Easy Beachy Frame

Beachy Frame

It's no secret that I love the beach. My dream is to live on or very near the beach. To be clear, in an area that is warm year round. A beach in New York or Maine won't work. It's cold there in the winter. 

One day I was walking around at work, which happens to be at JoAnn Fabric, and I saw this project sheet that had this frame done up in patches of different colors. I don't know if it was paint or tiles or what. I decided right then that I was going to make something similar, using beachy colors. It was easy to do and didn't take too long. I think anyone can do it, no matter your craft level.

Find Activities with Vimbly

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Vimbly.com and Sverve.com. 
All opinions are 100% my own. 

You know how when you travel to a new city and you don't really know what to do or even what is available? It takes quite a lot of work sometimes to find activities that your family will enjoy. Well, I found this website called Vimbly.com and they have you covered in 18 cities around the United States. The cities they cover are above, but more are coming soon.

Vimbly shows open dates and time slots for activities, classes or dinners around the given city.  From your dashboard, you can schedule your activities and then just show up and have a great time. Doesn't that sound awesome?! 

I went in and explored their site, just to see what it was like. I picked Orlando as my city of choice, since I travel there so frequently. Across the top of the page are choices like classes, dinner, dates, watch, eat and drink. Then you pick the one you're interested in and a drop down shows up with more specific activities. When you click on the one you are interested in, the activities show up, along with the prices and dates the activity is available.

BYBC 2015 Journal


This past weekend I went to Build Your Blog Conference 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was pretty nervous about going because even though I had been last year, I was pretty much on my own this year. By that I mean that I didn't have Samantha with me as a buffer or my husband with me to talk to at night. I had them both last year. 

I rode down with two ladies, Adrienne from Freetime Frolics and Chelsey from CeeMeBe,  and while I knew them both some before I went, I didn't know either of them well. I was a little nervous about that because it's a three hour drive one way. I shouldn't have been nervous. They are super nice ladies and I'm really glad that I got to know them a little better during our six hour drive.

Tips and Tricks 4

Hello! Welcome to Tips and Tricks! Did you have a great weekend? I sure hope so. I went to a bloggers conference in Salt Lake City called Build Your Blog Conference and it was a gray weekend. I learned a lot and met some really wonderful people. I will have a post about the conference later in the week. I hope you will come back and check it out. 

I seriously slacked off on the posting last week. Between working at the beginning of the week and then going to conference, I was just crazy busy. I'm trying to get ahead of the game this week. I have so many ideas running around in my head. I just have to get them down.
