Free Flag Printable

So I know it's a little early for July 4th decor, but I was bored at work so decided to make this while the kids were at school and the baby was sleeping. I used a stock photo and Picnik to edit it. I like how it turned out...hope you do too!

Weekend In Review

We got a new umbrella and hammock for out backyard! They look like this...
how exciting!

We've been attending a local church and became members today! Then there was a picnic that followed at a park nearby! We had a blast, but there were ticks everywhere, including the two I found crawling on me shortly after leaving (icky!).

I finally found the perfect knobs for the dresser I'm working on. I've installed them and painted the dresser! I'll show you the whole dresser tomorrow, but for now, here's a sneak peak at the knobs...


Overall, a pretty fun and productive weekend! What about you guys? Do anything fun and exciting?

What I've Been Up ToThis Week

I threw a birthday party for my mom,

TIP: for an inexpensive table runner use wrapping paper
made some coasters out of tile and scrapbook paper for part of her present (the other part was the painted garden sign),

and painted some fun plates at a paint your pottery place

I'm currently working on a pinwheel mobile, and I'm still working on the dresser I've been posting about redoing forever...I can't figure out what I want to do with it!
