Small But Simple Craft Projects

I am FINALLY back in the swing of crafting again it feels like. February was soo much traveling, lots of cleaning and trying to downsize stuff (I am not very fast at this part so it takes me weeks and weeks...) that the way my days went it left very little time for crafting and I missed it so badly! But now that it's March, it's like flipping a switch.

It's only March but are you ready for winter to go away? Are you dreaming about warm summer days sunning yourself on the beach? Yeah, I think we all are about now. So don't jump into summer unprepared! Check out CGear's sand free tote's. They are stylish and my favorite part? They are sand repellent? How many times have you left the beach with sand sticking to your bag, and then you have a whole car full of sand. I've been there and done that and it can be so annoying to clean up! How about we keep the sand at the beach?

St Patrick's Theme Pinterest Party!

Beautiful but chilly evening for a Pinterest party. The time of the party was moved from 7pm to 6pm and I think we will keep it that way for the next bit. I had a heater going a majority of the day out in the she-shed to make sure we were not chilly when crafting, since it is cement floors and all. Keep reading to see what we made and ate!

A Washer Under Your Washer?!

Disclosure: I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Have you seen or heard of the LG Appliances Twin Wash machine and sidekick? The "Twin" in the name means you get double the washer in one unit. How cool is that!? It's something I'll seriously consider getting when its time to upgrade our washer and dryer because I love the fact you can do a small load in the pull out drawer instead of having to put things in the main washer and doing a small load on top. Yanno? How would you use this in your house? I love the efficiency!

Another Pinterest Party Update! might be wondering what happened. While I think the 'wacky holidays' was a fun theme, I wasn't totally convinced / set / comfortable with it. After talking it over with a friend here we came up with doing this theme as the better idea. I'm excited to see how this turns out as I don't recall ever having done a St Patrick's day themed party before. Should be cool!

February 2018 California Pinterest Party Theme and Changes!

Every day of the year has some sort of 'wacky holiday' that various people celebrate. February is no exception - you can celebrate groundhogs, bubble gum, birds, ice cream, stuffed mushrooms, lame ducks, chopsticks, cards, kites, pizza, white t-shirts, friends, lost pennies, plum pudding, batteries and cherries just to name a few. You can see a complete list here

So, I thought with that being said, the February Pinterest party theme would be any of the wacky holidays in the month! Want to bring a food that you'd eat with chopsticks? Want to bring a pizza? Want to bring plum pudding or a cherry dessert? Go for it!

Since taking a poll in the West Coast Pinterest Parties group and a majority of voters were leaning towards only having to bring a food instead of a craft, I will give this a try. For the next few months I will provide 2-3 crafts and those attending can bring the food. I will try my hardest not to provide any food except drinks.  We'll see how this goes. After a few months we can evaluate. If you want to attend and are dying to bring a craft for up to 10 people, let me know and we can work that out - no problem.

Please email or leave a comment on this post if you have any questions. 

Date will be announced this week!

Creativation Pre-party!

Thursday evening before Creativation started, Cricut hosted a meetup event for bloggers and whoever wanted to come at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Phoenix. It was quite frustrating to find parking due to construction and the fact that they dont have any free parking so I had to pay a few dollars to park but I finally made it in to the restaurant which was very crowded in the back corner but I managed to sit next to my friend Rhonda who had flown to AZ from Michigan.
