Sweet Summertime -- Oh How Pinteresting!

Yep, I'm a stay at home mom. Yep, the days during the same are no different than those of any other season. Wait, yes they are. They are longer. And hotter. You know, hot enough to only be able to play outside early in the morning or late in the evening too close to W's bedtime. I suppose that's unless we are submerged in water which we plan to do quite often this summer.

I guess for me it's once a teacher, always a teacher.  Summer feels different to me and with that difference comes the spark to be productive. I like to do house projects in the summertime; I get more crafty this season. I want to be out of the house running errands more often. (Let it be noted that W, on the other hand, does not. I wonder if his Daddy is coaching him on that one. Hmmm... Momma must stay home therefore she cannot spend money. Makes sense!)

Anyway, I am determined to work on the walls of our house a bit and don't plan on painting. I want to think about gallery walls, curtains, etc.

With that in mind, I am not actively searching Pinterest for new ideas but instead will focus on what I've pinned and make some happen, and I need you to keep me accountable. Thanks in advance!

And it's Wednesday, and this post is for sure Pinteresting, and I haven't linked up in forever!

My current top 5 include:

1.





This is happening--glitter mess and all! I'm almost finished with this project to add to the rest of my patriotic summer mantle. It'll be ready for July 4 and will remain throughout the Olympics. USA! USA! I love the good old red, white, and blue, and it's time to decorate more fully for my favorite holiday. We are even planning a toddler Olympics playdate!

2.




I've just ordered the prints for this one. So excited! There are a few other IG displays I have pinned as well. Our house may soon become one big IG collage! 

3. 


I get it: The Sheriff is just about to turn 2 and is no Picasso, but we do craft, draw, and paint together. It saves my sanity, and I honestly think he likes seeing his work up around the house. I think these will be perfect.


4.










This one's practical; I've got a couple of shelves that need bins, so we'll work on this one.






5.


And finally, I've got to get my hands on an old door. I would love to make this one! Fingers crossed!

Great pins momma!! Love number 3 for sure. I'm so not crafty so can I buy those from somewhere lol? Or can I buy from you? Lol I'm a fan of showcasing art work or even school work that deserves the special mention for getting an A+ but the fridge needs not be the place lol. Oh and the IG collage and that door thing are cool! I am going to hold you accountable bec I want you to make me one so I can buy them from you!! :)
