Car Shirt

For Father's Day this year, I wanted to do something fun for my dad. I saw this tutorial on Pinterest, and knew that I needed to do this. My dad has 4 granddaughters (& 1 grandson on the way). I thought this would be fantastic for when all the kids were over.

This shirt is so not my idea, I am not that amazing. I got the tutorial & the prints at The Blue Basket (click name for link). It was a hit!! I changed a little to the print- as my daughter picked out Police cars for the shirt because her daddy is a Police Officer. So we changed the Fire Dept building to a Police Dept, added a runway for the plane, and we added a Jail (totally free handed that, and it's not the best, but for someone that can't draw, it was pretty good! lol!)


Started out printing the layout, and taping it together. It didn't print it all, so I had to draw missing pieces.
Placed the shirt on my kids princess table, and slid the layout underneath to trace.
Here are the cars my 3 year old picked out. My husband was very proud of her!
I bought just the cheap fabric markers. I didn't feel like paying $10+ just for fabric markers... Thanks Crayola!
Let the tracing begin...
I called the town "Papaville" for my dad! :)
I decided to add tracings of my daughters hands for memory sake. It was adorable.
All done!
The girls LOVED it!
My dad said it actually felt pretty good on his back!

Windex Touch-Up Cleaner

Bought this today, and I love it! The idea is fantastic! I dislike getting bottles of cleaner out just to clean up little messes... This little thing can sit on my counter, and it's just brilliant. I figure, when I run out of the cleaner that it came with, I can refill it with my choice of cleaner OR even a homemade cleaner (like Lemon essential oil).
Silly little post. But I am sold on this bottle.

Our Favorite Drying Rack

I know I am crazy, but I don't use our dryer for a lot of our clothes. Our daughters are both super tall, so I don't want their clothes to be shrinking. I also don't like any of my clothes to be dried... The husband learned that the first month of our marriage. Those pants never were the same.... Hahaha


Before I bought this rack, my house would be COVERED in clothing as it dried. The house smelled fabulous, but it was soooooo annoying to have clothes everywhere.

One day we were at my brother & sister's house, she showed me their drying rack and I fell in love. Silly I know. But I know others will feel the same if they air dry their clothes.

We bought this rack about a week ago, and LOVE it. It is fantastic. The shelves fold up. They hold a lot of clothes. It fits PERFECTLY in our little laundry room. Ahhh. Love it.


It was purchased at Ikea. Only $34.99
