Lots of Easy Crafts! BFF Star: Pitter and Glink!

I haven't featured a Blog Feature Friday Star in a long while so I decided this is the perfect time to do it! This week's star is a super-crafter and everything she makes looks pretty and perfect. Plus, she is SO nice and SO supportive. In fact, this blog is one I started reading from the start!

Grain Sack Inspired Painted Bench

My sister recently gave me a long bench that she used in her kitchen. It was great as it was able to hold multiple little heineys at the same time!  I have been wanting to build a banquette in our eating nook in our kitchen but when she decided to get of the bench and give it to me, I decided this would be much easier and less permanent!  So I gave it a simple grain sack inspired paint treatment and now it holds multiple heineys in our kitchen!

4th of July Banner (Summer Craft)

This summer craft 4th of July banner article was originally posted at Live Creatively Inspired, a contributor driven lifestyle website. Your favorite home, garden, and craft bloggers contributing great ideas in one place!


 Now, onto getting your 4th of July on!


 Wa-hoo!  Have you been getting into the spirit of the holiday with patriotic crafts?  I did! I created a quick and easy patriotic bunting but I used red, white, and blue in a more subtle way. This way, it doesn't scream "FLAG!" and I can use it throughout the summer!

Our Family Rules (the real ones)

Here's a truth of mine. I'm overdone with rules. Family rules, playroom rules, porch rules, beach rules, classroom rules, you name it! You know the ones I'm talking about, right?  All those trendy wooden signs written in all different fonts that let everyone know how awesome your family/playroom/classroom/whatever is?
