4th of July Pinspiration {plus I was featured and a possible giveaway}

Holy I was featured for the first time today!!!!! My confetti wall art was featured at Home Sweet Home for More the Merrier Monday!!! I am so excited about this!

So....I hope everyone had a great weekend! I did....I think I have mentioned this before, but we're having a big 4th of July bash at our house, so we are trying to get things done and ready. I was going to do a tutorial on our fire pit/patio, but my husband decided to the work while I wasn't home so that idea went out the window! But that's ok....I will come up with something for tomorrow don't you worry! {I might just make him help me with the tutorial on the fire pit...I'll improvise with the pictures}

I went to my first 31 Party this weekend. I was very excited about it. I have heard all kinds of things about it, but haven't ever been to a party or bought anything from them. I ended up getting two different for organizing my sewing stuff {which desperately needs organized} and a larger tote which was the special this month. If you spend $35.00 you get this huge tote for $10. So, we will wait to see if when I receive my stuff if I am impressed or not! :)

Today I am going to share some of my Pinspiration for our 4th of July Party. Hopefully I will get tutorials on all of the stuff I make or do....a party tutorial one day?!?

1.Gum Ball Flag Holders - Don't know where this came from on Pinterest. Doesn't have a tutorial or link attached to it. So I'm sorry if you came up with this...please let me know and I will link back.

2.Red Hot Rocket Wreath - I love this. I might change up the rocket and do something else there, but very cute...seems easy too!

3.Berry Bliss Rocket Pops - Umm....these look amazingly delish. Refreshing on a hot 4th of July {keep your fingers crossed :)}

4. Red White and Blue Star Sidewalk Chalk - Super cute, super for the kidders at your party!

5. Lawn Stars - What a great idea for a walkway to the fun!

6. Pinwheels - Who doesn't love pinwheels...right?!

7. American Flag Bunting Banner - The link to this one is actually an Etsy shop...but I think I can make that pretty easy.

Do you have any Pinspiration for the 4th of July? Are you doing anything special?

p.s. Head on over to The Life of an "Ordinary" Housewife's Facebook page...when I reach 20 likes, I will do a giveaway from my Etsy Store! Stop over to the Shop's page too while you're at it. Actually, if either page gets 20 likes I will do a giveaway!!
