It’s a Pinterest Party!

Are using Pinterest to it’s full potential?

I’ve seen an awful lot of people bashing Pinterest lately, my least favorite is the quote that says something like … Pinterest is a place for things you can never afford, never obtain, never make or never be clever or creative enough to do on your own.

Could we get any more pessimistic than that? nope, don’t think so. Besides, these people are missing the whole point!

Pinterest is the place where you can catalog your dreams, plan for your future and develop your own personal style. Seriously, in the year I have been pinning I have learned more about the “real me” than I ever knew before. When the real me starts to feel cloudy, all I have to do is check out my boards and there I am all laid out in full color details.

Besides that, Pinterest does just the opposite of that silly quote. It gives me the opportunity to get as close to my dreams as I CAN afford,  instructions on how to MAKE just about anything, and use the inspiration I find here to be CREATIVE in my own ways.

I keep a board called, For the Home, where I chronicle things I want to do in my home or things that would be awesome in anyone’s home. Thanks to this board, my home has really begun to transform in to something I am proud of. Here are a few pins I’m using as inspiration this month.


Baskets as cookbook storage - A Bowl Full of Lemons

I had 3 of these country living wire baskets, I got for $3 on sale and had no idea what I was going to do with them. Thanks to this pin, one now houses coloring books, homeschool papers and magazines on our dining table so they’re never too far from reach and another in the living room holds library books and read along books we’re working on with the kids. Cute and functional, love it!


Next up, is this droolworthy storage piece featured on Norway’s Bolig Pluss.
Stunning, right?

It just so happens I have two very similar dressers in my dining room almost the exact same color (a little distressing should do the trick) and I have been wanting to add pulls just like these for ages, but have been too scared to invest in that many pulls without knowing how it would look.

Score, it looks better than I could have ever imagined! Can’t wait to knock this project out. (Thank you Lisa!) Oh yeah, I even have the vintage suitcases and an old rickety wooden crate, meant to be I guess.
photo wall display
And my personal favorite, the family photo wall.

We had the MOST gorgeous family photos taken in May (promise to show them to you soon) and I have been scratching my head trying to figure out how to feature them in my home. This look is perfect for us, we even have the ledge already, I can’t wait to see it all come together like this.

All I need now is 32 drawer pulls, some sandpaper and a Kohl’s coupon so I can order a few more frames! I’ll post pictures as I finish each project.

I say it all the time, but Thank You Pinterest, for helping me visualize and put my ideas to action. So what do you think, are you using Pinterest to it’s full potential? Tell me how it’s improved your life and leave a link to your pins, I’d love to see what you’re doing over there.

Why I travel with a NOOK by Samsung (& how you can WIN one!)

Don’t miss the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK giveaway at the bottom of this post!

Thanks Samsung for sponsoring this great giveaway. Be sure to enter below!

Take my NOOK everywhere! Great for traveling, unwinding, waiting and keeping the kids entertained

I’ve been on the road more than I have been home the last two months, and one thing I am finally getting thing hang of is learning how to pack everything I need for my trips in only carry-ons. Gone are the days when I needed great big suitcases to get me where I was going.

I’m even learning how to travel without a laptop or a big camera, but for today I want to share this travel essential with you! I received a NOOK by Samsung to try out and share with you here. It couldn’t have come at a better time. It came in the mail the night before I had to fly home to deal with a family emergency.

I needed to pack light and I don’t really have any idea how long I will be gone. I had never used a NOOK before, but I knew I could load it up with things to help keep me occupied and ways to take a mental break when nights got long at the hospital.

It has done all that and then some!

In the night before my flight, I rented and downloaded two light-hearted comedies to watch on my flights.

Since i downloaded them before I left, I can watch them anytime at my leisure for 30 days, but once I start the film I only have 24 hours to finish. For $4, I was able to watch new releases whenever and however I wanted to on the plane. Super Awesome!

Next, I downloaded several books I have been wanting to read because I knew I would be spending a lot of time in waiting rooms and just generally sitting around waiting on people during my trip. I finished one book my first two days here and will finish my second book tonight.

Instead of bringing tons of hardcopy books with me, I have my own digital library at my disposal.

View of the NOOK by Samsung library

And when my eyes tire from reading too long, I also have a few digital magazines on there to get my creative juices flowing again (Digital magazines are my favorite!!) and even a few fun games I can play when I just need something to take my mind off of everything. Did I mention the battery life on this thing runs circles around all my other devices? Seriously, I didn’t even charge it for the first 3 days and I was using it almost constantly!

Apps and games look great on the NOOK by Samsung

The tablet does so much more though, I have sent some important work files to myself via Dropbox, reserved a rental a car while I sipped a hot chai from Starbucks, and even live-streamed a conference I was scheduled to speak at this weekend but couldn’t since I had to drop everything and go. It was almost as good as being there.

Enter to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

This little guy has been a true lifesaver for me this week and I am thrilled to have an extra one to give to a very lucky reader. If you would like to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK for you or someone you love this holiday season (what a great Christmas gift!)

Now, cut corresponding strips of blue and pink duck tape and attach them to the black sweatshirt as closely to the pattern on the lego character as you can.

The result looks spectacular, but only took as long as it takes you to cut the duct/duck tape!

10 Colorful Craft Ideas To Get You Making Now!

10 colorful craft ideas sure to inspire - tutorials to make your own bags and totes, home decor, kids toys and artwork. Something for everyone
One of my favorite parts about working online is sneaking a peek at all the fun projects my friends are making. I noticed a distinct trend of fun and colorful craft projects this week … and those colors!, you know they had me smitten with all that color. As I bookmarked, pinned, and flipped these ideas my daughter would catch a glimpse every so often and stop to ask more about what they were up to.

Colorful Craft Ideas

These were her favorite projects this week and they have each inspired us in their own way to start making and creating things on our own. Follow the links below to bookmark these tutorials or be inspired to make something completely new — either way, come back here and tell us all about it!

Origami Bag / So Very Shannon

I was doing some product design work this week and my daughter spied Shannon’s origami bag tutorial in my inspiration files. More proof I need to pull this out of my inspiration files and make it a reality!

Embroidered Baskets / Design Improvised

We’re always on the hunt for thrifty ways to decorate her room. These embroidered baskets Haeley made would certainly do the trick. I can’t wait to hit the thrift stores soon and start collecting a few.

Foil Art / Let’s Lasso The Moon

The first time I met Zina she gave me a GIANT pack of colored sharpies. I was in heaven, I love that whenever she sees rainbows she thinks of me! We’ll be using my Sharpies next week to make a few of these beautiful foil pieces created by her daughters.

You May Say I’m A Dreamer Canvas / Crafting Chicks

Nikkala and I are the same Cricut Design Star team this year. Our theme for July was “Song lyrics” and her mixed media canvas with leather tells me we are going to get along just fine!

Watercolor Artwork / Kids Stuff World

My Song Lyric submission, She Puts The Color Inside of My World, turns children’s artwork into a work of art you’ll be proud to display in your home.

Paper Flower Necklace / Hideous Dreadful Stinky

One glance at Marigold at Alt Design Summit 2 1/2 years ago and I knew we needed to become friends. Fast forward a bit, and you’ll spot her on the dance floor of a garden party looking lovely in an altered shift dress wearing incredible handmade jewelry she made herself!

Wooden Bead Dolls / Small For Big

Mari is one of those über talented friends who can do/make/design just about ANYTHING! Like these adorable dolls made from wooden beads that remind me an awful lot of her sweet daughter.

Mini Bead Bookmarks / Babble Dabble Do

Trust me when I say, you are about to fall madly in love with Ana as much as I have. This crazy cool mom, architect, furniture designer can make the most incredible and magical things out of everyday objects. I know my kids will flip for these mini hama bead / perler bead bookmarks.

Triangle Tote Bag / Sew Delicious

Roslyn won me over with this fab color palette and triangle tote bag. This looks like a bag I want to hide a good book in and go get lost for a few hours.

Paracord Vase / Meri Cherry

And last but not least is Meri. This paracord vase is the perfect summer craft for an afternoon with the girls. We have a lot of neighborhood kids running in out of my house, and I know every one of them would enjoy this take home activity. Pom pom flowers give it that extra special touch.

Mother / Daughter Craft Session Inspiration

These projects are far more than just pretty, they are also excellent ways to spend time with and connect with your kids. Some of these projects would be best suited for older kids, some are great for children of all ages and many are well-suited and fun for boys too.

Simple DIY Watercolor Wall Art

Simple Watercolor Wall Art print, She puts the Color inside of my World

I know a girl.

She puts the color inside my whole world.

maybe you’ve seen her taking a more hands-on, behind the scenes role around here?

She’s always inspiring and has more creative talent than I know what to do with, she’s my daily muse … and she’s growing up, right before my eyes. This summer we’ve been carving out space in our home to give us each the creative outlets we deserve.

Love this DIY Watercolor art in this  home office!

This is a sneak peek at my new office that is slowly, but surely coming together. With lots of help from my resident stylist/designer of course.

I know a girl, she puts the color inside of my world.

This post is my first in the Cricut Design Star challenge, I know I am as flabbergasted as you are as to how I got here but hey, when life hands you an amazing cutting machine, loads of craft supplies and a few lemons … you know what they say — make stuff!

I wanna be the next #Cricut Design Star! #IMadeIt

That is what they say, right?

This month my team’s theme was:

Song Lyrics

I knew as soon as the theme was decided exactly what I wanted to do! Something I could look at when I’m feeling uninspired or less than that will make me smile and think of her. Thank you John Mayer.

Simple Watercolor Wall Art Project made in half an hour using a Cricut cutting machine

The project couldn’t be more simple, you can create your own one of a kind piece in as few as 15 minutes.

To make your own watercolor wall art, you’ll need:

Summer Meal Ideas – Part 3

Over the course of the summer I have slipped into a place I’m not so happy about.

Snacking on one too many tortilla chips, indulging in one too many trips to my pantry. I’m reinvigorating myself with a week’s worth of meals packed with lean protein, fresh vegetables, and tasty fruits. I’m getting back to the me that makes me happy without sacrificing an ounce of flavor, here’s how:

A week of meals packed with lean protein, fresh vegetables and tasty fruit. Enchiladas, Pepper Steak, Strawberry Salad, Veggie Mac and Cheese and more

SUMMER MEAL IDEAS

Monday

Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas

I’m already looking forward to tonight. I love a good enchilada, but this healthy take has plenty of flavor from its tomatillo sauce and uses an avocado yogurt sauce to make it feel really indulgent without being too heavy.

Note: I know some of you know I don’t do to well with dairy anymore. I’ll have to take a lactose pill before I eat this tonight, if you are lactose intolerant or have issues digesting dairy I suggest you do to.

Tuesday

Strawberry Salad

Our week is still kind of heavy even though it is mostly healthy, I like to offset heavy dinners with a few light soups and salads. I never get any complaints when I put a strawberry salad and fresh croissants on the table.

Wednesday

Roasted Veggie Mac & Cheese

My general tendency when I am going clean (eating that is) is to remove all pasta from my meals, but let’s be honest. I LOVE pasta, my family LOVES pasta and my mac and cheese is a true family favorite. I can still give my family the food they love if I amp it up a bit with roasted veggies and turn it into a meal in itself. I’ll add a few bites of turkey sausage to ours to make this a one skillet meal. Inspired by this recipe.

Thursday

Easy Pepper Steak

I’m indulging a bit this week by adding steak to our typical stir fry fair. I know my husband will appreciate this Pepper Steak recipe and since stir fry comes together so quickly I’ll be a happy cook too.

Friday

Grilled Pork Chops, Roasted Potatoes and Watermelon Salad

It’s been awhile since we’ve enjoyed a thick cut pork chop. My love affair with watermelon continues! I stumbled across this watermelon and blackberry salad last night and honestly, I could probably just eat that for dinner. Oh my gosh, how gorgeous does that look!

Saturday

Breakfast Tacos with Fruit Salad

Breakfast Tacos are our go-to simple summer meal around here. Everyone loves them and they are filling enough to carry us till morning. My favorite part about serving eggs for dinner? There’s an excuse to celebrate with a fruit-filled dessert, this fruit salad is coated in a honey lime dressing — yum!!

Sunday

Ground Turkey Burritos

We’ve got a huge weekend ahead of us, we’ll end the week with something simple and satisfying.

Note: I mentioned this was a week of clean eating and lots of fruits and veggies. The recipes linked here are my sources of inspiration for my meals and may not actually be clean recipes. I will make any modifications I need myself, if you have a question about how I will do that for a particular recipe, just let me know!

Simple Summer Meals (Cont’d)

We have passed that critical point in summer where I expend all of my energy throughout the day and have zero saved up to spend in the kitchen cooking dinner in the evenings.

There are so many more fun things I could be doing with my family, to keep my time in front of the stove to a minimum I resort to simple summer meals: family favorites that come together quickly and often times, meals that require little to no cooking.

Simple SUmmer Meal Ideas to get dinner on the table when it's too ht to think about what to cook

Here’s what we’ll be eating at my house this week:

SIMPLE SUMMER MEALS

Monday

Zucchini and French Bread Pizzas

Zucchini is everywhere. It’s popping up in my mother in law’s garden and it is super cheap right now at the super market. This is fabulous since i love cooking and baking with zucchini. We’ve been making breads and muffins and are eager to try a brownie too. Tonight I’ll feed my family French Bread Pizzas while I feast on this gluten-free version, Zucchini Pizza Boats. Both versions are simple to make and broil in just a few minutes getting dinner on the table in a flash!

Tuesday

Stiry Fry

We love a good stir fry around here. You can find us throwing in whatever we have on hand … the last one I made we used turkey sausage because we were out of everything else and even it turned out great. My friend Shawna, has a very simple, tried and true Beef Stir Fry that never steers me wrong.

Wednesday

Cornbread Panzanella

Mmm, I try to incorporate at least one dinner salad into our meal plan each week. I’ve had this Cornbread Panzanella on my mind for weeks. I finally have a chance to try it out.

Thursday

BBQ Chicken Taquitos

In addition to a weekly salad, I also reserve one night to be incredibly simple. Nine out of ten times that means I’ll be using a store-bought rotisserie chicken as the base of the recipe. That’s what happens when we make these BBQ Taquitos. I’ll pair these with a fruit salad and some carrots and celery for a simple summer meal I can make in minutes.

Friday

Family Pizza Night

Everyone loves a good pizza night and while we used to settle for just pepperoni and cheese, as we make our own pies my tastes have expanded. My new favorite pizza is jalapeño pineapple with bacon. I spied this version which adds BBQ chicken to the mix and I can’t wait to taste test it for myself.

That’s our meal plan this week. If you need more ideas be sure to check out our past meal plan posts.

Simple Summer Meal Ideas

Simple Summer Meal Ideas for Busy Families

It’s our last week of school here in Texas and it’s jam-packed with events and activities and all sorts of things that will keep us busy all day and leave me without much time or energy to spend in the kitchen. On weeks like these, I revert to simple summer meals. Think tacos or tostadas, salads, one pot or skillet meals ideas, or things my husband can fix up quickly on the grill.

For our last official week before summer, here’s what we’ll be eating:

SIMPLE SUMMER MEAL IDEAS

Monday

Shrimp and Black Bean Tostadas

We don’t use a recipe for these, but I found this one by What’s Gaby Cooking for you on Pinterest.

Tuesday

Chicken Quesadillas

There’s a gazillion ways to make a quesadilla, but these spicy, Key West quesadillas are a version I’ve never tried before.

Wednesday

Fried Rice

The blogger who made this recipe claims it is better than takeout fried rice, crossing my fingers that’s true because I haven’t been able to eat Chinese since becoming gluten-free. We’ll use tamari soy sauce so I can eat it.

Thursday

Chopped Salad

I love a good chopped salad, this one is a family favorite.

Friday

Pizza

And to celebrate the end of the school year, this cook will be shutting down her kitchen and taking her children out for pizza to celebrate!

Saturday

Burritos

Sorry folks, no recipe here. We just add all the things we each like, roll them up and enjoy.

Sunday

Baked Beans and Brats

I found a recipe for smoky, baked beans in a magazine and thought we’d give it a try this weekend. I need at least one new recipe a week to keep things interesting for me.

Gluten-Free Meal Ideas

A week's worth of gluten free meals for the whole family

GLUTEN-FREE MEAL IDEAS

Monday

Greek Salad w/ Grilled Chicken

We’re taking the kids out to lunch today which means we won’t feel like eating much for dinner. I’ll make a big, tangy greek salad and use the leftovers to make lunch with all week. If you’ve never made your own greek salad, here is a great recipe to get you started.

Tuesday

Shrimp Lo Mein

Tuesday dinners need to come together FAST! I love whipping up shrimp lo mien using rice noodles I don’t even have to cook. Simply rinse them in water and they soften on their own while you heat up the veggies and shrimp. Dinner doesn’t get much easier than this. To keep things extra simple, I  use a gluten-free stir fry sauce we like and call it done. Then douse mine in sriracha and squeeze some honey over the shrimp because I like it sweet & spicy.

Note: The orange flavor San-J sauce is mild enough for kids. The Szechaun if I recall was a bit spicy, I watered it down and added some extra tamari till I got the flavor I was going for. If you water it down to much, don’t worry. Just add a touch of cornstarch or arrowroot powder to thicken it up.

Wednesday

Crock pot Denver Omelettes

Omelettes in a crock pot? I know what you are thinking, I am as intrigued as you are … which is why I simply must try it out. I haven’t used shredded hash browns in years so I will have to see if they have any gluten-free options out there. If I can’t find any, I will simply omit them from this recipe.

Note: Check your brand of hash browns to be sure they are gluten-free, you could also shred your own potatoes. Yum, that would be great to do if you crisped them in the skillet first.

Thursday

Spicy Meatballs over Rice

Hot & Spicy Meatballs

Note: This recipe is NOT gluten-free!! To make it gluten-free I will swap the bread crumbs for crushed chex cereal, soy sauce for tamari sauce and may have to make my own sweet chile sauce or find a similar substitute. 

Friday

Mexican Corn Casserole

Occasionally I will find a recipe on Pinterest that just won’t get out of my head … that is this pin. I know we’ve been dairy free around here for a couple weeks, but that is mainly for me not the family so they’ll get a nice cheesy treat tonight and I will take a lactose pill, no biggie.

Note: This recipe calls for corn tortillas, refried beans, and enchilada sauce. Please be sure to check your ingredients to make sure they are, in fact, gluten-free.

Saturday

BBQ Chicken, Brown Rice Macaroni & Cheese

I’m picturing my kids with sticky fingers, messy faces, watermelon juice dribbling off their chins and me having to hose them off in the backyard before they come inside. The perfect recipe for a Saturday evening. I picked up one of those large mason jar drink dispensers last week and I’m hoping to fill it with either lemonade for everyone …. or fresh margaritas for me and the mister. Either way, good times.

I owe you guys a recipe for the greatest gluten-free macaroni and cheese of all time. Tell my sister-in-law to come over immediately and help me write it down since I hardly ever measure a thing in the kitchen. It’s the one place I feel comfortable enough to not have to follow directions all the time.

Note: I like to make my own rubs and sauces, but if I don’t have time Mr. Stubbs is my favorite brand of sauce. All natural and gluten-free and never any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.

Sunday

Turkey Kielbasa Hash

This is my husband’s favorite meal oddly enough since he doesn’t eat onions or peppers, but it reminds him of home so I try to squeeze it in at least once a month. I don’t need a recipe for this anymore, but I found a gorgeous one online this week so here it is for you.

Note: Butterball makes a tasty gluten- and nitrate-free turkey kielbasa now. Look for it near the hot dogs at your local grocer.

That’s it folks, if you have any questions about the recipes or meals we’re making, please ask in the comments below or send me an email. Happy to help any way I can. If a linked recipe has gluten. dairy, or sugar in it know I will be making substitutions. I try to list them in the comments for each day. If you want to know more, just ask me.
