all it takes is a little creativity...and some Mod Podge

Today is the day where Mod Podge Mania is happening at This is the Year! Get ready to be inspired by lots of little projects that you can do with some simple coats of the "magic glue" we all (should) know and love!

My original project didn't quite come together due to needing some extra supplies that I didn't have time to get, so I went with Plan B! I wanted a little bucket that was large enough to hold my small craft punches in my creative space.

Before I started, I gathered together all of the supplies that I thought I might need. I pretty much was right on as I worked on the project, but found I needed glue dots, also.

Are you wondering why I wouldn't just use the metal bucket "as is"? Because this is what it looked like when you turn it over. It was from the Dollar Tree, so what do you expect? Needless to say, it needed a makeover. Its real function is to be used as a planter...just so you know.

First things first...figure out where you need to trim the paper on the top and bottom to make it fit over the bucket.

In the end, it should look a little something like this. Notice the curved shape since the bucket has a slight slope. You will end up having two pieces that you will overlap a little on the sides.

Then simply glue the paper down with some strokes of Mod Podge.

And, after both sides are glued down (and remember they will overlap each other), give it a generous coat of Mod Podge to give it a good seal (this is my favorite part of Mod Podge!)

I added some button embellishments for an extra touch using small glue dots (oh, and by the way, just a reminder to not forget to get your button projects ready for Thursday and come on back to link up for my monthly craft challenge)

~my little helper~
button sorting kept him busy and entertained!
The final project in its "home"...for now. I'm constantly moving things around in my creative space to make it work for me. We'll see how long it lasts in this place.

Head on over to This is the Year for Mod Podge Mania AND visit Kimm at Reinvented for some great Trash to Treasure makeovers...my project is kind of trash to treasure, right?...who would really want to keep that tin bucket looking "as is".

And, this isn't the first time I've made one of these. Check out my Halloween treat bucket (this one was before I found the dollar cheapy tins) & Valentine's bucket. These are super easy to make and they turn out so functional (and cute)!

tackle this, that, and the other

Day One of implementing my new daily schedule was a success! (more details to come...but if you're wondering what I'm talking about, I kind of explained a little bit in this post)

The kids and I had such a great day and we didn't even have to go anywhere! I was able to tackle so many things and I had dinner ready to go as hubby was walking through the door. He even let me get away at 7:00 to tackle a huge grocery trip and he took care of bath time and bed time for the kids.

Besides the normal morning tackles of getting showered and dressed, breakfast for all of us, dishwasher unloaded, breakfast dishes loaded...do I need to keep going? You all know how the morning is! I decided as part of my new "schedule" Mikayla and I would do a daily craft together sometime in the morning. I am going to make sure it never has to be anything fancy or require a lot of supplies (or I might not do it), but just something fun that she could do that will be different than just playing with Play-Doh or coloring.

So, today's craft tackle was inspired by Lucky Me! and we made Easter egg sun catchers using contact paper and tissue paper. Super easy and she loved it!! You'd be so proud of me because I even did a little mini-lesson on eggs by showing her what an egg looks like and talking about how it is an oval shape, and where they come from. I know! I guess the teacher in me is starting to show again!

While the kids took a nap, I got busy working on Mikayla's birthday party invites for her three girlfriends that we are inviting over to help her celebrate turning 3! I've been meaning to get going on these for awhile, but the inspiration hit me today and I got to accomplish a fun tackle!

I found a purse template on my most recent trip to Paper Zone, and since it's going to be a tea time/dress up party, I thought this would be a cute way to invite the girls.

Another fun tackle was making this little welcome jar of robin egg whoppers for our new neighbors down the street. We haven't officially met them yet, so I thought it would be fun to bring them something to welcome them to the neighborhood. They are a young couple who are expecting their first child, so it will be fun to get to know them...if they so desire to.

I made the tag using my new Stampin' Up set called Cheep Talk. I love this set!! I made a few cards with it over the weekend, so I'll have to show you how cute this set is.

Overall this day was so much fun and I wasn't sitting on the computer for more than 5 minutes while the kids were up. That felt so good!! We read books together before lunch, and it delighted me to watch the kids play together with NO TV on (not that we watch it all day anyway, but I'm putting a tighter reign on it). I even took 20 minutes of my day (doesn't sound like a lot) and just had mommy play time with the kids...with no other agenda other than to sit and play and have fun. They got a kick out of serving me food from their kitchen and Austin wrestling me. I don't do this enough, so I'll definitely be making it a habit! It's inspiring to see the little changes I'm making, and although I realize it's only Monday and day one of this "new schedule", I'm determined to make all of these changes a routine in my day to day life!

And with all this talk of being crafty and creative...don't forget to be working on your button projects. THIS THURSDAY is the day we'll be linking up to show off our button magic. I'll give a sneak peek of a little something I've been working on soon. You'll have one week after Thursday to still link up and be entered into the giveaway. Yes, there will be another giveaway!! I just can't help myself!! Spread the word with the button in the left side bar and visit HERE for more information on my monthly craft challenges.

To see what others tackled today and to get inspired to get tackling, head on over to 5 Minutes for Mom.

Blogging break? What blogging break?

As you can see, I snuck in each day during the weekend just to share a few tidbits here and there, so by looking at my blog you wouldn't have even been able to tell that I had considered myself "on a break"!

I've been processing a lot of thoughts lately, and I wanted to share them as a way for me to sort through all that's swirling around in my head. So, please forgive me for the long (and possibly boring?) post I'm about to share. Let's just pretend this is eloquently written and I have grabbed a hold of your attention. The. Entire. Time.

On Wednesday night I had come to the conclusion that I had been avoiding a lot of my priorities lately and I began to wonder why? My initial thought was that I was spending too much time blogging, so I instantly made the decision (at 11:00 PM) to give it up for awhile and so became this post...some late night rambling.

But then I got to thinking...

In general, I have some high expectations for myself, my life, and anything that I am responsible for. This has always been the case for me, and is often why people (and myself) call me a perfectionist. Although it has its goods being known as "one of those", it also has its hindrances. I tend to overstress myself to get it done right. This kind of thinking has struck in a new area of my life - blogging!

So, I got to thinking some more...

It would be one thing for blogging to be my little outlet where I could come and go as I please (which is what I had intended it to be), share what I want, and comment on other blogs here and there when I had the time. But because of my need for high expectations of myself I was turning this outlet into a "must have something to post every day or I'll die trying (or just stay up way too late doing it!)". And my need to comment on EVERY post I read was really getting out of hand (although, oddly enough, I actually love to do that). It's just not realistic...as I'm sure you all know.

So, my conclusion is this...

My blog does not have to be a place of strict daily posting if I do not have the time for it to be. I should be able to share what I want when I want and have no agenda. I'm pretty sure that's the whole point of blogging. A journal of sorts. I do not have to spend hours reading through blogs and commenting all the time. I'll do it when I can and enjoy it when it happens.

To be perfectly honest, blogging was not the only thing that was sucking up my time. I am just learning that I need to get my priorities straight and so I am in the process of figuring out a daily schedule for myself. Some of you might laugh at this, but I thrive on having things planned out. I know I won't always be able to keep this schedule, so I'll remind myself to be flexible! This schedule will also help me figure out when I need to work on my "outside the home" commitments (MOPS & Stampin' Up!) and when I need to make time for play time with the kids. I'm in the process of figuring that all out, but when I have the schedule done, I'll be sharing it with you!!

Lastly, many of you shared some great tips and thoughts for me to be realistic about my blogging and I listened to every one of them!

I love the idea that Rhonda suggested about getting through my morning routine before I look at the computer. Usually the first thing I do is check my e-mail. But I've decided that I need to get dressed and ready for the day before that becomes at all a priority. She also suggested setting a timer if I do sit down to do something on the computer. Because you all know how you can get sucked in!

Tanya shared the idea about keeping the computer OFF until I get done what needs to be done. Sounds scary to me actually...turn the computer off?! Which probably means it needs to happen.

And thank you to my good friend Leanna for reminding me that we can't always be totally balanced all the time because life is sometimes just too crazy. Love you, friend!

Thanks for letting me "talk it through" with you! I would love to hear more tips on how you keep your daily schedule, especially those with younger kids who have not started school yet. What does your day look like? How do you get it all done and have fun doing it? Of course, I'd like to hear from everyone on how you juggle life...with little kids or not!

And I suppose that in all my rambling I could have put you to sleep, so for that, I apologize. It was definitely enough to knock this little guy out...

Hope you all have a happy Monday and thanks for listening!!

saturday salad on sunday

Katie at A Listmaker's Life has a weekly carnival called Saturday Salads. You should go on over and check it out since summer will be coming before we know it and summer always reminds me of salads! I'm a little late to the party since it's technically not Saturday, but I have a few minutes of downtime while the kids nap, so I thought I'd share a favorite of mine that's super easy!

I'll just give you the ingredients for 1 serving, but you'll get the gist for making it for the whole family. By the way, this is a great salad for watching what you eat...just don't go overboard with the dressing! I'm going to give you the "lite" version since I'm attempting to watch my weight these days (I guess this probably wouldn't be the time to confess that I had Chinese food for lunch...and a lot of it!). If you want the real recipe, I found it HERE.

Barbecued Chicken Southwestern Salad

*lettuce of your favorite variety and however much you like to fill the plate
*1/4 - 1/2 cup canned corn, drained
*1/4 - 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
*1 chicken breast grilled with bbq sauce or baked in oven with bbq sauce (sometimes I only need to use half the chilcken)
*1/8 - 1/4 cup 2% Mexican-style shredded cheese
*crumbled BAKED Tostitos (14 chips is 1 serving)
*I'm not a fan of tomatoes, but I'm sure for those who are you could add some for color and a little more flavor!

Here's the real treat...the dressing!
Mix ranch dressing and BBQ sauce to make a yummy blend. I'll let you figure out how much of each, but the original does say to use equal of both ranch and BBQ sauce. I usually do a little more BBQ sauce than ranch since we all know how much fat is in ranch dressing! I usually don't go for light ranch since I don't like the taste. I just try to use less of it and I always use the trick of dipping my fork in the dressing and then on my salad. I try to NEVER smother my salad in dressing...it just helps cut back the fat/calories. I know that's already a given, but there's my tip for the day anyway!

Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday! We've had a leisurely weekend with a few extra days with Ryan being off work. It's kind of the "calm before the storm" since it's back to an extra busy week for him starting next week. Late nights...ugh!

I want to leave you with this last random funny for the day...

This morning as we were getting ready for church, I asked Mikayla if she could please come here so I could do her hair. I heard her say with her sweet little voice from the back bedroom, "No thank you!" At least she was polite about it.

i've got mail!

OK, so technically this isn't considered a blogging break if I'm taking the time to post, but look what I got in the mail today!!

My Stampin' Up! demonstrator kit...it's like Christmas and I can't wait to tear into the box and look through all of my goodies. I just had to share my excitement with SOMEONE!

**And, as a quick side note...thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday's post. Your thoughts are more appreciated than you know! I think I'm beginning to figure out that there IS a place and a time for blogging, but that it's just a matter of perspective on what MY own expectations are on how/what I blog. Also, it's not just about the blogging that I needed balance on, so I can't blame it all on that. I'll explain more later...

And, as I quickly finish this up, I'm looking out the window watching my daughter and her daddy play some bat and ball, so I'm off to go join in the fun! Unfortunately, something I may not have taken the time to do before...itty bitty steps I tell you.

mommy, I need you

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about balance, quality time, priorities, and commitments. I have had a couple of encounters these last few days that have made me think about it even more and it has really been on my heart! On Monday, I received an e-mail asking me how I balance my busy life (I didn't have a good answer), and just today I read a blog post from a blog I follow asking questions about balancing daily life (I didn't have a good answer).

And, after these two simple encounters, I'm finally realizing that my babies and my wonderful hubby desperately need their mommy and wife without distractions, so I'm going to be MIA for a bit. I don't know how long that will be, but I think I need a little bit of a blogging break. I've been going non-stop these days with trying to get something posted every day. I'm enjoying it, but there are a lot of things that I have been neglecting because of it and I need to get back to my priorities. God. My family. Me. My responsibilities.

I hope to be back soon, but only after I figure out how to get the right kind of balance in my commitments to my family (number one) and the things that I am responsible for in other areas of my life. I'm just trying to figure out how to juggle this life as a stay-at-home mom and enjoy it along the way! I'm not sure I'm doing the best job I can, so I need to figure out how I can change that.

I know that we all go through this kind of thing in our life where we need to take a step back and figure out what's not working. In fact, I think it's healthy to evaluate our lives often. This is {one of} my times. I'm not giving up on blogging because I have really enjoyed the relationships I have built so far, but as I was telling my husband I do need a break and I realize that. And, instead of just quitting something that I find inspiring, I just need to see how I can incorporate it into my daily life without it being my main priority.

So, for however long it takes, I'm on a mission to find what "balance" means to me! Wish me luck...

Some pizza and a movie (our Friday night family night), might look a little like this...

Visit 5 Minutes for Mom for more Wordless Wednesday.

quick card assembly tip

Tonight is my first card swap as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I kind of feel like it's my first day as a teacher in a new school. I get to meet all the new teachers {stampers} and see their fun classrooms {creations}. I'm a little nervous, but I'm glad to be embarking on this new journey with a new friend of mine, Andrea. She is the gal I am signed up under and I couldn't be more happy with that. She is so much like me in every way when it comes to being creative. Andrea and I had the pleasure of co-hosting a baby shower awhile back for a mutual friend of ours. And now it will be fun to actually be working together in our jobs! Thanks, Andrea, for your encouragement in getting me started with this fun company!

Anyhoo...where was I? Oh! Today is Works for Me Wednesday at We Are That Family and I thought I would share with you a quick tip that I have often used when making cards.

When I make cards, I spend a good portion of my time designing something that I really like and am proud of. So, instead of moving on to the next card right away, I take the extra hour or so and decide to make 7-10 of that same card to have on hand. So, my tip for all those card makers out there is after coming up with a design that you are happy and proud of, gather together all of the pieces that you will need to whip a bunch of those cards out in no time by making an assembly line of sorts!

I interrupt this post for a little bit of randomness and a quick flashback:
This kind of reminds me of when I made my wedding invitations 5 1/2 years ago. I cut all the pieces to the invite and then invited over my bridesmaids and we had a wedding invitation party and we put them all together. These girls helped me crank those babies out!

OK, back to March 2009....

The picture below shows you all of the pieces ready to go for me to create 8 of the completed card shown. (If you want to see more detail on the card, just click on the picture.) I'm waiting on one color (Green Galore) to finish up the assembly that I hope to borrow from my dear friend, Kim at Caldwell Cuties, who would lend me her kitchen sink if she could. She already loaned me Real Red and some ribbon so I could make this last minute card for the swap (I'm waiting for my demonstrator package in the mail!) Kim is a former Stampin' Up! demonstrator and awesome "card-whipper outer" (I just made that up). I think she will be a lifesaver when it comes to "needing something real quick"! Thanks, Kim!

So, dust off those card making supplies and get to work, why don't you!? And, if you're feeling particularly crafty and want to join us in this month's BUTTON CRAFT CHALLENGE, be sure to get your project ready to share for next Thursday, April 2nd. We'll be having a Mr. Linky party! I can't wait to see what you all have come up with! I've shared some button inspiration HERE if you need a little extra push in the right direction! Oh, and did you see all the fun things that were created for last month's circle scalloped punch challenge? Run on over and check it out!

making it a treasure

A little over a month ago, I took a trip to Goodwill to scope out and see if there was anything I could find to create a fun transformation...just because. I have seen some amazing projects floating around blogland where people have taken what seems like trash and turned it into a treasure, so I was a little motivated to try and do the same.

Well, needless to say I'm not sure I have "the eye" for these sort of things, but I did come away with two little goodies that I thought might have potential...and it only cost me $2.00!

It was finally time to tackle this project!!

This is a wooden box marked at $.99. I decided to use it to hold Mikayla's hair accessories, but not looking like this!

I was using the container below from the "first round" of organizing her hair accessories, but every time I wanted to get into it, I had to unscrew the lid. Lazy, I know!

Here's the wooden box transformation...
I (my husband) spray painted the box white, and then I used Modge Podge to cover it in some decorative paper. I then wrapped a grosgrain ribbon around it and added some fun embellishments to finish it off!

Now, onto my second transformation...this was another goodie I found at $.99! It's one of those cubes that holds various photos. I didn't quite like the "good times" on it, so...

I covered it in the same decorative paper as the box above and added some clear bubble stickers for a little extra embellishment.
I'm slowly trying to redo Mikayla's room into more a "big girl" room little by little, so this was a fun little project I could do quickly, but still make somewhat of a change.
Maybe next time I'll have to challenge myself with something a bit larger.

For more "trash to treasure" projects, head on over to Kimm's at Reinvented. She has an amazing one to share (how does she do it?!), and there are other projects to check out as well.


I've also done a little tackling of my craft cupboard. It really needed it!



Obviously I've made a little extra room in the cupboard because guess what?? I'm doing it! I'm signing up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I'm super excited! Anyone need to buy some crafting supplies...specifically stamps?


And, lastly...the biggest tackle of all! Getting my son's haircut! I haven't quite been up for the challenge in cutting it myself, so we take him to Little Clippers (and pay entirely too much, by the way!). This last cut was such a nightmare! He cried and fussed the whole time. The gal did the best she could, but I just couldn't wait to get out of there! Maybe this is why we wait so long in between haircuts. But he does look darn cute...

Kasey at All That is Good is encouraging us to be THANKFUL for today's Friend Making Monday!

My TOP TEN things I am thankful for...

1. God, the ultimate provider of all my blessings! He has lead me through an amazing journey thus far and I can't wait for what else He has in store for me.

2. These blue-eyed blessings...my sweet babes and my wonderful husband who is an amazing father and loving husband. I can't say enough how blessed I am to have such a wonderful man that I can call my husband and the most precious little ones that I adore!

3. My extended family that includes, of course, my mom, dad, brother and sister! I am so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful heritage of believers and two sets of grandparents that are rock solid Christians and have shown me what it means to love others as Jesus would.

Christmas 2007...I suppose it's time for another family photo!

3. My love for creativity! I love so many things that use the creativity that God has blessed me with, including, but not limited to...scrapbooking, card making, decorating, kid crafting, creating photo cards, and so much more!

4. A house that I can call a HOME...a place where we can play, have fun, and be a family who loves each other!

5. Friends...new, old, and everyone in between! I am honored to call the people that I have met in my life my friends. Some of them go back almost 13 years! And we're still going strong. Some of them are new friends who are making an impact on me at this phase in my life and I look forward to where those friendships will take us!

Leanna, Linsey, Heidi, Alex, & Natasha
March 2009

6. My local Mother of Preschoolers (MOPS) group. I have been attending this group for three years and have grown so much in different ways, and have met some amazing people! I thrive off being part of a group! This past year I volunteered to be on the MOPS leadership team and I am so glad that I did. It has given me a place to use my leadership skills and creativity. I am currently responsible for the monthly creative activities, birthdays, babies, and pregnancy celebrations, the monthly newsletter, and updating the blog. It sounds like a lot, but I thrive off of keeping busy, so I love it!

7. My love for organizing...I enjoy keeping my house in "working order" by having the places (even the nooks and crannies!) in our home organized. There's just something about my need for having things organized.

8. My education and teaching experience...I was thankful to have 4 years of college education graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education. During my six years of teaching experience, I continued on with my education and received my Masters in Education about 4 months before having Mikayla. Since having Mikayla, I have not been back to teaching, but I am so grateful for that experience. I made some amazing relationships, especially in my years at Portland Christian Elementary.

9. Being a stay-at-home mom...something that I had always hoped I could be! I love being home with my kids and to be able to do the fun things that we do. I can't say it's all "fun and games" because it is difficult, stressful, tiring, and frustrating. However the joys definitely outweighs the struggles. I love being able to go outside together, work on a craft, play games, go to library story times, play dates, and so much more!

10. Prayer...It's amazing what prayer can do! Philippians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."

Head on over to Kasey's for more of Friend Making Monday!
