Spring Printable!

I created an adorable spring printable for y’all! It came out even better than I ‘d imagined. I love the saying, “April Showers bring May Flowers” & it couldn’t be more true recently. I’m hopin’ for those May flowers after all this yucky weather!

I created it as an 8×10 & the spring colors look especially great beside some spring green mason jars.

Spruce up for spring with this lovely printable. You can download it from Google docs at the end of this post.

I just looooove the bold, bright colors! Would be super cute on a mantle, in the kitchen, or in the entryway.

Let me know how you use it!

Happy Hump Day friends!

Knock-off VS PINK July 4th Tee

     So I went to Jo-Ann’s to purchase some cute patriotic fabric & wonder-under. Then to Walmart to buy a plain v-neck top. This evening I completed the project in less than an hour & am so pleased with the result! It’s exactly like the over-priced one I saw in the mall, but more personalized & half the cost . 

    Here’s how I made it-

     You’ll need to gather up some fabric scissors, wonder-under, the material of your choice, & a t-shirt of some sort. Also, print out the letters in a big bold font. I used the font IMPACT on size 300. It appeared the most similar to the VS PINK shirt.

     Cut out all your letters! 

     Iron on the sticky side of the heat-bond to the wrong side of the fabric. 

     Trace the letters onto the heat-bond. This is probably the most time-consuming part. Be sure to do the letters backwards. That way they come out facing the right way the first time. Do not do what I am doing in this photo…

     Continue until all the letters have been traced onto the fabric.

    Then cut them out!

     Peel the white backing off all the letters.

     Place the letters exactly where you would like them. They shouldn’t slip around much so do not worry about pinning them or anything like that. 

     Iron into place according to directions on heat-bonding product. Continue working in sections until tee is completed. Feel free to stitch down around the letters if you feel led to. I did not!

     The finished shirt! I think its cuter than the original one 

     This technique could be used for countless projects. There are almost endless possibilities. So get creative! 

     Happy Fourth of July!! Go enjoy some fireworks!

50+ PINK Christmas Trees!

You can go so many different ways with the color in so many shades. The creativity is literally limitless. You’ve already broken all the boundaries by selecting a pink tree, you better carry it out in the decor too. That said, a cluster of plain pink trees could definitely hold their own standing naked. You really can’t go wrong!

You are bound to find one you like below, if not 10 or 22 or 37 or all 51.

*Some links go straight to Pinterest rather than a blog. Be sure to check out the blogs though, I discovered some great new ones through their pink trees.

Doesn’t this get your Christmas brain waves going? Most people are saying it’s too early still, but today I’m finally giving in. The low tonight is 26 degrees, which is about as cold as it gets here! I plan to get into my warm pajamas, turn on some Christmas music, make some hot chocolate, maybe even a s’more by candle light & look through the new Southern Living Christmas issue. Gosh I sound like such an old woman! I’m only 21 I promise! Lol. Have a good night!…

Disney World Secrets & Tips

We are heading to Florida in less than 4 days & I am bursting with excitement!! I have spent the last 2 nights pouring over Pinterest & scouring the internet for the best secrets, tips, etc. related to Disney World. I have come up with quite a book full. You may see my Pinterest board where I’ve rounded up all these tips or simply take a look below at what I considered essential, significant, important, or plain interesting. I hope this helps some other families whom are Disney bound this summer. Also, please share any of your own tried & true pointers!

!

DISNEYWORLD

TIME-SAVERS 

Head to the back of the park. When you first arrive at the park, go straight to the back. Most people will start with the first ride they see.

Get your fast passes early on in the day!

Think left. It is most people’s inclinations to go to the right side first, so if you see two lines for a ride, hop in the left one to shave off a little waiting time. If you’re going around World Showcase or the Magic Kingdom, start on the left side going counter-clockwise.

Get in line right before the parades. About an hour before most parades start, people will put a halt on their attraction and ride plans to score a front row parade spot. If you don’t care about getting a primo spot (or about seeing the parade at all), use this time to get in line for big rides.

Shop on your way out. When the park closes, they shut down the rides, but they don’t actually kick you out of the park or close the stores. So spend your valuable time on rides when they’re running, and shop as you make your way to the gates.

GTK 

Chewing gum is not sold anywhere on Walt Disney World property. Plan accordingly.

If you are a veteran ask at City Hall (Magic Kingdom) first thing in the morning if you can participate in the evening Flag Retreat.

If you eat a meal in a park or hotel that you really enjoy, you can ask for the recipe!!!!  {It may be in bulk when you receive it though!}

When riding the ferry boat or the monorail ask the Cast Members if they have any trading cards – they sometimes give them out and there are lots to collect.

CHARACTERS 

You can enter the Animation Building in Disney’s Hollywood Studios for some of the best character meet & greets in Walt Disney World by going through the Art of Disney store (skipping the Animation Academy attraction). Likewise, you can experience Turtle Talk with Crush without doing the Nemo dark ride by entering The Seas pavilion through the gift shop at the exit.

Animal Kingdom – Camp Minnie Micky has a variety of characters in safari gear.

Epcot – find all the original characters in an air conditioned waiting area.

Hollywood Studios – Look in the art of animation for character greetings and at Pixar Place for Woody and Buzz.  The Cars are available for pics but are not animated and don’t sign books.  Phineas and Ferb are right next to them and do a cute little show with the kids waiting in line.

Magic Kingdom – the classic Mickey and a selection of princesses are located in the Town Square as soon as you enter the park, all the way to the right. Storybook Circus now has Minnie, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto, and Ariel is in the new Fantasyland.

Character meet & greet lines are typically shortest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom and typically longest in the Magic Kingdom.

WHERE TO BUY 

Buying pins from Amazon or eBay to trade with Cast Members is the difference between spending $1 per pin and $8-10 per pin.

Disney’s Character Warehouse is an outlet carried heavily discounted and discontinued Disney merchandise. They have two locations off property, on I-Drive near Universal Orlando and on Vineland near Downtown Disney.  The Vineland location is larger and closer to Walt Disney World.

FREE STUFF 

If you are celebrating a special occasion, make sure to pin up a button reflecting the celebration at your resort hotel …
