Summer Boredom Idea Box

We all know the dreaded words, “I’m bored” that seem to happen all summer! It is important to be prepared with some summer boredom busters. Last year, I prepared ahead of time and created what we are calling, the Summer Boredom Box. It was a summer boredom idea box that was used as a reward system for when chores get done. It worked really well and I wanted to do it again, but we did make a few adjustments for this year. I wanted to include a lot more free activities and things that my kids could do without my help.

I will include everything that we put in the summer boredom box from last year and this year, as well as tons of great summer activity ideas that you can use that aren’t in our boxes.

I wanted it to be used as a reward system, so that we were sure to get chores done before anything else. I also wanted it to be kept in a box that only one thing is taken out each day, so that everything is looked at as a novelty. Some days, we will be going out and doing fun activities after chores are done, so the box won’t be necessary on those days. A summer boredom box doesn’t need to be a crazy financial investment. I did spend a little more this year than I did last year on a few of the items because I knew they were going to be items that we were going to buy this summer anyway. Because there were a few more expensive items, I wanted to include more free items as well. [Read more…]

How to Make Patriotic Shirts

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday! I love enjoying the summer sun, going to the parade, watching the hot dog eating contest, and of course the fireworks! Sometimes it is hard to find just the right patriotic shirts for my family to wear. I feel like a lot of them are really cheesy, or super trashy. So, I have to rely on myself and make my own! I will show you how to make patriotic shirts, too!

We have used Beddy’s zipper bedding for years! I got our first bedding for Harper’s room when she was in a toddler bed. I got the twin size and would just fold over the edges to make it fit. Now that she is in a twin sized bed, we can use it to it’s full potential.

DIY Lemon Wreath

Lemon wreaths are officially my love language! I absolutely adore them! The problem is that I will see a lemon wreath that I really love and it will be way out of my price range, especially considering how simple many of them are. That is why I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own DIY lemon wreath.

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors Makeup: Album Cover Makeup

Imagine Dragons Smoke and Mirrors is a really strong album. It was the time when I really realized just how deep Imagine Dragons could get. Their songs on this album are riddled with greater meaning, while the sound isn’t compromised at all. If you haven’t ever listened to the entire album, do yourself a favor give it a listen.

When I was deciding what music albums I would be tackling this year with my album cover makeup looks, I knew Smoke and Mirrors needed to be in the mix. Not only is it one of my favorite albums, but the album cover itself is pretty amazing. The cover art was created by an artist named Tim Cantor, who’s style is a little dark and pretty complex, while also keeping it relatively simple. I was really inspired by the colors and textures in the album art and knew I needed to represent it in the best way I could through my album cover makeup.
