Boo!





I found this adorable flyer on a blog, The Tomkat Studio, recently & it inspired me to do a little “booing” of our own. (This means I might be giving us away…oh well!) So, we whipped some baskets up (HA…took about a week to get it all together, but I think it turned out super cute.) The kids kept saying how much fun it was to deliver the baskets, post the Boo sign and run. It’s basically like ding dong ditching. Thought I would share a few photos.

Boo to you,
Shan

I CAN do it!!!


I am so excited to complete my very first digital scrapbook page with my complex photoshop elements software. I want to thank Jessica Sprague for her FREE online tutorial for beginners. It was super easy to follow along. This made my day to be able to do this!!

Scrap On,

Teacher Mini Clipboard Gifts

{This is a re-post from last year.}





Lately, whenever I do a project or change something up in my house, I hear from my children, “where did you get that idea?” My answer seems to always be, “on a blog.” So much that the last time my son asked me, I didn’t even have to answer. He immediately said, “I know, on a BLOG!”

I have gotten so many great ideas from blogs.  It literally has made a huge impact on my life, apparently.

So here is my latest inspiration project due to fellow blogger Marta Writes.  She is extremely creative and I used her mini clipboards idea to give to my kid’s teachers this week for Teacher Appreciation Week. She has great instructions on how to make them with wonderful photos. You can see them here. Thanks Marta!

Blogs are awesome,

Thanks Nesting Place!

The Nester’s Wall, My Inspiration Photo 

I’m finally posting one of the projects I’ve been working on. Thanks to Nesting Place I have been inspired to do some more beautifying of my home. I LOVE her blog! She has made me look at things in a very different way. Plus she is frugal like me! I now “shop at home” and plan to do some window “mistreatments.” If you want to know what those terms mean you will just have to go to her very cute blog and check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

All of the frames used in my photo above were not being used & now they are! All I needed to buy was a can of spray paint! Gotta love that!

Paint on,
Shan
