Personalized Barrette Holder

I recently made two personalized barrette holders and I'm thrilled with them!

I found 2 unfinished photo frames on clearance at Michael's for $1 each. I painted them white and attached pink and green ribbon (paint and ribbon free from my craft cabinet). I then added an already painted "Princess" sign to the top, again, found at Michael's for 99 cents each. I wanted to make them sparkle, so I added flashy pink and silver rhinestones (Michael's for $1.50 after using a 50% off coupon). I glued the rhinestones to the Princess topper and the sides of the picture frame. Back near the unfinished frames, I discovered a shelf of lacing beads and objects for children necklaces. I loved the frog and flowers packet. Each packet ($1) came with one frog, two flowers, several beads, and a necklace string. Finally, using puffy paint (free from craft cabinet), I wrote the names on the bottom. The total project cost $7. 50.

Now, all is needed is a picture for each frame and barrettes!

Our Summer Bucket List

Summer is officially here!! So, to celebrate, I sat down with Izzie and we came up with our Summer Bucket List...

We go to the beach with family every summer and this is the first summer that Izzie is anticipating the trip. She talks about the beach everyday, at least a hundred times a day. She was super excited to put build a sand castle and find seashells at the top of the list! We hung the list on the refrigerator and can't wait to start checking off our activities.

Did I mention that Mac is included in the fun too?

Blowing bubbles....check!

I was inspired to make a Summer Bucket List after seeing The Shafer's Family Bucket List.
