How to Host a Closet Swap Party

I have a relationship with Aladdin and Momtrends that may include compensation and product for review. As always, all thoughts, opinions, and love for all things mason jar are my own.

Tips & Tricks on how to host a successful swap party!  #aladdinparty #ad

I kind of thought when I became a stay-at-home Mom I would have more time to spend with my girl friends- especially other “mommy friends”.  Turns out life is still crazy busy, and the thought of planning a party or event for us to get together just always seems to fall to the bottom of the list.  When Aladdin sent me some of their fab new pieces from the Aladdin Mason Entertaining Collection- I knew it was time to finally make a fun get together happen!

Easy DIY Wooden Bunny Art

Super easy DIY wooden bunny art. Perfect for Easter! Could also use scrap wood

After seeing my friend Jamie’s super cute DIY Easter Sign from Scrap Wood- I knew I wanted to make one for myself!  I’m not cool enough to have scrap wood laying around waiting for my next project… so I had to take a trip to Home Depot for a 2×4. 

This was also my first time having Home Depot cut the wood for me.  (Did you know they do that?!)  For this sign you will need 4 pieces of 17.5in 2×4.  You could really cut it to whatever length you want, depending on how big you want the finished piece to be.  You will also need one piece of 8in 2×4.  The smaller piece will be used on the back to hold the other pieces together.  I used 8 nails to hold the piece in place, 2 nails for each of the four longer pieces.

I then spray painted the front white- you don’t have to be exact on this because we will be covering it again with pink, but make sure to get a good coat in the center.  While this was drying, I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the bunny image in vinyl.  After the white coat has dried, place the bunny in the center of your rectangle.  Then give it a good once over with the pink spray paint.  Before the paint has had time to dry, peel the bunny sticker off.  I allowed the whole thing to dry, and then coated the white bunny with mod podge and white glitter.

Update: My New Beauty Routine

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G.  As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Three weeks ago I posted about my current beauty routine.  Which if you remember, was non-existent.  Since then I have been diligent about using my new routine every day, morning and night.  That alone is a small victory for me- I’ve tried multi-step programs in the past and after a few days I get lazy and start skipping days until I finally just stop doing it.  Even though this new routine required me to use three products twice a day, it was seriously so easy and I had no problem sticking with it.

I think part of the reason why it was easy for me was because of the way it made my skin feel instantly better.  Even after the first use my skin felt healthier.  If you follow me on Instagram you saw this before picture: Continue reading
