Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

My husband used to be an elementary school teacher. It was always interesting to see what kinds of gifts his students would bring him. A lot of times, he would end up with loads of candy. Candy is nice, but there is only so much candy one person can take before it gets a little old! When it was time to come up with a gift to give my daughter’s preschool and dance teachers, I knew I wanted to give them something practical and personal. That’s when we came up with this darling handwritten water bottle teacher gift idea!

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

These water bottles turned out just so sweet with this little 5 year old handwriting and artwork. I know that they will be treasures for her teachers and will be sweet reminders of my daughter each time they use them. I think the best part was just how simple they were to make!

Easy Bright Confetti Pumpkins Halloween Decor

I have realized as I decorate for holidays that I really like non traditional holiday decor. If there are Halloween decorations in a store that are made with colors besides just orange and black, I always find myself gravitated to them. I love the different perspective that non traditional colors can bring to a holiday. This year is the first year that I have had the opportunity to decorate for Halloween in our current home because we moved almost exactly a year ago and the last thing I was about to do was decorate for Halloween when I was just trying to get my life out of boxes. It has been really fun to decorate this year and to take out old decor that I forgot that I even owned! One spot in my house that I knew I wouldn’t have decor for was my coffee table. We have a tray that goes on there that usually has succulents in it but I wanted something a little more festive for Halloween. I knew that I didn’t want it to be totally traditional because my living room is such a bright and cheery space.

The perfect solution was to make these adorable confetti pumpkins!

Kitchen Pantry Subway Art and Giveaway

This post contains affiliate links.

I have lived in my house for just over 2 months now. Usually, I am the type of person to move in and get everything decorated right away. I totally have been dragging my feet this time around! Part of it may be the fact that we have heard horror stories about the property management company we are renting through and I get freaked out to hang anything up in my house. Just last week, I hung up the first thing in my house and it turned on some sort of switch within me and I have been slowly working my way through the house as I decorate. One of the first rooms I worked on was my kitchen. We spend a lot of time in there and I wanted it to feel like a happy place to be!

I absolutely loved the idea of putting some sort of design on my pantry door, but wasn’t sure what to put on it. I started looking through the Silhouette store and fell in love with this kitchen subway art graphic that they had. I purchased it right away! This was a fun little project and I love the pop of color that it helps add to my kitchen as well.

Shamrock Patch Pants and Shirt

One of my favorite parts about holidays is getting my daughter all dolled up for them. Even the most simple holiday can turn into something special with the right outfit! I haven’t ever been the biggest fan of St. Patrick’s Day. I have always felt like it was a little cheesy. I made it my mission to create a cute outfit that wasn’t super cheesy.
