Anyone else have empty wine bottles laying around? Why not turn them into flower vases and then go for a walk to pick wildflowers? Just use scissors to cut some adhesive vinyl (check out @expressionsvinyl for some really good vinyl deals) and then stick it to the empty bottles to create a fun pattern. Think terrazzo, abstract, or even stripes. No wine bottles? Any glass bottles will work. It’s a fun activity both kids and adults can enjoy. And if it means you have to enjoy a glass of wine or two to get an empty bottle, then that’s not the worst thing. 😉
With all this hand washing, I think I should go get out my soap making supplies and get to crafting up a few new colorful bars this weekend. Swipe to see a few of my favorite soap bars I’ve made over the years (yes they are all soap!) and then head to the blog and search soap for find the tutorials for each. Which one would you want to wash your hand with?
The nice, sunny springtime weather has been a life saver during the last few weeks. We have been able to play and hangout in the backyard (so thankful I got this space set up before all of this), planted our spring garden, gone in the hot tub almost daily, and done lots of yard work. Not gonna lie the kids have had a few tough days adjusting to the calmness and lack of plans and activities to do outside the home, but I think it’s forcing us all to figure out what we like to do with our time and what activities make us happy. After a melt down by my 11 year old nephew (who l became guardian of last year) on Tuesday, yesterday we attempted to find things that interest him outside of YouTube videos and video games and spent the day baking, geocaching, hot tubbing, and watching a movie on our projector. It was a good day. Anyone have any other ideas for activities for tween boys to do during this time? Getting thrown into parenting a tween boy with trauma and no real interests was hard before and is even more challenging now. Any ideas are much appreciated!
Several of you commented on my ‘totally’ sign and today I’m sharing just how I made it. It is actually a faux neon sign made with fluorescent acrylic that glows around the edges in the daylight! Like it legit looks lit up! Not only does it look amazing, it is a fraction of the cost of a real neon sign. So if you need to add a little happiness to your home office life and if you don’t have access to a laser cutter, I’m taking custom orders to help you cut your own designs using my Glowforge. The cost is $24 per 11.5” by 19” long word or phrase of your choice. Check out the blog or my shop for more details or DM me if you need one for your home office.
Just because we are socially isolating doesn’t mean you can’t make your Easter meals cute! I cut giant carrots out of foam core and painted them and added glitter for a simple but cute Easter centerpiece. This would also be a fun project to do with your kids and old cereal boxes too! Maybe hang them up on your mantel or glue them to ribbon to make them a garland. Or glue them to a wreath form for a cute Easter wreath. So many options!
Pretty in pastel! While I won’t be dying Easter eggs with the kids this year (can’t waste those precious eggs!), that doesn’t mean we can paint fake ones. These are wood eggs I have an 80s inspired makeover to with acrylic paint, geometric shapes and a few black accents. How will you paint your eggs?
Is there such a thing as too many colors? 🤗 Everything in the shop is now 20% off, with code, LUCKY! 🌈🐰
Accidentally deleted my original post so I’m reposting! 😂😂😂 I’ll take my quarantini with all the neon leopard print! These DIY vinyl decorated glasses are up on the blog today along with the cut file for the leopard pattern. Or you can swipe for the quick how to video.
