My 6 year old has been asking me almost everyday this past week to draw with him, which I love but honestly I love seeing his drawings even more. He has been on a squid kick lately and has drawn all sort of sea scenes with squid as the protagonist. He has even portrayed our family as squid :). I'll have to take a pic and share them on instagram.

I figured it was high time I finally shared this playdough recipe. We love our favorite oil based playdough recipe, which is great but it's not very great for molding and making things out of. So about a year ago (no really, a year ago).

I have two free printables for you today. A Geometric Pineapple coloring page and a Watercolor version of the Geometric Pineapple - go to end of the post to download.
This Ikea MALM dresser hack was a fun update using contact paper and can be taken off at any time. It's perfect for a kids room, a space room or any room really. This post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for supporting Sisters, What!
I've been going through old pictures and I came across the Ikea MALM dresser hack that I changed up to a galaxy dresser. For my boys room we had a space theme planned, so I thought I'd try out some galaxy painting. BUT, I didn't want to do it right on the actual dresser. I didn't have that much confidence in my painting skills...so I bought some black contact paper.
I saw on A Girl and Her Glue Gun how she does Throwback Thursdays on her blog by showcasing old posts and I thought it was such a good idea. So I thought I'd give that a try. It might not be every week, but a Thursday here and there.
As I get in the middle of my pregnancy, I'm starting to remember all having a new little baby entails. One of those things is that I have to go back to a bigger bag that carries more than just my wallet and essentials. Kinda sad thinking about it, but totally worth it. Especially since my go to diaper bag is my DIY striped leather bag. It is my favorite bag I've ever made and it held everything I needed for my baby. But, it can definitely be used for more than a diaper bag. I love how it doesn't look like a diaper bag.
If doing the stripes bag cut
4 black strips (I used Bella Solid Fabric)- 2.75 inches x 15.5 inches
4 white strips - 2.75 inches x 15.5 inches (I used this fabric here)
(if doing a solid piece of fabric cut: 2 pieces fabric - 10 inches x 15.5 inches)
2 pieces of Leather/vinyl (or other heavy fabric like Cotton Duck Canvas Cloth ) - 8 inches x 15.5 inches (I used this color of Leather)
2 pieces of batting (I used Anne Soft and Sable ) 17 inches x 15.5 inches
2 pieces of duck cloth - 17 inches x 15.5 inches
1 favorite fabric (for pocket #1) [I used Moda Fabric] - 12 inches x 15.5 inches
1 heavy weight interfacing (for pocket #1) - 11.75 inches x 15.5 inches
1 favorite fabric (for pocket #2) - 14 inches x 15.5 inches
1 heavy weight interfacing (for pocket #2) - 13.75 inches x 15.5 inches
1 - Leather/vinyl for strap - mine was 34 inches x 5.25 inches (however, you might want your longer, so find another bag you like and decide you long you want it)
2 - leather pieces for strap - 3 inches x 2.75 inches
2 - leather pieces for D ring on bag - 3 and 1/2 inches x 1 and 1/4 inches
Fabric for pockets (I personally love Cotton and Steel)

For some reason I am either quick to share a project on here or it takes me a year to finally blog about it :). This gumball machine is the later. It's not a typical project that I would even think to do, because candy or gum on a shelf in the eyesight of small ones always seems like a bad idea, but my sister-Sierra for her wedding was having a old fashioned candy table so I just had to make one for her. I mean, you have to have gumballs as part of a old fashioned candy collection and a gumball machine is right up there to me with nostalgia candy.
