Guest Post: Maggie from The Hell on Heels Housewife

Hi! My name is Maggie and I am the head gal over at The Hell on Heels Housewife. I am so excited to be guest blogging over here at A Glimpse Inside, it is truly an honor!
I am a wife, mother to three little ladies, complete do-it-yourselfer, and a wanna be artist.
I have two great passions: 1) hanging with my ladies and 2) creating things that are free or nearly free. And, so what could be more fun that combining your two loves?? Well, I can’t think of anything.
A great adventure always starts with a plan and where it goes from there is up to you.  Sometimes to get this plan kick started you need something a little unexpected. Let’s say this something is a metal star.

My kids love nothing more than having a purpose for our adventures. We had the metal star and we needed to find something to add to it to make it special.
We knew that something special could be found down a path like this. In nature the possibilities are endless!



And, we knew there would definitely be treasures to find at a beach like this.



It was the perfect day. Eight miles of trails and so many great finds along the way. 
So, what did we do with the star??

How’d we do it? So simple. We used a tree trimming scissor to cut branches into the correct sizes and super glued them on to the star. I love how it now has that nautical feel that I so love and it was FREE!!

It feels like the days slip by too quickly and the time I am able to spend with my kids goes by way too fast. It is so fun to be able to spend a day doing something we both love together!
Thanks so much for sharing Maggie!!
