at the bottom of the skull with a little hot glue so that they could hold water. Then I was able to easily fill them with water and put in the flowers. 

Chalkboard Skulls: With these skulls I chose not to cut holes in the top and just display them as is. I also picked up two glass candle sticks from the dollar store, spray painted them the same color, and glue gunned them together! So fun to draw on and spoooooky!

Gold Candle Holder: Lastly, I cut a hold big enough for a large candle that I also picked up from the dollar store! This one ould not have been easier. Cut hole, put in candle. BAM. Halloween glam. 

That's it! For just a couple of dollars you have now made your house spooky and fabulous! 
Happy Halloween crafting!
