Do Tell Tuesday #38 and Google + Link Up

I know most of you with kids are back in school, but we get to squeeze one more week out of summer. I'll be back to check on everything that's linked up though of course!


Kindergarten Lunches with Del Monte

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS

We're hanging onto the threads of summer over here. I know many of you have kids that have gone back already, but if you're lucky like us and don't start up until after Labor day, I hope you're enjoying your last few days of sleeping in and playing outside all afternoon.

More BIG News!

Today's announcement is a little different than the ones I've made over the last couple of days with working with Cricut and FloraCraft.

But I'm going to tell you a little story first.

You may or may not know that after high school I attended BYU. I was there for 2 1/2 years, studying microbiology. Right around the time I turned 21, I decided to serve a church mission and then spent 18 months serving in Portugal (and Cape Verde.) Within a week of coming home I was back on the campus of BYU and within the next week (though I didn't know it at first) had met the guy I was going to marry.

Vinyl Decorated Sweatshirt

A couple of months ago I got to try out the new Cricut Explore at an event in Portland. Just recently they sent me one and asked me to be part of the the Cricut Design Space Star challenge. So exciting!! It was totally easy to get the program set up on my computer and just start cutting.

Repurposed Shutters

{Ways to re-purpose shutters}

My friends over at Hometalk recently asked me to find some of my favorite ideas for reusing shutters. I had a great time looking through all the Hometalk submissions to find some great examples of ways people have used shutters in home decor. Even in their gardens! 

They've been painted, cut, sanded, and turned into unique organizers, holders and decorations. I hope you'll go check out the whole list -- Click Here!
