Last week, I had the privilege of hosting a Brit + Co Co-Op party.  This event was sponsored by Brit + Co and Scotch Brand.  They sent me six kits that included everything we needed to make colorful paper garland.

Look at all this free stuff we got!  Scissors, peacock duct tape, super glue, scotch tape, double-sided tape, tape measure, glue stick, utility knife, hole punch, paper, sewing kit, tacky glue, 3 washi tapes, gold paint pen, bakers twine and more.  Lucky girls!  

Can't forget the beverages, that kept us hydrated while we were crafting.  I actually got the inspiration for my bar cart from Brit + Co, last Spring.  

Getting Crafty

I encourage you to follow Brit + Co and Scotch on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.  They have so many fun, creative DIY projects.  They will inspire you to be creative!  





Thanks for the fun night Brit + Co and Scotch Brand!  We had a great time crafting and creating our garland!  We can't wait for our next craft night!

Big surprise, I made one that said Cheers!  I plan on using it the next time I host happy hour at my house.  

Check out #homemakers and #iamcreative on Instagram to see what others created.  

Happy Champagne Thursday!

Gratitude Journal

Gratitude journal. Who wants to join me? Write down 5 things you are grateful for everyday. It can be as simple as having a hot shower, a nap, 15 minutes to yourself...

I started my Gratitude journal at the beginning of the year and I've actually been keeping up with it everyday.  Here are a few things from mine:

  • Celebrating 8 years of Marriage
  • Listening to Parker read
  • Barre Class
  • Light, fluffy snow
  • Ryder telling me "I love you all day," "I love you two times" and "I love you forever!"
  • A garbage can that automatically opens, especially when my hands are full or dirty
  • Dinner and game night with friends
  • A nap
  • Girls Night Out
  • Movie night with my family
  • Swim Lessons for Parker and Ryder

Happy Champagne Thursday!

Favorite Things Party

I had my Second Annual Favorite Things Party last night and it was so much fun!  Everyone brought three of their favorite items (the same items) with a $10 limit for each present, wrapped up.  Each person puts their name in a bucket three times and then each person draws three names and those are the presents they get.  Everyone goes home with three presents!

I also made party favors for everyone, that incorporated a few of my favorite things.  Who doesn't love party favors?  Ornaments, the state of Montana and chocolate!  I love every ornament on my tree and each one tells a story.  

I cut out the state of the Montana from a copied map and then traced it onto each ornament with a silver sharpie and added a heart.  I added a couple chocolates and wrapped them up in brown paper packages.  I think they turned out pretty cute and I'm going to give a few more out as gifts.  

Montana Ornaments

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Happy Grandparent's Day

Happy Grandparent's Day!  Parker and Ryder have got to see all their grandparents over the last couple weeks.  Lucky boys!  They love their Grandma, three Grandpas and GGB so much!  

Here is a preview of this years Grandparents day card.  A collage I created in Google Picasa, with a few of my favorite pictures from the last six months.  

Here's to Grandmas, Grandpas and Great-Grandparents!

Back to School

Apparently I took the Summer off from blogging...  We had a busy and fun Summer that went by way too fast!  And now we are back to school, trying to figure out a morning routine and waking up to an alarm.

Parker started kindergarten last week!  I can't believe he is in elementary school already!  We were both ready though.  He loves it so far and told us last Friday that he wishes he could live at the school.  Parker has a great teacher, who we are really excited about.  He has a private Facebook page for the class, which he updates a couple times a day with what the kids are working on and doing.  I absolutely love this, because getting information out of Parker about what he did during the day can be a little difficult.  I know he is going to have an awesome year and learn so much!

Gotta love a teacher that takes a selfie with his kids!

Ryder started preschool this week.  He has enjoyed seeing some old friends and his teachers!  This is year 2 of 4 preschool!  

On an important call
Here's to a great school year!

Happy Champagne Thursday!
