Super Easy DIY Fall and Halloween Farmhouse Signs

This post contains affiliate links.

Today is the first day of fall, woohoo!!!  I love fall!  I especially love the month of September because you get to enjoy school being in, the cooler weather and not have to worry about the holidays (that's a completely different story come October!).  Last week I made up 6 different farmhouse signs for a boutique and I thought I would show you all the different designs and styles that I did. I designsed all of them differently but made them all the same way :).  If you haven't made one of these signs before, you should, they are super popular and super easy to make!

The Best Banana Bread and Muffins Recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CapturingTraditions #CollectiveBias

The school year is in full swing and we are starting to get the hang of school and all the chaos that goes with it.  I am really enjoying having my kids back on a routine again and they are all enjoying school.  Even though we all are used to school and everything, mornings are still very frantic and crazy!  My kids are NOT morning people at all and sometimes they get up late, like 15 minutes before it's time to leave the house.  Plus this year my oldest is in 7th grade, which means that he started school sports and the past two weeks he has had early morning practices (they start at 6:30am....) and so that has added to our stress in the mornings.  Since I of course want my kids to have breakfast in the mornings, I decided to make up a couple batches of this amazing banana bread/muffins to make our mornings run a little more smoothly.  They are super easy to make, plus my kids LOVE them!

Organized Laundry Room Makeover

This post contains affiliate links.

7 months ago my husband and I started doing a remodel on our house.  It was built in 2010 so it is VERY beige, so we starting updating it and making it more gray and white.  We tiled our master bathroom and kids' bathroom and I loved how it turned out so much that I wanted to tile the laundry room too. I love how this room turned out!  I think that this will make it easier to do laundry :).   I'm excited to show you the process of how we made over our laundry room.

Tips on How to Remove Color STREET Glitter Nail Polish Easily

This post contains affiliate links.

So I am obsessed with Color STREET nails.  They are amazing and I love how they look, feel and how easy they are to put on and take off.  Because they are 100% nail polish, they can easily be removed with nail polish remover.  All of the nail polish strips come off with nail polish remover but I have found that the glitter ones are a little bit harder to get off (just like regular glitter nail polish).  Well I found out a way and a remover that makes it super easy to take it off the glitter polish (this could be used for any of the Color STREET nails!).

Bathroom Makeover with Timeless Touch Design

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape®. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am obsessed with paint.  Nothing is safe in my house (and most things are not their original color).  I love how just a little bit of paint can transform a room or a piece of furniture.  It is really amazing the power of paint.  Well recently I have been redoing my house (like the whole house) and I have been painting every room, one at a time. All of my house was a beige color (walls and ceilings, everything!) and I am updating everything a painting all the walls a nice light gray and then all the ceilings white.  I am loving how it is turning out!  I have all of the common areas done so now I am turning my attention to the rooms.  I decided that our guest bathroom was in need of a makeover and I absolutely love the outcome of it!

DIY Fire Pit Sofa Bench with Step by Step Insructions

This post contains affiliate links.

One year ago we built a fire pit in our back yard (it only cost $60 to do and it's one of my favorite things we have every made!)  We have used it lot this past year and we just love it.  We have s'mores whenever we want and roast hot dogs on it and just sit around and chat.  It's so fun to wind down and chat with the kids (and unplug!).  Since we use it so much we decided that we could make a sofa bench for it.  I am so excited for the bench and cannot wait to use it all summer (and fall, winter and spring) long!  What I love about the design we did was that you can have 5 sections like we did or you can have 4 or 3 or 8, it's up to you! :)

4th of July Parade and Fireworks Bags for Kids

I was given product for this post, all opinions are 100% my own.  

My kids love the 4th of July.  It's such a fun holiday to get all decked out in red, white and blue!  Every year we try to go a parade and then go to see the fireworks at the fairgrounds or at a park.  If you've been to a parade or fireworks, then you know that there is a LOT of waiting around and kids get restless, especially my kids.  So this year I am going to be prepared for the boredom with these super cute 4th of July parade and fireworks bags.  I figured that we needed bags for the parade for candy anyways, so might as well make them super cute and filled with lots of fun things to do before the parade/fireworks! :)

Flower Applique Travel Sized Pillow Case Made with Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine {GIVEAWAY}

I was given product for this post, all opinions are 100% my own. 

It's summer time and it's time to travel! This year we decided to get a bunch of travel pillows for our kids (because having full sized pillows in the car is crazy!). So we bought all 5 of our kids travel pillows.  Finding pillow cases for them isn't easy (and honestly who wants to spend so much when they are super easy to make?).  I wanted to make a super cute pillow case for my daughter's.  Since she is the only girl, I get to have fun with her stuff and go all out!  I love the look of fun flowers, so I used the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine to cut out the fabric (yes you heard that right, a die cutting machine that can cut fabric!) and I love how it turned it!
