Back to School Pencil Crafts

Ah Back to School…love this time of the year.  Amongst the crazy of buying supplies and uniforms, I do like to try and thank the teachers in some way.  They deserve it.  And really, a pencil vase?  Cute. While I love the look of the pencil bouquet with its scrapbook flowers and the (super easy) cricut …

Sport Flip Flops DIY

Love baseball?  I was surprised at how easily it was to make a flower out of a ball and attach to some flip flops. They turned out great! I’m thinking other sports can easily be done, softball or maybe even soccer next? You can buy sport flip flops on Etsy and certainly lots of pins on …

National Watermelon Day

Apparently August 3rd is National Watermelon Day. Who knew? So of course I happen to have a drink for the occasion. Very fresh and oh so good. First you must have lime juice. Fresh is best, but I won’t tell if you buy the bottle shaped like a lime at the store. There are all sorts …

Who doesn’t like getting something for free? Certainly the large entertainment companies are in attendance at Comic-Con so I needed to be prepared. On …

Comic-Con: Blogger Thank You

A big part of building our nest is taking vacations. Big or small they allow us to step away from school/work and try to unplug from our phones even if it is for a couple of days. So I’ve decided to start blogging more on our getaways. We were lucky enough to make it through the …
