Funtastic Friday #140


This is the last week before school starts.
Kind of the last week of summer, even though it is still hot August!
What fun have you had on your last week before school?
We've been putting on some Kid Camps.
You can check out some of that fun
 {here} and  {here}.
We've been switching bedrooms around
and the kids have been adding some new decorations
like these cute denim tin can planters.

Make some unique recycled jean planters by upcycling denim seams and tin cans

Love those little succluents planted inside.

We were recently visiting family in Utah.
Out there on July 24 it's Pioneer Day.
They celebrate the early settlers coming into the valley
and establishing that great state.
Carrie has a fun button craft that you can make
while telling stories of early pioneers.



Everyone has a pioneer of some sort in their family tree.
It's those ancestors who came before and paved the way for you to be here.
Find one of your ancestor stories and share it with your family this week. :)

    Welcome all!
    We're posting the link party a little late this week--
    just got back from girl's camp.
    It's always a fun and uplifting week with girls ages 12-17.
    What amazing young women we have among us!
    If you're heading out camping, 
    of course you've got to have s'mores!
    Take along our easily portable S'mores in a Bag.


    We had one sweet girl at camp from the Philippines,
    who had never had this tasty treat.
    Cool to watch her to roast her first marshmallow and
    you should have seen her eyes light up when she took her first s'more bite!

    Welcome back to another week of Funtastic Friday!

    I think I'm getting the redecorating bug.
    I just love what Leslie did with this giant peg board.


    I've got some ideas swirling around.
    As soon as school's out,
    we've got to clean out and rearrange things.
    But for right now,
    we have another graduation on the brain.


    Last year I used this Adventure Awaits theme
    for a graduation dinner.
    It's my favorite grad decor and theme to date!

    How to make a Word Board with vinyl stencil


    One of our college girls just graduated this last weekend.
    It's that season when we wish all our grads success after years of study,
    as they move on to their next adventures.
     and to go out and conquer the world!
    I wanted to make my daughter something she could hang up with words of inspiration.
    ....so I went on her Pinterest boards to find a quote she liked.
