DIY Color Block Clothes Pins - Pinterest Challenge August

Feels so good to be back with another Pinterest Challenge. We skipped July for a little summer break, but now that summers practically over, I decided I needed to do a project with some summer loving colors.

Painting clothes pins have been on my list for a long time, so DIY color block clothes pins seemed the perfect color and crafting fix. We use clothes pins all the time. Like for everything. So we keep a good stack in the kitchen drawer. But, they needed a make over; especially since I last painted them.

And seriously, I get over how fun these are. I even added magnets to a few of them, so now a lucky few reside on my fridge. All the other clothes pins in the drawer are really jealous, like seriously.

Materials:
Spray Paint
Painters Tape - I highly recommend frog tape over the blue stuff, nothing gets under that. 
Craft Paint or sample paint

Step 1: Spray paint your clothes pins. I spray painted half of my clothes pins and left the natural ones plain. 
Step 2: Tape off sections of clothes pins
Step 3: Paint clothes pins. I had to do multiple coats of some of the colors. Then let dry. If you want to attach a magnet to the back, use E6000 glue for a good hold.

DIY Pleated Dress - a Sewing Tutorial

diy pleated dress a sewing tutorial
One of my favorite things to wear are dresses. However, since starting our little family, I don't get to wear them for as long as I like because between being pregnant and nursing, I haven't had much time to wear them. After being pregnant I itch to wear my dresses again. After having my first little babe, I made my first dress ever without a pattern. I was crazy to do it without a pattern; it was a Shabby Apple knock off and I couldn't afford the real thing. After a many prayers and a miracle I pulled it off.

Velcro Bow Ties for Little Men

My older sister just got married about two months ago and even though I totally wasn't planning on making anything for my fam to match with, I ended up finding some really fun purple apparel fabric at Joanns. I wanted to make me a dress out of it, but it was a wooping $30!! Even with a 50% off coupon, that was too much for a dress. But a 1/4 of a yard is totally affordable (with a coupon) and would be perfect for velcro bow ties for my two little men.

Toddler Activities Part 2: Perfect for Traveling or Quiet Time

This post may contain affiliate links (all opinions are 100% mine, other wise I wouldn't share them).
As promised, here is part 2 of my Toddler Activities post. As I mentioned in the last post, we were going on 12 hour drive to California and needed lots of good hands on activities for a 2 year old that didn't take up much space. 

Little Animals and an Empty Wipe Container
At first I thought I was packing to many bulky items, but then I figured out a way that some items could cross over with the different activities. Like these fun little animals here. Have you ever heard of Safari Ltd TOOBS ? We love everything they have. You can get them at Joanns for a great price with a 50% or 60% coupon.

Can you believe it's already August?? Seriously, is Summer really almost over? I'm not going to lie, though, we had a cloudy day a couple weeks ago (usually we have more in the PNW in the summer time) and I suddenly got excited for the chilly weather of fall. Ya, I really love the rain and totally miss it.
