How to be an Organized Blogger Part 3

We’re continuing on with my Organized Blogger series today, who’s with me?

Are we all getting organized yet?  Maybe it’s just on the ‘to Do list.  That’s okay.  Every good organization system requires some time to set up but once it’s set up it’s easy to keep in place.

Today I have two printables to share with you.

1) Brand Contacts Sheet (with a space to practice your pitch)

2) So Much To Do list printable

So let’s get started…

Little Girl’s Painted Plant Pot + Silhouette Promotion

Stay tuned tomorrow for another part in my Organized Blogger series!

My daughter just started preschool.  Where does the time go?  She’s going to the same preschool as her brother and when I said good-bye to her today I actually said her brother’s name!

My association to that place has always been with her brother.  I was pregnant with her when he was going there.  This time it’s much easier to walk up all those stairs without a pregnant belly.

Each child needs to bring in their own plant to take care of.  This plant looks like it already needs help.

The pot needs to have their name written on it but of course I took it one step further.

I asked Audrey what color she wanted the pot to be.  Pink, of course.  She wants everything to be pink.  And I do mean everything.

She heard a train the other day and she was hoping it was going to be pink.  Sure, a pink train.

I used my Silhouette Cameo® to make the stencils needed for this project.

Let me show you how I did it.

Weathered Tray

I mentioned on Friday that I was off to my 20 year high school reunion.  I survived!

It was a late night but tons of fun to catch up with old friends and classmates many of them I haven’t seen since high school.

You can check out some fun pics on Instagram.

I’m totally feeling ‘weathered’ from the weekend so what a great tutorial to share with you today, how to make a new tray look old by weathering it with a paint technique.

Update Old Artwork (Trash to Treasure)

We’re back again this month with our Trash to Treasure series!

Today I’m showing you how to take an old piece of artwork and update it.

Speaking of old, I’m going to my 20 year high school reunion this weekend.  I didn’t go to my 10 year so I thought I should go for the 20th because there is no way in hell I’m going for the 30th or 40th.

And what do you wear to these things?  It’s not formal which is awesome but it makes the choices endless.

Who will be there?  Any old boyfriends? (god I hope not) What do we talk about? How much are drinks?

Oh that last one I just found out.  Super important.

Being old and going to your 20 year high school reunion is hard.

This updated artwork project is so stinking easy.

Apple Blueberry Crumble

Today we’re branching away from DIY projects to give you a wonderful, rustic fall recipe.

When was the last time I shared a recipe?  Christmas!  We’re due.

I’ve had this Apple Crumble recipe for years (maybe from high school cooking class?).  I’ve tweaked it a bit and added blueberries.

It’s super easy and a great go-to if you’re having company over.  You can make it in no time.

So let me share my Apple Blueberry Crumble with you.
