Pinterest Inspired Art Summer Project for You or the Kids




Welcome to my Blog



I am always so inspired by Pinterest and how creative everyone is that post their ideas and DIY projects. I have decided to bring new blog and Youtube ideas your way from projects I try from Pinterest. I am sure I will be surprised at how some of this turnout. I love to see the side by side pictures where someone saw it on Pinterest and then they made it. Wow, what a difference.....a very funny difference.  This will be the first project so fingers crossed on how this goes for me. It's the perfect project for you home or for the kids to put together over Summer!


You will need:
Paint Chips
glue
art canvas
paper shape cutter


I never have a problem picking out paint chips from my local hardware store. 


Pick the design you want and start designing! I did not go by a pattern but simply thought it would look awesome if the butterflies looked like they were taking off in flight as a group. 


After a quick search on Pinterest, I noticed how popular Paint Chip Designs are. There are so many to pick from so don't worry if you feel like you are not creative with design. I love the way this project turned out. It was very easy.


I hope you enjoy this video to see just how to put this together with step by step instructions. The video will really help you see just how fun and easy this is. The kids would love to put something like this together and what a fun gift for the grandparents! 


Hope you enjoyed today's post!

Custom DIY Office Desk Mat


Welcome to my Blog



Custom DIY Desk Pad


Today I want to show you how to make a Custom DIY Desk Pad. Its so easy and all you will need is:
Elmers Spray Glue
Scissors
Fabric
Clear desk pad





Spray your pad on one side with the glue and make sure to cover from side to side and corner to corner. Then lay the sticky side on the design side of the fabric. Cut the fabric to fit the mat and then lightly spray the piece again along the sides to help keep it from splitting pieces. Be sure to not spray the top of the mat. 


I love the look of my desk with this pop of color. 







My home office is also one of my guest bedrooms. I love the way this room has come together and its one of my favorite spots in my home to work on my blog and new projects!




I hope you enjoyed this project and to see it with step by step take a look at the tutorial video below. Hope you enjoy and make one for yourself!



Stay tuned for later this week as I share the mouse pad tutorial for you!



Hope you enjoyed todays post!

Spending the Day with Dallas



Welcome to my Blog



This past Friday and Saturday I took a rode trip and went to visit my daughter at college. My first stop along the way was at Prestiers Pecan Shop. There is an artist that makes the collection below and each time I have the opportunity to visit this store on trips I like to pick up a new piece for my collection. All of her pieces have a faith based message which I love.  




Then Dallas and I stopped for lunch and had such a fun time. I wish I could spend every weekend having lunch with her!


She talked me into stopping at a local pet store and I feel in love with this little guy. I would have named him Frankie!


Then it was time for coffee at Starbucks. I am always up for coffee at Starbucks! 



We spent the afternoon shopping and wow did I want this necklace!




I love all the fun things we found and this sign was so cute. Something better than unicorns and sparkles!!!!



I love this set up on one of the display tables. It really reminded me of what I try to do with my blog and Youtube channel. 




Click below to see the video of our first day. We had so much fun and made the most of our two days together. Hope you enjoy!

Project Closet Clean Out


Welcome to my Blog


My next home project that I hope can help you as we all get ready for Summer!



I just completed my Project Closet Clean-Out to finish taking all of my steps to get ready for Summer. I want to have everything in place so I can spend my Summer nights taking long nights, going to the gym, and enjoying time with my family. 



There are people that will tell you to take everything you own and put it in the center of the floor at once and just go through everything. This is not a plan that would work for me because I work better in a clean environment. 

I took on my project by starting in a very clean workspace. I broke everything into categories and this worked great for me. Take a look at the video link below and I hope you find this helpful with you clean out! 



Hope you enjoyed todays post!

Project Kitchen Drawer Clean-Out

Welcome to my Blog



As you have seen from a previous post I had a few weeks ago I am working on a deep Summer cleanup project. With school out and no more late nights of homework I want to really enjoy my Summer nights. I want to be able to go for long walks after work or to the gym without having to worry about lots of messy choirs. To help me with this I am working on a complete cleanup of everything in my home. 

Here is a look into my kitchen drawer cleanup! 



My most used drawer is next to my stove.....which by the way in two weeks I will have a new stove and I am so very excited! I have placed these storage bins in the drawer to help keep everything straight and organized. I picked them up from Target. 


I highly recommend that once a year you go through your kitchen towels and make sure you have fresh new towels ready to be used. 



We take our lunch to work almost everyday and I like bringing my own silverware so of course I have containers to help keep them straight. 





Take a look at the video below so get more great ideas for your kitchen! 




Hope you enjoyed!

Shopping Haul With Great Deals


Welcome to my Blog

If your new to my Blog I would love to have you leave a comment. Its always fun to hear from those that enjoy seeing what you share! 


I did a little shopping this weekend and my first stop was at World Market. I needed cloth napkins to go with my new fish plates which I shared in a recent post which you can see by clicking here

This color set is perfect and best of all you get a set of 6 for only $9.99. The deal was even better because I used my email coupon and received an additional 10% off. 



Then I stopped by Pier 1 and found the deal of day! I purchased these cute bowls on the matching glass serving tray on clearance for $7.99. They were $24.99 but I bought them for $7.99!!!! That makes them even more adorable. 



Pier 1 also had these 4th of July balls which will look perfect on my dining room table while we entertain. They were $8.00 a piece and I have a great project in mind for them. I will be sure to share. 


Michaels has this set of 4 cardboard bowls for $1.99 each which match the large container I picked up from Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago. They will be perfect to hold hot dogs and chips as we sit around the pool on the 4th of July.



Then QVC offered this dish on clearance for $16.74 which you can see the link for here. As you know I love hosting a huge Cinco De Mayo party and this will be perfect for next here. You can see this years party by clicking this link.  



My final item is this flower arrangement from Pier 1. I made the final addition of the white flower with the pearl and rhinestones in the center this weekend. I have this arrangement in my office at work. When you work in an office 5 days a week for 10 hours a day you want to enjoy your workspace and I just love this!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post,
