This ombre-painted-squares wall turned out SO cool! I can’t believe it was done to work around existing squares, it seems like it was totally planned this way, doesn’t it?

Think how many ways fun, scrabble-style chalkboard tile place cards could be used: on kids desks as name plates, as food labels at potlucks, as holiday decorations (how about ‘Boo!’ or ‘Welcome’?), and of course as place cards!

Love these simple ‘balloon’ cupcake toppers made from suckers – what a fabulous idea!

Yes, yes, yes – heart healthy power banana split bars with quinoa, oats, dried cherries and other good stuff.

I’m feeling the need for a bit of school food inspiration (already!) so these after school snack ideas are perfect timing!

And since the season of busy weeknights is here again, Spinach Pesto Chicken with pasta sounds like a yummy and quick dinner for our menu.


I hope you enjoyed this collection of gathered links to DIY crafts, food projects, and thrifty ways to spruce up your home. Nothing brings me more joy then to highlight other fabulous bloggers. Follow me on Pinterest for daily inspiration!
