TX Pinners Conference in September. It is a two day conference full of 'pinteresting' activities and speakers. Everything from home decor to fashion, cooking to make-up, fitness to crafts. This Conference has it all! And it is the perfect excuse for you to get your girl friends together for some fun.I am always looking for something fun to do my girl friends- a special event or activity that gives a great excuse for a Girls Outing. A movie premier, a birthday dinner, shopping. I love getting time with friends. Which is why I am really excited about the
few things that I really wanted to do before my girls went back to school. (See this post for all 5 ideas). And I am excited to say that I got one of the big ones done! I love, love, love the idea of a "Back to School Feast"- so I decided to do it!
Some people have already headed back to school, others aren't going back until after Labor Day. And here in Texas, we start on August 22nd. Which means we have less than a week. Eeek! Our summer has been so fun, busy, relaxing, crazy, and really hot. But I am ready to get back into our routine and start all of our fun fall activities. My girls will be in 1st and 5th grade this year. They can't wait to meet their new teachers and see who is in their class. I am excited for them! The First Day of School is a big deal. So I made a little "Happy First Day of School" gift to give to their teachers.
Pinterest and the craft world. I have at least 4 tassels necklaces (3 that I made myself!), one tassel bracelet, and several tassels that are literally hanging around the house on pillows and such. I thought that I had enough tassels in my life. But honestly... can you ever have enough tassels?? No. No. You cannot. So when I was prepping for my daughter's cheer camp decor (see this post) I decided to try making Crepe Paper Tassel Garland.
Cinnamon Shore. Why?? Because it is the best beach in Texas and only 6.5 hours from our house. The property is adorable and the activities are fun.
This Craft Challenge- named the "Sweet Tea Challenge"is hosted by KariAnne at Thistlewood. The goal of the competition is to create something fun with the fabric charm packs we got at Jemma's recent blog party. And like I said, I am always up for a crafty challenge.
