"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

Chalkboard Tree house Sign!

I have been seeing all the things to do with chalkboard paint. I am excited to try some out! First, it of course is about the kids so Carter made a sign to put up on the tree house at Nana's. Great Project for a 9 year old!
We found a scrap piece of wood, he painted the edges, sprayed Chalkboard paint in the middle and back, added rope and fasteners and up it went! He loved it. Now him and his cousins can rename the fort every time they are there! For now...since no one else is here it is Carter's Castle!! :) Main tip is 2 coats! Other than that, fun and easy and good result!
