Summer Paint Pour Canvas

Today is the first day of summer break for us and I'm feeling all the colorful, happy vibes that come with this season.  I am looking forward to lots of lazy days spent by the pool, vacations, and simply enjoying a slower pace schedule with my kids.  Each year as my kids get older I realize that these sweet summer moments are fleeting and before you know it they won't be around much.  Just like these moments with my kids I want to make summer last, so I decided to create a … [Read more...]

Hello there friends! St. Patrick's Day is that special holiday where anyone can be Irish for the day.

No matter where you fall on the celebratory spectrum of this holiday, I think it's safe to say we all feel blessed and we all hope and wish for a … [Read more...]

Fluid Acrylic Poured Canvas Art

One of my goals for 2018 was to push myself to try new craft mediums and projects and to branch out of my creative bubble.  I decided to tackle one of the current trends and techniques that is all the rage lately, and to be honest intimidates me the most!  I teamed up with DecoArt to create my own fluid acrylic poured canvas art, and I have to say I'm in love with this paint trend!

Mistletoe Embroidery Hoop Art

This post is being sponsored by Thermoweb. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I'm hosting our monthly supper club next week and decided on a festive Margaritas and Mistletoe themed celebration.  I've been busy planning and creating decorations, but realized one important thing was missing...mistletoe.  It turns out you can't actually buy real mistletoe in my area because it is a parasitic plant that can be harmful to trees.  So, I did what any creative hostess would do in a … [Read more...]

My Story Stones: Painted River Rocks

Every summer my family takes a trip to the Frio River, it's a vacation that actually started with college friends 15 years ago and it is a highly anticipated vacation for everyone in the family, I guess you could say it's our happy place.

We have quite the collection of rocks that somehow make their way home, get scattered around the yard and house, and occasionally even end up in the wash. … [Read more...]
