Summer Fun – Tie Dye T-shirts With The Kids

Summer is quickly coming to an end I realize that this summer has been packed full of nonstop fun with the kids!  Thanks to our summer fun list and all of the fun summertime activities we were never really at a  loss for something to keep us busy.  One of my favorite summertime activities to do with the kids is make tie-dye shirts.  This is a little project that we have done every summer since they were very little, and it has become a super fun tradition!  They love to create the shirts, and then they have a fun play ans sleep shirt to wear all summer long too!  We also find it is a...

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...
