Favorite Finds

I love love this car mat! Now on my list of to-do's for Baby B. You can find the tutorial here.

This wreath is so bright and fun! I especially love the flowers on it. You can find the tutorial here.

Love this pillow! So want to make this now. Can find it here.

Here were my top finds of the week! Now I want to get to working on all three of them! :)

Baby B loves water! I had this turtle swimming pool when I was little. I got it for my fist birthday and ate birthday cake in it. My mom gave it to Baby B for his first birthday and he ate cake in it too! Now we have it outside as a swimming pool for the summer!

Pretending to talk on the phone while swimming...

Trying to stand up in the pool...

It is so fun that he is getting to where he can do so much. I think there will be many more times of going outside to swim this summer!

My baby fish says to have a fun weekend!

Not a baby anymore...

I swear that Baby B changed overnight into a kid! He went to sleep a baby on his birthday and woke up the next day a kid! He is into everything and make far more messes and far more daring adventures. Man I thought he was busy but I don't think I knew what busy was! I know it sounds crazy but man he has been busy the last two days! :)

Now standing up to things like a pro and can stand there forever.

Try to pull all of the towels out of the bottom drawer before mom can catch him.

Forget sitting in the swimming pool, he'll try to stand instead!

Remote, phone and cup full of water. Sure I'll help myself to them.

Play with the radio... Sure!

He also in the last day has found the toilet, started standing up in crib and looking over the edge (you better believe we changed it to the lowest position as soon as Dallen got home!), open the changing table and start pulling things out as fast as you can. Man he is keeping me busy! And I'm afraid that once he walks it will be ten times more busy! He is at such a fun stage! Now if I could just keep up with him! :)

Porch Makeover. Well sorta....

I don't really have a porch necessarily.... But still wanted to find some way to make the entry into my house inviting and fun. I went to a few yard sales last weekend and found this planter and knew it was perfect. I had a hole under the tree that needed something and this worked perfect. So with new planter and the wreath I made for the door plus the house number on the door I feel like it looks a lot better.

Have a great day! I'm off to clean our camp trailer... :/ A camping trip this weekend and next!

Happy Birthday Baby B!

We are off celebrating and getting ready for his sock monkey party! Be back tomorrow!

Happy Birthday little guy! :)

Old window redo

My uncle had given me a few old window frames and I had been trying to decide what to do with them. One I ended up doing a family subway art with words all about our family(don't really know how to post it and show you where it has our address, town, first and last names etc. Maybe I'll post a list of what I did or something.) Anyways... The second one I decided to turn into a collage of Baby B's pictures. He is turning one tomorrow and it is so crazy how fast the last year has gone and how much he has grown. So I saw this quote- "In photos babies stay babies forever" and loved it. A few of my friends have also done things in their house with the same idea and quote. So here is the final project. Makes me realize how big Baby B has gotten!

Have a great day! :)

4th of July

We had a great 4th of July! It was Baby B's first 4th of July and he loved the fireworks! We went to the parade that morning and BBQ and fireworks that evening. It was a fun day!

Then the following days after the 4th I did a craft fair and so I haven't been home all week or around a computer to blog.... Then one of Baby B's birthday parties was yesterday... Been a busy week! Fun tutorials coming up but I better go wash some laundry and do some dishes after a week of being gone!
