I have been knee deep in DIY projects lately. I finish one to start another and finish that one to start again. I love it though! I like to keep the creative juices flowing. Plus, when my family or friends need a helping hand, I just can’t refuse! I have posts coming soon about all these DIY projects. I’ve been giving little sneak peaks on Facebook and Instagram, so check those out if you want to see what’s coming up. During these big DIY projects, I did squeeze in a couple smaller projects I want to share you. This project is so easy! If you have a sewing machine, you can whip this up in an hour. Continue reading
Recently, I was sewing up some quick envelope pillow covers and figuring out the measurements for the umpteenth time to cut out the fabric. I thought…boy it sure would be nice if I had made a compiled list of measurements every time I sewed a new pillow cover. Wouldn’t it be much easier than figuring out the math again or digging through old notebooks to find measurements to covers I had sewn before. So, to make my job and yours a little easier next time you want to sew an envelope pillow cover, I’ve made a compiled list. This Envelope Pillow Cover Measurement Guide will be the perfect quick reference tool to save time and brain power. Continue reading
Hi all!! Happy Friday! It’s been a crazy busy week for me!
I’ve come up with an idea! I have so many talented family members and friends that are always cooking up something delicious, doing some really cool DIY projects, or throwing some fun event. I’ve decided to do a post called Feature Friday With Family And Friends! Sometimes I will have my hand in the cookie jar on these posts and sometimes I will be elbow deep. Other times it will be a spotlight on that particular family member or friend and strictly showcase how talented they are! I thought this would be a great way to show off the fun, cool, and creative things that I get to see and you wouldn’t because these folks don’t have a blog. Continue reading
So, I’m trying my hand at printables. I love free printables on Pinterest! I use them all the time and thought I would give it a go. Ever wonder how people make those free printables you see all over Pinterest? I found an easy solution to make a free spring printable using PicMonkey!
The time had come to make out my meal plan for the week and get my grocery list underway. I keep a magnetic notepad on the fridge where I write down any items I run out of or realize I need during the week. I went to grab this notepad to write out my list and noticed it has a picture of a snowman printed on all the pages. Winter is over and the snowman is no longer relevant “refrigerator decor” for at least the next 8 months. There has to be at least 40 or 50 pages left on this notepad. Hmm…with a little finger tap to the chin…I start thinking, I could always buy a new notepad but that’s an item I usually just happen to stumble across during random shopping trips. So, instead, I decided I would make up a cover page to add to the front of the notepad with some cute graphics that translate to anytime of the year and not just one particular season. I figured while I was at it, I could make up refill sheets and never have to stumble across those little notepads during shopping again! While I’m at it, I might as well share these printables with you!
First, let’s start with the heart strings cause mine are pulled and my funny bone has been tickled too! Let me just say, I have the most amazing brother in the world who married the most amazing woman in the world in the most hilarious wedding ceremony in the world! Continue reading
Dr. Seuss’s Birthday was Monday and our school throws down big time for that man! The whole week is a huge event! The PTO holds a costume contest, decks the school out from top to bottom, and gives out Seuss style snacks. The Second Grade puts on a special Seussical Musical and the school staff put on an amazing spirit day in honor of Dr. Seuss! It’s a huge event and I love it! This is one of my most favorite activities for the whole school year! I got to thinking what should Garrett be this year??? Continue reading
