Make It: Beach Vacation Memory Jar


It's Spring Break time and I thought it would be a great time to share my Beach Vacation Memory Jars. This is a fun project whether you're documenting a recent trip or have a little vacation sand stashed away from a past trip. If you're at the beach right now, even better! Looking out our windows here, a beach getaway sounds fabulous!

We're at home this break, but we've been fortunate to take beach vacations in past years. With more snow in the forecast for the end of the week, I thought it would be fun to share a few favorite spring break photos from past trips and a fun keepsake project.

Empty jars from the Target Dollar Spot.

What You Need:

Jar with Cork Stopper (I found mine in the Target Dollar Spot)
Large Paperclip
Vacation Photo (Mine's about 3"x4")
Sand or Shells
Embellishments (optional)
Blogger Widgets

Make It: Burlap & Grommet Spring Bunting


Happy Spring!

We still have a decent amount of snow and ice around, and I am getting anxious for some spring color! It's going to be a while before we get spring colors outside, but here's a project to brighten things up inside. I found some fun spring twine and some burlap ribbon at Michael's the other day. The colors were just too fun to pass up, and it was the inspiration for this easy Spring Bunting.

Make It: Hammered Metal Shamrock Pendant


Recently I came across One Artsy Mama's Hammered Wire Coffee Mug Necklace. Check it out, if you haven't seen it. It's darling! Since I've been wanting to make a pendant for St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd give a Shamrock a whirl using the same process she did. I'm pretty happy with how it came out!

Print It: You're the "Kool"-est Valentine


With Valentine's Day just a week away, I'm remembering the scramble to decorate boxes and bags and make sure that each kid had Valentines for all of their classmates. For a few years there, it was quite the undertaking!

I thought I'd share an easy Valentine idea with you today, just in time for the weekend. Add Kool-Aid Jammer's drink pouches to your shopping list, print out my "You're the Kool-est" Valentines, and gather the kids for an assembly-line!
