One of my favorite recipes in the spring happens to be Strawberry Shortcake...simple and delicious. So I thought, why not kick it up a notch and try something different … [Read more...]

DIY Chalky Finish Outdoor Table Makeover

chalk paint striped table

This post is sponsored by DecoArt, all thoughts and opinions are my own. We've had this old TV table on our front porch in all it's unpainted glory since last fall. I started to put it out for a garage sale when I realized it would make the perfect "in between" table for my adirondack chairs on the front porch. So I kept it. Eventually months went by and the table has been an eyesore for a while. So this weekend I decided to give the table a quick makeover using DecoArt's Chalky Finish paint in Yesteryear and Vintage. What you need: Paint brush Wet rag/towel Yesteryear and Vintage Chalky Paint from DecoArt Tape I … [Read more...]

Mother’s Day EOS Gift Ideas

Mother's Day EOS Gift Ideas from The Cards We Drew

I seriously can't believe it's May and Mother's Day is right around the corner. For me, on Mother's Day, I really just want to relax with my kids, cookout, get some yard work done/flowers planted, and enjoy the day. My husband tries to give me less to do with the kids (handles more diaper changes and sippy cup refills) and sometimes he surprises me with a small, unnecessary, gift. If you have a more elaborate Mother's Day planned or give your friends little reminders that they're phenomenal moms, then you may like these Mother's Day EOS Gift ideas!! All the printables are FREE and can be downloaded HERE from my friend, Carli, at … [Read more...]

Toy Room Makeover from Target

playroom after

This post is sponsored by Target, all opinions are my own. One of the most heinous rooms of my house has always been the room my guests see immediately to the right of my front door as they walk in. I believe it's meant to be a small dining room, but it's transformed from a dumping room, to an office, to a kids toy room over the years and's been quite an eyesore. Last year we got a small couch and rug for the room, but it still just became a dumping ground for college diplomas, old pictures, and junk. Determined to break the cycle, I headed to my local Target last weekend to get organized and turn my toy room into a space my … [Read more...]
