Centerpiece Wednesday- Life is GOOD!

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

So sorry I'm late posting Centerpiece Wednesday again :( life has been crazy busy but sooo good! First up my nephew Weston is doing AMAZING!! (He is the one who was in a horrible car accident back in May and experienced traumatic major brain injury, broken jaw, punctured lung, received a tracheotomy, feeding tube, metal plates in his jaw and is now blind in one eye) but he is truly a walking miracle! We were down in St. George visiting him for the first time since the accident. On Monday they did find out that he is blind in one eye :( but he said it's ok...I can still see out if the other one...he is so upbeat and positive. He just got all the wires removed off of his mouth (his jaw had been wired shut for 6 weeks) you can read all about it HERE then on Monday we hosted a huge neighborhood block party! It was a blast! Yesterday I worked on creating a google doc for all the boys parents in my Cub Scout den!..LOL yes I am now a bear den leader and I do not really know what I am doing yet! Cray Cray! But Life Is sooo Good!

Tip toe through my garden

Saturday, July 19, 2014

My gardens are looking so pretty right now I just wanted to share it with all of you.

This is actually and hanging pot filled with lots of colorful flowers...we bought it around Mother's Day from Costco and when I took the picture it looked really good but recently we've had some hot days and it is suffering a little bit :(


I love poppies

And hydrangeas


This is the front yard ...look at my man spraying for weeds...he is the gardener man

Remember when my hubby and daughter made these garden beds for me for Mothers Day you can see it here. This year we have green peas, green beans, thyme, green onions and lots of tomatoes.

We also planted this pear tree just last year and we have quite a crop growing...I'm super excited!

How is your garden growing this year?

Fashion Friday- Yellow, Black and White

Bumble Bee or fun fashion look? You decide but im going with fun fashion look :) I can't remember where I found this cute striped skirt..Walmart? Target? but it was super cheap and it is super comfortable and non wrinkly!
Fashion Friday, fashion for 50 something's
I paired it with this Jcrew outlet cream colored blouse with a black stripe all around the collar and down the me the look of a longer torso.
The yellow bubble necklace is from Walmart! Yellow gold sweater is from Jcrew outlet

Once again I belted the blouse because it hung too long on my short torso.

I love the length of this skirt not too short and not too long...seriously this length is so hard to find! Everything is sooo short!

Do you like my sandals? I think they are so "chic" and mostly fun. Very comfortable and a low heel but still have that sexy look don't you think?

Of course I have to show off my grandma glasses

There you have it my bumble bee Fun Fashion Look!

Popcorn Vendor Tray Tutorial

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I was asked by our stake Young Women's camp director from our church to see if I could come up with a cute popcorn vendor serve popcorn to the young women while up at camp. I was up for the task and began my search to find something that would be sturdy enough to hold lots of bags of popcorn and yet not be too heavy hanging around the neck. This is what I came it with!

I happened to be at Costco checking out and saw a huge stack of these canteloupe boxes and asked if I could have 4 of them. FREE Ka-Ching!

Then I hopped over to Lowes to get some spray paint. I really love Valspar spray paint it covers so nicely. I had some white spray paint in the garage but it was super runny...Valspar wins for me!

I sprayed the boxes on the outsides and tops in red white and blue..I did not spray the insides.

I found the free clip art on the internet...I like the white stripes with the yellow popcorn and how it looks combined with the popcorn word clipart...also free clipart. You can right click on the popcorn image and save to your computer and put four on a page and print out.

Once you print your images...cut them out and use a glue stick to adhere them to the boxes.

Make sure you get the glue all around the edges otherwise it starts lifting

I was racking my brain to come up with a strap that would be comfortable around the neck and cheap. I was just about to buy some canvas fabric at Walmart when I spotted shelving liner stuff! It is soft, easy to cut and tied onto the boxes perfectly!

It comes in a variety of colors and with the left overs I can line a few drawers!

Even my teenage nephews thought the were so cool and thought I had bought them! So....I would say

"Nailed it"! LoL

I can't wait to see them being used up at camp and I am going to figure out other ways to use them here at home....I see an outdoor movie night in my future!
