Show + Tell No. 137: Cute Halloween Ideas


I am suffering from a slight bout of Halloween depression. I only have one little trick-or-treater left. His older brothers have decided they are "too old" at least one or two years too early for my taste. It appears there is nothing left but to live through you guys and your phenomenal projects. I thought today I would share a few of the cute Halloween ideas shared in last week's linky. Show + Tell Highlights I am a sucker for "31" projects and I love this cheerful Halloween pillow. Thirty One Pillow via The Happy Scraps Holy cow. An adorable Halloween "wreath" for less than $5? Yes, … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 136: Halloween Ideas


I am typically pretty invested in my Halloween decorating. This year, I decided to go with a simple harvest theme in my house. I haven't had a giant change of heart. Basically I am trying to make sure that I don't have Halloween decor up for Thanksgiving this year. Since I am feeling a little depressed about my lack of scary, I am going to highlight some fun Halloween projects that were linked up. Show + Tell Highlights I love the girls from My Sister's Suitcase and today I am doing something I rarely do...sharing two of their projects (totally fair since there are two sisters)! Gumball … [Read more...]

Happy Show + Tell everyone! I am so excited to see what you've been up to...I've decided that I can no longer look at Show + Tell links before I've had dinner. I start craving all sorts of crazy goodness like these maple bacon cookies and I am trying to stay away from sugar! There were about a million tasty recipes posted to Show + Tell last week and I encourage you to go peruse. However this week, I wanted to showcase a few of my favorite craft projects. Show + Tell Highlights Subway art is a fall must and I was so excited to see this fun version pop up from my friend Samantha. Fall … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 133: Fall Crafting

brown bag popcorn

You guys. I am the worst. I am the most distracted person in the universe. Seriously. Squirrel. Geesh. Tonight I decided to hop out to a group get together last minute, forgetting all responsibility and planning...You know, small things like putting my weekly link up on time. Sigh... Forgive me? Show + Tell Highlights I love popcorn. I go through phases where I eat it for meals. When I saw this brown butter cinnamon sugar recipe, it took me about three seconds to save it for the future...

Show + Tell No. 131


It's been a busy couple of weeks around here...I don't know about you, but every year when kids head back to school I somehow think that I am going to have a ton of extra time to accomplish. All that happens is that I end up over scheduling. I have the same problem with money...I tend to spend $100 in my head 50 different ways and then can't figure out why it doesn't go all that far in real life. The blog has been somewhat quiet, but behind the scenes we've been getting ready for Snap. So excited about all the super-fun plans underway this year! If you're thinking about getting a ticket, … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 129


Eek! You guyyyyys, I love this time of year! Seriously. Fall has always been my favorite and I know it's time to get excited when football starts showing up on the telly. It's also fun, because it feels like all of the moms come back off summer vacation (don't we know it's anything but a vacation though), because the kiddies are back in school.  Kids in school = soooo many great projects!!! No theme today, just a lot of great stuff to showcase! Show + Tell Highlights Remember a week or so ago when I shared my Kate Spade inspired phone case? Well now that I've seen what Rebecca has been … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 126: Homemade Ice Cream Treats

Delicious ice cream recipes via @snapconf #icecream #recipe

Let's chat. I love ice cream. I love it way too much for my own good... I blame the fact that I live in Utah, where we have the eighth highest ice cream consumption rate in the country. Well, that and the fact that my dad worked for a famous ice cream manufacturer while in college and developed a taste for the real good stuff, which he passed on to each of his kids... I've been trying to cut back this summer, but then you had to go and share some tasty recipes in last week's link-up. A batch of homemade happened, along with a selection of highlights that all feature the delicious … [Read more...]

Watermelon Cucumber Cooler via Homespun with Love

You guys, it's not quite August and already I feel summer is coming to an end. Sad. The television is showing back-to-school ads non-stop and while the boys don't go back to school for three more weeks, I am starting to see first day of school posts popping up in my Instagram feed! Where did it go? Truthfully, I am looking forward to the routine that comes with a more regular schedule. We've got some fun things planned and I can't wait to share them with you. In the meantime, I thought we could all hang on to summer a little bit longer with a handful of the great summertime ideas that … [Read more...]
