June Posts Round Up

in Round-Up

Summer is suppose to be relaxing, sometimes I think it’s anything but relaxing. Fun yes, but relaxing no. I feel like we are always on the go trying to cram in as much fun as possible before the kids head back to school. I know you’re just as busy as I am so I rounded up my June posts all in one place. If you missed any last month you’ll find them here. And yes, I’ve slowed down a bit for Summer, but the projects are still coming.

Patriotic Printables

in 4th of July, Printable

Printables are the quickest and easiest way I know to decorate for a holiday. Just print, slap in a frame and you’re good to go. It’s like instant art. Use one or use many to create a wall full of art. Need some last minute party decor? I’ve got you covered. I’ve gathered some of my favorite Patriotic Printables to share with you. I hope you’ll find a few you want to use.

4th of July Parade Bags

by leanneja on June 29, 2015 · 4 comments

in 4th of July, Crafts

We’re a parade lovin’ family. But as much as we love them there is also a lot of waiting. The kids always seem to get hungry and want to eat everything that passes by. We will have a total of nine kids at the parade this year and I don’t want to be handing out food the whole time. I decided making Parade Bags for each kid would be the best solution.

I wrote this post nearly 2 years ago for a Studio 5 segment but never published it. It was about the time we were moving and it somehow got lost in the shuffle. It was on the air but I can’t find the segment now, so I just have the post to share. I’m going to share it in 2 posts because I think dealing with clutter can be a little overwhelming for some people. Letting go of clutter is a process, which means the time frame is different for everyone. If you struggle with clutter I hope this post will help you be able to find the meaning behind it and be able to let it go.

Patriotic Mantel

in 4th of July, Crafts, Decorating, Mantels

The 4th of July is my favorite holiday. What’s not to love? There’s parades, barbecues and picnics, carnivals, swimming, hiking, fireworks, family, and the weather is awesome. I love decorating for the 4th too. There’s just something about decorating with red, white, and blue that makes me happy and sentimental. Every 4th of July brings back memories of the past Summers celebrating with my family and friends. We’ve had a busy Summer so far so I’m just getting around to decorating the house. I had to start with the Patriotic mantel first.

3 Quick and Easy Summer Treats

by leanneja on June 22, 2015 · 7 comments

in Uncategorized

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and  PEOPLE StyleWatch® and InStyle® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Summer4Me http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

My husband is only home 2-5 days a month which leaves me in charge of the kids and home most of the time. Carving out a little “Me Time” can be difficult, but with Summer here I am determined to find some time just for me. I would love to take a tropical vacation and escape from it all if only for a day or two but being realistic means taking some time to look through my favorite magazines might be the only escape I get. I found some alone time and drove to Target to pick up PEOPLE StyleWatch® and InStyle® magazines for a mini escape. But what would a little escape be without a little indulgence? I am sharing my favorite 3 Quick and Easy Summer Treats to snack on while enjoying a little “Me Time”.

Disney Shadow Box Savings Bank

A month of Disney

We love Disneyland! And since moving closer we’re able to visit more often. Yay for us! It’s not inexpensive though and I want the kids to help out a little with the extras we might purchase while we’re there. We made a Disney Shadow Box Savings Bank so the kids could contribute to our trip and watch their money grow. It gets them more excited about the trip and who doesn’t like to count money? I’m excited to participate in R and R Workshop‘s Month of Disney and share this fun project with you.

4th of July Scavenger Hunt

I love the 4th of July/Independence Day. I feel such a sense of country and patriotism and love spending the day with my family. We always have a fun filled day and try to fill it with as much celebrating as possible. There’s always something going on but I thought it would be nice to add a little more fun to the day. Kids love scavenger hunts and marking things off so I thought a 4th of July Scavenger Hunt would be fun.

Pool Noodle Boats

I shared these fun boats on The Pinning Mama a couple weeks ago, but I didn’t want you to miss out if you didn’t see them there. It seems like almost any activity we think of during Summer involves water in some way. These Pool Noodle Boats are the perfect craft and activity for a hot Summer day. We had a ball making and racing the boats and I think you will too.

May Posts Round Up

in Monthly Highlights

Wow! I can tell I’m already in Summer mode. It’s already June 11th and I haven’t published the May Posts Round Up yet. I hope your Summer is off to a great start. It seems the first few weeks of Summer are always the busiest for me then it slows down a bit and I am able to get more accomplished. May flew by for me, there was so much going on and since I am the only parent around right now I was a bit overwhelmed. I was able to get a few things accomplished to share with you here in case you missed the original posts. Click on the links for more info and full tutorials. I hope you find a few things that will inspire you to be creative, get organized, and maybe try a new recipe.
