insta-pics #53

Well I have definitely been slacking on insta-pic posts but as you can see we've been having a fun filled summer! We've been camping, visiting with family and friends, spending time at our local spray park, going to the mountains and exploring, we went to the fair...... it's been a blast! 
Although summer is soon coming to an end I have to admit I crave getting back into routine and I love the fall season here. S will be starting Preschool this year so we have been getting ready for that as well as her 4th birthday next week! Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!

Happy Tuesday!

Making old new: Frame


I bought this frame at a garage sale two years ago for two bucks! It sat in waiting to be transformed. Well that day came a couple three-ish months ago. I spray painted the outside a pretty blue and the inside trim silver. I then added three lengths of wire to hang pictures from. But it has hung on the wall without anything ever since. You may have caught a glimpse of it at T's party way back in June!

Well I finally found the perfect little clothespins at Micheals and printed off some of my Instagram pictures. 
I love it and I am kicking myself for not filling it sooner.

My living room corner is now almost complete!
Other projects pictured: Scrabble Decor, Side Table, Pray More Canvas.

Happy Friday!

Something I need to do.

I'm a big worrier by nature (my mom passed on that wonderful trait) and I don't like it, to much stress.
When I saw this pin from Beyond Blessed Blog I knew I wanted this saying somewhere out in the open as a constant reminder.
I had bought these two canvas's at dollarama for $2 each with the intentions of painting over them.

 With the help of my cricut and some vinyl, this is what I did:


Easy Peasy!
I put it on the side table in the living room so I see it many times a day. A perfect reminder!
Happy Friday!

Inspired by a bag of coffee.

This post is extemely overdue! If you follow my page on facebook you may have gotten the heads up that my camera is broken.

Lack of pictures = lack of posts
So I have put together a couple of posts with my Iphone 3 photos (ugh). 
Please bare with me until I get a new camera....

This project all started with this bag of coffee that I spotted in the airport Starbucks on the way to New York. I loved the design and colors! As usual I was wanting to add more color in my home decor and thought I would recreate it on canvas.
I have given glimpses in a couple of my instapics posts. But just in case you missed it here's a good look at the process and the final product.

Happy Tuesday!
