Mother's Day Card to Print, cut and Color

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I have a fun {free} printable to share with you. Adult coloring is all the rage right now. If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon, you totally should! This fun card can be printed and colored by a little one {or a big one} to give to someone, or you can print out a whole stack full, tie a ribbon around and give it as a gift card set. It's fun and I know you have someone in mind who would love to receive this!

Tips for Visiting Las Vegas if you DON'T Drink or Gamble

I feel like I am the last person in the world to visit Las Vegas, Nevada. To be honest, I didn't really see the appeal. I'm not a big drinker or a gambler and while I like shows, I'm just as happy to check out the shows that come to me locally versus traveling somewhere to catch one. When a trip I had planned got canceled at the last minute, and my kids were already booked on their own adventure, my husband and I were left without kids for a week. I am a sun seeker so we immediately started looking for a plan B. Spring travel can be expensive with many schools and families traveling for spring break, so many options were just too pricey to consider. However, if we wanted to spend some time in the sun, Vegas was a great option that wasn't too expensive or difficult to get to. We spent some time asking ourselves if we really could have fun as a couple in Vegas if we didn't drink and gamble. The answer is yes! If you think drinking and gambling is all that Vegas has to offer, you might be missing out on some great adventure. I'm sharing some ways you can have fun in Sin City, without selling your soul.

DIY Aged TerraCotta Pots

I love a good deal almost as much as I love a good before and after. It's even better when both come together and create a project I've been drooling over in the stores but haven't necessarily been able to pull the trigger to buy. There is far more satisfaction in creating something rather than purchasing a completed piece, and if I can do it on a budget, then it's a major bonus! I love the current farmhouse style trend and love being able to bring some living greenery inside and this project mixes both of those with an updated thrift store find. 

I do a lot of thrift store and garage sale shopping and while it's sometimes hard to get creative and see past the current state of an item, it's possible. I usually have to remind myself multiple times to look at the bones of something and get past the current color. In fact, color is one of the easiest things to change. I have a huge stash of spray paint in many different colors because it's such a quick transformation for so many items.

I found this hot pink wooden tray at my local second hand store. It looked like it had a bad spray paint job, but overall, it was an interesting shape and I knew I could look past the color since I could easily change it with some spray paint. 

I love the look of an aged terracotta pot but not necessarily the price tag or the time it would take to create one, so I found a way to create my own DIY aged terracotta and I found that four pots would fit perfectly into my newly spray painted tray.
