Rainy Day Monsters {kid craft} #makeitfuncrafts

This post is brought to you by Make It Fun Crafts®. #makeitfuncrafts #MIFTeam

Hello! How are you? We are on the countdown to no more school. Yay! Only 3 more days! We can’t wait! ha! Over the summer we definitely bust out the craft supplies more often especially when it’s raining or too hot to play outside. I keep a big tub of craft supplies in our pantry so the kiddos can grab it anytime they feel like creating. We have all kinds of things inside. One of the things I love to keep on hand are the fun STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam products that come in so many fun shapes & sizes from Make It Fun Crafts®. I’m so excited to show you our latest rainy day creation. (It has rained a bunch!) These Rainy Day Monsters are so fun to make with just a few supplies! So let’s get started. :)

This post is brought to you by DecoArt. #chalkyfinish #decoartprojects

Hello! Good morning! I don’t know if you are like me, but I have a gazillion things on my “I want to get this done” list. Annnnd sometimes it takes me quite a while to get things check off that list. ha! Buuuut it feels so good when I do! ;) I have wanted to makeover the storage bench in our front entry way for forever. It has gotten pretty beat up & bang up over the years. I finally took a day & got it done with some help from the fabulous Americana Decor® Chalky Finish Paint line & supplies.

Teacher Gift Idea for a Man #GearLove

I made this amazing teacher gift basket (for a man) using great products from Office Depot as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #GearLove #GearUpForGreat

Hello! How are you? Amazing! I hope! As you may know I come from a big family ~ 6 girls & one (lucky!) boy. ha! My brother has been a news reporter for several years. Right now he is in Dallas covering all the top stories. So I was a little bit surprised when he called me last week & told me that he was hanging up his camera & life in the spotlight to become a teacher! Eek! He will be teaching 7th grade Texas history starting this fall. I am so happy for him, and I know he will make a great teacher. Of course, as his big sister I want to help him gear up for a great year this fall. So I headed off to Office Depot to pick up some of the gear that I love that I knew would be perfect for his new classroom this fall. I picked up some of my favorite things & made this teacher gift basket for a man. You don’t see many manly teacher gift ideas! ha! So keep reading to see what gear love I am sharing with my brother. I’ll also give you some tips for assembling a gift basket, & I have a cute teacher printable for you, too. So let’s get started. :)

Pizza Party Ideas & Printables #BigPizzeriaTaste

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and TONY’S® Pizza, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BigPizzeriaTaste http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Hello! How are you? Did you have a great weekend? I hope so! We had tons to do, & I think we got most of it done. ha! When I was a little girl nothing brought us more excitement than two words ~ Pizza Party! Our pizza parties always included frozen pizza (like yummy TONY’S® Pizza!!), soda, chips & a dessert. We have continued that tradition with our own kiddos, & they love them just as much I did as a kid. At our house every Friday night is pizza party night. So keep reading to see how easy it is to throw a simple pizza party for your family. I also have some cute pizza party printables for you. :)

Color Blocked Garden Pots {tutorial}

This post was first seen over on The Creative Studio by Canvas Corp Brands.

Good morning! Spring has arrived, and summer will be here soon! Yay! We have been working outside in our garden a bunch! When we first got married I would always kill everything I tried to plant! ha! I have gotten a little bit better since then. ;) Thank goodness! I really enjoy working outside now. We have a ton of strawberries starting to turn red. Making some strawberry jam is next on the list! Today I’d love to show you how I made these simple Color Blocked Garden Pots. These would look cute in your home or garden. They’d make a great gift idea, too. I used the amazing High Impact Mixed Media Paints from Tattered Angels. These paints are so fun to use, & they would be perfect for your next project. So let’s get started.
