Having lived in the Southwest for most of my life, we are no strangers to the sun. There is always SOMETHING in your car that shouldn't be left there for fear of melting in the sun. As kids we used to leave VHS tapes, (does anyone even use those anymore besides me?!), CDs, groceries even food got spoiled in the car+sun combo in the time it took us to get home, a lovely 45 minute drive from town, (I grew up in the sticks). In short, the sun is harsh, and not everything is meant to be sitting in it all day long!
The beggining of the post reminds me of this picture I saw on Pinterest:
For those of you who think we are kidding, we aren't!!! This is life in 115° weather, which is completely normal in the southern United States.
So, with that here is your Pinterest Warning for the day!! Thanks Vanessa!
There are lots of posts about the whole unique colored/glittered key thing, and the one above is the first one that came to mind.
Vanessa saw a picture of a glitter key and decided to make her own by using glitter nail polish. She shellacked the keys all up, threw them on her key ring and took off. Perfection! Until her keys sat in her car...trouble.
The keys melted together! Bad news is she can't really do anything about it till she can get a hold of some acetone to pry them apart them, good thing is it can be fixed.
One blog says to use mod podge, and then glitter:
The blog above uses alcohol to clean the keys front and back and then uses a nail primer on the keys. She then uses the brush to apply the mod podge and lays each key on one of the glitter containers. When they are dry she used a top coat on the glitter to seal it and keep it from making a mess or chipping off.
So, you have been warned!! Anyone else have a super fun way to distinguish different keys or make this process less fool proof?!Let us know! We love your feedback!
Happy Friday Pinstrosipeeps!
