Goodbye Summer Vacation — Hello Back to School Season!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t’ know about you but I just can’t believe summer is just about over and school is right around the corner. Whether you are a teacher, a parent or a party stylist I think you will all agree: decorating for Back to School is always a fun way to start the new school year!

This year I wanted something fun and motivational for my mantel decor. I found the cute school bus a few months back and knew it would be perfect for my Back to School Mantel!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I made the sign by framing wrapping paper and I made my “Be Amazing” phrase using my Cricut machine.

Farmhouse decor is a very popular trend and has made it’s way into my home over the past few years.  A key element in farmhouse decor is the basic, chippy window frame because of its versatile uses. You’ll find these window frames in many homes and backyards, placed over a bed, on a mantel or even on the porch. It can also be decorated seasonally with a festive banner or a boxwood wreath. However, original rustic farmhouse window panes can be both expensive and in most areas rather difficult to find. I am sharing how easy and budget-friendly it can be to make one at home with just a few supplies. You can currently see the step by step instructions on the Life Storage blog.

I can’t wait to decorate my home with my new farmhouse style window frame, especially for the upcoming holidays. Have fun making your own!

Recreational vehicles are an attractive travel option and even provide a full-time home for some. Space is limited when traveling in an RV. That’s why it’s extra important to get organized before hitting the road. I am currently sharing six simple RV storage ideas on the Life Storage blog that have helped me stay organized while camping with the family this summer. I hope it helps you, too!

I would love to hear your helpful tips, too! Feel free to comment below.

Happy July friends!

Today I am excited to share with you my newest patriotic mantel.  It includes a few items I made, including the fireworks string art from last year, painted stars and this adorable banner.  I found the cute popsicle sponges at Michaels last month and new I would be using those all summer long.  Aren’t they adorable? I simply used a needle and stringed the banner together.

I also created this beautiful God Bless America sign. The free printable is available here: God Bless America Printable Sign and it can be printed up to 8×10.
