Summer is here!  Looking for fun & educational ideas to do with the kids this summer?  Let’s talk about how to host a backyard Pooh Party!  My friend Laura is a fellow teacher and asked me to participate in her “Soak Up Summer Reading” Series!  I was thrilled!  You can catch up on more of her fantastic summer reading activities here on her website.  Let’s get ready for a little backyard Pooh Party, shall we? My kids are are grown now and reading in the summer with little people is not something I do on a daily basis anymore.  When…

Let’s learn how to make a Cactus Pinata together!  Are you that person who is always looking for a project?  Especially a craft project?  I’m not always,even though I LOVE to craft but definitely up for it, if I can’t find what I want!  I was looking locally for a cactus pinata and could not locate one.  I was in a time crunch and needed it like yesterday or I would have ordered online.  They have some cute ones!  But, hey…I thought it couldn’t be too hard to make one, right?!  So I ran to Hobby Lobby and learned from…

My Heart is bubbling with happiness friend that you are here!  Don’t you love Valentine tags or gift tags that have catchy sayings!  It is one of my favorite things and brings a smile.  I guess I am kind of cheesy that way.  You can purchase the “My Heart is Bubbling with Happiness” tags here.  These tags are so easy to print off from your printer, cut out and adhere or tie them onto a bottle of bubbles or even some hand soap.  How cute is that?  I purchased a set of extra tiny bubble bottles shown in the photos…

Marbleizing a desktop or table top has a few tedious steps but in a few hours you have a new look!  I was looking for a more feminine look for a desk that my husband brought home from his office.  It was going to be used in my studio and marbleizing the desktop with a “marble” look was the perfect idea!  I have used shelf lining paper before to cover table tops and I remembered that it came in a marble pattern.  I checked a few places and landed at Lowes Home Improvement.  They had a pretty white and gray…

This chalk paint chandelier project was simple.  It was the quick change my studio needed!  More changes in the redo of my office studio can be seen here in the previous post.  This is the “before” and “after” photo of the chandelier.  A lovely chocolate brown that was great back in the early 2000’s.  But, definitely needed a fresh look.  Believe me, it would have been great to get a “new” chandelier and hang it, but that was not in the budget…as well as I am always looking for a project. So painting it was! I decided to go to…
