Spruce Up Your Entry Way For Spring

Spruce up your Entryway for Spring

Hey, hey Snappy peeps!  It's Jessica from Mom 4 Real back to share another fun, colorful project!  I am sooooo ready for better weather...hasn't this been the longest winter ever? I've been adding springy touches all over our home, but when I walked in our front door the other day, I realized that the first impression of our home was just blah.  So, I decided to do a spring spruce up in our entry  way! I mean, just look at this mess...dead wreath on the door from Christmas (shameful), dead leaves floating across the floor, a basket full of flip flops and boots (which makes no sense at … [Read more...]

Show + Tell: Great Easter Ideas

Great Easter Ideas

It's a bit crazy around here...Snap is right around the corner and I cannot wait!!! In the meantime, I had a lot of fun checking out all of your posts this week. Did you know that I really check out almost every single post linked up? Obviously, I am better some weeks than others, but I actually found many of my contributors and team members via the Snap linky. I was sad to see a thread on Facebook this week about how bloggers don't like to check out the highlights and skip right through them. I know I put a lot of time into compiling the highlights here and you're taking the time to … [Read more...]

Make an Upcycled Infinity Scarf from an old T-shirt

Hello friends! It is McKenzie from Girl Loves Glam here! Spring always brings the most interesting weather. It will be cold in the mornings, then hot enough to wear your shorts in the afternoon. I absolutely love dressing in layers during Spring because I am able to take off layers as the day heats up. Layers are also a great way to add fun splashes of color to your wardrobe to really brighten up an outfit and welcome in Spring. My favorite way to layer up during the springtime is with a scarf! They are great because they can be any color or print and you won't feel like you are being to wild … [Read more...]
