I have found instructions for Chocolate, Chocolate Mint and Chocolate Caramel, but can you believe it - No Chocolate Raspberry – It sounds divine!
I began my infusion last evening; most instructions say it can take between two weeks to a month to fully infuse the chocolate flavor. Since the party is on the 24th, I hope this finishes in time. So lets start with the chocolate process (part two will go into the raspberry process)
I decided on the Cocoa Powder route, though you can use cocoa beans.
For every 750 ml of vodka you put in 1 cup of cocoa powder. Stir or shake to combine.
Place container in a cool, dark area. Each week shake it again. Look at it less than 12 hours later, such a neat separation of ingredients.
I can't wait to begin the taste testing. Just in case this doesn't work, I am making a back up flavor - Blueberry vanilla - if I have two one is bound to turn out right? Now I still need to decide on the prizes - - -

This was a spur of the moment craft and for once I remembered to grab my camera and take pictures, so here we go.

My sweet little girl started summer school this year, a getting ready for kindergarten class for 5-year-old's. She is handling it like a champ - when I take her to school at the big kid school (summer school is in our middle school building) all I get from her is a quick peck on the lips and she sits down to do her work. Not even giving me my moment to fuss and cry over her. I am so proud. Then she gets to ride on the bus all by herself to daycare. She even reminds the teacher she needs to be on bus 'E' so she gets to the correct place. Yep she is ready for kindergarten.
So know I am hoping my life becomes a more controlled environment, starting summer hours at work means I get half days on Friday. Which is nice to have because that gives me time to take some of the strain and running around from Saturday and Sunday that I always have to do. Finally I am planning and prepping a lot of fun things to do for Halloween - starting my list of supplies I need to make some new decorations this year, and I really can't wait for apple picking!

Plus it is subtle and doesn't weigh down my hair and is easy to remove.
You can keep the hair accessory to a certain theme or just have a random design.
Don't forget string of sorts, if you want to have it to just showcase the beads, I have found that fishing line works the best, but you can also use embroidery floss and braid it at times to have some colors show through. It is entirely up to you.
My finished project is shown below - fun and simple, you can change it up to fit your outfit, color coordinate or just have some random fun in your hair.
Thanks for visiting!
