It has been ages since I have posted!!!! I wanted to post about one of the projects that we did for our backyard patio. We had a pallet that was delivered with some stone this Spring. The pallet wouldn't fit in my car so... I was able to keep it with some pursuation!
First, we pressure washed the pallet to get rid of all of the dust and stone debris. I was able to find a package of hooks at WalMart: 6 for $7.00. My husband drilled the pilot holes and then attached with hooks with the included screws.
Also, I found a slate chalkboard in the craft section at WalMart. Using chalk ink, I wrote "treats" on one side and "towels" on the other. We will be able to use the baskets for popcorn and snacks when we host backyard movie nights for our friends. When we are having sprinkler fun, we will be able to hang towels on the pallet for easy access.
One nice thing about the baskets is that they can be easily removed for smores items and taken to the firepit area, also. I am looking forward to using our "treat station" quite a bit this Summer!!!

I am a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful children... yes, I am biased... I can be... they are mine! Oh, and a military wife, too, to an amazing husband! I was a teacher of the severely emotionally disturbed for nearly 10 years before I became a mother and made the decision to stay home. No longer having the classroom as a creative outlet, I turned to photography, cake decorating, and now bow creations. I was frustrated with some of the options available as far as the price of photography (my first love) and so I began taking photographs of my children and a few clients as well. You will see more than bows showcased on this blog and I hope you enjoy the creations and become inspired as well. And, yes, Goosie and Boomer are the nicknames of my two favorite creations!
