{ fix up's }

Here's two projects I been working on this week. The first are these chalk/dry erase easel boards. The girls love to use these. I bought them 2 years ago at Jo ann's for $10 each, a great deal.....but, I've never been crazy about the primary colors and the dry erase side of the boards were coming apart...........so I decided to paint the entire board with chalk paint and take out the dry erase board. I replaced the dry erase board with wire and clothes pins so the girls could hang their art work up. I personalized them for the girls by adding a crown to the top with their initial. I painted the crown and the clothes pins with their favorite colors. Addy=purple and mayce=blue!


The second project is this green frame mirror. We received this as a gift when we got married.....9 years ago.....I loved it, but recently decided it needed an update/change!!!! I can't just leave stuff alone......it's a problem I have..... So I decided while I was on the chalk paint kick, I would paint this in chalk paint too! I think it turned out super cute!

{ spring jars }

I've been craving spring............the sun has been shinning just enough to make me want more! I can't wait to start planting ...and growing..........seeing green instead of brown .....so, today I decided to make these spring scene jars for inside the house, bring a little spring cheerfulness in! This idea was inspired by Rhonna. Check out her jars here!

{ one of the best gifts ever... }

This is by far one of the best gifts we have ever gotten for the girls! My parents dropped it off and set it up this weekend. One of their friends gave it to them for the girls! SO NICE!!! AND FREE!! We have had it for 4 days now and they have played on it almost non-stop. We're going to dig a hole soon and make it ground level so it's a little safer!!! But the GIRLS are LOVING IT!!!!!!!

If you've never checked out The Graphics Fairy you should. She has some really fun images. I found her a few months ago and I've been using her images since! The best part..... the images are free!!!! I LOVE funky jewelry, so this is going to be one of my new fav's! *wink* Have a safe and fun weekend!
