Painted Rainbow Sign

Back on April 3rd it was National Rainbow Day, so I created this painted rainbow art for The Girl Creative. If you didn't catch it over there, here it is again. Even though May is winding down, it still works!

 You'll need paint in as many colors as you want, a foam brush and a wood board.

Yay! I get to toss another giveaway at you to make Monday morning a little more exciting! Today we're talking about Younique Fiber Lashes.

So, if you're on Facebook I'm sure you're starting to see posts pop up about Younique makeup products, specifically close-up eyelash pictures of people you don't even know :) I was kinda skeptical, especially because some of them looked a little spider-y (know what I mean?

Mom Time

A lot of times I post kids crafts and activities that we've done around here. I hope you've been inspired to do some creating with your kids, even if you haven't done exactly what I posted about.

Parenting isn't just about crafts though.

National No Socks Day

{DIY Pedicures so you can go barefoot today}

Since today is National No Socks Day, I figured it was the perfect time to round up a bunch of ways to make those toes and feet all pretty.

Mother's Day Gift with Kid's Art

Last year I made this potholder with my kids as a Mother's Day gift for my mom. This is a fun and easy way to turn some of your kids' artwork into a useful gift for grandma, mom, teachers or friends!  Ink Effects paints are used like regular paint then transferred to fabric with an iron.

World's Toughest Job

I received a card to review, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Mother's Day is coming next Sunday-- I'm excited that I get to spend it with my kids this year, since last year Steve and I were on our trip in Portugal

There's still time to put together a custom card for Mom this Sunday. You can even have it delivered right to her! In just a few minutes I was able to add pictures from our Christmas photo shoot to a personalized card.

Entertainment Center Craft Storage

A while ago I did a guest post at The Cards We Drew when Abbey had her baby.  I wrote a post on my blog the same day about how I actually painted the entertainment center, but this post will show you how I organized the inside. It's also reminding me that I already need to reorganize a few things in there.
