"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!!!

Duct Tape Purses/Wallets
This one if for older kids! We ran into someone with a duct tape purse and thought they were cute! I did the purses and my 9 year old did the wallets. He wants to try a purse but he gets the tape all wrinkly after a certain size :) I will leave the tutorial for the experts at: all things thrifty. I basically followed their instructions and decided that the fabric inside is not totally necessary. Just looks nicer. We used all duct tape and just double sided it! It was a fun project with a cute outcome! We gave some out for birthday gifts and Carter made wallets for his cousin. Here are some of the pictures!
