cashing in your chips.

pic from modern parents messy kids blog
I have a fascination with paint chips lately. What's not to love? They're free, beautiful, lots of variety to choose from, and so many ways to use them!  My first project with the chips were home made Valentine's cards.  They were so much fun to make and so easy.  I can't wait to use these in so many more projects!

All the supplies you need, but not limited to, for a 'paint chip card' are:
  • paint chips of varying colors
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • decorative stamps
  • ink pad
  • Sharpie
  • and some creativity to suit your occasion
Here are two of mine...

What's better than cake?  Multi-colored cake of course.  
This month I had the honor of making cute cupcakes for one of my best friend's baby shower, and an awesome cake for my little sister's visit home!  The baby shower was a "woodland" theme, complete with little birds, owls, and branches.  The invite had a cream background with a small bird on a branch, so I re-created the same look on the cupcakes.  I added just an extra layer of neatness, by dying some of the batter blue!

My hubby wanted to make cake for my sister, and he was so excited to make it super bright colors.  We made the brightest hues we could and then dropped spoonfuls in the dish, to marble together.  It makes an awesome effect, I can't wait to try neon colors! :]  Oh and what cake wouldn't be complete without a ton of sprinkles!?

We have a great (almost) weekly event with our dear friends The Walters; B&B night.  Beer & Board game night consists of each couple buying a 6 pack and getting together for a game, taste testing new brew, and late night snacks!  We decided to switch it up this weekend and headed down the block to our local brewery.  It was so much fun! Live music, sharing all the great “tastes” we got, and fun conversation!  Our guys love to talk cars, and us girls just giggle about random stuff!  I can’t wait to do it again!  These friends are friends everyone should have.  We get together numerous times a month for morning coffee, old movies, B&B, and shopping trips!  Since living down-town, we have found tons of gems to go out and experience, but more sharing on that another time!
p.s. excuse the pics! they are from a phone… hopefully that will change soon lol

switching things up!

I'm an avid blog reader and absolutely love finding new ideas on the web!  I've started my own blog to share in the experience and the nifty ideas I find and create. Plus, what a great way to document my life!  Look out for "snapshot Sundays", as well as "find Fridays" as weekly additions to the blog! :] Happy reading...
