Mom's Emergency Stash

Mother's Day will be here before we know it. Today we have a fun little gift idea that only takes a few minutes to put together. Give it to your Mom or give it to your Mom friends, plus I think even most Dad's (with their kid's help) could pull this one off. ;) 

- Plastic organizer box (usually by the beads)
- Ribbon
- Chocolate, of course!
- Cardstock 
- Mom's Emergency Stash Tag - Download yours HERE
[Personal use only - Do not link directly to the download]

Just fill the little compartments with Mom's favorite chocolates or candies. Download, print and trim the tag. Punch a hole in the corner and tie it on with some ribbon. 

Then have your Mom hide it in a very secret location away from all those dirty little fingers... so when an emergency pops up... she can go right to her stash. :)

Our Friday Five | Jodie Edition

I have fallen in love with fairy gardens! So, when I saw this at Catch My Party I knew we had a Fairy Garden Party in our future.

02 |  Blame It On Me by George Ezra
My husband is always introducing me to good songs and this one is my latest addiction.

I want my cute kids painted on my phone case!  Rebecca is amazing and you'll be so happy with whatever she paints for you.

04 |  Apple Watch
Who's going to be wearing one of these?

05 |  Garden Stool
Isn't this garden stool so cool?  

Hope you all have a great weekend! 
Get some rest (I know I want to)!

Red, White And Blue Cream Soda Bar

For the last Michaels Makers challenge for this year, Michaels is celebrating all the fun summer occasions. Gifts for Moms, Dads and Teachers, and parties to celebrate birthdays, graduations, and the 4th of July! We were so excited to find out that our theme was all about the Red, White and Blue! 

We love to celebrate the 4th of July around here. Everyone gets dressed in their red, white and blue and we show our pride for this great country.  This year, we thought it would be fun to change things up a bit.  What's better than watching a firework show with all of your family and friends?  I can tell you....sipping on a yummy cream soda while watching a firework show with all your family and friends.

We had so much fun hunting down some good ol' red, white and blue at Michael's.  I think we can agree, these long neck bottles are way too fun!!  

If you couldn't tell, our fun banner is made out of paper plates! I love it because it was inexpensive and we whipped it up in about 10 minutes. All you have to do is cut a slit about 1" on both sides of the plate (where you plan to fold). Then, fold the plate in half. Insert the twine or yarn in the fold and staple at both ends. We spaced them out a little over an inch apart but you can easily move them around once you get it hung up. Now, for the drinks!

Cream Soda:
1 c. of cold club soda
2 1/2 tbsp. of syrup
2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream

Now...sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
