Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 20

TGIF! In my many trips to Hobby Lobby for supplies for the baby sprinkle, I was shocked by how much Christmas decor and craft items were available in JULY. Then I thought, people who would be making/selling Christmas decorations would need to start crafting now. I ran across a cute decoration for a front door on Pinterest. There isn’t a website or directions to go with it as it was an image “uploaded by user,” but it looks simple enough. This would be an easy to store decoration because of its size. Sometimes I feel like wreaths are just so huge and take up a lot of space!

Guess this means another trip to Hobby Lobby. Happy crafting! Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for visiting.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Favorite Pin Friday | Volume 13

July…you guys, it’s July! Where did January-June go?! Makes me sad how time goes by so fast. As a kid you thought school would never be out for summer and then summer flew by. Now the entire year is a blur. Are we all just too busy to enjoy each day? Who knows. Maybe that’s too deep of a topic for a Friday. May revisit that in the future. Luckily, my university is observing today as a holiday so I get to enjoy a 3-day weekend with the hubs (and family and friends). I plan on soaking in every minute of it.

I find Favorite Pin Fridays inspirational, because it gives me time to share things with you I think are cool or something I want to try/do. Today is about the unorthodox idea of painting half a wall…why not use paint to create a unique element in a room? It’s cheap, it’s relatively easy, heck…make a party out of it! Who says you have to have chair railing in order to do a two-toned paint job? Move passed the traditional and dive into something more contemporary.

Clearly I also have an obsession with gray. I didn’t realize until I dropped these photos in that 4 out of the 6 are gray tones haha Anyway…take away the idea, not the color examples. Get crazy and do fun colors, especially in children’s rooms or playrooms.

Enjoy the 4th. Eat too much and don’t feel guilty. You have until Labor Day to work it off 😉

Until next post…xoxo Becca
