So recently I was looking around at some of my favorite blogs and I found this project. I promptly pinned it to Pinterest of course. I also found a post called the Pinterest Challenge. Basically it is challenging you to actually DO some of the projects you have pinned! Great idea! I decided to take on this challenge.
To begin this project I went to Wal Mart and scooped up some plastic kids toy animals, a few garden items, and some plastic fruit. I decided to go with the silver and bronze spray paint this time instead of colored spray paint which would also be cute if you knew what colors you needed.
I spray painted a few gold. I love the way the animals turned out! They will be so cute on a bookshelf!
The silver ones turned out good as well I especially liked the hippo!
This is a zebra although it looks a lot like a horse!
Love the HIPPO!!!
I hope you take on this project! It was so simple and cheap. A few other places to look for items to spray paint are the clearance isle at Hobby Lobby and the Dollar Tree.
I encourage you to take on the PINTEREST CHALLENGE!
This was one of the most fun performances of the night in my opinion! Bruno Mars killed it! Also this is my new favorite song! Who was your favorite performer of the night? Leave a comment below!
So I am sure many of you have heard of the new trend called Pinterest. It is the latest craze online and of course I jumped on the bandwagon! I have to say that it is the most genius idea that someone came up with! Basically the way it works is that anyone can “pin” a picture with a link to the site where they saw the picture onto Pinterest. Once they do that others can “pin” the picture/idea to their “boards” that are in categories. All a board is, is a place on your homepage where all of your pins are saved so that you can look at them later. It sounds complex but it really isn’t I promise. It has anything and everything you could ever imagine on this site! Great for anyone who loves to cook, craft, throw parties, travel, or brides. Tons of ideas that I would never think of… Here are some things I have pinned to my boards that I thought I would share. The recipe’s on here are ones that I have tried and loved:
This is a game that is great for kids on a rainy day. It is supposed to be like a spy trying to get through laser’s without touching them. You put painters tape (so you don’t mess up your walls!) or crepe paper in different area’s of your hallway. The tape is the “laser” so tell the kids to try not to touch it! Brilliant!!!
This is an old entertainment unit someone turned into a play kitchen! So adorns! I love it.
Freeze prizes in some colored water and let the kids hammer out the toys. Great time waster on a hot day!
Slime! Abby and I made this one day after she watched Flubber the movie with Robin Williams. It is super easy and kid friendly! Little to no mess! Great Great Great! She thought I was so cool because I knew how to make slime. You can make any color!
I used to love the movie Peter Pan. This is soooo easy to do! Cut out an image of Peter Pan and tape it to a lamp to get Peter’s shadow!
Great no mess activity! Place a blank paper on the table. Fill a ziploc bag with some paint and get all the air out. Then tape the edges to the table to hold it in place and avoid leaks then let the kids finger paint! Who comes up with this stuff??
Milk carton igloo! Wish I had one when I was a kid! Save up those empty milk cartons moms!
Spiced Apple Cider! Just like Starbucks! Made this over Christmas and it was a huge hit! Made the house smell great too!
Best sugar cookie recipe ever! Kellam and I have made these at least 10 times since I found the recipe around New Years!
Amazing Vinaigrette Chicken with basil, feta, and red pepper or I put tomato on mine! A must try!
Really good and super easy Potato Soup. Great for a cold day!
Who knew they had mirror spray paint? Love these painted shells. Would look great in a clear vase!
Glue branches on a candle. I did this and it was beautiful! My dad loved it. He says it is a manly candle now haha!
Did this one day in class! Super easy and a boredom buster! Just draw one wavy line across the page and then place 8 evenly spaced dots on the line. Then connect 1 to 2 then 2 to 3 and so on. Just keep building. Looks cool colored or not!
This is on my to do list for Kellam’s Batchelorette Party. Looks super easy and so cute!
Love this idea! Glue some Lego’s to a board. Then put one Lego on your key ring. When you come in the door just snap your keys onto the board! Brilliant!
Love this! Take a picture of you at your wedding. On your anniversary hold the framed wedding picture and take another picture. Next year hold the 1 year picture and take another for your 2 year anniversary. It just keeps building! Such a great memory keeper!
My only prob with Pinterest is that you have to be invited by someone who has an account already. So if you would like to be added just shoot me an email at email@example.com and I will add you. It is so worth it and its FREE! Why not?
Hey guys! So in honor of it being Friday the 13th, I thought I would post I flashback I experienced last night… Your favorite girl and mine, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. This is an original romantic comedy. This movie wrote the book for all future romantic comedies. I love Julia because she is a Georgia girl! Here are some of my favorite stills from the movie.
Hope you have a great Friday! Working on new posts. Check back soon!
This week my Mom and I were on Pinterest and came across these presh turkey cookies!
My Mom teaches 4K and Thursday they are having their annual Thanksgiving Feast. We thought these turkey’s would be an excellent addition to their plates. So we set out to make them on our own since the directions were no longer online… The body is a vanilla oreo and the face is a bite size Nutter Butter. Obviously the tail is 7 candy corn. The eyes are white and black icing and the beak is a half of a candy corn. We made a waddle out of strawberry flavored Fruit Roll Ups. We used Wilton’s Royal Icing recipe to “glue” it together and for the white of the eyes. It worked great and I think they look fabulous. This is how our version turned out..
If you have not heard of Pinterest you MUST check it out right now! I am obsessed! Tons of ideas for anything you can imagine!
If I don’t talk to you all before Thanksgiving… Happy Turkey Day!
