A Beer Cake For The Man In Your Life

Birthdays and holidays always leave my baffled when it comes to what to give the men in my life as a gift.  Unless I have a list with a specific tool or electronic devises I am lost, and most likely I don’t have enough money to buy it anyway!  These days I am trying hard to think practical, but still put the time and effort into giving gifts to the men that mean the most to me deserve.  With father’s day right around the corner and today being my handsome hubby’s birthday I wanted to share a past gift with you that was a huge hit.  What man doesn’t love a nice cold...

End Of The Year Teacher’s Thank You Gift

Yesterday I shared with you an  idea for an infinity scarf teachers appreciation gift that included a simple sewing project.  Here is another quick and easy idea for those of you who don’t sew, or don’t have time to make a scarf before the end of the school year!  Stop and grab a nice bottle of nail polish in a shade that you think your child’s teacher will like.  Maybe a bright fun color for summer.  Then add a little tag that says:  “Thanks for helping me polish up my reading, writing, and much more!”  This would make a great little thank you for any...

Teachers are such an important part of our children’s lives and saying thank you to them is so important!  As the end of the school year approaches I have been thinking hard about a way to show them how much my kids have enjoyed having them as a teacher, and for me how much I appreciate them loving, teaching, and sharing in my children’s lives.  There are so many teachers appreciation gift ideas out there, but here is my take on a simple and inexpensive gift that my kids will be giving to their teachers this year to say Thank You to infinity for all that they do!  A simple DIY...

Repurposed Serving Tray To A Chalkboard Welcome Sign

Summertime is just around the corner and now that the weather is getting nice we are spending a ton of time outdoors.  Along with preparing the garden, doing some spring cleaning, and breaking out the summer decor we added a new welcome sign by the front door.  I received this serving tray almost 9 years ago as a wedding gift, and I bet I used it twice over those 9 years.  It was really  neat and nice, so I didn’t really want to get rid of it, so I decided I would just re purpose it into something that I would use and love.  A can of chalkboard paint and some painters tape took...
