Simple St. Patrick's Day Ideas | MyPaintingShirt.com

St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be all about leprechauns and green beer.  I’m all about a good party, but getting vomited on by a stranger on the street at 3:00 in the afternoon is not my idea of a good time.

Instead, I decided to do a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner at home with a few green and gold touches and a shamrock or two.

Pinterest Craft Day | MyPaintingShirt.com

Pinterest is full of crafty ideas that utilize the paint chips that you pick up at the home improvement store.  So today I decided to put some of those crafts to the test and see if my versions turned out similar to the ones on Pinterest!  My goal was to make my finished products look like the images I found on Pinterest while spending the least amount of money possible. Today’s projects include a mini square gift box with lid, favor gift holders, a mobile, owl wall art, and a flower canvas.

Avengers Birthday Party!

I have been wanting to doing a superhero party for a while and with the new Avengers movie out, it was the perfect time!  This party was so much fun, I love the bright colors, the kids (and adults) loved the games, masks, and capes, and I loved how the cake turned out! In this podcast I’ll cover how-to’s for the masks, capes, cake, comic popcorn cones, Hulk smash wall, Hawkeye bad guy target shoot, and lots of food and decorating ideas.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this year I wanted to try out six crafts I found on Pinterest that looked like they would make great gifts. I made all six in two days, so they aren’t hugely time consuming and they still give that personal touch. The best part is, you can make each of these fairly cheaply and keep to your budget!
