Today was a great day for a Teddy Bear Picnic with Blaire. That's what grandmas do. Unfortunately, Kacey's $15 garage sale table and chairs looked like this at 8:30 this morning: I’ve been dying to create the latest "driftwood" or "weathered wood" look. However, the weathered wood products on the market call for hours of sanding to get to the bare wood, and we didn't have that kind of time. I’m all about instant … [Read more...]

Hi there! It's Rachel from Like a Saturday with you here today! :) Since I was here last, my life has been flipped upside down in the very best of ways! My husband and I have been in the process to adopt for the last several months. Last month we got a surprise call from our agency letting us know that we had been chosen as parents, our daughter had been born, and then 24 hours later we got to meet her! It has been … [Read more...]

As you all know, I am a Mom of four kiddos, and during the Spring, we basically live at the baseball fields. We are usually at baseball three times a week. It’s a ton of fun for our family and last year I discovered a trick that is so simple and will hopefully help you too. May I present to you…. THE BASEBALL BAG. If your kids are anything like mine they beg to get something from the snack shack every. single. … [Read more...]

I just HAD to share this fun Purple Minion Valentine Box that my son and Hubby made yesterday. Didn't it turn out DARLING!?! I'm so proud of my boys! All I did to help was make the white vinyl pieces and buy them the purple pipe cleaners!   My kids love crafting, and it makes my heart even happier when we do it as a family. I wish I would have taken pictures of the process, but to be honest, I wasn't … [Read more...]

Hi All Things Thrifty friends! I'm Mique from Thirty Handmade Days and the Queen Bee Market. I'm so happy to be here today to share a simple little idea to kick off summer. It's hard to believe that summer is just around the corner! Pretty soon my three kids will be out of school and we'll have a couple of months to sleep in (ha! I hope!) and have some fun. I was at the store recently and saw a sand bucket and some … [Read more...]

Today I get to be on Studio 5, a morning show in Utah, and I’m excited to show my fun spinning chore chart on the show today! This project was a challenge from Studio 5 to make something fun out of 2 Lazy Susans from IKEA. IKEA is one of my fave stores on the planet. In fact, before IKEA was available in Utah, I would travel to California specifically to visit IKEA. I know, it may sound silly to you, but it’s the … [Read more...]

Happy Valentine's Day! Why not start the day off with a Pink Dresser transformation. Painting furniture is one of my favorite things to do around here because it can save a TON of money. Most of the time the style of an old/thrifted dresser far exceeds the style of a new dresser and its hefty price tag. I have been working on my girls' beautiful room for awhile, and my cute hubby found this amazing dresser at the DI … [Read more...]

I use my Silhouette all the time. I love it, and my kids all needed Valentine boxes for their class parties tomorrow, so we whipped out these bad boys in about an hour.   We use double-sided adhesive to make some really fun glitter hearts! It was super easy!     I use my Portrait a lot because it’s little and I can get it all set up quick. The Silhouette Portrait and the double-sided adhesive kit is on … [Read more...]
