That time some bloggers FINALLY came to Ohio!

habitat house pic

A few weeks ago I was heading down to Cincinnati to visit my brother for the weekend. The evening before we headed down I saw on Sawdust and Embryos Facebook page that they were going to be in Cincinnati for the weekend for a blogger Habitat for Humanity event sponsored by GMC and that they needed help! I was SO excited to finally have some blogger pals heading to Ohio (nothing EVER happens in Ohio!), so I contacted Bethany and asked her if I could help out and where to meet. Bright and early Sunday morning me and my future sister in law headed into downtown Cincinnati to check out what the girls were up to! Working on the home was Taryn … [Read more...]

T Mobile Free Tablet Data {yes, you read that right…FREE DATA!!}

TMobile Tablet with Free Data

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TabletTrio #CollectiveBias Just recently I got a new phone and made the mistake of not connecting my phone to the Wifi from my house. You know what happened? I inadvertently blew through 3G of data in two weeks because I hadn't used Wifi ONCE...and you know what else happened? I now owe MORE money for my monthly plan because of it. Let's face it...being connected to the Internet these days is EXPENSIVE! But for a techie blogger like myself, I pay the price because it's a necessity. However, a lot of people can't justify the cost of it … [Read more...]

Hot Shot® Insecticides Sweepstakes and Pest Update

hot shot ant and roach killer

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hot Shot® Insecticides. So not too long ago I told you about this terrible problem we have EVERY summer where little ants make their way into our home and meet their demise. It's tiresome to deal with every year and it never seems to end! This year we got a little mid summer relief though shortly after my blog post in July...and while I can't be positive it's 100% due to Hot Shot® Insecticides, I'm fairly certain that the Hot Shot® brand helped out more than anything else we'd tried to date. See, we used to have this area on the back of our house/around our AC where we had a flower bed … [Read more...]

Always thinking ahead though, I like to find safe and easy family favorites to celebrate summer end and do it in as little time as possible! Today I'm sharing how I made yummy … [Read more...]

You Are My Sunshine DIY Reusable Gift Bag

DIY Reusable Gift Bag from The Cards We Drew

Today sharing my DIY Reusable Gift Bag idea! A few weeks ago I was at Target and came across these cute straw bags in the dollar section for $3.00 each. I picked two of them up thinking that they would be great, easy DIY projects for when the time came! The whole idea started because I'm hosting a baby shower next month and I wanted to come up with cute little gifts for the winners of some of the games we're going to play. So I decided to use the Hazel and Ruby stencil to make this bag. Here's what you need: Child Play Stencil Mask from Hazel and Ruby $3 Tote bag from Target Sharpie Permanent Colored Markers Hazel and … [Read more...]

Framed Apple Specimen Art

Be You-Nique Apple Art

I have a fun Teacher Gift Idea to share with you today that I originally shared last spring over at Tatertots and Jello! I wanted to think of something kind of different for the first day of school and something a teacher could enjoy for years to come. So I bypassed a food, drink, or plant idea and decided on a good old fashioned DIY project that is easy enough ANYONE can do it! No expensive tools needed…just some time and creativity! So I made this Framed Apple Specimen Art for a teacher’s classroom… The idea is pretty simple and you just need a few things to create this project: Cut It Out frame Craft paint in red and green for … [Read more...]
