How We Make the Money Honey!!!

Today we are linking up over at The Bargain Blonde.  She has an awesome blog so go over there!!!  She is having a link up right now on how people make a living outside of blogging etc.

As you may or may not know there are two of us!


Camie and I save lives everyday. Yep the world really does need us! Seriously.  We both work in the Radiology Department at a surgical hospital in Denton TX.

Camie is MRI tech and I (Kristin) am an Ultrasound Tech.  We met at work and became instant friends and started Twist of Dazzle that we run after work.

We take our jobs very seriously as you can tell in the pictures.




And if you haven’t had enough please enjoy the video

Hope you enjoyed! Please leave Camie a comment about her mad dancing skills!

Meet My Peeps!

So I think I will switch gears a little bit.  I (Kristin) have been out of commission with an injury.  So since I have about a thousand projects around the house started and NONE completed I will let you meet a few of my favorite peeps.  Today you get the pleasure of meeting my daughter Hannah.  Oh my sweet Hannah.  There are not enough words to describe Hannah.  She was born 10wks early and has been a handful since and we wouldn’t take her any other way. I will let the pictures tell most of the story.

This is how the last 12months have been around here with Hannah!


Hannah is the toughest girl I know! And through it all she does nothing but smile.  It has been a long hard year for her with harder diagnosis’. This is only some of the doctor visits she has had HA!

But she always bounces back!


Hannah just turned 16! We are so proud of her and she makes us laugh everyday.

Wow it has been a while, but we have sold our house and moved into our new one AND its livable.  I'm still decorating some rooms and getting things in place, but overall I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I will start a post soon about my new house, but I couldn’t wait to post about my NEW buffet that I redid this past weekend.  I am in LOVE.  This is my fourth dresser/buffet to re-do.  Post on the others:  Red Dresser, Living room buffet, Grey Dresser 

I bought this buffet off craigslist for $125 and I think it was totally worth it.  I love the detail on it.


I knew once we got moved, I would want to paint it, for some reason I think everything needs to be painted.  But I guess I just like color!!  I really wasn’t sure on what color to go with, but I was thinking something different that I haven't already done.  How about  Blue!   So I grabbed all the cans of Blue that I had,and tested them out.  (Maybe I should have gone with this look) Winking smile   But I decided on KRYLON Oxford Blue.


I only sanded the top because it was a little rough, and then sprayed Kilz over the entire piece.   Then I lightly sanded it over, blew the dust off with my vacuum and wiped it down real good with a damp rag.


And now it was ready to paint!   The paint was really strong, pretty sure I got the entire neighborhood high. Winking smile


It took 3 bottles of spray paint to get the buffet good and covered.

                                        Third Coat


After I finished the painting, I felt like this piece had good details that needed to be enhanced.  I took my little sander and went over the buffet,  That’s Better!  hi

I used  furniture wax and a cloth and went over the buffet to seal it and give it shine. (please wipe all the dust off first)  I put the black designs back on the front of  cabinets, but first I used it as a stencil for the inside drawers, for fun.  Turned out cute!!!


All finished and moved  inside to the formal dinning room. 



More coming soon, maybe a dinning room table and some chairs.  YUP that’s right!!!


Linking up!
