Kitchen Renovation Project: Quartz Countertop

Hey guys, today is a beautiful day and I feel so happy!  Why you wonder?  Because I finally got my Quartz Countertop Installed!  It has been such a long a torturous time working on this kitchen.  We have had a lot of set backs and many frustrating moments.  When my husband and I first started this project we were thinking about how beautiful the kitchen would be and how great it will be to have all this extra space and function.  So today I though I’d share with you some sneaky pics of our beautiful countertops.

DIY Dollar Tree Sticker Organizer

Hello my wonderful friends!

I love my planner, I love decorating it, writing down my schedule for the week and I also love adding my adorable stickers, washi and more to my planner.   When I sit down to plan for the week, I like to have my planner supply on hand and ready for use. I used to have my stickers in a binder and that worked for a small time but I found myself not placing my stickers back in the binder.  I just never liked it, it wasn’t for me.  I didn’t like that my stickers would fly out of the page protectors or the fact that to keep them in place I had to use my paper clips.

So I went to work designing a planner organizational system that would work for me (for the time being).  I upcycled an old frozen pizza box I had for some time and decided to design my planner organization.

Below is a video I made sharing my step by step instruction for the Sticker Organizer:

I hope this inspires you to create an organizational system for your planner sticker supplies!  If you do create an organizer I would love to see it on Instagram (and cheer you on!) make sure to use the hashtag #hipncreative or tag me @hipncreative.  Thank you so much for stopping by! Until next time guys I hope you have a wonderful day!

DIY Moana Inspired Maui Fish Hook

I’m back with another tutorial for you guys.  Like I mentioned before we previously celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday (you can find the tutorial here).  The party was Moana themed – which is one of our favorite movies so far.  We decided to make our own Maui Fish hook.  I’m very proud of my girl because she did the majority of the project herself and I think she did a phenomenal job!

What you’ll need…

  • White foam board (Dollar Tree)
  • carboard
  • Brown Marker or paint
  • Glue Gun and sticks
  • white painters tape (dollar tree)
  • White paint (found at craft stores)

DIY Moana Inspired Palm Trees

A while ago we celebrated my youngest daughters birthday.  She was turning 10 and wanted a Moana themed birthday party.  I prefer to DIY as much of my kids party decor as I can because a) it’s sometimes cheaper for me to use whatever left over products I have and b)  I’m crazy like that and like to torture myself with extra work!

I recruited my daughter to help me with this project and I have to say it was a super simple project and we had so much fun working together.  So let’s get started..

What you’ll need..

  • Bamboo skewers (Dollar Tree or Supermarket) cut in half
  • Paper towel rolls or toilet paper
  • Brown paper bags
  • tape or glue
  • Green Paper
  • 2″ foam ball (Dollar Tree or Craft store) cut in half
  • Flower Pot  (Dollar Tree)
  • rocks (Dollar tree)

Directions…

Thank you so much for joining me today.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and if you do create your own palm trees, please make sure to share your talents with me on Instagram using the hashtag #hipnreative or tag me @hipncreative so I can peep your mad skills and cheer you on!
