  • I made a new Patriotic Wreath and love how it looks above my 4th of July mantle.
  • With all the wonderfully fresh produce in stores and at farmer's markets, I updated my Rainbow Fruit Salad post and every time I look at the photos I want to make another bowl full!
  • Spend some time crafting with your tween when you make Painted Tote Bags.

Crafting With Tweens - Stencil Painted Tote Bags

Tweens are always in need of a tote bag - a trip to the library, toys to take to their grandparent house, dry clothes for a trip to the pool, or snacks for a days outing. They can easily make their bags super cute by adding a little color to it.

This is my first post in the series "Crafting With Tweens". There are so many craft/activity ideas for preschool and kindergarten age children, but the older kids, the 8-11 tweens sometimes miss out on crafty projects that they will like. As I do projects with my girls, I will share the easy tutorials on here so my readers can get ideas of craft projects for their older kids.

DIY Patriotic Paper Straw Wreath

Celebrate the summer with a new wreath for your front door! This patriotic red, white, and blue wreath made with paper straws is simple to make and will look great on your door or in your home. You can leave this wreath up all summer long to celebrate the holidays that honor our brave military men and women.

If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I love to make wreaths for the different seasons and holidays throughout the year. For the past few years I have decorated my door for the summer with my DIY Patriotic Clothespin Wreath, which I love. This year I decided to try out a new wreath and share the simple tutorial with you.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 154

Happy Friday! As we head into the weekend, I'm looking forward to visiting the farmer's market to find the freshest produce for the upcoming week. Depending on what we find, I'll probably be trying out some new grilling recipes. You can see some of my favorite grilling recipes on my Recipes - Grilling Pinterest Board. We are also going to the library to get a new batch of books - my kids are working hard on earning their Summer Reading rewards!

This is my first week co-hosting my favorite link party - The Ultimate Pinterest Party. I've been linking up to the party for 2 years and when Tammy asked for help co-hosting, I knew it was something that I wanted to do. Whether you are a blogger looking to get your pins circulated a bit, or someone looking for a variety of content (recipes, DIY projects, decor, family, pretty much anything!) this is the perfect place to visit!

Thank you for participating in The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

I'm so excited to start co-hosting this party! It will be great to get to see the wonderful content shared in the link party and I look forward to pinning the posts to our Party Pinterest Board  as well as sharing on my social media with my followers there. Don't forget to check back next Friday to see if you are featured. Now, on to the party!
