Happy Saturday!! & 2 Step Ring Holders

Hi hi!!! I know I’ve been a lousy blogger lately but I’ve been balancing school with a new job that’s 40 minutes from where I live (eek!) and it’s all been quite a lot. I didn’t get the chance to do any new projects SO I decided to document one from Christmastime! You’ll have to excuse the lighting, I haven’t quite figured out how to work out the shadows in the afternoon yet.

So without further ado, here it is!! I swear this is the simplest project in the whole world.


-Two colors of acrylic paint (choose colors that you like together)

-Paint brush (I found that the spongey ones work best for this)

-Small plates (I got mine from Goodwill in a pack of 4 for a dollar!)

-Small animal figurines (You can find these at Michael’s for $5 each, or better yet keep an eye out when you’re thrifting!)

-Lots and lots of news paper to keep down the mess!!

You can do the whole thing in two easy steps!

1. Paint!!! You’re going to want to do a couple or three layers on the animals as well as the plates. This is the messy part!

This is how mine turned out after two coats. If you’re using white, I would recommend more than just two coats because mine still looks a little thin. Wait for the paint to dry before moving on to the next step.

2. Glue!

Admittedly, I didn’t glue mine (shhh!). But with a little bit of hot glue or gorilla glue, viola! You’ve got yourself a ring holder.

Happy Weekend!

These last couple days have been a whirlwind for me! I’ve been fighting off the flu (ick!!!!!!), I went to an impromptu concert in Newport Beach, and… I LANDED A JOB IN SOCIAL MEDIA!

I am super stoked but also very exhausted and swamped with calls to make business listings and different media platforms to update. I didn’t even know there were this many sites for businesses on the entire internet! But I am so thrilled. This is a dream job!

Because of the job, I’ve been off the radar and I haven’t been doing any projects, so I have nothing new to post (tear!). I’ll get on it soon, I promise!



Introducing Me // 4-10-15

Let me just start out by saying that I am elated to be restarting the blog! If you followed me before you know that I had an account on Blogspot. I liked Blogspot for its user friendliness but it didn’t give me very much room to redesign or personalize anything (because I know absolutely zilch about HTML). I am also excited to start over with the actual blog posts (I will repost the old ones with more photos and cuteness)!

If you’re new here you’re probably wondering who I am and what this whole thing is about. I am not completely positive as to the answer to either of those questions but I will try my best to fill you in.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset     My name is Becca and I’m mostly active on Instagram (mylifestyle blog is new and it’s @brewingvodkatea and that’s more connected to the blog, but I also have a personal account which is @becburbuja). I’m sixteen years old and I live in San Diego, California. I love Jesus, cooking and all things pretty and bright! I love to paint and create music and those are my two biggest emotional outlets. My sister and I are moving up to Portland next year and working and attending Portland State University.

She is also a super talented photographer (she shoots weddings, portraits, family photos, events, etc.)! Her Instagram is @heymananda.

     Max (on the left in the photo above) is my best friend! He is so supportive of me always and I can rely on him to never laugh at me when I have stupid questions and to always hold me accountable when I’m in the wrong. Max, Amanda and I are quite the trio! I am beyond grateful for the silly adventures we have all the time. I can always count on them to cheer me up. @Smaxbuns on Instagram.


     Jianna (in the middle in the photo above) and Hephzi (Hep-see. On the right) are two of the most adorable, lovely people you could ever meet. They get the butt of my psychotic rants and weird moments. @Jiannaxxo and @hephzipepsi on Instagram.


     Abel James! He is my all time favorite human being. A few months after we started dating he moved to North Idaho where his family is from but our relationship has remained in a wonderful place and I absolutely, positively adore him. He is an artist and a real friend and the silliest guy there ever was. @mmotherr on Instagram.

     So that might have been a little more on my friends than myself, but you get the jist of my little world!

Goals of this blog:

-A space to document growth. I know this one is a little annoying sometimes, but I need a place to do this and I understand if you just skip over these ones!

-A space to document ideas and outcomes. I love to cook and create!

-A space to document my travels. I am always on my feet (or in a car, or on a train, or on a plane…)!

     That being said, here’s to the new blog space!
