DIY Glitter/Snow Globe!+ Get to know more about me!

So, I’m going to save best for last so I will do the get to know more about me tag later but, for now.. I need to do a craft because I haven’t done one yet and the entire point of my blog is to expand people’s knowledge on crafts. Bottom line, I am going to show you how to make a DIY Glitter/Snow Globe.

MATERIALS:

  • A jar (for example, a Mason Jar)
  • Glitter/Fake snow powder (you can also just use white or transparent colored glitter to make it look like snow, this is what I recommend)
  • A small structure to go inside the jar (a small toy will do but, you can also go out and buy some small structure. Make sure it is a hard structure so that we will be able to glue the structure to the jar.
  • Distilled Water (normal water is also usable but, I highly recommend distilled water)
  • OPTIONAL: Small Decor (ribbon, jewels etc.)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Open mason jar and set the glass part of the jar aside and put the lid in front of you.
  2. Flip the lid over so that it looks like a tray (the top of the lid should be backing down)
  3. Take your small structure and put glue on the bottom part of it (for example, if it’s an animal then put glue on the bottom of it’s legs)
  4. Take the structure and place it onto the jar’s lid. Make sure it is centered and where you want it to be. I recommend putting it on a raised platform to see it clearly. To do this you can simply take some clay and mold it, used a lego or use the lid of another smaller jar. Make sure the platform is hard.
  5. Put the lid aside to dry, I recommend one or two hours but, it really depends on your glue.
  6. Once the glue has dried, test it to make sure it won’t fall off by giving it a small and gentle push
  7. Next, take the jar and fill it with your water all the way to the top
  8. Add as much glitter/snow as you would like but, make sure you do not over do it. I recommend a 2:1 ration for the water to glitter/snow
  9. Add glue to the part of the jar where the lid screws on and quickly screw on the lid. This will ensure no leaks and it will make sure the lid won’t be able to be screwed off.
  10. Lastly, add some decor to the lid by adding a ribbon and you’re done

Now isn’t this great! We have finally finished the DIY! My first DIY that is. The best DIY in the world!

This can be given during any occasion because you are able to choose the structure inside which is what shows your peers what the globe is about. It’s the center of attention, like I always am ;)! *Flips hair* Just kidding!

I find it important to value yourself so you know what to do at the right times.

It’s my BIRTHDAY *flips hair*

So, today I decided to get out of bed early and I was taking off my blanket and stepping down. I make it to the floor. I walk but, then I just had to not watch where I was going. I jam my toe into the side of my wooden bed. I tumbled onto the floor in pain. I looked at my toe which was perfectly fine except it was a little red. Small injuries like these matter. THEY REALLY HURT! I decide to get back up and continue with my day.

Quote Discussion #1: A True Friend (like me) *flips hair*

Have you ever had that one good friend? I hope so! (I will also be your true friend by the way-if you want me to ) A true friend doesn’t have to be your bestie, BFF or BFFL (I remember when I was in 3rd grade I used to use those terms a lot- I don’t know why-don’t judge) *flips hair*

So, back on topic… I was going to talk about this quote. It states that true friends aren’t about being inseparable. Now, don’t get confused! *flips hair* (i’m always confused if you don’t know by the way so, I don’t blame you) They are intending to tell you that being a true friend isn’t about being physically inseparable.

Many times, you may not be able to say with your friend forever, you may have to go a different route because of having to move away, move schools, move or change jobs and maybe even other personal causes. *tear* 

The second portion of this quote says that even when you are physically separate, nothing changes. It means that distance shouldn’t matter, you should talk and be friends at any cost. No matter your physical distance, your metal distance should stay the same, this is true friendship.

Ok, I can’t make this post so boring, I need to help you sweet people! I will explain to you, what makes a good quote step by step and each and everything you need to know. *flips hair* (cause I’m smart fam! Just Kidding 😂) 

HOW TO MAKE A GOOD QUOTE:

(in five steps) *flips hair*

1.Pick a topic that you like (friendship, relationship, love, life etc.) When you do this, try to be as precise as possible. For example, you can either choose (in the relationship category) how to have a good relationship or what to do in a relationship. The topic should be personally appealing. *flips hair* (I know what you are thinking, why did I flip my hair, the answer is: I don’t know). If you have personal experience with that topic, it’s even better! Just make sure you are connected to that topic, have a lot of information about it and have at  least a little bit of experience with it.

Image result for expert with sunglasses gif2. Figure out what you are intending to say. What message are you trying to portray to your audience and what ages will your audience be? Will they be kids, teens or adults. This will help you figure out the types of words you want to use (you don’t want to use big words with small children) and you also what to know if the quote will be appropriate for that age group. You wouldn’t want to be talking about love with 5 year olds! 😂

3. Articulate the message. Use words that really stand out. For this step, you may want to use a Thesaurus. Instead of saying nice you can say incredible or wonderful. Use similes and metaphors to make it easier and fun to read! (like my blog! I’m just kidding😂) *flips hair* Don’t go too over the top though (just like I go too over the top with flipping my hair) *flips hair* The phrase should be short and meaningful. Many people (including the lazy me) don’t want to go through and read a long message. Bottom line, it should be short, simple, self-explanatory and easy to paint an image of.

4. Make it personal for all. From the first step, you know that you should personally connect to it. But, you should keep in mind that the quote should be appealing to not only you but, your audience as well because that who you are making the quote for! They should be able to relate in some way.

5. Lastly, make sure you are happy and revise it once or twice and you’re done!Image result for expert gifTWO IMPORTANT THINGS:
