Little Houses: in progress

I'm hard at work building many little houses!

Singing this song in my head:

"Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same."
(by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1962 Schroder Music Company)

Although...
the houses I have been making do not all look the same!
They might be easier to make if they did...
Thanks for the continued patience of my wonderful customers!

Fall Bucket Lists

I absolutely love the idea of having a Fall bucket list.
You know... a list of all the things you MUST do during Fall.
I was thinking of making my own, but there are so many great ones out there already.

Here are some of the bucket lists I found floating around on Pinterest.

I really love this one from How to Nest for Less:


And a few more...

I still might end up making my own version, but these Fall bucket lists are great inspiration!

Can't wait to start enjoying some Fall fun!
(P.S. Fall officially begins September 22!)

Ramona's Pencil Pouch Makeover

 So... my 10 year old daughter needed a pencil pouch for her binder...
Problem is...we couldn't find one in stock anywhere...
The only pencil pouches we could find had Disney Princesses or Cars on them:(
Not so cool for a 5th grader!

Desperate...
We decided to go with a Cars pencil pouch and give it a makeover!
Here's what we did:
1. Get your pencil pouch.  It should have a plastic, smooth front.
2. Prime!  I'm not sure how the chalkboard paint would stick without the primer, so better safe than sorry.
3. Get some chalkboard paint.  They even have tons of cool colors now.  We went with black because that's what we had.
4. Paint with chalkboard paint.

5. Cover painted area with chalk and erase...then write or draw whatever your heart desires.  The coolest part is you can write notes or change daily to fit your mood!
How easy was that?
Oh...and now, it is cool enough for a 5th grader.  Goes great with her silver glittered binder too!  Totally rockstar!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
