DIY Pinwheel Art at Making the World Cuter #30minutecraft

Like I've said in previous posts, I am hanging on to summer as long as I can! I can feel the pull towards back to school crafts and shopping, but I am doing all I can to push back and enjoy the carefree days at least a few days longer and that means making a few more quick summer 30 minute crafts. This one I have to say is my absolute favorite yet! I love the fun and whimsy of this cute pinwheel art! This project took less than 30 minutes, and gave me a nice little break from looking at furniture sets for my daughter. Yes, that would be another project I want to get started on, even though we have about 20 different projects that we are in the middle of. I have a short attention span...hence the need for quick little crafts like this one!

Cute Bathroom Tray for Tweens and Teens

Cute Organized Bathroom Tray for Tweens or Teens

This post brought to you by Listerine. All opinions are 100% mine.   I am in the throes of tweendom with my daughter right now. She is still an angel child, so she hasn't reached full teenage hormones yet, but she likes to be pretty and she is starting to care (finally) about hygiene a little more! Her bathroom counter was starting to look like an accessory store threw up on her counter with all of her hair clips, lip glosses and jewelry loose. Not to mention her toothbrush, and other necessities sitting in a sad little cup not doing much for the cuteness factor! Enter the cute bathroom tray! I grabbed a cute coral tray at Target, and made some darling jars that I'll show you the how-to in the next week or so and went to work filling them with the necessities. She has drawers, she just doesn't seem to know how to use them. :)   I don't know if you noticed but that Listerine bottle back there makes me giddy! I LOVE it! There are four different designs ...

Ross Dress For Less Giveaway

Ross Dress for Less Giveaway at Making the World Cuter

OOH fun! I LOVE a good treasure hunt, which means I love shopping at Ross Dress for Less! A brand new store just opened here in Bend, Oregon where I live, so I was able to go to the grand opening and see all the fun stuff. I love that you can find that perfect summer outfit or stock up on all your back to school essentials! At 20-60% off department store prices, Ross is my go-to source to find my favorite brands for less. They were nice enough to send me a gift card so that I could bring some of the treasures I found home. I took just one of my kids who loves to shop almost as much as I do. My little Oliver wakes up and asks to go shopping...I love this kid!  I also met up with my BFF who also happens to be my baby sister and her little girl (who decided it was a good day to dress like Minnie Mouse, but isn't every day a good day for that?).  Excuse the no makeup look and the pulled back hair, I was in my serious shopping mode! After looking through all of the cute clothes and ... [ Read More ]
