Free Printable Floral Gift Tags and Coordinating Lined Note Cards
I actually created these for the SNAP conference I attended last week in Salt Lake City. My secret sister had mint green listed as one of her favorite colors...I thought this would be a fun way to incorporate it. I used both these free printable floral gift tags and coordinating lined note cards on each of her gifts to dress them up a bit. Download both of these items below.

When I was a kid, my sister-in-law regularly made me sweet little clothes for my dolls (I was a later-in-life child, so my sister-in-law was a bit older than me...and already married to my brother at the time). She was very good at sewing and could make cuter clothes than were available in stores. On the back insides of the bloomers and dresses, she would sew in a label that read "Handmade Especially for Kristi". I loved those little tags...they made me feel so special, y'all. I've always wanted to make a printable of that nature, so here we are. Download these below...and make someone feel pretty special.

These DIY Pom Pom Trimmed Drapes make our breakfast area so cheerful! They were made from four tablecloths and were super easy on the budget. Check out how they came together below.

I've been over in my parents' town a lot lately. Their Walmart seems to have a much better selection of Pioneer Woman goodies than ours. When I ran across these Pioneer Woman aqua buffalo check tablecloths, I went weak in the knees. I knew immediately I wanted to make them into drapery panels for our breakfast room. I loved the drop cloth ones that were in here previously, but the way they puddled on the floor, meant they attracted alllllll the dog hair. All. Of. It. 

So, we were ready for some ch-ch-ch-changes in this space.

I've been wanting to do some fun apple monograms for a few years now.

Happy to finally have these ready for you to use this year. These free printable teacher monograms are perfect Teacher Appreciation Week and end of the year gifts, too.

Crossbody Water Bottle Holder

This Crossbody Water Bottle Holder post and its shop have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PureLife40pk #CollectiveBias

I loved this Crossbody Water Bottle Holder so much after I made it for my son, I made one for myself, too. They've proven to be fantastic for holding our H20 during our activities and even just driveway play.
Crossbody Water Bottle Holder | Make this fun and simple bottle holder to keep everyone hydrated! Great for theme park-wear, long walks, and all of the times when you need a bottle of water all the time!
My son has used his new Crossbody Water Bottle Holder so much, I had to see how fun it was. So, I made one for myself and use it on my walks (and plan to use it on our trip to see that big mouse in Florida this summer). It's a wonderful way to keep water on your person and not get dehydrated while in the midst of activities (and the Texas heat if you live in our part of the world). See how easy this was to make below (and check out a special deal I'm sharing on Nestlé® Pure Life® Water from Sam's Club, too).

Chalk-Style Painted Salt and Pepper Shakers

These Chalk-Style Painted Salt and Pepper Shakers go great with my newly made-over dinette set. I scored them at the thrift store for a buck and some change, y'all. 

Chalk-Style Painted Salt and Pepper Shakers: the perfect thrift store before and after project!
Salt and pepper shakers are some of my favorite things to hunt for at the thrift store...especially wooden ones that take paint easily. I've been on a Salvation Army kick for my thrifting fun lately (G-Dub has gotten a wee bit spendy lately), and I've found so many goodies...including these wonderfully shaped salt and pepper shakers. I love all of their curves and grooves...perfect for chalk paint and a little antique wax love.

Mason Jar Lid Bird Feeder

This post for a Mason Jar Bird Feeder is sponsored by General Mills, 
but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

This Mason Jar Lid Bird Feeder is such a fun and simple little project to bring some tweets to all of your feathered friends. This is a great craft to do with the kiddos, too.
Mason Jar Lid Bird Feeder | Make this simple bird feeder inside of a canning lid. This is a great project to do with kiddos.
We are total bird nerds, y'all. When we bought this house a year ago, one of our favorite things was the sheer volume of trees on the property. Sitting on the back porch or in the sunroom are the two best places for birdwatching through all those trees. We've been wanting to add some bird feeders out there to draw in even more feathered friends.

These Mason Jar Bird Feeders totally fit the bill. They were so fun to make with the kiddos, too. They love doing projects of this kind together as a family. This one is perfect to celebrate Dia del Niño, if you're looking for a family-friendly project. This bird feeder incorporates Cheerios Original Yellow Box Cereal, which is a part of Cereal con Cariño. CLICK HERE FOR COUPONS AND OTHER COOL Dia del Niño IDEAS FROM GENERAL MILLS!

Table and Chairs Makeover with Chalk-Style Paint

This post for my Chalk-Style Paint Table and Chairs Makeover 
is brought to you by Plaid Crafts. 
I was supplied all paint, waxes, brushes, and loads of inspiration for this project.

I've been wanting to make over my kitchen table for eons, y'all. I finally just bit the bullet and I couldn't be any happier. I went all Monica Gellar style and painted my chairs in several colors and the table in another. See how it all came together below.

Table and Chairs Makeover with Chalk-Style Paint | Multi-colored chalk style paints and white wax make this vintage piece really pop! Check out the full makeover at ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com.
Whhhhhhy did I wait so long to tackle this project, y'all? It has completely changed this space and made me fall in love with my beat up 14+ year old table all over again. And with Waverly's chalk-style paint, there was minimal prep. That's probably my favorite part. Check out the makeover process below.

Weathered Sign Tutorial

I make a small portion when these links are used, at no additional cost to you.

This simple weathered sign tutorial is perfect for any season or saying. 
I created this one for Easter, with one of my favorite verses.

Weathered Sign Tutorial | Use this simple paint technique for a simple, weathered sign.
I will say, this tutorial is just an example of this technique. I love the way the paint turned out, but I honestly wish I had used a different font...this one seems just slightly on the trite side for a scripture of this magnitude. I was going for more of a handwritten look, but this feels like one wrung up the ladder from Comic Sans, y'all. But, I am happy with the technique and how well it aged this particular sign. I wanted it to look worn from the outside in and this seemed to have achieved this particular look.

I love tassels. And I love garlands. Why not marry them in a fun ombre pattern, right?
This little craft was really easy and I am pretty much in love with how it turned out. 
I have draped a few of these all over the house, y'all! 
Ombre Tassel Garland | Cute garlands that are easy to create using a self-striping yarn. Fun and simple photo tutorial.
I'm *slightly* obsessed with yarn crafts lately. I actually grew up with yarn crafts and they always hold a special spot in my heart (my great aunt had me making those plastic canvas tissue box covers by the truckload at an early age). This ombre tassel garland is my new obsession...I can't quit making them! Check out my complete tutorial below.

I just love a good tassel, y'all. For years, I used a piece of cardboard to make one, but I just recently found this cool acrylic template and I'm never going back to cardboard. Check out The Easiest Way to Make a Tassel!

The Easiest Way to Make a Tassel | Use this easy method to make fast (and pretty) work of tassels.
If you're reading this, there's a good chance you may have made a tassel with a cardboard template. The cardboard templates are good for about one or two uses, then they bend and have to be replaced. Sometimes cutting cardboard pieces for endless tassel-making can get old (because, I'm all about endless tassel-making, y'all). Check out how easy this nifty little tool I found is to use!

Job 19:25 is one of my faves..."But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last." I love the hymn that was created surrounding this verse, too. I truly love singing it year round, but it holds a special place in my heart during the Easter season. Grab this free printable highlighting this verse/hymn below.

Upcycled Easter Door Decor

This Upcycled Easter Door Decor is one of the easiest thangs I've ever put together, y'all.
It's also a part of the Thrifty Style Team series this month.

Upcycled Easter Door Decor | Thrift store finds can make the perfect seasonal decor! This post is filled with lots of thrift store Easter ideas.
Every month, I'm fully aware that my monthly Thrifty Style Team series is coming...and *usually* I get behind and have to scramble to create something for the series (honestly, I do my best creating when I'm rushed, but it's still nice to actually be prepared every now and then). This month, I actually got it together. I grabbed the outer part of this wreath at a thrift store well before Valentine's day...and knew exactly what to use it for (don't you love it when that happens?). So, believe it or not...I was actually prepared this month! I have to say, this is probably the simplest tutorial I've ever done...it's like one step, y'all. Check it out below...along with lots of fun projects from my bloggy friends.

Ahhh, spring is definitely in the air these days (or is that ragweed?)! Whichever...the seasons are definitely changing. I created this fun and whimsical Free Printable Watercolor Spring Banner to kick off the season. AND, it's got a neat little feature...it's dimensional! The letters can be layered onto the banner with mounting squares to give it some extra POP! I've created a flat one, too, if you'd prefer that method.

Free Spring Watercolor Printable

This free spring watercolor printable (who doesn't love a Vespa, right?) is available in both vertical and horizontal designs. And if flowers on the front of an aqua moped don't scream spring, I don't know what does.

Free Spring Watercolor Printable: Pretty aqua moped with loads of beautiful spring blooms. Available in both vertical and horizontal. Instant downloads.
I honestly had been wanting to do a vintage truck design for spring (similar to the one I did for newsletter subscribers during the holidays with the VW Bug and Christmas tree). But, I couldn't get flowers to lay correctly in the bed of the truck in the design...it looked like the truck was actually growing the flowers. While that was interesting and all...it just looked totally wrong. And then a Vespa came to mind! It's like the perfect little spring scenario, right?

Since one of my readers recently requested more horizontal designs, this one is actually available in both styles below.

In Texas, spring hits ridiculously early...so I'm trying to just embrace it and enjoy it (as compared to previous years of grumbling because it's 90 degrees in March). I'm going ahead and putting out all of the Easter decor. These new watercolor Easter printables are perfect for my living room...I'm thinking of rotating them out all season long. I bundled them all together for $5 in my shop.

DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow

This DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow (with a sweet little bunny) is a fun little Easter craft. If you've never done appliqué, this is the perfect project to get your feet wet. It utilizes a simple basic stitch on the sewing machine (you can sew by hand, if you prefer). I have the free printable appliqué template below, as well. And who can resist the addition of a yarn pom pom bunny tail?

DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow: Sweet little bunny pillow made from a canvas drop cloth and men's shirt. Free printable bunny template available, too.
Are y'all tired of my pillow tutorials yet? Honestly, I'm such a throw pillow hoarder that I may never tire of creating them (but please don't leave en masse). This is another super budget-friendly project...I used an old men's plaid shirt (the shirt was old, not the man who wore it...ahem), and of course, my go-to drop cloth for fabric. Check out the tutorial for this DIY Frayed Edge Appliqué Pillow below (it's on another easy envelope pillow cover!).
