Back In My Day – April 2, 2018

When I think back to how things use to be when I was growing up (or even in my young adulthood) it amazes me on how different things are today.  Do you remember the “VCR”…  virtually extinct in todays society.

Now all you have to do, to see a movie is just pull out your phone or tablet and it’s all just a few clicks away.  You don’t even have to be home to watch a movie.  Speaking of which, “Video Stores” are all but extinct themselves.

Upcycle – Cookie Sheet Magnetic Board

could get one from a thrift store. would never cook with something from a thrift store but im okay with using something for a craft:

Isn’t this just a great idea.  Which one of us doesn’t have an old cookie sheet?  Or even can pick one up at the thrift store, or dollar store.  I love putting stuff up on my fridge but let’s be honest, this one can be used in almost any room or office.

Pillowcase Garmet Bag – DIY

What a great and easy idea!  Just cut a small slit for the hanger and done.  No need to run out to the store and spend money on a Garmet Bag.  This little trick is handy in a pinch and a great way to Upcycle some of your older (perhaps not your favorite) cases.

Next time you are at the thrift store or see a great sale on some pillowcases.  Pick up a few.  Unlike the plastic garmet bags, these you can wash and reuse as needed.

Free Hair Cuts

Master Cuts Surviving Life Blog Photo

Every few years I take a day to find a Salon who participates in the Locks of Love program and I donate my hair.  They in turn provide you with a free hair cut (after cutting off the section of hair that is to be donated).  Not all Salons participate in this beautiful worth while endeavor.

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. The prostheses they provide help to restore children’s self-esteem and confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Today I decided it was my day to donate my hair.  I called and found a Salon that participated in the Locks of Love program.  It was “Master Cuts” in the McKinley Mall.  The ladies in the salon were so great.  The attitude was fun and upbeat and they treat you with the upmost respect.  It is a place I would recommend, not only due to their generous nature in providing free hair cuts for such a wonderful cause but also for they great work.

Please call around and find a participating Salon near you if you decide to give the gift of hair to a worthy cause.

About Me

Wife, Mother, Photographer

Dee Sanchez – Dee’s Digital Delight

Thank you for stopping by today. I love that your as curious about me as you are about my photography, art, and blog.

Years ago, I don’t quite recollect when, I watched as a family member worked on some photography. I always loved looking at pictures and finding out the story behind some of them. Anywho, my curiosity was peaked. Curiosity turned into a hobby and a hobby turned into a passion.  My personal goal is to photo document my life.

I’m mostly self taught and love shooting what catches my eyes and peaks my interests.  Some of my work remain relatively unchanged, others are turned into digital works of art. Please feel free to browse through my blog, and check out the links to my website and various social media pages, see if there is anything that peaks your interest. I love sharing my photos, and knowledge of whatnots that I come about in my daily life.

I would love to know what you think so please feel free to leave your comments here or throughout  the blog.

Have a Happy & Blessed Day
