Dinosaur Bag Sewing Tutorial

I think I've mentioned how my boys both love dinosaurs (especially the oldest) so of course, they both have dinosaur sweatshirts, dinosaur tails and now dinosaur bags. Seriously, they love them. They are perfect for a Halloween treat bag and any other time of year. 

 And I love making dinosaur stuff for them. I even recently made a dinosaur sweater for smallest one (seriously, she looks SO cute, I can't wait to share it with you)

Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch

a DIY Harry Potter lumos and nox light switch, So COOL!!
It's that time of year when it's my birthday AND it's Harry Potter's. Yep, we almost share a birthday. One of these days I'm going to convince my husband to make me a Harry cake...I know I sound super nerdy, but I love Harry Potter. 

Last year I joined in with Rae from Rae Gun Rambling blog on her Harry Potter celebration where bunch of bloggers get together to share all sorts of Harry Potter goodness around his Birthday. You can see a round up of all the post HERE. You can see my  Alohomora Key Rack post from last year HERE

For today, I'm sharing how to make a Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch. I made one for my in laws (my mother in law is a HUGE fan) and made a test one for me. I wasn't planning on putting it in the kitchen, but my husband put it up one day and there it is still. 


DIY Harry Potter Lumos || Nox Light Switch


Supplies:

Stain (we love this dark walnut stain)
Spray Sealant or Polyuthurane 
Or vinyl or contact paper (if using a cutting machine, which isn't necessary but really nice)


1. First stain your wood cover and let it dry according to directions. (Cutting machine users, if using vinyl words instead of painting the words on, spray your sealant FIRST)

2. Prepare your stencil. If you are doing it by hand, print out your lumos font so that the measurements match up with light switch. Trace it onto stencil material and cut out with exacto knife. After the stain has dried, use the stencil to paint the lumos and nox on. Let dry. 

*If using a cutting machine, simply cut out lumos and nox with vinyl or contact paper. You can choose to just use the vinyl letters or you can use the vinyl to make a stencil and then paint the words.

3. After your paint is dry spray your light switch with sealant (if you painted your words on instead of placing vinyl words on). 

And there you go! a really classy Harry Potter Light Switch. It's not too late to enter the big Harry Potter giveaway below:

|Colorful| Pineapple Themed Bridal Shower

So happy to say that sister Sierra is finally married and everything went wonderfully! The reception and decor was beautiful and I can't wait to share it on here. Next time Sierra tells me she has no creativity in her bones, I'll just remind her she pulled off a beautiful reception. 

Ok, like I promised, here are the pictures from her second pineapple themed bridal shower (in case you missed it, GO HERE for the first pineapple themed bridal shower) My sister in law loves bright colors and I LOVE what she did to her pineapples. Ok, I'll let the pictures do the talking. The flowers arrangement was done by her mother Ann Bowen. So if you live in the Salt Lake Valley, look her up, she is fantastic!

Pineapple Themed Bridal Shower + Amazon Giveaway

pineapple themed bridal shower
About a month or so later, I'm finally getting around to sharing the pineapple themed bridal shower that I threw with my mom and sister for our youngest sister, Sierra (from Well Rounded Blog - you should totally check her out).

So in case you missed it we all love pineapple (seriously, check out our Pineapple Board), but Sierra especially has a thing for them, so a pineapple themed shower seemed perfect. Apparently my sister in law in Utah had the same idea, because she to had a pineapple themed shower for Sierra this past weekend in Utah. See this post HERE for pics from that shower.

We held the shower at our Mom's house which was perfect because she she makes everything so much better. And she makes the most delicious salads and everything else. I'm going to stop talking and just let you enjoy the pictures.

Stay Cool Summer Printable

Oh boy, summer is finally here for us. Living in the PNW is sometimes unpredictable when it comes to heat and this year we've had some ups and downs of 90 degree days and then a few days of rain and 60 degrees. I don't mind, I love the rain so it's perfectly fine to me. But honestly, can you believe it's already July!! We have so much stuff planned that I feel this summer is going to zip by.
