Festive Summer Mason Jar Vases

Posted by on June 5, 2014 in Contributing Posts | 22 comments

What day is it??  I’ve lost all track of time, dates, and pretty much my mind in general.  Okay, I’m being dramatic.  Life with three boys is going well.  Ben is a sleepy little guy (at least during the day), so he hasn’t added to the daily chaos of our household too much … yet.  His brothers, on the other hand … well, they’re as energetic as ever!  I’m so glad the weather has been nice  …

Anyway … I did make something to share with you today.  It’s been a couple weeks, huh?

It’s a SUPER easy project (I’m all about ease lately) that I’m sharing today over on Oh My! Creative.  I made these chalk painted festive mason jar vases to amp up my decor for Summer!

Can you believe this was my first time using Chalk Paint?!?  I swoon over so many other projects I see with chalk paint (online and in person), and have finally tested the waters for myself (though on a very small scale, I realize).

I’d love it if you’d stop over and check out the details (and say hello) over on Oh My! Creative.

In other news … we’ve slowly been adjusting to our small army of {THREE} little boys over here.  Follow me on Instagram for all the latest accomplishments, struggles, and other random happenings.

A quick sampling of our past week:

First Target trip with all three … check.  No one lost.  Only a couple tears.  Several bribes involved.

Superhero Scooter-ing … check.  Why not let the older boys ride with capes and rain boot that are three sizes too big?  Pick your battles wisely!

First Park Visit with all three … check.  We even managed to fit all three boys, two scooters, two helmets, and a bunch of other crap stuff on the double BOB.  I, on the other hand, got quite the workout!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Tomorrow, I have a fun guest post from Erin at The Blue Eyed Dove.  Be sure to stop back to check it out!
