Cowboy Beans Recipe using the Wonderbag for Cooking

Easy Cowboy Beans #Wonderbag #pmedia #ad

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and WonderBag, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #WonderBag is the season where our meals as a family get heartier and we seem to start settling into our house and relaxing earlier. Being a working mom, I especially LOVE meals that I can start in the morning before work and are finished when I get home from work. Yes, I can use a crockpot, but there's still that sense of uneasiness when I leave my house in the morning with an appliance plugged in, on high, and running.Today I'm sharing with you a tasty recipe … [Read more...]

DIY Fabric Drawer Liners

red dresser with blue and white fabric liner

We've been working off and on for months now on our son's "big boy" bedroom. I'm one of those people that can literally take months to get my thoughts together to get a room completed and I do a little at a time, but this room has taken way longer than planned once I started and found out I was pregnant very shortly after. As we're nearing the end of our transformation, I thought I'd start sharing bits and pieces of his room with you, starting with the dresser and nightstand makeover we did using Annie Sloan chalk paint and then how we used Online Fabric Store fabrics to create DIY Fabric Drawer Liners for an added special touch.You may … [Read more...]

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Dresser Makeovers

Finished red chalk paint dresser from The Cards We Drew

I have this dresser and nightstand we purchased years ago when I first started college and needed some makeshift furniture. At the time, I had my Dad stain the drawers a cherry color and they went on that way for years. When we moved into our new house about 4 years ago, we decided to try to paint this same dresser/nightstand pair with white latex paint. We sanded, painted, and sanded some more and somehow the dressers started to discolor, the wood grain started showing through the white paint, and the paint stuck and made the drawers hard to open at times. We only painted one and decided to hold off on the other. Today I'm showing why I'd … [Read more...]

You know you have a lot of craft supplies when you can shop your own craft room and make new discoveries for easy projects. I was looking for ideas this weekend and came across these cute little paper clips I got from my SNAP Conference swag bag that Pick Your Plum provided. I haven't done anything with them yet, so I decided to make Easy Paper Clip Spiders as a fun 5 minute Kids Halloween Craft. They literally are SO easy to make and my son thinks they're pretty cool (he keeps trying to scare us with them).WHAT YOU NEED:Paper Clips with some kind of place to attach things at the top OR add your own piece of cardboard to the top for … [Read more...]
