The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 161

Happy Friday! I hope that your week was a good one and that you can find some time to relax this weekend. What do you do on the weekend to relax? DIY projects, read some good books, family outings, or movies? We usually watch a movie and go on a family outing to explore the natural beauty here in Utah.

  • For the second month of the Inspire My Creativity Party, we were challenged to create a project using Chalk Paint. I made over a wood organizer to help contain all the odds and ends in my junk drawer. I loved how smooth the spray chalk paint worked and can't wait to create another project using it.
  • During the summer, a visit to the local farmers market is a must. I shared on Instagram the tasty items we bought. Doesn't the fire grilled pizza look mouthwatering!

Thank you for participating in The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

Inspire My Creativity - Chalk Paint Desk Drawer Organizer

We all have one of those drawers, don't we? A catch all for pretty much every little thing in our life. Pens, lip gloss, spare change, little pieces of fabric or scrapbook paper all get lost there. Well, maybe the last two are just the crafter in me.

It's a relief when we can find those little things that we are looking for, and have it look pretty at the same time is an added bonus. Using chalk paint to make a desk drawer organizer look nice is an easy and quick project.

You can find wood desk drawer organizers at pretty much any store. Plain brown wood works, but it looks so much nicer with some color to it. Pick your favorite colored paint to work with, one that will make you smile when you see it. Then keeping all your little items organized isn't such a chore anymore!

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 160

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have had a great week and have some fun plans to look forward to this weekend. We are going to have a Family Movie Night tonight and yummy Rainbow Fruit Salad for breakfast on Saturday.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 159

Can you believe this is the last Friday in July!? Where did the summer go? We have had a great time playing in the water, having BBQ's with our neighbors, finishing our summer reading, and having a lot of fun together as a family! What have been your favorite summer adventures?

This week my computer finally gave up on me and I had to buy a new one. While I'm excited to have a dependable computer again, my week revolved around comparison shopping and driving to stores all around. I did update a few post images though, so I will share those with you. Next week I am excited to announce that I will be having a giveaway for National Coloring Book Day (yes, surprisingly it is a real thing). Check back on my blog next Tuesday or at the party next week for that!

Since Tammy is having some computer trials and couldn't post this week, I decided to feature 4 pins from last weeks link party instead of just 2.

Here are the MAIN RULES:

  • Rule #1:  Link up only 2 PINS (not blog posts.)
  • Rule #2:  Do NOT re-pin from the linky below.
  • Rule #3:  You must commit to re-pinning from THE ULTIMATE PARTY BOARD on SATURDAY or SUNDAY. (Re-pin from the pins that say "The Ultimate Party, Week 159 pins.")
  • Rule #4: Please only link up your own original pins that contain your images to this party.  Do not link up pictures of other bloggers that you may have included in a round-up.  Your collage of pictures for a round-up would be fine.
  • Rule #5: Please do not link up sale posts from your blog or sale posts that go to Etsy or Ebay --only pins that go to actual blog posts on your blog. Thank you.

Details to Observe:

  • Before you link up the pin, click on the pin and make sure it takes you to your post, not your home page. 
  • Pins that are linked up should be new to this party.
  • Linking up to this party gives the hosts permission to use a picture and a link to your post if they feature your post on their blogs or social media.
  • Creative K Kids is not responsible for stolen images or the mis-use by others who have found your image through CreativeKKids.com.
