Watercolor Fruity Printable

How do you survive the summer heat? I personally can't get enough fruit. My absolute favorite fruit treat is frozen grapes. My mom would freeze green ones all summer long and we'd call them frog eye balls and laugh our socks off. My hubby thinks I'm a little weird when I freeze grapes and call them that. I totally agree. But seriously, you need to try frozen grapes, they are delicious!

Mint and Gold Pineapple Bowl Revived || Pinterest Challenge June


Ah you know, it's just the end of June and the temperature is supposed to be 104 degrees tomorrow! I know, I'm a total wuss, but folks I live in the Pacific North West, we rarely get 100 degree weather days; we usually start melting when it hits 80. Seriously, the perfect summer weather is what I love most about PNW. Well, we will somehow survive. Thank goodness for a.c.

And to cool things off, how about some more pineapple loving for you today. I just can't seem to stay away from it. I figured my gold pineapple mold art was the right amount of pineapple for our house until I came across this vintage Hawaiian pineapple bowl at the thrift store and I just couldn't pass it up.

not too long ago I came across this beautiful revived pineapple bowl over at Maize Hutton and didn't realize that I found a similar bowl until I came across her blog post again. The stars were definitely aligned for this project.

I decided on an overall gold color (mostly because I still had some left over from my pineapple mold art and pineapple canvas art). Although I feel that I can only handle so much gold in my decor, gold just feels right for pineapple.

Gold Spray Paint
Acrylic craft paint (color of choice)

||1|| Spray your bowls in gold first. Let dry. 
||2|| I just wanted the top to be painted, so I taped to make sure I got good lines (I don't always have a steady hand). Then I painted my mint on top.

DIY Banner - Go Forth to Serve

About 2 weeks ago I when posted on here about my plywood world map, I also shared this Go Forth to Serve banner that I made to go on the wall next to the map. And now I'm finally getting around to share how I made it and a free printable version of it. 
DIY Banner - Go Forth To Serve
When I made the world map I wanted to put something next and decided a banner might be fun. After much contemplation, I decided on Go Forth To Serve (BYU's school motto). We are major home bodies, so what I put up on the walls in our home is really important to me. I want it to make us happy and to be uplifting. Something I've been really wanting to be better at is getting out and helping and serving others. But you know, with 3 little ones, it's so easy to just make excuses and stay home and not think of anyone but our family. But I really want to do better. I love this quote below (from this great talk here)
DIY Banner
Materials:
Canvas or other heavy fabric
dowel
freezer paper
stencil (if you're doing Go Forth to Serve download stencil here and here if you have silhouette)

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of your desired banner size. You can glue together or the two pieces together around the edges.

Step 2: Print your stencil out on freezer paper (you want to print on the not shiny part). Cut with exacto knife or cutting machine. Iron onto banner. 
Step 3: with fabric paint (I like to use an craft acrylic paint and a fabric medium) paint the stencil. Once dry, remove the freezer paper. 
Step 3: Cut two pieces of fabric rectangles and glue or sew onto back of banner (I used E6000 glue). Then insert dowel and hang with string.

But just thinking about those strawberries has got me craving some delicious treats to make with them. And seriously, there are a plethora of amazing recipes out there. Here are just a few I hope to try this summer. Anyone else a strawberry fanatic?
