My First Youtube Video….

So I uploaded my VERY FIRST YouTube video… and I have to say it wasn’t easy. The video editor I’m using is easy to use, I just havent mastered it yet. I’m new to all of this! I also didn’t realize that there would be a “free trail” in green at the top of the video for the first few seconds, hahaha. Guess I will be buying this program soon. I alr…eady can see where I need improvement in my videos, but here you go anyway…

My very first YouTube video

Then on my birthday Jay got some goodies for our bathroom. We have been looking for a shelf but couldn’t seem to find one. He found one at Target, which is a favorite place. He also got me slippers and a bath pillow. Believe it or not those slippers keep my feet really warm.

Hoo are You, Tuesdays?

Hoo are You #5

1. What is your favorite restaurant?   

This one is hard because we do not eat out a lot, but if I had to pick one place it would be Taco’s and Tequila. This is the first stop when we arrive in Las  Vegas.


2. What kind of music do you like?

I like it all. Mostly country but currently I’m stuck on 80’s music.


3. What do you watch on TV?

I have two nights that I watch TV, Sundays – Walking Dead and Thursday – Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal


4. Do you enjoy reading and if so what kind of  books do you read?

I do enjoy reading it’s what puts me to sleep at night. Currently I’m ready “Beautiful Creatures – Kami Garcia” I love anything that captures me in the first two pages.


5. What is your favorite color?

          Green, even though my mother swears its purple.


My Subscriptions

I recently signed up for three monthly subscriptions., these can be addicting. I used google search and YouTube for reviews. To really what people got every month.  One Blog/website I used a lot was My Subscription addiction she does a really good job showing us the product, descriptions and normal price if you were to purchase full size. She also has a coupon-code sections for current promo to subscribe to monthly boxes. I would love to subscribe to most of the ones she does but I don’t have the funds to. insert sad face 😦  So after a week or so of debating on which boxes to get these are the two I plan on keeping.



Ipsy is monthly at $10.00 a month. It will consist of hair and makeup products.

Paper Pumpkin is $19.99 a month this includes shipping. This is a craft project, the first one officialy will be sent out in March and will consist of all elements to make 4-5 cards. They include everything but the adhesive.

Now the subscriptions I just signed up to get the month for a penny was Julep I just can’t see paying $19.99 for random nail polish, I would have considered it if it was different brands of nail polish. This is strictly Julep brand that I know nothing about. So this will be my first and final month. I sure do hope they don’t get mad. I did try to purchase other items when I ordered my first month but their website would not allow it.

I would like to find some other reasonable monthly boxes but they seem to not exist. I will be posting box reveal videos and what I think of the items before and after I use them. I was thinking of even doing a tutorial with the Paper Pumkin. We shall see.

Good Night!

Oh!! My YouTube Channel is NenaSays

still learning how to link the page…. if anyone knows please let me know.


Art Journal

I join in on this years Art Journal with “A Year in the Life of an Art Journal

Every Monday you take a photo of your Mug, and then you incorporate it into your art journal. The goal is to complete a coffee table art journal you can display.  They have prompts every 15th and 30th of the month, everyone art journal differently. Some love prompts, Shooters (camera journalers –is that even a and Bookers (people who just use mix media). I personal going to do all if possible on each of my pages, I’m new to art journaling and need all the prompts inspirations ideas I can get. I’m super excited about this year, so far I have set my schedule for craft projects, scrapbooking, Art journaling and organizing.

Courage - Art Journal

One word for my year is COURAGE!!

Yes, I am the oldest out of the ones I grew up with. I have three brothers and two sisters. I have an older brother but the last time I seen him was when I was two. His mother gave him up for adoptions. I have thought about looking for him but honestly I don’t know where to start or if I could even muster the courage to ask my Bio dad information regarding him.

2. Do you have any children?

Yes, I have three children ages 16, 15, and 9.

I’m both just depends on what it is.

5. What is your typical 4th of July like? Laid back at home? Community celebrations? etc…?

Our Fourth of July is block party, lots a people, lots of firer works, lots of drinking and tons of food.



Started the Art Journal tonight.. well really just getting things together. I have thought about join in the one word project but really don’t know which word to choose. So far is FLY, COURAGE, or MOVE ON (even though this is two words). I will choose by this weekend. Maybe or maybe not… I wish there was a word to use so I could stop being UNDESISIVE.
