Amazing Find for Anyone That Has a Fire Pit or Campfires!

We had a busy and fun weekend.  We visited several places including the Gorge.  Jessy had her first REAL ice cream cone which was as big as her face!  We flew kits... We had family over for dinner, pumpkin pickin' and a fire in the fire pit.  Plus we went to a local market for pony rides, apple cider, carmel apples and all kinds of fun!

The BEST thing though was these fire packets that we used in the fire.  You know how you can sit there for EVER starring into a fire because its so mesmerizing... what if you're fire looked like THIS?

These fire packets are available HERE and you just toss 2 or 3 in the fire pit and you have amazing colors dancing for a good 30 minutes.  TOTALLY worth it.  If you have a fire pit or go camping alot this fall, you NEED these!!

Even Liam stayed up to sit by the fire!

What do you guys think?  Should I do a giveaway on these color fire packets??

Happy Labor Day Weekend and Another FREE Print Giveaway!

We are busy getting ready (even though its 3 weeks away) for Liam's 1st Birthday!!!  But we are also talking of all things fall, and Halloween.  Jessy has been singing Trick or Treat songs for the last few weeks thanks to videos on Youtube.  Sigh...  And of course the stress of figuring out a costume not only for her but you know kids want their parents to dress up too... Eeek!

So in the spirit of the season I'm giving away this print for the next 24 hours. It's my husband's favorite Halloween one.  Who doesn't love Shakespeare? Click here to download the image.

This is how we display ours in our home.

I'm really wanting to give back this season so if there is any quote you would like to see for any of the upcoming holidays comment below and you just might see it pop up!!

Have a great weekend!

IKEA Hack the Second Time!

So we are in the process of getting ready for our son's 1st birthday.  Of course its going to be Seahawk's themed if anyone couldn't guess.  I was looking at Jessy's old table and chairs that I put padding and upholstered for her 2nd Christmas... she doesn't use it anymore and Liam is starting to get to that point pretty soon... so I decided to recover the seats... What do you think?

It's really so easy to do.

I purchased the Sundvik table and chairs from Ikea. . Purchased this 1 inch foam and traced the seat top onto it and cut it out, really simple.  Then cover the chair in whatever fabric you like and staple into place.  It really takes about 30 minutes and its totally custom to you!

I show you in this older blog post how I did the original one.
