Back to School organization is really my thing. I have lots of things, but the smell of fresh school supplies is one of my favorite smells on this earth. I crave the day when I can go all by myself and purchase school supplies for me. I know… I’m too old for school supplies…. let’s call them office supplies.

Enough about me, it is time that I get my oldest daughter, Ann, on the organization train for school.  This year she is beginning Algebra and high school English and needs to be on the ball and not scrambling at the last minute for things.

She needs lots of binders and a small printer for all those papers she will write. If you are reading this sweet girl… yes I said all of those papers!

So what does a resourceful and clever mom do? I head to Wal-Mart and get an adorable pink HP Deskjet 3722 All-in-One Printer/Copier/Scanner
 and some copy paper!

HP Deskjet 3722

Y’all have to agree that HP makes a fabulous printer. Remember the one I donated to the school last year?

The HP 3722 is the perfect size for a bedroom or dorm room desk. In fact, it is officially the smallest all-in-one printer. You could even put it on a shelf it is so compact. This is a must in our house. We need things that are petite for my petite girls.

Don’t worry, it still prints beautifully. You can Wirelessly print, scan, and copy what you need quickly and easily with this affordable all-in-one.

I have to admit that the one thing that had me at hello was the color. Wal-Mart carries these signature colors and they rock: Sporty Purple, Poppy Pink, Dragonfly Blue.

You can print with or without a network from a computer, smartphone or tablet. This is a must in this house. You can even scan any object on the go with the HP All-in-One Printer Remote mobile app for your smartphone or tablet. So cool!

Summer is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but I can’t deny that fresh produce tops my list. Not only does it awaken all of your taste buds, but it is perfect when you want to invite some friends over and throw a casual get together. Today I am going to share with you how to throw the easiest ever summer party.

Beverage Station Since my outdoor space is pretty much ready at any time for company, I find it super simple to purchase and serve a few store bought beverages, put them in a cute container and and a little something to mix up the flavor a bit.

For this party, I also planned a decadent fruit salad tray and told the guests to bring whatever they like to throw on the grill!

Food Lion Produce Fresh Produce makes Summer Entertaining so Easy and Delicious! Come see some delicious beverage pairings and a fruit salad tray that is a work of art! Fresh Produce makes Summer Entertaining so Easy and Delicious! Come see some delicious beverage pairings and a fruit salad tray that is a work of art!

I headed to my local Food Lion to pick up all of the essentials. I stopped first at the beverage cooler by the deli to pick up a few bottles of FUZE® Tea, next I grabbed a 2 liter of Minute Maid® Lemonade and an extra 6 pack to send the party guests home with something refreshing for the drive. Finally, I went to town in the produce section. Seriously, I had my car stocked full of so many beautiful fresh fruits that you would have thought I could feed an army.  Good thing I had some coupons that I picked up on my way in!

Coupon offers available via in-store kiosk:

  • Buy (two) FUZE 1L OR (two) Minute Maid 2L OR (one) Minute Maid .5L 6pk and get $1 OFF Fresh Cut Produce OR
  • Buy (two) FUZE 1L OR (two) Minute Maid 2L OR (one) Minute Maid .5L 6pk and get $1 OFF your purchase

Tea and Lemonade

If you entertain a good bit, you probably have some of your own decorative serving pieces. I always transfer my store bought goodies into my own containers. You can see that I used glass bottles for the Fuze Tea, Minute Maid Lemonade and Ice Water. I put it in a galvanized bucket full of ice and all those refreshing beverages. They are great on their own, or you can kick it up a notch with delicious flavorings.

Fresh Cut Fruit

This is where the fun comes in!  I set up two cake stands and a few wooden trays and bowls with everything you can think of to stir in a little flavor.

Citrus and Herbs

Fresh fruit is delicious, but also adding a second dimension of herbs can really make the perfect summer beverage.

Fruit and Herb Drink Skewers

Here are just a few of my favorite flavor combinations using fresh herbs and fresh cut produce. Lemon Rosemary, Blueberry Peach, Blackberry Basil Lime and Watermelon Mint.

Watermelon Lime Infused Water

They all pair so well with tea, lemonade and even just water! Look how beautiful the infused stirrers make an ordinary drink. It tastes even better than it looks.

Fuze and Minute Maid

I am also sure to keep extra beverages on hand for refills and to offer our guests for the road. It is quite warm and humid where we live, so something cool to drink is always in order!

Fruit Salad Tray 6

Now, I bring you to another show-stopping trick to create instant oohs and ah’s around the table.

The fruit salad tray.

Fruit Salad Tray 4

You heard me right… a big beautiful tray full of every fruit in the produce section where your guests can nibble or dish up a bowl of delicious fruit salad. It goes perfectly with anything we might be grilling.

Fruit Salad Tray 2

It is loved by kids, adults, ladies, gentlemen and even the pickiest of eaters. Yes, I totally meant me by that last one :)

fruit salad tray 5

This one display is a recipe that you absolutely cannot mess up… I promise. Grab a tray and load it up with fresh cut fruit from the produce section. I even added a tiny bit of mint for a little more flavor and well… it is pretty!

fruit salad tray 8

Since all of this was is so easy to throw together, you’ll have plenty of time to catch up with old friends. We love to nosh and nibble and laugh with our bellies full of all this fresh goodness. These are my favorite summer nights. The ones that begin before sundown and last way into the dark. The adults play hand after hand of cards and the kids play flashlight tag and catch lightning bugs.

We all savor every moment, the smells, the sounds of the night, the delicious food and drinks served and the sound of laughter bouncing off of the porch lights.

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy way to start the day and a great way to pack in the protein!

This time of year, my kids are hungry… all the time. Seriously like from the second their toes hit the floor to the second their heads hit the pillow at night. The thing I can’t figure out is how they can eat SO much and stay so little. I wish I could say the same for myself.

Breakfast has become their favorite meal of the day. Coincidentally, they wake up right as I am knee-deep in work and want a hearty breakfast. Gone are the days are cereal and a little bit of fruit. These girls are athletes and they both need some protein and I need something fast to fix them. Thank goodness for convenience foods mixed with a little fresh fruit.

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy way to start the day and a great way to pack in the protein!

I don’t know when you last perused the freezer section at Wal-Mart, but now they are selling some great stuff. We love Eggo Cinna-Toast Cinnamon Roll and Choco-Toast Chocolatey Chip waffles. The best part is that they now have colors & flavors from natural sources! That makes this mama feel good about serving them up to her girls.

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy way to start the day and a great way to pack in the protein!

First, let’s just take a look at how cute the tiny pieces of cinnamon toast are… everything tastes so good when it is tiny, don’t you think?! You just pop them in the toaster and wait for them to toast. I like for mine to be good and warm.

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches 2

To make the sandwich, I usually cook up some eggs in muffin tin at 350 degrees for about ten minutes. I normally use between 6-8 eggs, a dash of milk and salt and pepper to taste. I also love the fully cooked turkey sausage patties that just need to be reheated.

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches 3

Place them all together and cut them along the lines of the toast. You now have a sweet and savory protein packed breakfast that is so delicious it doesn’t even require syrup! The mini breakfast sandwiches were a hit and they are perfectly delicious and filling… thank goodness!

Mini Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy way to start the day and a great way to pack in the protein!

We couldn’t resist trying out the Kellogg’s® Eggo® Choco-Toast™ Chocolatey Chip: These chocolatey chip flavored Eggo® Choco-Toasts™ . They are so yummy and great for my chocoholic gals!

Paw Painting Rocks my World

Giant Team Stencils

My family has a long standing string of Clemson University graduates. Myself, my husband, brother, sister, father, mother, sister in law, cousins… you get the idea. Most people knew almost nothing about my favorite little place on this earth until our football team won the National Championship last year. Not me, I was born into a fierce love for the tigers and I feel like I am in my happy place when I am there.

Mobile Image (8)

As a child, I knew that we had arrived to this glorious place when tiger paws began to spot the roads leading onto campus. I can still remember the butterflies in my stomach. I knew that we were about to have some fun, eat some great food and watch the Tigers play. You can see how happy those times were from me. I think the picture above was taken around 1980. I loved my Clemson Tigers.

This is a great picture of what the roads look like. When I was in college, an organization that I was associated with was in charge of the paw painting and when it came time to re-paint… as Dabo Swinney would say, I was “All In”. I’ve sent out the SOS to a few of my buddies to get pictures of us painting the roads, so I’ll add them in when I get them.

Paw Painting 1

When I was contacted by Stencil Stop to take a look at their stencils…. and then I saw this one. I was instantly transported. Can you believe it… I could paw paint anywhere I want!  Well, maybe not anywhere… but I think my neighbors would love a street dotted with paws, especially the Carolina fans.

clemson-tigers-paw-logo-stencil-plastic-26112963079_250x250@2x

Don’t worry, they probably have your favorite team, too. For me, I was all about the Clemson Stencils.

Paw Painting 3

 Well look at this… my own paw painting leading up to the front of the house. For this, I called in my support team!

Supplies Needed: 

Paw Painting 4

This color powder is amazing because you can just wash it off with a hose, but you can totally use real paint if you want something more permanent.

We just held down the stencil and added a scoop of the powder and just used a paint brush to swish it around a bit. It was super simple process. If you were using a can of spray paint you would be done in a minute flat.

Be sure to head on over to Stencil Stop to shop for a stencil for your favorite team!

Pin for later…

This Boho Yarn Hanging is one of my most favorite projects ever and for SO many reasons!

Make this beautiful DIY Boho Yarn Wall Hanging with this simple tutorial. You can even purchase the DIY kit and have all the supplies you need delivered right to your front door with free shipping!

Reason #1

I have had this project on my mind for so many months now and it is finally complete and on my little La La’s wall. Stay tuned for the entire gallery wall that I’ll be sharing soon!

Yarn Wall Hanging 1Reason #2

This is so very extra exciting and something I’ve always wanted to do. I have partnered with Rose & Cedar and will be offering DIY kits for some of our favorite projects. This is the very first kit you will have a chance to purchase the kit at the bottom of the post. So cool, right?!

I have wanted to offer DIY kits since this blog began and it is now a reality. I could not be more thrilled. Here is a fun video introducing our partnership.

Now let’s get down to making the project… it is a fast one, but boy does it make an impact!

Boho Yarn Wall Hanging

Rose and Cedar Yarn Wall Hanging 4

Supplies Needed:

10″ Gold Crochet Hoop

32 cuts of Hot Pink Yarn in 36″ increments

32 cuts of Black Yarn in 36″ increments

16 cuts of White Yarn in 36″ increments

Scissors

Tape

These are the colors that I selected and what will come in the box. If you have yarn on hand get creative with the colors! 

 

Yarn Wall Hanging 13

Step One.

Take your gold hoop and one strand of the pink yarn. Fold the yarn in half lengthwise and place it under the gold hoop with a small area of over hang. Now, take the two strand ends and bring them over the hoop and through the loop and pull until it is smooth. You can compare it with the first loop that is completed in the picture above.

Yarn Wall Hanging 4

Step Two.

Repeat with the other 31 strands of the pink. You will then do 8 strands of white on either side and then 16 strands of black on the outside of the white. The chart above should be helpful.

If you notice that some of your strands are longer than others, don’t fret. We are going to shape everything up in the end and all will be fine. Scouts honor!

Yarn Wall Hanging 5

Step Three.

Put tape down to make a pointed shape. I used two pieces of painters tape, but any tape should work fine. Just be gentle when you remove it!

Now cut along the outer edge of the tape with a good pair of scissors.

Remove the tape and you are all done! So simple!

Yarn Hanging 3

You may need to pat down your yarn to make it nice and pretty and trim any strands that may need it. This photo should give you a great idea on how the wall hanging should look when you hang it.

Organize all of those tiny bottles of craft paint with this simple solution from Uncommon Designs

I am definitely one to go out and buy the commercial storage systems, assemble everything, and then never actually use it to its potential.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who does that… I’m working on it!

craft paint storage 1

I was desperate to get my craft paint organized.  It was literally all over the house.  I didn’t even know what all I had and it was quite possible that I had a few of the same exact colors, because I would just go out and buy more.  Something had to give and had to give soon.

Organize all of those tiny bottles of craft paint with this simple solution from Uncommon Designs

I was in Michaels and saw that they had a whole line of craft organization supplies.  I had already purchased a set of drawers and a desk top and been pretty pleased with it.  In that organization aisle, they had some storage cubes.  Truthfully, I had always wondered what people really put in those things… what would they actually corral?  Well folks… craft paint! And lots of it!  I threw two in my cart and was ready to get home and get organized.

Organize all of those tiny bottles of craft paint with this simple solution from Uncommon Designs

They were a cinch to put together and then I loaded them up with a rainbow of paints in each and every color.  Isn’t it so pretty?  The best part is that now I can really decide between shades of each color and have fewer trial runs when it comes to color selection.

Craft Room Inspiration via www.uncommondesignsonline.com #CraftOrganization #CraftRoom

You might remember seeing these little beauties when I shared my craft room.  I can honestly say that one year later this is easily one of the best storage solutions I’ve instilled in my home.  Call me cheesy, but all of those colors really make me happy!

Organize all of those tiny bottles of craft paint with this simple solution from Uncommon Designs

Be sure to head to Michaels this week and pick some up… I saw today that they are half off!!!

A Fresh and Clean Summer Laundry Room

Summer Laundry Room 1

Cue up the Stevie Wonder… “Isn’t she lovely… isn’t she wonderful…”. Yes friends, I am that excited that my laundry room is not only cleaned out, it is functional for all that we have going on this summer.

This was the current state of affairs as of yesterday. Stuff everywhere. Some of it was clean, some of it was dirty. Some of the clean things were getting mixed in with the dirty stuff and well…. then even the clean stuff became dirty again.  We also can’t forget that I am always finishing up a project and those odds and ends at the end of the project go somewhere… the laundry room. Gasp! I know, right?!

Before Summer Laundry Room 1

All of that being said… this is my problem. We go to the pool and beach all of the time. Sometimes even twice a day and my the beach towels around my house end up in a wad on the floor and I never feel like they smell fresh. Maybe it is mental… but I needed some good smelling towels and a little organization. Brace yourselves… this picture is a doozie, but I’m all about keeping things real.  Real dirty apparently!

Before Summer Laundry Room 2

Each summer I forget how busy we are. I long for the days of laying out by the pool reading a book or catching a nap on the back porch, but that just isn’t us!

PicMonkey Collage (11)

I headed to my one-stop shop, Wal-Mart and picked up two bottles of Purex® Crystals. The Fabulously Fresh is perfect for towels and athletic clothes and the Lavender Blossom is perfect for our sheets and bathroom towels. You can find them right in the laundry aisle at Wal-Mart. They are on Roll-Back now, too!

Purex Crystals Fabulously Fresh

Here is the best part about the Purex® CrystalsThe freshness lasts for 12 weeks! Yes, you heard that right. I love that my laundry will smell freshly washed for three months. Isn’t that amazing? Purex Crystals provide a great scent at a great price. Now on to the organization…

Summer Essentials Organization 1

This summer Lauren, my 9 year old is doing swim team and Ann, my teenager is always off somewhere with a friend and needing a towel or sunscreen. I needed a one stop shop for organization of beach towels and then all of the odds and ends.

Summer Essentials Organization

I picked up a plastic basket to keep our fresh towels and I can just fold them up and place them right there after they come out of the dryer. Towel problem solved!

Summer Essentials Organization 3

This nifty plastic bin is perfect to hold sunscreen, bug spray, goggles, even our favorite bluetooth speaker. I finally feel like I can tackle swim practice, meets, friend get-togethers, cheer practice and our normal family life. Whew… I am doing a little happy dance!

If you’d like to find out more about Purex Crystals and their 12 Weeks of Freshness, you can find them on Video, Facebook, Instagram and Amazon.

Be sure to pin the Summer Organization Station for Later!

Get your laundry room ready for the summer!  Have all of your beach towels in one place and a handy caddy for goggles, sunscreen and anything else you might need to grab and go!
