Gold Creek summer vibes

Happy friday!
I have shared this hike with you all before but this was the first time I have been there in the summer and the views 
were spectacular!
Such beauty and gorgeous colors!

My friend Cheryl and I and her caute cavi-poo Brooke
hiked out way around Gold Creek Pond 
(isn't Brooke a cutie!)

The lake was so clear and aqua blue in color.

The trail provides views of Gold Creek valley and Chikamin Peak 
in the Alpine Wilderness.  
Give it a try this summer if your looking for a local easy going hike.

This little puppers head tilt is just too cute!

Grad Party

What a fun weekend celebrating my girl's graduation!
So many friends and family showed up and I cannot thank you all for coming and sharing in Shae's accomplishment!
I wish I was able to get more photos of everyone but here are a few.....

Here are a few of the decor pics.

Remember the hula hoop photo rings I shared last month?
Here they are with all her pictures on them.

My girlfriend Kirstin owns this canoe and I was lucky enough to get to borrow it from her for the party.
We set it on top of some landscape rocks that are on our patio area and then put some 25lb arm weights inside to keep it secure.

I used a 10ft long piece of wood to run the entire length of the canoe in order to be able to set things on top for serving.  
I used white tablecloths to cover the wood.  I also used buckets in areas in the canoe where I could put the bowls of food or tortillas.

At each end of the canoe and in the center I put flowers that were in glass vases that I sent right down inside of the canoe.  It worked well and also filled up with ends.
It really turned out better than I ever expected!

We were really hoping for sunshine, it came around 5pm 
just shortly after everyone left, go figure.....
Still, it turned out to be a great celebration

Sweet friends.......

Hello Dear Friend

Hello dear friends and happy friday!
We are gearing up over here for a grad party for one happy
graduated senior!
I'll post pics this weekend

Of course as I always say I have to alter my Paper pumpkin cards.
This designed just a bit different adding the velvet teal ribbon down the side of the card.  The feather is such a soft added touch.

Just curious,  how many of you would still like to see card ideas on my blog?  Would you like to see more home decor diy's or home projects?   Let me know..........

Graduation Candy Lei's


                                          Just in time for graduations!
  Everyone wants one of these candy lei's wrapped around their necks at graduation and our video is going to show you how easy it
is to put these together.

You can use any type candy you like or even nuts
or gumballs!  Get creative!

I used curling ribbon but you can use any ribbon you like.
I also added a tag at the bottom of the necklace.

You can use hard candies, I used M & M's for one
of the lei's and airheads for another.
Something to consider if you live in the hot states, you may not want to use chocolate candies as they melt.

Graduation Hula Hoop

A few weeks ago I shared with you all and idea for you to showcase photos for upcoming events this summer.
Weddings, showers, graduations, anniversaries, etc....

Well,   look at this one above!!!!
Mara stepped it up!  check out the amazing details she added to 
her hoop!  Every little detail.  She tied her ribbons to the hoop which is genius! Also adding scrabble wood tiles to spell out grads.
And look at those cute sparkly glasses! 

This is just makes me smile!
When I post, my goal is to show you projects that you can truly make, and I always stress how easy they are. 
Thank you Mara for sharing your grad hoop, it turned out just great!

Rubbermaid Cabinet

Happy weekend everyone!
We have been working on a few projects over here today.
One was hanging one of those 8ft. steel ceiling racks in our garage to make more organizational space for boxes and things since we moved in. 
The other was this project I took on.
I was looking for a cabinet or chest to put outside and found 
this gem at Home Depot by Rubbermaid.

Now,  I personally am one that does not enjoy taking the time
to put something like this together, but I tell you, it was super easy and didn't test my patience at all. 
I purchased mine for $149.00

The size of this cabinet is generous it runs 
46" x 24" x 37.50 with a shelve inside that holds
up to 50lbs in weight. 

Seriously, look at this piece! It really looks like it is a piece of furuniture, but it's plastic!
Even the handles are real handles and the doors have a snap feature so that when you close it you can put a lock on it or not.

This was the space I was visualizing for it to go and it fits beautifully.

Loving the look and space that it fills. 
It will be handy when I am hosting outside.
Right now I filled it up with beach towels and our
life jackets all on one shelf with plenty of room for other things that could be stored there. 
Enjoy your weekend friends!
