  •   areformedheathn Danny, I'd like to order one of your bangles for my daughter. It looks like I can add on charms; is there a tutorial/trick. I also want to make sure the charms don't come off easily since she's still quite rough and tumble about everything. 1w
  •   dheyen @areformedheathn You can order from lilyandmaze.com. I can set up a custom listing for you if it's easier. I used a stainless steel bangle and jump ring on that bangle and those jump rings are really hard to open. I put one on a bangle and pulled as hard as I could on the charm and it ended up breaking the bangle, jump ring hadn't budged. 1w
  •   ashwinidhas Is there anyway you can get a charm with India on it?! 🇮🇳 That would be super cool! 6d
  •   dheyen @ashwinidhas I'll look around. I probably have a far better chance of finding it in real silver or gold. I can also get real silver or gold bangles, they're just more expensive. 6d
  •   ashwinidhas Oh okay! Let me know! If it's too hard to find, it's fine - thanks! 5d
  •   dheyen @ashwinidhas I can have one made like this out of acrylic, no problem, but I'll look for a metal one first. 5d

dheyen I started reading The Duff on a whim yesterday. I was meeting a friend for dinner but she was a little late, so I pulled out my Kindle and opened the first book I had unread. I ended up staying up until 2am reading and just sat down to finish the book after a long day. So here's the deal: first, the book is nothing like the movie. I liked them both, but if the character names were different, I'd have never known they were related. Second, this book has a lot of swearing and a lot of sex scenes. Not overly descriptive sex scenes like you might find in romance novels (I'm making assumptions here), but they are there all the same. Definitely NOT a book for kids (I won't get on my soapbox about these being young ADULT books). This book was so good because Bianca was so fierce. She was unapologetically herself and I loved that she stayed the same. Oh, and Mae Whitman is the most awesomely perfect Bianca ever. #dannyheartsbooks #kodykeplinger #theduff #duff 2w
  •   sarahrose__ I enjoyed the movie. I'll have to read this now! 2w
  •   issabella_the_cat I've been eyeing this up for a while but I've a book list thats taller than I am to get through & I'm just about to start Daughter of smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor 2w
  •   dheyen @issabella_the_cat I know how you feel! It wasn't even on my radar until I saw it on Bookbub for free one day. Since it was free, I downloaded it. The audio was pretty cheap (I think $1??) so I got that too so I could try the Whispersynch thing, which is a pretty cool feature. I ended up reading this book though, not listening. If you end up changing your mind, this one was a super quick read. In all, I think it took me 6 hours to read. 2w
  •   m_greco14 I had the same thoughts! I read the book and fell in love with it but the movie is so much different 2w

dheyen Thank you to the best Cousin Tiffany EVER! @tiffanymarlynn Clara loves her new old Barbies!! 2w
  •   tiffanymarlynn I'm so happy she loves them!! 2w
  •   dheyen @tiffanymarlynn SOOOO loves them! The butterflies on the dress dance with the wand and the astronaut came with glow-in-the-dark moon stones. She's thrilled!! Keeps dancing them around the house then yelling that they have to save the moon stones, which are tucked away in the dark bathroom where she can "found" them. 2w

dheyen Good morning! Kids are still asleep so I'm having some quiet time with my new book and a hot cup of coffee. Thank you @mobedell for the mug!! 2w
  •   bwquilts Please let us know what you think of the book. I have it on hold at the library but won't be getting it for awhile. 😀 2w
  •   mobedell You are welcome! I like the size of those mugs- a little on the bigger size! 2w
  •   fabrications2b For heaven's sake, stay away from the media until you finish! 2w

dheyen I am in search of the best vanilla cake recipe! Mazer's birthday is coming up and she has requested a pink Lego cake but she doesn't like strawberry, so this mama will be dying vanilla cake to be pink. Any recipes you just love?? I'm also taking recommendations on icing/frosting pairings! (Image from Pinterest) 2w
  •   ylmommyx4 @dheyen I love @sweetapolita recipes. 2w
  •   darcychildress If you do doctor up a mix go with a white one, otherwise you'll get an orange cake! 2w
  •   dheyen @darcychildress Ooo! Good point! 2w
  •   dheyen @melrosecakes Don't know if I can use it for this cake, but I'd love the recipe! Would you mind emailing it to me? Danny(dot)heyen(at)gmail 2w
  •   melrosecakes I'll get it out in the morning. 2w
  •   clumsykristel My favourite vanilla cake recipe comes from Cupcake Bakeshop, specifically the one listed at cupcakeblog.com/?p=67 though I guess thinking about it I always make them as cupcakes and never full cakes, so I don't know how long it would cook for or anything... Still: super delicious with a great texture 2w
  •   melrosecakes Sorry it took 2 days. Sent the email tonight. 2w
  •   dheyen @melrosecakes Ooo! Thanks! 2w

dheyen Added to Clara Mazer's command center today. She is so excited to learn about dates and the weather! 2w
  •   t_stjohn Learning the weather will be easy. Today's forecast: stupid hot. 2w
  •   dheyen @t_stjohn I told her it would probably stay on "hot" for a really long time, but if she wants to mix it up, we can move the indicator to "sunny". 2w

dheyen This book was excellent. Well written. I'd say that this book wouldn't be a good fit for younger teens (it's young ADULT for a reason). Also, read the synopsis before diving in because this story may not be for everyone. Lots of secrets and heartache, but redemptive and merciful too. #dannyheartsbooks #jandynelson #illgiveyouthesun 2w

dheyen One more finish for me! I have been reading #Quiet aloud to my husband so it took a little longer to finish. Having six hours on the road today gave us the chance to complete the book, though. I'm pretty sure I won't have a voice tomorrow from all the reading out loud, but it was so worth it. Loved this book and that there are people who are sharing what it's like to be introverted with the world. #susancain #dannyheartsbooks 3w
  •   spetzie My husband read this and said it helped him put words to explain 'me' better. So good!! 3w
  •   llatham0306 I always knew I was introverted, but I truly didn't understand it until I read this book. It had such a HUGE impact on my life. 3w
  •   dheyen @spetzie @llatham0306 Yeah. Growing up, I was forced into uncomfortable, extroverted situations by family and people of authority in my life and I always hated it. My parents didn't understand why I spent hours alone in my room reading, writing, or lying on the floor listening to music. Now that I'm an adult and I don't have anyone forcing me toward extrovertedness, I've settled into my own self. Learning to say 'no' has always been a struggle for me, but I feel like I understand better why I feel the need to say no. This book is just awesome. @cloverandviolet @littleislandquilting 3w
  •   5kidsandacat I can't say enough good things about this book. Helped me to love me. 3w
  •   dheyen @5kidsandacat That's a great way to put it! 3w
  •   5kidsandacat Yeah, when you know you're different your whole life but you're not "obviously different. It's hard to really appreciate the things about you that make you special. I'm sure that's true for everyone but I think more so for introverts. I've spent a long time comparing my insides to others outsides. I realize now the value I bring to the table so to speak and that the "quiet" part of me is power. 3w
  •   the_littlest_thistle Oh the irony of reading a book with that title aloud :oD 3w
  •   dheyen @the_littlest_thistle Oh, trust me: the irony was not lost on me!! 3w

dheyen Of course, THE SECOND I walked in the door from vacation, I had to tear open my #pssummerlovinswap package from @mobedell. It's all so amazing!!! Beautiful books, fabric, embroidery, coffee mug, and arc reactor earrings!!! You know me so well, Mo. Thank you so very much for everything! 3w

dheyen This one was "whoa". I wasn't expecting this ending, even as I read it. It heavy. I'd say definitely not for young audiences. #dannyheartsbooks #wewereliars #lockhart 3w

dheyen It's always good to learn new skills... Like picking locks. (I'm not very good at it.) 3w
  •   materialgirlkirsten Fun! It's a good skill to have! Spencer learned a little last summer, and could pick our house locks disturbingly quickly... 3w
  •   dheyen @materialgirlkirsten Most of these are five and six pin locks with anti-picking mechanisms. So difficult!! Brent wants to do a lock picking village at this security education day he's planning, so I dusted off my lock pick set and we all sat around picking! These are all the super hard locks no one has been able to pick before. 3w
  •   materialgirlkirsten So cool!! 3w

dheyen This little girl asked me to read her a story, so I put down my book and read her this one. I used to LOVE Cam Jansen books when I was little! I found this one at one of the libraries we went to this week. When we finished, she said, "Ok Mommy. Now you have to take a picture and show all the people because that's what you're supposed to do when you finish reading a book. Right?" I think I've created a monster! #dannyheartsbooks #camjansen 3w
  •   nedrasorensen No, you've created a reader! Wonderful! 3w
  •   spetzie Following in her mama's footsteps....such a great testament!! 3w
  •   bwquilts Yes! We will expect to see pictures of her and all her books. So adorable... 3w
  •   modern_balabusta Throw back! I loved Cam Jansen too!! 3w
  •   whatthebobbin Cuteness!! 3w

dheyen Sigh. Such good books. I loved every second of these ones, even when Belly was acting like a child and Conrad was all moody. Mark two more completed books for me! (I read the first one a while back.) #dannyheartsbooks #jennyhan #thesummeriturnedpretty 3w
  •   lechugayeah Dang girl! 3w
  •   dheyen @lechugayeah I have to take advantage of my time when Meemaw is watching the girls. I read more over our summer vacation than I do in six months at home. 3w
  •   jessmakes I'm so bummed - I've looked at two Targets and neither has it. 2w
  •   dheyen Awe! Can you order it? @jessmakes If not, I can pick it up for you. Just pay for the book and shipping. 2w
  •   jessmakes I'll do some looking - thanks for the offer! 2w

  •   amknitty Artemis Fowl books are very good! 3w
  •   dheyen @amknitty I haven't read them, but I have the first book and I've heard they are great, so I had to pick them up. They were all half off! 3w
  •   phxsewjen I love Artemis! I read the series with my son! 3w
