Belle Inspired Birthday Party {Plus Free Printables}

I realized as I was going through and updating things that I had never posted Little Miss's 3rd birthday party and it's one of my absolute favorites!! 

She was Princess Belle obsessed (and still is, really!) and Mama was more than happy to oblige as Belle is my favorite too! 


There were so many fun pieces to this party and lots of easy projects to make it unique, gorgeous and budget-friendly.

Faux Brick Bathroom Update

Have you guys noticed a little bit of a difference around here? 
I took a big plunge and decided to merge my IG/blog/FB accounts under one umbrella & rebrand a bit. 

If you've been around a while, I'll still be delivering Tattered and Inked DIY, painting, crafting content as well as starting to delve into behind the scenes photography, some of the fun product photography I've gotten into as well as sharing Therapeutic fun activities for you to do at home with your kiddos! 

Hopefully things are easy to navigate and find- please let me know if you experience any issues with the new site, I'm still working out a bunch of the kinks! 

While you're having a look around at the new look, let's talk my most current project. 

I've had this idea in the back of my mind for almost two years now. We bought several faux brick panels to hang in the garage for photo backdrops- which have worked amazingly and I always wanted to install one in our kids bathroom to add some texture and interest to the wall. 

So we finally did! 



Isn't it fun?! 


'We are the Luckiest' Free Printable


Hi Friends!!
I'm so excited to be here today! My name is Kelsey and my little blogging corner of the world is over on Tattered and Inked where I share all my favorite things- projects, furniture redos,  parties & printables!!

I'm so excited to be sharing my very first printable ever over here on Mine for the Making!!

St. Patrick's Day is always a fun time in our house- 
it's one of those random holidays we just love to celebrate!
We always have mischievous things happening around our house so I like to add just a few things to make the house happy for St. Patricks.

Printables are such an easy & fun way to change up your decor and it only takes a couple of minutes! 
I usually dedicate a couple different frames around the house for changing out printables whenever I'm in the mood for a change. 

This printable comes in three different colorways and are perfect for spreading a little extra St. Patrick's Day cheer around your home!!




Quick tips for printing in case you're a newbie...

1. Click the download link below for the print you'd like to get. Then follow the prompts to download and save to your computer. 
2. Print your printable as you would any regular picture. I like to print them on white cardstock or picture paper- they tend to print better and with more vibrant colors this way. 
3. These prints are sized to be printed as large as 8x10 and will look best printed as a 5x7 or 8x10 size. 

That's pretty much all there is to it.
So get at it...just click. print. frame!!





{Quick Disclaimer}
Printables are intended as gifts for Tattered and Inked/Mine for the Making readers only.
As with all my free printables,
these are for personal use ONLY.
Please do not claim them as your own or alter them.


Some other fun ideas for using your free printable are adding it to a fun St. Patricks' Day wreath, printing them out as a card or note to slip in your hunny's wallet or lunch or adding it to a fun 'happy' gift for a friend! 

I hope you enjoy your new free print & I can't wait to share some more printable fun with you soon!! 
Have a great week!!

Easter Countdown Cards {With Free Printable!}


Swooping in today to follow up on a little project I shared on my Insta Stories earlier today and thought it might be worth sharing a bit more here!!

During Christmas, I created a 25 day countdown we hung in our foyer that counted down the days until Christmas and also had bits of the Christmas Story when you flipped it over. 
So by the 25th, we had the complete Christmas story hanging in a pretty way! 

It was so fun to see my four year old get excited each day and start memorizing various verses. She could nearly recite the whole thing by the end of it. 

So I decided last week to do an Easter version with chunks of the Easter story split up into 7 days for her to count down until the holiday. 

I added a fun twist to it this time and added quick, printable activities behind each number so we'd have mini projects to do each day as well. 

The girl loves her projects. Follows her momma's heart all the way! 

I thought I'd share our super quick set-up and share the free printables if you feel the urge to do your own :) 



When I say super easy, I mean SUPPPPER easy. The longest part will be printing and cutting. And that's not long at all.

DIY Oversized Book Page Signs

Anyone else get the itch when the Christmas decor comes down to change a few things around and freshen things up a bit? 

Just me?? 

I feel like I'm not the only one but this time, instead of changing a few arrangements (I change my tabletop/mantle decor each season pretty regularly) I actually opted to freshen up a larger area of the house. We've  had the same wall hangings up in the living room since we moved in several years and although they filled the space fabulously and have been well loved, I was ready for something new and updated.

Is it terrible that I don't even have a photo of them hanging in the new house? 
So you'll have to settle with this half photo of them in the old house...

Pink Craft Hutch Makeover

So once upon a time there was this...pretty average looking china hutch. 
It was bought several years ago with the greatest of intentions to transform it into something amazing. 
Full of sass and character. 

And then it sat. 
It collected dust in a garage for a while until the family moved and finally had the perfect place for it. 
Actually, the room was practically made for it. 
It had finally found the perfect home. 
But it was still pretty average. 

It needed to be put to work immediately. 
It held all the things. 
All the odds and ends, unfinished craft projects, supplies, pretty little things that would probably, most likely, at some point be used for something wonderful. 

And so it held all the things. 
Averagely. 

Until one day, years after it had been discovered and promised to be turned into something beautiful... it happened. 

The paint came out... the doors were taken off... and it's happily ever after began...



Ok, so I could barely keep a straight face while writing that... but it just kinda happened. 
So there's that.

Fall Mantle 2018

Long time coming but I thought I should at least share a bit of fall before Thanksgiving comes and goes! 

I put up fall decor early so I could enjoy it longer and I'm so glad I did. 
Here's a peek at our mantle fall decor this year... 



I left it light, airy and neutral this year with lots of vintage/antique touches. I loved the contrast between the flat focal point of the banner in the middle and then layering out the sides.

"The Greatest Show" Circus 4th Birthday Party

I feel like that title is pretty darn wordy. 

But the truth is, it's a pretty over the top theme for a 4 year old party I feel like!!! 
When I asked Girlie what kind of party she wanted this year, I wasn't all that surprised when she replied that she wanted a circus party because we are a little, tiny, somewhat crazy- fan girl obsessed over here about The Greatest Showman. 

We have the soundtrack on repeat and my four year old knows every word. 
Her "favorite guy' is Zac Efron and she insisted that we needed peanuts. 

It also still needed to be girly. 
Girly circus it shall be. 

So here I am to give you all the details on our super girly, glammed out circus, Greatest Show DIY party in all it's glory :)
