McCall Idaho, Summer Vacation

It's time for another travel post! For most of us, the weather is cold and dreary. So let's travel back in time to summer. Let's travel back to our August trip to McCall, Idaho. Come with me and see the sunshine and mountains.

       
This post is written like a travel diary, a day-to-day account of what we did during a full week in Idaho. There are lots of photos and details about trails, food, and more!

Long Weekend in Scottsdale, AZ

Besides crafting, my other favorite hobby is traveling! Happily, Jeff enjoys this hobby too :) Our most recent adventure was to Scottsdale, Arizona to celebrate Jeff's 42nd birthday. If you are looking for a fun long weekend, check out Scottsdale.



We had a blast- read on to see what we did, where we stayed, and what we ate!

Fall Trail Mix Bar

Once a month, our middle school PTA hosts some kind of 'staff appreciation' event. Sometimes it's a full meal. Other times it's just a treat. For October, we decided to do a 'Trail Mix Bar'. I love snacky foods (who doesn't?!!) so this was a fun event to plan. This 'Trail Mix Bar' would be perfect for a birthday party, baby shower or any event where you want to present yummy munchies in a cute way.

Glamping Party & Using a Cricut to Make Feather Earrings

My baby turned nine years old! To celebrate, she simply wanted a sleepover at home. So I started planning! We decided on a 'glamourous camping theme' also know as 'glamping'. Part of this was due to the adorable tent we bought for camping... but have yet to use! So with our theme in mind and a handful of excited guests, it was party time!

PTA Ideas for Kicking Off the Year!

Probably the most busy time in the PTA world is the beginning of the school year. PTA volunteers are organizing school supplies, teacher luncheons, membership drives, meetings with administration, training for new board members, and more! In the interest of 'sharing is caring' -- I thought I would show what we did at our elementary school. Hopefully it will give you a few ideas you can use on your campus.

PTA Luncheon- Science Lab Theme

I am in full PTA mode over here! When I think about volunteering, I want to live the motto "I don't have to volunteer, I get to volunteer!". It's a privilege to have the time and resources to serve others.  And one of my favorite groups of people to serve are "teachers".

Teachers! What can I say? Have you been into a school lately?!! Teaching is not a job for the faint of heart! So let's take care of teachers. And the best way to do that ... is with food.

NBC's "Making It"- Jemma is my Mom!

Did you watch "Making It" on NBC? It was the first season of the 'craft challenge' reality show hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman.  The light-hearted show featured a group of 8 crafters who completed weekly craft challenges in the hopes of earning the status of "Master Crafter". And guess what? My mom was one of the 'crafters'!

The show "Making It" was such a whirlwind adventure for my mom (on her blog she goes by the name Jemma). Who would have thought my very own mom, who grew up on a little farm in Idaho, who is the Grammy to my girls, would end up on a prime-time NBC show?! As my mom says, you never know when something amazing thing is about to happen. And that couldn't be more true!

I am sharing them all today- PLUS a fun $50 giveaway & free products for you!

DIY Crafts for Tweens : Dream Catchers

One of our favorite things to do in the summer is craft (of course). As the girls get older, I keep looking for new ideas to keep them interested and inspired. I have been fortunate that Craft Project Ideas sends me a box of goodies several times a year. The box contains a variety of beads, string, stickers, paint, pipe cleaners, sequins, and glitter. Then the fun part is up to us... what to make?! 

How about Dream Catchers?
