Easy Painted Burlap Sign

Howdy!  I am crazy this week.  Seriously. 

We are driving to Arizona, which is way cool, because we get to visit our old home and see our good friends!  Aaaaannnnnd...we are getting puppy.  Yep. Crazy.
So, while I am off on a grand adventure with my family, to which I hope we all survive (I am speaking about the puppy part :)  I hope you hop on over to Oh My! Creative and check out my latest project!

A fun and easy painted burlap sign!

Hugs!

Moments That Matter Most

I have heard a lot of people comment on how fast the summer is flying by, and they are SO right!  It is amazing to me how time speeds up, and life becomes so busy and crazy.  How quickly we get caught in the trap of getting things done and checking off the list of daily life, that sometimes we forget to stop and enjoy what matters most.

I have been really trying this summer to stop and enjoy the simple moments, and not get caught up in the world, but more in my family, and it is so wonderful!  When I remember and seek out what matters most in my life, I am truly happy.  And happiness is a precious gift.  All good things come of Christ.



I hope you take the time to enjoy what matters most in your life this week!

Hugs,
Mindi

Old Drawers into Porch Planters

Hello!  Today I am sharing a repurposed project, old drawers into porch planters.  I have seen drawers used for planters several times and loved them....so, here is my version.  This project was first seen on My Repurposed Life the end of May, and I have been enjoying them ever since so I am super happy to share finally them on my blog!

French Inspired Piano Bench Makeover

Hello!  Are you excited for the 4th of July tomorrow?  I sure am!

I have been spending time with family this week so I am pulling out a project that was first seen on My Repurposed Life.  It is a fun French inspired piano bench makeover.

Benches are one of my favorite things, besides crates, I LOVE crates too.  This bench was sitting out with someone's garbage in the rain, until I spotted it driving by....

My family is finally getting past the shame and embarrassment phase of me grabbing things from the trash.  In fact this bench was picked up by my oldest son, I didn't even have to get out of the car!  Yep, I am training them right!

Of course that was months ago, and the sad lonely discarded piano bench has since been residing in my basement.  Let's get a better look at the before.

And what was the problem you ask?  Well...

Super Simple Gift Crates

I am excited to finally share this project!  It has been almost a month since I made these super simple gift crates for my kids teachers. 
We were camping at a family reunion all last week and then we were really enjoying Father's day when I got some kind of stomach bug...ugh, I hardly ever get sick.  Now I know why, it stinks...

Upcycled Cupboard Door into Command Center

Wow, summer came to us with a bang this year!!  My kids have been out of school for a week and are reading up a storm and loving the time to just play.

I have been insanely busy with random things like presenting all day at a girls day camp and then running a service project for the women in my church.  To top it off we are leaving tomorrow for a family reunion and will be gone for a week so I will be MIA in blog land!  And.....before we leave in the morning my husband and I are doing a triathlon.  It will be my first open water swim so please pray I won't DIE!!!  Eeek!  I am insane.

With all that craziness going on I thought I would share one of my contributor projects that appeared about a month ago on My Repurposed Life, an upcycled cupboard door into command center!
