Rustic Ironman Medal Display

In my Updated Corner Shelf post I mentioned that we went to Disneyland as a family, well that isn't all we did. :)

We started our trip in Northern California so my husband could do his 4th Ironman Triathlon, which he got to complete with his brother.  Yay!!  It is always an amazing experience to watch these athletes pushing themselves to the limit, a true test of mental and physical endurance.  I have nothing but admiration and respect for every single one.  They inspire me.

So I thought I would make a Rustic Ironman Medal Display for my husband. 
I am loving this easy way to display Ironman medals, but it would also work for ANY type of medal collection!  This is a great gift idea too!

Updated Corner Shelf

Holy Guac!  I have been gone for a while, and I have missed you, my awesome readers!

After I attend the Haven Conference, that I mentioned I was at in my Floating Night Stand Post, we left on a two week family vacation.  It was amazingly fun and a much needed treat for our kids (and for me and my husband too), as we ended it with 5 days in Disneyland! Yay! :)

This week has been a relax and recover week, and it was much needed also.  Ha ha!  So, I thought I would share with you my Updated Corner Shelf that I posted earlier this year on My Repurposed Life...since I have been, you know, relaxing and recovering.
I love how this Updated Corner Shelf was transformed with simple touches like raised stencil decals, trim, and paint.

DIY Chalkboard Easel, made from picture frames

It is already the third week of Summer?  Crazy!  Our summer started off with a bang taking a surprise week long trip to the mountains.  It was SO fun, but with no advance notice I didn't get any blog posts scheduled.  Then we got home and my sister and her kids surprised us with a visit for about a week!  We had a blast!  It has been really nice to just chill and spend time with family.

So now you know why I have been MIA.  I have had several sick kiddo's too, and I just haven't been able to pull anything together...so I am going to share one of my contributor projects from My Repurposed Life, A DIY Chalkboard Easel, made from old picture frames.

Flapper Girl and Selfie Sign, Gatsby Style

A few months ago I had the opportunity to help a friend, that was in charge of "The wedding chapel" for our high school After Prom party.  I was super busy and didn't get to help her out as much as I had wanted, but I was able to make a Flapper Girl and Selfie Sign.  I guess it was better than nothing. 
Great ideas for a Gatsby themed party!  How to create a life sized silhouette cut out, and a selfie sign.

Rustic Pallet Jewelry Holder

I can't believe it is MAY!  Where is the time going?!  I love that it is spring and almost summer, but sometimes I wish time would stand still for a moment so I could take life in a little more.  

We went on a walk yesterday afternoon and it was so nice to watch the kids enjoy the simple things of nature, to hear the birds, see the beautiful colors, pick the tall grass, and just feel alive.  These are the moments I treasure, the moments that matter, the moments that connect me with my family, and even my own childhood.  They make me happy.  In a word?  Simplicity.  It seems lost in this busy busy world!
Use up some scrap pallet wood and some hardware cloth to make a beautiful Rustic pallet jewelry holder!
