How to Make Sports Inspired Drinking Glasses




Here it is guys! My first video in my first ever web series. Initially I was going to do a series of videos on one subject, but after REALLY thinking about it I decided to just go with what I know best and that is how to make stuff! I love crafting and thought a series of crafting and how to videos would be a ton of fun and every week I plan to load a new video of a craft I've done and show you how you can make it too! This also helps me with one of my tasks for my 101 in 1001 challenge! So, without further adieu...check out my video for How to Make Sports Inspired Drinking Glasses

You can check out all of the videos I've loaded on Youtube HERE!! 

WikiHow's How to Get Famous

In an effort to become the Famous Ashley Grant I've started reading articles about how to get famous and happened upon How to Become Famous in 5 Steps from Wikihow.

Oddly enough the 5 steps are not written items 1 through 5 but upon further review there are in fact 5 steps listed:

1. Understand that there is more than one way to become famous. This is my favorite tip! They even give ideas of ways to become famous. Unfortunately I'm not sure which ones will work for me...

    • Write a best-selling novel. -Working on it, but I'm thinking eBooks will be my actual path to being a best seller 

    • Perform a popular song. - Nah, I may have won a singing contest at Wal-Mart, but I highly doubt this will actually get me famous. Although, I reckon I could try it and throw it on Youtube...anything is possible I suppose. 

    • Become an actor. - Easier said then done. I don't even know where to begin in terms of finding a place to audition. Again, I think I'll just attempt a few Youtube videos.
    • Invent something useful. - But I'm not that smart!!
    • Become a model. - They said I'm too short. LOL Runway models start at 5'7" and I'm only 5'4.5"
    • Start a successful business. - If I had a successful business I would just travel and forget about fame and don't you have to have a level of fame to get success??
    • Do something heroic.- Like what?!? I can't fly, I can't breathe underwater, I don't have x-ray vision and last time I checked I can't lift more than 50 pounds without squinting. What makes a hero?
    • Become an elected official. - Oh HELL no. Too many skeletons in my closet to attempt being an elected official. I prefer being allowed to drink, dance, gamble and make out with my spouse in public thank you.
    • Excel at professional sports. - Nope! Not gonna happen. Not now, not ever! I can't catch a ball even if you are standing right next to me
    • Marry someone already famous- I'll have to check with my current husband in regards to how he feels about this. My guess is he will not be okay with this considering he loves me and I love him...
      2. Make sure that becoming famous is your ultimate dream. DUH! Of course it is!
      3. Do something inspirational so others can look up to you.
      4. Build upon one of the four techniques above to apply it in your desired field of fame.The four techniques they are referring to are from item #3 which they actually call item 1 under the subhead "Be Unique"
      5. Put yourself out there. This is my second favorite tip. I put out, er I mean I put myself out there whenever I can. ;)

      101 in 1001: Read 100 Books

      pile of books

      One of the posts I created recently was called 101 in 1001 and it basically was 101 things I want to accomplish in 1001 days. The 101 in 1001 idea was found on Pinterest and I decided I wanted to try it for myself. One of the items on the list was to read 100 books or eBooks. I've started reading my 100 books and here's the list of books read as of 7/17/12:

      Post Vacation Laundry

      How is it that my clothes in my suitcase seem to have doubled since going on vacation? I knew I would have a bunch of laundry to do since I snagged some clothes at a thrift store but sheesh!!! I had no clue I would have THIS MUCH!!! Luckily my mom's dog (was my dog before I moved out) came over to visit and help me with the task! :)

      Moonshine!

      Moonshine is illegal to make but a company has made it in a fashion that the state deems legal. Apparently if you make your moonshine in a factory instead of your barn and allow the state to put a tax on it then it's legal to have and drink...so...now I will get to try moonshine!

      My First Time @ An Estate Sale

      Welp, my first day of "vacation" and we got up real early to go to my first ever estate sale. I've been to yard sales but I have never seen anything quite like this. It is definitely intense. We pulled up 10 minutes after it started and there was already a line of cars and a whole mess of people waiting to scoop up any deals they could! Wow!
