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.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 158

Here we are at another Friday! I'm looking forward to the weekend - sleeping in on Saturday, visiting the local farmers market, a neighborhood BBQ, and spending time with my family. What great plans to look forward to! What do you have planned for the weekend?

I don't have any new posts to share with you this week. My husband and oldest were out of town camping and I was busy having fun with my youngest. I've got some good posts planned next week though that I think all of you will really like!!

In the meantime, you can check out the links here at The Ultimate Pinterest Party! If you are a blogger, leave a link to a pin you want to get in front of a new audience. If you aren't a blogger, take a look at the family-friendly pins.

Thank you for participating in The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

  • Cool down with this family friendly Shirley Temple with a Twist drink recipe. It brings back such good memories of special dinners out with my family.
  • Come see some thrift store makeovers at the Inspire My Creativity craft challenge link up. I share the easy tutorial on how I took a plain bucket and made it super cute for my girls to hold their hair and beauty supplies.

Thank you for participating in The Ultimate Pinterest Party!


Shirley Temple With a Twist Recipe

This recipe for a Shirley Temple With a Twist is refreshing, sparkly, and will please kids and adults alike. This is a fun drink to make for a festive occasion, or to make an ordinary day a little more special.

When I was little and we went to a "fancy" restaurant, well at least to an eight year old it was, I always ordered a Shirley Temple to drink. It was something I always looked forward to - the sweet and fizzy soda with a few maraschino cherries added an extra specialness to an evening out with the family.

Inspire My Creativity - Fabric Decorated Galvanized Bucket

It's so easy to add a little extra color and style to an already cute storage bin or bucket, when you take 15 minutes to do a little decor makeover. I have a simple makeover that will look great in any room!

I love shopping at thrift stores and looking for the perfect item that is waiting for a  makeover. Some of my favorite projects (this sign and this Lego Dollhouse Tray for example) have been items I've found at our local thrift store and used a little imagination and a bit of makeover magic to create something that I really love. Join me for a look at this easy makeover to a cute little galvanized bucket I found during one of my recent trips to the thrift store.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 156

This past week we had a great family and friend celebration for the 4th of July. It was a fun time, good food, fireworks, and night games. I love summer celebrations with warm evenings, tasty food, and great company.

easy diy patriotic bracelet tutorial for Tweens

lately I've been working on a few 4th of July decor projects, and my girls wanted to make something too. Right now they love bracelets, they usually have 3 or 4 on at a time. I had a stash of patriotic fabric, so we decided to make them a few bracelets they can wear for the 4th of July and all through the summer.
